  • When you was seventeen and I was nineteen
    We feel deep in love growing up in Queens
    We didn't know a thing about love
    We was innocent sneakin' on the doorstep to hug
    Held you tightly and promised you the world
    You gave me hickeys and said you was my girl
    When I think about it now makes me smile
    Cause I ain't felt these butterflies in a while

    Funny how you grow up and innocence fades
    We used to live for love but now we're afraid (Of what?)
    Of the darkness and bitter memories
    Lovers who crushed us through infidelity
    I promised you I'd love you to the end
    Always and forever since way back when
    You're like candy the world's sweetest friend
    You taste better now than you did back then

    You will always be my candy
    One day we will start a family
    You will always be my candy girl
    (You'll be my candy girl forever)
    You will always be my candy
    Want your love girl, understand me
    You will always be my candy girl

    While you sucked caramel apple lollipops
    Rain sleet or snow I'm troopin' up the murdock
    We used to walk down the block hold hands
    I would get you after school 'cause I was your man
    And any guys that want to socialize
    Just know that I'm a flip on any cat that tries
    My peeps used to say I was whipped
    All your girls said since you got with him you flipped
    But uh they couldn't feel the feelings we felt
    Mirrors on the ceiling we melt
    I would look up at ya I remember
    The afternoon you surrendered
    We made love the temperature was high as could be
    You said "Todd promise you ain't lyin' to me"
    And as we went our separate ways you turned back
    Smiled, I remember all that


    (Take it to the bridge)
    Candy girl
    You are my world
    Look so sweet
    You're a special treat
    Candy girl
    All I want to say
    I need your love
    Each and every day

    When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall
    And in the back of my mind I hear my memories call
    Of days when love was true I slept and held you
    Taste the brown sugar, let your climax melt you
    Candy you're occupying all of my thoughts
    Turned my soul upside down with lessons you taught
    I can feel you even when you're far away you're right here wit' me
    Sweet love strictly
    And I'm a bend over backwards to keep you on my side
    Take you for a mental and emotional ride
    Make love to your soul, your heart, and your mind
    In your hour of need girl, I'll be there every time
    And as long as you support my dreams
    Stayin' right beside me as a part of my team
    I'll take you where the average man can only dream of
    Cause in a world so sour I got the sweetest love


    Candy girl
    You are my world
    Look so sweet
    You're a special treat
    (You'll be my candy girl forever)
    Candy girl
    All I want to say
    (Word is bond sweetheart)
    I need your love
    (I swear I'm down for whatever)
    Candy girl
    (sometimes you gotta go back home)
    Look so sweet
    (I love you)
