Candy was 16
I was 23
Home from the army
On Christmas leave
Crosby, Stills & Nash
In our heads
"Guinevere" the song
As we lay in bed

Candy
We were so close
We were in love
So long ago
Candy
Do you reminisce?
Do you look back
And think of us?

There was a dark cloud
Hanging over me
It was Vietnam
I didn't feel free
When the orders came
I got lucky
Germany is where
The army sent me

Candy
We were so close
We were in love
So long ago
Candy
Do you reminisce?
Do you look back
And you think of us?

Bridge:
Crosby, Stills & Nash singing
"As she turns her gaze
Down the slope to the harbor
Where I lay anchored for a day"

Solo

It's an old story
It's sad but so true
It was Candy's friend
Sent me the news
Candy found someone
And she was his
Sometimes even now
I wonder where she is

Candy
We were so close
We were in love
So long ago
Candy
Do you reminisce?
Do you look back
And think of us?

Spoken:
Candy turned her gaze one last time
As I boarded the plane for Europe
I knew it was over but comforted myself
That she'd be waiting when I returned

Of course life is not always that way
Candy had moved on when I got home
I feel her beside me 44 years later
And think love never completely dies

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
