Lyrics
Oh Candy took a while to make up her mind
Crazy Jimbo's got it under control
But she softly dreams of gently rocking in his arms
But he's on fire - just wants to blow it all
'Baby wants you more than you'll ever know'
Come back to me - I heard the voice of reason say
Dont come near - youv'e taken everything
What the hell am I supposed to do?
Its so strange I think I love you but I find myself alone again
Theres no reason why
He should make you cry
When there are people just like you and me singing
Just get out just get out while you can
Dont lose out just move out - leave that man

Oh she's seen the road running over stormy troubled land
Wide eyed child got nowhere left to run
Gliding down the aisle in a crimson gown
For all the world like there was no tomorrow man
Caned and crowned into that false submission
Tell him its all over your'e really gone
change your name and change your number anything it takes you know
Theres no reason why..

Quirky, but I like it...
I've noticed that you really won't be tied to a genre (& why the hell should you) but this type I really like.
Sounds like it was pretty much written to tape, rather than being written & arranged first, then recorded - but, other than the over-long instrumental ending, I think it works well.
I'm guessing this is an early track? Portastudio mentioned, rather than Protools, in which case, nice job on limited gear.

indeed...
early is the word.tend to be alot more spontaneous working with tape - I kind of miss the little glitches you get when punching in that you dont get with digital.Style changes - I think I'm musically schizophrenic! Thnk you

Retro and interesting
There's no reason why we can't be happy, your song is saying to me. Justy go to a place where you can be free. Not so easy, but easier than staying, in retrospect. Love the retro feel, the happy tune. Head bopping and another joy, juxtaposed with harder edged lyrics. The choice of synth strings, toward the end, kind of lacks the clarity of the piano and voice, consider using something with more depth and crystalline character, more of an FM sound; and consider adding something with an edge to capture the difficult life she is trying to free herself from. Very nice tune. The second version has very cool lyrics.

retro..
its weird how some things sound old when you only just wrote them - I guess its the choice of chords.I always found it fascinating the obsession 60's artists had with that particular chord - a sort of C major to Bb Major with C in the bass.I love the soundtrack to Barbarella - its full of that chord progression.Thanks Tobin -
