Lyrics

You were the candy woman
With the golden hand that was you
But your lips weren't so sweet
And your tongue was untrue
She was an angel of mercy
Born under a bad sign
Bad luck followed her down
But she was ultimately fine

You and I, we ain't losers
Whatever you say
We're pretty good at just hanging out
But she couldn't live that way
Tell me why, why do you try
To clone all your friends
Are you satisfied
Now there's one less of them

She wrote 'remember my name'
In lipstick on the tile
Well, I guess you might
I guess you might for a little while
(For a little while)
She wrote it, and you read the words
Did you stop and think about them
When you were telling your friends

Well, you got to tell the tale
Yeah, you got to break the news
And those tears sure looked real
Everyone felt sorry for you
But there is something yellow
On your fingertips
I look around me
There's no glamour in this

She wrote 'remember my name'
In lipstick on the tile
Well, I guess you might
I guess you might for a little while
(For a little while)
She wanted just a little more respect
Stop and think about it
You're talking 'bout a princess

Well, I went back
I went back to her room
To find her candle and her
And her silver spoon
Already, there's a new girl moving in
She says, she says
She don't need these things
But she'll find out soon enough
What went on around here
She'll find out soon enough
What happens here

She wrote 'remember my name'
In lipstick on the tile
Well, I guess you might
I guess you might for a little while
(For a little while)
I know now, oh, she would not be satisfied
But it felt so good
It felt so good for a little while
(For a little while)
She wanted just a little more time
Stop and think about it
You're talking 'bout a princess
