Candy Says
The Velvet Underground Lyrics


Candy says (Candy says)
I've come to hate my body
And all that it requires in this world
Candy says (Candy says)
I'd like to know completely
What others so discretely talk about

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when I'm older
What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me

Candy says (Candy says)
I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste of what will be
Candy says (Candy says)
I hate the big decisions
That cause endless revisions in my mind

I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when I'm older
What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me

Do-do-wah
Do, do-do-wah
Do, do-do-wah
Do, do-do-wah
Do, do-do-wah
Do

I can't even begin to describe how much this song means to me as a trans person. The first time I heard it I started bawling, it was like someone was reading my mind. So beautiful and heartbreaking.

This is the first time I went back to this song since before I started my transition. It brought many memories and made me realise how far I've come. Everyday I struggle not to internalize my family's hatred towards me, but it's hard and I often question whether the whole transition was a good idea. Hearing this song now tho... I realised a dream so hard to realise. My whole life it seemed like something impossible, out of reach. But here I am now - I walked away from "me" and what I see is that it was worth it!
