Sex and Candy Lyrics

Hangin round
Downtown by myself
And i had so much time to sit and think about myself
And there she was
Like double cherry pie
Yeah there she was
Like disco superfly

I smell sex and candy here
Whos that loungin in my chair
Whos that...

    I love how this shit just flew right over the heads of all the mainstream radio folks for years. Sex and Candy is referring to sex on methamphetamine. Candy is slang for meth. Also the "she" in the song is most likely referring to the meth not an actual woman. As the song is more likely referring to gay sex or at the very least anal sex. Hence the smell of sex and candy. "Who's that casting deviant stares in my direction" portrays the paranoia associated with amphetamine psychosis. He's sitting alone having had too much caffeine "trying to fill the void left by the lack of meth" and then there she was, "meth" tempting him. After days on meth everything begins to feel like a dream.

    I think its meaning he smells her perfume and it might smell like a certain fragrance

    It is about a prostitute that he found downtown, and took back to his room.

    I seen the interpretations of this song and they all mention that the singer himself claimed that the phrase "sex and candy" was one given by his friend who walked in on the singer and his girlfriend (at the time).

    That part is cleared up but the rest of the song has a much different feel to it.

    The music video and the lyrics have a very lonely and somber undertone to it. In fact it goes two ways and I will be brief about it:

    He is literally dreaming of someone unattainable in real life and his attitude seems to be more of a look but don't touch sort of idea. At the same time it could be parallel to a woman in real life that he fantasizes about and can literally dream about her. Either way, he is isolated from he because he has no way of reaching her. The song itself, however, is tongue in cheek. You don't need to feel awful about those who you can't get with, rather marvel at them and let go of loneliness, possibly a message of encouragement to stop dreaming and start taking action on a women you took so much time to marvel at.
