Palmer, Amanda - Sandy's Song Lyrics

And the last thing I'd recall
Her body standing on the stove
Sandy wiping her grey eyes
I was pleased and frightened
To see a grownup woman cry
She blamed her housemaid for her mind
But I think that they all knew it had to happen some time

I had rushed home from school
To see my favorite show
And as it happened, it was deadly cold that day
And as I peeled my mittens frozen to my wrists with snow
I swore I heard a voice come from the living room
And say:

And when I peered into that room
My little afternoon took sick
Sandy hanging from the light
Her Levis wrapped around her neck

It was a sight to see
Old Sandy finally seeing me
And though she couldn't speak
I had a sinking feeling that she would have said:
"Oh, darling....more mascara"

She looked so peaceful in the air
The lightbulb shining in her hair
Her face was free
It frightened me
She looked happy
I guess she found the difference

And I thought about the joke
Where the man keeps up his rotting wife
She had maggots in her mouth
I wonder if what she thought right now

And then the car drove up
And then the car drove up
And I remember sleeping
And I remember sleeping...

And they wrapped her up and drove away
And now I have this crazy fantasy...

What if Sandy died in front of me?

Palmer, Amanda Sandy's Song Comments
  1. Eva Hutterer

    I used to have a bootleg with this and other old songs on it...does someone know what it is called? (the recording) Would love to look that up again...

  2. themonkboughtlunch

  4. pootoogook

    After reading your comment I looked up at the screen and it was her holding up the "It Is" sign XD it's totally porn and it was intended XD

  5. sadiethegoat

    When was this recorded? She sounds so young.

    Brynn Seana

    her voice reminds me of evelyn evelyn in this song. not sure but it's interesting. other thing is sandy is mentioned in evelyn evelyn so it might be from that time frame.

    Ryan Ouellette

    I know these recordings were pre-Dresden Dolls, I used to have quite a few of these early recordings, but my old Macbook was stolen and they went with it. So to answer your question these are from at least 20 years ago, maybe 25.

  6. Emily Darling

    Emilie & Amanda are the best musicians of all time. :3
    I love them both too!

    Both of their voices are so unique <3

    Sandy fishnets is a few media semi famous stories that are mixed into the lyrics.... Uncle gerald is Gerald Friend who was a child rapist and kidnapper.... Christmas 1993, Mrs Bulger.... Jeremy Bulger was murdered in November 1993... was a toddler that was kidnapped by those 2 evil boys and murdered...they kidnapped him from the mall right in front of his mom when she was not looking.... i'm not sure why the song is called sandy fisnets tho... sandy hook? uh oh.... did i say that....

  8. Katerina Louloudi

    I don't think that this is Sandy Fishnets, because Sandy Fishnets is a story from Evelyn's life, and this Sandy one from Amanda's.

    Also, the environment, where the story takes place, is different

    Modern Moonlight

    It can be reference tho.

  9. PyleanHedgehog

    Thank you, I just corrected the lyrics :)

  10. VictorianMadLizzie

    Oh my,she looks like Emilie Autumn @ 0:05 <3<3<3I love them both!

  11. haselni

    I think it's her "little abdomen", not her afternoon, that took sick in the lyrics.

  12. Tesa the Moo

    You can hear how young she is, her voice isn't as strong. And the diction just adds to it, she was more formal. She's grown up a lot.

  13. issheawitch _

    So that's what became of Sandy Fishnets!

  14. Артём Водоватов

    If i had to live with amanda id kill myself too!!! Haha just kidding. I love Amanda's music and she seems like a great person.

  15. Lucy Rose

    What if Sandy died in front of me?
