    Elton John - Candle In The Wind

    1986 song

  • Though I never knew you at all
  • You had the grace to hold yourself
  • While those around you crawled
  • They crawled out of the woodwork
  • And they whispered into your brain
  • They set you on the treadmill
  • And they made you change your name
  • And it seems to me, you lived your life like a candle in the wind
  • Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
  • And I would have liked to know you, but I was just a kid
  • Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did
  • Loneliness was tough
  • The toughest role you ever played
  • Hollywood created a superstar
  • And pain was the price you paid
  • Even when you died
  • All the press still hounded you
  • All the papers had to say
  • Was that Marilyn was found in the nude
  • And it seems to me, you lived your life like a candle in the wind
  • Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
  • And I would have liked to know you, but I was just a kid
  • Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did
  • Goodbye, Norma Jean
  • Though I never knew you at all
  • You had the grace to hold yourself
  • While those around you crawled
  • Goodbye, Norma Jean
  • From the young man in the twenty-second row
  • Who sees you as something more than sexual
  • More than just our Marilyn Monroe
  • And it seems to me, you lived your life like a candle in the wind
  • Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
  • And I would have liked to know you, but I was just a kid
  • Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did
  • Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did

    Elton John - Candle In The Wind-003:55

    Elton John - Candle In The Wind-0

    1997 song

  • May you ever grow in our hearts
  • You were the grace that placed itself
  • Where lives were torn apart
  • You called out to our country
  • And you whispered to those in pain
  • Now you belong to heaven
  • And the stars spell out your name
  • And it seems to me you lived your life
  • Like a candle in the wind
  • Never fading with the sunset
  • When the rain set in
  • And your footsteps will always fall here
  • Along England's greenest hills
  • Your candle's burned out long before
  • Your legend ever will
  • Loveliness we've lost
  • These empty days without your smile
  • This torch we'll always carry
  • For our nation's golden child
  • And even though we try
  • The truth brings us to tears
  • All our words cannot express
  • The joy you brought us through the years
  • And it seems to me you lived your life
  • Like a candle in the wind
  • Never fading with the sunset
  • When the rain set in
  • And your footsteps will always fall here
  • Along England's greenest hills
  • Your candle's burned our long before
  • Your legend ever will
  • Goodbye England's rose
  • May you ever grow in our hearts
  • You were the grace that placed itself
  • Where lives were torn apart
  • Goodbye England's rose
  • From a country lost without your soul
  • Who'll miss the wings of your compassion
  • More than you'll ever know
  • And it seems to me you lived your life
  • Like a candle in the wind
  • Never fading with the sunset
  • When the rain set in
  • And you footsteps will always fall here
  • Along England's greenest hills
  • Your candle's burned out long before
  • Your legend ever will
