Elton John - Candle In the Wind




This video is an original version
that Elton John written for Marilyn Monroe on 1973

Artist: Elton John
Song: Candle In the Wind
Album: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973)

Goodbye Norma Jean,
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 like to have known you,
But I was just a kid,
You candle burned out long before,
The legend ever did.

Lonliness was tough,
The toughest role you ever played,
Hollywood created a superstar,
And the pain was the price you paid.
Even when you died,
The press still hounded you,
All the papers had to say,
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude.

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 22nd row,
Who sees you as something more than sexual,
More than just our Marilyn Monroe.

Elton John Candle in the wind 1997/goodbye english's rose


Goodbye England's rose
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
