Elton John Lyrics
Candle In The Wind
Goodbye Norma JeanThough I never knew you at allYou had the grace to hold yourselfWhile those around you crawledThey crawled out of the woodworkAnd they whispered into your brainThey set you on the treadmill

And they made you change your name

And it seems to me you lived your lifeLike a candle in the windNever knowing who to cling toWhen the rain set inAnd I would have liked to have known youBut I was just a kidYour candle burned out long before

Your legend ever did

Loneliness was toughThe toughest role you ever playedHollywood created a superstarAnd pain was the price you paidEven when you diedOh the press still hounded youAll the papers had to say

Was that Marilyn was found in the nude

Goodbye Norma JeanFrom the young man in the 22nd rowWho sees you as something as more than sexual

More than just our Marilyn Monroe
