Candel in the vind - Elton John

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 liked to have known you
but I was just a kid.
Your candle had 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,
oh, 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...

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 Marilyn Monroe.

And it seems to me you lived your life...
