Candle   In   The   Wind   by   Elton   John




Goodbye Norma Jeane,
Though I never know 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 made you change your name.

Chorus
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 burned out long before, Your legend never 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, The press still hounded you, All the papers had to say, Was that Marilyn was found in the nude. Goodbye Norma Jeane, Though I never know you at all, You had the grace to hold yourself, While those around you crawled. Goodbye Norma Jeane, From the young man in the 22nd row, Who sees you something more than sexual, More than just our Marilyn Monroe.


I've Been Kissed by you times.
