Elton John - "Candle in the wind 97" lyrics

Goodbye England's rose;
where lives were torn apart.

may you ever grow in our hearts.
You were the grace that placed itself

You called out to our country,

and you whispered to those in pain.

Now you belong to heaven,
And it seems to me you lived your life
like a candle in the wind:
and the stars spell out your name.
when the rain set in.
never fading with the sunset

along England's greenest hills;
And your footsteps will always fall here,
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

Goodbye England's rose,
from a country lost without your soul,
the joy you brought us through the years.
who'll miss the wings of your compassion
more than you'll ever know
