Elton John - "Candle In The Wind Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

Goodbye Norma Jean
You had the grace to hold yourself
Though I never knew you at all
They crawled out of the woodwork
While those around you crawled
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
Never knowing who to cling to
Like a candle in the wind
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you

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

From the young man in the 22nd row
Goodbye Norma Jean
More than just our Marilyn Monroe
Who sees you as something as more than sexual
