'Candle In The Wind'

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 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
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 ever did

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 as more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

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 ever did
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Sobre Candle In The Wind

  • Inevitablemente al escuchar esta canción "Candle in the Wind" muchos de nosotros la asociamos y recordamos el fallecimiento de la Princesa Diana,  ya que fue el mismo Elton John  quien la interpretó en su funeral. 

  • "Candle In The Wind" no es una canción escrita originalmente para Diana, como podría pensarse. Esta tema fue escrito en honor a la gran diva Marilyn Monroe, quien había fallecido 11 años antes. 

  • Al inicio de la canción original, como una forma de despedida, Elton señala "Goodbye Norma Jean", pues se refiere al nombre real de Monroe. 

  • En 1997, John realizó un "remake" de la canción cambiando la primera frase por "Good Bye england's Rose" como homenaje a Diana, Princesa de Gales.
