    Candle in the Wind (Live)

    [Verse 1]
    Goodbye, Norma Jeane
    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

    [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've liked to have known you
    But I was just a kid
    Your candle burned out long bеfore
    Your legend еver did

    [Verse 2]
    Loneliness was tough
    The toughest role you ever played
    Hollywood created a superstar
    And pain was the price you paid
    And even when you died
    Oh, the press still hounded you
    All the papers had to say
    Was that Marilyn was found in the nude

    [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've liked to have loved you
    But I was just a kid
    Your candle burned out long before
    Your legend ever did

    [Verse 3]
    Goodbye, Norma Jeane
    Though I never knew 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 as something more than sexual
    More than just our Marilyn Monroe

    [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've liked to know you
    But I was just a kid
    Your candle burned out long before
    Your legend ever did

    [Outro]
    I would've liked to have known you
    Oh, but I was just a kid
    Your candle burned out long before
    Your legend ever did
