Elton John - 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 22nd 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.



Elton John - Your song

It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
I'm not one of those, who can easily hide.
I don't have much money, but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live.



If I was a sculptor, huh, but then again no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song, and this one's for you



And you can tell everybody, this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done.
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind,
That I put down in words,
How wonderful life is while you're in the world.


I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses, well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you, that keep it turned on


So excuse me forgetting, but these things I do
You see I've forgotten, if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is, what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen


And you can tell everybody, this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world


I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
That I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world.
