“Candle In the Wind” by Elton John

Candle in the Wind” is a song with music by Elton John and lyrics by Bernie Taupin. It was originally written in 1973, in honor of Marilyn Monroe, who had died 11 years earlier.

In 1997, John performed a remake of the song as a tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales. This version of the song was released as a single, and reached No. 1 in many countries, proving a much greater success than the original.

LYRICS

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 namechorusAnd 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 didLoneliness 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[repeat chorus]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 more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe[repeat chorus]Please enable Javascript and Flash to view this Flash video.

Adiós Norma Jean

Aunque nunca te conocí

Tenías la gracia de sostenerte a ti misma

Mientras aquellos arrastrados alrededor de ti

Se arrastraban fuera de la carpintería

Y susurraban en tu cabeza

Ellos te ataron  a la rutina

Y te hicieron cambiar el nombre

Y me parece que viviste tu vida

Como una vela en el viento

Sin saber a quién aferrarse

Cuando la lluvia empieza

Y me hubiera gustado haberte conocido

Pero era solo un niño

Tu vela se apago antes de tiempo

Tu leyenda nunca morirá

La soledad fue dura

El más duro papel que te toco interpretar

Hollywood creó una súper estrella

Y doloroso fue el precio que pagaste

Incluso cuando moriste

Oh la prensa aún te acosa

Todos los diarios han dicho

Que Marilyn fue encontrada desnuda

Adiós Norma Jean

Para el hombre joven de la fila 22

Quién te vio como algo más que un símbolo sexual

Más que solo Marilyn Monroe
