Alaina, Lauren - Candle In The Wind 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 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 who was found in the nude

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

Your legend ever did

    @Hurricanick Glad about what? She looks good now like she did when she had the weight. Nothing much to be glad about since it didnt affect YOUR life.

  17. JaCory

    @lizabth247 It was Elton John week on American Idol. Let it go.

  18. JaCory

    @lizabth247 It was Elton John week and they all had to perform one of his songs. WHO THE HELL CARES if she wasnt alive at the time? It's just a song. She sang it beautifully. As far as I know, ANYONE can sing whatever the hell they want, last time i checked.

    I love scotty,But lauren is sooo amazing she should of won!

  20. lizabth247

    @MsMichelleElise Listen, I'm not saying she didn't do a good job singing it. I'm saying that country music needs to stop remaking songs. This is Elton John's song. He changed the words when his friend Princess Diana died. It is his song, and I just don't think it should be redone, by anyone. Also, "alne, plz, n, and ty" are not words. So don't use them, it makes you seem uneducated.

  22. Hurricanick

    I met her recently. She lost a lot of weight! I'm glad!

  23. emmaryrose95

    She has a gorgeous voice, of course. But I'm not so sure she captures the emotion so well as Elton John.

    Still, this is nice. =)

  24. Duh Cem

    is this scotty mcreery girlfriends??

  25. lizabth247

    Rip off of Elton John. It's a beautiful song no doubt, but Elton John had so much emotion behind it, and he understood the context. And she wasn't just a kid when Marylin Monroe died, she wasn't even alive. I love country music, but there are just some songs it needs to leave alone.

  26. fmc712
