Candle in the Wind 1997 – Elton John

Written by: Elton John and Bernie Taupin

Goodbye England’s Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
You called out to our country
And you whispered to those in pain
Now you belong to heaven
And the stars spell out your name

[Chorus:]
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along England’s greenest hills
Your candle’s burned out long before
Your legend ever will

Loveliness we’ve lost
These empty days without your smile
This torch will always carry
For our nation’s golden child
And even though we try
The truth brings us to tears
All our words cannot express
The joy you’ve brought us through the years

[Chorus]

Goodbye England’s Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where lives were torn apart
Goodbye England’s Rose
From a country lost without your soul
Who’ll miss the wings of your compassion
More than you’ll ever know

[Chorus]

And your footsteps will always fall here
Along England’s greenest hills
Your candle’s burned out long before
Your legend ever will

I like a lot of things but 90s American pop culture is my jam.
