CANDLE IN THE WIND (2)
CANDLE IN THE WIND – 1997
IN LOVING MEMORY OF DIANA SPENCER “PRINCESS OF WALES” ELTHON JOHN
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.
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 we'll 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 brought us through the years.
( Rpt 1,2 )
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. ( Rpt 1, # )
