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 (a-a-a-h...) who to cling to when the rain set in
I would (ah... ah-ah-ah) have liked to know you but I was just a kid

Your candle burned out
(ah-ah-ah-ah...) long before your legend ever did
Loneliness was tough 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 (a-a-a-h...) who to cling to when the rain set in
I would have (ah... ah-ah-ah) liked to know you but I was just a kid

Your candle burned out
(ah-ah-ah-ah...) 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
(ooh...) Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man in the twenty second row
Who sees you (ooh-ooh-ooh...) as something more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe
(ah-ah-ah-ah...) And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind
Never knowing (a-a-a-h...) who to cling to when the rain set in
I would (ah...) have liked to know you (ah-ah-ah...) but I was just a kid
Your candle burned out
(ah-ah-ah-ah...) long before your legend ever did
Your candle burned out
(ah-ah-ah-ah...) long before your legend ever did
