candle in the wind


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 know you
but i was just a kid
your candle burned out long before
your legend never 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 was found in the nude

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 know you
but i was just a kid
your candle burned out long before
your legend never did

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 as more than sexual
more than just our marilyn monroe

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 know you
but i was just a kid
your candle burned out long before
your legend never did

your candle burned out long before
your legend never did

your song

it's a little bit funny this feeling inside
i'm not one of those who can easily hide
i don't have much money but boy if i did
i'd buy a big house where we both could live

if i was a sculptor, but then again, no
or a man who makes potions and a travels insured
i know it's not much but it's the best i can do
my gift is my song and this one's for you

and you can tell everybody this is your song
it may be quite simple but now that it's done
i hope you don't mind
i hope you don't mind that i put down in words
how wonderful life is while you're in the world

i sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
but the sun's been quite kind while i wrote this song
it's for people like you that keep it turned on

so excuse me forgetting but these things i do
you see i've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
anyway the thing is what i really mean
yours are the sweetest eyes i've ever seen

and you can tell everybody this is your song
it may be quite simple but now that it's done
i hope you don't mind
i hope you don't mind that i put down in words
how wonderful life is while you're in the world

i hope you don't mind
i hope you don't mind that i put down in words
how wonderful life is while you're in the world

goodbye yellow brick road

when are you gonna come down
when are you going to land
i should have stayed on the farm
i should have listened to my old man

you know you can't hold me forever
i didn't sign up with you
i'm not a present for your friends to open
this boy's too young to be singing the blues

so goodbye yellow brick road
where the dogs of society howl
you can't plant me in your penthouse
i'm going back to my plough

back to the howling old owl in the woods
hunting the horny back toad
oh i've finally decided my future lies
beyond the yellow brick road

what do you think you'll do then
i bet that'll shoot down your plane
it'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
to set you on your feet again

maybe you'll get a replacement
there's plenty like me to be found
mongrels who ain't got a penny
sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground

so goodbye yellow brick road
where the dogs of society howl
you can't plant me in your penthouse
i'm going back to my plough

back to the howling old owl in the woods
hunting the horny back toad
oh i've finally decided my future lies
beyond the yellow brick road

don't go breaking my heart

don't go breaking my heart
i couldn't if i tried
honey if i get restless
baby you're not that kind

don't go breaking my heart
you take the weight off me
honey when you knock on my door
i gave you my key

nobody knows it
when i was down
i was your clown
nobody knows it
right from the start
i gave you my heart
i gave you my heart

so don't go breaking my heart
i won't go breaking your heart
don't go breaking my heart

and nobody told us
`cause nobody showed us
and now it's up to us babe
i think we can make it

so don't misunderstand me
you put the light in my life
you put the sparks to the flame
i've got your heart in my sights

nobody knows it
when i was down
i was your clown
nobody knows it
right from the start
i gave you my heart
i gave you my heart

so don't go breaking my heart
i won't go breaking your heart
don't go breaking my heart

nobody knows it
when i was down
i was your clown
nobody knows it
right from the start
i gave you my heart
i gave you my heart

so don't go breaking my heart
i won't go breaking your heart

don't go breaking my
i wont go breaking your heart

tiny dancer

ue jean baby, l.a. lady, seamstress for the band
pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
and now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

jesus freaks out in the street
handing tickets out for god
turning back she just laughs
the boulevard is not that bad

piano man he makes his stand
in the auditorium
looking on she sings the songs
the words she knows, the tune she hums

but oh how it feels so real
lying here with no one near
only you and you can hear me
when i say softly, slowly

hold me closer tiny dancer
count the headlights on the highway
lay me down in sheets of linen
you had a busy day today

blue jean baby, l.a. lady, seamstress for the band
pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
and now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

can you feel the love tonight

there's a calm surrender to the rush of day
when the heat of a rolling world can be turned away
an enchanted moment, and it sees me through
it's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you

and can you feel the love tonight
it is where we are
it's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
that we got this far
and can you feel the love tonight
how it's laid to rest
it's enough to make kings and vagabonds
believe the very best

there's a time for everyone if they only learn
that the twisting kaleidoscope moves us all in turn
there's a rhyme and reason to the wild outdoors
when the heart of this star-crossed voyager beats in time with yours

and can you feel the love tonight
it is where we are
it's enough for this wide-eyed wanderer
that we got this far
and can you feel the love tonight
how it's laid to rest
it's enough to make kings and vagabonds
believe the very best

it's enough to make kings and vagabonds
believe the very best
