"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 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 was found in the nude 
 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
