Candle In The Wind
1997

Goodbye England`s Rose
May you ever grow in our hearts.
You were the grace that placed
itselfWhere 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
name1.And it seems to me you lived your
lifeLike a candle in the
wind²: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
before³Your legend ever
will.Loveliness we`ve lost;
These empty days without your smile.
This torch we`ll always carry
For our nation`s golden child4.
And even though we try,The
truth brings us to tears;All our words cannot express
The joy you brought us through the
years.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.
