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 [CHORUS] 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 [repeat CHORUS] 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 twenty second row Who sees you as something more than sexual More than just our Marilyn Monroe [repeat CHORUS] Your candle burned out long before Your legend ever did
