Song lyrics
Goodbye England's rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed itself
Where 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 name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along England's greenest hills
Your candles burned out long before
Your legend ever will

Loveliness we've lost
These empty days without your smile
This torch we'll always carry
For our nation's golden child
Even though we try
The truth brings us to tears
All our words cannot express
The joy you've brought us through the years

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along England's greenest hills
Your candles burned out long before
Your legend ever will

Goodbye England's rose
May you ever grow in our hearts
You were the grace that placed yourself
Where lives were torn apart

Goodbye England's rose
From the country lost
Without your soul who missed the wings of your compassion
More than you will ever know

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never fading with the sunset
When the rain set in
And your footsteps will always fall here
Along England's greenest hills
Your candles burned out long before
Your legend ever will

Your footsteps will always fall here
Along England's greenest hills

Your candle burned out long before your legend ever will

This is a great song and very beautiful tribute to a woman who went to god way to soon, just on another point on one of the other posts here Camilla will never be queen even if Charles gets the throne, just because she's married to him wouldn't automatically make her Queen, becoming a queen or a king for that matter is a birthrite not by marriage!!!

Elton John didnt want this song to be played ever again. It was sweet that he did it. It wasnt getting rid of Mariyln Monroe if it was only supposed to be heard one time.

this song sucks, because it was written for monroe, not princess di, and elton knew he could have a smash hit if he took advantage of her death and changed some of the lyrics and got it out quickly, yes it is too bad about di's death. but elton's a oppertunist at best.

This song is so sad, if she hadnt married Charles shed still be alive, it shud mention that!
The lyrics are so beautiful it's lovely.

If Camilla is queen it will make a complete mockery of this girls life.

Oh my gosh these lyrics are so sad! But meaningful. Princess Diana was a great woman. I agree with Sweeney and Vicky. Princess Diana didn't deserve to die. Vicky is right.

This is such a sad song. Written for one of the most beautiful and kind women in the world. She didnt deserve to die.
