Goodbye Norma Jean
Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew wewe at all
wewe had the grace to hold yourself
While those around wewe crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set wewe on the treadmill
And they made wewe change your name

chorus
And it seems to me wewe 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 wewe ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price wewe paid
Even when wewe 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 wewe at all
wewe had the grace to hold yourself
While those around wewe crawled
Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees wewe as something zaidi than sexual
zaidi than just our Marilyn Monroe
Your Candle Burned Out Long Before Your Legend Ever Did
