Songinfo

"Candle in the Wind 1997 'is een herschreven en opnieuw opgenomen versie van Elton John 's eigen 1973 hit ' Candle in the Wind ", dat werd uitgebracht als een eerbetoon single wijlen Diana, prinses van Wales. Op 31 augustus 1997 is Diana, prinses van Wales, overleden aan de gevolgen van een auto-ongeluk in Parijs. Het nieuws schokte Elton John omdat jij en Diana goede vrienden waren. In 1997 overleed een andere goede vriend van Elton en Diana, modeontwerper Gianni Versace, wiens begrafenis hij met Diana had bijgewoond. Elton raakte na het nieuws van het overlijden van Diana in een diepe depressie en vertaalde zijn verdriet in een eerbetoon aan Diana. Hij nam contact op met zijn songwriting partner Bernie Taupin om de tekst van 1973 te herschrijven.

Songtekst

SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT

There was a time
I was everything and nothing all in one
When you found me
I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

I need to tell you
How you light up every second of the day
But in the moonlight
You just shine like a beacon on the bay

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
The way you look tonight

With a smile
You pull the deepest secrets from my heart
In all honesty
I'm speechless and I don't know where to start


CANDLE IN THE WIND 1997

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 candle's 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
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
