La canzone di oggi: Candle in the wind, di Elton John


Un'altra donna speciale si spegneva 13 anni fa su quel maledetto ponte dell'Alma a Parigi all'età di 36 anni. Ricordo benissimo il giorno del suo matrimonio con Carlo perché lo guardava mia madre in tv e quello del suo funerale, mi risuona ancora in testa Candle in the wind di Elton John...

                                                   


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

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 our long before
Your legend ever will

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

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

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 you footsteps will always fall here
Along England's greenest hills
Your candle's burned out long before
Your legend ever will
