[Introduction]

這首歌在Billboard蟬聯了14周冠軍,理所當然為1997年的年終冠軍;不只在美國,這首歌因為是紀念辭世的黛安娜王妃,而黛安娜王妃一直擁有高人氣,受舉世注目景仰,在新聞佔據各國頭條之時,這首極其貼切而優美的旋律,自然而然在各國都曝光率極高,佔據了許多國家的音樂排行榜冠軍。

“Candle in the Wind”其實是1973Elton John為了紀念瑪麗蓮夢露而做,時隔20多年,拿來緬懷在不同領域同為巨星的另一位佳人,再適合也不過了。乍聞王妃過世的消息後,Elton John拾起哀痛,聯絡長期歌詞創作夥伴Bernie Taupin,利用一周時間完成了新歌詞創作,以優美平易的辭彙,簡述了王妃的事蹟,寫下了世人對她的滿腔懷念與不捨。

 

[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 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 your footsteps will always fall here

Along England's greenest hills

Your candle's burned out long before

Your legend ever will
