Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork and they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill and they made you change your name.
And it seems to me you 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 never did.
Loneliness was tough, the toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar and pain was the price you paid
Even when you died oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say was that Marilyn was found in the nude.
Goodbye Norma Jean, From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something as more than sexual, more than just our Marilyn Monroe…
