Goodbye Englands Rose

in der Westminster Abbey unter Verwendung eines von Taupin eigens zu diesem Anlass geschriebenen neuen Textes.

Lyrics

Goodbye England's rose. May you ever grow in our hearts. You were the grace that placed itself. Where lifes 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 candles 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. Even though we try. The truth brings us to tears. All our words cannot express. The joy you've 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 candles burned out long before. Your legend ever will.

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

Goodbye England's rose. From the country lost. Without your soul who missed the wings of your compassion. More than you will 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 candles burned out long before. Your legend ever will.

Your footsteps will always fall here. Along England's greenest hills.

Your candle burned out long before your legend ever will.
