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, 'long England's hills
Your candle's burnt out long before your legend ever will.

Loveliness we've lost
These empty days without your smile
This torch will 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'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, 'long England's hills
Your candle's burnt out 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,
We miss 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 hills
Your candle's burnt out long before your legend ever will.

And your footsteps will always fall here, along England's hills
Your candle's burnt out long before your legend ever will.
