BLUES OF A NATION You lived in our time, you became a holy. You are a total loss - for mankind. You were a story to write - everybody needing. Never could get enough - of your lines. You lived no lonely life - but it could have been better. You have been someone - in the light. Unlike the movie-stars, who all play the fools you led no mystic life - in the sun. In a strange car - in a strange foreign land and with a foreign - man by your side. You could not even - close your eyes all alone. Even those moments - in a snapshot nearby. Now you're an idol for us - a final delight here. Staying in the hearts - on this world. Making the king and queen - regret their role not knowing what to do - the first time. Watching the people's pain - and strange behaviour. All around the world - and inside. We said good bye - in overwhelming respect. Famous people - the last time by your side. Now all they have - are paper and film. There you can live on - and remain in their minds. They never saw - and touched you at all. So you can live on - as if you never died. THIS IS BBC TELEVISION FROM LONDON - DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES, HAS DIED AFTER A CAR CRASH IN PARIS We said good bye - in overwhelming respect. Famous people - the last time by your side. Millions of flowers at the gates of your home, a rock'n'roll man gave a song to mankind. You gave the blues to a whole nation, too, the people need you to fill out their lives. They never saw and touch you at all so you can live on as if you never died.
