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.
