Ode to Marilyn
Lyrics
You keep me wondering what
Your life was like
Here in your picture there's a
Sadness is your eyes
And for that smile
You paid a price

Whatever happened to you Marilyn
Was there no light to guide your way
Everybody's starlit girl
In everyone's love song
Was there no one to love you when your world went wrong

The silver screen's now slipped away
From all of our lives
Though your smile still remains in
Our dreams at night
An Icon of a troubled life

Whatever happened to you Marilyn
Was there no light to guide your way
Everybody's starlit girl
In everyone's love song
Who was there to love you when your world went wrong

Whatever happened to you Marilyn
Was there no light to guide your way
Everybody's starlit girl
In everyone's love song
Was there no one to love you when your world went wrong
Who was there to love you when your world went wrong
Well, where was the love when your world went wrong

This is an upbeat country type of song for Marylyn. Interesting lead break.

Some electric rythym that ended up sounding better than my original intention (to do on the acoustic). sad yet upbeat.
Story Behind the Song:
I bought a poster of her for my studio. I found this picture interesting in that she was smiling though she had the saddest eyes.
