Another tribute to Heath Ledger

I wrote some more words to songs that express my love for Heath. Here they are:

Candle in the Wind
Verse 1
Good bye Heath Ledger
Even though I never knew you at all
You touched many hearts including my own.
You had so much talent
And the courage to kiss another man
Which many others would never do
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
You were all alone when the rain set in.
And I would have like to known you but I never had the chance.
Your candle burned out long before
Your legacy ever will.

Verse 2
Acting was hard on you
So much so that you lost sleep.
Your break-up with Michelle Williams had its toll.
The day you died, the press hounded you
The first thing they said was "Heath found in the nude."
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
You were all alone when the rain set in.
And I would have like to known you but I never had the chance.
Your candle burned out long before
Your legacy ever will.

Verse 3
Good bye Heath Ledger
From the young man in the twenty-third row.
You were a superstar
A true one of a kind.
I loved you Heath
And I always will.
I just wish that you didn't have to go
And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
You were all alone when the rain set in.
And I would have like to known you but I never had the chance.
Your candle burned out long before
Your legacy ever will.

Take A Bow
Verse 1
Take a bow
The night is over
This masquerade is getting older.
Lights are low, the curtains down
There's no one her
(There's no one here, there's no one in the crowd)
Say your lines
In your movies
Heath Ledger, my favorite movie star
(My favorite star)
You were so gifted
You're one lonely star
(You're one lonely star, you knew who you were)
I've always been in love with you
(Always with you)
And you'll never know it's true
(You don't know it's true)
But then you had to die why oh why?
The show is over say good bye.
Say good bye
Say good bye

Verse 2
Make them laugh, it comes so easy
When you get to the part where you're taking my heart.
Flash that great smile
All the world loves a clown.
(Make them laugh, the whole world loves a clown)
Wish you well
But you couldn't stay
You deserve an award for the roles that you played
(That you played)
No more masquerade
You're one lonely star
(You're one lonely star, you knew who you were)
I've always been in love with you
(Always with you)
And you'll never know it's true
(You don't know it's true)
But then you had to die why oh why?
The show is over say good bye.
Say good bye
Say good bye

Bridge
All the world is a stage
(Is a stage)
And everyone has a part
(Has a part)
But how was I to know which way the story'd go?
How was I to know your death would break
(Would break, would break)
Break my heart?
I've always been in love with you
(Always with you)
And you'll never know it's true
(You don't know it's true)
But then you had to die why oh why?
The show is over say good bye.
Say good bye
Say good bye

You'd Only Just Begun (To the tune of We've Only Just Begun)
Verse 1
You only just begun to live
Full of pure talent
An Oscar nod and you were on your way
You'd only just begun

Verse 2
The birth of Matilda made you smile
So much love and joy
It's so sad she'll never know her dad
You'd only just begun

Bridge
Exploring horizions new to you
Learning how to play the roles along the way
You had so many roles ahead of you
You truly lived life from day to day
Day to day

Verse 3
And beneath the rising sun you left
A life tragically cut short
Many fans cried that day.
And yet you'd only just begun
