Iâ€™m not a fan of his music, but Elton Johnâ€™s â€śCandle In The Windâ€ť has been embedded in my mind ever since Rocco Baldelli announced his retirement last week. The ballad has long been viewed as John articulating his feelings for the songâ€™s subject, Marilyn Monroe, through the power of song. Still, thereâ€™s one portion of the chorus that I feel best sums up Baldelliâ€™s career â€“ as well as other athletes who call it a career sooner than expected:
Your candle burned out long before â€”
Your legend ever did.
