While those around you crawled

They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on a treadmill
And they made you change your name

And it seems to me, you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

The 4th Line was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Habs Fans created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid

Even when you were scratched
Oh, the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Begin was found in the nude

And it seems to me, you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Steve Begin
Though I never knew you at all
Goodbye Steve Begin
From the young man in the twenty-second row
Who sees you as something more than a grinder
More than just a depth player

And it seems to me, you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did
