Don’t cry for me

untitled

It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange

When I try to explain how I feel

That I still need your love after all that I’ve done

You won’t believe me

All you will see is a girl you once knew

Although she’s dressed up to the nines

At sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen, I had to change

Couldn’t stay all my life down at heel

Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun

So I chose freedom

Running around, trying everything new

But nothing impressed me at all

I never expected it to

 

Don’t cry for me Argentina

The truth is I never left you

All through my wild days

My mad existence I kept my promise

Don’t keep your distance

 

And as for fortune, and as for fame

I never invited them in

Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired

They are illusions

They are not the solutions they promised to be

The answer was here all the time

I love you and hope you love me

Have I said too much?

There’s nothing more I can think of to say to you.

But all you have to do is look at me to know

That every word is true
