Evita

I don't recall  how this song came up in class today.  I'm sure it was relevant somehow, other than that I'd been listening to it over and over this morning.  What a gorgeous piece!


Don't Cry For Me Argentina

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 too.

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're not the solutions
They promise to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me.

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.

Have I said to 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.
