don’t cry for me argentina (from evita) lyrics – olivia newton-john

it won’t be easy, you’ll think it’s 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
it’s 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’re not the solutions they promised to be
the answer was here all the time
i love you and hope you love me

don’t cry for me argentina

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 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

/ olivia newton john lyrics
