Joan Baez – Don't Cry For Me Argentina lyrics

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
But 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, staring 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.

Don't cry for me Argentina ...

Don't cry for me Argentina ...
