Lea Salonga – Chiquitita lyrics

(b. Andersson/b. Ulvaeus)

Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes, there is no hope for tomorrow

How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh, so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you're broken and fed up
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go
And the scars, they're leavin'
You'll be dancin' once again
And the pain will end
[Chiquitita lyrics on]You will have no time for grievin'
Chiquitita, you and I cried
But the sun is still in the sky
And shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more
Like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita
Try once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita

So the walls came tumblin' down
And your love's turned lonely and dreadful
All is gone and it seems too hard forever

Chiquitita tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
All I see that you're, oh so sad, so quiet

(repeat refrain)

Try once more, like you did before
Sing a new song, chiquitita
