Madonna: Don't Cry For Me Argentina

DON'T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA
/Madonna/

(Eva, Eva, Eva)

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

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 cry for me Argentina
The truth is I shall not leave you
Though it'll make it harder
For you to see me
I'm Argentina
And always will be

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 cry for me Argentina
The truth is I shall not leave you
Though it'll make it harder
For you to see me
I'm Argentina, I'm Argentina

Don't cry for me
