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 LL THAT I'VE DONE
YOU WON'T BELIEVE ME
ALL YOU WILL SEE
IS A GIRL YOU ONCE KNEW
ALTHOUGH SHE'S DRESSD 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

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

THERE'S NOTHING MORE THAT I CAN SAY TO YOU
I ONLY KNOW THAT EVERY WORD IS TRUE

COMMENT:
What A Song!
I’ve never heard anything that so captures the issues of ambition and human need.
Very close to home in my karmic journey.
A privilege to sing.
