Don't Cry for Me Argentina Andrew Lloyd Webber
[C]It won't be easy, you'll think it st[F]range
when I try to explain how I [G]feel
that I s[G7]till need your love after [C]all that I've done.
[C]You [Em]won't bel[Am]ieve me, all you will[Am7] see is a[D4] girl[D] you once knew
[D]although she's dressed up to the [G]nines
[D]at sixes and [D7]sevens with yo[G]u. [G7]
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.
[C]Don't cry for me, Argentina
[C]The truth is, I never left you
All through my [G]wild days, my mad e[Am]xistence
I kept my [Em]promise. Don't keep your d[F]istance.
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 . . . .
hums a chorus
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.
[Am]Have I said too much?
[Am]There's nothing more I can think of to [Em]say to you.
[Am]But all you have to do is look at me to know
that every [G]word is t[C]rue.
