Don't Cry for Me Argentina - Elvis Costello

it won't be easy
you'll think it strange
when I try to explain how I fee
that I still need your love after all that I've done
you won't believe me
all you will see is the girl you once knew
although she is 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 that hill
looking for the window, staying out of the sun
so I chose freedom
running 'round 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 you 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 were 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

have I said too much?
there's nothing more I can think of to say to you
but all you have to do is look at me
to know that every word is true

I kept my promise
don't keep your distance
