Don't Cry for Me, Argentina - The Carpenters

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'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



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



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
