Don't Cry for Me Argentina” single


(Source: Am I Not Your Girl?)

It won't be easy,
You'll think it's 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 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 my e , Argentina.
The truth is I never left you.
All though 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.
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.
