Don't Cry For Me Argentina - Madonna

  • Don't Cry For Me Argentina - Madonna
    Music: Andrew Lloyd Webber
    Lyrics: Tim Rice
    The song was written in 1976 in memory of Evita Perón, the second wife of Argentine President Juan Perón.
    Footage in the video is from the film: «Eva Perón» by Juan Carlos Desanzo, starring Esther Goris and Victor Laplace.
    The song was initially performed by Julie Covington and its name came from an inscription on the plaque of Evita Peron's grave at Recoleta cemetery in Buenos Aires.
    Madonna sang the same song in 1996, in the musical drama: Evita, directed by Alan Parker and written by Parker and Oliver Stone. The film starred Madonna as Evita Perón, Antonio Banderas as Ché and Jonathan Pryce as Juan Perón.
    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 are 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.
