Inspired by Argentinian leader Eva PerĂ³n this song was written initially as the spirit of the dead Eva exhorting the people of Argentina not to mourn her, and finally during Eva's speech from the balcony of Casa Rosada.

Lyrics

It won't be easy
You'll think it's strange
When I try to explain how I feel
But 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

[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

And as for fortune and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world,
It was all I desired

They're all illusions
They're not the solutions they promised to be
The answers were here all the time
I love you, and hope you love me

Don't Cry For Me Argentina...
