This 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 will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to nines 
For 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 choose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it too

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 appeared 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
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise, 
Don't keep your distance
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance
