About Another Suitcase in Another Hall

"Another Suitcase in Another Hall" is a song recorded by Scottish singer Barbara Dickson, for the 1976 concept album, Evita, the basis of the musical of the same name. The musical was based on the life of Argentinian leader Eva Perón. Written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber, the song is presented during a sequence where Eva throws out her husband's mistress on the streets. The latter sings the track, wondering about her future and coming to the conclusion that she would be fine. Dickson was enlisted by the songwriters to record the track after hearing her previous work. Rice and Webber asked her to record the song using a higher than usual pitch, so that she sounded younger like her character. Featuring instrumentation from guitar, marimba, harp and keyboard, "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" finds Dickson singing in a soprano voice. Critically appreciated, the song was released as a single on 7 February 1977, and reached number 18 on the UK Singles Chart. Dickson has stated that she did not like her recorded version of the track and employed a different arrangement during her future live renditions.

I don't expect my love affairs
To last for long
Never fool myself
That my dreams will come true

Being used to trouble
I'd anticipate it
But all the same I hate it
Wouldn't you

So what happens now
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to

Time and time again
I've said that I don't care
That I'm immune to gloom
That I'm hard through and through

But every time it matters
All my words desert me
So anyone can hurt me
And they do

So what happens now
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to

Call in three months time
And I'll be fine I know
Well maybe not that fine
But I'll survive anyhow

I won't recall the names and places
Of the sad occasions
But that's no consolation
Here and now

So what happens now
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to
(Don't ask anymore)
