O'Connor, Sinead - Don't Cry For Me Argentina Lyrics




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 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 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

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

I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance

    different rendition! so good and very emotional!

  34. diego ortiz

    I LOVE miss O'connor... life has worn her down a tad, but her LIFE is her source material. Sorry, haters, but I WOULD BITCH SLAP ANY ANTI-SINEAD. Learn to LOVE, people.

  35. Jasper7182009

    This is certainly an interesting interpretation. It’s too bad Sinead doesn’t have the lower register. Karen Carpenter‘s version is distinctly Karen Carpenter and her lower register singing voice is wonderful, point on. But Karen Carpenter doesn’t seem to have the theatrical emotion that this song deserves. Someone suggested Patti Lupone’s 1980 version which I will certainly check out. But it is a song that can be interpreted many different ways, and we’re lucky that so many female vocalist are doing it and you can find the version that speaks to you. But ultimately, it is an epic Broadway song.

    I guess this was back before she had gone totally bat shit crazy...

    Or at least she was only slightly bat shit crazy...

  43. Carol Driehorst

    Just beautiful, really.

  44. jo bond

    I think this dong is hard to get ” right” has to show the venerable child and also the most powerful lady of Argentina. While Sinead I corner lends to fragility she misses the power that Evita had. Also I think you have to act or be in the moment with the song. Just my thoughts

  45. Scott Leslie

    sinea lies

  46. Garrie Taylor

    Stunning then as it is now in 2019

    She really has a kind soul. She stands up for what is right. You may not always like the way she handles issues but she is tackling the wrongs head on.

  55. Silvia Maga

    Fantastica!

  56. Mary Rutkowski

    Genius version... mastery of her soul and voice. Spiritual beyond belief. So young and so out there with her heart! BRAVA!!!!

  77. Ian Hay

    Remember her? before the conversion

  78. John Gilmore

    What a winging song and way out of tune

  79. Stephanie Briggs

    What happened at 3:20? Aborted lyrics and the orchestra hitting notes off-key. Eugh. Other than that, a very lukewarm interpretation. She doesn't have the power to go with the assertive personality of the character she's playing.

    Johann Bogason

    rubbernecking, eh?

  80. Parker930

    Sinead O’Connor was a Beautiful singer, and she does a lovely job here. But it has nothing to do with Evita. She did her own thing which is fine. Eva Peron was far from fragile. This was weak in that sense.

  81. Ace 1

    Great comment. I can remember when I first saw her perform live, many many years ago, I was blown away by how pretty she is. I honestly wasn't ready for it. I'm still blown away, in fact.

  82. Ekaterine Avaliani

    🎶🎶🎶

  83. youlittlerocket

    Why does Argentina cry?

  84. Edwin Meyer

    Stealing the true talent of Karen Carpenter....Theft like this sickens me... NOBODY can do this song with the depth of feeling that Karen Carpenter did 20 years before you picked up your first mike for a few bucks.

  85. kpzcbttp

    Still prefer Elaine Paige.

  86. Sean Whelan

    Amazing. When you appreciate Sinead O'Connor you have become a conasour of Irish vocals because she is truly amazing. Love you Sinead.

  87. Jeannie Gichigi

    Oh thalnk you Sinead, you really touched me with your vulnerability and the delivery, honesty of the way you sing that song! Thank you so much for touching me!

  88. Apolo Adonis

    Argentina is a shit country a poor country .

  89. sleepy misty

    Love when the horn section comes in!💙💙💙💙

  90. Nouvelle Terre

    Amazing this is only 16 years ago

    Joe Mingoia

    Your pretty amazing yourself,you are beautiful

  91. dinhassan

    After all you had to go thru....loving your mother remains in your mind. Proud of you as the feeling is natural. Keep strong with your faith as your feeling is exactly what your faith is guiding you.

  92. BennyCR2

    Her voice is unique. It's soooo soothing. I love to liste to Sinéad.

  93. jongpulmoo

    영혼으로 노래하는듯한 목소리와 표정들
    노래의 깊이가 다르네...

  95. Roos Sweli

    Just watched it another two times and someone below summed it up with one word "exquisite". I'm well and truly gobsmacked.

  96. Roos Sweli

    OMG, that was spine-tingling, I've just watched it 5 times. Sinead, you are the absolute best of the best. someone with such a beautiful heart deserves to have the ultimate gift of self acceptance and inner peace. Stay strong. I love you.
