Don't Cry For Me / Performance / Mariana Zamarbide: Eva Perón - Daniela Wick: Live Play-Back / Barcelona, SP

This is a performance I did in Barcelona on 2011, where I was interpreting Eva Peron to the live play back of a singer. The proposal was that the singer was meant to change the musical styles while she was singing, to make it more difficult for me to follow. The song was Don’t Cry For Me Argentina part of the musical Evita by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice – (1978)

DON’T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA (Lyrics)

(Evita)

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

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 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

(Backround Humming chorus)

(chorus)

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

NO LLORES POR MI ARGENTINA

(Evita)

No será fácil, tu crees que es extraño
Cuando trato de explicar como me siento
Que necesito tu amor después de todo lo que he hecho

No me creerás
Todo lo que verás es la chica que una vez conociste
Aunque se vista elegante
Y hecha un lío contigo

Tuve que permitirlo, tuve que cambiar
No me pude quedar toda mi vida en la miseria
Mirando por la ventana, quedándome en la sombra

Entonces elegí la libertad
Corriendo por ahí, probando todo lo nuevo
Pero nada me impresionó en absoluto
Nunca lo esperé tampoco

No llores por mi Argentina
La verdad es que nunca te abandonaré
A través de mis días salvajes
Mi loca existencia
Yo guardé mi promesa
No guardes tu distancia

Y en cuanto a la fortuna y a la fama
Nunca las invité a entrar
Aunque al mundo le parezca que son todo lo que deseé

Son ilusiones
No son las soluciones que prometieron ser
La respuesta estuvo aquí todo el tiempo
Te amo y espero que tu me ames

No llores por mi Argentina

No llores por mi Argentina
La verdad es que nunca te abandonaré
Todo a través de mis días salvajes
Mi loca existencia
Yo guardo mi promesa
No guardes tu distancia

¿He dicho demasiado?
No hay nada mas que pienso que pueda decirte
Pero todo lo que puedes hacer es mirarme para saber
Que cada palabra es verdadera.
