Don't Cry For Me

May 29, 2009
I was so stubborn
No one could tell me what to do
I chose the hard way
Gave up on the only thing I knew
But I didn't care
As long as I thought I was free

When it's all over,
Don't cry for me.

I loved and hated
I touched the sky then crashed and burned
My mistakes found me
But I turned away and hid the hurt
I just closed my eyes
So I wouldn't have to see

When it's all over,
Don't cry for me.

I shoved you away
I couldn't let you know my heart
'Cause if you loved me
All my walls would break apart
It's too late now
And this is how it ought to be

When it's all over,
Don't cry for me.

One day you'll see-

Don't cry for me.
