# CXXIX - Não chores por mim...


(María Eva Duarte de Perón)

Foi num 26 de Julho (de 1952), com a idade de Cristo, que faleceu Evita Perón, vítima de cancro uterino.

Para a história ficou a dúvida, Santa ou Demoníaca?

Para mim, ficará sempre associada ao espantoso tema de Andrew Lloyd Webber (música) e Tim Rice (letra) para o musical de 1978, Evita :

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Don't cry for me Argentina

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

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 seems 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 /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

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

Don't cry for me Argentina

Uma das versões mais conhecidas deste tema, e de que eu gosto bastante, é a da Madonna, no filme Evita.
Deixo um excerto da referida interpretação:
