Chiquitita*

[Verse 1]

Chiquitita, tell me what’s wrong

You’re enchained by your own sorrow

In your eyes, there is no hope for tomorrow

How I hate to see you like this

There is no way you can deny it

I can see that you’re oh, so sad, so quiet
[Verse 2]

Chiquitita, tell me the truth

I’m a shoulder you can cry on

Your best friend, I’m the one you must rely on

You were always sure of yourself

Now, I see you’ve broken a feather

(How it hurts to see you cry)

(And how it hurts to see you sad)

I hope we can patch it up together

[Chorus]

Chiquitita, you and I know

How the heartaches come and they go

And the scars they’re leaving

You’ll be dancing once again

And the pain will end

You will have no time for grieving

Chiquitita, you and I cry

But the sun is still in the sky

And shining above you

(Even though you cry)

(The sun is shining in the sky)

Let me hear you sing once more

(So let me hear you sing some more)

Like you did before

(The way you used to do before)

Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Try once more, like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita[Verse 3]

So the walls came tumbling down

And your love’s a blown-out candle

All is gone, and it seems too hard to handle

Chiquitita, tell me the truth

There is no way you can deny it

I see that you’re oh, so sad, so quiet

[Chorus]

Chiquitita, you and I know

How the heartaches come and they go

And the scars they’re leaving

(You and I, we know)

(How all the heartaches come and go)

You’ll be dancing once again

(You’ll be dancing once again)

And the pain will end

(And all the pain you take will end)

You will have no time for grieving

Chiquitita, you and I cry

But the sun is still in the sky

And shining above you

(Even though you cry)

(The sun is shining in the sky)

Let me hear you sing once more

(So let me hear you sing some more)

Like you did before

(The way you used to do before)

Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Try once more, like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita[Outro]

Try once more, like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita
