Chiquitita, tell me what's wro ng.
You're enchained by your own sor row.
I-i-i- in your eyes there i s no ho pe for tomorrow.
How I hate to see you like t his.
There is no wa y you can deny it.
I-i i I can see that you'r e oh so sad, so quiet.
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.
I-I-I-I hope we can patch it up together.
Chiquitita, you and I kn ow
how the heartaches come and they go
And the scars they're leavin'
You'll be dancin'once ag ain and the p ain will end,
You will have no t ime for grievin'.
Chiquitita, you and I cr y
but the sun is still in the sky
And shinin'above you.
Let me hear you sing once m ore like you did be fore,
Sing a new song, Chiquitita.
Try once more l ike you did b efore, sing a neee w song, Chiquitita.
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
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
