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,

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on

Chiquitita

so quiet

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 hope we can patch it up together

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

Sing a new song, Chiquitita

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

But the sun is still in the sky
and shining above you

Let me hear you sing once more
like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before

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

and shining

above you

Let me hear you sing once more
like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita
