Lyrics Print lyrics

Where do we go from here?

This isn't where we intended to be

We had it all, you believed in me

I believed in you

 

Certainties disappear

What do we do for our dream to survive?

How do we keep all our passions alive

As we used to do?

 

Deep in my heart I'm concealing

Things that I'm longing to say

Scared to confess what I'm feeling

Frightened you'll slip away

 

You must love me

You must love me

 

Why are you at my side?

How can I be any use to you now?

Give me a chance and I'll let you see how

Nothing has changed

 

Deep in my heart I'm concealing

Things that I'm longing to say

Scared to confess what I'm feeling

Frightened you'll slip away

 

You must love me

You must love me

 

You must love me

Single

You Must Love Me, the singleTo promote the Evita soundtrack, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice got back together to write a song especially for Madonna. The result was this beautiful ballad in which Eva Peron shows her vulnerable side. This first Evita single, released in the fall of 1996, only reached #18 in the US but still got a Gold certification. It got to #10 in the UK, #2 in Canada and #11 in Australia. The song won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for 'Best Song'.

Video

You Must Love Me, the videoIn between the recordings of the movie, Evita producer Alan Parker shot the video, which shows a very serene Madonna standing in a room with a pianist and a cellist. Notice that Madonna's shown either in close-up either behind the piano, to hide her pregnancy with Lola. The video also uses images of the movie.

 

Tour

You Must Love Me @ Sticky & Sweet Tour "Where do we go from here?" Madonna sings on the Sticky & Sweet Tour. Performing this beautifully vulnerable song for the first time on tour, she treats fans to one of her most sincere live moments ever. While the musicians, complete with the Arkady Gips, gather around her, Madonna accompanies herself on the acoustic guitar. But it's her powerful voice that stands out, echoing throughout the stadium, especially for "scared to confess what i'm feeling!!". The crowd holds its breath, much like the movie characters on the screen during Evita's funeral. For the last sentence, Madonna builds in an extra dramatic silence, before the violinist provides the emotional finale.

At the concerts of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Madonna extended this performance by singing a part of the other big ballad of the musical, Don't Cry For Me Argentina.
