MADONNA - LYRICS

MADONNA - THE BREAKFAST CLUB BAND




LITTLE BOY
Written by Dan Gilroy and Madonna 

He runs through the street
Cause his house's falling down
And his eyes are burning as they touch the ground
The baseball cap won't hide the pain
There's no one here today
He runs through a house
And he looks for food
He feels so bad
But he knows he's good
He lays down on the kitchenfloor
He ain't hungry no more
CHORUS:
Little boy lost
In little boy land
How much does it cost
To understand
Little boy say, oh
Why do you cry
And how much will you pay
To know why...
Sometimes at night he wets his bed
As you stay playing tricks inside his head
He waits so cold
For a longer life
There's no one here tonight
CHORUS:
Little boy lost
In little boy land
How much does it cost
To understand
Little boy say
Why do you cry
And how much will you pay
To know why...


SAFE NEIGHBOHOOD
Written by Dan Gilroy and Madonna 

I live at the top of the hill
No one keeps me here against my will
I don't need no safe neighborhood
I got to feel good my own way, yeah
It's not like I don't have a choice
When you're alone you make your own choice
If you were me you'd be stayin' here too
Well that's somethin' you'll do your own way, yeah
CHORUS:
And then I walk outside and there ain't no one around
And I never see the shit on the ground
And I never want to make a sound
More than I do now
I got away from the talk that's cheap
I care about the company I keep
If being good make it understood
I don't want to stand in your way, yeah
And then I walk outside and there ain't no one around
And I never see the shit on the ground
And I never want to make a sound
More than I do now


SHINE A LIGHT
Written by Dan Gilroy and Madonna 

Hear me I'm knocking at your door
Could it be I'm coming back for more
Could it be I could not stay away
Now all I want to do is say, oh
I got to tell you how I feel
It's getting all so dark out here
The moonlight's shining on my skin
Now open up and let me in, oh
CHORUS:
Shine a light in your window, ah oh
Out here in the shadow
Saw your face in the doorway, ah oh
Turned around and it slipped away...
My body's shaking with the cold
I'm feeling tired, feeling old
I see your fire burning bright
Now please wake up on me tonight, oh
CHORUS:
Shine a light in your window, ah oh
Out here in the shadow
Saw your face in the doorway, ah oh
Turned around and it slipped away...
Hear me I'm knocking at your door
I ain't gonna go away no more
Gonna stay right here at your door
No I ain't gonna go away no more...

ARE YOU READY?

Take a look around at all the people everywhere
So much energy and excitement in the air
And the time is right
To get together with the people you know
So sing out loud and clear
Don't be afraid to let your feelings show

CHORUS:
Are you ready for it?
Rockin' steady for it
Are you ready for it?

Are you ready for it ?
Rockin' steady for it
Are you ready for it?...

You know the time is right
To make the world a better place to be
So don't worry yourself just take a stand
And let yourself be free
Because there's too much sadness
And confusion out here on the street
And we can change the situation
If we just get a majority

CHORUS:
Are you ready for it?
Rockin' steady for it

BELLS RINGING

Bells ringing inside my head
Now I could ignore them but I choose to live instead
So I take on into the sky and the bells ringing
They gonna teach me how to fly

CHORUS::
And I know that I’m allright
'Cos I hear those bells ringing tonight

And I know that I’m allright
'Cos I hear those bells ringing tonight...

While the earth is shaking underneath my feet
Now I could have run and hide but I rather watch and see
How the world changes before my very eyes
And the earth shaking comes as no surprise

CHORUS:

And I know that I’m allright
'Cos I hear those bells ringing tonight

And I know that I’m allright
'Cos I hear those bells ringing tonight...
Oceans roaring miles away from me
Someone teach me how to swim
I’m gonna jump into the sea
Gonna go way down deep
Open up my eyes and see
How the ocean’s roaring
Gonna set me free...
Oceans roaring, earth shaking, bells ringing tonight

Oceans roaring, earth shaking, bells ringing tonight...
While the bells ringing inside my head
Now I could ignore it but I choose to live instead
So I take on into the sky and the bells ringing
they gonna teach me how to fly...
CHORUS:

And I know that I’m allright
'Cos I hear those bells ringing tonight

Up on a shelf?

ON THE GROUND

I live at the top of the hill
No one keeps me against my will
I don't need no save neighbourhood
I got to feel good, my own way
It's not like I don't have a choice
When you're alone, you make it all good
With you and me,you'll be saying it too
cause if something feels good doing your own way

CHORUS:
You gotta walk outside when you're down on the ground
And I never see your shit on the ground
And I never want to make a sound
More than I do now...
I got away from the talk that's cheap
I don't care 'bout the company I keep
It feels good when it all feels good
I don't want to stand in your way
It's not like I don't have a choice
When you're alone, you make it all good
With you and me, you'll be saying it too
cause if something feels good doing your own way
CHORUS:
You gotta walk outside when you're down on the ground
And I never see your shit on the ground
And I never want to make a sound
More than I do now...
 

You gotta walk outside when you're down on the ground
And I never see your shit on the ground
And I never want to make a sound
More than I do now... 



REMEMBERING YOUR TOUCH

Time passes much too slowly
When I'm waiting for you
Thinking of your arms around me
Is all I can do

You don't know what it means to love
You don't know it's worth
So how could you know that this aching inside me
Is so strong that it hurts?

CHORUS:
And I'm wondering where you are
And I'm looking up at the stars
Wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch...
I'm wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch...

You never said goodbye
I woke up and found you were gone
You take what you can from each situation
And then you move on
You'll never change your ways
And I was a fool to believe
So if you have so many admirers
Why did you pick on me? 

CHORUS:
And I'm wondering where you are
And I'm looking up at the stars
Wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch...
I'm wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch...

And I'm wondering where you are
And I'm looking up at the stars
Wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch...
I'm wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch...

I'm wishing that it didn't hurt so much
Remembering your touch..
Uh didn't hurt so much...  



 THE GOTHAM TAPES





GET UP
Written by Madonna and Jon Gordon

Get out of bed
And you look in the mirror
And the haze in your head
Doesn't get any clearer
The boss man says
You're gonna lose your job
You're gonna lose you pay
If you're late, late
And the weather man says
It's gonna be sunny
And it starts to rain
And you don't think it's funny
So you visit your friends
But there's no one home
And you don't have a dime
And you can't even call them on the phone

CHORUS:
So get up
Get up

Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up...
Your stomach so empty
And you need some food
So you distract yourself
But it just dosn't do any good
You think about going home
But it cant be the same
Cause they'll never change
And they don't wanna know
About the sin of you
And the wasting of time
They wanna grab your hair
And pull you in line

CHORUS:
So get up
Get up

Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up...Pick yourself up off the ground
No one can push you around
Don't let it get you down
You get up

Pick yourself up off the ground
No one can push you around
Don't let it get you down
You get up
 

Pick yourself up off the ground
No one can push you around
Don't let it get you down
You get up

Pick yourself up off the ground
No one can push you around
Don't let it get you down
You get up!
 

So get up...up...
Another day goes by
And you look in the mirror
And the haze in your head
Gets a little bit clearer
And you realize
That the silly things
That used to get you down
We're just a test to see
If you could get up

CHORUS:
So get up
Get up

Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up
Get up... Pick yourself off the ground
No one can push you around
You get up...up...

Pick yourself off the ground
No one can push you around
You get up...up...
 

So get up (14 times)
Whats that you say baby?
Get yourself up off the ground
(repeat & fade) 


 
HIGH SOCIETY

Dreaming your whole life away
You never know what's coming you live from day to day
Spend all your time making sure you look just right
Someone asked you a quiestion but you don't even have the time
CHORUS:
Oh oh you're society's boy
You make some little rich girl a toy
My mistake, didn't think that you would be
Another victim of a high society...
All dressed up and nowhere to go
You spend all of your money and you've got nothing to show
You've got so much to offer, oh its just a crying shame
You can't find love with your money, it's not the same oh
CHORUS:
Oh oh you're society's boy
You make some little rich girl a toy
My mistake, didn't think that you'd be
Another victim of a high society...
You're high society
You can't give your love to me
You're high society
You can't give your love to me...
CHORUS:
Oh, oh oh you're society's boy
You make some rich girl a toy
My mistake I didn't think you would be
Another victim of a high society...
You're high society
You can't give your love to me
You're high society
You cant give your love to me
You're high society
You can't give your love to me
You're high society
You cant give your love to me...
You're high society
You're high society
You're high society
You're high society
You're high society
You're high society
You're high society
You're high society...


LOVE FOR TENDER

I like the way you walk
I like the way you talk
Oh come on understand me when I stare
I like the way you wear your hair
I like it when you dance with me
The way you act so free
Oh come on and hold me tight
I like the way your skin smells at night
And when I kiss you I go into the light
And every hour of the day turns into night
And you may say that I'm a pretender
Oh no
I like it when your lips touch mine
And well that special I forget about time
I've got what you want you've got what I need
I like the way you walk the street
But when I kiss you
And every hour of the day turns into night
And you may say that I'm a pretender
Can't help myself
My love is for tender (4x)
So come on

LOVE ON THE RUN

I don't want to talk about it
Even if you scream and shout it
Words are nothing ‘till they're actions
I can't get no satisfaction
CHORUS:
With your love on the run, oh you're just no fun
To have your love on the run, oh you're just no fun...
Tell your tales to someone else or better keep them to yourself
I heard your stories all before
you're always walking out the door
CHORUS:
With your love on the run, oh you're just no fun
To have your love on the run, oh you're just no fun...
So get out the door with your love on the run
Get out the door you're just no fun
Get out the door with your love on the run
You're just no fun on the run...
Hahaha...
You would think I'd had enough of all your games
They are just too much
I should have known when I first met you
I'm trying so hard to forget your love on the run...
Oh you're just no fun
To have your love on the run, oh you're just no fun..
So get out the door with your love on the run
Get out the door you're just no fun
Get out the door with your love on the run
You're just no fun on the run...
I said get out the door with your love on the run
Get out the door you're just no fun
Get out the door with your love on the run
You're just no fun on the run
Your love on the run, on the run you're just no fun
Just no fun on the run on the run you're just no fun...



TAKE ME / I WANT YOU

It feels so nice to say your name
You've captured me I'm not the same
And when you're standing near it makes no sense
I lose all my selfconfidence
And I know about your reputation, but baby I don't care your such a
sweet sensation

CHORUS:
Won't you take me for your lover
I don't want to have another
Won't you take me for your lover
I don't want to have another
I want you

I want you
I want you
I want you...  
You don't know what you've done to me
I'm growing weaker at the knees
I know I took my chance when I tossed the dice
I didn't think it would be this nice
I never fall in love I ‘m much to clever but you stole my heart
And I'm yours to keep forever

CHORUS:
Won't you take me for your lover
I don't want to have another
Won't you take me for your lover
I don't want to have another
I want you

I want you
I want you
I want you...  
Someone like you just won't do, no
I don't want them anyway
I want you

I want you
I want you
I want you...  
CHORUS: 
Won't you take me for your lover
I don't want to have another
Won't you take me for your lover
I don't want to have another
Someone like you just won't do, no
I don't want them anyway
I want you

I want you
I want you
I want you...

BURNING UP
Written by Madonna
DEMO VERSION

Don't put me off
'Cause I'm on fire
And I can't quench my desire
Don't you know that
I'm burning up for your love
You're not convinced that that is enough
I put myself in this position
And I deserve the imposition
But you don't even know I'm alive
And this pounding in my heart
Just won't die
I'm burning up...
CHORUS:
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
For your love...
You're always closing your door
Well that only makes me want you more
And day and night
I cry for your love
And you're still not convinced that that is enough
To justify my wanting you
Now tell me what you want me to do
I'm not blind and I know
That you want to want me but you can't let go
Come on let go...
CHORUS:
Oh, I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
I'm burning up, burning up for your love
For your love...
Do you wanna see me down on my knees
Or bending over backwards now
Would you be pleased
Unlike the others
I'd do anything
I'm not the same
I have no shame
I'm on fire!
I'm burning up...(8 times)
Oh, do you wanna see me down on my knees
Or bending over backwards now
Would you be pleased
Unlike the others
I'd do anything
I'm not the same
I have no shame
I'm on fire...
I'm burning up, burning up for your love...(10 times)
You know you got me burning up baby
You know you got me burning up baby
Burning up for your love...
Burning up for your love...

CRIMES OF PASSION
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

CHORUS:
Crimes of passion
Give me such a sweet reaction
Ohh crimes of passion
Give me so much satisfaction...
Don't play dumb with me
I know you know the score I wait impatiently
Tonight I'm yours
Show you what it's like to have your cake and eat it too
I think you'll like what I'm gonna do

CHORUS:
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me such a sweet reaction
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me so much satisfaction...
I'm not the type of girl
Who likes to settle down
Some people say
That I just want to fool around
Once I get a taste I want more
I'm like a baby in a candy store

CHORUS:
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me such a sweet reaction
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me so much satisfaction...
There's no reason to feel guilty
It's too late now
What's done is done
If you can keep it a secret, darlin
We can have some fun...
I always want the things
That I can't get
I don't believe
In rules that you can fret
Even when you say
You've got someone at home
Tell her tonight
That she's on her own...
There's no reason to feel guilty
It's too late now
What's done is done
If you can keep it a secret darlin
We can have some fun

CHORUS:
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me such a sweet reaction
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me so much satisfaction
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me such a sweet reaction 

Ohh, crimes of passion 
Give me so much satisfaction
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me such a sweet reaction
Ohh, crimes of passion
Give me so much satisfaction...




DON'T YOU KNOW
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

CHORUS:
You
You make my life much brighter, baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find...
You came along when I was losing my way
You touched my heart and now I'm ready to say
That all your sweetness drives the clouds from the skies
And I look forward for the look in your eyes
How could I ask for more
You're what I'm lookin' for

CHORUS:
Oh You
You make my life much brighter baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find...
Sometimes I feel I have to get away
I change my mind when I look in your eyes
And when those clouds come if you darken my day
You'll know it's I who'll be saying goodbye
How could I ask for more
You're what I'm lookin' for

CHORUS:
Oh You
You make my life much brighter baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find...
Don't you know 
You make my life much brighter baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find...
CHORUS:

Oh You
You make my life much brighter baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find
Don't you know
You
You make my life much brighter baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find
Don't you know
You
You make my life much brighter baby
You're always on my mind
Don't you know
You
You make my load much lighter baby
True love is hard to find...

LAUGH TO KEEP FOR CRYING
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

I can't lock my door
Oh, I don't have no privacy
The only thing that's mine
Is what's inside of me
When I've had enough
Ohh a little voice inside
It says you've got to be tough
You've got to take it in stride
Sometimes I am foolish
I let it get the best of me
At least I know that my mistakes
Are my responsibility

CHORUS:
And I just have to laugh
To keep from crying
I just have to laugh
To keep from crying...
I don't have a dime
Oh, to buy those pretty things
But I hear all the evidence
You know it all sounds the same
But I'm still waiting
I've got my hands open wide
You know my dream isn't fading
I keep it hidden inside

CHORUS:
Oh I just have to laugh
To keep from crying
I just have to laugh
To keep from crying
I just have to laugh
To keep from crying
I keep on trying...
My friends don't understand
Oh, they think I've lost my mind
And I'm choking back the tears
I've got to swallow my pride

CHORUS:
I just have to laugh
To keep from crying
I just have to laugh
To keep from crying
I just have to laugh, ah
La, ah
Lo, oh
La, ah...  


 

STAY 
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

Do you still feel the same way that you did before?
Did you come to bring me sorrow?
Like all those wasted days
Let's not think about tomorrow
You can stay...
Am I just dreaming or did you say you have to go?
If you can't stay forever, I don't wanna know
There's no need to talk about it
The way things used to be
I'm not living here without you...
CHORUS:
Won't you stay, stay darlin'
You could stay, stay darlin'
Won't you stay, stay darlin'
You could stay, stay darlin'...

BORDERLINE
Written by Reggie Lucas

Something in the way you love me won't let me be
I don't want to be your prisoner
So baby won't you set me free
Stop playing with my heart
Finish what you start
When you make my love come down
If you want me let me know
Baby let it show
Honey don't you fool around
Just try to understand
I've given all I can
'Cause you got the best of me
CHORUS:
Borderline
Feels like I'm going to lose my mind
You just keep on pushing my love
Over the borderline
Borderline
Feels like I'm going to lose my mind
You just keep on pushing my love
Over the borderline...
Keep on pushing me baby
Don't you know you drive me crazy
You just keep on pushing my love
Over the borderline...
Something in your eyes is makin' such a fool of me
When you hold me in your arms you love me til I just can't see
But then you let me down
When I look around
Baby you just can't be found
Stop driving me away
I just wanna stay
There's something I just got to say
Just try to understand
I've given all I can
'Cause you got the best of me...
CHORUS:

Feels like I'm going to lose my mind
You just keep on pushing my love

Look what your love has done to me
Come on baby set me free
You just keep on pushing my love
Over the borderline...
You cause me so much pain
I think I'm going insane
What does it take to make you see
You just keep on pushing my love
Over the borderline...
Keep pushing me, keep pushing me
Keep pushing my love
(You just keep on pushing my love)
Common baby
(Over the borderline)
Common darling

Don't you know that
I'm burning up for your love

I KNOW IT
Written by Madonna

I don't know why I thought that you could make me happy

I don't know why I thought that we were going somewhere
But you grabbed your coat and you were out the door
And now I know you don't care
CHORUS:
I know you're gonna take your love and run
I know you think I'm the foolish one
I know you're gonna turn around and say
Goodbye...
I used to think you were my pretty angel comin' down
Well now you've just proven me wrong, yeah
What about the letters we have written
All the things we've said and done
I'll just stand here while you count the battles
You have won
CHORUS:
I know you're gonna take your love and run
I know you think I'm the foolish one

MADONNA - LIKE A VIRGIN ALBUM (1984)




MATERIAL GIRL
Written by Peter Brown and Robert Rans

Some boys kiss me
Some boys hug me
I think they're ok
If they don't give me proper credit
I just walk away
They can beg and they can plead
But they can't see the light (that's right)
'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right...
CHORUS:
'Cause we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl...
Some boys romance
Some boys slow dance
That's all right with me
If they can't raise my interest then I
Have to let them be
Some boys try and some boys lie but
I don't let them play (no way)
Only boys who save their pennies
Make my rainy day...
CHORUS:
'Cause we're living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl...
Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world...
Boys may come and boys may go
And that's all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they're after me
CHORUS:
'Cause everybody's living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
A material...a material...a material...a material world...
Living in a material world (material)

ANGEL
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

Why am I standing on a cloud
Everytime you're around
And my sadness disappears
Everytime you are near
You must be an angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize
CHORUS:
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes...
Walking down a crowded avenue
Other faces seem like nothing next to you
And I can't hear the traffic rushing by
Just the pounding of my heart and that's why
You must be an angel
I can see it in your eyes
Full of wonder and surprise
And just now I realize
CHORUS:
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes...
You're an angel
You're an angel, baby
You're an angel
You must be an angel...
Now I believe that dreams come true
'Cuz you came when I wished for you
This just can't be coincidence
The only way that this makes sense is that
CHORUS:
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
Oooh you're an angel
In disguise
I can see it in your eyes
You're an angel
You're an angel, baby
You're an angel
You must be an angel, baby
Clouds just disappear...



LIKE A VIRGIN
Written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly

I made it through the wilderness
Somehow I made it through
Didn't know how lost I was
Until I found you
I was beat
Incomplete
I'd been had
I was sad and blue
But you made me feel
Yeah you made me feel
Shiny and new
CHORUS:
Hey, like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
When your heart beats
Next to mine...
Gonna give you all my love boy
My fear is fading fast
Been saving it all for you
'Cause only love can last
You're so fine
And you're mine
Make me strong
Yeah you make me bold
Oh your love thawed out
Yeah your love thawed out
What was scared and cold
CHORUS:
Like a virgin
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
With your heartbeat
Next to mine...
Woah, woah, oh, woah...
You're so fine
And you're mine
I'll be yours
'Til the end of time
'Cause you made me feel
Yeah you made me feel
I've nothing to hide
CHORUS:
Like a virgin, hey
Touched for the very first time
Like a virgin
With your heartbeat
Next to mine
Like a virgin, oooh
Like a virgin
Feels so good inside...
When you hold me...
And your heart beats...
And you love me...
Oooh....uh, baby
Can't you hear my heart beat
For the very first time...



OVER AND OVER
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

Hurry up
I just can't wait
I gotta do it now I can't be late
I know I'm not afraid I gotta get out the door
If I don't do it now I won't get anymore
You try to criticize my drive
If I lose I don't feel paralyzed
It's not the game, it's how you play
And if I fall I get up again now
CHORUS:
I get up again, over and over
I get up again, over and over
I get up again, over and over
I get up again, over and over...
Got past my first mistake
I'll only give as much as I can take
You're never gonna see me standin' still
I'm never gonna stop 'til I get my fill
It doesn't matter who you are
It's what you do that takes you far
And if at first you don't succeed
Here's some advice that you should heed
CHORUS:
You get up again, over and over
You get up again, over and over
You get up again, over and over
You get up again, over and over...

From the highest mountain...

Hurry up, hurry up
Hurry up I just can't wait

LOVE DON'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE
Written by Miles Gregory

CHORUS:
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore
When you lived inside of me
There was nothing I could conceive
That you wouldn't do for me
Troubles seemed so far away
You changed that right away, baby
CHORUS:
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore
Love don't live here anymore...
Just emptiness and memories
Of what we had before
You went away
Found another place to stay
Another home
CHORUS:
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore...
In the windmills of my eyes
Everyone can see
The loneliness inside me
Why'd ya have to go away
Don't you know I miss you so
And need your love
CHORUS:
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Just a vacancy
Love don't live here anymore
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
Live here anymore
Love don't live here anymore
Don't live here anymore
No no, don't, don't live here anymore...
You abandoned me
Love don't live here anymore
No, it don't live here anymore
Love don't live here anymore
It don't live here anymore...

Shoo bee doo bee doo
Ooh la la
When I look in your eyes
Baby here's what I see
I see so much confusion
And it's killing me
When I look in your eyes
Baby here's what I see
I see so much confusion
And it's killing me
Well I can't take it anymore, baby
Why don't you dry your eyes
Try and realize
Love can open any door
And maybe
If you trust in me
I can make you see
CHORUS:
Shoo bee doo bee doo
Ooh la la, come to me baby
Shoo bee doo bee doo
Ooh la la, don't say maybe
Shoo bee doo bee doo

I can see you've been hurt before
But don't compare them to me
'Cause I can give so much more
You know you're all I see
Well I can make it on my own, baby
But I'd rather share
All the love that's there
I don't want to be alone
And maybe
You will see the light
Baby spend the night

PRETENDER
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

CHORUS:
He's a pretender
He knows just what to say
He's a pretender
Yeah you meet him every day
He's a pretender
Like the fish that got away
He's a pretender
Why'd I fall in love...
It was so strange the way he held my hand
I wanted more than just a one night stand
He had a way of making me believe
That he was mine and that he'd never leave
I know that I should take my friend's advice
'Cause if it happened once you know it happens twice
If there's a chance then I know I've got to try
I'll make him dance with me
I'll make him tell me why
He's a pretender
He's a pretender...
I'm not afraid to fall a hundred times
And I'll believe in all your silly lies
I'd like to think that I could change your mind
Don't say that I am blind
I know all about your kind
CHORUS:
He's a pretender
You meet him every day
He's a pretender
Like the fish that got away
He's a pretender
Why'd I fall in love...
I like the way he moved across the floor
And when he danced with me I know he wanted more
But in the dark things happen much too fast
I should've stopped him then I knew it wouldn't last
I know that I should take my friend's advice
'Cause if it happened once you know it happens twice
If there's a chance then I know I've got to try
I'll make him dance with me
I'll make him tell me why
I'm not afraid to fall a hundred times
And I'll believe in all your silly lies
I'd like to think that I could change your mind
Don't say that I am blind
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied
You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied
You lied, you lied
I know all about your kind
He's a pretender
He's a pretender
He's a pretender
Why'd I fall in love
(He's a pretender)
Yeah he knows just what to say
(He's a pretender)
Yeah you meet him every day
(He's a pretender)
Like the fish that got away
(He's a pretender)
Don't know how he got that way
He's a pretender
He's a pretender
He's a pretender
Like the fish that got away
He's a pretender
Why'd I fall in love...



STAY
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

You
You make my life much brighter
You're always on my mind
You
You make my load much lighter
True love is hard to find...
Sometimes I feel
I have to get away
I change my mind when I look in your eyes
And when those clouds come in
And try to darken our days
I'll always want you to
CHORUS:
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin', you know you gotta
Stay, stay darlin'...
You saw through my lies and deception
Yeah I was losing my way
You
You gave my life some direction
And now I'm ready to say...
I know there's bound
To be some hard times ahead
I'd be a fool to believe
But if you go I'd rather think of dying instead
I never want you to
CHORUS:
Leave, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin', you know you gotta
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay, please stay darlin'...
When you walked out my door
I knew you'd be back for more
Let's leave the past behind
True love is so hard to find...
Don't be afraid...
It's gonna be all right...
'Cause I know that...
I can make you love me
Love me, love, love, love, love me, love me
When you walked out my door
I knew you'd be back for more
Let's leave the past behind
True love is so hard to find
I'll always want you to
CHORUS:
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay, please stay darlin'
And then we can scoop, scoop, scoop, scoodooly be bop yeah
And then we can scoop, scoop, scoop, scoodooly be bop yeah
And then we can scoop, scoop, scoop, scoodooly be bop yeah
And then we can scoop, scoop, scoop, scoodooly be bop yeah
I want you to
CHORUS:
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin'
Stay, stay darlin', you know you gotta
Stay, stay please stay darlin'
You know you've got to stay
I think about you night and day...
You know you've got to stay
I can make you love me
Love me, love me, love me
Love me, love me, love me

PAPA DON'T PREACH
Written by Brian Elliot

Papa I know you're going to be upset
'Cause I was always your little girl
But you should know by now
I'm not a baby
You always taught me right from wrong
I need your help, daddy please be strong

The one you warned me all about
The one you said I could do without
We're in an awful mess
And I don't mean maybe, please...
CHORUS:
Papa don't preach
I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach
I've been losing sleep
But I made up my mind
I'm keeping my baby
I'm gonna keep my baby mmm...
He says that he's going to marry me
We can raise a little family
Maybe we'll be all right
It's a sacrifice
But my friends keep telling me to give it up
Saying I'm too young, I ought to live it up
What I need right now is some good advice, please
CHORUS:
Papa don't preach
I'm in trouble deep
Papa don't preach

OPEN YOUR HEART
Written by Madonna, Gardner Cole and Peter Rafelson

Watch out!
I see you on the street and you walk on by
You make me wanna hang my head down and cry
If you gave me half a chance you'd see
My desire burning inside of me
But you choose to look the other way
I've had to work much harder than this
For something I want
Don't try to resist me
CHORUS:
Open your heart to me, baby
I hold the lock and you hold the key
Open your heart to me, darlin'
I'll give you love if you, you turn the key...
I think that you're afraid to look in my eyes
Oh baby...
You look a little sad boy, I wonder why...mmm
I follow you around but you can't see
You're too wrapped up in yourself to notice
So you choose to look the other way
Well, I've got something to say
Don't try to run
I can keep up with you
Nothing can stop me from trying
You've got to
CHORUS:
Open your heart to me, baby
I hold the lock and you hold the key
Open your heart to me, darlin'
I'll give you love if you, you turn the key...
Open your heart with the key...
One is such a lonely number...
Aah, aah, aah, aah...
Open your heart
I'll make you love me...
It's not that hard
If you just turn the key (watch out)
Don't try to run
I can keep up with you
Nothing can stop me from trying
You've got to
CHORUS:
Open your heart to me, baby
I hold the lock and you hold the key
Open your heart to me, darlin'
I'll give you love if you, you turn the key...

Open your heart
I'll make you love me (Ah, come on baby)
It's not that hard
If you just turn the key (watch out, watch out, watch out)
Open your heart
I'll make you love me (come on baby)
It's not that hard
If you just turn the key (watch out, watch out, watch out)
Open your heart
I'll make you love me (I'm gonna get to you)
It's not that hard
If you just turn the key (Mmm...come on baby, please....)



WHITE HEAT
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

(A copper
How do ya like that boys, a copper
And we went for it, I went for it
Treated him like a kid brother
And I was gonna split fifty-fifty with a copper
They were there waitin' to pin a medal on him
"Come on get up, get your hands up!"
Yeah, that's it, a nice gold medal for the copper
Only maybe he's gonna get it sooner than he thinks!)
CHORUS:

Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall

So don't come hangin' round my door

I don't want to live out your fantasy
Love's not that easy
This time you're gonna
Gonna have to play my way
Come on make my day
CHORUS:
Get up stand tall
Put your back up against the wall

Can you feel the rhythm of my mind
Boy I've got so much to give
But I don't want to waste my time
I can't let my heart put on a show

You've got to let it go
I don't want to live out your fantasy

LIVE TO TELL
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard
To hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall
CHORUS I:
A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned
'Til then
It will burn inside of me...
I know where beauty lives
I've seen it once
I know the warmth she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside
You can't take that from me
CHORUS I:
A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned
'Til then
It will burn inside of me...
CHORUS II:
The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again...
If I ran away
I'd never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear
The beating of my heart
Will it grow cold (will it grow cold?)
The secret that I hide
Will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know
CHORUS I:
A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned
'Til then
It will burn inside of me...
CHORUS II:
The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again...
CHORUS I:
A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned
'Til then
It will burn inside of me...



WHERE'S THE PARTY
Written by Madonna, Steve Bray and Patrick Leonard

Working monday through friday
Takes up all of my time
If I can get to the weekend
Everything will work out just fine
That's when I can go crazy
That's when I can have fun
Time to be with my baby
Time to come undone
CHORUS:
Where's the party, I want to free my soul
Where's the party, I want to lose control
Where's the party, I want to free my soul
Where's the party, I want to lose control...
Couldn't wait to get older
Thought I'd have so much fun
Guess I'm one of the grown-ups
Now I have to get the job done
People give me the business
I'm not living in fear
I'm just living in chaos
Gotta get away from here
CHORUS:
Where's the party, I want to free my soul
Where's the party, I want to lose control
Where's the party, I want to free my soul
Where's the party, I want to lose control
Don't want to grow old too fast
Don't want to let the system get me down
I've got to find a way to make the good times last
And if you'll show me how
I'm ready now
Slow down you move too fast
Gonna make the good times last
Gonna let my hair hang down
I'm ready now
Slow down you move too fast
Gonna make the good times last
Gonna let my hair hang down
I'm ready now
Where's the party...
Where's the party, someone tell me...
Where's the party, come on, come on, come on...
Where's the party...
Don't want to grow old too fast
Don't want to let the system get me down
I've got to find a way to make the good times last
And if you'll show me how
I'm ready now
CHORUS:
Where's the party, I want to free my soul
Where's the party, I want to lose control
Where's the party, I want to free my soul
Where's the party, I want to lose control...
Slow down you move too fast
Gonna make the good times last
Gonna let my hair hang down
I'm ready now
Slow down you move too fast
Gonna make the good times last
Gonna let my hair hang down
I'm ready now
Where's the party...
Where's the party, someone tell me...
Where's the party, come on, come on, come on...
Where's the party...
We can make it all right
We can make you dance
We can make a party last all night
We can make it all right
We can make you dance
We can make a party last all night...



TRUE BLUE
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

Hey!..What?...
Listen...
I've had other guys
I've looked into their eyes
But I never knew love before
'Til you walked through my door
I've had other lips
I-I-I've sailed a thousand ships
But no matter where I go
You're the one for me baby
This I know 'cause it's
CHORUS:
True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you...
I've heard all the lines
I've cried oh so many times
Those tear drops they won't fall again
I'm so excited 'cause you're my best friend
So if you should ever doubt
Wonder what love is all about
Just think back and remember dear
Those words whispered in your ear I said
CHORUS:
True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you
'Cause it's
True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you...
No-o more sadness
I kiss it good-bye
The sun is bursting right out of the sky
I searched the whole world for someone like you
Don't you know, don't you know that it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's true
So if you should ever doubt
Wonder what love is all about
Just think back and remember dear
Those words whispered in your ear I said
No-o more sadness
I kiss it good-bye
The sun is bursting right out of the sky
I searched the whole world for someone like you
Don't you know, don't you know that it's
CHORUS:
True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be
True blue
Baby I love you
I love you
(This time I know it's true love) lala lalalala...
(The one I'm dreaming of) lala lalalala...
(Your heart fits just like a glove)
And I'm gonna be...
True blue, baby I love you
'Cause it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's
True love, oh baby, true love, oh baby
True love, oh baby, true love, it's true

LA ISLA BONITA
Written by Madonna, Patrick Leonard and Bruce Gaitsch

Como puede ser verdad...
Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
Just like I'd never gone, I knew the song
A young girl with eyes like the desert
It all seems like yesterday, not far away
CHORUS:
Tropical the island breeze
All of nature, wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby...
I fell in love with San Pedro
Warm wind carried on the sea, he called to me
Te dijo te amo...
I prayed that the days would last
They went so fast
CHORUS:
Tropical the island breeze
All of nature, wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby...
I want to be where the sun warms the sky
When it's time for siesta you can watch them go by
Beautiful faces, no cares in this world
Where a girl loves a boy
And a boy...loves a girl...
Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
It all seems like yesterday
Not far away
CHORUS:
Tropical the island breeze
All of nature, wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby
Tropical the island breeze
All of nature, wild and free
This is where I long to be
La isla bonita
And when the samba played
The sun would set so high
Ring through my ears and sting my eyes
Your Spanish lullaby...
La la la la la la la...
Te dijo te amo...
La la la la la la la...
El dijo que te ama...
Pa pa pa pa pa pa...

LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Make love not war we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight
But not with guns and knives
We've got to save the lives
Of every boy and girl
That grows up in this world
CHORUS:
There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round
It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round...
They think that love's a lie
But we can teach them how to try
Love means to understand
Reach out for someone's hand
'Cause everything you do
Comes back in time to you
We have to change our fate
Before it gets too late
CHORUS:
There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round
It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round (we've got to take a stand)
Love makes the world go round....
Love makes the world go round (if you don't hear the sound)
Love makes the world go round....
Don't judge a man 'til you've been standin' in his shoes
You know that we're all so quick to look away
'Cause it's the easy thing to do
You know that what I say is true...
La la la la la la la...
Love...
Love makes the world go round...
Love makes the world go round...
Love makes the world go round...
Make love not war we say
It's easy to recite
But it don't mean a damn
Unless we're gonna fight
CHORUS:
There's hunger everywhere
We've got to take a stand
Reach out for someone's hand
Love makes the world go round
It's easy to forget
If you don't hear the sound
Of pain and prejudice
Love makes the world go round (we've got to take a stand)
Love makes the world go round....
Love makes the world go round (if you don't hear the sound)
Love makes the world go round....
La la la la la la la....la la la la la la la la
Eohhh, pa pa pa pa pa, eohhh

WHO'S THAT GIRL
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Who's that girl...
Who's that girl...
When you see her

In a word get closer to the fire
Run faster
Her laughter burns you up inside
You're spinning round and round
You can't get up, you try but you can't

Her heart is on the street
Tu corazón es suyo

You try to get away but you can't

Quién es esa niña, who's that girl
Señorita, mas fina, who's that girl

CAUSING A COMMOTION
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

CHORUS:
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion...
You met your match when you met me
I know that you will disagree it's crazy
But opposites attract you'll see
And I won't let you get away so easy
The love you save may be your own
Can't fight this feeling, aren't you tired of being alone
You won't admit it but you know it's true
It's not a secret how I feel when I stand next to you
CHORUS:
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion...
Someday you'll see my point of view
You can't keep wishing on the stars baby
What works for me can work for you
You've got to make a compromise and maybe
Then we can keep our love alive
And when it falls we won't let it die
It doesn't matter if you win or lose
It's how you play the game so get into the groove
CHORUS:
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion....
Causing a commotion...
Causing a commotion...
Causing a commotion...
Causing a commotion...
I hope you find what you're looking for
Is it mine walk through that door
We're wasting time
Make up your mind
And get into the groove....
Then we can keep our love alive
And when it falls we won't let it die
It doesn't matter if you win or lose
It's how you play the game so get into the groove
I hope you find what you're looking for
Is it mine walk through that door
We're wasting time
Make up your mind
And get into the groove
CHORUS:
I've got the moves baby
You got the motion
If we got together we'd be causing a commotion
I've got the moves baby

THE LOOK OF LOVE
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Should have left you standing right where you stood
Should have let you go
Should have had the sense to know
Like a train you'd come
And I'd lose my place
Now I'm on this trip
I took a fall from grace
CHORUS:
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
From the eyes of pride
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone...
I've had a map laid out
From the day I was born
But the roads are blocked
And the paper is worn
And all the books I've read
And the things I know
Never taught me to laugh
Never taught to let go
CHORUS:
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
From the eyes of pride
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone...
My conscience is clear, I know right from wrong
That's a lie, I know nothing except that you're gone
But there's more to learn from the look in your eyes
That trip round this world, the stars in the sky
Now all the books I've read
And the things I know
Never taught me to live
Never taught me to let go...
CHORUS:
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
From the eyes of pride
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone
Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
From the look of love
Lord knows I've tried
Nowhere to go
No place to run
From the look of love
Now I've come undone
(Nowhere to hide)
(No place to run)
(Nowhere to hide)
(No place to run)
(Nowhere to hide)
(repeat & fade)



CAN'T STOP
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

CHORUS:
Can't stop
Can't stop thinking about you babe
Can't stop
Can't stop screaming and shouting your name
Can't stop
Look out boy 'cause I'm going to the top
Of your list
Can't stop...
I've tried and tried to get next to you
My friends say I am blind
I'll never break through
But I don't give in so easily
This I know
You just wait and see
I know that you're afraid that I might
Come steal your heart
Away in the night
But I can't take
Away what's not mine
You'll see
You'll come to me in time
CHORUS:
Can't stop
Can't stop thinking about you babe
Can't stop
Can't stop screaming and shouting your name
Can't stop
Look out boy 'cause I'm going to the top
Of your list
Can't stop...
I've never gone the distance before
To find if love was worth giving more
I was born to love you, I've got nothing to hide
I know about your secret side
So shut me out, I'll never let go
'Cause I can work a spell on your soul
I play the fool but it won't last for long, oh no
'Cause baby I'm too strong
CHORUS:
Can't stop
Can't stop thinking about you babe
Can't stop
Can't stop screaming and shouting your name
Can't stop
Look out boy 'cause I'm going to the top
Of your list
Can't stop
Can't stop thinking about you babe
Can't stop
Can't stop screaming and shouting your name
Can't stop
Look out boy 'cause I'm going to the top
Of your list
Can't stop...
Don't be afraid to try
Just let me love you for a while
You'll see
What it's all about
Oh baby I can't clear you out...
So shut me out, I'll never let go
'Cause I can work a spell on your soul
I play the fool but it won't last for long, oh no
'Cause baby I'm too strong
Can't stop
Don't be afraid to try
Just let me love you for a while
You'll see
What it's all about
Oh baby I can't clear you out

Can't stop screaming and shouting your name
Can't stop
Look out boy 'cause I'm going to the top
Of your list
Can't stop
Can't stop thinking about you babe
Can't stop
Can't stop screaming and shouting your name
Can't stop
Look out boy 'cause I'm going to the top
Of your list
Can't stop
Just can't help myself
You know I've got to have you and no one else (can't stop)
Just can't help myself
You know I've got to have you and no one else (can't stop)
Just can't help myself
You know I've got to have you and no one else (can't stop)

MADONNA - LIKE A PRAYER ALBUM (1989)




LIKE A PRAYER
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home
CHORUS:
When you call my name
It's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees
I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I'll take you there...
I hear your voice
It's like an angel sighing
I have no choice
I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes
Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky
I close my eyes
Heaven help me
CHORUS:
When you call my name
It's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees
I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I'll take you there...
Like a child
You whisper softly to me
You're in control
Just like a child
Now I'm dancing
It's like a dream
No end and no beginning
You're here with me
It's like a dream
Let the choir sing
CHORUS:
When you call my name
It's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees
I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power

It's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees
I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour
I can feel your power
Just like a prayer
You know I'll take you there...
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

You are a mystery
Just like a dream
You are not what you seem

No choice
Your voice can take me there

Your voice can take me there...

EXPRESS YOURSELF
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

Come on girls
Do you believe in love?
'Cause I got something to say about it
And it goes something like this...
CHORUS:
Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels and maybe
Then you'll know your love is real...
You don't need diamond rings or eighteen karat gold
Fancy cars that go very fast
You know they never last, no no
What you need is a big strong hand to
Lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can't come down
You'll never come down
CHORUS:
Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels and maybe
Then you'll know your love is real...
Long stem roses are the way to your heart but
He needs to start with your head
Satin sheets are very romantic
What happens when you're not in bed
You deserve the best in life
So if the time isn't right then move on
Second best is never enough
You'll do much better baby on your own
(Baby on your own)
CHORUS:
Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels and maybe
Then you'll know your love is real
Express yourself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey hey hey hey...
So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh baby ready or not...
And when you're gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on
But he just won't get it
He'll be back on his knees
To express himself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey hey...
What you need is a big strong hand to
Lift you to your higher ground
Make you feel like a queen on a throne
Make him love you till you can't come down
You'll never come down
And when you're gone he might regret it
Think about the love he once had
Try to carry on
But he just won't get it
He'll be back on his knees
So please
CHORUS:
Don't go for second best baby
Put your love to the test
You know, you know you've got to
Make him express how he feels and maybe
Then you'll know your love is real
Express yourself
You've got to make him
Express himself
Hey hey hey hey
So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh baby ready or not
Express yourself (you got to make him)
So you can respect yourself
Hey hey
So if you want it right now
Make him show you how
Express what he's got
Oh baby ready or not
(repeat & fade)



LOVE SONG
Written by Madonna and Prince

Je suis prête
Vous êtes prêt aussi?
CHORUS:
Are you wasting my time?
Are you just being kind?
Oh no baby my love isn't blind
Are you wasting my time?
Are you just being kind?
Don't give me one of your lines
Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Don't go and throw our love away
God strike me dead if I did you wrong
This is not a love song
Are you just being kind? (no)
Am I losing my mind? (losing your mind)
Oh no baby (yeah)
CHORUS:
Are you wasting my time? (wasting my time)
Are you just being kind?
Oh no baby my love isn't blind
Are you wasting my time? (time, time, time)
Are you just being kind?
Don't go give me one of your lines
Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Don't go and throw our love away
God strike me dead if I did you wrong
This is not a love song
Ooh are you just being kind?
Am I losing my mind?...Mmm, yeah...
Don't (wait)
Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
And those who run
Seem to have all the fun
But am I wasting my time? (she's so fine)
Are you just being kind? (no)
Come try to tell me what your enemies taught you
Show them never how I didn't do you wrong
That this is not a love song
Are you just being kind? (no)
Am I losing my mind? (losing your mind)
Oh no baby (oh yeah)
CHORUS:
Are you wasting my time? (wasting my time)
Are you just being kind?
Oh no baby my love isn't blind
Are you wasting my time? (time time time)
Are you just being kind?
Don't go give me one of your lines
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
That's how I feel
Don't fog my mind (don't fog)
Mean what you say or baby I am gone
This is not a love song
Ooh are you just being kind? (embrasse-moi) (what)
Am I losing my mind? (pour la dernière fois)...Mmm, yeah...
Love song, love song
Don't try to tell me what your enemies taught you
I'm gone but I just want you to know (love song)
That this is not a love song that I want to sing...



TILL DEATH DO US PART
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

CHORUS:
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't
'Cause you don't love me no more...
You need so much but not from me
Turn your back in my hour of need
Something's wrong but you pretend you don't see
I think I interrupt your life
When you laugh it cuts me just like a knife
I'm not your friend, I'm just your little wife
CHORUS:
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't, if you don't
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't
'Cause you don't love me no more...
They never laugh
Not like before
She takes the keys
He breaks the door
She cannot stay
Here anymore
He's not in love with her anymore...
The bruises they will fade away
You hit so hard with the things you say
I will not stay to watch your hate as it grows
You're not in love with someone else
You don't even love yourself
Still I wish you'd ask me not to go...
CHORUS:
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't, if you don't
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't
'Cause you don't love me no more...
He takes a drink
She goes inside
He starts to scream
The vases fly
He wishes that
She wouldn't cry
He's not in love with her anymore
He makes demands
She draws the line
He starts the fight
She starts the lie
But what is truth
When something dies
He's not in love with her anymore...
You're not in love with someone else
You don't even love yourself
Still I wish you'd ask me not to go
CHORUS:
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't, if you don't
Our luck is running out of time
You're not in love with me anymore
I wish that it would change but it won't
'Cause you don't love me no more...
They never laugh
Not like before
She takes the keys
He breaks the door
She cannot stay
Here anymore
He's not in love with her anymore
He takes a drink
She goes inside
He starts to scream
The vases fly
He wishes that
She wouldn't cry
He's not in love with her anymore
He makes demands
She draws the line
He starts the fight
She starts the lie
But what is truth
When something dies
He's not in love with her anymore
She's had enough...
She says the end...
But she'll come back...
She knows it then...
A chance to start it all again....
Till death do us part...



PROMISE TO TRY
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Little girl
Don't you forget her face
Laughing away your tears
When she was the one who felt all the pain
Little girl
Never forget her eyes
Keep them alive inside
I promise to try
It's not the same
Keep your head held high
Ride like the wind
Never look behind
Life isn't fair
That's what you said
So I try not to care
Little girl
Don't run away so fast
I think you forgot to kiss
Kiss her goodbye
Will she see me cry when I stumble and fall
Does she hear my voice in the night when I call
Wipe away all your tears, it's gonna be all right
I fought to be so strong
I guess you knew
I was afraid
You'd go away too
Little girl
You've got to forget the past
And learn to forgive me
I promise to try
But it feels like a lie
Don't let memory play games with your mind
She's a faded smile frozen in time
I'm still hanging on
But I'm doing it wrong
Can't kiss her goodbye
But I promise to try



CHERISH
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Cherish, cherish...
So tired of broken hearts and losing at this game
Before I start this dance
I take a chance in telling you
I want more than just romance
You are my destiny
I can't let go
Baby can't you see
Cupid please take your aim at me...
CHORUS:
Cherish the thought
Of always having you here by my side
Oh baby I cherish the joy
You keep bringing it into my life
I'm always singing it
Cherish your strength
You got the power to make me feel good
And baby I perish the thought
Of ever leaving
I never would...
I was never satisfied with casual encounters
I can't hide my need for two hearts that bleed
With burning love
That's the way it's got to be
Romeo and Juliet they never felt this way I bet
So don't underestimate my point of view
CHORUS:
Cherish the thought
Of always having you here by my side
Oh baby I cherish the joy
You keep bringing it into my life
I'm always singing it
Cherish your strength
You got the power to make me feel good
And baby I perish the thought
Of ever leaving
I never would...
(Who...You!)
Can't get away, I won't let you
(Who...You!)
I could never forget to
Cherish is the word I use to remind me of
Your love...
(You're givin' it
You're givin' it to me boy
Keep giving me all-all-all your joy
Give me faith
I will always cherish you)
Romeo and Juliet they never felt this way I bet
So don't underestimate my point of view
(Who...You!)
Can't get away, I won't let you
(Who...You!)
I could never forget to
Cherish is the word I use to remind me of
Your love
CHORUS:
Cherish the thought
Of always having you here by my side
Oh baby I cherish the joy
You keep bringing it into my life
I'm always singing it
Cherish your strength
You got the power to make me feel good
And baby I perish the thought
Of ever leaving
I never would...
Cherish
Give me faith
Give me joy, my boy
I will always cherish you
Give me faith
Give me joy, my boy
I will always cherish you
Cherish your strength
(You're givin' it, you're givin' it to me boy)
Can't get away, I won't let you
(Keep giving me all your joy)
Perish the thought
(You're givin' it, you're givin' it to me boy)
I could never forget to....
(Keep giving me all your joy)
Cherish the thought
(Give me faith, give me joy, my boy I will always cherish you)
(Can't get away, can't get away)
Cherish the joy
(Give me faith, give me joy, my boy I will always cherish you)
(Can't get away, can't get away)
Cherish the strength
(You're givin' it to me boy, keep giving me all your joy)
(Can't get away, can't get away)
Perish the thought
(You're givin' it to me boy, keep giving me all your joy)
(Can't get away, can't get away)
Cherish the thought
(Give me faith, give me joy, my boy I will always cherish you)
(Can't get away, can't get away)
Cherish the joy
(Give me faith, give me joy, my boy I will always cherish you)

DEAR JESSIE
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Baby face don't grow so fast
Make a special wish that will always last
Rub this magic lantern
He will make your dreams come true
For you
Ride the rainbow to the other side
Catch a falling star and then take a ride
To the river that sings and the clover that
Brings good luck to you
It's all true
CHORUS:
Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day
Dear Jessie see the roses
Raining on the love parade...
If the land of make believe
Is inside your heart it will never leave
There's a golden gate where the fairies all wait
And dancing moons
For you
Close your eyes and you'll be there
Where the mermaids sing as they comb their hair
Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
Where dreams are made
Your love parade...
CHORUS:
Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day
Dear Jessie see the roses
Raining on the love parade...
Your dreams are made inside your love parade...
It's a holiday inside your love parade...
On the merry-go-round of
Lovers and white turtle doves
Leprechauns floating by
This is your lullaby
Sugarplum fingertips
Kissing your honey lips
Close your eyes sleepy head
Is it time for your bed
Never forget what I said
Hang on you're already there
Close your eyes and you'll be there
Where the mermaids sing as they comb their hair
Like a fountain of gold you can never grow old
Where dreams are made
Your love parade
CHORUS:
Pink elephants and lemonade
Dear Jessie hear the laughter
Running through the love parade
Candy kisses and a sunny day
Dear Jessie see the roses
Raining on the love parade
Your dreams are made inside your love parade...
It's a holiday inside your love parade...



OH FATHER
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

It's funny that way
You can get used
To the tears and the pain
What a child will believe
You never loved me
CHORUS:
You can't hurt me now
I got away from you
I never thought I would
You can't make me cry
You once had the power
I never felt so good about myself
Seems like yesterday
I lay down next to your boots and I prayed
For your anger to end
Oh Father I have sinned
CHORUS:
You can't hurt me now
I got away from you
I never thought I would
You can't make me cry
You once had the power
I never felt so good about myself
Oh Father
You never wanted to live that way
You never wanted to hurt me
Why am I running away
Oh Father
You never wanted to live that way
You never wanted to hurt me
Why am I running away...
Maybe someday
When I look back I'll be able to say
You didn't mean to be cruel
Somebody hurt you too
CHORUS:
You can't hurt me now
I got away from you
I never thought I would
You can't make me cry
You once had the power
I never felt so good
You can't hurt me now
I got away from you
I never thought I would
You can't make me cry
You once had the power
I never felt so good about myself...



KEEP IT TOGETHER
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray

Keep, keep it together
Forever keep people together
Keep, keep it together
Forever keep people together
Keep, keep it together
Forever keep people together
Keep, keep it together
Forever keep people together...
I got brothers
I got some sisters too
Stuck in the middle
Tell you what I'm gonna do
Gonna get out of here
I'm gonna leave this place
So I can forget
Every single hungry face
I'm tired of sharing all the hand me downs
To get attention
I must always be the clown
I wanna be different
I wanna be on my own
But Daddy said listen
You will always have a home
CHORUS:
Keep it together in the family
They're a reminder of your history
Brothers and sisters, they hold the key
To your heart and your soul
Don't forget that your family is gold...
I hit the big time
But I still get the blues
Everyone's a stranger
City life can get to you
People can be so cold
Never want to turn your back
Just givin' to get something
Always wanting something back
When I get lonely and I need to be
Loved for who I am not what they want to see
Brothers and sisters
They've always been there for me
We have a connection
Home is where the heart should be
CHORUS:
Keep it together in the family
They're a reminder of your history
Brothers and sisters, they hold the key
To your heart and your soul
Don't forget that your family is gold...
When I look back on all the misery
And all the heartache that they brought to me
I wouldn't change it for another chance
'Cause blood is thicker than any other circumstance...
Keep, keep it together
Forever keep people together
Keep, keep it together
Forever keep people together
When I get lonely and I need to be
Loved for who I am not what they want to see
Brothers and sisters
They've always been there for me
We have a connection
Home is where the heart should be
When I look back on all the misery
And all the heartache that they brought to me
I wouldn't change it for another chance
'Cause blood is thicker than any circumstance
CHORUS:
Keep it together in the family
They're a reminder of your history
Brothers and sisters, they hold the key
To your heart and your soul
Don't forget that your family is gold
Keep, keep it together
Keep people together forever and ever
Keep, keep it together
Keep people together forever and ever
(repeat & fade)



SPANISH EYES
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

I know for sure his heart is here with me
Though I wish him back I know he cannot see
My hands trembling
I know he hears me sing
CHORUS:
I light this candle and watch it throw
Tears on my pillow
And if there is a Christ
He'll come tonight
To pray for Spanish eyes
And if I have nothing left to show
Tears on my pillow
What kind of life is this
If God exists
Then help me pray for Spanish eyes...
He had to fight like all the rest
In the barrio all the streets are paved with fear
I don't understand
At least he was a man
CHORUS:
I light this candle and watch it throw
Tears on my pillow
And if there is a Christ
He'll come tonight
To pray for Spanish eyes
And if I have nothing left to show
Tears on my pillow
What kind of life is this
If God exists
Then help me pray for Spanish eyes...
How many lives will they have to take
How much heartache
How many suns will they have to burn
Spanish eyes
When will they ever learn...
You were not the Maravilla in our minds
We were proud to fight but we cannot win this blind
Stand your guns against the wall
Who's next in line to fall
CHORUS:
I light this candle and watch it throw
Tears on my pillow
And if there is a Christ
He'll come tonight
To pray for Spanish eyes
And if I have nothing left to show
Tears on my pillow
What kind of life is this
If God exists
Then help me pray for Spanish eyes
How many lives will they have to take
How much heartache
How many suns will they have to burn
Spanish eyes
When will they ever learn...



ACT OF CONTRITION
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

For thou art the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory
Forever and ever. Amen.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee,
Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy...
Oh my God, I am heartily sorry
For having offended Thee
And I detest all my sins
Because of Thy just punishment
But most of all
Because I have offended Thee, Oh my God
Who art all good and deserving of all my love
I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace
To confess my sins, to do penance, to amend my life,
And to avoid the temptations of evil
Oh my God
I am heartily sorry
For having offended Thee
And I detest
All my sins
Because of Thy
Just punishment
But most of all
Because my God
I have offended Thee
Who art all good
Like I knew you would
And deserving of all
My love
I reserve
I reserve
I reserve
I reserve
I resolve
I have a reservation
I have a reservation!
What you do you mean it's not in the computer?




MADONNA - I'M BREATHLESS FILM SOUNDTRACK ALBUM (1990)




HE'S A MAN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

All work and no play
Makes Dick a dull dull boy, career gets in the way
Square jaw, ooo, such a handsome face
Why do you have to save the human race?
Life of crime, no it never pays
Clean up the streets and make your secret get-away
All alone, in your room with your radio
No one to hold you, had to let her go
CHORUS:
You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun...
All boss and no brains
Bullies and thugs, they take up all your time in vain
Can't let go, someone cries and you hear the call
Who's gonna catch you, don't good guys ever fall?
CHORUS:
You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun...
All alone, in your room with your radio
No one to hold you, I would never let you go
CHORUS:
You're a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
'Cause I can show you some fun
And I don't mean with a gun, no...
CHORUS:
You are a man with a gun in your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Ah, ah, ah, man with a gun, take it out of your hand
Waging a war between good and evil can be a bore
If you don't take time, it's not nice
So here's my advice
Take your love on the run (on the run)
Oh God, let me be the one (be the one)
Show you some fun
Gimme that gun...



SOONER OR LATER
Written by Stephen Sondheim

Sooner or later you're gonna be mine
Sooner or later you're gonna be fine
Baby, it's time that you face it
I always get my man
Sooner or later you're gonna decide
Sooner or later there's nowhere to hide
Baby, it's time, so why waste it in chatter?
Let's settle the matter
Baby, you're mine on a platter
I always get my man
But if you insist, babe, the challenge delights me
The more you resist, babe, the more it excites me
And no one I've kissed, babe, ever fights me again
If you're on my list, it's just a question of when
When I get a yen, then baby, Amen
I'm counting to ten, and then...
I'm gonna love you like nothing you've known
I'm gonna love you, and you all alone
Sooner is better than later but lover
I'll hover, I'll plan
This time I'm not only getting
I'm holding my man



HANKY PANKY
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Come over here!...
Some girls they like candy, and others, they like to grind
I'll settle for the back of your hand somewhere on my behind
Treat me like I'm a bad girl, even when I'm being good to you
I don't want you to thank me, you can just spank me, mmm
Some guys like to sweet talk, and others, they like to tease
Tie my hands behind my back and, ooo, I'm in ecstasy
Don't slobber me with kisses, I can get that from my sisters
Before I get too cranky, you better...
CHORUS:
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy...
Ooooh...
Please don't call a doctor, 'cause there's nothing wrong with me
I just like things a little rough and you better not disagree
'Cause I don't like a big softie (no) I like someone mean and bossy
Let me speak to you frankly, you better...
CHORUS:
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy...
Ooooh, yeah...
What about? Yeah. That's an interesting...
Ooooh
My bottom hurts just thinking about it
(She wants you to) Treat me like I'm a bad girl
(She needs you to) Even when I'm being good to you
I don't want you to thank me (Don't thank her), you better...
CHORUS:
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky
Like hanky panky (hanky panky)
Nothing like a good spanky (good spanky)
Don't take out your handkerchiefs
I don't wanna cry, I just wanna hanky panky guy
(Hanky panky) Oooh, yeah...
(Good spanky) Get the picture?
(Don't wanna cry, I just wanna)
That's the way I came into this world (hanky panky)
The doctor said, "Lady, she's a beautiful girl&quot (good spanky)
He gave me a spanky and I started to smile (don't wanna cry, I just wanna)
So give it up, honey, 'cause I want it
Yeah...
(Hanky panky, good spanky, don't wanna cry, I just wanna)



I'M GOING BANANAS
Written by Michael Kernan and Andy Paley

Hola! Ese bato loco!...
I'm going bananas
And I feel like my poor little mind is being devoured by piranhas
For I'm going bananas
I'm non compos mentes
And I feel like a tooth being drilled
A nerve being killed by a dentist
For I'm non compos mentes
Who knows?
Could be the tropic heat
Or something that I eat
That makes me gonzo
I do carry on so, for I'm going bananas
Someone book me a room in the hot haciendo with all my mananas
For I'm going bananas
I'm going meshuga
All day long there's a man in my brain incessently playing "Booga wooga"
But I'm going meshuga
There's bats in my belfry
Won't you make sure this straightjacket's tight
Otherwise I might get myself free
Yes, there's bats in my belfry
Who knows?
Could be the wine I drink
Or it's the way I think
That makes me gonzo
Oh, Doctor Alonzo says I'm going bananas
Someone get me a bed in the "Casa de Loco" for all my mananas
For I'm going bananas
Yes, I'm going bananas
Si, I'm going bananas



CRY BABY
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

My guy is really something, he's sensitive and shy
My guy is such a bumpkin, it doesn't take much to make him cry
If you hurt someone helpless, it's like taking away all his toys
He's just a cry baby boy...
My guy is sentimental, he's always feeling blue
He can be so temperamental and I don't know what I should do
If you step on a little bug he cries all over the floor
He's just a cry baby bore...
CHORUS:
I don't want to hurt his feelings
But his outbursts have me really
Boo-hoo-hoo-ing all the time
If I turn out like him, I think I'm gonna cry, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
And I'll tell you something else...
My guy is such a wet noodle, he's always teary-eyed
He acts like a real cock-a-doodle, he can't even tell you why
If you just play him a sappy song, he acts like his doggie just died
He's just a cry baby guy...
No kidding, oh dear...
My guy is such a whiner, he's worse than baddie so
A cockroach seen in the diner, and the tears flow out of the blue
And if I ask him to knock it off, he goes and cries in the can
He's just a cry baby man...
CHORUS:
I don't want to hurt his feelings
But his outbursts have me really
Boo-hoo-hoo-ing all the time
If I turn out like him, I think I'm gonna cry, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
I love a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
Would you knock it off please? Thank you.



SOMETHING TO TEMEMBER
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Seems I've played the game for much too long
I let people buy my love and I
Never got to sing my songs for you
I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love you pay your dues
Say that happiness cannot be measured
And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures
What a joke...
CHORUS:
I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"...
I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose
In the game of love I've paid my dues
Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sun
Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather
What a shame, who's to blame
CHORUS:
I was not your woman, I was not your friend
But you gave me something to remember
No other man said "Love yourself"
Nobody else can
We weren't meant to be
At least not in this lifetime
But you gave me something to remember
I hear you still say "Love yourself"...



BACK IN BUSINESS
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

I'm gonna show you that good guys don't always win
I'm gonna show you the brighter side of living in sin
So when you're six feet under, you won't wonder why
Just 'cause you got a halo don't mean that you can fly
If you thought it was over, you're way off track
You made a blunder, and...
CHORUS:
You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay...
I'm gonna show you good guys always finish last
Speaking of virtue, being nice is a thing of the past
When I want something done, I'll say it with a gun
Just 'cause you're an angel don't mean you're having fun
I just wanted to thank you for what you lack
Hope they don't hang you, 'cause...
CHORUS:
You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay...
A tisket, a tasket, you've lost your yellow basket...
You don't know if you want to hit me or kiss me...
I just wanted to thank you for what you lack
Hope they don't hang you, 'cause...
CHORUS:
You put me back, back in business
This ain't no hit or miss, I'm gonna get my way
'Cause you put me back, back in business
You're my first witness, and I'm here to stay
(He's back in business now)
Give me a hand and I'll take a bow
(He's back in business now)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's coming back in style)
Give me an inch and I'll take a mile
(He's back and why oh why)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's back in business now)
Give me a hand and I'll take a bow
(He's back in business now)
Bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah, bah dah dah
(He's coming back in style)
Give me an inch and I'll take a mile
(He's back and why oh why)
Bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah bwah



MORE
Written by Stephen Sondheim

Once upon a time I had plenty of nothing
Which was fine with me
Because I had rhythm, music, love
The sun, the stars and the moon above
Had the clear blue sky and the deep blue sea
That was when the best things in life were free
Then time went by and now I got plenty of plenty
Which is fine with me
'Cause I still got love, I still got rhythm
But look at what I got to go with 'em...
"Who could ask for anything more?", I hear you query
Who could ask for anything more? Well, let me tell you, dearie...
Got my diamonds, got my yacht, got a guy I adore
I'm so happy with what I got, I want more!...
Count your blessings, one, two, three
I just hate keeping score
Any number is fine with me
As long as it's more...
As long as it's more!
I'm no mathematician, all I know is addition
I find counting a bore
Keep the number mounting, your accountant does the counting
More! More!...
I got rhythm, music too, just as much as before
Got my guy and my sky of blue
Now, however, I own the view
More is better than nothing, true
But nothing's better than more, more, more
Nothing's better than more...
One is fun, why not two?
And if you like two, you might as well have four
And if you like four, why not a few
Why not a slew
More! More!...
If you've got a little, why not a lot?
Add a bit and it'll get to be an oodle
Every jot and tittle adds to the pot
Soon you've got the kit as well as the caboodle
More! More!...
Never say when, never stop at plenty
If it's gonna rain, let it pour
Happy with ten, happier with twenty
If you like a penny, wouldn't you like many much more?
Or does that sound too greedy?
That's not greed, no, indeedy
That's just stocking the store
Gotta fill your cupboard, remember Mother Hubbard
More! More!...
Each possession you possess
Helps your spirits to soar
That's what's soothing about excess
Never settle for something less
Something's better than nothing, yes!
But nothing's better than more, more, more...
(Except all, all, all)
Except...all, all, all...
Except, once you have it all...(have it all)
You may find all else above...(find all else above)
That though things are bliss...
There's one thing you miss...and...that's...
More! More!
More! More! More! More!
More! More! More!



WHAT CAN YOU LOSE
Written by Stephen Sondheim

What can you lose?
Only the blues
Why keep concealing everything you're feeling?
Say it to her, what can you lose?
Maybe it shows
She's had clues, which she chose to ignore
Maybe though she knows
And just wants to go on as before
As a friend, nothing more
So she closes the door
Well, if she does
Those are the dues
Once the words are spoken
Something may be broken
Still, you love her
What can you lose?
But what if she goes?
At least now, you have part of her
What if she had to choose?
Leave it alone
Hold it all in
Better a bone
Don't even begin
With so much to win
There's too much to lose

Let's dance
You can do a little two-step
I'll go anywhere that you step to
'cause I'm following you
My feet might be falling out of rhythm
Don't know what I'm doing with them
But I know I'm following you
Unlikely as it is to me
On the floor with two left feet
Let's boogie woogie till our hearts skip a beat
But who's counting?
Encore, once again around the dance floor
Romance is in the picture too
Now I'm following you
Take it away boys
Unlikely as it is to me
On the floor with two left feet
Let's boogie woogie till our hearts skip a beat
But who's counting?
Encore, once again around the dance floor
Romance is in the picture too
Now I'm following you

Now I'm following you
Would you knock it off please? Thank you!

Look around, everywhere you turn is heartache
It's everywhere that you go (look around)
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know (life that you know)

So use it, that's what it's for (that's what it's for)
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door (open up the door)
It makes no difference if you're black or white

Let your body groove to the music (groove to the music)
Hey, hey, hey

CRAZY FOR YOU
Written by John Bettis and Jon Lind

Swaying room as the music starts
Strangers making the most of the dark
Two by two their bodies become one
I see you through the smokey air
Can't you feel the weight of my stare
You're so close but still a world away
What I'm dying to say, is that
CHORUS:
I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you...
Trying hard to control my heart
I walk over to where you are
Eye to eye we need no words at all
Slowly now we begin to move
Every breath I'm deeper into you
Soon we two are standing still in time
If you read my mind, you'll see
CHORUS:
I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
You'll feel it in my kiss
Because I'm crazy for you
Touch me once and you'll know it's true
I never wanted anyone like this
It's all brand new
You'll feel it in my kiss
I'm crazy for you...
Crazy for you...
Crazy for you...
Crazy for you...
It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you
And you know it's true
I'm crazy, crazy for you
It's all brand new
I'm crazy for you
And you know it's true
Yeah I'm crazy for you
Crazy for you baby
I'm crazy for you
I'm crazy for you baby...



JUSTIFY MY LOVE
Written by Lenny Kravitz and Ingrid Chavez

I wanna kiss you in Paris
I wanna hold your hand in Rome
I wanna run naked in a rainstorm
Make love in a train cross-country
You put this in me
So now what, so now what?
CHORUS:
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love...
I want to know you
Not like that
I don't wanna be your mother
I don't wanna be your sister either
I just wanna be your lover
I wanna be your baby
Kiss me, that's right, kiss me
CHORUS:
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
Yearning, burning
For you to justify my love...
What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna do?
Talk to me
Tell me your dreams
Am I in them?
Tell me your fears
Are you scared?
Tell me your stories
I'm not afraid of who you are
We can fly!...
Poor is the man
Whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that's right, love me
I wanna be your baby
Mmm yeah...
CHORUS:
Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
I'm open and ready
For you to justify my love (my love, my love)
To justify my love
Wanting, to justify (for you to justify my love, my love, my love)
Waiting, to justify my love
Praying, to justify (for you to justify my love)
To justify my love
I'm open, to justify my love (my love, my love)
(Justify my love)



RESCUE ME
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

 I'm talking, I'm talking
I believe in the power of love
I'm singing, I'm singing
I believe that you can rescue me
With you I'm not a little girl
With you I'm not a man
When all the hurt inside of me comes out
You understand
You see that I'm ferocious
You see that I am weak
You see that I am silly
And pretentious and a freak
But I don't feel too strange for you
Don't know exactly what you do
I think when love is pure you try
To understand the reasons why
And I prefer this mystery
It cancels out my misery
And gives me hope that there could be
A person that loves me
CHORUS:
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope...
With you I'm not a fascist
Can't play you like a toy
And when I need to dominate
You're not my little boy
You see that I am hungry
For a life of understanding
And you forgive my angry little heart
When she's demanding
You bring me to my knees
While I'm scratching out the eyes
Of a world I want to conquer
And deliver, and despise
And right while I am kneeling there
I suddenly begin to care
And understand that there could be
A person that loves me
CHORUS:
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (Rescue me)
It's hard to believe
I'm drowning, baby throw out your rope...
Love is understanding
It's hard to believe
Life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Stop me from drowning
Baby I'll do the rest...
CHORUS:
Rescue me (Rescue me)
Your love has given me hope
(Your love has given me hope)
Rescue me (Rescue me)
I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope
(Baby throw out your rope)
Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding
Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding
Love is understanding
It's hard to believe
Life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Rescue me, rescue me...
It's not my business to decide
How good you are for me
How valuable you are
And what the world can see
Only that you try to understand me
And have the courage to love me for me
I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm singing I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm singing, I'm singing, I'm singing
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm talking, I'm talking
(I believe in the power)
I believe in the power of love
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm talking, I'm talking
(I believe in the power)
I believe in the power of love
(I believe that you can rescue me)
I'm singing, I'm singing, I believe
(I believe in the power)
I believe that you can rescue me
(I believe that you can rescue me)
Hey hey, hey hey
(I believe in the power)
R.E.S.C.U.E. me
(I believe you can rescue me)
Only you can rescue me
Hey hey, hey...
(I believe in the power)
(I believe you can rescue me)
(I believe in the power)
(I believe you can rescue me)

Erotica, romance
Erotica, romance...
My name is Dita
I'll be your mistress tonight
I'd like to put you in a trance
If I take you from behind
Push myself into your mind
When you least expect it
Will you try and reject it
If I'm in charge
And I treat you like a child
Will you let yourself go wild
Let my mouth go where it wants to
Give it up, do as I say
Give it up and let me have my way
I'll give you love
I'll hit you like a truck
I'll give you love
I'll teach you how to... aahh
I'd like to put you in a trance
All over...

Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic
Put your hands all over my body
Erotic, erotic...
Once you put your hand in the flame
You can never be the same
There's a certain satisfaction
In a little bit of pain
I can see you understand
I can tell that you're the same
If you're afraid, well rise above
I only hurt the ones I love
Give it up, do as I say
Give it up and let me have my way
I'll give you love
I'll hit you like a truck
I'll give you love
I'll teach you how to... aahh
I'd like to put you in a trance
All over...

Put your hands all over my body...
I don't think you know what pain is...
I don't think you've gone that way...
I could bring you so much pleasure...
I'll come to you when you say...
I know you want me
I'm not gonna hurt you
Just close your eyes
Erotic, erotic

Erotic, erotic...
Put your hands all over my body

FEVER
Written by J. Davenport and E. Cooley

You give me...
You give me fever...
Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that's so hard to bear
Listen to me baby
Hear every word I say
No one can love you the way I do
'Cause they don't know how to love you my way
CHORUS:
You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night...
Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
My eyes light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right
Bless my soul I love you
Take this heart away
Take these arms I'll never use
And just believe in what my lips have to say
CHORUS:
You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night...
Everybody's got the fever
That is something you should know
Fever isn't such a new scene
Fever started long ago
You give me fever
Fever
You give me, you give me fever
You give me... fever...
CHORUS:
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night...
Romeo loved Juliet
Juliet she felt the same
When he put his arms around her
He said Julie baby you're my flame...
He gave her fever
Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
My eyes light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right...
CHORUS:
You give me fever
When you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night
Fever with his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Everybody's got the fever
That is something you should know
Fever isn't such a new scene
Fever started long ago
Fever
Captain Smith and Pocahontas
Had a very mad affair
When her daddy tried to kill him
She said, daddy oh don't you dare...
CHORUS:
He gives me fever
With his kisses
Fever when he holds me tight
Fever, I'm his Misses
Daddy, won't you treat him right
Fever when you kiss them
Fever if you live and learn
Fever, 'til you sizzle
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn
What a lovely way to burn...



BYE BYE BABY
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

This is not a love song
Bye bye baby
I keep on waiting, anticipating
But I can't wait forever
You say you love me
You're thinking of me
But we're never together
CHORUS:
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
This time we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye...
You had your chances
All your romances
And now I just don't want you
I know I love you because I hate you
And now I'd rather haunt you
CHORUS:
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye...
You're so beautiful
What makes you feel exciting?
What wakes you up inside?
Does it make you feel good to see me cry?
I think it does
That's why it's time to say bye bye...
CHORUS:
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye
Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye...
I don't wanna keep the bright flame
Of your ego going
So I'll just stop blowin' in the wind
To love you is a sin
Adiós...
Uh this is not a love song...
I'd like to hurt you...
What excites you?
What turns you on?
What makes you feel good?
Does it make you feel good to see me cry?
I think it does
That's why it's time to say goodbye
Bye bye...
The first time...
And the last time...
You can forget about it baby...
Forget the rules...
Forget the fools...
Forget your fears...
Forget my tears...
You can forget about it baby
Bye bye baby bye bye
You can forget about it baby
'Cause it's the first time...
And the last time...
You'll ever see me cry...
You fucked it up...



DEEPER AND DEEPER
Written by Madonna, Shep Pettibone and Tony Shimkin

Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper...
Sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and sweeter...
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know...
When you know the notes to sing
You can sing most anything
That's what my mama told me
Round and round and round you go
When you find love you'll always know
I let my father mold me
Daddy couldn't be all wrong...
(Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
And my mama made me learn this song...
(You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
That's why...
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
The deeper I go...
All is fair in love she said
Think with your heart, not with your head
That's what my mama told me
All the little things you do
Will end up coming back to you
I let my father mold me...
Daddy couldn't be all wrong...
(Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
And my mama made me learn this song...
(You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
That's why...
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know...
Someone said that romance was dead
And I believed it instead of remembering
What my mama told me
Let my father mold me
Then you tried to hold me
You remind me what they said
This feeling inside...
I can't explain...
But my love is alive...
And I'm never gonna hide it again...
Daddy couldn't be all wrong...
(Not gonna let you slip away, I'm gonna be there)
And my mama made me learn this song...
(You're gonna bring your love to me, I'm gonna get you)
That's why...
CHORUS:
I can't help falling in love
I fall deeper and deeper the further I go
Kisses sent from heaven above
They get sweeter and sweeter the more that I know
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper...
Never gonna hide it again
Sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and sweeter...
Never gonna have to pretend
Deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper...
Never gonna hide it again
Sweeter and sweeter and sweeter and sweeter...
Never gonna have to pretend
Yeah, you got to just let your body move to the music...
Yeah, you got to just let your body go with the flow...
Falling in love, falling in love, falling in love...
I can't keep from falling in love with you...
You know there's nothing better that I'd like to do...



WHERE LIFE BEGINS
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

Warm inside...
I'd like to direct your attention
To something that needs directing to
A lot of people talk about
Dining in and eating out
I guess that's what this song's about
I know this is not a dining room conversation
And you don't have to listen if you don't have the time
But let me remind you
In case you don't already know
Dining out can happen down below
Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Wanting that and needing this
I'd just like to know
If you want to learn
A different kind of kiss
CHORUS:
So won't you
Go down
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is...
Now what could be better than a home cooked meal
How you want to eat it
Depends on how you feel
You can eat all you want
And you don't get fat
Now where else can you go for a meal like that
It's not fair to be selfish and stingy
Every girl should experience eating out
Sometimes when I come home from a hard day at work
I swear it's all I can think about
Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Wanting that and needing this
I'd just like to know
If you want to learn
A different way to kiss...
CHORUS:
So won't you
Go down
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is...
Colonel Sanders says it best
"Finger lickin' good"
Let's put what you've learned to the test
Can you make a fire without using wood
Are you still hungry
Aren't you glad we came
I'm glad you brought your raincoat
I think it's beginning to rain
Everybody's talkin' 'bout
Wanting that and needing this
I'd just like to know
If you want to learn
A different way to kiss
CHORUS:
So won't you
Go down
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is
Where it's warm inside
Go down
Where I cannot hide
Go down
Where all life begins
Go down
That's where my love is
That's where my love is
Come inside
That's where all life begins
It's warm inside.. 



BAD GIRL
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Something's missing and I don't know why
I always feel the need to hide my feelings from you
Is it me or you that I'm afraid of
I tell myself I'll show you what I'm made of
Can't bring myself to let you go
Don't want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you'll always be my baby
In my heart I know we've come apart
And I don't know where to start
What can I do
I don't wanna feel blue...
CHORUS:
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing some kind stranger's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy
I'm not happy...
Something's happened and I can't go back
I fall apart every time you hand your heart out to me
What happens now
I know I don't deserve you
I wonder how
I'm ever gonna hurt you
Can't bring myself to let you go
I don't want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you'll always be my baby
In my heart I know we've come apart
And I don't know where to start
What can I do
I don't wanna feel blue...
CHORUS:
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing some kind stranger's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy
I'm not happy
This way...
I don't want to cause you any pain
But I love you just the same
And you'll always be my baby
In my heart I know we've come apart
And I don't know where to start
What can I do
I don't wanna feel blue...
CHORUS:
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
I'm not happy
This way
Bad girl drunk by six (I'm not happy)
Kissing someone else's lips (this way)
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy when I act this way
Bad girl drunk by six
Kissing someone else's lips
Smoked too many cigarettes today
I'm not happy
I'm not happy
This way
Not happy this way
Kissing some kind stranger's lips...



WAITING
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

Well I know from experience
That if you have to ask for something
More than once or twice
It wasn't yours in the first place
And that's hard to accept
When you love someone
And you're led to believe
In their moment of need
That they want what you want
When they don't
Don't go breaking my heart like you said you would
Baby you're no good
And you hurt me like no other lover ever could
Don't go making me cry
You're gonna say goodbye
Baby tell me why
Tell me why or you're gonna have to justify this
CHORUS:
Waiting for you
Just waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Waiting
For you
I'm waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart...
It was so easy in the beginning
When you didn't feel like running from your feelings
Like you are now
What happened?
What do I remind you of?
Your past
Your dreams
Or some part of yourself that you just can't love?
I wish I could believe you
Or at least have the courage to leave you
Life has taught me that love
With a man like you
Is only gonna make me blue
But I love you anyway
No matter what you do
You don't come around here
Like you did before
When you did adore
Tell me what I did to deserve this
CHORUS:
Waiting for you
Just waiting
Can't you see I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Waiting
For you
Just waiting
Can't you see I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart...
Finally I see a different man
Only love can hurt like this can
Finally I see a different face
Tell me who is going to take my place
Don't go breaking my heart like you said you would
Baby you're no good
And you hurt me like no other lover ever could
Don't go making me cry
You're gonna say goodbye
Baby tell me why
Tell me why 'cause you're gonna have to justify
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
Finally I see a different man
Only love can hurt like this can
Finally I see a different face
Tell me who is going to take my place...
CHORUS:
Waiting for you
I'm waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Waiting
For you
I'm waiting
Can't you see
I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
I knew it from the start that you would desert me
You're gonna break my heart, baby please don't hurt me
CHORUS:
Waiting for you
I'm waiting
Can't you see I'm waiting
For you
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
Break my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
You broke my heart
Uh next time you want pussy... huh
Just look in the mirror baby



THIEF OF HEARTS
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Bitch!
You're a thief of hearts
And now you'll have to pay
How many licks does it take?
You're a thief of hearts
And now you'll have to pay
Which leg do you want me to break?
You'll be sorry
You'll be sorry...
Here she comes
Little Miss thinks she can have what she wants
In a blink of an eye
Here she comes
Acts like she's your best friend
Then you turn your back and she's off with your guy
CHORUS:
She's a thief of hearts
What will happen to the thief of hearts
What she's done is a crime

And gets away with it...
Not this time...

What will happen to the thief of hearts
What she's done is a crime

Here she comes little miss thinks she can have his child
Well anybody can do it
Here she comes little susie ho-maker
Thinks she'll get respect if she screws it
CHORUS:

Stop bitch!
Now sit your ass down!



WORDS
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore...
You think you're so smart
You try to manipulate me
You try to humiliate with your words
You think you're so chic
You write me beautiful letters
You think you're so much better than me
But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break
CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore...
You think you're so shrewd
You try to bring me low
You try to gain control with your words
But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break
CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore...
Friends they tried to warn me about you
He has good manners, he's so romantic
But he'll only make you blue...
How can I explain to them
How could they know...
I'm in love with your words
Your words...
You think you're so sly
I caught you at your game
You will not bring me shame
With your words
But your actions speak louder than words
And they're only words unless they're true
Your actions speak louder than promises
You're inclined to make and inclined to break
CHORUS:
Words
They cut like a knife
Cut into my life
I don't want to hear your words
They always attack
Please take them all back
If they're yours I don't want anymore...
Too much...
Blinding light...
Your touch...
I've grown tired...
Of your words...
Words (words)
A linguistic form that can meaningfully be spoken in isolation (words)
Conversation
Expression
A promise
A sigh
In short
A lie
A message from heaven
A signal from hell
I give you my word
I'll never tell
Language that is used in anger
Personal feelings signaling danger
A brief remark
An utterance
Information
Don't mince words
Don't be evasive
Speak your mind
Be persuasive
A pledge
A commitment
Communication
Words...



RAIN
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

I feel it
It's coming...
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like
Rain...
When your lips are burning mine
And you take the time to tell me how you feel
When you listen to my words
And I know you've heard
I know it's real
Rain is what this thunder brings
For the first time
I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Til I feel your
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like
Rain...
When you looked into my eyes
And you said goodbye
Could you see my tears
When I turned the other way
Did you hear me say
I'd wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky
You promised me when you said goodbye
That you'd return when the storm was done
And now I'll wait for the light
I'll wait for the sun
Till I feel your
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like...
Here comes the sun...
Here comes the sun...
And I say....
Never go away...
Waiting is the hardest thing
It's strange I feel like I've known you before
I tell myself that if I believe in you
And I want to understand you
In the dream of you
More and more and more
With all my heart and all my soul
When I'm with you
That by sheer force of will
I feel like a magical child
I will raise you from the ground
Everything strange
And without a sound you'll appear
Everything wild
And surrender to me
To love...
Rain is what the thunder brings
For the first time
I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your
Rain...
I feel it...
It's coming...
Your love's coming down like...
Rain...
I feel it...
It's coming...
Your love's coming down like...
CHORUS:
Rain
Feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love's coming down like
Rain
Wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love's coming down like
Rain...
I feel it...
It's coming...
Your love's coming down like...
Rain...
I feel it...
It's coming...
Your love's coming down like...
Rain...
Step out on a mountain top and wait for you to call my name
Rain...



WHY'S IT SO HARD
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Why's it so hard to love one another...
Why's it so hard to love...
Why's it so hard to love one another...
Why's it so hard to love...
What do I have to do to be accepted
What do I have to say
What do I have to do to be respected
How do I have to play
What do I have to look like to feel I'm equal
Where do I have to go
What club do I have to join to prove I'm worthy
Who do I have to know
CHORUS:
I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Before it's too late...
What do I have to learn to know what's right for me
What do I have to know
What am I going to do when I feel righteous
Where do I have to go
Who should get to say what I believe in
Who should have the right
What am I going to do with all this anger
Why do I have to fight
CHORUS:
I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Why's it so damn hard...
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, share your love
Bring your love, sing your love
Wear your love, show your sister how
(Why's it so damn hard)
Brothers, sisters...
What do I have to say...
Brothers, sisters...
How do I have to play...
Brothers, sisters...
Who should have the right...
Brothers, sisters
Why do I have to fight
Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister, love your brother
Why's it so hard to love one another
Love your sister, love your brother
Why's it so hard to love one another
Why's it so hard to love
I'm telling you brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to challenge the system
Without living in pain
Brothers, sisters
Why can't we learn to accept that we're different
Why's it so damn hard
Sing your love, share your love
Before it's too late
Sing your love, share your love
Before it's too late
Sing your love, share your love
Before it's too late
Sing your love, share your love
Ahh
Love your brother now, show your sister how
Love your brother now, show your sister
Love your brother now, show your sister how
Love your brother now, show your sister...



IN THIS LIFE
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

Sitting on a park bench
Thinking about a friend of mine
He was only 23
Gone before he had his time
It came without a warning
Didn't want his friends to see him cry
He knew the day was dawning
And I didn't have a chance to say goodbye
CHORUS:
In this life
I loved you most of all
What for?
'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself
What for?
What for?...
Driving down the boulevard
Thinking about a man I knew
He was like a father to me
Nothing in the world that he wouldn't do
Taught me to respect myself
Said that we're all made of flesh and blood
Why should he be treated differently
Shouldn't matter who you choose to love
CHORUS:
In this life
I loved you most of all
What for?
'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself
What for?...
People pass by and I wonder who's next
Who determines, who knows best...
Is there a lesson I'm supposed to learn in this case
Ignorance is not bliss...
In this life
I loved you most of all
What for?
'Cause now you're gone and I have to ask myself
What for?
People pass by and I wonder who's next
Who determines, who knows best...
Is there a lesson I'm supposed to learn in this case
Ignorance is not bliss...
Have you ever watched your best friend die
Have you ever watched a grown man cry
Some say that life isn't fair
I say that people just don't care
They'd rather turn the other way
While we wait for this thing to go away
Why do we have to pretend
Some day I pray it will end
I hope it's in this life
I hope it's in this life time
I hope it's in this life
I hope it's in this life time...



DID YOU DO IT
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

Tell me
We're gonna do it after we finish?
Ya whazzup
We're gonna do it after we finish?
Tick tick tock, Mo is on the jock
I did her in the limo as we went around the block
Sucked the mole on her hip
Licked the lipstick off her lip
She got real excited, yo she started to flip
She says 'Dre baby 'Dre baby oh
I said just relax, yo chill Mo
We made a right turn onto Central Park West
One hand gripped the car, the other on her breast
CHORUS:
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
I let the seat recline and I hit it
Did you do it? I said I did it
Did you do it? I said I did it
Did you do it? I said I did it
But I backed out quick because I thought I split it
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you...
Uh Ho's in the front for the 1990's
Walkin' around showing off their hinies
Wigglin' they're jigglin' they're swingin' and flingin'
9-7-0 Yo Ho, your phone's ringin'
You get a call from your John, you meet him at the mot'
He's chillin' in a pamper and a fur coat
Your head starts spinnin', you drunk too much gin in
Your jaw starts grinnin', and this is the beginnin'
Of a night of an average Ho
It ain't all about working on the streets no more
Here's another episode of dropping off a load
Peter was on the beater, I was about to explode
I couldn't hold back (so whadya do)
I took her to my place (Yo did she sit on your face)
She was so good just like uh, Campbell's soup
I won't try to front so here's the rude scoop
I dipped it and I stripped it and I ripped it like before
I had her screamin', nope no diddily, nope no more
I can't stop once I get started
But yo honey, uh get them legs parted
CHORUS:
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
I let the seat recline and I hit it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
But I backed out quick because I thought I split it
They come with the rough stuff, boy we hit it, split it and forget it
In the same order as ya hear, boy I'm not frontin' (me not front)
Don't ask what, me tell ya the truth, you understand me eye
The iron eye can get busy, you know what I'm saying
Clean up me rifle, clean up me rifle
Clean up me rifle, me elephant rifle
Clean up me rifle, you clean up me rifle
Clean up me rifle, elephant rifle
I flipped her from the top of my head, enough said
I'm the brother with the short short dreads
A couple different styles, a couple different 'fros
Just some that my souls about some girls I know
I gotta hit it hard because I go for the gusto
And I cover up the moans by turnin' up my stereo
CHORUS:
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
Did you do it? Ya know I did it
I let the seat recline and I hit it
Did you do it? Yo, ya know I did it
Did you do it? I said I did it
Did you do it? Yo
I backed out quick because I thought I split it
You didn't do it
He didn't do it
I made her go
Waiting for you, just waiting
(Man she's been waiting)
Waiting for you
(Yeah she can keep on waiting)
Waiting for you, just waiting
(She's been waiting and you have not hit it)
Waiting for you
Waiting for you, just waiting
Waiting for you



SECRET GARDEN
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts

In my secret garden
I'm looking for the perfect flower
Waiting for my finest hour
In my secret garden
I still believe after all
I still believe and I fall
You plant the seed and I'll watch it grow
I wonder when I'll start to show
I wonder if I'll ever know
Where my place is
Where my face is
I know it's in here somewhere
I just wish I knew the color of my hair
I know the answer's hiding somewhere
In my secret garden
CHORUS:
There's a petal that isn't torn
A heart that will not harden
A place that I can be born
In my secret garden
A rose without a thorn
A lover without scorn
If I wait for the rain
To kiss me and undress me
Will I look like a fool
Wet and a mess
Will I still be thirsty
Will I pass the test
And if I look for the rainbow
Will I see it
Or will it pass right by
'Cause I'm not supposed to see
'Cause the blind are never free
Even at my secret garden
There's a chance that I could harden
That's why I'll keep on looking for
CHORUS:
A petal that isn't torn
A heart that will not harden
A place that I can be born
In my secret garden
A rose without a thorn
A lover without scorn
I still believe
I still believe
'Cause after all is said and done
I'm still alive
And the boots have come and trampled on me
And I'm still alive
'Cause the sun has kissed me
And caressed me
And I'm strong
And there's a chance
That I will grow
This I know
So I'm still looking for
CHORUS:
A petal that isn't torn
A heart that will not harden
A place that I can be born
It's in my secret garden
A rose without a thorn
A lover without scorn
Somewhere in fontainebleau
Lies my secret garden...

SECRET
Written by Madonna and Dallas Austin

Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life
You found a way to touch my soul
And I'm never ever ever gonna let it go
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
CHORUS:
Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret...
You gave me back the paradise
That I thought I lost for good
You helped me find the reasons why
It took me by surprise that you understood
You knew all along
What I never wanted to say
Until I learned to love myself
I was never ever lovin' anybody else
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me
CHORUS:
Something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret...
Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your
Secret with me...
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over
Mmm mmm something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm my baby's got a secret for me
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm...

Are you surprised
Are you...

INSIDE OF ME
Written by Madonna, Dave Hall and Nellee Hooper

I can't stop thinking of you
The things we used to do
The secrets we once shared
I'll always find them there
In my memories
But this heartache isn't going anywhere
In the public eye I act like I don't care
When there's no one watching me
I'm crying...
CHORUS:
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me...
I keep a picture of you
Next to my bed at night
And when I wake up scared
I know I'll find you there
Watching over me
When my world seems to crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring me down
I just think of your smiling face and
I'm flying...
CHORUS:
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me...
You'll always be
Inside of my heart...
Inside of me...
When my world seems to crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring me down
I just think of your smiling face and
I'm flying...
CHORUS:
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me
I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Still carries on...
I will always feel you...
You'll always be...
Inside of my heart...
I'll always have you...
Inside of me...
I will always have you...



HUMAN NATURE
Written by Madonna, Dave Hall, S. McKenzie, K. McKenzie and M. Deering

Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
CHORUS:
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
You wouldn't let me say the words I longed to say
You didn't want to see life through my eyes
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You tried to shove me back inside your narrow room
And silence me with bitterness and lies
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
Did I say something wrong?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I stay too long?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't speak my mind
(What was I thinking)...
CHORUS:
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)...
You punished me for telling you my fantasies
I'm breakin' all the rules I didn't make
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
You took my words and made a trap for silly fools
You held me down and tried to make me break
(Express yourself, don't repress yourself)
Did I say something true?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I have a point of view?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about you
(What was I thinking)...
CHORUS:
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Express yourself, don't repress yourself
Did I say something true?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about sex
(I musta been crazy)
Did I have a point of view?
Oops I didn't know I couldn't talk about you
(What was I thinking)
CHORUS:
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Handle it)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(I'm not apologizing)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
(Would it sound better if I were a man?)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(You're the one with the problem)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Why don't you just deal with it)
'Cause I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(Would you like me better if I was?)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
(We all feel the same way)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(I have no regrets)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Just look in the mirror)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(I don't have to justify anything)
It's human nature (It's human nature)
(I'm just like you)
And I'm not sorry (I'm not sorry)
(Why should I be?)
I'm not your bitch
Don't hang your shit on me (It's human nature)
(Deal with it)



FORBIDDEN LOVE
Written by Babyface and Madonna

(Love without guilt, love without doubt) (3 times)
(Rejection, love without doubt)
(Love without guilt, love without doubt) (3 times)
(Rejection, love without doubt)
(Don't go near the fire, don't go in the dark)
(Don't give in to your desire)
('cause he's gonna break your heart)
(Let go, let go)
I don't, don't care if it's not right
To have your arms around me
I want to feel what it's like
Take all of you inside of me
CHORUS:
In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)...
I know that you're no good for me
That's why I feel I must confess
What's wrong is why it feels so right
I want to feel your sweet caress
CHORUS:
In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)
If I only had one wish
Love would always feel like this
Wishin' on the stars above
Forbidden love
If I only had one dream
This would be more than it seems
Forbidden love (Forbidden love)
(Love without guilt, love without doubt) (2x)
Rejection (Love without doubt)
Is the greatest aphrodisiac...
CHORUS:
In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)
In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)
(Love without guilt, love without doubt)
Love should always feel like this
Heaven forgive me
Never forbid me
Love should always feel like this...



LOVE TRIED TO WELCOME ME
Written by Madonna and Dave -Jam- Hall

These are my hands
But what can they give me
These are my eyes
But they cannot see
These are my arms
But they don't know tenderness
And I must confess
That I am usually drawn to sadness
And loneliness has never been a stranger
To me but
CHORUS:
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
These are my lips
But they whisper sorrow...
This is my voice
But it's telling lies
I know how to laugh
But I don't know happiness
And I must confess
Instead of spring it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still
CHORUS:
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
I was covered with dust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me...
And I must confess...
Instead of spring it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still
CHORUS:
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
I was guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Covered with dust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me (love tried to welcome me)
But my soul drew back (guilty of lust and sin)
Covered with dust, covered with sorrow (love tried to take me in)
Covered
Still
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me (love tried to welcome me)
Love tried to welcome me (but my soul drew back)
But my soul drew back (guilty of lust and sin)
Covered with sorrow (love tried to take me in)
Love tried to welcome me...



SANCTUARY
Written by Madonna, Dallas Austin, Anne Preven, Scott Cutler and Herbie Hancock

Surely whoever speaks to me in the right voice...
Him or her I shall follow...
Who needs the sun
When the rain's so full of life
Who needs the sky
It's here in your arms
I want to be buried
You are
My sanctuary
Who needs the sun
When the rain's so full of life
Who needs the sky
When the ground's open wide
It's here in your arms
I want to be buried
You are
My sanctuary
Who needs a smile
When a tear's so full of love
Who needs a home
With the stars up above
It's here in your heart
I want to be carried
You are
My sanctuary
Who needs the light
With the darkness in your eyes
Who needs to sleep
With the stars in the sky
It's here in your soul
I want to be married
You are
My sanctuary
And the earth was void and empty
And darkness was upon the face of the earth
Is all of this pain so necessary
You
Are
My sanctuary
Surely whoever speaks to me in the right voice
Him or her I shall follow
As the water follows the moon
Silently
(Who needs the sun)
With fluid steps
(Who needs the sky)
Around the globe
( Who needs to sleep)
I hear your voice
You are (you are)
My sanctuary
You are (you are)
You are (you are)
My sanctuary...



BEDTIME STORY
Written by Nellee Hooper, Björk and Marius DeVries

Today is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out
Lost their meaning
Don't function anymore
Let's
Let's
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious honey
Today is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out
Lost their meaning
Don't function anymore
Traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling
To the arms of unconsciousness
Traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling
To the arms of unconsciousness
CHORUS:
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Words are useless
Especially sentences
They don't stand for anything
How could they explain how I feel
Traveling, traveling
I'm traveling
Traveling, traveling
Leaving logic and reason
Traveling, traveling
I'm gonna relax
Traveling, traveling
In the arms of unconsciousness
CHORUS:
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
And inside
We're all still wet
Longing and yearning
How can I explain how I feel
CHORUS:
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
In the arms of unconsciousness
And all that you've ever learned
Try to forget
I'll never explain again...



TAKE A BOW
Written by Babyface and Madonna

Take a bow
The night is over
This masquerade is getting older
Light are low
The curtains down
There's no one here
(There's no one here, there's no one in the crowd)
Say your lines
But do you feel them
Do you mean what you say
When there's no one around (no one around)
Watching you, watching me
One lonely star
(One lonely star, you don't know who you are)
CHORUS:
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
Say good-bye
Make them laugh
It comes so easy
When you get to the part
Where you're breaking my heart (breaking my heart)
Hide behind your smile
All the world loves a clown
(Just make 'em smile, the whole world loves a clown)
Wish you well
I cannot stay
You deserve an award
For the role that you played (role that you played)
No more masquerade
You're one lonely star
(One lonely star and you don't know who you are)
CHORUS:
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
Say good-bye
All the world is a stage (world is a stage)
And everyone has their part (has their part)
But how was I to know
Which way the story'd go
How was I to know you'd break
You'd break, you'd break, you'd break
You'd break my heart
CHORUS:
I've always been in love with you (I've always been in love with you)
Guess you've always known
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
I've always been in love with you (always with you)
I guess you've always known it's true (you know it's true)
You took my love for granted, why oh why (why oh why)
The show is over, say good-bye
Say good-bye (bye bye)
Say good-bye
Say good-bye...

I WANT YOU
Written by Leon Ware and T-Boy Ross

CHORUS:
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you
Da da da da da da da...
I'll give you all the love
I want in return
But half a love
Is all I feel
Sweet darling
It's too bad
It's just too sad
You don't want me no more
But I'm gonna change your mind
Some way, somehow...
CHORUS:
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you
Da da da da da da da...
One way love
Is just a fantasy
To share is precious
Pure and fair
Don't play with something
You should cherish for life
Oh baby
Don't you wanna care
Ain't it lonely out there...
CHORUS:
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like I want you
I want you
The right way
I want you
But I want you to want me too
Want me baby
Just like I want you
Da da da da da da da...
I want you
The right way
Want me baby
Don't play with something
You should cherish for life...



I'LL REMEMBER
Written by Patrick Leonard, Madonna and Richard Page

Say good-bye
To not knowing when
The truth in my whole life began
Say good-bye
To not knowing how to cry
You taught me that
CHORUS:
And I'll remember
The strength that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you saved me
I'll remember...
Inside
I was a child
That could not mend a broken wing
Outside
I looked for a way
To teach my heart to sing
CHORUS:
And I'll remember
The love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you changed me
I'll remember...
I learned to let go
Of the illusion that we can possess
I learned to let go
I travel in stillness
And I'll remember...
Happiness...
I'll remember...
(I'll remember)
(I'll remember)
CHORUS:
And I'll remember
The love that you gave me
Now that I'm standing on my own
I'll remember
The way that you changed me
I'll remember (I'll remember)...
No I've never been afraid to cry
Now I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)
No I've never been afraid to cry
And I finally have a reason why
I'll remember (I'll remember)



YOU'LL SEE
Written by Madonna and David Foster

You think that I can't live
Without your love
You'll see
You think I can't go on
Another day
You think I have nothing
Without you by my side
You'll see
Somehow, some way
You think that I can never
Laugh again
You'll see
You think that you destroyed
My faith in love
You think after all you've done
I'll never find my way back home
You'll see
Somehow, someday...
CHORUS:
All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive
All on my own
I don't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see...
You think that you are strong
But you are weak
You'll see
It takes more strength to cry
Admit defeat
I have truth on my side
You only have deceit
You'll see
Somehow, someday...
CHORUS:
All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive
I'll stand on my own
I won't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see...
You'll see...
You'll see...
You'll see, mmm mmm...



THIS USED TO BE MY PLAYGROUND
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone

This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say
Don't look back
Keep your head held high
Don't ask them why
Because
Life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask
This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say
(verses from long & movie version:)
Live and learn
Well the years they flew
And we never knew
We were foolish then
We would never tire
And that little fire
Is still alive in me
It will never go away
Can't say goodbye to yesterday
This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end
And why do they always say
No regrets
But I wish that you
Were here with me
Well then there's hope yet
I can see your face
In our secret place
You're not just a memory
Say goodbye to yesterday
Those are words I'll never say
This used to be my playground
This used to be our pride and joy
This used to be the place we ran to
That no one in the world could dare destroy
(verse from single & movie version:)
This used to be our playground
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
I wish you were standing here with me
(verse from movie version:)
This used to be our playground
This used to be our great escape
This used to be the place we ran to
This used to be our secret hiding place
This used to be our playground
This used to be our childhood dream
This used to be the place we ran to
The best things in life are always free
Wishing you were here with me



ONE MORE CHANCE
Written by Madonna and David Foster

I turned around
Too late
To see the fallen star
I fell asleep
And never saw the sun go down
I took your love for granted
Thought luck was always on my side
I turned around too late
And you were gone
CHORUS:
So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
If you care for me
Be there for me...
I like to play the queen of hearts
And never thought I'd lose
I rolled the dice
But never showed my hand
I planned it out so perfectly
So you'd never leave a girl like me
I was a fool
But now I understand
CHORUS:
So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
If you care for me
Be there for me...
Here is the law of the land
You play with fire and you'll get burned
Here is the lesson I've learned
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone...
CHORUS:
So give me one more chance
Darlin' if you care for me
Let me win your love
'Cause you were always there for me
Gimme one more chance
Tell me that it's not too late
Let me win your love
Darlin' please don't hesitate
If you care for me
Be there for me
Give me
One more chance...

OH WHAT A CIRCUS
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Oh what a circus, oh what a show
Argentina has gone to town
Over the death of an actress called Eva Peron
We've all gone crazy
Mourning all day and mourning all night
Falling over ourselves to get all of the misery right
Oh what an exit, that's how to go
When they're ringing your curtain down
Demand to be buried like Eva Peron
It's quite a sunset
And good for the country in a roundabout way
We've made the front page of all the world's papers today
But who is this Santa Evita
Why all this howling hysterical sorrow
What kind of goddess has lived among us
How will we ever get by without her
She had her moments, she had some style
The best show in town was the crowd
Outside the Casa Rosada crying Eva Peron
But that's all gone now
As soon as the smoke from the funeral clears
We're all going to see and how she did nothing for years
Salve regina mater misericordiae
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra
Salve salve regina
Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
O clemens o pia
You let down your people Evita
You were supposed to have been immortal
That's all they wanted
Not much to ask for
But in the end you could not deliver
Sing you fools but you got it wrong
Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long
Your queen is dead, your king is through
She's not coming back to you
Show business kept us all alive
Since 17 October 1945
But the star has gone the glamour's worn thin
That's a pretty bad state for a state to be in
Instead of government we had a stage
Instead of ideas, a prima donna's rage
Instead of help we were given a crowd
She didn't say much, but she said it loud
Sing you fools, but you got it wrong
Enjoy your prayers because you haven't got long
Your queen is dead, your king is through
She's not coming back to you
Salve regina mater misericordiae
Vita dulcedo et spes nostra
Salve salve regina Peron
Ad te clamamus exules filii Eva
Ad te suspiramus gementes et flentes
O clemens o pia
Don't cry for me Argentina
For I am ordinary, unimportant
And undeserving of such attention
Unless we all are, I think we all are
So share my glory, so share my coffin
So share my glory, so share my coffin
It's our funeral too



ON THIS NIGHT OF A THOUSAND STARS
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Now Eva Peron had every disadvantage
You need if you're gonna succeed
No money, no cash, no father, no bright lights
There was nowhere she'd been at the age of fifteen
As this tango singer found out
Agustin Magaldi who has the distinction of being
the first man to be of use to Eva Duarte
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays for evermore
In the glow of those twinkling lights
We shall love through eternity
On this night in a million nights
Fly away with me
I never dreamed that a kiss could be as sweet as this
Now I know that it can
I used to wander alone without a love of my own
I was a desperate man
But all my grief disappeared and all the sorrow I feared
Wasn't there anymore
On that magical day when you first came my way
Mi Amor
On this night
On this night
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays for evermore



EVA AND MAGALDI / EVA BEWARE OF THE CITY
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

To think that a man as famous as you are
Could love a poor little nothing like me
I wanna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple
She wants to be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple
Just listen to that, they're onto you Magaldi
I'd get out while you can
It's happened at last, I'm starting to get started
I'm moving out with my man
Now Eva don't get carried away
Monotony past, suburbia departed
Who could ever be fond of the back of beyond
Don't hear words that I didn't say
What's that? You'd desert the girl you love?
The girl I love?
What are you talking about?
She really brightened up your out of town engagement
She gave you all she had she wasn't in your contract
You must be quite relieved that no-one's told the papers
So far!
I wanna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple
Would I have done what I did if I hadn't thought
If I hadn't known, we would stay together?
Seems to me there's no point in resisting
She's made up her mind you've no choice
Why don't you be the man who discovered her?
You'll never be remembered for your voice
The city can be paradise for those who have the cash
The class and the connections what you need to make a splash
The likes of you get swept up in the morning with the trash
If you were rich or middle class...
Screw the middle classes! I will never accept them!
My father's other family were middle class and we were kept out of
Sight, hidden from view, at his funeral!
Do all your one night stands give you this trouble?
Eva beware of the city
It's hungry and cold, can't be controlled, it is mad
Those who are fools are swallowed up whole
And those who are not become
What they should not become
Changed in short they go bad
Bad is good for me, I'm bored, so clean and so ignored
I've only been predictable, respectable!
Birds fly out of here so why oh why oh why the hell can't I
I only want variety of society!
I wanna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
She wants to be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
Five years from now I shall come back
And finally say, you have your way, come to town
But you'll look at me with a foreigner's eyes
The magical city, a younger girl's city, a fantasy long since put down
All you've done to me was that a young girl's fantasy?
I played your city games alright didn't I?
I already know what cooks, how the dirty city feels and looks
I tasted it last night didn't I?
I'm gonna be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
She's gonna to be a part of B.A. -Buenos Aires- Big Apple!
Eva beware your ambition
It's hungry and cold, can't be controlled, will run wild
This in a man is danger enough
But you are a woman, not even a woman,
not very much more than a child and whatever you say
I'll not steal you away!



BUENOS AIRES
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

What's new Buenos Aires?
I'm new!
I want to say I'm just a little stuck on you
You'll be on me too!
I get out here Buenos Aires
Stand back
You ought to know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality!
Fill me up with your heat, with your noise
With your dirt, overdo me
Let me dance to your beat, make it loud
Let it hurt, run it through me
Don't hold back you are certain to impress
Tell the driver this is where I'm staying
Hello Buenos Aires!
Get this
Just look at me, dressed up somewhere to go
We'll put on a show!
Take me in at your flood, give me speed
Give me lights, set me humming
Shoot me up with your blood
Wine me up with your nights, watch me coming
All I want is a whole lot of excess
Tell the singer this is where I'm playing
Stand back Buenos Aires!
Because you ought to know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of star quality!
And if ever I go too far
It's because of the things you are
Beautiful town I love you
And if I need a moment's rest
Give your lover the very best
Real eiderdown and silence
You're a tramp, you're a treat
You will shine to the death, you are shoddy
But you're flesh, you are meat
You shall have every breath in my body
Put me down for a lifetime of success
Give me credit I'll find ways of paying
Rio de la Plata!
Florida! Corrientes! Nueve de Julio!
All I want to know!
Stand back Buenos Aires!
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of star quality!



ANOTHER SUITCASE IN ANOTHER HALL
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

I don't expect my love affairs to last for long
Never fool myself that my dreams will come true
Being used to trouble I anticipate it
But all the same I hate it wouldn't you?...
CHORUS:
So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?...
Time and time again I've said that I don't care
That I'm immune to gloom, that I'm hard through and through
But every time it matters all my words desert me
So anyone can hurt me and they do...
CHORUS:
So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?...
Call in three months time and I'll be fine I know
Well maybe not that fine but I'll survive anyhow
I won't recall the names and places of each sad occasion
But that's no consolation here and now...
CHORUS:
So what happens now?
(Another suitcase in another hall)
So what happens now?
(Take your picture off another wall)
Where am I going to?
(You'll get by you always have before)
Where am I going to?
Don't ask anymore...



GOODNIGHT AND THANK YOU
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Goodnight and thank you Huevo
She's in every magazine, been photographed, seen
She is known
We don't like to rush, but your case has been packed
If she's missed anything, you could give her a ring
But she won't always answer the phone
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
But we have pretended enough
It's best that we stop fooling ourselves
Which means...
There is noone, noone at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn't an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They're hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don't blame them
You're the same
Goodnight and thank you Emilio
You've completed your task, what more can we ask of you now?
Please sign the book on your way out the door
That will be all, if she needs you she'll call
But I don't think that's likely somehow
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
But when we were hot, we were hot
I know you'll look back on the good times we've shared
Which means...
There is noone, noone at all
Never has been and never will be a lover
Male or female
Who hasn't an eye on
In fact they rely on
Tricks they can try on their partner
They're hoping their lover will help them or keep them
Support them, promote them
Don't blame her
You're the same
There is no soap, no soap like Zaz
No detergent, lotion or oil with such power in the shower
It's the mother and father of luxury lather
The talk of the bath
The great ointment
One little frolic
With new Zaz carbolic
You're scented
You'll be sent
Goodnight and thank you Senor Gabon
We are grateful you found her a spot on the sound radio
We'll think of you every time she's on the air
We'd love you to stay
But you'd be in the way
So do up your trousers and go
Oh but it's sad when a love affair dies
The decline into silence and doubt
Our passion was just too intense to survive
Which means...
This is a club I should never have joined
Someone has made us look fools
Argentine men call the sexual shots
Someone has altered the rules
Fame on the wireless as far as it goes
Is all very well, but every girl knows
She needs a man she can monopolize
With fingers in dozens of different pies
Oh but it's sad when a love affair die



THE LADY'S GOT POTENTIAL
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

In June of 43 there was a military coup
Behind it was a gang called the G.O.U.
Who did not feel the need to be elected
They had themselves a party at the point of a gun
They were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun
A bomb or two and very few objected
Just one shell and governments fall like flies, ka-pow, die
They stubble and fall, bye bye
Backs to the wall, aim high
We're having a ball
The tank and bullet rule as democracy dies
The lady's got potential
She was setting her sights
Of making it in movies
With her name in lights
The greatest social climber
Since Cinderella
Okay she couldn't act
But she had the right friends
And we all know a career depends
On knowing the right fella to be stellar
Just one shell and governments lose their nerve, ka-pow, die
They stumble and fall, bye, bye
Backs to the wall, aim high
We're having a ball
That's how we get the government we deserve
Now the man behind the president calling the shots
Involved so discreetly in a lot of their plots
was Colonel Juan Peron would-be dictator
He began in the army out in Italy so
Saw Mussolini's rise from the very front row
I reckon he'd do likewise sooner or later
Just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain, ka-pow, die
They haven't a chance, bye bye
The terrorists advance
But one guy doesn't dirty his hands
Peron was biding time out in the slow lane
Suddenly a earthquake hit the town of San Juan, ka-pow, die
They stubble and fall, bye bye
Keep away from the wall
But one guy was having a ball
The tragedy a golden chance for Peron
He organized a concert with incredible flair
In aid of all the victims, such a grand affair
Politicians, actors, stars of every flavor
It was January 22, 1944
A night to remember, yeah that's for sure
For that's the night that Peron first met Eva
For that's the night that Peron first met Eva



CHARITY CONCERT / THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

On this night
On this night
On this night of a thousand stars
Let me take you to heaven's door
Where the music of love's guitars
Plays forever more
Magaldi?
Eva Duarte?
Your act hasn't changed much
Neither has yours
I stand here as a servant of the people
As we come together for a marvelous cause
You've shown by your presence, your deeds, and applause
What the people can do true power is yours not the government's
Unless it represents the people
One always picks the easy fight
One praises fools
One smothers light
One shifts from left to right
Politics, the art of the possible



I'D BE SURPRISINGLY GOOD FOR YOU
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Colonel Peron...
Eva Duarte...
I've heard so much about you!
I'm amazed for I'm only an actress (a soldier)
Nothing to shout about (One of the thousands)
Only a girl on the edge (Defending the country he loves)
But when you act, the things you do affect us all
But when you act, you take us away from the squalor of the real world
Are you here on your own?
Yes, Oh yes
So am I
What a fortunate coincidence
Maybe you're my reward for my efforts here tonight
It seems crazy but you must believe
There's nothing calculated, nothing planned
Please forgive me if I seem naive
I would never want to force your hand
But please understand
I'd be good for you
I don't always rush in like this
Twenty seconds after saying hello
Telling strangers I'm too good to miss
If I'm wrong I hope you'll tell me so
But you really should know
I'd be good for you
I'd be surprisingly good for you
I won't go on if I'm boring you
But do you understand my point of view
Do you like what you hear, what you see, and would you be
Good for me too?
I'm not talking of a hurried night
A frantic tumble then a shy goodbye
Creeping home before it gets too light
That's not the reason that I caught your eye
Which has to imply
I'd be good for you
I'd be surprisingly good for you
Please go on you enthrall me
I can understand you perfectly
And I like what I hear, what I see, and knowing me
I would be good for you too
I'm not talking of a hurried night
A frantic tumble then a shy goodbye
Creeping home before it gets too light
That's not the reason that I caught your eye
Which has to imply
I'd be good for you
I'd be surprisingly good for you



HELLO AND GOODBYE
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Hello and goodbye
I've just unemployed you
You can go back to school
You've had a good run
I'm sure he enjoyed you
Don't act sad or surprised let's be friends civilized
Come on little one! Don't sit there like a dummy!
The day you knew would arrive is here you'll survive
So move, funny face!
I like your conversation
You've a catchy turn of phrase
Your obviously going through some adolescent phase
So what happens now
So what happens now
Where am I going to
You'll get by you always have before
Where am I going to
Don't ask anymore...



PERON'S LATEST FLAME
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

At the watering-holes of the well-to-do
I detect a resistance to
Precisely!
Our heroine's style
We're glad you noticed
The shooting sticks of the upper class
Give her an inch
Aren't supporting a single ass
That would rise for the girl
She'll take a mile
Such a shame she wandered into our enclosure
How unfortunate this person has forced us to be blunt
No we wouldn't mind seeing her at Harrod's
But behind the jewelry counter
Not in front
Could there be
In our fighting corps
A lack of enthusiasm for
Exactly!
Peron's latest flame?
You said it brother
Should you wish to cause great distress
In the tidiest officer's mess
Just mention her name
That isn't funny!
Peron is a fool, breaking every taboo
Installing the girl in the army H.Q.
And she's an actress!
The last straw
Her only good parts are between her thighs
She should stare at the ceiling, not reach for the skies
Or she could be his last whore
The evidence suggests
She has other interests
If it's her who's using him
He's exceptionally dim
Bitch! Dangerous Jade!
We have allowed ourselves to slip
We have completely lost our grip
We have declined to an all-time low
Tarts have become the set to know
I'm only a radio star with just one weekly show
But speaking as one of the people I want you to know
We are tired of the decline of
Argentina with no sign of
A government able to give us the things we deserve
It's no crime for officers to do as they please
As long as they're discreet and keep clear of disease
We ignore, we disregard
But once they allow a bit on the side
To move to the center where she's not qualified
We are forced to mark his card
She should get into her head
She should not get out of bed
She should know that she's not paid
To be loud but to be laid
Slut! Dangerous Jade!
This has really been your year, Miss Duarte
Tell us where you go from here, Miss Duarte
Which are the roles that you yearn to play
Whom did you sleep, dine with yesterday?
Acting is limiting, the line's not mine
That's no help to the Argentine
Can we assume then that you'll quit?
Is this because of your involvement with Colonel Peron?
Goodnight and thank you
She won't be kept happy by her nights on the tiles
She says it's his body but she's after his files
So get back onto the street!
She should get into her head
She should not get out of bed
She should know that she's not paid
To be loud but to be laid
The evidence suggests
She has other interests
If it's her who's using him
He's exceptionally dim
Things have reached a pretty pass
When someone pretty lower class
Graceless and vulgar, uninspired
Can be accepted and admired



A NEW ARGENTINA
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Dice are rolling, the knives are out
Would be presidents are all around
I don't say they mean harm but they'd each give an arm
To see us six feet under ground
It doesn't matter what those morons say
Our nation's leaders are a feeble crew
There's only twenty of them anyway
What is twenty next to millions who
Are looking to you?
All you have to do is sit and wait
Keeping out of everybody's way
We'll, you'll be handed power on a plate
When the ones who matter have their say
And with chaos installed
You can reluctantly agree to be called
There again we could be foolish
Not to quit while we're ahead
For distance lends enchantment
And that is why
All exiles are distinguished
More important they're not dead
I could find job satisfaction
In Paraguay
This is crazy defeatist talk
Why commit political suicide?
There's no risk, there's no call
For any action at all
When you have unions on your side
A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be denied!
There is only one man who can lead any workers' regime
He lives for your problems
He shares your ideals and your dreams
He supports you for he loves you,
Understands you, is one of you
If not
How could he love me?
A new Argentina!
The workers' battle song!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people rings out loud and long!
Now I am a worker I've suffered the way that you do
I've been unemployed and I've starved and I've hated it too
But I found my salvation in Peron, may the nation
Let him save them as he saved me
A new Argentina!
A new age about to begin!
A new Argentina!
We face the world together and no dissent within
There again we could be foolish
Not to quit while were ahead
I can see us many miles away
Inactive, sipping cocktails on a terrace,
Taking breakfast in bed, sleeping easy,
Doing nothing, it's attractive.
Don't think I don't think like you
I often get those nightmares too
They always take some swallowing
Sometimes it's very difficult to keep momentum if
It's you that you are following
Don't close doors
Keep an escape clause
Because we might lose
The Big Apple
But would I have done, what I did
If I hadn't thought, if I hadn't known
We would take the country?
Peron has resigned from the army and this we avow
The descamisados are those he is marching with now!
He supports you for he loves you,
Understands you, is one of you
If not
How could he love me?
A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be, and must not be, denied!
How annoying that they have to fight elections for their cause
The inconvenience, having to get a majority.
If normal methods of persuasion fail to win them applause
There are other ways of establishing authority
A new Argentina!
The chains of the masses untied!
A new Argentina!
The voice of the people cannot be, and will not be, and must not be, denied!




DISC II
ON THE BALCONY OF THE CASA ROSADA 1
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

People of Argentina!
Your newly elected President Juan Peron!
Argentinos! Argentinos!
We are all workers now!
Fighting against our common enemies
Poverty, social injustice, foreign domination of our industries!
Reaching for our common goals
Our independence, our dignity, our pride!
Let the world know that our great nation is awakening
and that its heart beats in the humble bodies of Juan Peron
And his wife, the first lady of Argentina,
Eva Duarte de Peron!



DON'T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

It won't be easy
You'll think it's 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 hill
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...
CHORUS:
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 ask for fortune
And ask for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They're not the solutions they promise to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me...
CHORUS:
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...



ON THE BALCONY OF THE CASA ROSADA 2
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Just listen to that, the voice of Argentina
We are adored, we are loved
Statesmanship is more than entertaining peasants
We shall see little man
I am only a simple woman
Who lives to serve Peron in his noble crusade to rescue his people!
I was once as you are now!
And I promise you this... we will take the riches
From the oligarchs only for you -for all of you!
And one day you too will inherit these treasures! Descamisados!
When they fire those cannons, when the crowds sing of glory,
It is not just for Peron, but for all of us!
All of us!
Things have reached a pretty pass
When someone pretty lower class
Can be accepted and admired
But our privileged class is dead!
Look who they are calling for now!



HIGH FLYING, ADORED
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

High flying, adored
So young, the instant queen
A rich beautiful thing of all the talents
A cross between
A Fantasy of the bedroom and a saint
You were just a back street girl
Hustling and fighting
Scratching and biting
High flying, adored
Did you believe in your wildest moments
All this would be yours
That you'd become the lady of them all?
Were there stars in your eyes
When you crawled in at night
From the bars, from the sidewalks
From the gutter theatrical?
Don't look down, it's a long, long way to fall
High flying, adored
What happens now, where do you go from here?
For someone on top of the world
The view is not exactly clear
A shame you did it all at twenty-six
There are no mysteries now
Nothing can thrill you
No-one fulfill you
High flying, adored
I hope you come to terms with boredom
So famous, so easily, so soon, is not the wisest thing to be
You won't care if they love you, it's been done before
You'll despair if they hate you
You'll be drained of all energy
All the young who've made it would agree
High flying, adored, that's good to hear, but unimportant
My story's quite usual
Local girl makes good, weds famous man
I was stuck in the right place at the perfect time
Filled a gap I was lucky
But one thing I'll say for me
No one else can fill it like I can



RAINBOW HIGH
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

There again I've more to do
Than simply get the message through
I haven't started!
Let's get this show on the road
Let's make it obvious
Peron is off and rolling
Eyes! Hair! Mouth! Figure!
Dress! Voice! Style! Movement!
Hands! Magic! Rings! Glamour!
Face! Diamonds! Excitement! Image!
I came from the people
They need to adore me
So Christian Dior me
From my head to my toes
I need to be dazzling
I want to be Rainbow High!
They must have excitement
And so must I
Eyes! Hair! Mouth! Figure!
Dress! Voice! Style! Movement!
I'm their product
It's vital you sell me
So Machiavell-me
Make an Argentine Rose!
I need to be thrilling
I want to be Rainbow High!
They need their escape
And so do I
Eyes! Hair! Mouth! Figure!
Dress! Voice! Style! Movement!
Hands! Magic! Rings! Glamour!
Face! Diamonds! Excitement! Image!
All my descamisados expect me to outshine the enemy
I won't disappoint them!
I'm their savior!
That's what they call me
So Lauren Bacall me
Anything goes
To make me fantastic
I have to be Rainbow High
In magical colors
You're not decorating a girl for a night on the town!
And I'm not a second-rate queen getting kicks with a crown!
Next stop will be Europe!
The Rainbow's gonna tour
Dressed up, somewhere to go
We'll put on a show!
Look out, mighty Europe!
Because you oughta know whatcha gonna get in me
Just a little touch of
Just a little touch of
Argentina's brand of Star quality!



RAINBOW TOUR
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

People of Europe! I send you the Rainbow of Argentina!
Spain has fallen to the charms of Evita
She can do what she likes it doesn't matter much
She's our Lady of the New World with the golden touch
She filled a bull-ring forty-five thousand seater
But if you're prettier than General Franco that's not hard
Franco's reign in Spain should see out the forties
So you've just acquired an ally who
Looks as secure in his job as you
But more important, current political thought is
Your wife's a phenomenal asset
Your trump card
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Will Evita win through?
But the answer is yes!
There you are, I told you so
Makes no difference where she goes
The whole world over just the same
Just listen to them call her name
And who would underestimate the actress now?
Now I don't like to spoil a wonderful story
But the news from Rome isn't quite as good
She hasn't gone down like we thought she would
Italy's unconvinced by Argentine glory
They equate Peron with Mussolini
Can't think why
Did you hear that?
They called me a whore!
They actually called me a whore!
But Signora Peron
It's an easy mistake
I'm still called an admiral yet I gave up the sea long ago
More bad news from Rome she met with the Pope
She only got a rosary, a kindly word
I wouldn't say the Holy Father gave her the bird
But Papal decorations never a hope
She still looked the part at St. Peter's
Caught the eye
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
But the answer is
A qualified
Yes!
Eva started well, no question, in France
Shining like the sun through the post-war haze
A beautiful reminder of the carefree days
She nearly captured the French, she sure had the chance
But she suddenly seemed to lose interest
She looked tired
Face the facts, the Rainbow's starting to fade
I don't think she'll make it to England now
It wasn't on the schedule anyhow
You'd better get out the flags and fix a parade
Some kind of coming home in triumph
Is required.
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure, we had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
And the answer is
Yes
And no
And yes
And no
And yes... No
Let's hear it for the Rainbow Tour
It's been an incredible success
We weren't quite sure
We had a few doubts
Would Evita win through?
But the answer is yes
Yes



THE ACTRESS HASN'T LEARNED THE LINES (YOU'D LIKE TO HEAR)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Thus all fairy stories end
Only an actress would pretend
Affairs of state are her latest play
Eight shows a week two matinees
My how the worm begins to turn
When will the chorus girl ever learn?
My how the worm begins to turn
When will the chorus girl ever learn?
The chorus girl hasn't learned the lines
You'd like to hear
She won't go scrambling
over the backs of the poor to be accepted
By making donations just large enough...
to the correct charity
She won't be president of your wonderful societies of philanthropy
Even if you asked her to be
As you should have asked her to be
The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear
She won't join your clubs, she won't dance in your halls
She won't help the hungry once a month at your tombolas
She'll simply take control as you disappear
Forgive my intrusion but fine as those sentiments sound
Little has changed for us peasants down here on the ground
I hate to sound childish, ungrateful, I don't like to moan
But do you now represent anyone's cause but your own?
Everything done will be justified by my Foundation



AND THE MONEY KEPT ROLLING IN (AND OUT)
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

And the money kept rolling in from every side
Eva's pretty hands reached out and they reached wide
Now you may feel it should have been a voluntary cause
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling in, you don't ask how
Think of all the people guaranteed a good time now
Eva's called the hungry to her, open up the doors
Never been a fund like the Foundation Eva Peron
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' rollin' rollin', rollin' rollin' rollin'
Rollin' on in, rollin' on in
Rollin' on in, rollin' on in
On in
Would you like to try a college education?
Own your landlord's house, take the family on vacation?
Eva and her blessed fund can make your dreams come true
Here's all you have to do my friends
Write your name and your dream on a card or a pad or a ticket
Throw it high in the air and should our lady pick it
She will change your way of life for a week or even two
Name me anyone who cares as much as Eva Peron
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out
And the money kept rolling out in all directions
To the poor, to the weak, to the destitute of all complexions
Now cynics claim a little of the cash has gone astray
But that's not the point my friends
When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books
You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks
Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way
Never been a lady loved as much as Eva Peron
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out
Eva!!!
When the money keeps rolling out you don't keep books
You can tell you've done well by the happy grateful looks
Accountants only slow things down, figures get in the way
Never been a lady loved as much as Eva Peron
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
Rollin' on out, rollin' on out
On out



PARTIDO FEMINISTA
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Evita Peron! Partido Feminista!
Peron is everything!
He's the soul, the nerve, the hope and the
Reality of the Argentine people
We all know that there is only
One man in our movement with his own source of light
We all feed
From his light and that is Peron
Evita Peron! Partido Feminista!
And now she wants to be Vice-President
That was the over-the-top unacceptable suggestion
We didn't approve but we couldn't prevent the games
Of the wife of the president
But to give her intentions encouragement
She's out of her depth and out of the question



SHE IS A DIAMOND
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

But on the other hand she's all they have
She's a diamond in their dull gray lives and that's the
Hardest kind of stone it usually survives
And when you think about it, can you recall
The last time they loved anyone at all?
She's not a bauble you can brush aside
She's been out doing what we just talked about example
Gave us back our businesses, got the English out
And when you think about it well why not do
One or two of the things we promised to?
But on the other hand she's slowing down
She's lost a little of that magic drive but I would
Not advise those critics present to derive
Any satisfaction from her fading star
She's the one who's kept us where we are
She's the one who's kept you where you are



SANTA EVITA
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Please, gentle Eva, will you bless a little child?
For I love you, tell Heaven I'm doing my best
I'm praying for you, even though you're already blessed
Please, mother Eva, will you look upon me as your own?
Make me special, be my angel
Be my everything, wonderful, perfect, and true
And I'll try to be exactly like you
Please, holy Eva, will you feed a hungry child?
For I love you, tell Heaven I'm doing my best
I'm praying for you, even though you're already blessed
Please, mother Eva, will you feed a hungry child?
For I love you (turn a blind eye Evita), tell Heaven I'm doing my best (turn a blind eye Evita)
I'm praying for you, even though you're already blessed
Santa Santa Evita
Madre de todos los ninos
De los tiranizados
De los descamisados
De los trabajadores
De la Argentina
Santa Santa Evita
Madre de todos los ninos
De los tiranizados
De los descamisados
De los trabajadores
De la Argentina



WALTZ FOR EVA AND CHE
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Tell me before I waltz out of your life
Before turning my back on the past
Forgive my impertinent behavior
But how long do you think this pantomime can last?
Tell me before I ride off in the sunset
There's one thing I never got clear
How can you claim you're our savior
When those who oppose you
Are stepped on, or cut up, or simply disappear?
Tell me before you get onto your bus
Before joining the forgotten brigade
How can one person like me, say,
Alter the time-honored way the game is played?
Tell me before you get onto your high horse
Just what you expect me to do
I don't care what the bourgeoisie say
I'm not in business for them but to give all my descamisados
A magical moment or two
There is evil, ever around, fundamental
System of government quite incidental
So what are my chances
Of honest advances?
I'd say low
Better to win
By admitting my sin
Than to lose with a halo
Tell me before I seek worthier pastures
And thereby restore self-esteem
How can you be so short-sighted
To look never further than this week or next week
To have no impossible dream?
Allow me to help you slink off to the sidelines
And mark your adieu with three cheers
But first tell me who'd be delighted
If I said I'd take on the
The world's greatest problems
From war to pollution?
No hope of solution
Even if I lived for one hundred years
There is evil, ever around, fundamental
System of government quite incidental
So go, if you're able
To somewhere unstable
And stay there
Whip up your hate
In some tottering state
But not here, dear
Is that clear, dear?
Oh what I'd give for a hundred years!
But the physical interferes
Every day more
Oh my Creator!
What is the good of the strongest heart
In a body that's falling apart?
A serious flaw
I hope you know that



YOUR LITTLE BODY'S SLOWLY BREAKING DOWN
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Your little body's slowly breaking down
You're losing speed
You're losing strength not style that goes on
Flourishing forever, but your eyes, your smile
Do not have the sparkle of your fantastic past
If you climb one more mountain it could be your last
I'm not that ill bad moments come but they go
Some days are fine, some a little bit harder
But that doesn't mean
We should give up our dream
Have you ever seen
Me defeated?
Don't you forget what I've been through and yet
I'm still standing
Eva, you are dying
So what happens now?
Where am I going to?
Don't ask anymore...



YOU MUST LOVE ME
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

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?...
CHORUS:
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...
CHORUS:
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...



EVA'S FINAL BROADCAST
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

The actress hasn't learned the lines you'd like to hear
She's sad for her country
Sad to be defeated by her own weak body
Evita! Evita! Evita!
I want to tell the people of Argentina
I've decided I should decline
All the honors and titles you've pressed me to take
For I'm contented let me simply go on
As the woman who brings her people to the heart of Peron!
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I shall not leave you
Though it may get harder
For you to see me
I'm Argentina
And always will be
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



LATIN CHANT
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

Respice, quaesumus, Domine
Famulam tuam Evita
In infirmitate
Et animam refove, quam creasti
Ut castigationibus emendata
Se tua sentiat medicina salvatam
Per Christum, Dominuum
Qui vivit et regnat
Per omnia saecula saeculorum
Amen
She had her moments
She had some style
The best show in town was the crowd
Outside the Casa Rosada crying 'Eva Peron'
But that's all gone now



LAMENT
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

The choice was mine and mine completely
I could have any prize that I desired
I could burn with the splendor of the brightest fire
Or else or else I could choose time
Remember I was very young then
And a year was forever and a day
So what use could fifty, sixty, seventy be?
I saw the lights and I was on my way
And how I lived! How they shone!
But how soon the lights were gone!
The choice was yours and no one else's
You can cry for a body in despair
Hang your head because she is no longer there
To shine, or dazzle, or betray
How she lived, how she shone
But how soon the lights were gone
(Eyes, hair, face, image
All must be preserved
Still life displayed forever
No less than she deserved)




MADONNA - RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM (1998)




DROWNED WORLD / SUBSTITUTE FOR LOVE
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Rod McKuen, Anita Kerr and David Collins

I traded fame for love
Without a second thought
It all became a silly game
Some things cannot be bought
I got exactly what I asked for
Wanted it so badly
Running, rushing back for more
I suffered fools
So gladly
And now I find
I've changed my mind...
CHORUS:
The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love...
I traveled round the world
Looking for a home
I found myself in crowded rooms
Feeling so alone
I had so many lovers
Who settled for the thrill
Of basking in my spotlight
I never felt
So happy...
CHORUS:
The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love...
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
Oh oh oh ohh...
Famous faces, far off places
Trinkets I can buy
No handsome stranger, heady danger
Drug that I can try
No ferris wheel, no heart to steal
No laughter in the dark
No one night stand, no far off land
No fire that I can spark...
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm...
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm...
CHORUS:
The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Mmmm mmm mmm mmm mmm...
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love...
Now I find I've changed my mind...
This is my religion...



SWIM
Written by Madonna and William Orbit

Put your head on my shoulder baby
Things can't get any worse
Night is getting colder
Sometimes life feels like it's a curse
CHORUS:
I can't carry these sins on my back
Don't wanna carry anymore
I'm gonna carry this train off the track
I'm gonna swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmm...
Crash to the other shore....
Mmmmmm...
Swim to the ocean floor...
Children killing children
While the students rape their teachers
Comets fly across the sky
While the churches burn their preachers
CHORUS:
We can't carry these sins on our back
Don't wanna carry anymore
We're gonna carry this train off the track
We're gonna swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmm...
Crash to the other shore...
Mmmmmm...
Swim to the ocean floor...
Let the water wash over you
Wash it all over you
Swim to the ocean floor
So that we can begin again
Wash away all our sin
Crash to the other shore
Mmmmmm...
CHORUS:
I can't carry these sins on my back
Don't wanna carry anymore
I'm gonna carry this train off the track
I'm gonna swim to the ocean floor
Mmmmmm...
Crash to the other shore...
Mmmmmm...
Swim to the ocean floor...
We can't carry these sins on our back
Don't wanna carry anymore
We're gonna carry this train off the track
We're gonna swim to the ocean floor...
Crash to the other shore....
Swim to the ocean floor...
Mmmmmmmmm...
Ooooo...



RAY OF LIGHT
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Clive Muldoon, Dave Curtis and Christine Leach

Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
Do my tears of mourning
Sink beneath the sun
She's got herself a universe gone quickly
For the call of thunder
Threatens everyone...
CHORUS:
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel...
Faster than the speeding light she's flying
Trying to remember where it all began
She's got herself a little piece of heaven
Waiting for the time when earth shall be as one...
CHORUS:
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel...
Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light
Quicker than a ray of light...
Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
Do my tears of mourning
Sink beneath the sun...
She's got herself a universe gone quickly
For the call of thunder
Threatens everyone...
And I feel
Quicker than a ray of light
Then gone for
Someone else shall be there
Thru the endless years
She's got herself a universe
She's got herself a universe
She's got herself a universe...
And I feel
And I feel
And I feel
Like I just got home
And I feel
Quicker than a ray of light she's flying
Quicker than a ray of light I'm flying...



CANDY PERFUME GIRL
Written by Madonna, William Orbit and Susannah Melvoin

Young velvet porcelain boy
Devour me when you're with me

Your candy perfume girl
Moist warm desire

I'm your candy perfume girl...
Boy, girl, boy, girl, boy...
Candy...



SKIN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere
Why do you leave me wanting more
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before...
Put your hand on my skin...
Put your hand on my skin...
Put your hand on my skin...
Kiss me, I'm dying
Put your hand on my skin
I close my eyes
I need to make a connection
I'm walking on a thin line
I close my eyes
I close my eyes...
CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere
Why do you leave me wanting more
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before...
(Kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss me)
Touch me, I'm trying
To see inside of your soul
I've got this thing
I want to make a connection
I'm not like this all the time
You've got this thing
You've got this thing...
CHORUS:
Do I know you from somewhere
Why do you leave me wanting more
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before...
Kiss me, I'm dying
Put your hand on my skin
I close my eyes
I need to have your protection
I close my eyes
I close your eyes...
(Kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss me)

Why do you leave me wanting more
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before
Do I know you from somewhere
Why do you leave me wanting more
Why do all the things I say
Sound like the stupid things I've said before...
Kiss me, I'm dying
Touch me, I'm trying, ohhhh
I'm not like this all the time
I'm not like this all the time
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
Touch me, I'm trying, ohhhh
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin
I'm not like this all the time (kiss, kiss,...)
I'm not like this all the time (kiss, kiss,...)
I'm not like this all the time (kiss, kiss, kiss me...)
Put your hand on my skin
Put your hand on my skin...



NOTHING REALLY MATTERS
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

When I was very young
Nothing really mattered to me
But making myself happy
I was the only one
Now that I am grown
Everything's changed
I'll never be the same
Because of you...
CHORUS:
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me...
Looking at my life
It's very clear to me
I lived so selfishly
I was the only one
I realize
That nobody wins
Something is ending
And something begins...
CHORUS:
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me...
Nothing takes the past away
Like the future...
Nothing makes the darkness go
Like the light...
You're shelter from the storm...
Give me comfort in your arms...
CHORUS:
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need
Everything I give you
All comes back to me
Nothing really matters
Love is all we need...



SKY FITS HEAVEN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

Sky fits heaven so fly it
That's what the prophet said to me
Child fits mother so hold your baby tight
That's what my future could see
Fate fits karma so use it
That's what the wise man said to me
Love fits virtue so hold on to the light
That's what our future will be...
CHORUS:
Traveling down this road
Watching the signs as I go
I think I'll follow the sun
Isn't everyone just
Traveling down their own road
Watching the signs as they go
I think I'll follow my heart
It's a very good place to start...
Traveling down my own road
Watching the signs as I go
Traveling down my own road
And I'm watching the signs as I go...
Traveling traveling...
Watching the signs as I go...
Hand fits giving so do it
That's what the Gospel said to me
Life fits living so let your judgments go
That's how our future should be...
CHORUS:
Traveling down this road
Watching the signs as I go
I think I'll follow the sun
Isn't everyone just
Traveling down their own road
Watching the signs as they go
I think I'll follow my heart
It's a very good place to start...
Traveling down my own road
Watching the signs as they go
Traveling down my own road
And I'm watching the signs as I go
Traveling traveling
Watching the signs as I go...

FROZEN
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard

You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen
When your heart's not open
You're so consumed with how much you get
You waste your time with hate and regret
You're broken
When your heart's not open...
CHORUS:
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold...the key...
Now there's no point in placing the blame
And you should know I suffer the same
If I lose you
My heart will be broken...
Love is a bird
She needs to fly
Let all the hurt inside you die
You're frozen
When your heart's not open...
CHORUS:
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold...the key...
You only see what your eyes want to see
How can life be what you want it to be
You're frozen
When your heart's not open...
CHORUS:
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold the key
Mmmmm, if I could melt your heart
Mmmmm, we'd never be apart
Mmmmm, give yourself to me
Mmmmm, you hold...the key...
If I could melt your heart...



THE POWER OF GOOD-BYE
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels

Your heart is not open
So I must go
The spell has been broken
I loved you so
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no
You were my lesson
I had to learn
I was your fortress
You had to burn
Pain is a warning that something's wrong
I pray to God that it won't be long
Do you wanna go higher?
CHORUS:
There's nothing left to try
There's no place left to hide
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye...
Your heart is not open
So I must go
The spell has been broken
I loved you so
You were my lesson
I had to learn
I was your fortress...
CHORUS:
There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye...
Learn to say good-bye...
I yearn to say good-bye...
CHORUS:
There's nothing left to try
There's no more places to hide
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye
There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye...



TO HAVE AND NOT TO HOLD
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels

To have and not to hold
So hot yet so cold
My heart is in your hand
And yet you never stand
Close enough for me to have my way
To love but not to keep
To laugh not to weep
Your eyes they go right through
And yet you never do
Anything to make me want to stay
Like a moth
To a flame
Only I
Am to blame...
CHORUS:
Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do?
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told
You're to have not to hold...
To look but not to see
To kiss but never be
The object of your desire
I'm walking on a wire
And there's no one at all
To break my fall
Like a moth
To a flame
Only I
Am to blame...
CHORUS:
Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do?
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told
You're to have not to hold...
You're to have not to hold...
You're to have
Not to hold...
Like a moth
To a flame
Only I
Am to blame...
CHORUS:
Ba ba da ba ba ba, what can I do?
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I go straight to you
Ba ba da ba ba ba, I've been told...
You're to have not to hold...
You're to have not to hold...
You're to have not to hold...
You're to have...
Not to hold...



LITTLE STAR
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels

Never forget who you are
Little star...
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly...
God gave a present to me
Made of flesh and bones
My life
My soul
You make my spirit whole...
Never forget who you are
Little star
Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly
Never forget where you come from
From love
You are a treasure to me
You are my star
You breathe
New life
Into my broken heart...
Never forget who you are
Little star
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly...
May the angels protect you
And sadness forget you
Little star
There's no reason to weep
Lay your head down to sleep
Little star
May goodness surround you
My love I have found you
Little star
Shining bright...
You breathe
New life
Into my broken heart
Never forget who you are
Little star
Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream
Butterfly
Flying higher than all the birds in the sky
Never forget who you are
Little star
Never forget where you come from
From love
Little star...
Little star...
Little star...
From love...



MER GIRL
Written by Madonna and William Orbit

I ran from my house
That cannot contain me
From the man that I cannot keep
From my mother who haunts me
Even though she's gone
From my daughter that never sleeps
I ran from the noise and the silence
From the traffic on the streets
I ran to the treetops
I ran to the sky
Out to the lake
Into the rain
That matted my hair
And soaked my shoes and skin
Hid my tears, hid my fears
I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and I ran
I was looking for me
I ran past the churches
And the crooked old mailbox
Past the apple orchards
And the lady that never talks
Up into the hills
I ran to the cemetery
And held my breath
And thought about your death
I ran to the lake
Up into the hills
I ran and I ran
I'm looking there still
And I saw the crumbling tombstones
All forgotten names
I tasted the rain
I tasted my tears
I cursed the angels
I tasted my fears
And the ground gave way beneath my feet
And the earth took me in her arms
Leaves covered my face
Ants marched across my back
Black sky opened up
Blinding me
I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and I ran
I was looking for me
I ran to the lakes
And up to the hill
I ran and I ran
I'm looking there still
And I smelt her burning flesh
Her rotting bones
Her decay
I ran and I ran
I'm still running away...




MADONNA - RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM JAPANESE EDITION (1998)

HAS TO BE
Written by Madonna, William Orbit and Patrick Leonard

Breathe in
Breathe out
I say a little prayer
How the Gods above
Could be so unfair...
CHORUS:
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be...
Go on...
Go on...
Don't sit there like a fool
You've graduated from
A different kind of school...
CHORUS:
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be...
I should be glad that I'm alive
It could have been much worse
I might have never loved at all
And never know what I am worth
How the Gods above
Could be so unfair...(could be so unfair)
CHORUS:
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be
I know there's someone out there
Waiting for me
There must be someone out there
There just has to be...

It's like riding on the wind
And it never goes away
Touches everything I'm in
Got to have it everyday...

IMPRESSIVE INSTANT
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

Universe is full of stars
Nothing out there looks the same
You're the one that I've been waiting for
I don't even know your name
I'm in a trance...
I'm in a trance...
Cosmic systems intertwine
Astral bodies drip like wine
All of nature ebbs and flows
Comets shoot across the sky
Can't explain the reasons why
This is how creation goes
I don't want nobody else (body else)
All the others look the same (the same)
Galaxies are sliding into view
I don't even know your name
I'm in a trance
And the world is spinning
Spinning baby out of control
I'm in a trance
I let the music take me
Take me where my heart wants to go
I'm in a trance
And the world is spinning
Spinning baby out of control
I'm in a trance
I let the music take me
Take me where my heart wants to go
Kiss me, kiss me
Kiss me, kiss me
I like to singy singy singy
Like a bird on a wingy wingy wingy
I like to rhumba rhumba rhumba
Dance to a samba samba samba
Ah ah ah
Samba samba samba
Ah ah ah
Samba samba samba
Ah ah ah
I'm in a trance
And the world is spinning
Spinning baby out of control
I'm in a trance
I let the music take me
Take me where my heart wants to go
I'm in a trance
And the world is spinning
Spinning baby out of control
I'm in a trance
I let the music take me
Take me where my heart wants to go
Trance
I'm in a trance
Universe is full of stars
Nothing out there looks the same
You're the one that I've been waiting for
I don't even know your name



RUNAWAY LOVER
Written by Madonna and William Orbit

You lost your reputation on a woman
You didn't understand or care to know
You get your education from your lovers
But now there's just no place for you to go
It doesn't pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesn't pay
To give away what you lack
You'll never get your money back
You're set adrift with no direction
Just like a ship that's lost at sea
You don't care where you drop your anchor
Make sure it doesn't land on me
CHORUS:
It doesn't pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesn't pay
To give away what you lack
You'll never get your money back
It doesn't pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesn't pay
To give away what you lack
You'll never get your money back...
(It doesn't pay, doesn't pay, doesn't pay,...)
Walking around on a cloud
'Cause every girl you meet just trips on you
Saying your name out loud
I guess you met your match
Now what will you do
Uh uh, no way
CHORUS:
It doesn't pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesn't pay
To give away what you lack
You'll never get your money back
It doesn't pay
To be a runaway lover
It doesn't pay
To give away what you lack
You'll never get your money back...
Walking around on a cloud
'Cause every girl you meet just trips on you
Saying your name out loud
I guess you met your match
Now what will you do
It doesn't pay
It doesn't pay
It doesn't pay
To give your heart away
To a runaway lover
Uh uh, no way
Uh uh, no way
Uh uh, no way



I DESERVE IT
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

This guy was meant for me
And I was meant for him
This guy was dreamt for me
And I was dreamt for him
This guy has danced for me
And I have danced for him
This guy has cried for me
And I have cried for him
CHORUS:
Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today...
This guy has prayed for me
And I have prayed for him
This guy was made for me
And I was made for him
CHORUS:
Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today...
I have no regrets
There's nothing to forget
All the pain was worth it
Not running from the past
I tried to do what's best
I know that I deserve it
CHORUS:
Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today
Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today
And I thank you...



AMAZING
Written by Madonna and William Orbit

You took a pretty picture
And you smashed into bits
Sank me into blackness
And you sealed it with a kiss
If only I could let you go
Why do I need you so
CHORUS:
It's amazing what a boy can do
I cannot stop myself
Wish I didn't want you like I do
Want you and no one else...
You took a poison arrow
And you aimed it at my heart
It's heavy and it's bitter
And it's tearing me apart
If only I could set you free
You worked your way inside of me
CHORUS:
It's amazing what a boy can do
I cannot stop myself
Wish I didn't want you like I do
Want you and no one else
It's amazing what a boy can say
I cannot stop myself
Seems I love you more than yesterday
Love you and no one else...
Oh it's amazing...
CHORUS:
It's amazing what a boy can do
I cannot stop myself
Wish I didn't want you like I do
Want you and no one else
It's amazing what a boy can say
I cannot stop myself
Seems I love you more than yesterday
Love you and no one else...
It's amazing...
Oh it's amazing...
I cannot stop myself...
Wish I didn't
Love you and no one else...



NOBODY'S PERFECT
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

Cool I am
When I am with you
Cool I'm not
When I am lonely
I feel so sad
What I did wasn't right
I feel so bad
And I must say to you
Sorry, but
CHORUS:
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
What did you expect
I'm doing my best...
I feel so sad
But you know I'll be true
I feel so bad
And I must say to you
Sorry, but
CHORUS:
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
What did you expect
I’m doing my best
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
I was dishonest
I will do my best...

I was dishonest
I will do my best...
Yeah...
Mmm mmm yeah

Perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect
Mmm mmm yeah
Mmm mmm yeah
Perfect, perfect, perfect, perfect...



DON'T TELL ME
Written by Madonna, Mirwais Ahmadzaï and Joe Henry

Don't tell me to stop
Tell the rain not to drop
Tell the wind not to blow
Cause you said so
Mmm mmm
Tell the sun not to shine
Not to get up this time, no no
Let it fall by the way
But don't leave me where I lay down
CHORUS:
Tell me love isn't true
It's just something that we do
Tell me everything I'm not
But please don't tell me to stop...
Tell the leaves not to turn
But don't ever tell me I'll learn, no no
Take the black off a crow
But don't tell me I have to go
Tell the bed not to lay
Like the open mouth of a grave, yeah
Not to stare up at me
Like a calf down on its knees
CHORUS:
Tell me love isn't true
It's just something that we do
Tell me everything I'm not
But don't ever tell me to stop
(Don't you ever)
Tell me love isn't true
It's just something that we do
(Don't you ever)
Tell me everything I'm not
But don't ever tell me to stop...
(Don't you ever)
Please don't...
Please don't...
Please don't tell me to stop...
(Don't you ever tell me)
Don't you...
Ever...
Don't ever tell me to stop...
(Tell the rain not to drop)
Tell the bed not to lay
Like the open mouth of grave, yeah
Not to stare up at me
Like a calf down on its knees...



WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR A GIRL
Written by Madonna and Guy Sigsworth

(Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots
Cause it's okay to be a boy)
(But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
Cause you think being a girl is degrading
But secretly
You'd love to know what it's like
Wouldn't you?)
What it feels like for a girl...
Silky smooth
Lips as sweet as candy, baby
Tight blue jeans
Skin that shows in patches
Strong inside but you don't know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak
CHORUS:
Do you know what it feels like
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl?
Hair that twirls on finger tips so gently, baby
Hands that rest on jutting hips repenting
Hurt that's not supposed to show and
Tears that fall when no one knows
When you're trying hard to be your best
Could you be a little less
CHORUS:
Do you know what it feels like
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like in this world
What it feels like for a girl?
Strong inside but you don't know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak
CHORUS:
Do you know what it feels like
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like
for a girl?
Do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl?
In this world...
Do you know?...
Do you know?...
Do you know what it feels like
for a girl?
What it feels like in this world?



PARADISE (NOT FOR ME)
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

I can't remember
When I was young
I can't explain
If it was wrong
My life goes on
But not the same
Into your eyes
My face remains
CHORUS:
I've been so high
I've been so down
Up to the skies
Down to the ground...
I was so blind
I could not see
Your paradise
Is not for me
Autour de moi
Je ne vois pas
Qui sont les anges
Surement pas moi
Encore une fois
Je suis cassée
Encore une fois
Je n'y crois pas
CHORUS:
I've been so high
I've been so down
Up to the skies
Down to the ground...
There is a light
Above my head
Into your eyes
My face remains...
CHORUS:
I've been so high
I've been so down
Up to the skies
Down to the ground...
I can't remember
When I was young...
Into your eyes
My face remains
Into your eyes
My face remains
CHORUS:
I've been so high
I've been so down
Up to the skies
Down to the ground
I've been so high
I've been so down
Up to the skies
Down to the ground...



GONE
Written by Madonna, Damian le Gassick and Nik Young

Selling out
Is not my thing
Walk away
I won't be broken again
I'm not
I'm not what you think
Dream away your life
Someone else's dream
Nothing equals nothing
Letting go
Is not my thing
Walk away
Won't let it happen again
I'm not
I'm not very smart
Why should I feel sad
For what I never had
Nothing equals nothing
CHORUS:
Turn to stone
Lose my faith
I'll be gone
Before it happens
Turn to stone
Lose my faith
I'll be gone
Before it happens...
Selling out
Is not my thing
Walk away
I won't be broken again
I won't
I won't fall apart
Dream away your life
Dream away your dreams
Nothing equals nothing
CHORUS:
Turn to stone
Lose my faith
I'll be gone
Before it happens
Turn to stone
Lose my faith
I'll be gone
Before it happens
Turn to stone (turn to stone)
Lose my faith (lose my faith)
I'll be gone
Before it happens
Turn to stone (turn to stone)
Lose my faith (lose my faith)
I'll be gone...



AMERICAN PIE
Written by Don McLean

A long long time ago I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile
And I knew that if I had my chance
I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while
Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so
Now do you believe in rock 'n roll
And can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow
Well, I know that you're in love with him
Cause I saw you dancin in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues
I was a lonely teenage broncin buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew that I was out of luck
The day the music died
I started singing
CHORUS:
Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin whiskey and rye
Singin this will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die...
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news
But she just smiled and turned away
Well, I went down to the sacred store
Where I'd heard the music years before
But the man there said the music wouldn't play
Well now in the streets the children screamed
The lovers cried and the poets dreamed
But not a word was spoken
The church bells all were broken
And the three men I admire the most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died
We started singing
CHORUS:
Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin whiskey and rye
Singin this will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die
Bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my chevy to the levee
But the levee was dry
And good old boys were drinkin whiskey and rye
Singin this will be the day that I die
This will be the day that I die
We started singin'
We started singin'
We started singin'...

MADONNA - AMERICAN LIFE ALBUM (2003)




AMERICAN LIFE
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?
I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best
I guess I did it wrong
That's why I wrote this song
This type of modern life
Is it for me
This type of modern life
Is it for free
So, I went into a bar
Looking for sympathy
A little company
I tried to find a friend
It's more easily said
It's always been the same
This type of modern life
Is not for me
This type of modern life
Is not for free
CHORUS:
American life (American life)
I live the american dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream (American life)...
I tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
I tried to play the part
But somehow I forgot
Just what I did it for
And why I wanted more
This type of modern life
Is it for me
This type of modern life
Is it for free
Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?
CHORUS:
American life (American life)
I live the american dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream (American life)
(American life)
I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best
I tried to find a friend
I tried to stay ahead
I tried to stay on top
(Fuck it)
Do I have to change my name?
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight?
Am I gonna be a star?
Aah (Fuck it)
Aah (Fuck it)
Aah (Fuck it)
Aah (Fuck it)
I'm drinking a Soy latte
I get a double shote
It goes right through my body
And you know I'm satisfied
I drive my mini cooper
And I'm feeling super-dooper
Yo they tell I'm a trooper
And you know I'm satisfied
I do yoga and pilates
And the room is full of hotties
So I'm checking out the bodies
And you know I'm satisfied
I'm digging on the isotopes
This metaphysic's shit is dope
And if all this can give me hope
You know I'm satisfied
I got a lawyer and a manager
An agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant
And a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler
And a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist
Do you think I'm satisfied
I'd like to express my extreme point of view
I'm not a christian and I'm not a jew
I'm just living out the american dream
And I just realised that nothing
Is what it seems
Do I have to change my name? (American life)
Am I gonna be a star? (I live the American dream)
Do I have to change my name? (American life)
Am I gonna be a star? (I live the American dream)
Do I have to change my name? (American life)
(I live the American dream) (American life)
(I live the American dream) (American life)
(I live the American dream)



HOLLYWOOD
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighbourhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good
CHORUS
Shine your light now
This time it's got to be good
You get it right now, yeah
Cause you're in Hollywood...
There's something in the air in Hollywood
The sun is shining like you knew it would
You're ridin' in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good
Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighbourhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good
I lost my memory in Hollywood
I've had a million visions bad and good
There's something in the air in Hollywood
I tried to leave it but I never could
CHORUS:
Shine your light now
This time it's got to be good
You get it right now, yeah
Cause you're in Hollywood...
There's something in the air in Hollywood
I've lost my reputation bad and good
You're ridin' in your car in Hollywood
You got the top down and it feels so good

I'm bored with the concept of right and wrong
Everybody comes to Hollywood
They wanna make it in the neighbourhood
They like the smell of it in Hollywood
How could it hurt you when it looks so good
CHORUS:
Shine your light now
This time it's got to be good
You get it right now, yeah

I'M SO STUPID
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

Cause I used to live
In a fuzzy dream
And I wanted to be
Like all the pretty people
I'm so stupid
Cause I used to live
In a fuzzy dream
And I used to believe
In pretty pictures
That were all around me
But now I know for sure
That I was stupid
CHORUS:
Please don't try to tempt me
It was just greed
And it won't protect me
Don't want my dreams
Adding up to nothing
I was just looking for
Everybody's looking for something...
I'm so stupid
Cause I used to live
In a tiny bubble
And I wanted to be
Like all the pretty people
That were all around me
But now I know for sure
That I was stupid
Stupider than stupid...
Stupider than stupid...
Stupider than stupid...
CHORUS:
Please don't try to tempt me
It was just greed
And it won't protect me
Don't want my dreams
Adding up to nothing
I was just looking for
Everybody's looking for something...
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody's stupid stupid...
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody's stupid stupid...
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody's stupid stupid...
Everybody's looking for something
Everybody, everybody...
CHORUS:
Please don't try to tempt me
It was just greed
And it won't protect me
Don't want my dreams
Adding up to nothing
I was just looking for
Everybody's looking for something



LOVE PROFUSION
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

There are too many questions
There is not one solution
There is no resurrection
There is so much confusion
CHORUS:
And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know
And the love vibration
You make me feel
You make it shine...
There are too many options
There is no consolation
I have lost my illusions
What I want is an explanation
CHORUS:
And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know
And the love direction
You make me feel
You make me shine
You make me feel
You make me shine
You make me feel...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
There is no comprehension
There is real isolation
There is so much destruction
What I want is a celebration
And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can look so sad
Only you make me feel good
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
CHORUS:
And the love profusion
You make me feel
You make me know
And the love intention
You make me feel
You make me shine
You make me feel
You make me shine
You make me feel
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
I got you under my skin...
And I know I can feel bad
When I get in a bad mood
And the world can look so sad
Only you make me feel good...



NOBODY KNOWS ME
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

I've had so many lives
Since I was a child
And I realised
How many times I've died
I'm not that kind of guy
Sometimes I feel shy
I think I can fly
Closer to the sky
No one's telling you how to live your life
But it's a setup until you're fed up
This world is not so kind
People trap your mind
It's so hard to find
Someone to admire
I sleep much better at night
I feel closer to the light
Now I'm gonna try
To improve my life
No one's telling you how to live your life
But it's a setup until you're fed up
It's no good when you're misunderstood
But why should I care
What the world thinks of me
Won't let a stranger
Give me a social disease
CHORUS:
Nobody, nobody knows me
Nobody knows me
Nobody knows me
Like you know me
Nobody knows me
Nobody knows me
Nobody knows me
Like you know me...
No one's telling me how to live my life
But it's a setup, and I'm just fed up
It's no good when you're misunderstood
But why should I care
What the world thinks of me
Won't let a stranger
Give me a social disease
I don't want no lies
I don't watch TV
I don't waste my time
Won't read a magazine
I don't want no lies
I don't watch TV
I don't waste my time
Won't read a magazine
I sleep much better at night
I feel closer to the light
Now I'm gonna try
To improve my life
CHORUS:
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody knows me
Nobody knows me
Nobody knows me
Like you know me
Nobody knows me (It's no fun but the damage is done)
Nobody knows me
Nobody knows me (Don't want your social disease)
Like, like you know me
Like you know me
Like you know me
Like you know me (Don't want your social disease)
Like you know me
Nobody knows me (I don't want no lies)
Nobody knows me (I don't watch TV)
Nobody knows me (I don't waste my time)
Like you know me (Won't read a magazine)
Nobody knows me (I don't want no lies)
Nobody knows me (I don't watch TV)
Nobody knows me (I don't waste my time)
Like you know me (Won't read a magazine)
(Don't want your social disease)



NOTHING FAILS
Written by Madonna, Guy Sigsworth and Jem Griffiths

I'm in love with you
You silly thing
Anyone can see
What is it with you
You silly thing
Just take it from me
It was not a chance meeting
Feel my heart beating
You're the one
You could take all this
Take it away
I'd still have it all
Cause I've climbed the tree of life
And that is why
I'm no longer scared if I fall
When I get lost in space
I can return to this place
Cause you're the one
CHORUS:
Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails, you washed away my tears
Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails, nothing fails...
I'm not religious
But I feel so moved
Makes me want to pray
Pray you'll always be here
I'm not religious
But I feel such love
Makes me want to pray
When I get lost in space
I can return to this place
Cause you're the one
I'm not religious
But I feel so moved
I'm not religious
Makes me wanna pray
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel so moved (But I feel so moved)
Makes me wanna pray
Pray you'll always be here
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel such love
Makes me wanna pray
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel so moved (But it makes me wanna pray)
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
Makes me wanna pray (Makes me wanna pray)
I'm not religious
But I feel so moved (Makes me wanna pray)
I'm not religious
Makes me wanna pray (Makes me wanna)
Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails, you washed away my tears
Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails



INTERVENTION
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

I got to save my baby
Because he makes me cry
I got to make him happy
I got to teach him how to fly
I want to take him higher
Way up like a bird in the sky
I got to calm him down now
I want to save his life
CHORUS:
And I know that love will change us forever
And I know that love will keep us together
And I know, I know
There is nothing to fear
And I know that love
Will take us away from here...
Sometimes it's such a pleasure
Sometimes I wanna tear it all down
It's easy to be lazy
And hard to go away from the crowd
I know the road looks lonely
But that's just Satan's game
And either way my baby
We'll never be the same
CHORUS:
And I know that love will change us forever
And I know that love will keep us together
And I know, I know
There is nothing to fear
And I know that love
Will take us away from here...
In the blink of an eye everything could change
Say hello to your life now you're living
This is it from now on
It's a brand new day
It was time to wake up from this dream (from this dream)
I know the road looks lonely
But that's just Satan's game
And either way my baby
You'll never be the same
CHORUS:
And I know that love will change us forever
And I know that love will keep us together
And I know that love will change us forever
And I know that love will keep us together
And I know, I know
There is nothing to fear
And I know that love
Will take us away from here



X-STATIC PROCESS
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price

I'm not myself when you're around
I'm not myself standing in a crowd
I'm not myself and I don't know how
I'm not myself, myself right now
Jesus Christ will you look at me?
Don't know who I'm supposed to be
Don't really know if I should give a damn when you're around
I don't know who I am
I'm not myself when you go quiet
I'm not myself all alone at night
I'm not myself don't know who to call
I'm not myself at all
CHORUS:
Jesus Christ will you look at me?
Don't know who I'm supposed to be
Don't really know if I should give a damn when you're around
I don't know who I am
I always wished that I could find someone as beautiful as you
But in the process I forgot that I was special too...
I'm not myself when you're around
I'm not myself when you go quiet
I'm not myself all alone at night
I'm not myself standing in a crowd
I'm not myself and I don't know how
I'm not myself, myself right now
Don't know what I believe
CHORUS:
Jesus Christ will you look at me?
Don't know who I'm supposed to be
Don't really know (someone say) if I should give a damn when you're around
I don't know who I am
I always wished that I could find someone as beautiful as you
But in the process I forgot that I was special too...
I always wished that I could find someone as talented as you
But in the process I forgot
That I was just as good as you...



MOTHER AND FATHER
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

There was a time, I was happy in my life
There was a time, I believed I'd live forever
There was a time, that I prayed to Jesus Christ
There was a time, I had a mother
It was nice
Nobody else would ever take the place of you
Nobody else could do the things that you could do
No one else I guess could hurt me like you did
I didn't understand, I was just a kid
Oh mother, why aren't you here with me
No one else saw the things that you could see
I'm trying hard to dry my tears
Yes father, you know I'm not so free
CHORUS:
I got to give it up
Find someone to love me
I got to let it go
Find someone that I can care for
I got to give it up
Find someone to love me
I got to let it go
Find someone that I can care for...
There was a time, I was happy in my life
There was a time, I believed I'd live forever
There was a time, that I prayed to Jesus Christ
There was a time, I had a mother
It was nice
Oh mother, why aren't you here with me
No one else saw the things that you could see
I'm trying hard to dry my tears
Yes father, you know I'm not so free
CHORUS:
I got to give it up
Find someone to love me
I got to let it go
Find someone that I can care for
I got to give it up
Find someone to love me
I got to let it go
Find someone that I can care for...
My mother died when I was five
And all I did was sit and cry
I cried and cried and cried all day
Until the neighbors went away
They couldn't take my loneliness (I gotta give it up)
I couldn't take their phoniness (I gotta give it up)
My father had to go to work (I gotta give it up)
I used to think he was a jerk (I gotta give it up)
I didn't know his heart was broken
Not another word was spoken
He became a shadow of
The father I was dreaming of
I made a vow that I would never need
Another person ever
Turned my heart into a cage
A victim of a kind of rage
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I got to give it up
Find someone to love me
I got to let it go
Find someone that I can care for
I got to give it up
Find someone to love me
I got to let it go
Find someone that I can care for
Find someone that I can care for
Find someone that I can care for
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta let it go
I gotta give it up
Oh mother, oh father...
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up
I gotta give it up



DIE ANOTEHR DAY
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

I'm gonna wake up, yes and no
I'm gonna kiss, some part of
I'm gonna keep this secret
I'm gonna close my body now
CHORUS:
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day (another day)
I guess I'll die another day (another day)
I guess I'll die another day (another day)
I guess I'll die another day...
Sigmund Freud...
Analyze this...
Analyze this...
Analyze this, this, this,...
I'm gonna break the cycle
I'm gonna shake up the system
I'm gonna destroy my ego
I'm gonna close my body now
Uh! Uh!
I think I'll find another way
There's so much more to know
I guess I'll die another day
It's not my time to go
For every sin I'll have to pay
A time to work, a time to play
I think I'll find another way
It's not my time to go
I'm gonna avoid the cliché
I'm gonna suspend my senses
I'm gonna delay my pleasure
I'm gonna close my body now
CHORUS:
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I think I'll find another way
There's so much more to know
I guess I'll die another day
It's not my time to go...
Uh! Uh!
(I need to lay down)...
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
I guess I'll die another day
Another day, another day
Another day, another day
Another day, another day
Another day...



EASY RIDE
Written by Madonna and Monte Pittman

I want the good life
But I don't want an easy ride
What I want is to work for it
Feel the blood and sweat on my fingertips
That's what I want for me
I want to know everything
Maybe someday I will
What I want is to find my place
Breathe the air and feel the sun on my children's face
That's what I want
CHORUS:
I go round and round just like a circle
I can see a clearer picture
When I touch the ground I come full circle
To my place and I am home, I am home...
I want to let go of all disappointment
That's waiting for me
What I want is to live forever
Not defined by time and space
It's a lonely place that's what I want
CHORUS:
I go round and round just like a circle
I can see a clearer picture
When I touch the ground I come full circle
To my place and I am home, I am home
I go round and round just like a circle
I can see a clearer picture
When I touch the ground I come full circle
To my place and I am home, I am home
I go round and round just, round and round just...





MADONNA - CONFESSIONS ON A DANCE FLOOR ALBUM (2005)



HUNG UP
Written by Madonna, Stuart Price, B. Anderson and B. Ulvaeus

Time goes by so slowly (6x)
CHORUS:
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you...
Time goes by so slowly for those who wait
No time to hesitate
Those who run seem to have all the fun
I'm caught up
I don't know what to do...
Time goes by so slowly...
Time goes by so slowly...
Time goes by so slowly...
I don't know what to do...
CHORUS:
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you...
Ring ring ring goes the telephone
The lights are on but there's no-one home
Tick tick tock it's a quarter to two
And I'm done
I'm hanging up on you...
I can't keep on waiting for you...
I know that you're still hesitating...
Don't cry for me...
'Cause I'll find my way...
You'll wake up one day...
But it'll be too late...
CHORUS:
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
Every little thing, every little thing
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call, waiting for your call
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
Time goes by so slowly (4x)
So slowly (14x)
I don't know what to do
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
Every little thing that you say or do
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call
Baby night and day
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you
Every little thing, every little thing
I'm hung up
I'm hung up on you
Waiting for your call, waiting for your call
I'm fed up
I'm tired of waiting on you



GET TOGETHER
Written by Madonna, Anders Bagge, Peer Astrom and Stuart Price

It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion
It's all an illusion
There's too much confusion, confusion, confusion,...
Down, down, down in your heart
Find, find, find the secret
Turn, turn, turn your head around
Baby we can do it, we can do it all right
Do you believe in love at first sight?
It's an illusion, I don't care
Do you believe I can make you feel better?
Too much confusion, come on over here
CHORUS:
Can we get together?
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too...
I searched, I searched, I searched my whole life
To find, to find, to find the secret
And all I did was open up my eyes
Baby we can do it, we can do it all right
Do you believe that we can change the future?
Do you believe I can make you feel better?
CHORUS:
Can we get together?
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too
Can we get together?
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too...
It's all an illusion...
There's too much confusion...
I'll make you feel better...
If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end...
Do you believe in love at first sight?
It's an illusion, I don't care
Do you believe I can make you feel better?
Too much confusion, come on over here
CHORUS:
Can we get together?
I really, I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you, I hope you feel the same way too
Can we get together?
I really wanna be with you
Come on, check it out with me
I hope you feel the same way too
It's all an illusion...
There's too much confusion...
I'll make you feel better...
If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end...

And I can take care of myself
I don't wanna hear, I don't wanna know
Please don't say 'forgive me'
I've seen it all before
And I can't take it anymore...

Save your words because you've gone too far
I listened to your lies and all your stories (listen to your stories)
You're not half the man you'd like to be

FUTURE LOVERS
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï

I'm gonna tell you about love
Let's forget your life
Forget your problems
Administration, bills, and loans
Come with me...
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the demonstration of this evidence
Some have called it religion
This is not a coincidence
Would you like to try?...
Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride
Their ambitions high
Would you like to try?
Let me be your guide
Put aside your pride
Future lovers hide
Love inside their eyes
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
Not controlled by time
Future lovers shine
For eternity
In a world that's free
Put away your past
Love will never last
If you're holding on
To a dream that's gone
I'm gonna tell you about love
Would you like to try?
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance
There's no love like the future love
Come with me
Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride
Their ambitions high
Would you like to try?
Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride
(In the evidence of its brilliance,
in the evidence of its brilliance)
There ambitions high
Would you like to try?
(In the evidence of its brilliance,
in the evidence of its brilliance)
Connect to the sky
Future lovers ride
(In the evidence of its brilliance,
in the evidence of its brilliance)
Their ambitions high
Would you like to try?
(In the evidence of its brilliance,
in the evidence of its brilliance)
Brilliance
Brilliance
Brilliance
Brilliance
In the evidence of its brilliance...



I LOVE NEW YORK
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price

I don't like cities, but I like New York
Other places make me feel like a dork
Los Angeles is for people who sleep
Paris and London, baby you can keep
Baby you can keep (8x)
CHORUS:
Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad
Except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York...
If you don't like my attitude, then you can F-off
Just go to Texas, isn't that where they golf?
New York is not for little pussies who scream
If you can't stand the heat, then get off my street
Get off my street (8x)
CHORUS:
Other cities always make me mad
Other places always make me sad
No other city ever made me glad
Except New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York
I love New York (Get off my street, get off my street) (4x)
(Get off my street) (10x)




LET IT WILL BE
Written by Madonna, Mirwais Ahmadzaï and Stuart Price

Now I can tell you about success, about fame
About the rise and the fall of all the stars in the sky
Don't it make you smile?
Let it will be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be
Now I can tell you about the place I belong
You know it won't last long
And all those lights they will turn down
Let it will be
Oh let it be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be
Now I can see things for what they really are
I guess I'm not that far
I'm at the point of no return
Just watch me burn
Let it will be
Just let it be
Oh let it be
Let it will be
(Just let it be)
Just let it be
(Let it will be)
Oh let it be
(Got to let it be)
Oh let it be
(Won't you let it be)
Now I can tell you the place that I belong
It won't last long
The lights, they will turn down
Oh let it be
Oh let it be
Oh let it be
(Won't you let it be)
Oh let it be
(You've got to let it be)
Just let it be
(Anyone can see)
Won't you let it be
(Let it will be)
Just watch me burn
Oh let it be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be
Won't you let it be
(Just let it be)
Oh let it be
(Let it will be)
Just let it be
(Got to let it be)
Won't you let it be
(Won't you let it be)
Won't you let it be
Now I can tell you, tell you, tell you,...
(Won't you let it be, Just let it be)
About success, about fame
About fame, about fame, about fame
Won't you let it be
Oh let It be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be...



FORBIDDEN LOVE
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price

Just one kiss on my lips
Was all it took to seal the future
Just one look from your eyes
Was like a certain kind of torture
Once upon a time
There was a boy and there was a girl
Just one touch from your hands
Was all it took to make me falter
CHORUS:
Forbidden love, are we supposed to be together?
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Forbidden love, we seal our destiny forever
Forbidden love, forbidden love...
Just one smile on your face
Was all it took to change my fortune
Just one word from your mouth
Was all I needed to be certain
Once upon a time
There was a boy and there was a girl
Hearts that intertwine
They lived in a different kind of world
CHORUS:
Forbidden love, are we supposed to be together?
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Forbidden love, we seal our destiny forever
Forbidden love, forbidden love...
Just one kiss, just one touch, just one look
(Five, four, three, two, one)
CHORUS:
Forbidden love, are we supposed to be together?
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Forbidden love, we seal our destiny forever
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Forbidden love, are we supposed to be together?
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Forbidden love, we seal our destiny forever
Forbidden love, forbidden love
Just one kiss, just one touch, just one look, just one love
(Five, four, three, two, one)




JUMP
Written by Madonna, Joe Henry and Stuart Price

There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that I wait, the more time that I waste
I haven't got much time to waste
It's time to make my way
I'm not afraid of what I'll face
But I'm afraid to stay
I'm going down my own road
And I can make it alone
I'll work and I'll fight
Till I find a place of my own
CHORUS:
Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to jump...
We learned our lesson from the start, my sisters and me
The only thing you can depend on is your family
And life's gonna drop you down like the limbs of a tree
It sways and it swings and it bends until it makes you see
CHORUS:
Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to, are you ready...
There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that you wait, the more time that you waste
I'll work and I'll fight till I find a place of my own
It sways and it swings and it bends until you make it your own
I can make it alone (7x)
(My sisters and me, my sisters and me)
CHORUS:
Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to jump
Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to, are you ready...



HOW HIGH
Written by Madonna, Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg and Henrik Jonback

How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
It's funny
I spent my whole life wanting to be talked about
I did it
Just about everything to see my name in lights
Was it all worth it
And how did I earn it
Nobody's perfect
I guess I deserve it
CHORUS:
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
Does this get any better?
Should I carry on?
Will it matter when I'm gone?
Will any of this matter?
It's funny
How everybody mentions my name
They're never very nice
I took it
Just about everything except my own advice
Was it all worth it
And how did I earn it
Nobody's perfect
I guess I deserve it
CHORUS:
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
(Nothing lasts forever)
Does this get any better?
Should I carry on?
Will it matter when I'm gone?
(Does it make a difference)
Will any of this matter?
How high, does it make a difference?
Nothing lasts forever
Should I, will it matter when I'm gone?
Will any of this matter?
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
Should I carry on?
Will it matter when I'm gone?
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
Does this get any better?
Should I carry on?
Will it matter when I'm gone?
Will any of this matter?
How high are the stakes?
(How high, does it make a difference)
Nothing lasts forever
Does this get any better?
Should I carry on?
(Should I, will it matter when I'm gone)
Does it make a difference?
Will any of this matter?
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
Should I carry on?
Will it matter when I'm gone?
How high are the stakes?
How much fortune can you make?
Should I carry on?
Will it matter when I'm gone?...

Open up my heart

Bring the heaven and the stars
Down to earth for me

If they don't stop, you know
The gates of heaven are always open
And there's this God in the sky and the angels
How they sit, you know, in front of the light
And that's what it's about...




PUSH
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price

You push me to go the extra mile
You push me when it's difficult to smile
You push me, a better version of myself
You push me, only you and no one else
You push me, see the other point of view
You push me when there's nothing else to do
You push me when I think I know it all
You push me when I stumble and I fall
Keep on pushin' like nobody
CHORUS:
Every race I win, every mood I'm in
Everything I do, I owe it all to you
Every move I make, every step I take
Every thing I know, it's all because you push me...
You push me when I don't appreciate
You push me not to lie and not to hate
You push me when I want it all to end
You push me when I really need a friend
You push me, all I wanna do is cry
You push me when it's time for me to try
You push me when I do it for myself
You push me, only you and no one else
Keep on pushin' like nobody
CHORUS:
Every race I win, every mood I'm in
Everything I do, I owe it all to you
Every move I make, every step I take
Every thing I do, it's all because you push me...
You push me...
Keep on pushin' like nobody...
Keep on, keep on...
Every race I win (to go the extra mile)
Every mood I'm in (when it's difficult to smile)
Everything I do (a better version of myself)
Only you and only you and only you
Every move I make (see the other point of view)
Every step I take (when there's nothing else to do)
Every thing I do (when I think I know it all)
Only you and only you and only you
Every race I win (to go the extra mile)
Every mood I'm in (when it's difficult to smile)
Everything I do (a better version of myself)
I owe it all to you (only you and only you and only you)
Every move I make (see the other point of view)
Every step I take (when there's nothing else to do)
Every thing I know (when I think I know it all)
It's all because you push me
You push me...




LIKE IT OR NOT
Written by Madonna, Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg and Henrik Jonback

You can call me a sinner
And you can call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain't
Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt
I'll be the garden, you'll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because
CHORUS:
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no...
Cleopatra had her way
Mata Hari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you
Life is a paradox
And it doesn't make much sense
Can't have femme without the fatale
Please don't take offense
Don't let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let's drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because
CHORUS:
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know...
No no, you know...
No no, you know...
No no, you know...
No no, you know...
I'll be the garden, you'll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because
CHORUS:
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I'm never gonna stop, no no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know...

GIVE IT 2 ME
Written by Pharrell Williams and Madonna

What are you waiting for?
Nobody's gonna show you how
Why work for someone else
To do what you can do right now?
Got no boundaries and no limits
If there's excitement, put me in it
If it's against the law, arrest me
If you can handle it, undress me
Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath
I can go on and on and on
When the lights go down and there's no one left
I can go on and on and on
CHORUS:
Give it to me, yeah
No one's gonna show me how
Give it to me, yeah
No one's gonna stop me, now...
They say that a good thing never lasts
And then it has to fall
Those are the people that did not
Amount to much at all
Give me the bassline and I'll shake it
Give me a record and I'll break it
There's no beginning and no ending
Give me a chance to go and I'll take it
Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath
I can go on and on and on
When the lights go down and there's no one left
I can go on and on and on
CHORUS:
Give it to me, yeah
No one's gonna show me how
Give it to me, yeah
No one's gonna stop me, now...

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it
Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it
(To the left, to the right, to the left, to the right)
Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it
(To the left, to the right, to the left, to the right)
Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it
(To the left, left, right, right, left, left, right, right)
Get stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid...
(Left, left, right, right, left, left, right, right)
Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath

HEARTBEAT
Written by Pharrell Williams and Madonna

On any given night
Catch me on the floor
Working up a sweat
That's what music's for
I'd rather not explain
For me, it's just usual
(You can catch me pop it now, drop it now, ain't no stopping now, are you watching now?)
Once I get going I am gone
(You can catch me pop it now, drop it now, ain't no stopping now, are you watching now?)
I'll keep it going all night long
CHORUS:
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
It may feel old to you, but to me it feels new
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
Don't you know, can't you see?
When I dance, I feel free
Which makes me feel like the only one (The only one)
That the light shines on...
(Hey)
This complicated life
I try to do my best
I always tell myself
It's all just a test
For me it's an escape
'Cause dancing make me feel beautiful
(Come on)
(And I can't pretend, it should never end, let the music play, are you watching now?)
Once I am moving, I'm alright
(So right, so right, right)
(You can catch me pop it now, it should never end, let the music play, 'cause I'm here to stay)
I'll keep on dancing through the night
CHORUS:
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
It may feel old to you, but to me it feels new
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
Don't you know, can't you see?
When I dance, I feel free
Which makes me feel like the only one (The only one)
(The only one, the only one)
That the light shines on
(Hey)
See my booty get down like (Uh)
See my booty get down like (C'mon uh)
See my booty get down like (Lower uh)
See my booty get down like (Lil' bit lower baby uh)
Uh get down (Uh)
Uh uh, get down (C'mon, uh)
See my booty get down like...
You probably think I'm crazy
I don't want you to save me (Dance)
Don't mean to disappoint you
I've never felt so free
If you could stand in my shoes
Then you would feel my heartbeat too
(You can catch me pop it now, drop it now, ain't no stopping now, are you watching now?)
Once I am moving, I'm alright
(So right, so right, right)
(You can catch me pop it now, drop it now, ain't no stopping now, are you watching now?)
I can keep on going through the night
CHORUS:
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
It may feel old to you, but to me it feels new
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
Don't you know, can't you see?
When I dance, I feel free
Which makes me feel it in my heartbeat
(The only one, the only one)
It may feel old to you, but to me it feels new
You know I feel it in my heartbeat
Don't you know, can't you see?
When I dance, I feel free
Which makes me feel like the only one (The only one)
(The only one, the only one)
That the light shines on
(Girl)
M-dolla, M-dolla

MILES AWAY
Written by Madonna, T. Mosley, J. Timberlake and N. Hills

I just woke up from a fuzzy dream
You never would believe the things that I have seen
I looked in the mirror and I saw your face
You looked right through me, you were miles away
All my dreams, they fade away
I'll never be the same
If you could see me the way you see yourself
I can't pretend to be someone else
CHORUS:
You always love me more, miles away
I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away
You're not afraid to tell me, miles away
I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
When no one's around and I have you here
I begin to see the picture, it becomes so clear
You always have the biggest heart
When we're 6,000 miles apart
Too much of no sound
Uncomfortable silence can be so loud
Those three words are never enough
When it's long distance love
CHORUS:
You always love me more, miles away
I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away
You're not afraid to tell me, miles away
I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
I'm alright
Don't be sorry, but it's true
When I'm gone, you realize
That I'm the best thing that happened to you
CHORUS:
You always love me more, miles away
I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away
You're not afraid to tell me, miles away
I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away
You always love me more, miles away
I hear it in your voice, when you're miles away
You're not afraid to tell me, miles away
I guess we're at our best, when we're miles away
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...
So far away, so far away, so far away, so far away...



SHE'S NOT ME
Written by Pharrell Williams and Madonna

I should have seen the sign way back then
When she told me that you were her best friend
And now she's rolling, rolling, rolling
And you were stolen, stolen, stolen
She started dressing like me and talking like me
It freaked me out
She started calling you up in the middle of the night
What's that about?
I just want to be there when you discover
You wake up in the morning next to your new lover
She might cook you breakfast and love you in the shower
The flavor of the moment, 'cause she don't have what's ours
CHORUS:
She's not me
She doesn't have my name
She'll never have what I have
It won't be the same
It won't be the same...
I should have seen the sign when you were here
Under a different light, it's all so clear
She was stealing, stealing, stealing
And now you're feeling, feeling, feeling
She started dyeing her hair and
Wearing the same perfume as me
She started reading my books
And stealing my looks and lingerie
I just want to be there when you discover
You wake up in the morning next to your new lover
She might make you breakfast and love you in the shower
The thrill is momentary, 'cause she don't have what's ours
CHORUS:
She's not me
She doesn't have my name
She'll never have what I have
It won't be the same
It won't be the same...
She is licking her lips
And she's batting her eyes
She's not me
She's got legs up to there
And such beautiful hair
She's not me
Oh, devoted for life
Make a beautiful wife
She's not me
If you spend some more time
I guarantee you will find
She's not me
I know I can do it better
If someone wants to pimp your style
And hang with you a little while
And make up for all the things you lack
You're gonna have to watch your back
CHORUS:
She's not me
She doesn't have my name
She'll never have what I have
It won't be the same
It won't be the same
Never let you forget
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be
Never let you forget
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be
(Pharrell:)
Gotta find a new way to show your feelings
I guess it was some bullshit saying you love me, love me
Guess my expectation hit the ceiling
When you come back it could cost us trust, trust me
Wendy!
She's not me
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be
She's not me
She's not me
She's not me, and she never will be
She never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
She's not me, and she never will be
Never will be
Never will be
Never will be
She's not me
Never will be
Never will be
She's not me, and she never will be
She never will be...



INCREDIBLE
Written by Pharrell Williams and Madonna

CHORUS:
Just one of those things
When everything goes incredible
And all is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
And one of those things
That used to get you down
Now have no effect at all
'Cause life is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)...
Remembering the very first time
You caught that someone special's eye
And all of your care dropped
And all of the world just stopped
(I hope) I want to go back to then
Got to figure out how, got to remember when
I felt it, it thrilled me
I want it, to fill me
CHORUS:
Just one of those things
When everything goes incredible
And all is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
And one of those things
That used to get you down
Now have no effect at all
'Cause life is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)...
You don't know what you got 'til it's gone
And everything in life just goes wrong
Feels like nobody's listening
And something is missing
(I hope) I want to go back to then
Got to figure out how, got to remember when
I felt it, it thrilled me
I want it, to fill me
CHORUS:
Just one of those things
When everything goes incredible
And all is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
And one of those things
That used to get you down
Now have no effect at all
'Cause life is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)...
I remember when
You were the one
You were my friend
You gave me life
You were the sun
You taught me things
I didn't run
I fell to my knees
I didn't know why
I started to breathe
I wanted to cry
I need a reminder
So I can relate
I need to go back there
Before it's too late...
It's time to get your hands up
It's time to get your body moving
It's time to get your hands up
It's time to get your body moving
It's time to get your hands up
It's time to get your body moving
It's time to get your hands up
It's time to get your body moving
CHORUS:
Just one of those things
When everything goes incredible
And all is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
And one of those things
That used to get you down
Now have no effect at all
'Cause life is beautiful
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)
(Can't get my head around it, I need to think about it)...
Incredible...
Let's finish what we've started

DEVIL WOULDN'T RECOGNIZE YOU
Written by Madonna, T. Mosley, J. Timberlake, N. Hills and J. Henry

It's quiet as it is tonight
You almost think you were safe
Your eyes are full of surprises
They cannot predict my fate
Waiting underneath the stars
There's something you should know
The angels they surround my heart
Telling me to let you go
CHORUS:
I barely couldn't
I barely couldn't recognize
But I played right into it
Who am I to criticize
Somehow I'll get through it
And you won't even realize
Falling through your own disguise
It's like over and over
You're pushing me right down to the floor
I should just walk away
Over and over I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that it's over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I see behind your eyes
Now I'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
I do, I do...
You almost fooled yourself this time
Let all the saints be praised
You hide your sadness behind your smile
And you keep your lost heart braced
The steps that edge along the ledge
Is much higher than it seems
But I've been on that ledge before
You can't hide yourself from me
CHORUS:
I barely couldn't
I barely couldn't recognize
I still played right into it
Who am I to criticize
Somehow I'll get through it
And you won't even realize
Falling through your own disguise
It's like over and over
You're pushing me right down to the floor
I should just walk away
Over and over I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that it's over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I see behind your eyes
Now I'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, but I do
I do, I do
It's like over and over
You're pushing me right down to the floor
I should just walk away
Over and over I keep on coming back for more
I play into your fantasy
Now that it's over
You can lie to me right through your smile
I see behind your eyes
Now I'm sober, no more intoxicating my mind
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you, you, you, you
Devil wouldn't recognize you, you, you, you
Devil wouldn't recognize you, you, you
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
I do, I, I do
You, you, you, you, devil wouldn't recognize you
Recognize you, you, you
I do
Even the devil wouldn't recognize you
I, I, I, I, I, I do...



VOICES
Written by Madonna, T. Mosley, J. Timberlake, N. Hills and H. Lane

Justin Timberlake:
Who is the master? Who is the slave?
Madonna:
Treat me like a curse
Then tell me I'm your saviour
I'm living with the stranger
I used to know so well
Waiting for your answer
Is a kind of torture
Could I grow accustomed to this kind of hell?
Are you walking the dog, 'cause that dog isn't new?
Are you out of control, is that dog walking you?
Haven't you had enough, now your time is up
Baby show me your hand
CHORUS:
Voices start to ring in your head
Tell me what do they say?
Distant echoes from another time
Start to creep in your brain
So you claim madness like it's convenient
You do it so often that you start to believe it
You have demons so nobody can blame you
But who is the master and who is the slave?...
First you say you love me
Then you wanna leave me
Then you say you're sorry
You play the game so well
I bought your illusion
You're the greatest salesman
How could I refuse you when you sold it to yourself?
Are you walking the dog, 'cause that dog isn't new?
Are you out of control, is that dog walking you?
Haven't you had enough, now your time is up
Baby show me your hand
CHORUS:
Voices start to ring in your head
Tell me what do they say?
Distant echoes from another time
Start to creep in your brain
So you claim madness like it's convenient
You do it so often that you start to believe it
You have demons so nobody can blame you
But who is the master and who is the slave?...



MADONNA - HARD CANDY ALBUM JAPANESE EDITION (2008)

RING MY BELL
Written by Pharrell Williams and Madonna

If you wanna talk to me
That's exactly what you're gonna have to do
Talk to me...
When we first met you had a lot to give
I said, "If I was in your shoes I could not lose"
But now baby I just don't know
I'm so confused, all this abuse is strange
‘cause you don't act like my friend and
I can't pretend I don't want this to end
My daddy said
My momma said
My sisters say
My heart says
CHORUS:
Lose your attitude
Ring my bell
Say you're sorry
Ring my bell
Got something for me
Ring my bell
Then you can ring my bell
Show some gratitude
Ring my bell
Something nice to say
Ring my bell
You appreciate
Ring my bell
Then you can ring my bell
You, you really have some nerve (get it)
Playing stupid games, calling me names
And now you ought to eat those words
Once you attack you can't take it back, it's strange
I guess off your high horse you're falling
You're calling and calling
I don't understand at all (c'mon)
My daddy said (what?)
My momma said (huh?)
My sisters say (wha'd' they say?)
My heart says
CHORUS:
Lose your attitude
Ring my bell
Say you're sorry
Ring my bell
Got something for me
Ring my bell
Then you can ring my bell
Show some gratitude
Ring my bell
Something nice to say
Ring my bell
You appreciate
Ring my bell
Then you can ring my bell
Ring my, ring my bell
You can't
Ring my, ring my bell
You can't
Ring my, ring my bell
My bell
Ring my bell
When you look in the mirror 'don't know what you see
Life's not the same until you're in pain
I know it's just no good to hate
I don't want to say it might be too late for you
I'm not answering your phone call
Babe if you want more you come to my front door (c'mon)
My daddy said (what?)
My momma said (huh?)
My sisters say (wha'd' they say?)
My heart says
CHORUS:
Lose your attitude
Ring my bell
Say you're sorry
Ring my bell
Got something for me
Ring my bell
Then you can ring my bell
Show some gratitude
Ring my bell
Something nice to say
Ring my bell
You appreciate
Ring my bell
Then you can ring my bell

CELEBRATION
Written by Madonna, Paul Oakenfold, Ian Green and Ciaran Gribbin

I think you wanna come over
Yeah I heard it through the grapevine
Are you drunk or you sober
Think about it, doesn't matter
And if it makes you feel good then I say do it
I don't know what you're waiting for
Feel my temperature rising
There's too much heat I'm gonna lose control
Do you want to go higher, get closer to the fire
I don't know what you're waiting for
CHORUS:
Come join the party, yeah
'Cause everybody just won't do
Let's get this started, yeah
'Cause everybody wants to party with you...
Boy you got a reputation
But you're gonna have to prove it
I see a little hesitation
Am I gonna have to show you
That if it feels right, get on your marks
Step to the beat boy that's what it's for
Put your arms around me
When it gets too hot we can go outside
But for now just come here, let me whisper in your ear
An invitation to the dance of life
CHORUS:
Come join the party, it's a celebration
'Cause anybody just won't do
Let's get this started, no more hesitation
'Cause everybody wants to party with you..
Haven't I seen you somewhere before...
You look familiar...
You wanna dance, yeah...
I guess I just don't recognize you with your clothes on...
What are you waiting for?...
CHORUS:
Come join the party, it's a celebration

GIRL GONE WILD
Written by Madonna, Jenson Vaughan, Alessandro "Alle" Benassi and Marco "Benny" Benassi

Oh my God
I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee
And I detest all my sins
Because I dread the loss of heaven
And the pain of hell
But most of all because I love Thee
And I want so badly to be good...
It's so hypnotic
The way he pulls on me
It's like the force of gravity
Right up under my feet
It's so erotic
This feeling can't be beat
It's coursing through my whole body
Feel the heat
I got that burning hot desire
And no one can put out my fire
It's coming right down through the wire
Here it comes
When I hear them 808 drums
It's got me singin'
CHORUS:
Hey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like hey-ey-e
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like a smokin' gun
On the floor till the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun
I'm like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild...
The room is spinnin'
It must be the tanqueray
I'm about to go astray
My inhibition's gone away
I feel like sinnin'
You got me in the zone
DJ play my favourite song
Turn me on
I got that burning hot desire
And no one can put out my fire
It's coming right down through the wire
Here it comes
When I hear them 808 drums
It's got me singin'
CHORUS:
Hey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like hey-ey-e
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like a smokin' gun
On the floor till the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun...
I know, I know, I know, I shouldn't act this way
I know, I know, I know, good girls don't misbehave...misbehave
But I'm a bad girl anyway...
Forgive me...
CHORUS:
Hey-ey-ey, hey-ey-ey-ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like hey-ey-e
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like a smokin' gun
On the floor till the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun
I'm like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild...



GANG BANG
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Priscilla Hamilton, Keith Harris, Jean-Baptiste, Mika, Don Juan Demarco "Demo" Casanova and Stephen Kozmeniuk

Like a bitch out of order
Like a bat out of hell
Like a fish out of water
I'm scared, can't you tell
Bang bang
Bang bang
I thought you were good
But you painted me bad
Compared to the others
You're the best thing I had
Bang bang, shot you dead
Bang bang, shot you dead
I thought it was you, and I loved you the most
But I was just keeping my enemies closest
I made a decision, I would never look back
So how did you end up with all of my jack
Bang bang, shot you dead
Bang bang, shot you dead (in the head)
Bitch out of order
Bat out of hell
Fish out of water
I'm scared, can't you tell
Bang bang, shot you dead
Bang bang, shot you dead
I made a decision, I would never look back
So how did you end up with all of my jack
Bang bang, shot you dead
Bang bang, shot you dead
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
Bang bang, shot you dead
And I have no regret
Bang bang (shot you dead, in the head)
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
And then I discovered
It couldn't get worse
You were building my coffin
You were driving my hearse
Bang bang, shot you dead
Bang bang, in the head
I thought it was you and I loved you the most
But I was just keeping my enemies closest
I made a decision I would never look back
So how did you end up with all of my jack
Bang bang, shot you dead (in the head)
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
Bang bang, shot you dead
And I have no regret
Bang bang (shot you dead, in the head)
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
I need you to die for me baby
You have to die for me baby
That's right, you have to die for me baby
How could I move on with my life
If you didn't die for me baby
If you didn't die for me baby
I need you to die for me baby
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
Bang bang, shot you dead
Shot my lover in the head
Now my lover is dead
And I have no regrets
He deserved it
And I'm going straight to hell
And I got a lot of friends there
And if I see that bitch in hell
I'm gonna shoot him in the head again
'Cause I wanna see him die
Over and over and over and over and
Over and over and over and over
Now drive bitch
I said, drive bitch
And while you're at it, die bitch
That's right, drive bitch
Now drive, bitch
I said drive, bitch
And while you're at it, die, bitch
That's right, drive, bitch
Now if you're gonna act like a bitch
Then you're gonna die like a bitch!



I'M ADDICTED
Written by Madonna, Alessandro "Alle" Benassi and Marco "Benny" Benassi

When did your name
Change from a word to a charm?
No other sound makes the hairs stand up
On the back of my arm
All of the letters push to the front of my mouth
And saying your name is somewhere
Between a prayer and a shout
And I can't get it out
When did your name
Change from language to magic?
I write it again on the back of my hand
And I know it sounds tragic
Your name's like a drug
And I can't get enough
And it fits like a glove
I'm addicted to your love (I'm addicted to your love)
I'm addicted to your love
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to your
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to your love
Now that your name
Pumps like the blood in my veins
Pulse through my body igniting my mind
It's like MDMA and that's OK
Your name's like a drug
And I can't get enough
And it fits like a glove
I'm addicted to your love
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to your
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to your love
I need this exchange
I don't care if you think that I'm strange
Something happens to me when I hear your voice
Something happens to me and I have no choice
I need to hear your name
Everything feels so strange
I'm willing to take this chance
I need to dance
Your name's like a drug
And I can't get enough
And it fits like a glove
I'm addicted to your love
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to your
I'm addicted
I'm addicted
I'm addicted to your love
MDMA, MDMA, MDMA, MDMA (I'm addicted...)
MDMA, MDMA, MDMA, MDMA
MDMA, MDMA, MDMA, MDMA (I'm addicted...)
MDMA, MDMA, MDMA, MDMA
MDMA, MDMA, MDMA, MDMA (I'm addicted...)



TURN UP THE RADIO
Written by Madonna, Martin Solveig, Michael Tordjman and Jade Williams

When the world starts to get you down
And nothing seems to go your way
And the noise of the maddening crowd
Makes you feel like you're going to go insane
There's a glow of a distant light
Calling you to come outside
To feel the wind in your face and your skin
And it's here I begin my story
CHORUS:
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio...
It was time that I opened my eyes
I'm leaving the past behind
Nothing's ever what it seems
Including this time and this crazy dream
I'm stuck like moth to a flame
I'm so tired of playing this game
I don't know how I got to this stage
Let me out of my cage cause I'm dying
CHORUS:
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio...
I just wanna get in my car
I wanna go fast and I gotta go far
Don't ask me to explain how I feel
'Cause I don't want to say where I'm going
Turn down the noise and turn up the volume
Don't have a choice cause the temperature's pounding
If leaving this place is the last thing I do
Then I want to escape with a person just like you
Buzzing around like a moth to a flame
I'm so sick and tired of playing this game
We gotta have fun if that's all that we do
Gotta shake up the system and break all the rules
Gotta turn up the radio until the speakers blow
CHORUS:
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Don't ask me where I wanna go
We gotta turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
There's some things you don't need to know
Just let me turn up the radio
Turn up the radio
Just let me turn up the radio
Just let me turn up the radio...

I see you coming
And you're gonna have to change the game...
(Y-O-U You wanna)
Would you like to try?
Give me a reason why
Give me all that you got
Maybe you'll do fine

'Cause I'm a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You've gotta step into my world
CHORUS:
Give me all your luvin', give me your luv
Give me all your luv today
Give me all your luvin', give me your luv
Let's forget about time
And dance our lives away...

Keep trying, don't give up
It's if you want it bad enough...
(L-U-V Madonna)
It's right in front of you
Now tell me what you're thinking of...
(Y-O-U You wanna)
In another place, at a different time
You can be my lucky star

Let's drink the bottle every drop
Don't play the stupid game
'Cause I'm a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You've gotta step into my world
CHORUS:
Give me all your luvin', give me your luv

Give me all your luv boy
You can be my boy, you can be my boy toy
In the nick of time
I can say I'm sick of rhyme
'Cause it's time for change
Like a nickel or a dime
(Give me all your luv)
I'm roaming
I'm a barbarian, I'm Conan
You were sleepin' on me, you was dozin'
Now move, I'm goin' in...
You have all the L-U-V
I gave you everything you need (Now move)
Now it's up to Y-O-U
Are you the one, shall we proceed?

No one gets you this
Supersonic, bionic, uranium hits
So I break 'em off, tricks
Let's pray that it sticks
Imma say this once

Don't play the stupid game
'Cause I'm a different kind of girl
Every record sounds the same
You've got to step into my world
Give me all your luvin', give me your luv
(L-U-V Madonna)
Give me all your luvin', give me your luv

Give me all your luvin', give me your luv
Give me all your luv today
Give me all your luvin', give me your luv
Let's forget about time
And dance our lives away...



SOME GIRLS

Some girls can do anything
Whole world hanging on a string

Some girls got an attitude
Fake tits and a nasty mood
Hot chick when she's in the nude
(In the naughty naked nude)
Some girls got a sexy slur (slur)
One drink and it's all a blur (blur)
Cash now if you wanna flirt
(Cash or credit, it's gonna hurt)
Some girls going off the deep end (deep end)
Some girls livin' for the weekend (weekend)
Some girls like to get their freak on (freaky, gettin' freaky)
Some girls make a scene
Shoot their mouths and talk obscene
Crying in the limousine
(Crying in the limousine)
Some girls make you feel
Like a rocket, hard as steel
Some girls only ever like to tease
(Some girls only like to tease)
CHORUS:
Some girls are not like me
I'm everything you ever dreamed of
I got you begging 'baby please'
I got you begging 'baby please'...
Some girls want to call the shots

(Spot spot sp spot sp spot sp eeeee)
Some girls have a filthy mouth
All talk and they never stop
Just take and it's not enough
(Too much is never enough)

I'm everything you ever dreamed of (your worst nightmare)
I got you begging 'baby please'
I got you begging 'baby please'...
(A wet dream, wet dream, wet dream, ...)
(Are you big and hard enough?)
Wrap you arms around my neck
It's time to deal so cut the deck
If you wanna play this game with me
I'm not like all the rest
Some girls are second best
Put you lovin' to the test you'll see...
Some girls are not like me
I never wanna be like some girls
Some girls are just for free
I never wanna be like some girls
CHORUS:
Some girls are not like me
I'm everything you ever dreamed of
I got you begging 'baby please'

I DON'T GIVE A (feat. Nicki Minaj)
Written by Madonna, Martin Solveig, Nicki Minaj and Julien Jabre

I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
Wake up ex-wife
This is your life
Children on your own
Turning on the telephone
Messengers, manager
No time for a manicure
Working out, shake my ass
I know how to multi-task
Connecting to the Wi-Fi
Went from nerd to superb
Have you seen the new guy
I forgot the password
Gotta call the babysitter
Tweetin' on the elevator
I could take a helicopter
I don't even feel the pressure
CHORUS:
I'm gonna be OK
I don't care what the people say
I'm gonna be alright
Gonna live fast and I'm gonna live right
I'm moving fast, can you follow my track
I'm moving fast and I like it like that
I do ten things all at once
And if you have a problem
I don't give a...
You were so mad at me
Who's got custody
Lawyers suck it up
Didn't have a pre-nup
Make a film, write a song
Gotta get my stockings on
Meet the press, buy the dress
All of this to impress
Ride my horse, break some bones
Take it down a semitone
I forgot to say my prayers
Baby Jesus on the stairs
Gotta sign a contract
Gotta get my money back
All the biters have to go
Standing in the front row
CHORUS:
I'm gonna be OK
I don't care what the people say
I'm gonna be alright
Gonna live fast and I'm gonna live right
I'm moving fast, can you follow my track
I'm moving fast and I like it like that
I do ten things all at once
And if you have a problem
I don't give a...
I tried to be a good girl
I tried to be your wife
Diminished myself
And I swallowed my light
I tried to become all
That you expect of me
And if it was a failure
I don't give a...
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
Nicki Minaj:
Shots fire, anything you hear Nicki on that's fire
You don't hear them bums on nothin' that's fire
Tell 'em catch fire
In the Bugatti, ten grand 1 tire
Aye yo Madonna, I say you original: Don Dada
In that, yeah Gabbana, and the, ah yeah, Prada
We Material Girls: ain't nobody hotter, pops collar
See I really can't relate to your Volvo
And you can't get these shoes at the Aldo
When I let a dude go, that's his loss
I was cutting them checks, I was his boss
Yo, I don't give a F
Curse nor bless you, never let 'em stress you
I ain't a businesswoman, I'm a business, woman
And I'm known for giving bitches the business, woman...
CHORUS:
I'm gonna be OK
I don't care what the people say
I'm gonna be alright
Gonna live fast and I'm gonna live right
I'm moving fast, can you follow my track
I'm moving fast and I like it like that
I do ten things all at once
And if you have a problem
I don't give a...
Nicki Minaj:
There's only one queen, and that's Madonna
Bitch!
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u
I don't give a fu-u-u-u...



I'M A SINNER
Written by Madonna, William Orbit and Jean-Baptiste

Like the sun, like the light, like a flame
Like a storm, I burn through everything
Like a bomb in the night, like a train
Thundering through the hills, let it rain
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
CHORUS:
All the boys, all the boys and girls
Wanna be like us tonight
All the boys, all the boys and girls
Ride the magic bus tonight
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way...
Like a moon with no light of my own
Surfs the sky for a place to call home
I woke up with my head in the fire
Get my kicks when I'm walking the wire
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
CHORUS:
All the boys, all the boys and girls
Wanna be like us tonight
All the boys, all the boys and girls
Ride the magic bus tonight
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner...
Praise the lord, I like it that way
Hail Mary, full of grace
Get down on your knees and pray
Jesus Christ hanging on the cross
Died for our sins, it's such a loss
Saint Christopher, find my way
I'll be coming home one day
Saint Sebastian, don't you cry
Let those poison arrows fly
Saint Anthony, lost and found
Thomas Aquinas, stand your ground
All the Saints and Holy Men
Catch me before I sin again
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
You're a sinner, you're a sinner
You're a sinner, you like it that way
We're all sinners, we're all sinners
We're all sinners
I'm a sinner, I'm a sinner
I'm a sinner, I like it that way
Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
(Full of grace)



LOVE SPENT
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Jean-Baptiste, Priscilla Hamilton, Alain Whyte, Ryan Buendia and Michael McHenry

You had all of me, you wanted more
Would you have married me if I were poor
I guess if I was your treasury
You'd have found the time to treasure me
How come you can't see
All that you needed
Was right here with me
Up until the end
All this pretend wasn't for free
CHORUS:
Hold me like your money
Tell me that you want me
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me
Now you have your money
Spend it till there's nothing
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me...
If we opened up a joint account
Would it put an end to all your doubt
Frankly, if my name was Benjamin
We wouldn't be in the mess we're in
You played with my heart
Till death do we part
That's what you said
Now you have your flash car
Women and bars
It's gone to your head
CHORUS:
Hold me like your money
Tell me that you want me
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me
Love me like your money
Spend it till there's nothing
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me...
I want you to take me
Like you took your money
Take me in your arms
Until your last breath
I want you to hold me
Like you hold your money
Hold on to me
Till there's nothing left
Love spent
Feeling love spent
Yeah, I'm love spent
Wondering where the love went
Love spent
Yeah I'm love spent
Really love spent
Wondering where it all went
I want you to take me
Like you took your money
Take me in your arms
Until your last breath
I want you to hold me
Like you hold your money
Hold me in your arms
Until there's nothing left (nothing left, nothing left, nothing left)
Love spent
Feeling love spent
Yeah, I'm love spent
Wondering where the love went
Love spent
Yeah I'm love spent
Really love spent
Wondering where it all went
I want you to take me
Like you took your money
Take me in your arms
Until your last breath
I want you to hold me
Like you hold your money
Hold me in your arms
Until there's nothing left (nothing left, nothing left, nothing left)



MASTERPIECE
Written by Madonna, Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry

If you were the Mona Lisa
You'd be hanging in the Louvre
Everyone would come to see you
You'd be impossible to move
It seems to me that's what you are
A rare and priceless work of art
You stay behind your velvet rope
But I will not renounce all hope
CHORUS:
And I'm right by your side
Like a thief in the night
I stand in front of the masterpiece
And I can't tell you why
It hurts so much
To be in love with a masterpiece
'Cause after all
Nothing's indestructible...
From the moment I first saw you
All the darkness turned to white
An Impressionistic painting
Tiny particles of light
It seem to me that's what you're like
The "look but please don't touch me" type
And honestly it can't be fun
To always be the Chosen one
CHORUS:
And I'm right by your side
Like a thief in the night
I stand in front of a masterpiece
And I can't tell you why
It hurts so much
To be in love with a masterpiece
'Cause after all
Nothing's indestructible...
Nothing's indestructible...
Nothing's indestructible...
Nothing's indestructible...
CHORUS:
And I'm right by your side
Like a thief in the night
I stand in front of a masterpiece
And I can't tell you why
It hurts so much
To be in love with a masterpiece
And I'm right by your side
Like a thief in the night
I stand in front of a masterpiece
And I can't tell you why
It hurts so much
To be in love with a masterpiece
'Cause after all
Nothing's indestructible...
'Cause after all
Nothing's indestructible...



FALLING FREE
Written by Madonna, Laurie Mayer, William Orbit and Joe Henry

When I move a certain way
I feel an ache I'd kept at bay
A hairline break that's taking hold
A medal that I thought was gold
And pure so sure I'd struck a vein
I wanted you to feel the same
So when you did ignite a spark
Rescue me from all this dark
See our hearts are intertwined
Then I'm free, free of mind
I'm falling free
And see our hearts are intertwined
And then I'm free, I'm free of mind
Deep and pure our hearts aligned
And then I'm free, I'm free of mind
When I raise a certain wing
And crawl beneath that growing thing
It throws a shadow over time
And keeps yours falling next to mine
Your days were meant to fly and do
I fall and fold mine into you
And what you take is just enough
And what you give is what I love
And when you live you raise the sail
And then I'm free, free to fail
I'm falling free
Deep and pure our hearts aligned
And then I'm free, I'm free of mind
When I let loose the need to know
Then we're both free, we're free to go
When I lose a certain claim
That tries to know and needs to blame
Whatever river runs aground
It turns my head and washes down
The face of God that stands above
Pouring over Hope and Love
That all of might, and life, and limb
Could turn around and love again
When I let loose the need to know
Then we're both free, free to go
I'm falling free
I'm falling
I'm falling
I'm falling free
I'm falling
I'm falling
I'm falling free
Deep and pure our hearts aligned
And then I'm free, I'm free of mind
When I let loose the need to know
Then we're both free, we're free to go
Deep and pure our hearts aligned
And then I'm free, I'm free of mind
When I let loose the need to know
Then we're both free, free to go...




MDNA DELUXE EDITION (2012)

BEAUTIFUL KILLER
Written by Madonna, Martin Solveig and Michael Tordjman

Dark eyes on a dangerous face
You are a beautiful killer
We pass by the same old place
You are a beautiful killer
You don't have a life
You have blood on your hands
You can't sleep at night
And I don't understand
I don't know much about
You are a wanted man
CHORUS:
You can call my name and I'll be around
Maybe I'll let you shoot me down
Cause you're a beautiful killer
With a beautiful face
A beautiful killer and you won't leave a trace...
Do you know the reasons why
You are a beautiful killer
Hurt yourself but you never die
You are a beautiful killer
I like your silhouette when you stand on the street
Like a samurai you can handle the heat
Makes me wanna pray for a haunted man
CHORUS:
You can call my name and I'll be around
Maybe I'll let you shoot me down
Cause you're a beautiful killer
With a beautiful face
A beautiful killer and you won't leave a trace
Can't really talk with a gun in my mouth
Maybe that's what you've been dreaming about
Cause you're a beautiful killer
With beautiful eyes
A beautiful killer and I love your disguise...
(Beautiful Killer)
Can't change the past
Good guys always finish last
(Beautiful Killer)
What happens now?
I need to know how the story goes
Are we together?
I'll love you forever...
You can call my name and I'll be around...
Maybe I'll let you shoot me down...
CHORUS:
You can call my name and I'll be around
Maybe I'll let you shoot me down
Cause you're a beautiful killer
With a beautiful face
A beautiful killer and you won't leave a trace
Can't really talk with a gun in my mouth
Maybe that's what you've been dreaming about
Cause you're a beautiful killer
With beautiful eyes
A beautiful killer and I love your disguise
You are a beautiful killer...
But you'll never be Alain Delon...



I FUCKED UP
Written by Madonna, Martin Solveig and Julien Jabre

CHORUS:
I fucked up, I made a mistake
Nobody does it better than myself
I'm sorry, I'm not afraid to say
I wish I could take it back but I can't...
I'm so ashamed
You're in so much pain
I blamed you when things didn't go my way
If I didn't, you'd be here
If I didn't fight back, I'd have no fear
If I took another path
Things would be so different but they're not
I could've just kept my big mouth closed
I could've just done what I was told
Maybe I should've turned silver into gold
But in front of you I was cold
CHORUS:
I fucked up, I made a mistake
Nobody does it better than myself
I'm sorry, I'm not afraid to say
I wish I could take it back but I can't...
I thought we had it all
You brought out the best in me
And somehow I destroyed the perfect dream
I thought we were indestructible
I never imagined we could fall
You wanna know how to make God laugh
Tell him your plans
We could've bought a house with a swimming pool
Filled it up with Warhols, it would be so cool
Could've gone riding stallions in the country sides
With a pack of Great Danes, racing eye to eye
We could've toured the world in a private jet
Run naked on the beach all soaking wet
We could've climbed a mountain, seen a perfect sunrise
Written our names across the sky
We could've gotten drunk and driven on the autobahn
We could've gotten ourselves arrested in St. Germain
We could've lived like crazy til the day we die
Instead I made you cry
CHORUS:
I fucked up, I made a mistake
Nobody does it better than myself
I'm sorry, je suis désolée
I wish I could take it back but I can't
I fucked up, I made a mistake
Nobody does it better than myself
I'm sorry, I'm not ashamed to say
I wish I could have you back maybe one day
Or not...

BEST FRIEND
Written by Madonna, Alessandro "Alle" Benassi and Marco "Benny" Benassi

I miss your brain, the way you think
But I don't miss the way you used to drink
I miss our talks, the universal law
You had a way of seeing through my flaws
It's so confusing, I thought I met my match
An intellectual with talent, what a catch
You always said we'd be better off as friends
It was inevitable that it would end
Your picture's off my wall
But I'm still waiting for your call
And every man that walks through that door
Will be compared to you forever more
CHORUS:
Still I have no regrets
'Cause I survived the biggest test
I cannot lie and I won't pretend
But I feel like I lost my very best friend...
I miss the countryside where we used to lay
The smell of roses on a lovely summer day
You made me laugh, you had a clever wit
I miss the good times, I don't miss all of it
You wrote me poetry
You had a way with words
You said you wanted more than just a pretty girl
Maybe I challenged you a little bit too much
We couldn't have two drivers on the clutch
Your picture's off my wall
But I'm still waiting for your call
And every man that walks through that door
Will be compared to you forever more
CHORUS:
Still I have no regrets
'Cause I survived the biggest test
I cannot lie and I won't pretend
But I feel like I lost my very best friend
Yet I have no regrets
'Cause I survived the biggest test
I cannot lie and I won't pretend
But I feel like I lost my very best friend
It's so sad that it had to end
I lost my very best friend...
Not gonna candy coat it
And I don't want to pretend
I put away all your letters
Saved the best ones that I had
It wasn't always perfect
But it wasn't always bad...
CHORUS:
Still I have no regrets
'Cause I survived the biggest test
I cannot lie and I won't pretend
But I feel like I lost my very best friend
Yet I have no regrets
'Cause I survived the biggest test
I cannot lie and I won't pretend
But I feel like I lost my very best friend
It's so sad that it had to end...





MADONNA - REBEL HEART ALBUM (2015)



LIVING FOR LOVE
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad and Ariel Rechtshaid

First you love me and I let you in
Made me feel like I was born again
You empowered me, you made me strong
Built me up and I could do no wrong
I let down my guard
I fell into your arms
Forgot who I was
I didn't hear the alarms
Now I'm down on my knees
Alone in the dark
I was blind to your game
You fired a shot in my heart
Took me to heaven, let me fall down
Now that it's over, I'm gonna carry on
Lifted me up and watched me stumble
After the heartache I'm gonna carry on
CHORUS:
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up (love, lift me up)
Love's gonna lift me up (love, lift me up)...
I could get caught up in bitterness
But I'm not dwelling on this crazy mess
I found freedom in the ugly truth
I deserve the best and it's not you
You've broken my heart
But you can't break it down
Not falling apart
Once was lost, now I'm found
Picked up my crown
Put it back on my head
I can forgive
But I will never forget
Took me to heaven, let me fall down
Now that it's over I'm gonna carry on
Lifted me up and watched me stumble
After the heartache I'm gonna carry on
CHORUS:
Living for love, I'm living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up (love, lift me up)
Love's gonna lift me up (love, lift me up)
Love's gonna lift me up (lift me up, lift me up,...)
Cause love's gonna lift me up
Up up up up
Lord, lift me up up up up
Love's gonna lift me up
Up up up up
Lord, lift me up up up up
Cause love's gonna lift me up (love's gonna lift me up)
Living for love, living for love
Not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not gonna stop
Cause love's gonna lift me up



DEVIL PRAY
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker

Take my sins and wash them away
Teach me how to pray
I've been stranded here in the dark
Take these walls away
I've been swimming in the ocean
'Til I almost drowned
Give me something I can believe in
Teach me how to pray
And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whisky
Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid
Forever be lost with no way home
CHORUS:
Yeah we can run and we can hide
But we won't find the answers
If you go down and you'll get help along the way
But if you want to save your soul
Then we could travel altogether
And make the devil pray...
(Save my soul, gonna save my soul)
Devil's here to fool ya
(Save my soul, gonna save my soul)
Devil's here to fool ya
Ohh save my, ohh save my, ohh save my
Devil's here to fool ya
Ohh save my, ohh save my, ohh save my
Devil's here to fool ya...
Mother Mary, can't you help me
Cause I've gone astray
All the angels that were around me
Have all flown away
The ground beneath my feet's getting warmer
Lucifer is near
Holding on, but I'm getting weaker
Watch me disappear
And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whisky
Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid
Forever been lost with no way home
CHORUS:
Yeah we can run and we can hide
But we won't find the answers
If you go down and you'll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul
Then we could travel altogether
And make the devil pray
Oohh sing Hallelujah
Oohh save my soul
Oohh the devil's here to fool ya
Until my story's told
I said
Oohh sing Hallelujah
Oohh save my soul
Oohh the devil's here to fool ya
Until my story's told...



GHOSTTOWN
Written by Madonna, Sean Douglas, Evan Kidd Bogart and Jason Evigan

Maybe it was all too much
Too much for a man to take
Everything's bound to break
Sooner or later, sooner or later
You're all that I can trust
Facing the darkest days
Everyone ran away
We're gonna stay here, we're gonna stay here
Ahh, ahh I know you're scared tonight
Ahh, ahh I'll never leave your side
CHORUS:
When it all falls, when it all falls down
I'll be your fire when the lights go out
When there's no one, no one else around
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown
When the world gets cold, I'll be your cover
Let's just hold onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown...
Tell me how we got this far
Every man for himself
Everything's gone to hell
We gotta stay strong, we're gonna hold on
This world has turned to dust
All we've got left is love
Might as well start with us
Singing a new song, something to build on
Ahh, ahh I know you're scared tonight
Ahh, ahh I'll never leave your side
CHORUS:
When it all falls, when it all falls down
I'll be your fire when the lights go out
When there's no one, no one else around
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown
When the world gets cold, I'll be your cover
Let's just hold onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown...
I know we're alright
Cause we'll never be alone
In this mad mad
In this mad mad world
Even with no light
We're gonna shine like gold
In this mad mad
In this mad mad world
CHORUS:
When it all falls, when it all falls down
I'll be your fire when the lights go out
When there's no one, no one else around
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown
When it all falls, when it all falls down
I'll be your fire when the lights go out
When there's no one, no one else around
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown
When the world gets cold I'll be your cover
Let's just hold onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We'll be two souls in a ghosttown...



UNAPOLOGETIC BITCH
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Garcia, Orellana, Maureen McDonald and Toby Gad

Woke up this morning feeling good that you were gone
Hurt for a while, but I'm finally moving on
Said it, did it, hit it, quit it
Then you let it go
Still you tryin' to call me but I blocked you on my phone
It took a minute but now I'm feeling strong
It almost killed me but I'm better off alone
Now you're saying that you're sorry, I don't wanna know
Better face the fact you had to go
CHORUS:
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
You know you never really knew how much you loved me
Til you lost me
Did you?
You know you never really knew
How much your selfish bullshit cost me
Well f*ck you
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
I know you'd like it if I sat at home and cried
But that ain't gonna happen, here's the reason why
When we did it, I'll admit it, wasn't satisfied
When the gun was loaded you were never on my side
I'm popping bottles that you can't even afford
I'm throwing parties and you won't get in the door
Said it, get it, love it, hate it
I don't care no more
Tell me how it feels to be ignored
CHORUS:
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
You know you never really knew how much you loved me
Til you lost me
Did you?
You know you never really knew
How much your selfish bullshit cost me
Well f*ck you
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
CHORUS:
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
You know you never really knew
How much you loved me 'til you lost me
Did you?
You know you never really knew
How much your selfish bullshit cost me
Well f*ck you
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...



ILLUMINATI
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald, Larry Griffin Jr., Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown

It's not Jay-Z and Beyoncé
It's not Nicki or Lil Wayne
It's not Oprah and Obama
The Pope and Rihanna
Queen Elisabeth or Kanye
It's not pentagrams or witchcraft
It's not triangles or stacks of cash
Black magic or Gaga
Gucci or Prada
Riding on the Golden Calf
CHORUS:
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
That's what it is, the Truth and the Light
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
Nothing to hide, the secret's inside
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati...
It's the Enlightenment that started it all
The Founding Fathers wrote it down on the wall
And now the media's misleading us all
Turned right and to wrong
It's time to dance and turn this dark into somethin'
So let the fire burn, this music is bumpin'
We're gonna live forever, love never dies
It starts tonight
Behind the curtain of the New World Order
It's not platinum encrypted corners
It's not Isis or the Phoenix, Pyramids of Egypt
Don't make it into something sordid
It's not Steve Jobs or Bill Gates
It's not the Google of United States
It's not Bieber or Lebron
Clinton or Obama
Or anyone you'd love to hate
CHORUS:
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
That's what it is, the Truth and the Light
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
Nothing to hide, the secret's inside
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati...
You know that everything that glitters ain't gold
So let the music take you out of control
It's time to feel it in your body and soul
Come on let's go
We're gonna dance and turn the dark into somethin'
So let the fire burn, this music is bumpin'
We're gonna live forever, love never dies
It starts tonight (tonight, tonight, ...)
It's like, it's like
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati

HOLD TIGHT
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad, Uzoechi Emenike and Meckseper

A million miles later
We walked through the valley of the darkest night
We made it through the fire
We're scarred and we're bruised but our hearts will guide us
Together
I know our love's gonna last forever
We're gonna be alright
Tonight...
We'll live with no limits
We'll dance in the middle of the freezing rain
With you and I in it
Survive the eye of the hurricane
Together
We're gonna make this better
We're gonna be alright tonight
CHORUS:
Hold tight
As long as you're by my side
Hold tight
Everything's gonna be alright
Only love, only love tonight
Lights off, we're burning so bright
Hold tight

Everything's gonna...
Everything's gonna...
Everything's gonna...
A million miles later
We walked through the valley of the darkest night
We made it through the fire
We're scarred and we're bruised but our hearts will guide us
Together
I know our love's gonna last forever
We're gonna be alright
Tonight

JOAN OF ARC
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald and Larry Griffin Jr.

Each time they take a photograph
I lose a part I can't get back
I wanna hide
This is the part where I detach
Each time they write a hateful word
Dragging my soul into the dirt
I wanna die
Never admitted but it hurts
CHORUS:
I don't wanna talk about it right now
Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
But I'm in the dark yeah
I can't be a superhero right now
Even hearts made out of steel can break down
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
I'm only human
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not going down...
One little lie can ruin my day
Words are like weapons, they betray
When I am afraid
One word of kindness it can save me
CHORUS:
I don't wanna talk about it right now
Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
But I'm in the dark yeah
I can't be a superhero right now
Even hearts made out of steel can break down
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
I'm only human
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not going down...
Being destructive isn't brave
They couldn't say it to my face
One day I won't care
But for the moment I'm not there
I'll just close my eyes and let you catch me now...
CHORUS:
I don't wanna talk about it right now
Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
But I'm in the dark yeah
I can't be a superhero right now
Even hearts made out of steel can break down
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
I'm only human
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not going down
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not Joan of Arc...

Mike Tyson:
I'm the best that the world has ever seen (I'm the best ever)
I'm somebody you'll never forget 'cause I work hard and sweat and my tears (Can't be stopped)
I've never fallen again and if I did I'll come back
Madonna:
If you try and fail, get up again
Destiny will choose you in the end
If you don't make the choice
And you don't use your voice
Someone else will speak for you instead
What you want is just within your reach
But you gotto practice what you preach
You pay with sweat and tears
And overcome your fears
Never let the fire inside you leave
CHORUS:
"I can't", "Icon", two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star
Show the world who you are, who you are
Yeah, there's another part of you no one sees
There's a burning fire that's underneath
Baby don't you know you were meant to be
Born to be, meant to be
Iconic...
Iconic...
Ironic...
Iconic...
Tell me I'm no good and I'll be great
Say I have to fight and I can't wait
Standing in the wings
A butterfly that stings
I will rise above 'cause it's my fate
CHORUS:
"I can't", "Icon", two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star

Chance the Rapper:
Alright
Firefly change when they catch ya
Wanna put ya in their net for their light glow
Yellow brick highway
Paparazzi piled up on the high road
They just turned the sun into a idol
They just want to see how high the sky go
Just to find out how it feel to fall back
Madonna said I remind her of Michael
Steady blowin' up my head
Blowin' up my head
Put it on your wall
Put me in the school book
Put me in your laws
Put me in the desk
And in the synagogues
Firefly glow when they catch ya
Wanna catch ya when ya lights go dim
Wanna turn you to a letter in they logo
Wanna stick you in a jar with a pen
You a icon
Madonna:
CHORUS:
"I can't", "Icon", two letters apart

HEARTBREAKCITY
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Tobias Jimson, Flygare, Paloma Stoecker, Salem Al Fakir, Magnus Lidehall and Vincent Pontare

Cut me down the middle
Fucked me up a little
You said I was your Queen
I tried to give you everything
And now you want your freedom
You got just what you came for
A bit of fame and fortune
Now I'm no longer needed
You said it was over, wanted it to end
Then you had the nerve to say that we could still be friends
You had a few secrets I was never told
Now everyone's talking and I'm the last to know
CHORUS:
Now I'm in the middle of HeartBreakCity (HeartBreakCity)
Cause I'm in the middle of a world not pretty (world not pretty)
Your clever game got the best of me (best of me)
But you ain't gonna get the rest of me (rest of me)
Cause I'm in HeartBreakCity...
Torn me into pieces
Didn't have no damn reason
I let you in my house
You helped yourself to everything
And left me with your mess
I curse the day we met
Your memory is haunting me
I wish I could forget
You said it was over, wanted it to end
Then you had the nerve to say that we could still be friends
You had a few secrets I was never told
Now everyone's talking and I'm the last to know
CHORUS:
I'm in the middle of HeartBreakCity (HeartBreakCity)
Cause I'm in the middle of a world not pretty (world not pretty)
Your clever game got the best of me (best of me)
But you ain't gonna get the rest of me (rest of me)
Cause I'm in HeartBreakCity
And it's not that pretty...



BODY SHOP
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald, Larry Griffin Jr., Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker

With all these curves we might need
To have the breaks looked at
So pop the hood and see what's good
I need a tune-up bad
My pressure's low, I'm on a roll
But my transmission's blown
I heard a thump, and then a knock
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
CHORUS:
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line...
You can polish the headlights
You can smooth out the fender
You can start the ignition
We can go on a bender
Stuck to the seat, our body heat
What will you do with this ass
Let's shift the gears, get outta here
We're stepping on the gas
We gotta bounce, we're going fast
Let's let the seat go back
You take the wheel
I'll sit on top
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
CHORUS:
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line...
Overheating the engine
Might be blowin' a gasket
Tighten up the suspension
And you don't have to ask it
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
I would drive to the ends of the earth for you...
Jumpstart my heart, you know what you gotta do...
I would ride through the dark of the night with you...
Cross my heart and hope to die, it's true...
CHORUS:
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop...



HOLY WATER
Written by Madonna, Martin Kierszenbaum, Natalia Kills, Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown

I can give you everything that you want
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
You can't buy this at no luxury store
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
There's a place you gotta go
Before I let you take it all
It's like a drug, it should be illegal
Baby you should get down low
And drink my precious alcohol
You look so thirsty, I think you need it
CHORUS:
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, kiss it better...
I can teach you all the things you don't know
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
It's rare like mink, it's something you wanna own
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
There's something you gotta hit
It's sacred and immaculate
I can let you in heaven's door
I promise you it's not a sin
Find salvation deep within
We can do it here on the floor
CHORUS:
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Bless yourself and genuflect)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(If you like it, please confess)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Bless yourself and genuflect)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Yeezus loves my pussy best)
Holy water, holy water, holy water,...
Ladies with an attitude
Don't just stand there, don't, don't, don't just stand there
Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it
There's something you gotta hit
It's sacred and immaculate
I promise you it's not a sin
Find salvation deep within
CHORUS:
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Bless yourself and genuflect)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(If you like it, please confess)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Bless yourself and genuflect)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Yeezus loves my pussy best)

WASH ALL OVER ME
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Salem Al Fakir, Magnus Lidehäll, Vincent Pontare, Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown

In a world that's changing
I'm a stranger
In a strange land
There's a contradiction
And I'm stuck here in between
Life is like a desert
An oasis
To confuse me
So I walk this razor's edge
Will I stand or will I fall?
Turn a blind eye
Try to pretend that nothing is what it seems
Torn between the impulse to stay or
Running away from all this madness
CHORUS:
Who am I to decide what should be done?
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me...
All of my illusions
Could be shattered in a second
You can thread a needle
With a teardrop from my eye
It's a cruel injustice
To be witness
To the things I see
Looking for the answer
When it's right in front of me
From the tower of Babylon
Where nothing is what it seems
Gonna watch the sun going down
I'm not gonna run from all this sadness
Who am I to decide what should be done
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me
CHORUS:
Who am I to decide what should be done?
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me...

AUTO-TUNE BABY
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown

I told you I don't want you all the time
Cause you're not mine
I'm not in love, but I'm in light
So far it's working fine
But when I need you then I'm desperate
I'm a little child
Just like an animal, down on my knees
And beggin'
CHORUS:
Yeah, all wrapped up, I wanna be your little baby now
Put my head on your shoulder
You can rock me, rock me now
In the middle of the night you can hear me crying loud
Put my head on your shoulder and rock me
Open the door, unlock me
We've got tonight, so rock me now...
I'm in my bed, and I'm obsessed
I'm lying wide awake
I need someone like you to come
And put me in my place
Cause in the day, I can't be tamed
Boy, you don't wanna know
But in the night, my hands are tied
You tell me where to go
CHORUS:
Yeah, all wrapped up, I wanna be your little baby now
Put my head on your shoulder
You can rock me, rock me now
In the middle of the night you can hear me crying loud
Put my head on your shoulder and rock me
Open the door, unlock me
We've got tonight, so rock me
Open the door, unlock me
We've got tonight, so rock me now...
Rock me now...
Rock me now...
CHORUS:
Yeah, all wrapped up, I wanna be your little baby now
Put my head on your shoulder
You can rock me, rock me now
In the middle of the night you can hear me crying loud
Put my head on your shoulder and rock me
Yeah, all wrapped up, I wanna be your little baby now
Put my head on your shoulder
You can rock me, rock me now
In the middle of the night you can hear me crying loud
Put my head on your shoulder and rock me
You and me, sitting on a tree
You be the daddy, I'll be the baby...

BEST NIGHT
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad, Napier and Swanson

You can call me M tonight
You can be my man tonight
It's gonna be like damn, that's right
Give you love that you'll never forget
The city is our playground tonight
We're gonna be like gangsters tonight
We don't give a damn if it's wrong or right
Lighten up, we won't have no regrets
CHORUS:
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
Lose your self-control, we can go wild
Show you what it means to feel alive
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life...
We don't have to speak that much
I hear you when I feel your touch
Whisper in my ears, make me blush
Feel the chill when we kiss, don't forget
All you had as dreams, don't hold back
All the fantasies you ever had
Just do what you like, go ahead
Close your eyes, make a wish, no regrets
CHORUS:
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
Lose your self-control, we can go wild
Show you what it means to feel alive
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life...
Surrender to the pleasure (wanting)
When we breath in together (waiting)
It's either now or never (for you)
This feeling will take over
No sex tapes, no camera (wanting)
Just you and me together (waiting)
Repeat it like a mantra (for you)
I'm in love, I'm in love...
CHORUS:
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life
Lose your self-control, we can go wild
Show you what it means to feel alive
I'll make this the best night of your life
I'll make this the best night of your life...




VENI VIDI VICI (feat. Nas)
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Ariel Rechtshaid, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad and Jones

Nas:
Madonna, life is so crazy
You've been through a lot
Gotta tell your story sometimes, you know
Madonna:
Seem like yesterday, I was a baby on the street
I took a Holiday, I was stepping to the beat
I had to pay my rent, on the Lower East Side
I threw my tag around, let B-Boys take me for a ride
I started writing songs, I kinda got Into the Groove
They tried to criticize my every single move
But then I realized I had nothing left to lose
It took me by surprise when I became the news
CHORUS:
I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said (whatcha do)
I came, I saw, I conquered
I was constant as a northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered (let's go)
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered...
I Expressed myself, came Like A Virgin down the aisle
Exposed my naked ass, and I did it with a smile
And when it came to S.E.X., I know I walked the Borderline
And when I struck a pose, all the gay boys lost their mind
I Justified My Love, I made you say a little Prayer
They had me crucified, you know I had to take it there
I Opened up my Heart, I learned The Power of Good-bye
I saw a Ray of Light, Music saved my life (music saved my life)
CHORUS:
I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said (whatcha do)
I came, I saw, I conquered
I was constant as a northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered (let's go)
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered...
Nas:
In 1994 I came through the door
With that raw beats versus scratches
Verbally murdered rappers
My mom's from the Carolinas
Pops from Natchez
In QB is where I started flowin'
But I was scared the cops gon' kick my apartment door in
Had a baby girl by a crazy girl
Then I got married happily of course
Then that ended in a bad divorce
I know how to pick 'em don't I
Never gave a f*ck about public pressure
Or the ridicule or "too big to lose"
Now who's the fool
And I never been happier, no lie
I'm just your humble servant, I'm Nas
If y'all burn down Ferguson Imma ride
My life cannot be compared to anybody
Any trappers, any rapper
Any politician, beautician, or musician
Anybody, saw many bodies
Many coffins, heads or tails
Penny tossers either dead or jail
Not many options on the block I came from
And I turned to world rap messiah, spit rapid fire
And I'm goin' right back to the block I came from
One
Madonna:
CHORUS:
I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said (whatcha do)
I came, I saw, I conquered
I was constant as a northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered (let's go)
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered...
Nas:
Madonna on the track
Nas in the back



S.E.X.
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald, Larry Griffin Jr., Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown

...Hot, Sex
Sex, tell me...
...Hot, Sex
Sex, tell me...
Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed
When you read my mind, get down and discover me
I'm an open door, let you come inside of me
Wanna put my hands around your neck
Gonna take you to a place that you will not forget
CHORUS:
Sex, what you know about sex?
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex?
Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed
You got a bad attitude
I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby
Oh my God
Let me clean your wound
I can be your nurse
Got the antidote, please show me where it hurts
Can you be my father, tell me what to do
You can punish me and maybe I will punish you
CHORUS:
Sex, what you know about sex?
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex?
Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed
You got a bad attitude
I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby
Oh my God...
A lesson in sexology...
Twisted rope, hand cuffs
Blindfold, string of pearls
Necktie, silk scarf
Silver chains, pretty girls
Thigh highs, feather mask
High heels, gold damask
Perfume, switchblade
Absinthe, Novocaine
Chopsticks, underwear
Bar of soap, dental chair
Fishnets, satin sheets
Garter belt, raw meat
Candle light, keyhole
Leather belt, mink stole
Golden shower, latex thong
Licorice whip, strap-it-on
Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet
Back and forth 'til we break the bed
You got a bad attitude
I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby
Sex...



MESSIAH
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Salem Al Fakir, Magnus Lidehall and Vincent Pontare

I am the promise that you cannot keep
Reap what you sow, find what you seek
I am the sorceress down in the deep
I am the earth under your feet
I am the moon with no light of my own
You are the sun guarding your throne
I heard the angels whisper to me
Look for the signs, he is the one
CHORUS:
I'll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way to your heart
I'll cast a spell that you can't undo
'Til you wake up and you find that you love me too
'Til you wake up and you find that you love me too...
I'll be the bride that is married to life
You are the day, I am the night
Weave you a blanket of silver and gold
I'll keep you warm, do as I'm told
I need your strength, it will keep me from harm
I'll be your Queen, safe in your arms
Don't want to get to the end of my days
Saying I wasn't amazed
CHORUS:
I'll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way to your heart
I'll cast a spell that you can't undo
'Til you wake up and you find
I'll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way to your heart
I'll cast a spell that you can't undo
'Til you wake up and you find that you love me too...
'Til you wake up and you find that you love me too...
'Til you wake up and you find that you love me too...



REBEL HEART
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Salem Al Fakir, Magnus Lidehall and Vincent Pontare

I lived my life like a masochist
Hearing my father say "Told you so, told you so!"
"Why can't you be like the other girls?"
I said "Oh no, that's not me"
"And I don't think that it'll ever be"
Thought I belonged to a different tribe
Walking alone never satisfied, satisfied
Tried to fit in but it wasn't me
I said "Oh no, I want more"
"That's not what I'm looking for"
CHORUS:
So I took the road less travelled by
And I barely made it out alive
Through the darkness somehow I survived
Tough love, I knew it from the start
Deep down in the depths of my rebel heart...
I've spent some time as a narcissist
Hearing the others say "Look at you, look at you!"
"Trying to be so provocative"
I said "Oh yeah, that was me!"
"All of the things I did just to be seen"
Outgrown my past and I've shed my skin
Letting it go and I start again, start again
Never look back, it's a waste of time
I said "Oh yeah, this is me"
"And I'm right here where I wanna be"
I said "Hell yeah, this is me"
"Right where I'm supposed to be"
CHORUS:
So I took the road less travelled by
And I barely made it out alive
Through the darkness somehow I survived
Tough love, I knew it from the start
Deep down in my rebel heart
So I took the road less travelled by
And I barely made it out alive
Through the darkness somehow I survived
Tough love, I knew it from the start
Deep down in the depths of my rebel heart (my rebel heart)
In my rebel heart...

BEAUTIFUL SCARS
Written by Madonna, Rick Nowels, Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker

Just take me with all my stupid flaws
Changing me is like shooting in the dark
Patience please, I'll never be as perfect as you want me to
Believe me, I want it just as bad
Forgive me, wish I could change the past
Take it cause I'll never be as perfect as you want
I think you're confusing me with somebody else
I won't apologize for being myself
CHORUS:
Take me with all of my beautiful scars
I love you the way that you are
I come to you with all my flaws
With all my beautiful scars
I love you the way that you are
With all my beautiful scars...
Don't judge me, just gotta let me be
Accept me although I'm incomplete
My imperfections make me unique
That's my belief
I think you're confusing me with somebody else
I won't apologize for being myself
CHORUS:
Take me with all of my beautiful scars
I love you the way that you are
I come to you with all my flaws
With all my beautiful scars
I love you the way that you are
With all my beautiful scars...
Never say never, anything is possible
Always been a rebel, overcoming obstacles
I can't give you perfect but I can give you forever, oh, oh, oh, oh...
CHORUS:
Take me with all of my beautiful scars
I love you the way that you are
I come to you with all my flaws
With all my beautiful scars

With all my beautiful scars
With all my beautiful scars
I love you the way that you are...



BORROWED TIME
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker

Do we need to start a war?
Do we need to take the sign?
If we open up our eyes
Realize that we are blind
Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
CHORUS:
Who's wrong or right
Who's black or white
It doesn't matter what you're bleeding for
Straight or bi
Your God or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all
Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed...
Our time is only borrowed...
Our time is only borrowed...
Do we need to build a bomb?
Do we need to fire a gun?
If you have to stand your ground
It's a war that can't be won
Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
CHORUS:
Who's rich or poor
Virgin or whore
It doesn't matter what you're praying for
Death, alive
Your truth or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all
Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed...
Our time is only borrowed...
Our time is only borrowed...
Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
CHORUS:
Who's rich or poor
Virgin or whore
It doesn't matter what you're praying for
Death, alive
Your truth or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all
Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed
Our time is only borrowed...



ADDICTED
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub and Savan Kotecha

I'm under your spell
Fold me in, took me down with your poisonous touch
You brought me to hell
Watch me burn with the fever that I love so much
You're watching me crawl
You get your kicks, take your fist, put it right through the wall
The drug that I crave
You're so clever, you're the devil, watch you slither away
See I don't know what it is
But I'm attracted to the dark
And it was easy to predict
You were gonna be the one who broke my heart
You were gonna be the one who tore it apart
Make me fall down on my knees and start to pray
You were gonna be the one that got away
Your truth is a lie
Bitter fruit, bitter sweet, but oh so devine
Now that I've had a taste
Like a moth to a flame I'm addicted to pain...
CHORUS:
See I don't know what it is
But I'm attracted to the dark
And it was easy to predict
You were gonna be the one who broke my heart
You were gonna be the one who tore it apart
Make me fall down on my knees and start to pray
You were gonna be the one that got away
I'm addicted, I'm, I'm addicted
I'm addicted, I'm, I'm addicted
I'm addicted, I'm, I'm addicted to the one that got away...
See I don't know what it is
But I'm attracted to the dark
And it was easy to predict
You were gonna be the one who broke my heart
See I don't know what it is
But I'm attracted to the dark
And it was easy to predict
You were gonna be the one who broke my heart
You were gonna be the one who tore it apart
Make me fall down on my knees and start to pray
You were gonna be the one that got away
I'm addicted, I'm, I'm addicted
I'm addicted, I'm, I'm addicted
I'm addicted, I'm, I'm addicted to the one that got away...



GRAFFITI HEART
Written by Madonna, Maureen McDonald, Tobias Gad and Larry Darnell Griffin

If graffiti on the wall changed anything at all
Then it would be illegal
If scars could go away
What would your body say
Don't ever hide your feelings
CHORUS:
Ohh don't ever try to take my freedom
Ohh your imperfections, this world needs them
What do you got, show me your Basquiat
He didn't keep it all to himself
Even with Keith out on the street, he died fighting
So you can do it as well
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart...
Frida showed her feelings
Painting from the ceiling
Back in the beginning
Nothing's what it seems
She paint all her dreams
She made her own reality
CHORUS:
Ohh don't ever try to take my freedom
Ohh your imperfections, this world needs them
What do you got, show me your Basquiat
He didn't keep it all to himself
Even with Keith out on the street, he died fighting
So you can do it as well
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
... down and take down
But they can't distroy our history
This wall, it must fall...
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
If graffiti on the wall changed anything at all
Then it would be illegal...

I'm no stranger to deception
I've lied and been lied to
I'm no paragon of virtue
But I wanna be with you
I've never been a righteous soul
And I don't pretend I am
But I walk the line when I'm with you
'Cause you make me believe I can
But we're running out of options
And we're running out of time (out of time)
And I don't know if it's you or me
But it's time to speak your mind
CHORUS:
Madonna & Justin Timberlake:
Because I'm travelling across the sky
When you're with me, your hand in mine
Our honesty will make us fly
Baby, travelling across the sky
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)...
I'm not good at keeping quiet
And I can't keep this tied down
But it's got to count for something (yeah)
That we're still hanging around
If you need an explanation for
What's false and what is true
And I'd rather stop the world and think
That I could not be with you
But we're running out of options
And we're running out of time (out of time)
And I don't know if it's you or me
But it's time to speak your mind
CHORUS:
Madonna & Justin Timmberlake:
Because I'm travelling across the sky
When you're with me, your hand in mine
Our honesty will make us fly
Baby, travelling across the sky
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh)
Across the sky, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh (Travelling across the sky)
Across the sky, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh (Travelling across the sky)
Across the sky, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh (Travelling across the sky)
Across the sky, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh-oh (Travelling across the sky)



ALONE WITH YOU
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

Don't you treat like I'm anybody
Not average, I'm not everyone
You criticize me like you're something special
But you're not
This is who I am, not ordinary
If you want the prize, better pay the price
Pointing out all the flaws in me like you were perfect
But you're not
CHORUS:
There you go
Didn't you make a convenient exit
I'd rather be on my own
I'd rather be all alone
There's something you didn't know
Here you come
Trying to make a convenient entrance
I'm turning my heart into stone
I'd rather be all alone
Than be alone with you...
Try to shoot me down, it'll ricochet
You can't escape, always hear my name
I'd like to raise the glass to all your arrogance (look it up)
Call it what you want, you're history
I'll never understand, you're a mystery
You lied with every kiss and all comes down to this
CHORUS:
There you go
Didn't you make a convenient exit
I'd rather be on my own
I'd rather be all alone
There's something you didn't know
Here you come
Trying to make a convenient entrance
I'm turning my heart into stone
I'd rather be all alone
Than be alone with
I'd rather be all alone
Now I'm free
I'd rather be all alone
I'd rather be all alone
Now I'm free
I'd rather be all alone
You can't handle me!




AMERICAN LIFE (Madonna feat. Missy Elliot)
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï
AMERICAN LIFE MAXI-SINGLE (2003)

Do I have to change my name? (Uh)
Will it get me far?
Should I lose some weight? (Uh)
Am I gonna be a star?
Missy Elliot:
Missy and Madonna boy, ain't nothin' better
Hotter than fat bitches dancin' in a sweater
Madonna am I okay skinny or fatter
When I rap on this track - all I smell is cheddar
You and I together, yo' we're tougher than leather
Make pop artists scatter when we talk chit-chatter
It really don't matter what time of day or weather
Or who's ass really fatter, my kadunk-kadunk badder
A rap so sick, won't stop, won't quit
All on my dick, like my name was 50 Cent, G-Unit!
I come with the heat, see my hits
Sound so sweet, Missy ain't pissy
Is you dizzy, is you with me
Tip me when you see me, 'cause you tryna get with me
Madonna bring the drama, oh mama that's trauma
Tougher than armor for your papa and your mama
Madonna:
I tried to be a boy, I tried to be a girl
I tried to be a mess, I tried to be the best
I guess I did it wrong, that's why I wrote this song
This type of modern life, is it for me?
I'd like to express my extreme point of view
I'd like to express my extreme point of view
(A Madonna exclusive)
So I went into a bar, looking for sympathy
A little company, I tried to find a friend
It's more easily said, it's always been the same
This type of modern life, is not for me
This type of modern life, is not for free
Do I have to change my name? (C'mon)
CHORUS:
American life (American life)
I live the American dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream
Madonna:
I tried to stay ahead, I tried to stay on top
I tried to play the part, but some how I forgot
Just what I did it for, and why I wanted more
This type of modern life, is it for me?
Fuck it
Ah, fuck it!
Ah, fuck it!
Ah, fuck it!
Ah, fuck it, uh-huh
CHORUS:
American life (American life)
I live the American dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream
Missy Elliot:
This is, a Madonna exclusive
This is, the American life, fuck it!
Madonna:
I'm drinking a Soy latte
I get a double shoté
It goes right through my body
And you know I'm satisfied
I drive my Mini Cooper
And I'm feeling super-dooper
Yo they tell I'm a trooper
And you know I'm satisfied
I do yoga and palates
And the room is full of hotties
So I'm checking out the bodies
And you know I'm satisfied
I'm digging on the isotopes
This metaphysic's shit is dope
And if all this can give me hope
You know I'm satisfied
I got a lawyer and a manager
An agent and a chef
Three nannies, an assistant
And a driver and a jet
A trainer and a butler
And a bodyguard or five
A gardener and a stylist
Do you think I'm satisfied?
I'd like to express my extreme point of view
I'm not Christian and I'm not a Jew
I'm just living out the American dream
And I just realised that nothing
Is what it seems...
Is what it seems...(C'mon)
CHORUS:
American life (American life)
I live the American dream (American dream)
You are the best thing I've seen
You are not just a dream
Missy Elliot:
This is the American Life, FUCK IT! 





ANIMAL
Written by Timbaland and Madonna
HARD CANDY ALBUM (2008) DEMO

I can practice restraint if that's what you want
Let me zip up my boots, we can go for a walk
If I rein you in, you can follow my lead
We can ride so fast, just remember to breathe
If you start to gear up, then I'll tighten my grip
If you try to talk back, I'll be using my whip
Might be hard to hear you with my bit in your mouth
If it starts to hurt then you'll have to scream loud
CHORUS:
There's no use going back 'cause the damage is done
Throw away all the rules 'cause there's gonna be none
Come on and let yourself go, 'cause there's no time to think
Now I'm in control of your animal instinct
If you want, I'll treat you like an animal
If you want, I'll feed you like an animal
If you want, I'll hunt you like an animal
If you want, I'll treat you like an animal...
If you misbehave, I can make you submit
If you start to act up, I can force you to quit
If you want me to break you, I can bring you to heel
Won't be hard to tame you when it's me that you fear
CHORUS:
There's no use going back 'cause the damage is done
Throw away all the rules 'cause there's gonna be none
Come on and let yourself go, 'cause there's no time to think
Now I'm in control of your animal instinct
There's no use going back 'cause the damage is done
Go away, all the rules 'cause there's gonna be none
Come on and let yourself go, 'cause there's no time to think
Now I'm in control of your animal instinct
If you want, I'll treat you like an animal
If you want, I'll feed you like an animal
If you want, I'll hunt you like an animal
If you want, I'll treat you like an animal
If you want, I'll treat you like an animal
If you want, I'll feed you like an animal
If you want, I'll hunt you like an animal
If you want, I'll treat you like an animal...



ARIOSO
Written by Madonna and William Orbit
MUSIC ALBUM DEMO (2000)

Everyone's an authority
On who and what is good for me
Who I see, what I wear
Everyone's a specialist
On where I've been
And who I've kissed
Choices I should make
The lovers I should take
Everyone's a connaisseur
How do they know?
What makes them so sure
Do they know what's right for me?
Everyone's a know-it-all
But will they be there
To catch me when I fall
Or have they just come along for the show
The me nobody knows
Just what it's like, nobody sees
If they could just walk along in my shoes for a while
Then they could see just what it's like
Everyone's a specialist
On where I've been
And who I've kissed
Choices I should make
The lovers I should take
The me nobody knows
Just what it's like, nobody sees
If they could just walk along in my shoes for a while
Then they could see just what it's like
The me nobody knows
Just what it's like
The me nobody knows
Just what it's like
If they could just walk along in my shoes for a while

Changing me is like shooting in the dark
Patience please, I'll never be as perfect as you want me to

BETWEEN THE BARS (COVER BY MADONNA PERFORMED AT 'SECRET PROJECT REVOLUTION' FILM PREMIERE)
Written by Elliott Smith

Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't but you might
The potential you'll be
That you'll never see
The promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now
And forget all about
The pressure of days
Do what I say
And I'll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head
People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still
Drink up baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there
With your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught
Drink up one more time
And I'll make you mine
Keep you apart,
Deep in my heart
Separate from the rest,
Where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot
People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

BITTERSWEET (POEM READ BY MADONNA)
Written by Rumi
A GIFT OF LOVE - MUSIC INSPIRED BY THE LOVE POEMS BY RUMI (1998)

In my hallucination
I saw my Beloved's flower garden
In my vertigo
In my dizziness
In my drunken haze
Whirling and dancing like a spinning wheel
I saw myself as the source of existence
I was there in the beginning
And I was the Spirit of Love
Now I am sober
There is only the hangover
And the memory of love
And only the sorrow
I yearn for happiness
I ask for help
I want mercy
And my Love says
"Look at me and hear me
Because I am here just with that"
I am your moon and your moonlight too
I am your flower garden and your water too
I have come all this way eager for you
Without shoes or shawl
I want you to laugh
To kill all your worries
To love you
To nourish you
Oh the sweet bitterness
I will soothe you and heal you
I will bring you roses
I too have been covered with thorns



BODY SHOP
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald, Larry Griffin Jr., Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

With all these curves we might need
To have the breaks looked at
So pop the hood and see what's good
I need a tune-up bad
My pressure's low, I'm on a roll
But my transmission's blown
I heard a thump, and then a knock
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
CHORUS:
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line...
You can polish the headlights
You can smooth out the fender
You can start the ignition
We can go on a bender
Stuck to the seat, our body heat
What will you do with this ass
Let's shift the gears, get outta here
We're stepping on the gas
We gotta bounce, we're going fast
Let's let the seat go back
You take the wheel
I'll sit on top
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop...
CHORUS:
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line...
Overheating the engine
Might be blowin' a gasket
Tighten up the suspension
And you don't have to ask it
I hear you work at a body shop
I hear you work at a body shop
I would drive to the ends of the earth for you
Jumpstart my heart, you know what you gotta do
I would ride through the dark of the night with you
Cross my heart and hope to die, it's true...
CHORUS:
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line
You can keep it overnight
You can do whatever you like
Working overtime
Working on the line
You can polish the headlights, ahhhh
You can smooth out the fender, ahhhh
You can start the ignition, ahhhh
We can go on a bender, ahhhh
Ah, ah, you work at a body shop...
 



BORN TO BE ALIVE (MADONNA'S BACKING VOCALS)
Written by Patrick Hernandez (1978)

We were born to be alive
We were born to be alive
Born, born to be alive (born to be alive)
You see we're born, born, born, born to be alive
People ask me why
I never find a place to stop
And settle down, down, down
But I never wanted all the things
That people need to find their life, life, life
You see we're born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
You see we're born, born, born
It's good to be alive, to be alive, to be alive
It's good to be alive, to be alive, to be alive
It's good to be alive
Times was on my side when I was runnin'in the street
It was no bind, bind, bind
A suitcase and an old guitar and
It's all I need to occupy my
A mind like mine
You see we're born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
You see we're born, born, born
You see we're born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
You see we're born, born, born
You see we're born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
You see we're born, born, born
Born to be alive
You see we're born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
You see we're born, born, born, born to be alive



BORROWED TIME
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

Do we need to start a war?
Do we need to take the sign?
If we open up our eyes
Realize that we are blind
Is it all worth fighting for
It all comes down to
Who's wrong or right
Who's black or white
It doesn't matter what you're bleeding for
Straight or bi
Your God or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all
Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed...
Do we need to build a bomb?
Do we need to fire a gun?
If you have to stand your ground
It's a war that can't be won
Is it all worth dying for
It all comes down to
Who's rich or poor
Virgin or whore
It doesn't matter what you're praying for
Death, alive
Your truth or mine
It doesn't matter underneath it all
Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed...



BROKEN (I'M SORRY)
Written by Madonna and Paul Oakenfold
CELEBRATION ALBUM DEMO (2009)

(Don't you feel sorry, don't you feel sorry...)
Broken like a crooked smile
A little hunched over but I walked that mile
I've woken from a fuzzy dream
You never would believe the things that I have seen
Don't you feel sorry for me
'Cause I'm right where the universe wants me to be
A lesson that I needed to learn
But that doesn't mean that it doesn't burn
CHORUS:
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry for me
'Cause I won't change my story
Don't take all my glory
Don't you feel sorry for me...
Tied up with leather and rope
A little bit of medicine to give me hope
I'm inky like a smoking gun
It's gonna take a while to heal the damage done
Don't you feel sorry for me
'Cause I'm right where the universe wants me to be
A lesson that I needed to learn (A lesson that I needed to learn)
But that doesn't mean that it doesn't burn
CHORUS:
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry for me
'Cause I won't change my story
Don't take all my glory
Don't you feel sorry for me...
A lesson that I needed to learn...
No pain, no gain, no defective parts
No dirty business, no forgiveness, no broken heart...
Ahhh...ahhh...
(Don't you feel sorry)
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry for me
'Cause I won't change my story
Don't take all my glory
Don't you feel sorry for me
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry
Don't you feel sorry for me
'Cause I won't change my story
Don't take all my glory
Don't you feel sorry for me...

Blessed I am, bless I will
I'm the one, I can still

All this, misery and hate
Take me by the hand, lead me down the road
Loosen my grip and lighten my load
Help me take the path less traveled by
Help me understand the reasons why

Dear father, forgive me
I don't know what I've done
Dear father, please guide and protect me
I'll return when my battle is won...
Dear father...
Blessed you are, bless you will

Help me understand all the reasons why

Without your help, dear father...
Without your help, dear father...
Without your help, dear father...
Without your help, dear father...

In the dark
No one to comfort me
Who listens to my heart
Take me by the hand, lead me down the road
Loosen my grip and lighten my load
Help me take the path less traveled by
Help me understand all the reasons why

I don't know what I've done
Dear father, please guide and protect me
I'll return when my battle is won
Without your help, dear father...



DEVIL PRAY
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

Take my sins and wash them away
Teach me how to pray
I've been stranded here in the dark
Take these walls away
I've been swimming in the ocean
'Til I almost drowned
Give me something I can believe in
Teach me how to pray
And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whisky
Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid
Forever be lost with no way home
CHORUS:
Yeah we can run and we can hide
But we won't find the answers
If you go down and you'll get help along the way
But if you want to save your soul
Then we could travel altogether
And make the devil pray...
Mother Mary, can't you help me
Cause I've gone astray
All the angels that were around me
Have all flown away
The ground beneath my feet's getting warmer
Lucifer is near
Holding on, but I'm getting weaker
Watch me disappear
And we can do drugs
And we can smoke weed
And we can drink whisky
Yeah we can get high
And we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue
And we can do E
And we can drop acid
Forever been lost with no way home
CHORUS:
Yeah we can run and we can hide
But we won't find the answers
If you go down and you'll get help along the way
But if you wanna save your soul
Then we could travel altogether
And make the devil pray...
Oohh sing Hallelujah
Oohh save my soul
Oohh the devil's here to fool ya
Until my story's told
I said oohh sing Hallelujah
Oohh save my soul
Oohh the devil's here to fool ya
Until my story's told...



EACH TIME YOU BRAKE MY HEART (Nick Kamen feat. Madonna)
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray
TRUE BLUE ALBUM DEMO (1986)

Each time you break my heart...
Each time you break my heart...
I know how it feels to be the talk of the town
I'm not gonna let you go and run around
I need to know that you'll be true to me
'Cause that's the way it's got to be
Why can't you give your promise to me
Is love so blind that you cannot see
I'm trying hard not to walk out the door
Know that I, oh, know that I can't take no more
CHORUS:
Each time you break my heart
I try to put my pride aside
Each time you break my heart
A little voice inside me cries...
No matter what you do or say
I'm gonna love you, I'm gonna love you anyway
And if you're so sure that I'm not your kind
How come you can't just walk away
In the beginning we were nothing but glad
Those were the best days that we ever had
There's no compassion, all your warmth is gone
Tell me how, oh, how can I keep holding on
CHORUS:
Each time you break my heart
I try to put my pride aside
Each time you break my heart
A little voice inside me cries
I see the look in your eyes
I know you're hurting inside
Let me try
To make you love me again
I'll say that I knew you when
You were mine
You were mine
Each time, oh yeah
In the beginning we were nothing but glad
Those were the best days that we ever had
There's no compassion, all your warmth is gone
Tell me how, oh, how can I keep holding on
I see the look in your eyes
I know you're hurting inside
Let me try
To make you love me again
I'll say that I knew you when
You were mine
You were mine
CHORUS:
Each time you break my heart
I try to put my pride aside
Each time you break my heart
A little voice inside me cries
Each time you break my heart again
Well I can say I knew you when (each time)
You were mine
Break my heart
Don't break my heart
(repeat and fade)

FREEDOM
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

Every revolution starts inside a broken heart
Every new beginning starts when something falls apart
Can't you hear a voice inside that's calling out your name
What you risk is what you learn, nothing is in vain
CHORUS:
Freedom...
Freedom...
Freedom...
Freedom...
Learn to live your life in the pursuit of happiness
Never take for granted, freedom is a privilege
Prison is a state of mind we build around ourselves
Take responsability, you can't blame someone else
CHORUS:
Freedom...
Freedom...
Freedom...
Freedom...
We all need a hero
Are you willing to fight for what you believe in
We all need a hero
Are you willing to die for what you believe in
I walk in the footsteps of giants
Remember a man who had a dream
I stay in the shadow of those who gave their lives
So we can be free...
Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you
Be the change you wanna see in the world (freedom)
You cannot, you cannot blame what you see happening in the world to anybody else (freedom)
It's time that we all stand together (freedom)
One for all and all for one (freedom)
We all play the same part (freedom)
We all want to be loved (freedom)
I want to start a revolution of love
I want to start a revolution of love
Freedom...

Nick Scotti & Madonna:
Yeah
You get under my skin
When I'm next to you
You get over
Every little thing you do, I...
Nick Scotti:
I was thinking that you never tried to hurt me
Never wanted something from me, tried to warn me
But you didn't really want me but I want you
'Cause you haunt me and I felt it from the start
You're going to break my heart
So I tried to play the part
And I knew I had to choose
I've got nothing left to lose
Might as well just tell the truth
Nick Scotti & Madonna:
CHORUS:
You get under my skin
When I'm next to you
You get over
Every little thing you do
I can't get with it
Can't put the blame on you
'Cause you get under my skin
I can't get over you...
Nick Scotti:
I was hoping, I was dreaming that I'd wake up
Think about it and I found that I had made up
But my heartbeat tells me it's not true, I want you
Gotta have you, tell me why can't we just start
You want to break my heart
Now you're underneath my skin
And I feel like it's a sin
To let love walk away so fast
I'm not your first, won't be your last
Nick Scotti & Madonna:
CHORUS:
You get under my skin
When I'm next to you
You get over
Every little thing you do
I can't get with it
Can't put the blame on you
'Cause you get under my skin
I can't get over you...
Nick Scotti & Madonna:
Get up, get over, get under
Oh baby you hit me like thunder
Get over, get under, get into
To love you is almost a sin to
Get up, get over, get under
Oh baby you hit me like thunder
Get over, get under, get into
To love you is almost a sin to...
Start...
You want to break my heart
Now you're underneath my skin
And I feel like it's a sin
To let love walk away so fast
I'm not your first, won't be your last
Nick Scotti & Madonna:
CHORUS:
You get under my skin

GET STUPID
Written by Pharrell Williams and Madonna
STICKY & SWEET TOUR VIDEO INTERLUDE (2008)

(Who is the master and who is the slave?)
Tick tock tick tock tick tock...
(Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid,...)
Get up, it's time
Your life, your world
Get up, it's time
Your life, your choice
It's time for you to read the signs
Your world, your choice
You don't have the luxury of time
Tick tock tick tock tick tock...
(Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid,...)
Get up, it's time
Your life, your world
Get up, it's time
Your life, your choice
You have got to say what's on your mind

GOD IS LOVE
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

If God is love and love is God
Then why you're acting like it's not
Everyone's afraid to change
Different doesn't make it strange
Who decides what's right or wrong
Religion shouldn't separate
Or tell us who we're supposed to hate
We can't deny the way we're made
CHORUS:
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
In what, in what, what you believe in
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
The truth is like the air you're breathing
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
In what, what you, what you believe in
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
Never stop, never stop...
If God is love and love is God
No magician sitting in the clouds
Never let a set of rules
Determine what you say or do
Red's the colour we all bleed
'Cause I'll agree to disagree
It's in every Holy Book
Love your neighbour like you should
CHORUS:
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
In what, in what, what you believe in
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
The truth is like the air you're breathing
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
In what, what you, what you believe in
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing...
Don't you ever stop...
Moses had to lead the people
Couldn't be slaves forever in Egypt
Jesus didn't die for your sins
So you could treat other people like shit
Muhammad heard Gabriel calling
Have to save the people from falling
All the prophets say the same words
God is love and love should come first
CHORUS:
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
In what, in what, what you believe in
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
The truth is like the air you're breathing
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
In what, what you, what you believe in
Never stop, never stop, never stop believing
Don't you ever stop...



GONE, GONE, GONE
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO (1998)

Needing, needing
All at once goes to silence
Begging, pleading
No more emotional violence
The withdrawal into pain
The result to never need again
Is this love?...
I think not...
I want out...
CHORUS:
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone (this love affair)
It's so sad (this love affair)...
What we had...
Is gone, gone, gone...
Bleeding, bleeding
Then comes the recognition
Anger seething
I don't need your permission
And I don't know who you are
And this thing has gone too far
Is this love?...
I think not...
I want out...
CHORUS:
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone (this love affair)
It's so sad (this love affair)...
What we had...
Is gone, gone, gone...
You're in too deep
You cannot keep
The promises you made
Our happiness was free
The end of love
The end of the dream...
Gone, gone, gone...
And I don't know who you are
And this thing has gone too far
Is this love?...
I think not...
I want out...
CHORUS:
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone (this love affair)
It's so sad (this love affair)...
What we had...
Is gone, gone, gone...
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone
This love affair is over
Gone, gone, gone



GOODBYE TO INNOCENCE
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone
EROTICA ALBUM DEMO (1992)

I don't wanna say goodbye...
There are some who believe that I owe them something
But they're wrong, I owe nothing to no one but myself
And there are some who say they created me
But only my parents will have that acclaim
I took it from there, I am to blame
Say goodbye to anonymity
I have to, have to, have to say goodbye
To privacy, but most of all
CHORUS:
To innocence, to innocence
To innocence, to innocence...
My life is not a game that I play to entertain you
And if you can do it better, then you're welcome to my fame
I'm not gonna waste my time correcting myths and rumors
You believe what you wanna believe
Say goodbye to anonymity
I have to, have to, have to say goodbye
To privacy, but most of all
CHORUS:
To innocence, to innocence...
To innocence, to innocence...
I don't wanna say goodbye...
I don't need a reason to cry...
Kinda makes me wanna
Kinda makes me hafta
Stop and think about it
Stop and think about it
Stop and think about it
Stop and think about it
Do I want to?
I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting down and up)
Up-up, d-d-down, up-up-up
I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting up and down)
I don't (getting down and up)
Up-up, d-d-down, up-up-up
Listen up...
It always comes down to this
It always comes down to this
Some people have a snake at the base of their spine
That would suck out your life, that would take all your time
They're called feeders
They're not believers but you must not fear it
They're takers
You know you better stop, stop and think about it
You know you better stop, stop and think about it
You know you better stop, stop and think about it
You know you better stop, stop and think about it
CHORUS:
Your innocence, your innocence
Your innocence, your innocence
I don't wanna say goodbye to innocence
I don't need a reason to cry, innocence
Hold on to your innocence
Hold on (hold on, hold on), hold on to innocence
Hold on
Stop and think about it, say goodbye, think about it
Stop and think about it, say goodbye, think about it
Stop and think about it, say goodbye, think about it...



GRAFFITI HEART
Written by Madonna, Maureen McDonald, Tobias Gad and Larry Darnell Griffin
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

If graffiti on the wall changed anything at all
Then it would be illegal
If scars could go away
What would your body say
Don't ever hide your feelings
Ohh don't ever try to take my freedom
Ohh your imperfections, this world needs them
CHORUS:
What do you got, show me your Basquiat
He didn't keep it all to himself
Even with Keith out on the street, he died fighting
So you can do it as well
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart...
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart...
Ouohhh...
Ouohhh, yeah
Ouohhh...
Ouohhh, yeah
Frida showed her feelings
Painting from the ceiling
Back in the beginning
Nothing's what it seems
She didn't paint all her dreams
Just did her own reality
Ohh don't ever try to take our freedom
Ohh your imperfections, this world needs them
CHORUS:
What do you got, show me your Basquiat
He didn't keep it all to himself
Even with Keith out on the street, he died fighting
So you can do it as well
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart...
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart...
Ouohhh...
Ouohhh, yeah
Ouohhh...
Ouohhh, yeah
If graffiti on the wall changed anything at all
Then it would be illegal...

REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

Cut me down the middle
Fucked me up a little
You said I was your Queen
I tried to give you everything
And now you want your freedom
You got just what you came for
A bit of fame and fortune
Now I'm no longer needed
You said it was over, wanted it to end
Then you had the nerve to say that we could still be friends
You had a few secrets I was never told
Now everyone's talking and I'm the last to know
CHORUS:
Now I'm in the middle of HeartBreakCity (HeartBreakCity)
Cause I'm in the middle of a world not pretty (world not pretty)
Your clever game got the best of me (best of me)
But you ain't gonna get the rest of me (rest of me)
Cause I'm in HeartBreakCity...
Torn me into pieces
Didn't have no damn reason
I let you in my house
You helped yourself to everything
And left me with your mess
I curse the day we met
Your memory is haunting me
I wish I could forget
You said it was over, wanted it to end
Then you had the nerve to say that we could still be friends
You had a few secrets I was never told
Now everyone's talking and I'm the last to know
CHORUS:
I'm in the middle of HeartBreakCity (HeartBreakCity)
Now I'm in the middle of a world not pretty (world not pretty)
Now I'm in the middle of HeartBreakCity (HeartBreakCity)
Cause I'm in the middle of a world not pretty (world not pretty)
Your clever game got the best of me (best of me)
But you ain't gonna get the rest of me (rest of me)
Cause I'm in HeartBreakCity...
And it's not that pretty...
And it still feel shitty...



HEAVEN
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

My heart is a wasteland
My soul is a ghosttown
This bed is sinking sand
And we're both going down
Your words are like arrows
They're aimed at the core of all my doubt
And the battle since the day my heart fell out
Can I undo every wrong
If I promise I'll be strong
CHORUS:
Angels cry, throw the halos from the sky
Angels fall, from heaven
Angels sigh, make the sun refuse to shine
Angels fall, from heaven
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)...
My mind is a war zone
The silence hits harder than grenades
I never meant to put a noose around your faith
Our beautiful kingdom once was a paradise we reigned
You took my crown, I broke you down
We're both to blame
Can I undo every wrong
If I promise to be strong
CHORUS:
Angels cry, throw the halos from the sky
Angels fall, from heaven
Angels sigh, make the sun refuse to shine
Angels fall, from heaven
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)
When we fall out of love (love, love, love)
When we fall out of love
(Angels cry, angels sigh, angels die, angels die)
(You're my angel, you're my angel)

Nobody has it better than we do
Uh huh
One thing I don't understand
Why don't we help more people 'cause we can
Uh huh
(All around the world, all around the world,...)
CHORUS:
Why are we separated?
Defined by our greed and hatred
Why aren't we all united?
I'm so sick and tired of fighting
Why aren't we all together?
Let's end this fight forever
Why are we still divided?
I'm so sick and tired of fighting...
How many tragedies will we see before we come together
Uh huh
It's easy to forget we have a power to make things better
Uh huh
I have a dream
But dreams are not for free
We all need to change
Or just repeat history (just repeat history, just repeat history,...)
(All around the world, all around the world,...)
CHORUS:
Why are we separated?
Defined by our greed and hatred
Why aren't we all united?
I'm so sick and tired of fighting
Why aren't we all together?
Let's end this fight forever
Why are we still divided?
I'm so sick and tired of fighting
(Just repeat history, just repeat history,...)



HOLY WATER
Written by Madonna, Martin Kierszenbaum, Natalia Kills, Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

I can give you everything that you want
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
You can't buy this at no luxury store
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
There's a place you gotta go
Before I let you take it all
It's like a drug, it should be illegal
Baby you should get down low
And drink my precious alcohol
You look so thirsty, I think you need it
CHORUS:
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, kiss it better...
I can teach you all the things you don't know
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
It's rare like mink, it's something you wanna own
(Bitch get off my pole, bitch get off my pole)
There's something you gotta hit
It's sacred and immaculate
I can let you in heaven's door
I promise you it's not a sin
Find salvation deep within
We can do it here on the floor
CHORUS:
Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water
Make it wetter, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, make it wetter
Don't it taste like holy water
Kiss it better, kiss it better...
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Bless yourself and genuflect)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(If you like it, please confess)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water
(Bless yourself and genuflect)
Don't it taste like holy water, like holy water
Don't it taste like holy water...

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER ALBUM DEMO (1995)

Don't run away, come closer
I'll take you away from sadness
Let me lift you out of the darkness
Let me sooth your soul
The shadow of your smile stays on my mind
And every song I hear reminds me of you

Every breath, every step, I'm closer to you
Every day, every day, everything, everything reminds me of you

Let me fill your heart up with gladness
Let me take you there

Everything I do, I'm thinking of you

I SURRENDER DEAR (feat. Jennifer Grey)
Written by Harry Barris, Gordon Clifford, and Bing Crosby
BLOODHOUNDS OF BROADWAY FILM (1989)

Madonna:
Pride's that splendid liar
Sworn enemy of love
Jennifer:
Kept my lips from saying
Things my heart was thinking of
Madonna:
But now my pride you've humbled
I've cast it to the winds
Jennifer Grey:
Broken
Beaten
Sick at heart
Madonna & Jennifer:
Our compassion begins
Madonna:
We played the game
Of stay away
But it costs more
Than I can pay
Without you I can't make my way
I surrender dear
Jennifer Grey:
I may seem proud
I may act gay
It's just a pose
I'm not that way
Cause deep down in my heart I say
I surrender dear
Madonna:
Little mean things we were doing
Must have been part of the game
Lending a spice to the wooing
Madonna & Jennifer Grey:
But I don't care who's to blame
When stars appear
When stars appear
And shadows fall
And shadows fall
Why then you'll hear
Why then you'll hear
My poor heart call
To you my love, my life, my all
I surrender dear...



ICONIC

REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

If you try and fail, get up again
Destiny will choose you in the end
If you don't make the choice
And you don't use your voice
Someone else will speak for you instead
What you want is just within your reach
But you gotto practice what you preach
You pay with sweat and tears
And overcome your fears
Never let the fire inside you leave
CHORUS:
"I can't", "Icon", two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star
Show the world who you are, who you are
Yeah, there's another part of you no one sees
There's a burning fire that's underneath
Baby don't you know you were meant to be
Born to be, meant to be
Iconic...
Iconic...
Iconic...
Iconic...
Tell me I'm no good and I'll be great
Say I have to fight and I can't wait
Standing in the wings
A butterfly that stings
I will rise above 'cause it's my fate
CHORUS:
"I can't", "Icon", two letters apart
One step away from being lost in the dark
Just shine your light like a beautiful star
Show the world who you are, who you are

IF YOU FORGET ME (Poem read by Madonna)
Written by Pablo Neruda
THE POSTMAN (IL POSTINO) FILM SOUNDTRACK (1995)

I want you to know one thing
You know how this is
If I look at the crystal moon
At the red branch of the slow autumn at my window
If I touch near the fire the impalpable ash
Or the wrinkled body of the log
Everything carries me to you
As if everything that exists
Aromas
Light
Metals
Were little boats that sail toward those isles of yours
That wait for me
Well now
If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
Little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you
If you think it long and mad
The wind of banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of the heart
Where I have roots
Remember
That on that day
At that hour
I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land
But
If each day
Each hour
You feel that you are destined for me
With implacable sweetness
If each day a flower climbs up to your lips to seek me
Ahh my love
Ahh my own
In me all that fire is repeated
In me nothing is extinguished or forgotten
My love feeds on your love beloved
And as long as you live
It will be in your arms without leaving mine



IF YOU GO AWAY (NE ME QUITTE PAS)
Written by Jacques Brel
HELLO SUCKERS! MUSICAL DEMO (2003)

If you go away on this summer day
Then you might as well take the sun away
All the birds that flew in the summer sky
When our love was new and our hearts were high
When the day was young and the night was long
And the moon stood still for the night bird's song
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
But if you stay, I'll make you a day
Like no day has been, or will be again
We'll sail the sun, we'll ride on the rain
We'll talk to the trees and worship the wind
Then if you go, I'll understand
Leave me just enough love to fill up my hand
If you go away, if you go away, if you go away
If you go away, as I know you must
There'll be nothing left in this world to trust
Just an empty room full of empty space
Like the empty look I see on your face
I'd have been the shadow of your dog
If you thought it might keep me by your side
If you go away, if you go away, please don't go away



ILLUMINATI
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald, Larry Griffin Jr., Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

It's not Jay-Z and Beyoncé
It's not Nicki or Lil Wayne
It's not Oprah and Obama
The Pope and Rihanna
Queen Elisabeth or Kanye
It's not pentagrams or witchcraft
It's not triangles or stacks of cash
Black magic or Gaga
Gucci or Prada
Riding on the Golden Calf
CHORUS:
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
That's what it is, the Truth and the Light
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
Nothing to hide, the secret's inside
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati...
It's the Enlightenment that started it all
The Founding Fathers wrote it down on the wall
And now the media's misleading us all
Turned right and to wrong
It's time to dance and turn this dark into somethin'
So let the fire burn, this music is bumpin'
We're gonna live forever, love never dies
It starts tonight
Behind the curtain of the New World Order
It's not platinum encrypted corners
It's not Isis or the Phoenix, Pyramids of Egypt
Don't make it into something sordid
It's not Steve Jobs or Bill Gates
It's not the Google of United States
It's not Bieber or Lebron
Clinton or Obama
Or anyone you'd love to hate
CHORUS:
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
That's what it is, the Truth and the Light
The All-Seeing Eye is watching tonight
Nothing to hide, the secret's inside
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati...
You know that everything that glitters ain't gold
So let the music take you out of control
It's time to feel it in your body and soul
Come on let's go...
We're gonna dance and turn the dark into somethin'
So let the fire burn, this music is bumpin'
We're gonna live forever, love never dies
It starts tonight...
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
It's like everybody in this party's shining like Illuminati
 



I'M IN LOVE WITH LOVE
Written by Madonna, Mirwais and Monte Pittman
UNRELEASED RE-INVENTION TOUR ERA DEMO (2004)

Is it the rain or is it the weather?
Am I insane to wanna keep it together?
Is it the moon that's affecting my brain?
Is it my prayers that never made it to heaven?
CHORUS:
I'm in love with love
Anyone can see?
Angels up above are watching over me...
Is it the sunlight that cleaned the seasons?
Monday through Sunday I'm looking for reasons
Is there an angel watching over my shoulder?
Tricking my senses or giving me shelter
CHORUS:
I'm in love with love
Anyone can see?
Angels up above are watching over me
I'm in love with love...
Is it the rain, is it the weather?
Angels up above
Is it my prayers keeping us together?...
Is it the rain or is it the weather?
Am I insane to wanna keep it together?
Is it the moon that's affecting my brain?
Is it my prayers that never made it to heaven?
CHORUS:
I'm in love with love
Anyone can see?
Angels up above are watching over me...
I'm in love with love
Anyone can see?
Angels up above are watching over me
Affection is perfection
When it's done with ease
I'm in love with love...
I'm in love with love
Is it the rain or is it the weather?
Angels up above
Is it my prayers keeping us together?



IMAGINE (JOHN LENNON COVER BY MADONNA)
Written by John Lennon
I'M GOING TO TELL YOU A SECRET ALBUM (2005) & TSUNAMI AID BENEFIT CONCERT (2005)

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one



INFINITY (EARLY VERSION OF GIVE IT 2 ME)
Written by Timbaland and Madonna
HARD CANDY ALBUM DEMO (2008)

Anytime is not ever, now
So what are you waiting for
Why wait for someone to show you how
They may want it but you want it more
No boundaries, no limits
If there's excitement, then i'm in it
If it's against the law, arrest me
If you can handle it, undress me
Give me a record, I'll break it
Give me a chance to go and I'll take it
No beginning, no ending, on and on
Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath
I can go on and on, on and on
When the lights go down and there's no one left
I can go on and on, on and on
CHORUS:
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity
On and on...
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity
On and on...
They say a good thing never lasts
What goes up is gonna have to fall
But if you care too much what people said
Then you wouldn't amount to much at all
No boundaries, no limits
If there's excitement, then i'm in it
If it's against the law, arrest me
If you can handle it, undress me
Give me a record, I'll break it
Give me a chance to go and I'll take it
No beginning, no ending, on and on
Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath
I can go on and on, on and on
When the lights go down and there's no one left
I can go on and on, on and on
CHORUS:
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity
On and on...
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity
On and on...
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity
On and on...
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity
On and on...

IS THIS LOVE (BON D'ACCORD)
Written by Madonna
AMERICAN LIFE ALBUM DEMO (2003) & HELLO SUCKERS! MUSICAL (2004)

How can I be sure you're telling me the truth?
In this house of games you never you show your cards
You claim madness it's become convenient
I don't wanna hear your angry words again
You hear voices taunting you to leave me
Then you're sorry you hold me in your arms
You have demons, nothing can control them
Who can blame you if you're not in charge?
CHORUS:
Is this love?, I think not
I wanna get off this merry-go-round
History will repeat itself
And I won't let you take me down...
Treat me like a curse then tell me I'm your saviour
I'm living with the stranger I used to know so well
Waiting for your answer is a kind of torture
Could I grow accustomed to this kind of hell?
You hear voices taunting you to leave me
Then you're sorry you hold me in your arms
You have demons, nothing can control them
Who can blame you if you're not in charge?
CHORUS:
Is this life?, I think not
I wanna get off this merry-go-round
History will complete itself
And I won't let you take me down
I'd like to get to know you
You could warm up your hands on my heart
I've got so much to show you
But for now it's just, Bon D' Accord...

JOAN OF ARC
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald and Larry Griffin Jr.
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

Each time they take a photograph
I lose a part I can't get back
I wanna hide
This is the part where I detach
Each time they write a hateful word
Dragging my soul into the dirt
I wanna die
Never admitted but it hurts
CHORUS:
I don't wanna talk about it right now
Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
But I'm in the dark yeah
I can't be a superhero right now
Even hearts made out of steel can break down
You'll always be my soldier
I can depend on
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not going down
One little lie can ruin my day
Words are like weapons, they betray
When I am afraid
One word of kindness it can save me
CHORUS:
I don't wanna talk about it right now
Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
But I'm in the dark yeah
I can't be a superhero right now
Even hearts made out of steel can break down
You'll always be my soldier
I can depend on
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not going down
Being destructive isn't brave
They couldn't say it to my face
One day I won't care
But for the moment I'm not there
I'll just close my eyes and let you catch me now...
I don't wanna talk about it right now
Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet
But I'm in the dark uh yeah
I can't be a superhero right now
Even hearts made out of steel can break down
You'll always be my soldier
I can depend on
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not going down
Anything they did to me, said to me
Doesn't mean a thing cause you're here with me now
Even when the world turns its back on me
There could be a war but I'm not Joan of Arc...

 


JUST A DREAM (Donna DeLory feat. Madonna)
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
DONNA DELORY ALBUM (1992)

Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
I keep your photograph by my bed to remind me
That I was part of your life
I say my prayers to the sandman
That he'll find me fast asleep
Sleep has always been kind
And in my dreams you'll always be mine
But in the morning when I wake
I remember that my heart does ache
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
I admit that I did my bit to deceive you
But sometimes I was afraid
That this day would come
How could you just leave me all alone now
I have always been strong
So I know that I can go on
But right now I feel so dead inside
Oh sleep come to me, cause that's where I hide
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
All that I have, all that I ask
All my dreams, they fade so fast
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
And I want him, and I need him
I can't live and I'd die just to see him
Just to feel his hands on my face
Smell his skin, and his warm embrace
Cause it's all that I have
And it's fading so fast
Mmmm, mmmm
Uh, uh huh
Now I have always been strong
So I know that I can go on
But right now I feel so dead inside
Oh sleep come to me, cause that's where I hide
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
Was it just a dream?
Did I feel your devotion?
Dreams are never what they seem
Did we just go through the motions?
All that I have, all that I ask
All my dreams, they fade so fast
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
(Was it just a dream?)
And I want him, and I need him
I can't live and I'd die just to see him
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
(Was it just a dream?)
All that I have, all that I ask
All my dreams, they fade so fast
Don't wake me up, not today
All my dreams will fade away
(repeat and fade)

LA VIE EN ROSE (COVER BY MADONNA PERFORMED LIVE AT REBEL HEAR TOUR 2015/16)
Written by Édith Piaf, Louiguy, Marguerite Monnot

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens
Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose
Il me dit des mots d'amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose
Il est entré dans mon cœur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause
C'est lui pour moi
Moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l'a dit
L'a juré pour la vie
Et dès que je l'aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon cœur qui bat

LIKE A FLOWER
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO (1998)

There's a hole in my heart
No one else can fill it
There's a feeling I have
No one can replace
There's a taste in my mouth
No one else can give me
There's a song that I hear
No one can erase
Why would I want them to?
I'm still looking back at you
Why would I want them to be you?
CHORUS:
You'll always be a part of me
What you love can never let you go
You'll always be inside of me
Like a flower you grow...
There's a strange melody
Sends me straight to heaven
There's a voice in my head
No one else can hear
There's a prayer that I say
Always brings me closer
To the presence of you
To always have you near
No one can take your place
I'm still looking at your face
No one can take the place of you
CHORUS:
You'll always be a part of me
What you love can never let you go
You'll always be inside of me
Like a flower you grow
Like a flower you grow...
Why would I want them to?
I'm still looking back at you
Why would I want them to be you?
CHORUS:
You'll always be a part of me
What you love can never let you go
You'll always be inside of me
Like a flower you grow
You'll always be a part of me
What you love can never let you go
You'll always be inside of me
Like a flower you grow
Like a flower you grow...



LIKE AN ANGEL PASSING THROUGH MY ROOM (ABBA COVER BY MADONNA)
Written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus
MUISC ALBUM DEMO (2000)

Long awaited darkness falls
Casting shadows on the walls
In the twilight hour I am alone
Sitting near the fireplace
Dying embers warm my face
In this peaceful solitude
All the outside world subdued
Everything comes back to me again
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room...
Half awake and half in dreams
Seeing long forgotten scenes
So the present runs into the past
Now and then become entwined
Playing games within my mind
Like the embers as they die
Love was one prolonged good-bye
And it all comes back to me tonight
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room...
I close my eyes
And my twilight images go by
All too soon
Like an angel passing through my room...
Everything comes back to me again
In the gloom
Like an angel passing through my room...
I close my eyes
And my twilight images go by
All too soon
Like an angel passing through my room...



LIQUID LOVE
Written by Madonna and William Orbit
MUSIC ALBUM DEMO (2000)

Your love is like liquid
It fills me, it chills me
Can't hold it, control it
It runs from my touch
It slips through my fingers
The taste of it lingers
Your love is like liquid
I want it so much
CHORUS:
Liquid love
Pouring down like rain
Liquid love
Let it wash all over me...
Your love is like liquid
It drenches, it quenches
It drowns me, surrounds me
It lies on my skin
It flows through my veins
Just like warm summer rain
Yes, your love is like liquid
I feel it within
CHORUS:
Liquid love
Pouring down like rain
Liquid love
Let it wash all over me
Liquid love
Flowing through my veins...
Liquid love (love love love...)
Liquid love (love love love...)
My heart was frozen
Till you came and melted it
Now my heart is molted
Turning into...
CHORUS:
Liquid love
Pouring down like rain
Liquid love
Let it wash all over me
Liquid love
Flowing through my veins
Liquid love (liquid, liquid, liquid,...)
Liquid love
Pouring down like rain
Liquid love
Let it wash all over me
Liquid love
Flowing through my veins
Liquid love
Liquid love
Liquid love
Flowing through my veins...



LITTLE GIRL

Hey little girl
When you grow up
Don't make the same mistakes I did
Learn to say "no, I've had enough"
And nothing and no one can harm you
CHORUS:
Follow your heart

Little green
Wearing your crown
Leave all your sadness behind you
Don't waste your time suffering fools
One day Prince Charming will find you...

LIVING FOR LOVE
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad and Ariel Rechtshaid
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

First you love me and I let you in
Made me feel like I was born again
You empowered me, you made me strong
Built me up and I could do no wrong
I let down my guard
I fell into your arms
Forgot who I was
I didn't hear the alarms
Now I'm down on my knees
Alone in the dark
I was blind to your game
You fired a shot in my heart
Took me to heaven, let me fall down
Now that it's over, I'm gonna carry on
Lifted me up and watched me stumble
After the heartache I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up (love, lift me up)
Love's gonna lift me up (love, lift me up)
I could get caught up in bitterness
But I'm not dwelling on this crazy mess
I found freedom in the ugly truth
I deserve the best and it's not you
I picked up my crown
Put it back on my head
I can forgive
But I will never forget
Took me to heaven, let me fall down
Now that it's over I'm gonna carry on
Lifted me up and watched me stumble
After the heartache I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up
Love's gonna lift me up
Lord, Lord lift me
Lord, Lord lift me
God forgive me
I'm gonna carry on
Lord, Lord lift me
Lord, Lord lift me
God forgive me
'Cause love's gonna lift me up
Lord, Lord lift me
Lord, Lord lift me
God forgive me
'Cause love's gonna lift me up
Up up up up
Lord, lift me up up up up
Love's gonna lift me up...
'Cause love's gonna lift me up...
Living for love, living for love
Not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, I'm living for love
Not gonna stop
'Cause love's gonna lift me up 



LO QUE SIENTE LA MUJER (SPANISH VERSION OF WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR A GIRL)
Written by Madonna and Guy Sigsworth
WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR A GIRL MAXI-SINGLE (2000)

Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hear short
Wear shirts and boots
Cause it's okay to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
Because you think being a girl is degrading
But secretly
You'd love to know what it's like
Wouldn't you?
What it feels like for a girl
Deliciosa
Labio suave y rosa... Baby
Piel de miel, dulce y silenciosa
Te parece confundida
Su pasión esta escondida
Nunca sabes lo que va a decir
Cuando empieza a sonreir
CHORUS:
Quieres ver lo que siente la mujer?
Quieres ver y tratar de comprender?... la mujer...
Seductora pero nunca fácil... Baby
Misteriosamente dura y frágil
Lágrimas que no te enseña
Su dolor no deja huella
No la trates ya de impresionar solo déjate llevar...
CHORUS:
Quieres ver lo que siente la mujer?
Quieres ver y tratar de comprender?.. la mujer
Quieres ver lo que siente la mujer?
Quieres ver y tratar de comprender?
Lo que siente la mujer...
Te parece confundida
Su pasión esta escondida
Nunca sabes lo que va a decir
Cuando empieza a sonreír
CHORUS:
Quieres ver lo que siente la mujer?
Quieres ver y tratar de comprender?.. la mujer
Quieres ver lo que siente la mujer?
Quieres ver y tratar de comprender?
La mujer... comprender...
Quieres ver?...
Quieres ver?...
Quieres ver lo que siente la mujer?
Y tratar de comprender?...



LOVE WON'T WAIT
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone
BEDTIME STORIES ALBUM DEMO (1994)

When I first saw your face
I knew that I couldn't hesitate
You said, 'Baby, don't go too fast
If we do then it may not last.'
Time went on and I waited for you
I didn't know what else I could do
I thought that we'd always be together
You said, 'Hold on, it just gets better.'
And I believed you, I kept holding on
You think that I could never leave you
You think I'm not that strong, you know
CHORUS:
Love won't wait (love won't wait)
Forever and a day (love won't wait)
Love must live in the here and now
Don't ask me how I know (love won't wait)...
So here I am with my heart on my sleeve
You said, 'Baby put your trust in me'
But I've come to the end of the line
And you have taken up all of my precious time
I need to be something special to you
Everybody is somebody's fool
I won't be a fool, no you got me all wrong
You don't know what you had til it's gone
And I believed you, I kept holding on
You think that I could never leave you
You think I'm not that strong, you know
CHORUS:
Love won't wait (love won't wait)
Forever and a day (love won't wait)
Love must live in the here and now
Don't ask me how I know (love won't wait)
Love takes time (love takes time)
And you've been taking too long
Time never waited for anyone
Don't wait too long or I'll be gone (love won't wait)...
There wasn't anything that I wouldn't do
You left me on you even said, 'I love you.'
How can we go on when it's tearing us apart?
Are you going to break my heart?
'Cos I believed you
I kept holding on
You think that I could never leave you
You think I'm not that strong, you're wrong
(Love won't wait, love won't wait) uhhhhhh...
CHORUS:
Love won't wait (love won't wait)
Forever and a day (love won't wait)
Love must live in the here and now
Don't ask me how I know (love won't wait)
Love takes time (love takes time)
And you've been taking too long
Time never waited for anyone
Don't wait too long or I'll be gone (love won't wait)
How much longer can I wait for you?
Can I keep holding on?
I've got to be strong, got to say goodbye
Love won't wait
How much longer can I wait for you, hesitate for you baby?
I've got to be strong, got to say goodbye
Goodbye...

MISS YOU
Written by Madonna & Mirwais Ahmadzaï
AMERICAN LIFE ALBUM DEMO (2003)

Miss you most of all
When all those autumn leaves start to fall
Drifting by my window
They come up over the wall
Why does a good thing have to do end?
Can't see it happen where and when
Cycle of change can be so cruel
I've got no one to blame
I'm just a fool, you know
CHORUS:
Hold on they keep on telling me
Something's good is gonna come
Bread and gold has put its spell on me
And old man winter's gonna come
You know he keeps on blocking off the sun...
Miss you most of all
When they burn those bonfires tall
Smoke and ashes fill the air and the
Harvesters are everywhere
No time to waste, let's drink the wine
Don't let the fruit rot on the vine
When the sun is big and fiery it goes, you know
That is the time I miss you the most, they say
CHORUS:
Hold on they keep on telling me
Something's good is gonna come
Bread and gold has put its spell on me
And old man winter's gonna come
You know he keeps on blocking off the sun...
Cold wind is howling and there's
Dampness creeps in our bones
Seasons change, why didn't we
Come on bring that summer back to me...
CHORUS:
Hold on they keep on telling me
Something's good is gonna come
Bread and gold has put its spell on me
And old man winter's gonna come
You know he keeps on blocking off the sun
Tell me why does he always have to come?




NEVER LET YOU GO
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

This isn't what it seems
Feels like I'm living inside a dream
But I'm just dancing
Dancing with myself
You're from a different time
And I know that you can read my mind
But I'm still dancing
Dancing with myself
I'm not alone
I'll be dancing with this vision
I've made my decision
Won't let you go
And my favourite part is locked inside my heart
Holding you close
Because your energy is still a part of me
You know I loved you the most
I'm not ashamed to say I'll never let you go
CHORUS:
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never let you...
I feel your phantom touch
It's a pleasure I need so much
Let's go dancing
Dancing with myself
Heaven's too far away
And my desire will make you stay
I'll keep on dancing
Dancing with myself
I'm not alone
I'll be dancing with this vision
I've made my decision
Won't let you go
And my favourite part is locked inside my heart
Holding you close
Because your energy is still a part of me
You know I loved you the most
I'm not ashamed to say
I'll never let you go
CHORUS:
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go

Let you go
I'll never let you go...



NO SUBSTITUTE FOR LOVE
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO (1998)

I traded fame for love without a second thought
It all became a silly game, some things cannot be bought
I got exactly what I asked for, wanted it so badly
Went running, rushing back for more
I suffered fools so gladly
And now I find, I changed my mind
I found a new religion
CHORUS:
Face the truth
No substitute for love
I will wait for you
No substitute for love..
I travelled 'round the world, looking for a home
I found myself in crowded rooms, feeling so alone
I had so many lovers who settled for the thrill
Of basking in my spotlight
I never felt fulfilled
And now I find, I changed my mind
I found a new religion
CHORUS:
Face the truth
No substitute for love
I will wait for you
No substitute for love
Face the truth
No substitute for love...
I've had a change of heart
I'll make a brand new start
No famous faces, far off places, trinkets I can't buy
No handsome stranger, heady danger, drug that I can't try
No ferris wheel, no heart to steal, laughter in the dark
No one night stand, no far off land, fire that I can't spark
CHORUS:
Face the truth
No substitute for love
I will wait for you
No substitute for love
Face the truth
No substitute for love
Substitute for love
Face the truth
No substitute for love
I will wait for you
No substitute for love
Face the truth
No substitute for love...
No substitute for love...



NOTHING LASTS FOREVER
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

Come, come into my arms
Don't refuse me, the world will fall apart
If you could see, see into my eyes
You'd be with me, in this paradise
Don't wanna live for tomorrow
Let's live tonight like it is the last
CHORUS:
Can you love me like the world is ending, hold me like it's Armageddon?
Don't stop 'cause nothing lasts forever
You can save me, never let me go
And make me indestructible
Nothing lasts forever...
Take, take me to the stars
Universal love is what we are
Trust me, put your hand in mine
I'll be with you 'til the end of time
Don't wanna live for tomorrow
Let's live tonight like it is the last
CHORUS:
Can you love me like the world is ending, hold me like it's Armageddon?
Don't stop 'cause nothing lasts forever
You can save me, never let me go
And make me indestructible
Nothing lasts forever...
Can you love me like the world is ending, hold me like it's Armageddon?
Don't stop 'cause nothing lasts forever
You can save me, never let me go
And make me indestructible
Nothing lasts forever...

Two walk through the fire
And just go through with it
To cancel your doubt
And fly into the sun
To go without
And feel like you're the lucky one
The mad things we do for love
We're caught in a world of lies
I just had the strangest dream
We won't get to do this twice
CHORUS:
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Jas kana medess medess anda latay
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Giascanamés del balla late...
The madness of love
And where we'll go for it
To travel the world
And lose control for it
To give it away
And never hesitate
Just knowing one day
It will reciprocate
The mad things we do for love
The heavens are falling through
I'm caught in the world of lie
There's nothing that I can do
CHORUS:
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Jas kana medess medess anda latay
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Giascanamés del balla late
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Jas kana medess medess anda latay
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Giascanamés del balla late...
It's a mad mad world
All the things you make me feel
It's a mad mad world
Had a drink so I could forget
It's a mad mad world
All the noise inside of my head
It's a mad mad world
I would never change this moment
It's a mad mad world
All the things you make me feel
It's a mad mad world
Had a drink so I could forget
It's a mad mad world
All the noise inside of my head
It's a mad mad world
I would never change this moment
CHORUS:
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Jas kana medess medess anda latay
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Giascanamés del balla late
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Jas kana medess medess anda latay
Lela lela lela lela pala tute
Giascanamés del balla late...

PROMISES, PROMISES (Nacked Eyes feat. Madonna)
Written by Peter James Byrne and Rob Fisher
NACKED EYES - BURNING BRIDGES ALBUM (1983)

Never had a doubt in the beginning
Never a doubt
Trusted you true in the beginning
I loved you right through
Arm in arm we laughed like kids
At all the silly things we did
You made me promises, promises
Knowing I'd believe promises, promises
You knew you'd never keep
Second time around, I'm still believing
The words that you said
You said you'd always be here
And love forever still repeats in my head
You can't finish what you start
If this is love it breaks my heart
You made me promises, promises
You knew you'd never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?
Arm in arm we laughed like kids
At all the silly things we did
But you can't finish what you start
If this is love it breaks my heart
You made me promises, promises
You knew you'd never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?
All of your promises
You knew you'd never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?
Promises
Promises
Promises
Promises
Promises
Promises...



QUEEN
Written by Madonna, Terius Youngdell Nash and Mike Dean
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

It will never rain, never rain
If the great sky falls down, no rain, no more rain
Blood's pouring down
High alert, we watch it burn
It's a world under siege
Sirens, sirens
Everyone's whispering: the CIA, MI-6
Hide the unknown
We're at the end of days
For heaven's sake
CHORUS:
The Queen's been slain
She'll never rule again
The Queen's been slain
She'll never rule again
Your Queen's been slain...
Queen's been slain...
Black parade, motorcade
Destiny sings farewell, church bells
Is anyone listening
Everywhere bowed in prayer
Tears are falling
Cong down, coming down
I hear the heaven's calling
Providence, no evidence
There's no confirmation
And only silence remains
We only know one thing
CHORUS:
The Queen's been slain
She'll never rule again
The Queen's been slain
She'll never rule again
Your Queen's been slain...
Queen's been slain...
Who will take her place?
It's written on everyone's face
The truth is slowly dawning
I hear tomorrow calling
Some things can't be replaced
The realization of a new generation
On the eve of imitation
All gone, overthrown
CHORUS:
The Queen's been slain
She'll never rule again
The Queen's been slain
She'll never rule again
Your Queen's been slain...
Queen's been slain...
(May God bless you all)
(May God bless you all)
(May God bless you all)

REVENGE
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels  
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO (1998)

There is no such thing as revenge
You will not give as good as you got
There is no such thing as an eye for an eye
If you think you're the giver, you're not
There is no such thing as regret
There is no point in placing the blame
Hate destroys the one who hate
And everyone suffers the same
CHORUS:
What you see
Is not necessarily what you get
The eyes are the window to the soul
Take your judgements
And let them go...
There are only love and respect
To the known self be true
When you point the finger
There are three fingers pointed back at you
CHORUS:
What you see
Is not necessarily what you get
The eyes are the window to the soul
Take your judgements
And let them go...
Let them go...
Let them go...
Let them go...
Recognize that love is alive in everyone
Recognize that love is in us all
CHORUS:
What you see
Is not necessarily what you get
The eyes are the window to the soul
Take your judgements
And let them go...
Let them go...
Let them go...
Let them go...
CHORUS:
What you see
Is not necessarily what you get
The eyes are the window to the soul
Take your judgements
And let them go...
Let them go...
Let them go...
Let them go...




REVOLUTION

I'm a poet, you're a thief
Welcome on my side, on the street
Drink my wine, freed the beast
We're all fighters,
CHORUS:
In the revolution
It's calling out our names
It's a constitution
And our struggles are all the same
Who can you blame? Ah!
The revolution...
It's our job, we have no choice
Change the system, use your voice
Don't look back, no regrets
Strap your boots on,
CHORUS:
It's a revolution
And it's calling out your names
In the constitution
Our struggles are all the same
Who can you blame? Ah!
The revolution...
Ain't no stopping us today
Better watch out, you're in the way
We're the children of the future
Haven't you heard,
CHORUS:
About the revolution
And it's calling out your names
In the constitution
And our struggles are all the same
Who can you blame? Ah!
The revolution...
Uhhhh...
Ain't no stopping us today
Better watch out, you're in the way
We're the children of the future
Haven't you heard about the revolution...



SANTA BABY

A VERY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS ALBUM (1987)

Santa baby
Slip a sable under the tree
For me
Been an awful good girl
Santa Baby
And hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby
An out-of-space convertible too, light blue
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa Baby
And hurry down the chimney tonight
Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of the fella's that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo pee doo
Santa honey
I want a yacht and really that's
Not a lot
I been an angel all year
Santa Baby
And hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa cutie
There's one thing I really do need
The deed
To a platinum mine
Santa Cutie
And hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby
And fill my stockin with a duplex
And checks
Sign your X on the line
Santa Baby
And hurry down the chimney tonight
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Boo doo pee doo
Santa baby
Forgot to mention one lil' thing
A ring
I don't mean a phone
Santa baby
And hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney
Tonight...



SCHEHERAZADE (Peter Cetera feat. Madonna)
Written by Peter P. Cetera, Diane Nini and Patrick Leonard
PETER CETERA - ONE MORE STORY  ALBUM (1988)

He was the Sultan of Samarkand
Had a harem of dancing girls at his command
He owned all the eye could see
Something was wrong, he wasn't happy
And then it happened much to his surprise
The loveliest woman he'd ever seen
He asked her name and she replied
"Scheherazade"...
She was the daughter of the Grand Vizier
A real beauty with the heart of gold, she was so sincere
She made a date with destiny
Marry the king, make him happy
He was enchanted on their wedding night
Just a captive under her spell
Spending a thousand and one Arabian nights
"Scheherazade"...
All of his body tingled with delight
Hearing the stories she loved to tell
She was a vision, such a lovely sight
"Scheherazade"...
He made a promise on the morning star
He would change, throw away his scimitar
So she came to stay and that's the way the story goes
Until this very day, Scheherazade
"Scheherazade"
"Scheherazade"...
He was enchanted on their wedding night
Just a captive under her spell
Spending a thousand and one Arabian nights
"Scheherazade"...
All of his bod"y tingled with delight
Hearing the stories she loved to tell
She was a vision, such a lovely sight
"Scheherazade"
"Scheherazade"
"Scheherazade"
"Scheherazade"...

SEND IN THE CLOWNS (PERFORMED BY MADONNA AT 'TEARS OF A CLOWN' SHOW 2016)
Written by Stephen Sondheim

Isn't it rich?
Are we a pair?
Me here, at last, on the ground
You in mid-air
Send in the clowns
Isn't it bliss?
Don't you approve?
One who keeps tearing around
One who can't move
Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns
Just when I'd stopped opening doors
Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours
Making my entrance again with my usual flair
Sure of my lines
No one is there
Don't you love farce?
My fault, I fear
I thought that you'd want what I want
Sorry, my dear
But where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns
Don't bother, they're here
Isn't it rich?
Isn't it queer?
Losing my timing this late in my career
And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
Where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns
But maybe next year...



SET THE RIGHT
Written by Madonna & Mirwais Ahmadzaï
AMERICAN LIFE ALBUM DEMO (2003)
I have read somewhere in a book
That you can change your destiny
If you work enough
You can change your luck
Tell me where I have to be
So I can find this liberty
CHORUS:
Don't push me to the left
Don't push me to the right
I don't wanna have to fight
'Cause I know the justice is coming right...
Gather up your hopes
Gather up your dreams
Just to stay alive
Is harder than it seems
I lay awake at night
Wondering what to do
Then this all did came to me
We're all changed to the red and blue
CHORUS:
Don't push me to the left
Don't push me to the right
I don't wanna have to the fight
'Cause I know the justice is coming right
Don't push me to the left
Don't push me to the right
Just push me straight ahead
And you'll find justice is coming right...
To the left...
To the right...
Have to fight...
Coming right...
To the left...
To the right...
Straight ahead...
Coming right...
I have learned nothing is for free
If my ship goes down
No one's gonna come for me
Soldiers they take arms
And ready for the slaughter
God forgive us all our sins
We were once your sons and daughters
CHORUS:
Don't push me to the left
Don't push me to the right
I don't wanna have to the fight
'Cause I know the justice is coming right
Don't push me to the left
Don't push me to the right
Just push me straight ahead
And you'll find justice is coming right
To the left...
To the right...
Have to fight...
Coming right...
To the left...
To the right...
Straight ahead...
Coming right...

Sex, what you know about sex?
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex?
Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top
Oh my God, soaking wet

Wanna put my hands around your neck
Gonna take you to a place that you will not forget

I like to grind it on you
And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby...
Oh my God, let me clean your wound
I can be your nurse
Got the antidote, please show me where it hurts
Can you be my father?, tell me what to do
You can punish me and maybe I will punish you

As long as it feels right (Oh my God)
Our love this is natural
There's nothing wrong with, nothing wrong with that
CHORUS:

WAS (NOT WAS) - BORN TO LAUGH AT TORNADOES ALBUM (1983)
You can't stare into the sun, you can't pretend to have fun

You can't read a robot's mind, can't expect vultures to be kind
(Shake your head)
Can't tune a radio to heaven, you can't live seven lives

You can't win money at the horses, you can't fight the armed forces

SIDEWALK TALK (Catherine Buchanan feat. Madonna)
Written by Madonna
JELLYBEAN BENITEZ - WOTUPSKI ALBUM (1984)
Catherine Buchanan:
Watch where you walk 'cause the sidewalks talk
And you can't keep a secret from the ground beneath you
Step very lightly on the earth below
Or before you know it everyone will know
Streets were paved with a thousand eyes
And try as you may you can't disguise
There's only two things that you can't hide from
That's you and the ground you're walking on
Watch where you walk 'cause the sidewalks talk
You better watch what you do, what you do
'Cause the sidewalk talk can get carried away
You better watch what you say, what you say
Think when you speak 'cause you gotta 'long the street
They can read what you say so you gotta stay away
From words that sting, words are not true
And the things you say make a fool of you
Little white lies make the sidewalk cry
And you can betray with the things you say
Words won't last when you say 'em too fast
And you've been mislead by the things you've said
Watch where you walk 'cause the sidewalks talk
You better watch what you do, what you do
'Cause the sidewalk talk can get carried away
You better watch what you say, what you say
Madonna:
When you're living on the street
Life can be full of misery
Find a place to call your own
Make your heart into a home
You can do it... oh.. uh huh
You can do it... uh huh
You can do it... uh huh
You can do it... uh huh
You can do it
Catherine Buchanan:
After every word there's a place that heard
Every time your shoe hits the avenue
And when you're gone they'll sing a song
Of the stories you told when you felt so bold
You better think twice when you cross the ice
Everything you do comes back to you
When you're shedding a tear sidewalks will hear
When your laughter's true they'll run with you
Watch where you walk 'cause the sidewalks talk
You better watch what you do what you do
'Cause the sidewalk talk can get carried away
You better watch what you say, what you say
Sidewalk talk, sidewalk talk
Sidewalk talk, sidewalk talk
Madonna:
Let me tell ya 'bout
Sidewalk talk, sidewalk talk
Sidewalk talk, sidewalk talk
Watch out for
Ssidewalk talk, sidewalk talk
Sidewalk talk, sidewalk talk
Let me tell ya 'bout (sidewalk talk)
Let me tell ya 'bout (sidewalk talk)
Let me tell ya 'bout (sidewalk talk)
Let me tell ya 'bout sidewalk talk...

Speak...
Don't say forgive me (forgive me)
Don't say you're sorry

SUPERNATURAL
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
LIKE A PRAYER ALBUM DEMO (1989) & CHERISH SINGLE B-SIDE (1989)
Made your acquaintance late one night
You were floating around
You know you gave me quite a fright
You didn't seem like an ordinary man
More like a ray of light
You transcendentally imposed yourself upon my bed
You know you didn't say very much
I'm out of body and I feel so good in my head
You know I'm really quite touched
I wake up with your fragrance and it's all over me
What cologne do you wear?
I walk around with a smile on my face
'cause you're close to me
Well I know you're somewhere
CHORUS:
Gonna take my chance on a different kind of romance
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna have my fill
It gives me such a big thrill to be with
A su-supernatural thing...
I stay uplifted for quite some time
And I'd say that your skills as a lover are very refined
You know just what I want and I don't have to ask
Are you reading my mind?
You're not demanding for a man
That's really quite rare
You're not the least bit obsessed with your hair
You're not upset when I come home later than ten
For a ghost you're a very good friend
I've got to be a very careful
Never know what the neighbors would say
They already think I'm crazy
I wouldn't like to wake up and find myself in the family way
A ghost baby?
CHORUS:
Gonna take my chance on a different kind of romance
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna have my fill
It gives me such a big thrill to be with
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna take my chance on a different kind of romance
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna have my fill
It gives me such a big thrill to be with
A su-supernatural thing...
I can't see you...
I know you're out there you little rascal..
Stop that!
I've got to be a very careful
Never know what the neighbors would say
They already think I'm crazy
I wouldn't like to wake up and find myself in the family way
A ghost baby?
CHORUS:
Gonna take my chance on a different kind of romance
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna have my fill
It gives me such a big thrill to be with
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna take my chance on a different kind of romance
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna have my fill
It gives me such a big thrill to be with
A su-supernatural thing
Gonna take my pants off for a different kind of romance
That super-duper naturally big thing
It's outrageously large
(Gonna take my chance on a different kind of romance)
(A supernatural thing)
(Gonna have my fill)
(It gives me such a big thrill to be with)
(A supernatural thing)

THE BEAST WITHIN
Remixed by Lenny Kravitz and Madonna
JUSTIFY MY LOVE MAXI-SINGLE (1990) & THE GIRLIE SHOW TOUR (1993) 

From Revelation 1:3:
Blessed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophecy
And blessed are those who hear
And who keep what is written therein
For the time is near
From Revelation 1:7:
He is coming with the clouds
And every eye will see him
Everyone who pierced him
And all the tribes of the earth will wail on account of him
From Revelation 2:1-4:
Those of you who have not learned
What some call the deep things of Satan
I know your works
I know your toil
And your patient endurance
And how you cannot hear evil men
But have tested those who call themselves
Apostles
But are not
And found them to be false
I know you are enduring patiently
And bearing out
For my namesake
And you have not grown weary
But I have this against you
That you have abandoned
The love you had
From Revelation 2:9-10:
I know your tribulation and your poverty
And the slander of those who say
That they are Jews
But they are not
They are a synagogue of Satan
Do not fear what you are about to suffer
Behold the devil is about to throw you into prison
Wanting...
Needing...
Waiting...
For you...
To justify my love...
Hoping...
Praying...
For you...
To justify my love...
From Revelation 13:1-10:
And I saw a beast rising out of the sea
With ten horns and seven heads
And a blasphemous name upon its head
And the beast that I saw was like a leopard
Its feet were like a bear's
And its mouth was like a lion's mouth
And to it the dragon gave his power
And his throne
And great authority
One of his heads had a mortal wound
But it seemed to have a mortal wound
That was healed
And the whole earth followed the beast with wonder
Men worshipped the dragon
For he had given his authority to the beast
And they worshipped the beast saying
"Who is like the beast and who can fight against the beast?"
And the beast was given a mouth
Uttering haughty and blasphemous words
And it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months
It opened its mouth to utter blasphemous
Words
Against
God...
It was allowed to make war on the saints
And to conquer them
And authority was given it over every tribe
And a people and tongue and nation
And all who dwell on earth could worship it
In vain
If anyone has an ear let him hear
If anyone is to be taken captive, into captivity he will go
If anyone who slays with the sword, with the sword
Wanting...
Needing...
Waiting...
For you...
To justify my love...
Hoping...
From Revelation 21:1-8:
Then
I saw a new heaven
And a new earth
And I heard a great voice from the throne saying
"Behold the dwelling of God is with men"
He will dwell with them
And they shall be his people
And God himself will be with them
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes
And death shall be no more
Neither shall there be mourning
Nor crying
Nor pain
Anymore
For these things will have passed away
To the thirsty I will give water without price
From the fountain of the water of life
He who conquers shall have this heritage
And I will be his God and he shall be my son
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted
As for the murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolators
And all liars
Their lot shall be in the lake
That burns with fire 
From Revelation 22:10-13:
And he said to me
He said to me
"Do not seal up the words of the prophecy
For the time is near"
Let the evildoers still do evil
And the filthy still be filthy
And the righteous still do right
And the holy still be holy
Behold
I am coming soon
I am the alpha
And the omega
The first
And the last
The beginning
And the end"...
Amen
What are you gonna do?...

THE FUNNY SONG (OH DEAR FATHER)
Written by Madonna
DROWNED WORLD TOUR (2001)
I went down to the local bar
To buy my daddy a big cigar
When I got home he was dead
Somebody shot him in the head
Oh, dear, daddy, you're not gonna see me grieve
'Cause you brought out the worst in me
Yep, it's all true
It's true, it makes me cry
When the funeral was through
I had myself a barbecue
Daddy's bones, they sure taste good
I couldn't have stopped if only I could




THE GAME 
Written by Madonna & Mirwais Ahmadzaï
AMERICAN LIFE ALBUM DEMO (2003)

You want, I've got
You take, have not
Your loss, my gain
We're all the same
CHORUS:
You're in the game but you don't know it
Get in control or you're gonna blow it
Ask him his name, find out where did he come from
I wanna know if he's really God's son...
Is he really God's son?...
You have, I lack
We fade to black
Your move, I take
You win, checkmate
CHORUS:
We're all sick, but we just can't see it
Call it a trick, but we don't wanna be it
Try to break through all of your defenses
How would it feel to let go of your senses?...
Don't forget to ask him his name
If you knew what I knew you'd be doing the same
Ambiguity does us no good
I want everything to be understood...
You want, I've got, you take, have not
Your loss, my gain, we're all the same
You have, I lack, we fade to black
Your move, I take, you win, checkmate
CHORUS:
We're in a game but we don't know it
Get in control or we're all gonna blow it
Ask him his name, find out where did he come from
I wanna know if he's really God's son
Don't forget to ask him his name
If you knew what I knew you'd be doing the same
Ambiguity does us no good
I want everything to be understood...



TIME STOOD STILL
Written by Madonna and William Orbit
THE NEXT BEAST THING FILM SOUNDTRACK (2000)

Despair, regret and tenderness
Is what I feel for you
I loved you from the very start
What else could I do?
You read my mind, you made me cry
Time stood still
And now I know the reasons why
Time stood still
CHORUS:
Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been...
A flame becomes a fading light
That burns inside my heart
And like a castle in the sand
It had to fall apart
You made me laugh, you gave me hope
It's over now
Our happiness went up in smoke
It's over now
CHORUS:
Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been
Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been
Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been
Maybe you're my next best thing to happen
All the things we might have been...




TRAGIC GIRL
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

I tried to change but I couldn't help myself
I am to blame, I used to be someone else
No one got through, nothing came inside the gate
You made me feel when my heart was set on hate
I convinced myself that I was invincible
But I didn't know that feelings can lie too
You exposed my deepest wound, but I felt so safe
Didn't know that you had never loved me
CHORUS:
Every time you say good-bye
It feels like the end of the world
Every time I start to cry
I feel like the most tragic girl...
You were so good at pretending that you care
I was alone, even with you standing there
You made me doubt everyone that cared for me
I shut them out so that you'd be all I see
I convinced myself that I was invincible
But I didn't know that feelings can lie too
You exposed my deepest wound, but I felt so safe
Didn't know that you had never loved me
CHORUS:
Every time you say good-bye
It feels like the end of the world
Every time I start to cry
I feel like the most tragic girl
Every time you say good-bye
It feels like the end of the world
Every time I start to cry
I feel like the most tragic girl

You're only triggering your senses

I like it...
A hip, a hip, a hippety hop and you don't stop, you get on your feet
You do the hip hop to a different beat
I know you don't stop when you're on the street
You're not feeling down and there's no one else around
You get on your feet until you hear the funky beat, beat, beat, beat,...
When you're on the street
To a different beat
When you're feeling down
When there's no one else around
When there's no one else around
CHORUS:

TRUST NO BITCH (Madonna feat. Natalia Kills)
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO (2014)

It's a special time...
CHORUS:
I put in the hours
You can count on it
Knowledge is power
You can trust no bitch
You can trust no bitch
They can flip the switch
Knowledge is power
You can trust no bitch
Know me
Wipe your tears and console me
That he ain't good enough for me
Shake those insecurities
Listen
I got more intuition
I see right through your "stick-together, girls-forever, man-snatching" tricks
Monday you call me up about Friday
And then disappear until Sunday
Back here tryin' to talk your shit, auh!
CHORUS:
I put in the hours
You can count on it
Knowledge is power
You can trust no bitch
You can trust no bitch
They can flip the switch
Knowledge is power
You can trust no bitch
Drama
Ever heard about karma
Just a word about trauma
That's what you have coming to you
Besties
Had your hands on his testies
Hope you loved every second of your violated STD's
Girlfriend
You just did me a favour
I know human behaviour
Time to elevate my shit, auh!
CHORUS:
I put in the hours
You can count on it
Knowledge is power
You can trust no bitch
You can trust no bitch
They can flip the switch
I put in the hours
You can trust no bitch
And by the way, you're as cheap as your weave
(And as fake as your tits)

You're a copycat, get back

Just a wannabe-me
Never gonna be me, just a wannabe-me...



UNAPOLOGETIC BITCH
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Garcia, Orellana, Maureen McDonald and Toby Gad
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

Woke up this morning feeling good that you were gone
Hurt for a while, but I'm finally moving on
Said it, did it, hit it, quit it
Then you let it go
Still you tryin' to call me but I blocked you on my phone
It took a minute but now I'm feeling strong
It almost killed me but I'm better off alone
Now you're saying that you're sorry, I don't wanna know
Better face the fact you had to go
CHORUS:
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
You know you never really knew how much you loved me
Til you lost me
Did you?
You know you never really knew
How much your selfish bullshit cost me
Well fuck you
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
I know you'd like it if I sat at home and cried
But that ain't gonna happen, here's the reason why
When we did it?, I'll admit it, wasn't satisfied
When the gun was loaded you were never on my side
I'm popping bottles that you can't even afford
I'm throwing parties and you won't get in the door
Said it, get it, love it, hate it
I don't care no more
Tell me how it feels to be ignored
CHORUS:
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
You know you never really knew how much you loved me
Til you lost me
Did you?
You know you never really knew
How much your selfish bullshit cost me
Well fuck you
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
Yeah yeah iouoo
Yeah yeah iouoo
Yeah yeah iouoo
Yeah yeah iouoo
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an...
CHORUS:
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
You know you never really knew
How much you loved me 'til you lost me
Did you?
You know you never really knew
How much your selfish bullshit cost me
Well fuck you
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an unapologetic bitch
But sometimes you know I gotta call it like it is
It might sound like I'm an...
It might sound like I'm an... 



UP DOWN SUITE
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone
RAIN MAXI-SINGLE B-SIDE (1992)

I don't wanna say goodbye
There are some who believe that I owe them something
But they're wrong, I owe nothing to no one but myself
And there are some who say they created me
But only my parents will have that acclaim
I took it from there, I am to blame
Up
Down, up, up, up
Down, up, up, up
Down, up, up, up
(repeat)

Seem like yesterday, I was a baby on the street
I took a Holiday, I was stepping to the beat
I had to pay my rent, on the Lower East Side
I threw my tag around, let B-Boys take me for a ride
I started writing songs, I kinda got Into the Groove
They tried to criticize my every single move
But then I realized I had nothing left to lose
It took me by surprise when I became the news
CHORUS:
I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said
I came, I saw, I conquered
I was constant as a northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered 
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered...
I Expressed myself, came Like A Virgin down the aisle
Exposed my naked ass, and I did it with a smile
And when it came to S.E.X., I know I walked the Borderline
And when I struck a pose, all the gay boys lost their mind
I Justified My Love, I made you say a little prayer
They had me crucified, you know I had to take it there
I Opened up my Heart, I learned The Power of Good-bye

I saw a Ray of Light, Music saved my life
CHORUS:


I was fearless like a renegade

I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said
I came, I saw, I conquered
I was constant as a northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
I conquered...conquered...
Conquered...
CHORUS:
I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said
I came, I saw, I conquered
I was constant as a northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered
Uhh I came, I saw, I conquered...



VERÁS (Spanish Version of You'll See)
Written by Madonna and David Foster
YOU'LL SEE MAXI-SINGLE (1995)

Tu piensas que yo no podré vivir sin ti
Tu piensas no podrá sobrevivir
Que nada me queda, si no estás junto a mi
Verás que no es asi...
Tu piensas que jamás seré feliz, sin ti
Que destruiste al fin mi corazón
Que no voy a descubrir la forma de volver atrás
Sin ti, yo sé que si...
CHORUS:
Ya lo verás
No necesito a nadie más
Podré resistir
Voy a poder seguir,
Lo haré por mi
Será mi gloria personal
Nadie, ni tu, me la podrá quitar...
Verás...
Acepta la verdad, no lloraré por ti
Yo sé que así será, podré salir
Voy a saltar sin red, y no voy a caer
Será mejor sin ti...
CHORUS:
Ya lo verás
No necesito a nadie más
Podré resistir
Voy a poder seguir...
Lo haré por mi
Será mi gloria personal
Nadie, ni tu, me la podrá quitar...
Verás...ahhh
Verás...mmm
Mmmm...



WASH ALL OVER ME
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Salem Al Fakir, Magnus Lidehäll, Vincent Pontare, Mike Dean, Kanye West and Brown
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO VERSION (2014)

In a world that's changing
I'm a stranger
In a strange land
There's a contradiction
And I'm stuck here in between
Life is like a desert
An oasis
To confuse me
So I walk this razor's edge
Will I stand or will I fall?
Turn a blind eye
Try to pretend that nothing is what it seems
Torn between the impulse to stay or
Running away from all this madness
CHORUS:
Who am I to decide what should be done?
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me, over me
Let it wash all over me...
All of my illusions
Could be shattered in a second
You can thread a needle
With a teardrop from my eye
It's a cruel injustice
To be witness
To the things I see
Looking for the answer
When it's right in front of me
From the tower of Babylon
Where nothing is what it seems
Gonna watch the sun going down
I'm not gonna run from all this sadness
CHORUS:
Who am I to decide what should be done?
If this is the end then let it come
Let it come, let it rain
Rain all over me
Like the tide, let it flow
Let it wash all over me
Over me, let it wash all over me
Over me, let it wash all over me...
