MADONNA - LYRICS 2010's & DEMOS

MADONNA - MDNA ALBUM 2012




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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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:
To 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

L-U-V Madonna
Y-O-U You wanna
I see you coming
And I don't wanna know your name
(L-U-V Madonna)
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

Every record sounds the same
You've gotta step into my world

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
We can drink some wine, Burgundy is fine
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 today
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
M.I.A.:
Licks on some swag shit
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
Yeah, I don't give a shit
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
(Y-O-U You wanna)
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


SOME GIRLS
Written by Madonna, William Orbit and Klas Ahlund

Some girls can do anything

Some girls got an attitude
Fake tits and a nasty mood
Hot chick when she's in the 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

(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'

Some girls have a filthy mouth
All talk and they never stop
Just take and it's not 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'

(Got their 'fuck me' porn star heels on)
Some girls are not for free
I never wanna be like some girls
(Gettin' freaky, gettin' freaky)

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
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
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
CHORUS:
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)
CHORUS:
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
W.E. FILM SOUNDTRACK 2011, MDNA ALBUM 2012

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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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

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
CHORUS:
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
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

LOVE SPENT (Acoustic Version)
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 need
Was right here with me
All until the end
All this pretend wasn’t for free
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
Oo nah
Oo nah

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
Til death do we part
That’s what you said
Now you have your fast cars
Women and bars
It’s gone to your head
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
Oo nah

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 it
Till there’s nothing left
CHORUS:
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)
CHORUS:

Feeling love spent
Yeah, I’m love spent
Wondering where the love went
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...


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 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...
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...


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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
CHORUS:
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, ...)
CHORUS:
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 be alright
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
CHORUS:
Hold tight
As long as you're by my side
Hold tight

Air that you're not breathing

If your heart's not beating
If you hurt then I
Wanna be the one that's bleeding
Wanna be the one that's bleeding
Hold tight
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna
Everything's gonna
Only love, only love tonight
Lights off, we're burning so bright
Everything's gonna

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

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

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
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

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
CHORUS:

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

Kiss it better, kiss it better
Don't it taste like holy water
Make it wetter, make it wetter

I promise you it's not a sin
Find salvation deep within
We can do it here on the floor

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

Don't it taste like holy water

Don't it taste like holy water

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

Ladies with an attitude

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
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
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

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

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

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)
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh 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)
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh 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
CHORUS:
Madonna:
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)
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered

Sex, tell me...
...Hot, Sex
Sex, tell me...
CHORUS:
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

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

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

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

Back and forth 'til we break the bed
You got a bad attitude

And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby

A lesson in sexology...

Blindfold, string of pearls
Necktie, silk scarf
Silver chains, pretty girls
Thigh highs, feather mask
High heels, gold damask
Perfume, switchblade

Chopsticks, underwear
Bar of soap, dental chair
Fishnets, satin sheets
Garter belt, raw meat

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

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 Tucke

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
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
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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
We can break down and take down
But they can't destroy our history
This wall, it must fall
To make room for our masterpiece
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...

ACROSS THE SKY (feat. Justin Timberlake and Timbaland)
Written by Madonna, T. Mosley, J. Timberlake and N. Hills
HARD CANDY ALBUM DEMO 2008

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
And I don't know if it's you or me
But it's time to speak your mind
CHORUS:
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
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
And I don't know if it's you or me
But it's time to speak your mind
CHORUS:
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


ANIMAL
Written by Timbaland and Madonna
HARD CANDY ALBUM DEMO 2008

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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
CHORUS:
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?
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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...
Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmm
If they could just walk along in my shoes for a while

BAD GIRL (Guitar demo)
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone
EROTICA ALBUM DEMO 1992

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 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
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...


BANG BANG (Early demo of Gang Bang)
Written by Madonna, William Orbit, Priscilla Hamilton, Keith Harris, Jean-Baptiste and Mika
MDNA ALBUM DEMO 2012

I should've known
When we met at the late show
You and me, dangerous
Sittin' way too close
2am, at my door
Where you dropped me off
Tell me how in the hell
Did I end up with my hand on the barrell
It's time that you paid
I want you to clean up the mess that you made
Like a bitch out of water
Like a bat out of hell
Like a fish out of water
I'm scared, can't you tell
CHORUS:
Bang Bang
Put my gun down on the table
Before you try to blow my mind
I used to think it was you
Who was so unstable?
But now I'm sure I'm close behind
B-B-Bang
B-B-Bang Bang Boom
I thought you were good
You painted me bad
Compared to the others
The best thing I had
But then I discovered
It couldn't get worse
You're buildin' my coffin
You're drivin' the hearse
I thought it was you
I loved you the most
But I was just keepin'
My enemies close
I made a decision to never look back
So how did you end up with all of my jack
Woh-oh-oh
Bang Bang
I should've known
You were too good to be true
You were hidin' both your horns
And I was such a fool
It's not a race
Wasn't trying to beat you
Trip me up, shut me down
When I was with you
Like a bitch out of water
Like a bat out of hell
Like a fish out of water
I'm scared, can't you tell
CHORUS:
Bang Bang
Put my gun down on the table
Before you try to blow my mind
I used to think it was you
Who was so unstable?
But now I'm sure I'm close behind
B-B-Bang
B-B-Bang Bang Boom
I thought you were good
You painted me bad
Compared to the others
The best thing I had
But then I discovered
It couldn't get worse
You're buildin' my coffin
You're drivin' the hearse
I thought it was you
I loved you the most
But I was just keepin'
My enemies close
I made a decision I had to employ
So how did you end up with all of my toys
I'm not your brother, not your lover
And I'm not your friend
Now that it's over you're another
Kind of different
A new person
Your time is up
And that's my blood in your dixie cup

BEAUTIFUL STRANGER
Written by Madonna and William Orbit
AUSTIN POWER: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME SOUNDTRACK 1999, GHV2 COMPILATION ALBUM 2001, CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM 2009

Haven't we met?
You're some kind of beautiful stranger
You could be good for me
I've had the taste for danger
If I'm smart then I'll run away
But I'm not so I guess I'll stay
Heaven forbid
I'll take my chance on a beautiful stranger
I looked into your eyes
And my world came tumbling down
You're the devil in disguise
That's why I'm singing this song
To know you is to love you
You're everywhere I go
And everybody knows
To love you is to be part of you
I've paid for you with tears
And swallowed all my pride
CHORUS:
Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum
Beautiful stranger
Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum
Beautiful stranger
If I'm smart then I'll run away
But I'm not so I guess I'll stay
Haven't you heard
I fell in love with a beautiful stranger
I looked into your face
My heart was dancing all over the place
I'd like to change my point of view
If I could just forget about you
To know you is to love you
You're everywhere I go
And everybody knows
I looked into your eyes
And my world came tumbling down
You're the devil in disguise
That's why I'm singing this song to you
To know you is to love you
You're everywhere I go
And everybody knows
I've paid for you with tears
And swallowed all my pride
CHORUS:
Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum
Beautiful stranger
Da-da-da-dum da-dum da-dum da da da-da dum
Beautiful stranger


BETWEEN THE BARS (Cover by Madonna performed at Secret Project Revolution premiere 2013 and Tears of a Clown special show 2016)
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

REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 2014

Ooohh you're gonna love this
Ooohh you can't touch this
Ooohh cuz I'm a bad bitch
We hit the elevator right up to the rooftop
The bass is pumping, make me wanna screw the top off
Yeah we'll be drinking and nobody's gonna stop us
And we'll be kissing anybody that's around us
I just wanna have fun tonight
Pull me under the flashing light
Ooohh lemme blow up this house tonight

We go hard or we go home, we gon' do this all night long
We get freaky if you want, na nana na na
We go hard or we go home, we gon' do this all night long
We get freaky if you want
Bitch I'm Madonna, bitch, bitch I'm Madonna, bitch, bitch I'm Madonna
We're jumpin' in the pool and swimmin' with our clothes on
I poured a beer into my shoe and got my freak on
The neighbor's pissed and says he's gonna call the 5-0
If they show up then we are gonna give a good show
I just wanna go up tonight
Pull me under the flashing light
Ooohh lemme blow up this house tonight
CHORUS:
We go hard or we go home, we gon' do this all night long
We get freaky if you want, na nana na na
We go hard or we go home, we gon' do this all night long

Bitch I'm Madonna, bitch I'm Madonna, bitch, bitch I'm Madonna
Bitch I'm Madonna, bitch I'm Madonna, bitch I'm Madonna, bitch I'm Madonna
Who do you think you are?
You can't mess with this lucky star
Ooohh who do you think you are?
CHORUS:
We go hard or we go home, we gon' do this all night long
We get freaky if you want, na nana na na
We go hard or we go home, we gon' do this all night long
We get freaky if you want
Bitch I'm Madonna
Ooohh we do it like this
Ooohh you're gonna love this
Ooohh you can't touch this

Who do you think you are? (Cuz I'm a bad bitch)
Who do you think you are? (Cuz I'm a bad bitch)
Who do you think you are? (Cuz I'm a bad bitch)
Who do you think you are!


BITTERSWEET (Poem read by Madonna)
Written by Rumi
A GIFT OF LOVE: MUSIC INSPIRED BY THE LOVE POEMS OF RUMI ALBUM 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 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
You can smooth out the fender
You can start the ignition
We can go on a bender
I hear you work at a body shop


BORN TO BE ALIVE (Backup vocals by Madonna 1979)
Written by Patrick Hernandez
BEST OF PATRICK HERNANDEZ COMPILATION ALBUM 1995

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 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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
Cause we're only here to love
Like there's no tomorrow
So let's live each moment like
Our time is only borrowed


BOUM
Written by Charles Trenet
HELLO SUCKERS! MUSICAL 2003

Je t'aime!
La pendule fait tic-tac-tic-tic
Les oiseaux du lac pic-pac-pic-pic
Glou-glou-glou font tous les dindons
Et la jolie cloche ding-dang-dong
Mais... boum!
Quand notre coeur fait boum
Tout avec lui dit boum
Et c'est l'amour qui s'éveille
Boum!
Thunder and lightning, boum
Can't you see love's in bloom
All of my heart goes boum, boum
Tout a changé depuis hier et la rue
A des yeux qui regardent aux fenêtres
Y'a du lilas et y'a des mains tendues
Sur la mer le soleil va paraître
Boum!
L'astre du jour fait boum
Tout avec lui dit boum
Quand notre coeur fait boum-boum
Le vent dans les bois fait hou-hou
La biche aux abois fait mêh-mêh
La vaisselle cassée fait fric-fric-frac
Et les pieds mouillés font flic-flic-flac
Mais... boum!
Now if you think that sounds silly in French
I'll be happy to sing it for you in my native tongue
The wind in the woods goes hou-hou
The silly little goat goes mêh-mêh
The broken dishes sound like fric-fric-frac
And my little feet go flic-flic-flac
Brrr!
Mais boum!
Quand notre coeur fait boum
Tout avec lui dit boum
L'oiseau dit boum, c'est l'orage
Boum!
Thunder and lightning, boum
Don't you know love's in bloom
All of my heart goes boum, boum
Car mon amour est plus vif que l'éclair
Plus léger qu'un oiseau, qu'une abeille
Et s'il fait boum, s'il se met en colère
Il entraîne avec lui des merveilles
Boum!
Le monde entier fait boum
Tout avec lui dit boum
Quand notre coeur fait boum-boum
I said, boum
Thunder and lightning, boum
Don't you know love's in bloom
All of my heart goes boum, boum
I said, boum
It goes boum, boum


BROKEN (I'M SORRY)
Written by Madonna and Paul Oakenfold
CELEBRATION COMPILATION 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
CHORUS:
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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
(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


DEAR FATHER
Written by Madonna and Andre Betts
EROTICA ALBUM DEMO 1992

Blessed I am, bless I will
I'm the one, I can still
Overcome, and embrace
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
CHORUS:
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
You're the one, with me still
Give me strength, to undo
All the, hurting people do
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
CHORUS:
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
Without your help, dear father
Without your help, dear father
Without your help, dear father
Without your help, dear father
Without your help, dear father
Without your help, dear father
Without your help, dear father
I would be all alone
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
CHORUS:
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, 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
Without your help, dear father...


DEEPER AND DEEPER (Demo version)
Written by Madonna, Shep Pettibone and Tony Shimkin
EROTICA ALBUM DEMO 1992

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
(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
And my mama made me learn this song
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
I can't keep from falling in love
And you know it
I can't keep from falling in love
So I'll show it
You got to just let your body move to the music
Uh, 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...
 
 
DEVIL PRAY
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Dacoury Natche and Michael Tucker
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 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 BREAK MY HEART
Written by Madonna and Steve Bray
NICK KAMEN ALBUM 1986, 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)

Written by J. Davenport and E. Cooley
EROTICA ALBUM DEMO 1992

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
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
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
He gives me fever
CHORUS:
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
 

FREEDOM

That people say when they're afraid
And if you say "no" to me
Then I will fight you till I'm free
CHORUS:
Say freedom, brotherhood
Justice, just say "yes"
Say freedom, brotherhood
Justice, just say "yes"

And if you say "no" to me
Then I will fight you till I'm free
CHORUS:
Freedom, brotherhood
Justice, just say "yes"

Say freedom, brotherhood
Justice, just say "yes"
Freedom, brotherhood
Justice, just say "yes"
Say freedom, brotherhood

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


FROZEN (Demo version)
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO 1998

If I could melt your heart
We'd never be apart
Give yourself to me
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
You're so consumed with how much you get (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
Give yourself to me
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 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 to me...
Mmmmm...

THE IMMACULATE COLLECTION ALBUM DEMO 1990

Yeah
CHORUS:
You get under my skin
When I'm next to you
You get over
Every little thing you do, I
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
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
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
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
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

I see you coming and I don't wanna know your name
L-U-V Madonna
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

And pretend to be what you're not
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 love today
Give me all your love and give me your love

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
We can drink some wine
Burgundy is fine
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 got to step into my world
CHORUS:
Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love

Every record sounds the same
You've gotta step into my world

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 (Demo version)
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
CHORUS:
Say goodbye to anonymity
I have to, have to, have to say goodbye
To privacy, but most of all
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
CHORUS:
Say goodbye to anonymity
I have to, have to, have to say goodbye
To privacy, but most of all
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
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 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
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
CHORUS:
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Ohhh, ohhh,
Ohhh, ohhh, yeah
Ohhh, ohhh,
Ohhh, ohhh, yeah
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
Ohh don't ever try to take our 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
CHORUS:
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Love is pain and pain is art
Show me your graffiti heart
Ohhh, ohhh,
Ohhh, ohhh, yeah
Ohhh, ohhh,
Ohhh, ohhh, yeah
If graffiti on the wall changed anything at all
Then it would be illegal...

HEARTBREAKCITY
Written by Madonna, Tim Bergling, Arash Pournouri, Tobias Jimson, Flygare, Paloma Stoecker, Salem Al Fakir, Magnus Lidehall and Vincent Pontare
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 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 ofa 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)

HISTORY
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price
JUMP SINGLE B-SIDE 2006

(Repeat history, just repeat history,...)
I looked all around the world
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...)


HISTORY (Land Of The Free)
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price

I looked all around the world
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
CHORUS:
Why are we separated?
I thought that we were related
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
CHORUS:
Why are we separated?
I thought that we were related
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
I have a dream
But dreams are not for free
We all need to change
Or just repeat history
If we were one
Well it's easier said than done
We can play our part make a brand new start
Come together live forever
Uh...(repeat 12 times)
CHORUS:
Why are we separated?
I thought that we were related,
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
Americans don't understand,
Etas-Unis Land of the Free,
Americans don't understand,
Etas-Unis Land of the Free...


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


HOW HIGH (Bloodshy & Avant Demo)
Written by Madonna, Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg and Henrik Jonback
CONFESSIONS ON A DANCE FLOOR ALBUM DEMO 2005

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?
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?
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 are the stakes?
(How high are the stakes?)
How much fortune can you make?
(How much fortune can you make?)
Should I carry on?
(Should I carry on?)
Will it matter when I'm gone?
(Will it matter when I'm gone?)
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 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?
(How high are the stakes?)

CONFESSIONS ON A DANCE FLOOR ALBUM DEMO 2005

Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
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
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
Time goes by so slowly
So slowly (repeat 14 times)
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

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

Madonna:
Pride's that splendid liar
Sworn enemy of love
Jennifer Grey:
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 Grey:
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...

I'M IN LOVE WITH LOVE (Unreleased Re-Invention Tour Era Demo)
Written by Madonna, Mirwais and Monte Pittman

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 changes 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


ICONIC

REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 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
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
CHORUS:
I will rise above 'cause it's my fate
"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

Baby don't you know you were meant to be
Born to be, meant to be

Born to be a superstar
That's exactly what you are
Born to be a superstar
That's exactly what you are

IF I HAD A HAMMER (Cover by Madonna performed at Washington Square Park to support Hillary Clinton on November 7 2016)
Written by Lee Hays and Peter Seeger

If I had a hammer,
I'd hammer in the morning,
I'd hammer in the evening,
All over this land,
I'd hammer out danger,
I'd hammer out a warning,
I'd hammer out love between,
My brothers and my sisters,
All over this land
If I had a bell,
I'd ring it in the morning,
I'd ring it in the evening,
All over this land,
I'd ring out danger,
I'd ring out a warning,
I'd ring out love between,
My brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.
If I had a song
I'd sing it in the morning
I'd sing it in the evening
all over this land
I'd sing out danger
I'd sing out a warning
I'd sing out love between
my brothers and my sisters
all over this land
Well, I've got a hammer
and I've got a bell
and I've got a song to sing
all over this land
It's the hammer of justice
It's the bell of freedom
It's a song about love between my
brothers and my sisters
all over this land


IF YOU FORGET ME (Poem read by Madonna)
Written by Pablo Neruda
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 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 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
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
CHORUS:
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
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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us

Living for today
Imagine there's no countries

Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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

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

Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity

IS THIS LOVE (BON D'ACCORD)
Written by Madonna
AMERICAN LIDE ALBUM DEMO 2003

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


IT'S SO COOL (Acoustic Demo with Lola)
Written by Madonna, Mirwais Ahmadzaï and Monte Pittman
CELEBRATION COMPILATION ALBUM DEMO

CHORUS:
Lola:
It's so cool to be uncool
It's so right to be unright
It's so good to look so bad
Isn't this the best thing you ever had?
Madonna:
It's so hard to be someone
It's so hard to be unkwown
In your heart you are to blame
In your heart you play the game
Do you realize you pay the price
Do you know the cost of all your vice?
Save your soul, it's all a test
Save your soul, it's for the best
CHORUS:
Madonna:
It's so cool to be uncool
It's so right to be unright
It's so good to look so bad
Isn't this the best thing you ever had
Save your soul, little sister
Save your soul, dear little brother
You need hope, says the preacher
Learn to cope, says all my teachers
Do you really know God's intentions?
Do you ever ask what it's all for?
We need love, love and love
We need more, more and more
Prophets are telling us
We're near the end
But I am telling you
That it's all pretend
CHORUS:
Madonna & Lola:
It's so cool to be uncool
It's so right to be unright
It's so good to look so bad
Isn't this the best thing you ever had
It's so cool to be uncool
It's so right to be unright
It's so good to look so bad
Isn't this the best thing you ever had...

JOAN OF ARC
Written by Madonna, Toby Gad, Maureen McDonald and Larry Griffin Jr.
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 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
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, 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 (Madonna backup vocals)
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
DONNA DE LORY ALBUM 1992

CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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)


JUSTIFY MY LOVE (THE BEAST WITHIN MIX)
Remixed by Lenny Kravitz and Madonna

(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 that 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
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 and brimstone."
(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?...

LA VIE EN ROSE (Cover by Madonna performed at Rebel Heart 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

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

Won't you let it be
Won't you let it be
Just let it be
Just let it be
Won't you let it be

Just let it be
Oh let it be

Just let it be
Oh let it be
Just let it be

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 (Cover by Madonna)
Written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus
MUSIC 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
Pouring down like rain
Liquid love
Let it wash all over me...
Your love is like liquid

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
CHORUS:
Never forget who you are
Little star
Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream

Flying higher than all the birds in the sky...
May the angels protect you
And sadness forget you

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
CHORUS:
Never forget who you are
Little star
Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream

Flying higher than all the birds in the sky
Never forget who you are

Shining brighter than all the stars in the sky
Never forget how to dream

Never forget where you come from
From love

Little star
Little star...

 
LIVING FOR LOVE
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad and Ariel Rechtshaid
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 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
CHORUS:
Living for love, living for love
Not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, living for love
Not gonna stop
Love's gonna lift me up
Love's gonna 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
CHORUS:
Living for love, living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, 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
Cause love's gonna lift me up
Cause love's gonna lift me up
CHORUS:
Living for love, living for love
I'm not giving up
I'm gonna carry on
Living for love, living for love
Not gonna stop
Cause love's gonna lift me up


LOVE HURTS
Written by Madonna and Junior Vasquez
EROTICA ALBUM DEMO 1992

Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah...
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah...
My name is Dita
I'll be your mistress tonight
I'll be your loved one darling
Turn off the light
I'll be your sorceress, your heart's magician
I'm not a witch, I'm a love technician
I'll be a guiding light in your darkest hour
I'm gonna change your life, I'm like a poison flower
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... ooh
CHORUS:
Love hurts, love hurts
Do you remember the time?
Love hurts, love hurts
When we fell in love...
Close your eyes, don't be scared
Let's put the blindfolds on, let's see what's under there
I have a special chair, it has a special strap
And there's a special hook, it's called my special trap
Because you're bad, you're gonna get it good
Bow down to lick my boots
Because you know you should
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... ooh
CHORUS:
Love hurts, love hurts
Do you remember the time?
Love hurts, love hurts
When we fell in love...
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah...
Ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh,
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah...
We could use the cage
I've got a lot of rope
I'm not full of rage
I'm full of hope
This is not a crime and you're not on trial
Bend over baby, I'm gonna make you smile
I'll light the candles, 'til they're nice and soft
And when they start to drip, I'm gonna get you off
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... ooh
CHORUS:
Love hurts, love hurts
Do you remember the time?
Love hurts, love hurts
When we fell in love
Love hurts, love hurts
Do you remember the time?
Love hurts, love hurts
When we fell in love...
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah...
Dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah, dah...
Dah, dah, dah, dah,

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)
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?...

Touches everything I'm in
Got to have it everyday

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
CHORUS:
I'm not ashamed to say I'll never let you go
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
CHORUS:
I'm not ashamed to say
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never let you go
Let you go
I'll never 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


NOT PERFECT (Demo version)
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï
MUSIC ALBUM DEMO 2000

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
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
CHORUS:
No..no, no, no...nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
What did you expect?
I’m doing my best...
Cool I am
When I am with you
Cool I'm not
When I am lonely
I feel so sad
(I feel so bad)
I feel so sad
(I feel so bad)
I feel so sad
(I feel so bad)
I feel so sad
CHORUS:
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
Nobody's perfect
I feel so sad
Nobody's perfect
I feel so sad...
I feel so sad...


NOTHING COMPARES 2 YOU/PURPLE RAIN (Cover by Madonna with Stevie Wonder performed at Prince Tribute at Billboard Music Awards 2016)
Written by Prince Rogers Nelson

Madonna:
It's been seven hours and thirteen days
Since you took your love away
I go out every night and sleep all day
Since you took your love away
Since you been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues
'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
It's been so lonely without you here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong
I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they'd only remind me of you
I went to the doctor guess what he told me
(Guess what he told me)
He said girl you better try to have fun no matter what you do
But he's a fool
'Cause nothing compares, nothing compares to you...
All the flowers that you planted baby
In the back yard
All died when you went away
I know that living with you baby was sometimes hard
But I'm willing to give it another try
'Cause nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you
Nothing compares
Nothing compares to you...
Stevie Wonder:
I never meant to cause you any sorrow
Madonna:
I never meant to cause you any pain
Stevie Wonder:
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
Madonna:
I only wanted to see you laughing
Madonna & Stevie Wonder:
In the purple rain
CHORUS:
Madonna & Stevie Wonder:
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Bathing in the purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Sailing in the purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you
Dancing in the purple rain...



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
CHORUS:
Don't wanna live for tomorrow
Let's live tonight like it is the last
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
CHORUS:
Don't wanna live for tomorrow
Let's live tonight like it is the last
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


OH DEAR DADDY (Cover by Madonna performed at Drowned World Tour 2001)
Written by Madonna

I went up to the local bar
To buy my daddy a big cigar
When I got home he was dead
Somebody shot him in the head
CHORUS:
Oh Dear Daddy
You're not gonna see me grieve
'Cause you brought out the worst in me
When the funeral was through
I had myself a barbecue
Daddy's bones they sure taste good
I'd 've kill 'em myself; if only I could
CHORUS:
Oh Dear Daddy
You're not gonna see me sad
'Cause everything you did was bad


PALA TUTE
Written by Madonna, Gogol Bordello and Timbaland
HARD CANDY ALBUM DEMO 2008

The madness of love
And what we'll do for it
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:

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

It's a mad mad world
All the noise inside of my head
It's a mad mad world

PROMISES, PROMISES (Backing vocals by Madonna)
Written by Peter James Byrne and Rob Fisher
NAKED 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
On and on we laughed like kids
At all the silly things we did
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
You made me promises, promises
You knew you'd never keep
Promises, promises
Why do I believe?...
Madonna:
I'll always love you
Now and forever
Don't be afraid
It's gonna be alright...
Naked Eyes:
On and on 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
CHORUS:
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

PUSH (Demo version)
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price
CONFESSIONS ON A DANCE FLOOR ALBUM DEMO 2005

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
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...
CHORUS:
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)
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...

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
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

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 (Backing vocals by Madonna)
Written by Peter Cetera, Diane Nini and Patrick Leonard
PETER CETERA - ONE MORE STORY ALBUM 1988

Peter Cetera:
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
Madonna:
Scheherazade...
Peter Cetera:
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
Madonna:
Scheherazade...
Peter Cetera:
All of his body tingled with delight
Hearing the stories she loved to tell
She was a vision, such a lovely sight
Madonna:
Scheherazade...
Peter Cetera:
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
Madonna:
Scheherazade...
Scheherazade...
Peter Cetera:
He was enchanted on their wedding night
Just a captive under her spell
Spending a thousand and one Arabian nights
Madonna:
Scheherazade...
Peter Cetera:
All of his body tingled with delight
Hearing the stories she loved to tell
She was a vision, such a lovely sight
Madonna:
Scheherazade...
Scheherazade...
Scheherazade...

SECRET (Alternate demo)
Written by Madonna and Dallas Austin
BEDTIME STORIES ALBUM DEMO 1994

Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life
You found a way to touch my soul
And never ever ever gonna let it go
And 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
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
This 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

SEND IN THE CLOWNS (Cover by Madonna performed at Tears of a Clown special 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...

Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex?
CHORUS:
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

Wanna put my hands around your neck
Gonna take you to a place that you will not forget
Sex, what you know about sex?
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex?

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

And when I let you put it on me
You better give me what I want baby
Oh my God...
There's no shame in feeling
As long as it feels right (Oh my God)
Our love this is natural
There's nothing wrong with, nothing wrong with that
Sex, what you know about sex?
Tell me what you know about sex
Sex, what you know about sex?
CHORUS:
Oh my God, you're so hot
Pull my hair, let me get on top

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

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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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
CHORUS:
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

SORRY (REMIX)
Written by Madonna and Stuart Price
THE CONFESSIONS TOUR VIDEO INTERLUDE 2006

Speak...
Don't say forgive me (forgive me)
Don't say you're sorry
I can't take it anymore
Can't take it, can't take it, can't take it, can't take it anymore
I've listened to all your lies (then all your stories)
And I (and I) can't take it anymore
Can't take it, can't take it, can't take it, can't take it anymore
Don't say forgive me (I've heard it all before)
Don't say you're sorry (I've seen it all before)
And I (and I), I've heard it all before
Don't talk, don't speak
Don't (sorry) talk (sorry), don't (sorry) speak (sorry)
Don't (sorry) talk (sorry), don't speak
Don't (sorry) talk (sorry), don't (sorry) speak (sorry)
Don't (sorry) talk (sorry), don't (sorry) speak (sorry)
Don't (sorry) talk (sorry), don't (sorry) speak (sorry)
Don't (sorry) talk (sorry), don't speak


SUPERNATURAL
Written by Madonna and Patrick Leonard
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 su-supernatural thing)
(Gonna have my fill)
(It gives me such a big thrill to be with)
(A su-supernatural thing)

TAKE A BOW (Alternate demo)
Written by Babyface and Madonna
BEDTIME STORIES ALBUM DEMO 1994

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...say good-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
Say good-bye (say good-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
Say good-bye

When we're together
It's thunder and lightning
The way I love you is frightening...

Everything will be okay, oh, oh

THE BEAST WITHIN
Remixed by Lenny Kravitz and Madonna
RE-INVENTION TOUR INTRO VIDEO 2004

Prophecy...
Prophecy...
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
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
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
I know your tribulation and your poverty
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 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
Then he must to be slam
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
People 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
And he said to me...
Do not seal up the words of the prophecy
For the time is near
Behold...
I am coming soon
I am the alpha and the omega
The first and the last
The Beginning...

THE BEAT IS SO CRAZY (Eve feat. Madonna)
Written by Madonna and Pharrell Williams
HARD CANDY ALBUM DEMO 2008

Eve:
Some nights all alone
Thoughts of you coming creepy in
Temporarily and say 'cause you'll never gonna change
No!
We had good times with the bad
Always out with what we had
Keep your pride, I'm not mad
Make me feel like love's a fad
I'd always thought
We'd be happily forever
CHORUS:
Madonna:
The beat is so crazy
It makes me wanna let go
And totally forget the day
I'm better off anyway
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Eve:
Never thought I
Was the type to hang around
Lied to myself constantly
About the person I thought you would be
Who's to blame, I guess it's me
I caused my own misery
Tit for tat, this and that
I needed my own life back
Now here I am,
I'm so happy it's time to move on!
CHORUS:
Madonna:
The beat is so crazy
It makes me wanna let go
And totally forget the day
I'm better off anyway
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Eve:
We had, we had, we had,
Madonna:
Are you listening?
Eve:
We had good times with the bad
Always out with what we had
Keep your pride, I'm not mad
Make me feel like love's a fad
I'd always thought
We'd be happily forever
I'd always thought (what you want her to do?) now here I am
I'd always thought (why can't you listen?) we'd be happily forever
CHORUS:
Madonna:
The beat is so crazy
It makes me wanna let go
And totally forget the day
I'm better off anyway
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh


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
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
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
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


THE POWER OF GOOD-BYE (Demo version)
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO 1998

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
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no, walk away
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, walk away
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
Freedom comes when you learn to let go
Creation comes when you learn to say no, walk away
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
There's nothing left to lose
There's no more heart to bruise
There's no greater power than the power of good-bye
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 left 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
Good-bye...
God help me to learn to say good-bye...
Please give me the power of good-bye...

TIME STOOD STILL
Written by Madonna and William Orbit
THE NEXT BEST 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...


TO HAVE AND NOT TO HOLD (Demo version)
Written by Madonna and Rick Nowels
RAY OF LIGHT ALBUM DEMO 1998

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...
I, I read you've been told
Not to have, not to hold
I, I read you've been told
Not to have, not to hold...


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


TRIGGERING (YOUR SENSES)
Written by Madonna and Mirwais Ahmadzaï
CONFESSIONS ON A DANCE FLOOR ALBUM DEMO 2005

CHORUS:
Dance
You're not fighting
Dance
You're not lying
Dance
You're not cheating
Dance
You're only triggering your senses
You're not dying
Dance
You're not crying
Dance
You're not killing yourself
You're only triggering your senses
You're only triggering your senses
Dance is a lovely friend
Dance to your heart's content
Dance and we don't pretend
Dance is your only friend
When you're on the street
To a different beat
When you're feeling down
When there's no one else around
CHORUS:
Dance
You're not taking
Dance
You're not hating
Dance
You're not kiling yourself
You're only triggering your senses
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:
Dance
You're not fighting
Dance
You're not lying
Dance
You're not cheating
Dance
You're only triggering your senses
You're not dying
Dance
You're not crying
You're not killing yourself
You're only triggering your senses
You're only triggering your senses
Triggering your senses
Triggering your
Dance...


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

It's a special time...
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
CHORUS:
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, au!
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
CHORUS:
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, au!
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)


TWO STEPS BEHIND ME
Written by Madonna
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 2014

You're a copycat, get back
I'm always on your mind
Take a photograph like that
Always ahead of my time
I give you a heart attack bumbaclot
Where is my royalty
You're a pretty girl, I give you that
Stealing my recipe
Here we go again, in your fantasy
You can try it all but you can't be me
You can walk the walk, even talk the talk
But you'll always be two steps behind me
CHORUS:
In my shadow, two steps behind me
Out of ammo, you're never gonna be
On my level, two steps behind me
In my shadow, you're just a wannabe-me
Like a sister all messed up
Who's gonna help you out
It's an ugly look princess
What are you all about
Did you study me hard enough
Trying to be a boss?
Yeah that's cool and all get in line
Tickets are gonna cost
Here we go again, in your fantasy
You can try it all but you can't be me
You can walk the walk, even talk the talk
But you'll always be two steps behind me
CHORUS:
In my shadow, two steps behind me
Out of ammo, you're never gonna be
On my level, two steps behind me
In my shadow, you're just a wannabe-me
Never gonna be me, just a wannabe-me
Just a wannabe-me
Never gonna be me, just a wannabe-me
Here we go again, in your fantasy
You can try it all but you can't be me
You can walk the walk, even talk the talk
But you'll always be two steps behind me
CHORUS:
In my shadow, two steps behind me
Out of ammo, you're never gonna be
On my level, two steps behind me
In my shadow, you're just a wannabe-me
Never gonna be me, just a wannabe-me
Just a wannabe-me
Never gonna be me, just a wannabe-me


UP DOWN SUITE
Written by Madonna and Shep Pettibone
RAIN SINGLE B-SIDE 1993

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) 


VENI VIDI VICI
Written by Madonna, Thomas Wesley Pentz, Ariel Rechtshaid, Maureen McDonald, Toby Gad and Jones
REBEL HEART ALBUM DEMO 2014

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
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh 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
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
I conquered...
Conquered...
Ohhh...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
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered
Oohh I came, I saw, I conquered


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 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

That made me open my heart
So I could make a new start, oh baby
You are the one
What once was lost, is found
You changed my way of thinking...
