MESSIAH

Recommended Posts

Messiah is possibly her most beautiful ballad ever. At least for me it's the most emotional.

This!!

:inlove:

Been listening to the song quite a lot lately.

As someone wrote here, there's a very strong Pat Leonard influence poured into it.

Right after she sings "till you wake up and you find that you love me too" I swear I can hear "Dear Jessie" music.

I've been listening to this song everyday for last five days.

It keeps me sane.

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
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
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
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
:inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

This line kills me. The thought of living your life without feeling the fulfillment of true love...

That's an interesting take, it hasn't crossed my mind that it's about that.

Messiah is really growing on me.

My sister who used to be a big madonna fan but hadn't listened to Rebel Heart at all before she attended her concert said Messiah sounded like a James Bond theme song lol

Not with its lyrics of course. The tune could pass off

What I love most about this song is that these are perhaps the most visually and symbolically rich lyrics in a Madonna song ever!

The tour has made me love Messiah so much, it's now one of my most played from the album where as I used to skip it before :o

It's such a great track full of emotions and deep meanings.

I think Messiah is about the embodiment of Mother Earth/ the moon and the air which in Marian religions are represented by the Madonna (the female part of God) as in contrast with the fire and the sun which are represented by Jesus (the son). I've always thought of the song as being profoundly spiritual and religious. Obviously Messiah is the name..

Any thoughts on this?

Can some music geek here edit out the defective blowout sound of the second chorus. The song would be 10/10 without this mixing tragedy...:cries:

I always want to listen to Spanish Eyes after this!!! I think it's cause the "I'll light a candle here in the dark..." reminds me of "I light this candle, and watch it throw, tears on my pillow..." I would love some kind of medley mashup of Messiah/Masterpiece/Spanish Eyes lol

This has definitely become one of my Madonna favorites - much higher than some more "obvious" songs

Same here! I always connect Messiah and Spanish Eyes!

Album: "Iconic(Demos)" what is that? :rotfl:

That's how they named the leaked selection of demos in late 2014, it even came with a lazy album cover
