Favorite M lyrics ever

Into the Groove

Gonna get to know you

In a special way

This doesn't happen

To me everyday

Don't try to hide it love wears no disguise

I see the fire burning in your eyes

Only when I'm dancing can I feel this free

At night I lock the doors where no one else can see

I'm tired of dancing here all by myself

Tonight I wanna dance with someone else

Live to tell

I know where beauty lives

I've seen it once, I know the warm she gives

The light that you could never see

It shines inside, you can't take that from me

Physical Attraction

You say that you need my love

And you wantin' my body, I don't mind

Baby all I've got is time and I'm watin to make you mine

You say you wanna stay the night

But you leave me tomorrow I don't care

All of your moves are right, we can take it anywhere, this

Physcial attraction

It's a chemical reaction


Walking down a crowded avenue

Other faecs seem like nothing next to you

And I can't hear the traffic rushing by

Just the pounding of my heart and that's why

You must be an angel

I can see it in your eyes

Full of wonder and surprise

And just now I realize

Oooh you're an angel

In disguise I can see it in your eyes

Oh Father

Seems like yesterday

I lay down next to your boots and I prayed

For your anger to end

Oh father I have sinned

Just about all the lyrics from the song waiting off Erotica. Love the rhythm/flow of that track.

Future Lovers

Connect to the sky

Future lovers ride

Their ambitions high

Would you like to try

Let me be your guide

Put aside your pride

Future lovers hide

Love inside their eyes

Beat Goes On

You don't have the luxury of time

You have got to say what's on your mind

Head lost in the stars

You'll never go far
It's time to read the signs

Nothing Fails

I'm in love with you, you silly thing

Anyone can see

What is it with you, you silly thing

Just take it from me

It was not a chance meeting

Feel my heart beating

You're the one

To Have and Not To Hold

To love and 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

Just a few I had in mind

Almost every song (i.e. Spanish Lesson) has a line in it that I love and find myself constantly applying to my own life. I'm so glad that Rolling Stone listed her as one of the 100 greatest songwriters because her skills as a lyricist are often ignored or even worse maligned, but she is truly an astonishing songwriter that can capture a moment or feeling and turn it into lyrical gold.

Since there are so many I decided to list a single lyric from each album that I feel as a driving force in my life.

Madonna, "Burning Up"

Unlike the others I'd do anything

I'm not the same, I have no shame

Like a Virgin, "Over and Over"

You're never gonna see me standin' still

I'm never gonna stop 'til I get my fill

It doesn't matter who you are,

It's what you do that takes you far

True Blue, "Live To Tell"

The light that you could never see,

It shines inside, you can't take that from me

Like A Prayer, "Till Death Do Us Part"

You're not in love with someone else

You don't even love yourself

Still I wish you'd ask me not to go.

Erotica, "Why's It So Hard"

Who should get to say what I believe in

Who should have that right

What am I going to do with all this anger

Why do I have to fight

Bedtime Stories, "Love Tried To Welcome Me"

And I must confess that I am usually drawn to sadness

And loneliness has never been a stranger to me

Ray of Light, "The Power of Good-Bye"

You were my lesson I had to learn

I was your fortress you had to burn

Music, "Gone"

Why should I feel sad

For what I never had

Nothing equals nothing

American Life, "Intervention"

Sometimes it's such a pleasure

Sometimes I want to tear it all down

It's easy to be lazy

And hard to go away from the crowd

COADF, "Jump"

I'm going down my own road and I can make it alone

I'll work and I'll fight till I find a place of my own

Hard Candy, "Give It 2 Me"

They say that a good thing never lasts

And that it has to fall

Those are the people that did not

Amount to much at all

MDNA, "Falling Free"

When I let loose the need to know

Then we're both free, free to go

Rebel Heart, "Rebel Hert"

Through the darkness somehow I survived

Tough love - I knew it from the start

Deep down in the depth of my rebel heart

I want the good life

But I don't want an easy ride
What I want is to work for it
Feel the blood and sweat on my fingertips
That's what I want for me

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

Has To Be , my sig:

'I sholud be glad that I'm alive

It could have been much worse

I might have never loved at all

And never known what I am worth'


'Cherish the thought
Of always having you here by my side
Oh baby, I cherish the joy
You keep bringing it into my life
I'm always singing it
Cherish tyour strength
You got the power to make me feel good
Oh baby, I perish the thought
Of ever leaving, I never would'

Sanctuary, full !


"Well, I know from experience that if you have to ask

For something more than once or twice it wasn't yours in the first place
And that's hard to accept when you love someone
And you're led to believe in their moment of need
That they want what you want but they don't "


"Selling out is not my thing

Walk away, I won't be broken again
I'm not, I'm not what you think

Dream away your life
Someone else's dream
Nothing equals nothing

Letting go is not my thing
Walk away, won't let it happen again
I'm not, I'm not very smart

Why should I feel sad
For what I never had?
Nothing equals nothing

Turn to stone
Lose my faith
I'll be gone before it happens "

Love Tried To Welcome Me

"And I must confess that I

Am usually drawn to sadness
And loneliness has never been
A stranger to me but
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in

And I must confess
Instead of spring, it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still
Love tried to welcome me"

In general, the ballads are more powerful...

You're only here to wil

Get what they say

You're only here to win

Get what they do

All of the song Rebel Heart

Poor is the man, whose pleasures depend on the permission of another

Your heart is not open

So I must go

The spell has been broken

I loved you so..

Freedom comes when you learn to let go

Creation comes when you learn to say no..

You were my lesson I had to learn

I was you fortress, you had to burn

Pain is a warning that something's wrong

I pray to God that it won't be long

Live to Tell:

If I ran away, I'd never have the strength to go very far, how would they hear the beating of my heart

Will it grow cold, this secret that I hide, will I grow old, how will they hear, when will they learn, how will they know

Til Death Do Us Part:

He makes demands, she draws the line, he starts the fight, she starts the lie

But what is truth when something dies, he's not in love with her anymore

Vogue rap

What it Feels Like for a Girl:

Strong inside but you don't know it, good little girls, they never show it

When you open up your mouth to speak, could you be a little weak

American Life rap

Devil Wouldn't Recognize You:

You almost proved yourself this time, that all the saints be praised, you hide your sadness behind your smile, and you keep your lost heartbreaks

The steps that edge along the ledge, it's much higher than it seems, I've been on that ledge before, you can't hide yourself from me

I Fucked Ip:

We could've bought a house with a swimming pool, filled it up with Warhols, it would be so cool,

We could've gone riding stallions in the country side, with a pack of great danes, racing eye to eye

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

Devil Pray:

The ground beneath my feet's getting warmer, Lucifer is near

Holding on, but I'm getting weaker, watch me disappear

and many many others from Rebel Heart album

Don't explain yourself 'cause talk is cheap
There's more important things than hearing you speak

Easy Ride

I want the good life

But I don't want an easy ride

Into the Groove

Only when I'm dancing can I feel this free
At night I lock the doors, where no one else can see

It's So Cool

It's so cool to be uncool

Nothing Really Matters

Nothing takes the past away. Like the future

Nobody's Perfect

Nobody's perfect. What did you expect?

I'm doing my best

its so hard .. to pick from such a strong catalogue.

but the line that always makes me want to cry:

"how was I to know which way the story'd go; how was i to know you'd break ... you'd break my heart"

oh, and of course:

"sing la de da de"

So many. This is a serious question.

Just a sliver....

- I want to let go of all disappointment that's waiting for me

- Let all the hurt inside of you die

- Even though you're gone, life still carries on

- You met your match when you met me

- Why can't we learn to challenge the system, without living in pain

- You don't have the luxury of time, you have got to say what's on your mind

- I always wished that I could find someone as talented as you, but in the process I forgot that I was just as good as you

- I'm not afraid of what I'll face, but I'm afraid to stay

- Don't stand in the corner waiting for the chance, make your own music, start your own dance

- Clouds just disappear

- It was just greed, and it won't protect me

- Who am I to decide what should be done

- With you I'm not a fascist, can't play you like a toy. And when I need to dominate, you're not my little boy

- Open the door, unlock me. We've got tonight, so rock me

- And then we can scoop, scoop, scoop, scoodooly bee bop

- All of might, and life, and limb, could turn around and love again

- Why should I feel sad for what I never had?

- 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 are takers.

- It was time that I opened my eyes, I'm leaving the past behind

- And like a castle in the sand it had to fall apart

- There's nothing left to lose, there's no more heart to bruise

- Never say never, anything is possible. Always been a rebel, overcoming obstacles. I can't give you perfect but I can give you forever

- It all comes down to who's rich or poor, virgin or whore, it doesn't matter what you're praying for

- Wake-up ex-wife, this is your life

- You think that you are strong, but you are weak. It takes more strength to cry, admit defeat

- Now that your name pumps like the blood in my veins

- Rush me ghost you see. Every center my home. Fever steam girl. Throb the oceans

- My name is Dita, I'll be your mistress tonight

- You try to criticize my drive. If I lose I don't feel paralyzed

- And the next time you want pussy, huh, just look in the mirror, baby. Here kitty kitty.

- Hand fits giving so do it, that's what the gospel said to me

- Staring up into the heavens, in this hell that binds your hands. Will you sacrifice your comfort. Make your way in a foreign land

- 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

- I'm gonna show you the brighter side of living in sin

- I know where beauty lives. I've seen it once, I know the warmth she gives

- When you're trying hard to be your best, could you be a little less

- If I'm smart then I'll run away, but I'm not so I guess I'll stay

- You do it so often that you start to believe it, you have demons so nobody can blame you, but who is the master and who is the slave

- I've heard it all before

- And every man that walks through that door will be compared to you for ever more

- Many miles, many roads I have travelled, falling down on the way, many hearts, many years have unravelled leading up to today

- Maybe some day when I look back I'll be able to say, you didn't mean to be cruel, somebody hurt you too

- Something in the way you love me won't let me be

- I'm too busy surviving

- My heart is in your hand and yet you never stand close enough for me to have my way

- And all the books I've read and things I know, never taught me to laugh, never taught to let go

- I know you're scared tonight, I'll never leave your side
