Your Favorite Madonna Lyrics

Recommended Posts

Lyrics that have touched you personally. The ones that make you say, "This is why I'm a Madonna fan!"

I have so many. I've shortened my list to these:

- Something's missing and I don't know why, I always feel the need to hide my feelings from you

- Pain is a warning that something’s wrong

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

- You plant the seed and I'll watch it grow, I wonder when I'll start to show, I wonder if I'll ever know

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

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

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

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

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

- 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

- I’ve had other guys, I’ve looked into their eyes but I never knew love before till you walked through my door

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

- Let all the hurt inside of you die

last but not least...

- 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

- "I know where beauty lives
I've seen it once
I know the warmth she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside
You can't take that from me"

- "Well I know from experience
That if you have to ask for something
More than once or twice
It wasn't yours in the first place
And that's hard to accept
When you love someone
And you're led to believe
In their moment of need
That they want what you want
When they don't"

- "When you looked into my eyes
And you said goodbye
Could you see my tears
When I turned the other way
Did you hear me say
I'd wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky
You promised me when you said goodbye
That you'd return when the storm was done
And now I'll wait for the light
I'll wait for the sun
Till I feel your..."

- "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"

- "And the ground gave way beneath my feet
And the earth took me in her arms
Leaves covered my face
Ants marched across my back
Black sky opened up
Blinding me

I ran to the forest
I ran to the trees
I ran and I ran
I was looking for me
I ran to the lakes
And up to the hill
I ran and I ran
I'm looking there still

And I smelt her burning flesh
Her rotting bones
Her decay
I ran and I ran
I'm still running away"

- "It's quiet as it is tonight
You almost think you were safe
Your eyes are full of surprises
They cannot predict my fate
Waiting underneath the stars
There's something you should know
The angels they surround my heart
Telling me to let you go"

When your lips are burning mine
And you take the time to tell me how you feel
When you listen to my words
And I know you've heard, I know it's real
Rain is what this thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I'm not
I'm gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your...

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall

A man can tell a thousand lies
I've learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, 'till then
It will burn inside of me

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

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

If I ran away, I'd never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear the beating of my heart
Will it grow cold
The secret that I hide, will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know

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

Get up, stand tall
Put your back up against the wall
'Cause my love is dangerous
This is a bust

You think you can have my love for free
Well I've got news for you, that's not the way it's gonna be
So don't come hangin' round my door
If you're not ready to give, you're not gonna get much more

I don't want to live out your fantasy
Love's not that easy
This time you're gonna, gonna have to play my way
Come on make my day

Can you feel the rhythm of my mind
Boy, I've got so much to give, but I don't want to waste my time
I can't let my heart put on a show
'Til you surrender baby, you've got to let it go

Drop your weapons, you'd better come clean
I've got you covered, I'll catch you when you fall to me
I'm not gonna hurt you, 'cause I'm not that kind
We're not goin' nowhere 'till you have a change of mind

"You haven't got a chance, come out with your hands up"
'Come out with your hands up', the man says
How do ya like that, ma? Heh!
Here's my answer, you dirty ...

[Get up, stand tall]
Come on baby make my day
['Cause my love is dangerous]
Gonna have to play my way

[Get up, stand tall]
Put your back up against the wall
['Cause my love is dangerous]
This is a bust

Get up, get up, get up, get up
['Cause my love is dangerous]
This is a bust

I'm so good for you, baby here I come
I'm gonna get to you before the day is done
['Cause my love is dangerous]
This is a bust

[Get up, stand tall]
Come on baby make my day
['Cause my love is dangerous]
Gonna have to play my way

You guys have hit upon some of my favorites!

I'll add:

"I go round and round just like a circle, I can see a clearer picture. When I touch the ground, I come full circle to my place and I am home, I am home."

"I am the sorceress down in the deep, I am the earth under your feet."

"Don't want to get to the end of my days saying I wasn't amazed."

"I can't be a super hero right now, even hearts made out of steel can break down."

"Voices start to ring in your head, tell me what do they say. Distant echoes from another time start to creep in your brain."

"I can see your face in our secret place, you're not just a memory. Say goodbye to yesterday, those are words I'll never say."

"I like your silhouette when you stand on the street, like a samurai you can handle the heat. Makes me want to pray for a haunted man."

Wow, so many incredible lyrics. She really is an amazing songwriter!!

There are way too many for me to list, but Rebel Heart has some of the best ever:

Who am I to decide what should be done?
If this is the end, then let it come.

We're only here to love

Like there's no tomorrow

So let's live each moment like

Our time is only borrowed

Love is pain and pain is art

Show me your graffiti heart

Never say never

Anything is possible

Always been a rebel

Overcoming obstacles

I can't give you perfect

But I can give you forever

I said oh no, I want more

That's not what I'm looking for - what an incredibly powerful line, it gives me chills. This is MADONNA, through and through

So I took the road less traveled 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

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 gotta practice what you preach

You pay with sweat and tears

Overcome your fears

Never let the fire inside you leave

I can't


2 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 side 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

I don't wanna talk about it right now

Just hold me while I cry my eyes out

I can't be a superhero right now

Even hearts made out of steel can break down

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 value, nothing is in vain
