Come Alive is that low key bop

It's the Body Shop of Madame X, the ending of the song lifts me up and leaves me such a sweet taste.

I tried transcribing the lyrics:

Come Alive - Madonna

I'm in the sky where I ought to be at
I've been watching you
Rocket ship taking off in that
Now I'm on to you
Mouth closed, I don't want your opinion
Who you talking to
Stand out, now I don't wanna blend in
Why you want me to

They say "Be all I can be"
And all I want is peace, please, please, please, please, please
See the world
Haven't seen all I wanna see, see, see, see, seen in his dreams

Come alive, come aliiiive
Come alive, come aliiive
Dreams real, it's alive
Come alive, come on

I can react how you thought I'd react
I won't live it for you (?!)
Wrong man, I won't stand in the back
Cause you want me to
Mouth closed, I don't want your opinion
Who you talking to
Stand out, now I don't wanna blend in
Why you want me to

They say "Be all I can be"
And all I want is peace, please, please, please, please, please
See the world
Haven't seen all I wanna see, see, see, see, seen in his dreams

Come alive, come aliiiive
Come alive, come aliiive
Dreams real, it's alive
Come alive, come on

Come alive, come alive (repeat)

Who you talking to?
Who you talking to?

I'm in the sky where I ought to be at
I've been watching you
Rocket ship taking off in that
Now I'm on to you
Mouth closed, I don't want your opinion
Who you talking to
Stand out, now I don't wanna blend in
Why you want me to

They say "Be all I can be"
And all I want is peace, please, please, please, please, please
See the world
Haven't seen all I wanna see, see, see, see, seen in his dreams

Come alive, come aliiiive
Come alive, come aliiive
Dreams real, it's alive
Come alive, come on

Come alive, come aliiiive
Come alive, come aliiive
Dreams real, it's alive
Come alive, come on

Come alive, come aliiiive
Come alive, come aliiive
Dreams real, it's alive
Come alive, come on

Wrong man, I won't stand in the back (2 x)

choir: Come Alive (repeat)

After 2-3 listenings... what a glorious ending of the song, you can feel happy and sad in the same time. Body Shop is a hybrid of Come Alive and I was never fond of Body Shop, but Come Alive is a masterpiece.

You're right, the ending takes the song into another realm.

I'm coming here for the 3rd time about this song. She really emotionally destroyed me with this one. Don't know why, maybe I take it too personally, but the second part of the song until the end is just 😭... probably because of the chorus and the strings.

Have you guys tried to listen to the song being high? The ending makes u feel like you are having a conversation with God itself.

Well, that's what I was trying to say, high or not, the ending makes me feel I am seeing M's life, my life in a few seconds while I'm leaving this world. It's so weird, yet so beautiful. I guess Come Alive will be one of my all time favourite personal songs I have witnessed in this lifetime.

The ending makes me feel like we have to appreciate Madonna in life. We are so lucky witness her making music.

This is one of the songs I look forward to hearing the most because I can’t begin to envision it.  Some have described it as similar to Body Shop while others claim it’s a mystical and enchanting song.

It's exactly both of them.

A glorious song --- so far my top favorite of the Madame X  songs  (sans the five promo singles). The outro is heavenly.
