Madonna – Live To Tell lyrics

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

Chorus:

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

[Chorus:]

2nd chorus:

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

[Chorus:]
(2nd chorus)

    Live to tell is a very beautiful song that clearly means a lot to madonna. It's definitely the rock equivalent of F. Scott fitzgerald's cautionary novel the great gatsby-about how madonna rises and triumphs in the face of a harrowing childhood to get to where she is today-the best rock singer of her generation. Her beautiful voice gathers all the strength it can muster-there is sadness. More than that-there's hope in live to tell. In the evidence of madonna's brilliance!
