Seems I've played the game for much too long
I let people buy my love and I
Never got to sing my songs for you.

I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose.
In the game of love you pay your dues.

Say that happiness cannot be measured,
And a little pain can bring you all life's little pleasures.
What a joke.

[Chorus:]

I was not your woman, I was not your friend,
But you gave me something to remember.
No other man said love yourself
Nobody else can.
We weren't meant to be,
At least not in this lifetime,
But you gave me something to remember.
I hear you still say, "Love yourself".

I had all my bets laid all on you
Set your stakes too high, you're bound to lose.
In the game of love I've paid my dues.

Guess I'm waiting for my place in your sun,
Wish I had the chance to know you and it wasn't stormy weather.
What a shame, who's to blame?

[chorus]

    Out of all madonna chansons ballades, something to remember is a beautiful detroit ballad, the best example out of many i-didn't-know-she-could-do-that moments. However, madonna is exactly like that! Trying to dry her tears that are all still wet from tragedy and sadness
    -her mother's death, two men she loved and lost and and overall sense of melancholy, madonna cries alone and full of emotion. But in her own way, madonna's sadness is extremely heartfelt, touching and beautiful. Madonna is one of those singers who only come along once in a lifetime. The way madonna sings and cries something to remember is indeed beautiful. That is why her ladyship will never be forgotten. Because of madonna, i have climbed the tree of life!
