"Something To Remember" as written by and Madonna Ciccone Patrick Leonard....
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

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?

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

    General CommentI agree with Aussie Friend/Mate Richoad! Something to Remember is a very beautiful and meaningful Madonna ballad-one of Lady Ciccone's best ever performances. In this song, there is a lot of beautiful sadness, absolute feeling and raw emotion in her voice-Madonna is crying beautiful Sad and Wet Tears for the world to hear. In Something to Remember, Inside-Madonna's All Still Wet Because She is Sad that She Has to Live without Sean or Guy, the Two Loves She Has Lost but She Will Always Remember and Never Forget Her Soulmates. All Alone Madonna Cries in Wet Sadness and Lonely Tears. Something to Remember-The best album cut the lady has ever recorded-Madonnna's best song ever!

    MemoryI wholeheartedly agree with my Aussie Friend/Mate Richoad! Something to Remember is a very beautiful, touching and meaningful-dare I say it?-heartfelt and moving Madonna ballad-one of Lady Ciccone/Peron/Simpson's best ever Detroit performanes-full of character, Fortinitude and sadness as only Madonna can do it. In this sad song, there's a lot of beautiful sadness, absolute feeling and raw emotion in her beautiful voice that I Cry When I Hear This Song-Madonna is crying Beautiful, Sad and Wet Tears for the world to hear. Something to Remember may be Lady Madge's most singular and beautiful song in a brilliant career of I-didn't-know-she-could-do-that moments. In sad ballad Something to Remember, Inside-Madonna's All Still Wet because she is sad that she has to live without Sean or Guy-the two loves Queen Maddy has irrevocably lost. However, Lady Madonna will Always Remember and Never Forget her soulmates that have affected her life in a positive way. All Alone Madonna Cries in Wet Sadness and Lonely Tears. Something to Remember-the best album cut/Non-Single the lady has ever recorded-Madonna's best song ever! Hail Madonna, Full of grace!
