"Jump" as written by and Stuart Price . Madonna....
There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that I wait, the more time that I waste

I haven't got much time to waste, it's time to make my way
I'm not afraid I'll face, but I'm afraid to stay
I'm going down my own road and I can make it alone
All work and no fighting, I'll find a place of my own

Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby,
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to jump

We learned our lesson from the start, my sisters and me
The only thing you can depend on is your family
And life's gonna drop you down like the limbs of a tree
It sways and it swings and it bends until it makes you see

Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to, are you ready?

There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that you wait, the more time that you waste

All work and no fighting, I'll find a place of my own
It sways and it swings and it bends until you make it your own

I can make alone
I can make alone
I can make alone
I can make alone
I can make alone
I can make alone
I can make alone

Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to jump

Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to, are you ready?

    General CommentAll about taking decisions, doing things, taking risks in order to achieve your objectives in life without any repentence, with no regrets...and relying on your own strength, on the resistance of your mind and heart to keep on even with all the obstacles in your way. Also notice the beat on the song and the start and liste to PSB West End Girls :-) it was her way to pay homage to them, and she did it with a great song.

    MemoryJump is Madonna's inspire anthem. She cries and writes "I Can Make It Alone!" because she thanks her fanbase and Rolling Stone for 30 years of Future Brilliance! My Confession on this Dance Floor-I love Jump. Love you Madonna!

    General CommentI like this so much too. The music video is cool and i think madonna actually looks better than she did in any of the other COADF ones. I didnt like her hair that way when i saw a pic of it, but when i saw it in the context of the video clip.. i liked it. Lol, my music tastes are queerer than my little sisters.

    General CommentMadonna is such an awesome person. With all the criticism she takes it obvious she's still a good person (understatement).
    I think the song has to do with taking a "jump" on your own in life and not depending on anyone (until your established) and just taking life in stride...

    General CommentThis is SUCH a motivational song...basically she's telling you to take a chance and just gooooo! JUMP! "There’s only so much you can learn in one place,
    The more that I wait, the more time that I waste" is saying do not stay stagnant. Once you've reached saturation level in your current state, it's time to MOVE ON and learn more things...experience something different...keep jumping and you'll always land on your feet because "I can make it alone..." You're strong enough to take a chance and go for it. How motivating! And you know that's how she's lived her life to have reached such success. fame and fortune!!

    General CommentThis song was used so perfectly in the season 2 finale of Ugly Betty. I like the way Betty refernced the title of the song used/episode in her story about how she was so scared to jump off the diving board but she did it, Just like the next stage of her life where shes making the big decision with Gio or Henry. This song speaks for itself. I agree with anakin this is such an inspirational song it makes me want to get ready for the next phase of life! Get ready to Jump!

    xoxo
