"Easy Ride" as written by and Monte Lee Pittman . Madonna....
I want the good life
But I don't want an easy ride
What I want is to work for it
Feel the blood and sweat on my fingertips
That's what I want for me

I want to know everything
Maybe someday I will
What I want is to find my place
Breathe the air and feel the sun on my children's face
That's what I want

I go round and round just like a circle
I can see a clearer picture
When I touch the ground I come full circle
To my place and I am home
I am home

I want to let go of all disappointment
That's waiting for me
What I want is to live forever
Not defined by time and space
It's a lonely place
That's what I want

I go round and round just like a circle
I can see a clearer picture
When I touch the ground I come full circle
To my place and I am home
I am home

I go round and round just like a circle
I can see a clearer picture
When I touch the ground I come full circle
To my place and I am home
I am home

I go round and round just
Round and round just

    General CommentI love this song...can't believe no one has commented on it...while I think the arrangement and production is one of madonna's/mirwais finest (the strings! the electro twisted part at the end!) as this site is about lyrics I'll talk about them....

    this is obviously about madonna's notorious ambition but also about her spiritual beliefs (not sure what religious tip she was on when she wrote this but it seems to be quite buddist with ideas about life being a circle - like karma, maybe this is also an aspect of the kabbala).

    I love the line 'not defined by time and space, it's a lonely place'. Here I think she is talking about a few things, how firstly, every aspect of human exisitence is culturally and historically specific, so madonna doesn't want this for herself, as in she is some how different to everyone else. I also think she is making reference to how critics are concerned with madonna as latching onto current trends - here she says she is above all that!

    MemoryAgreed with the sentiment. Easy Ride is an ironic title with an Evita/Madonna/Kabbalah twist. What Madonna is crying about here in this ballad Ciccone concerto is that she will live forever because Madonna is Immortal! Happy birthday Madonna!
