    General Comment:This song is easy to understand! I am a Kabbalist so I know what she is meaning.
    Basically the "4 minutes" is a concept about not wasting time. How people think they want to do something - but they never get around to doing it. and how each minute is important. Thats why the lyric is "the road to hell is paved with good intentions". its again its about people not acting and just wasting time and thinking about it. Its also about your "Conciousness". Meaning if your head isnt in the right place - you wont get it. Which means, if you want something, your thoughts create what you want. The thin about the boy and girl - is also about how life can change by having children. Anyway, its a concept about important things are to get done, and how we all talk and dont get them done>

    Song Meaning:This song is about "The Law of Attraction". It's a warning to everyone as to what's going on on a cosmic level. If you're not familiar with Rhonda Byrnes book the secret that came out around 2006, Madonna is trying to pass on some very important information as to what's going to happen in 2012 and IS happening now. The law of attraction is a universal law that says what you put your attention on you attract. So if you say I am a healthy person you attract health, but if you say I don't want cancer...guess what you're attracting? Yup...cancer. "4 minutes to save the world is just that." 4 minutes to try to educate the masses. I teach this as well as mind, body, and spirit. Visit my website for more info on the changes we are currently going through and will go through. I have links on my links page that should help. Much love and peace!

    General Comment:She writes alot about the law of attraction and this kind of secret that she knows and she is always hinting and putting random subliminals or double meanings into her words that can be taken in so many ways that it is hard to decifer unless you are into these things, like kabbalah, law of attraction, worship of baphomet and hecate, some people translate it into even christianity although Madonna frequently bashes religion.

    General Comment:Love madonna. Loved confessions. Was expecting a lot more from this song. Justin sucks and he's singing most of the song, and that he's featuring madonna..
    I don't think this is her best work. Its very unlike madonna to bow down and conform/copy what is popular these days. But people criticized confessions before it came out and it turned out to be a great record. Let's hope this is the worst song off hard candy.

    General Comment:I love Madonna, I'm a huge fan of her and her music! BUT this song...I don't like it!! What happened to Madonna? I think the music of this song isn't special, the lyrics neither...I hope the rest of the album is better!
