"A Moment of Madness" as written by Guy Chambers and Katie Melua....
A moment of madness
It's happened before
It could turn into sadness or a civil war
You've got me changing all i ever thought

When you first got so mad lost your rag
Trying to save some trees
Angry cries, saw your thighs
And I fell to my knees
Oh my God what is it?
It's a moment of madness

When we drank too much beer
Lost our fear
Our defenses were down
you got up tried your luck
Bought a dubious round
It can be hard to resist
It's a moment of madness

A promise of passion
A trailer of sin
A smiling assassin
The demon within Endorphins are raging
Resistance is thin

And you're blowing my mind
'Cause I find that your theories of life
Are insane, feed my brain
I could listen all night
I can't leave till we kiss
It's a moment of madness

And I just wanna stare at your hair
And imagine you opening your door
In your drawer there's some leather in there
I refuse, you persist
It's a moment of madness

You know I'm not asking a lot
Only your life
I don't want to get what I want
But I'm gonna ask you to stop But I'm full of lies

When you first got so mad lost your rag
Trying to save some trees
Angry cries, saw your thighs
And I fell to my knees
Oh my God what is it?
It's a moment of madness

And I just wanna stare at your hair
And imagine you opening you door
In your drawer there's some leather in there
I refuse, you persist
It's a moment of madness

    General Commenti believe this is about S&M.

    this song was written in a time, when S&M still was not quite accepted.
    when you were submissive, you were considered to be stupid. what woman would WANT to be sumissive, when all those older generation of women has FOUGHT so hard for equality?

    if you were dominant, and a woman, you must most likely be a bitch or a witch.
    if you were dominant, and a man, you were a sick basterd. a sadist.

    little do people know that in S&M it is all about trust and freedom of will.
    the submissive CHOOSES to surrender.
    you can not choose to BE submissive. this is in your character.
    it is much like being a hetero, or homosexual.
    you do not CHOOSE to be it.
    you are...or you are NOT.

    the song tells about how she fell to her knees...
    - oh my god, what is this? -
    the very first time, you realise you WANT to be submissive...you WANT to be on your knees...and when you realise this actually feels GOOD for you...
    this is such a strange feeling.
    you have to grow into it.
    address it for yourself. look at the feeling. taste it...

    look at this piece of tekst in the song:

    - And imagine you opening your door
    In your drawer there's some leather in there
    I refuse, you persist
    It's a moment of madness

    leather....like a whip? like leather cuffs? like leather clothing?

    - i refuse, you persist -
    i do not 'taste' REAL resistance in this sentence...it is sung much too sweet to have the meaning of real resistance.
    it is more like the playfull 'catch-me-if-you-can' refuse...

    you persist....
    well, what submissive would even WANT a bdsm master that would NOT persist?
    it is all that makes it worth while!

    but there is more. much more to bdsm what most people do not know.
    it is more about commitment than a normal marriage.

    look at this piece of tekst:

    You know I'm not asking a lot
    Only your life
    I don't want to get what I want
    But I'm gonna ask you to stop But I'm full of lies

    a submissive gives herself to a master. (or misstress)
    he/she surrenders.
    gives his/her full trust into anothers hands...
    but...
    also expects something in return.
    his full love and attention. his life , so to speak.

    - i don't want to get what i want -
    this is about the struggle in the beginning with yourself.
    WHAT is it that i want??? to BE submissive??? to be on my KNEES?
    NO !!!
    i must be crazy.
    i do not want this.
    i could not possibly want this...
    or do i...?

    - i will ask you to stop, but i am full of lies -
    it takes a very strong mind to admit that you WANT to be submissive...

    and that never is easy in the beginning,...when you have not yet fully accepted it about yourself.
