"Love Spent" as written by Priscilla Renea, . Madonna, William Orbit, Jean Paul Louis Baptiste, Alain Gordon Whyte, Ryan Buendia and Mike Mchenry....
You had all of me, you wanted more
Would you have married me if I were poor
Yes, if I was your treasury
You'd have found a time to treasure me

How come you can't see
All that you need
Is right here with me

Up Until the end
All this pretend
Wasn't for free

Hold me like your money
Tell me that you want me
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me
Now you have your money
Spend it 'til there's nothing
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me

If we opened up a joint account
Would it put an end to all your doubt
Frankly if my name was Benjamin
We wouldn't be in the mess we're in

You played with my heart
'till death do we part
That's what you said
Now you have your fast cars
Women and bars
It's gone to your head

Hold me like your money
Tell me that you want me
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me
Love me like your money
Spend it 'til there's nothing
Spend your love on me
Spend your love on me

Spend your love on me

I want you to take me
Like you took your money
Take me in your arms
Until your last breath

I want you to hold me
Like you hold your money
Hold on to it
'Till there's nothing left

Love spent
Feeling love spent
Yeah, I'm love spent
Wondering where the love went
Love spent
Yeah I'm love spent
Really love spent
Wondering where it all went

I want you to take me
Like you took your money
Take me in your arms
Until your last breath

I want you to hold me
Like you hold your money
Hold me in your arms
Until there's nothing left (nothing left, nothing left)

Love spent
Feeling love spent
Yeah, I'm love spent
Wondering where the love went
Love spent
Yeah I'm love spent
Really love spent
Wondering where it all went

I want you to take me
Like you took your money
Take me in your arms
Until your last breath

I want you to hold me
Like you hold your money
Hold me in your arms
Until there's nothing left (nothing left, nothing left)

    General CommentOne of her best songs ever. Awesome lyrics, production...everything. Clearly about a man who was more into the money than her. Interesting, looks like about 30 years after "Material Girl", M finds herself on the other side of the situation.

    General CommentThis is clearly a song about someone who was in a relationship where money was more valuable than love.

    "How come you can't see/All that you need/Was right here with me"

    In the song it's almost as if she is begging her partner to realize that everything they need in life is with her. But he is more obsessed with cars, women and bars.

    Her mention of "now you have your bar" is a clear dig at Madonna's ex-husband, Guy Richie, because something that he wanted very clear in their divorce decree was that he gets the "bar" that they bought together.

    My InterpretationLove Spent-One of Madonna's saddest performances. She Cries because love is sad! Call Madonna the Unlucky Star who has lost at love! A highlight of the MDNA Tour! I Cried when Madonna sang this sad song! Once again, Madonna wins!

    My InterpretationLike I said in earlier post, Love Spent is about Madonna who is angry and sad about love. She is mentally exhausted. Call Love Spent the flip side of Eighties Classic a la Ciccone Material Girl. This time, Madonna got a raw deal! It seems that Guy Ritchie is the Material Boy! Madonna is mad as hell and she can't take it anymore. Is Love Spent her Network?

    General CommentThe ultimate insult for a guy is not only being called a "bitch" (Gang Bang), but also to be called a "gold digger."
