"I Deserve It" as written by and Mirwais Ahmadzai . Madonna....
This guy was meant for me
And I was meant for him
This guy was dreamt for me
And I was dreamt for him

This guy has danced for me
And I have danced for him
This guy has cried for me
And I have cried for him

Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

This guy has prayed for me
And I have prayed for him
This guy was made for me
And I was made for him

Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

I have no regrets
There's nothing to forget
All the pain was worth it

Not running from the past
I tried to do what's best
I know that I deserve it

Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

Many miles, many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts, many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

And I thank you

    General CommentDepending on my mood, i interpret it 2 ways:

    1) It's either a very melancholy love song...she's saying that this guy's so perfect for her, and she knows that she deserves to have him, but that she doesn't think it's gonna happen. The melody of the song is kind of lonely.

    2) She realizes that every screw up on the way to finding this guy was worth it, and because she went through all of that she knows that she deserves it. And my favorite part of the whole song is when she says at the end: "And I thank you..."

    MemoryAt least it's a comfort to know that Madonna still loves Guy even though the marriage is over. In sad acoustic artwork, I Deserve It, the friendship remains unbroken. Love is the most important thing in Madonna's life. For that, the fans are grateful. In I Deserve It, Madonna Cries happy guitar tears. She won't change a single thing about her brilliant American Life-I Deserve It is a ballad to Cherish always. Thanks Madge for your strength!!

    General CommentI've always seen this song in a positive way. It's melancholic, of course... But I think it is because she's sorry that it took her so long to meet the one who is perfect for her.
    She found what she's been looking for and she thanks him for being so perfect. They are meant for each other. Even if it wasn't easy to find him, she doesn't regret all of her mistakes and all of the painful things she's been through because all that has lead her to him

    General CommentI think it's about waiting to be with someone, holding out for them...and it's not necessarily happening.
