"Rescue Me" as written by and Shep Pettibone . Madonna....
I'm talking, I'm talking
I believe in the power of love
I'm singing, I'm singing
I believe that you can rescue me

With you I'm not a little girl
With you I'm not a man
When all the hurt inside of me
Comes out, you understand
You see that I'm ferocious
You see that I am weak
You see that I am silly
And pretentious and a freak
But I don't feel too strange for you
Don't know exactly what you do
I think when love is pure you try
To understand the reasons why
And I prefer this mystery
It cancels out my misery
And gives me hope that there could be
A person that loves me

Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe)
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe) I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope

With you I'm not a fascist
Can't play you like a toy
And when I need to dominate
You're not my little boy
You see that I am hungry
For a life of understanding
And you forgive my angry little heart
When she's demanding
You bring me to my knees
While I'm scratching out the eyes
Of a world I want to conquer
And deliver and despise
And right while I am standing there
I suddenly begin to care
And understand that there could be
A person that loves me

Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe)
Your love has given me hope
Rescue me (rescue me, it's hard to believe) I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope

Love is understanding
It's hard to believe
Life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Stop me from drowning
Baby I'll do the rest

Rescue me (rescue me)
Your love has given me hope (your love has given me hope)
Rescue me (rescue me) I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope

Rescue me (rescue me)
Your love has given me hope (your love has given me hope)
Rescue me (rescue me) I'm drowning
Baby throw out your rope (baby throw out the rope)

Ooh aah, ooh aah, love is understanding
Ooh aah, ooh, aah love is understanding

Love is understanding
It's hard to believe
Life can be so demanding
I'm sending out an S.O.S.
Rescue me, rescue me

It's not my business to decide
How good you are for me
How valuable you are
And what the world can see
Only that you try to understand me
And have the courage
To love me for me

I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe (I believe that you can rescue me)

I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe (I believe that you can rescue me)

I'm saying I believe (I believe in the power)
I believe (I believe that you can rescue me)

I'm saying, I'm saying, I'm saying, I believe that you can rescue me
I'm talking, I'm talking, I believe in the power of love
I'm talking, I'm talking, I believe in the power of love

I'm singing, I'm singing I believe that you can rescue me
Hey hey hey, R-E-S-C-U-E M-E, only you can rescue me
Hey hey hey, I believe you can rescue me
I believe in the power, I believe you can rescue me

    General CommentI really like this song...it's about someone loving you for you. I really like the bit "you see that I am silly/and pretentious/and a freak"...she can be herself around him, show him all her silly little eccentricities 'cause gets her & its fine... so sweet.

    General CommentI looovve this song! As missme said, it's so sweet and yet forceful. And, what's funny, it's technically a rap.
