Live to tell-Madonna

Ayer cogí unos cuantos Cds antiguos, que no oía hace muchos años. Tenía que  conducir un rato largo y me apetecía oír mi música.
Tengo un disco de baladas de Madonna que vine oyendo a las 12 y pico de la noche sola mientras conducía.
no sé describiros qué supone para mi esta canción, una mezcla de tristeza y fuerza. Quizás es lo que mejor me describe ahora.

“Live To Tell”

I have a tale to tell
Sometimes it gets so hard to hide it well
I was not ready for the fall
Too blind to see the writing on the wall


A man can tell a thousand lies
I’ve learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned, ‘till then
It will burn inside of me

I know where beauty lives
I’ve seen it once, I know the warm she gives
The light that you could never see
It shines inside, you can’t take that from me


[2nd Chorus:]

The truth is never far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again

If I ran away, I’d never have the strength
To go very far
How would they hear the beating of my heart
Will it grow cold
The secret that I hide, will I grow old
How will they hear
When will they learn
How will they know

[2nd chorus]
