Madonna
Live To Tell
1986
-----------------------------------

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

CHORUS:
A man can tell a thousand lies
I'ver learned my lesson well
Hope I live to tell
The secret I have learned
'Til then
It will burn inside of me

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

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

CHROUS:
The truth is near far behind
You kept it hidden well
If I live to tell
The secret I knew then
Will I ever have the chance again
