LET'S KARAOKE 12 : MADONNA - SECRET

I guess I did mention that I once liked Madonna (very much) and loved her music (a lot). So I will be putting a few karaokes from her from time to time (for old times' sake, of course). My interest in her music waned after she released her 'Ray Of Light' album. The only songs that I like from that album are 'Frozen' and 'Nothing Really Matters'. I gave the other songs a once-over and decided that either Madonna's music was getting too old for me or I was getting too old for her music (fact : both Madonna and I are getting old). 'Secret' was released as the first single from her 'Bedtime Stories' album and upon the first listening, the hypnotic guitar riff at the beginning of the song sent a tingling sensation down my spine which got me hooked on the rest of the song. I guess 'Secret' will always be one of my favourite Madonna songs ever alongside 'Crazy For You' and 'Live To Tell'.

Things haven't been the same
Since you came into my life
You found a way to touch my soul
And I'm never, ever, ever gonna let it go

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your secret with me

Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

You gave me back the paradise
That I thought I lost for good
You helped me find the reasons why
It took me by surprise that you understood

You knew all along
What I never wanted to say
Until I learned to love myself
I was never ever lovin' anybody else

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your secret with me

Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Happiness lies in your own hand
It took me much too long to understand
How it could be
Until you shared your secret with me

Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over, mmm mmm
Something's comin' over me
My baby's got a secret

Mmm mmm, my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm, my baby's got a secret
Mmm mmm, my baby's got a secret for me
Mmm mmm, mmm mmm, mmm mmm
