Rescue Me

Lyrics Print lyrics

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 kneeling 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

(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 your rope)

 

Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, love is understanding

Ooh ahh, ooh ahh, 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 that you can rescue me

(I believe that you can rescue me)

 

I believe

(I believe in the power)

I believe that you can rescue me

(I believe that you can rescue me)

 

I'm singing I believe

(I believe in the power)

I believe that you can rescue me

(I believe that you can rescue me)

I'm singing, I'm singing, I'm singing

(I believe in the power)

I believe that you can rescue me

(I believe that you can rescue me)

 

I'm talking, I'm talking

(I believe in the power)

I believe in the power of love

(I believe that you can rescue me)

 

I'm talking, I'm talking

(I believe in the power)

I believe in the power of love

(I believe that you can rescue me)

 

I'm singing, I'm singing, I believe

(I believe in the power)

I believe that you can rescue me

(I believe that you can rescue me)

 

Hey hey, hey hey

(I believe in the power)

R.E.S.C.U.E. me

(I believe you can rescue me)

Only you can rescue me

Hey hey, hey...

(I believe in the power)

(I believe you can rescue me)

(I believe in the power)

(I believe you can rescue me)

Single

Rescue Me, the singleBoth of the new tracks on The Immaculate Collection were released as singles. After the success of Justify My Love, Rescue Me was released in February 1991 (US) - April 1991 (Europe). This song, which shows how powerful Madonna's voice really is, is my personal favorite. Though often over-looked, it was a top 10 hit, reaching #9 in the US (Gold), #3 in the UK and #4 in Canada. In Japan and Australia it was good for respectively #11 and #15. On the Hot Dance / Club Play it peaked at #5.

Video

After finishing her Blond Ambition Tour and releasing Justify My Love (with all the commotion surrounding the controversial video), Madonna was busy with movie projects and other stuff, so she lacked the time to make a video to support Rescue Me. Since Rescue Me was never performed live, there couldn't be a live performance video either, so it became one of the few Madonna singles without a video. However, some music channels showed a video compiled of different live performances.
