Drowned World / Substitute For Love
by Madonna (Ciccone)

I traded fame for love
Without a second thought
It all became a silly a game
Some things cannot be bought

I got exactly what I asked for
Wanted it so badly
Running, rushing back for more
I suffered fools so gladly

And now I find
I've changed my mind

The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love

I traveled round the world
Looking for a home
I found myself in crowded rooms
Feeling so alone

I had so many lovers
Who settled for the thrill
Of basking in my spotlight
I never felt so happy

The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love

Famous faces, far off places
Trinkets I can buy
No handsome stranger, heady danger
Drug that I can try
No ferris wheel, no heart to steal
No laughter in the dark
No one-night stand, no far-off land
No fire that I can spark

The face of you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love
Should I wait for you
My substitute for love
My substitute for love

Now I find I've changed my mind
This is my religion

Elle Amens!!!!!!! Completely agree! This was her last BEST piece of work. Ray of Light gave us an honest glimpse of where she was spiritually and being a new mother made her so relatable to her life long fans. We were on the journey with her. We got to see her vulnerable softer side. Now she’s made herself too complicated. This need to be “in” and on trend with the shit that is ruining our current airwaves. The mumbling and goofy beats that make no sense. It’s so sad. She needs to ditch the grillz, the dumb eye patch, her “perfect” makeup and the layers and layers of stupid clothing and jewelry. Wish she would go back to basics. Please stop with the lip injections and procedures. I wish she would take advice from her true fans that want our Madonna back. Unfortunately she surrounds herself with “yes” people and we get stuck with Madame X. 🤦🏽

The Ray of Light era was perfect. Smooth vocals, introspective lyrics, elegant and avant-garde videos, sophisticated style. This song and video epitomize the entire Madonna’s essence. Not to mention her hypnotic eyes at the end of the video, she has just bewitched me.

you feel the touch of William Orbit, he also did several remixes of some songs

@nathaniel JOHNSON I ain't agaisnt plastic surgery if it's tastefully done, but as with all these hollyweird types they often end up overdoing it and looking like freaks. Sure it's their face and they can ruin it any way they want to.
