RESCUE ME

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.
