Madonna – Like a Prayer

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 10:22 pm by LynxLee


I was just looking at a TED video by Alison Jackson; “A surprising look at celebrities”. The interest to view this video was sparked as I find my cousin who visited us (my family) from Austria, seemed to have such desires to keep updated to celebrity news.. as do I.. Please do realize that the TED’s presentation video may include explicit pictures.

So from that video, there was a scene were this particular song was played in the background. I found the lyrics to be rather interesting. I mean, I never really noticed how the lyrics could relate to me this way. So I decided to express myself here with the video seemingly a little related to people I know and how the situations are. Please, do have a look at the video. Express how it could relate to you. I will explain my experiences below. I never knew how such an old video could have so much content in action, as well as the lyrics.

I’ve met a good friend of mine who pretty much would like to be a Christian. She sighs a lot and today is the first time I heard her voice (by phone). See how the lyrics are?

“When you call my name, it’s like a little prayer (or feels like home)” – I never really noticed this part of the lyrics until now.
The simple importance of calling a person by his/her name. How much it could differ.
Imagine God calling you, it really does feel like flying or falling.
The state of mind where you are motionless.
The state of Meditation.

“In the Midnight hour, I can feel your power.” – I think Midnight is mostly the time we feel empowered, as we are recharging.
For most Werewolves (if any exist), this is the time they experience their Metamorphosis.
Isn’t that how we feel sometimes? Midnight, we feel different.. something..

As for this music video… haha.. (it’s a long story)

Anyway, that’s just me. =P

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

I hear your voice, its like an angel sighing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes, oh God I think I’m falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

When you call my name its like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I’ll take you there

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Chorus:

When you call my name its like a little prayer
I’m down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know Ill take you there

I hear your voice, its like an angel sighing
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying
I close my eyes, oh God I think I’m falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

(chorus)

Like a child you whisper softly to me
You’re in control just like a child
Now I’m dancing
Its like a dream, no end and no beginning
You’re here with me, its like a dream
Let the choir sing

(chorus)

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

Just like a prayer, Ill take you there
Its like a dream to me

    i think you’re reading a little too much into it to be honest. Madonna always wrote and still does, controversial lyrics and this isnt any different. She likes to make ppl think and it certainly worked with you! :0)

    haha.. I agree, madmaz. I think a lot.. that’s why I have a blog. Anyway, these are my past thoughts. Not really how I feel now. Currently, I’m more free spirited. =)
