Madonna's "Like A Prayer" - Hidden Meaning

Madonna Like a prayer meaning interpretation lyricsOk, now I've always wondered what this song is about! Is it about "some girl's" love of God and praying and christianity etc! Or is it about anti-racism and stuff like! Some say that its simply and painfully obviously about her excitement at giving some huge brother a plain old BJ (if not more, that is!)! I don't know.

So, below I tried to demystify a bit - (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKMHtcZ7dAQ)

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone. I hear you call my name and it feels like Home.

It seems to mean - "I'm a bit unsure about my life and really really lonely and ready for a bo-ty call" - but I wouldn't know the true meaning really!

When you call my name, it's like a little Prayer. I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there.

She is "down on her knees" aching to "take him there" and he's calling her name! In what situation would you picture a girl on her knees in front of a guy who is calling her name? They certainly aren't playing chess that way! Not sure whats up!Madonna Like a prayer meaning interpretation lyrics

In the midnight hour, I can feel your Power. Just like a prayer, you know I'll take you there

Unless they are happily arm-wrestling in the middle of the night I don't know how she would feel his "power"! And she is still totally aching to "take him there" and she so far hasn't indicated that she is carrying him on her back to library so "taking him there" must mean something else here!

I hear your voice, it's like an angel sighing. I have no choice,

Whatever they were doing has become intense as the guy has also started to "sigh" and stuff and she "has no choice"! It seems she is even more compelled to continue with whatever she is doing on her knees after listening to his sighing. She is quite dedicated at it for sure, whatever it is.

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.

Madonna Like a prayer meaning interpretation lyricsOk, now it gets complicated! She feels like flying and falling etc, it seems that she is no longer on her knees (can't fall or fly that way). In all probability, she finished whatever she was doing while on her knees and he told her to lie down. But its not like she is just going to sleep or something, with "heaven help me", something is still up!

Like a child, you whisper softly to me. You're In control just like a child, now I'm dancing.

Ok, now even more confusing! Last we heard, she was lying on her back but she is dancing too and he's in control! Let me rephrase - "They are doing something that requires her to lie on her back and "dance" with the guy in question and the guy has recklessly taken control of the activity they are doing together". How interesting! Well, must be some new form of dance that I haven't heard about.

It's like a dream, no end and no beginning. You're here with me, it's like a dream.

So, she is is so excited that she's even oblivious to the sense of time and reality! Now when I think of it, it could be related to relativitistic physics too given the references to time dilation etc, probably the song is indeed about quantum physics or something.

Any way, so far we have gathered the following data -
1) She is lonely and some guy calls her

2) She meets with him and gets down on her knees and tries to "take him somewhere"


3) Then he starts sighing etc and they both get excited doing whatever it is they are doing.


4) Then she lies down and they do some sort of "dance" together!
5) Then she thinks about space-time continuity and quantum physics.

Not really sure whats going on here, if you have any suggestions, please share!

Greetings, reader!

Greetings reader!

I started this blog just to blog about some fun stuff like music, songs, lyrics, movies, books and all the good stuff that's meant to be a unjustifiable monetary waste for both you and me! I mean, honestly now, my blog is never gonna get so popular as to generate even a penny so considering "time is money", any amount of time spent on it is a blatant waste of money! As for you, you won't be reading my new insights in Unified Theory of Quantum mechanics here any time soon, so its a waste of your time/money as well (yeah time=space=money, thats my financial theory of relativity).

But, you ARE here and you've reached this point of this post!! That means you've more money than you what can handle (or should). So I'd advise you to just transfer some of that to my account if you don't mind! I mean, since you are out to waste your money anyway, why not make it much more quick by doing it in a direct way! You will probably have much more satisfaction with the realization that you just wasted your time (and money) so much more efficiently!

Anyhow, laterzzzzzzzzz
