  • Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
    Do my tears of mourning sink beneath the sun
    She's got herself a universe gone quickly
    For the call of thunder threatens everyone

    And I feel like I just got home
    And I feel
    And I feel like I just got home
    And I feel

    Faster than the speeding light she's flying
    Trying to remember where it all began
    She's got herself a little piece of heaven
    Waiting for the time when Earth shall be as one

    And I feel like I just got home
    And I feel
    And I feel like I just got home
    And I feel

    Quicker than a ray of light
    Quicker than a ray of light
    Quicker than a ray of light

    Zephyr in the sky at night I wonder
    Do my tears of mourning sink beneath the sun
    She's got herself a universe gone quickly
    For the call of thunder threatens everyone

    And I feel

    Quicker than a ray of light
    Then gone for
    Someone else will be there
    Through the endless years

    She's got herself a universe
    She's got herself a universe
    She's got herself a universe

    And I feel
    And I feel
    And I feel like I just got home
    And I feel

    Quicker than a ray of light she's flying
    Quicker than a ray of light I'm flying Writer/s: Dave Curtiss, Clive Maldoon, Christine Leach, Madonna Ciccone, William Orbit

  • Rabbit Bunny from Westminster MdRay of Light is a lovely, brilliant and beautiful song by Madonna! Happy with her audience and rock & roll, yet ultimately sad for her mother!
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnHer best video and her best dance song. The techno music is awesome.
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandThis is a pretty good veideo, but Madonna kind of puts her self in the video more than other people...
  • Bertrand from Paris, FranceWith her first completely new studio album in 4 years, Madonna brought electronica to the top of the pop charts. Working with collaborator William Orbit, the music sounded fresh, new, and invigorating.
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaThis just may be Madonna's most innovative song. The combination of techno pop music with philosophical lyrics had never been done before and was very risky. But it worked big time, again proving that Madonna is one of the smartest and most audience-savvy pop stars in history.
  • Madison from Norway, MeI was never really into Madonna but I think this is her best song... It's good for listening to while you're on the treadmill.
