  • Your heart is not open so I must go
    The spell has been broken, I loved you so
    Freedom comes when you learn to let go
    Creation comes when you learn to say no

    You were my lesson I had to learn
    I was your fortress you had to burn
    Pain is a warning that something's wrong
    I pray to God that it won't be long
    Do ya wanna go higher?

    There's nothing left to try
    There's no place left to hide
    There's no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye

    Your heart is not open so I must go
    The spell has been broken, I loved you so
    You were my lesson I had to learn
    I was your fortress

    There's nothing left to lose
    There's no more heart to bruise
    There's no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye

    Learn to say good-bye
    I yearn to say good-bye

    There's nothing left to try
    There's no more places to hide
    There's no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye

    There's nothing left to lose
    There's no more heart to bruise
    There's no greater power
    Than the power of good-bye Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Nancy from Cleveland, OhOne of Madonna's best songs. I also believe this song is about Sean Penn about finally being able to let him go and move on.
  • Edward from Miami Beach, FlThis is the most beautiful look for Madonna! The beat and duration of the music reminds me of what it was like to be in Miami when she had a home here- very quiet nights at the beach and with the beat you easily fell into a beach somber mood.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnGorgeous ballad. Ray of Light is her best album and this song has the best music, loops but with acoustic guitars.
  • Linc from Beaumont, TxI really like this song and this album. It's very powerful, and relaxing and it's a wonderful concept album in a time when no one would probably notice or care.
  • Andrew from West Covina, CaI really really love this song. My grandpa had past away and a member of my family had developed this CD with old family pictures filled with memories including my aunt and grandma who also past away. So when I listen to this song, it reminds me of my grandpa because he used to play a guitar also and my aunt resembles a beauty queen madonna, but prettier...So in Life there is no greater power than the power of good-bye...I really miss them!
