Voices

Album: Hard Candy (2008)
  • Who is the master? Who is the slave?

    Treat me like a curse
    And tell me I'm your savior
    I'll never know the stranger
    I used to know so well
    Waiting for your answer
    Is a kind of torture
    Could I grow accustomed to this kind of hell?

    Are you walking the dog, 'cause that dog isn't new
    Are you out of control, is that dog walking you
    Haven't you had enough, now your time is up
    Baby show me your hand

    Voices start to ring in your head
    Tell me what do they say
    Distant echoes from another time
    Start to creep in your brain
    So you're playing 'round, like it's on rewind
    You blew it so often that you start to believe it
    You have demons so nobody can blame you
    But who is the master and who is the slave?

    First you say you love me
    Then you wanna leave me
    Then you say you're sorry
    You play the game so well
    I bought your illusion
    You're the greatest salesman
    How could I refuse you
    When you sold it to yourself

    Are you walking the dog, 'cause that dog isn't new
    Are you out of control, is that dog walking you
    Haven't you had enough, now your time is up
    Baby show me your hand

    Voices start to ring in your head
    Tell me what do they say
    Distant echoes from another time
    Start to creep in your brain
    So you're playing 'round, like it's on rewind
    You blew it so often that you start to believe it
    You have demons so nobody can blame you
    But who is the master and who is the slave? Writer/s: . MADONNA, TIMOTHY MOSLEY, NATE HILLS, HANNON LANE, JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdAs church bells toll, brilliant ballad Voices has the absolute best ending to any Madonna record. Madge wrote a litle masterpice concerto art song with her friend Justin and the tune is a sharp reply to all the men who have done Maddy wrong in her life-I won't name name names because I know who they are! After all these years, Lady Ciccone is still the master of thoughtful and intelligent adult-oriented rock (AOR). Madonna knows how to dance, sing and cry and Voices is a beautiful and intellgent mixture of both her dance and ballad impulses because that's how her best music is-a brilliant combination of the two song types-all done with a Detroit rock & roll heart. Michigan's Evita Queen Lady has another winner on her hands. Once again,
    Madonna delivers
