"Bedtime Story" is the third single off Madonna's sixth studio album Bedtime Stories.

Background

Forever reinventing herself, Madonna wanted to show a softer side of herself with the Bedtime Stories album in contrast to the more aggressive, sexual side. Musically, the title song is also a departure from the singer's usual Pop/R&B blend, and brings the Material Girl into the Electronic/Techno genre. Madonna pushed for this song to be the centerpiece of her album and it received favorable reviews, but it never made it into her touring setlist.

Composition

The song starts with its chords. It is considered an electronic song and a new direction for Madonna.

Lyrics

Today
Is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out
Lost their meaning
Don't function anymore

Let's
Let's
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious honey

Today is the last day
That I'm using words
They've gone out, lost their meaning
Don't function anymore

Traveling, leaving logic and reason
Traveling, to the arms of unconsciousness
Traveling, leaving logic and reason
Traveling, to the arms of unconsciousness

Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious

Words are useless
Especially sentences
They don't stand for anything
How could they explain how I feel

Traveling, traveling, I'm traveling
Traveling, traveling, leaving logic and reason
Traveling, traveling, I'm gonna relax
Traveling, traveling, in the arms of unconsciousness...

Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious
Let's get unconscious honey
Let's get unconscious

And inside
We're all still wet
Longing and yearning
How can I explain how I feel?

Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling
Traveling, traveling, in the arms of unconsciousness

And all that you ever learned
Try to forget
I'll never explain again
