Not to be confused with the Confessions on a Dance Floor song

"Forbidden Love" is a song off Madonna's sixth studio album Bedtime Stories.

Background

This song was considered as fifth and final single for the Bedtime Stories album. Rumour has it that there was even a complete video made for it. For some reason however, Warner Bros Records changed their mind, probably to give priority to the ballads collection Something to Remember (which ironically features Forbidden Love).

Composition

Composed in a minor key with whispering voices in the background (one of them being of Babyface's), the song features a string section in the middle eight. The instrumentation is kept at minimum to emphasize the vocals, and the song ends with fading out.

Lyrics

(Love without guilt, love without doubt) (3x)
(Rejection, love without doubt)

(Love without guilt, love without doubt) (3x)
(Rejection, love without doubt)

spoken twice in background during first and second verses:
(Don't go near the fire, don't go in the dark)
(Don't give in to your desire)
('cause he's gonna break your heart)
(Let go, let go)

I don't, don't care if it's not right
To have your arms around me
I want to feel what it's like
Take all of you inside of me

In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)

I know that you're no good for me
That's why I feel I must confess
What's wrong is why it feels so right
I want to feel your sweet caress

In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)

If I only had one wish
Love would always feel like this
Wishin' on the stars above
Forbidden love
If I only had one dream
This would be more than it seems
Forbidden love (Forbidden love)

(Love without guilt, love without doubt) (2x)
Rejection (Love without doubt)
Is the greatest aphrodisiac

In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)

In your eyes (In your eyes)
Forbidden love
In your smile (In your smile)
Forbidden love
In your kiss (In your kiss)
Forbidden love
If I had one wish
Love would feel like this (Love would feel like this)

(Love without guilt, love without doubt)
Love should always feel like this
Heaven forgive me
Never forbid me
Love should always feel like this
