"Inside of Me" is a song off Madonna's sixth studio album Bedtime Stories.

Background

Inside Of Me contains samples of 'Back and Forth', performed by Aaliyah; 'Outstanding', performed by The Gap Band; and 'Trials Of Life', performed by The Guttersnypes

Madonna and Shep Pettibone originally wrote a song called 'I Will Always Have You', but Madonna abandoned the project and reworked the demo with Dave Hall and Nellee Hooper. Pettibone isn't credited in the album booklet.

Composition

The song starts with guitars, sustained strings, "throbbing" bass and jazz-y keyboards, with Madonna singing in a breathy vocal register.

Lyrics

I can't stop thinking of you
The things we used to do
The secrets we once shared
I'll always find them there
In my memories

But this heartache isn't going anywhere
In the public eye I act like I don't care
When there's no one watching me
I'm crying

I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me

I keep a picture of you
Next to my bed at night
And when I wake up scared
I know I'll find you there
Watching over me

When my world seems to crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring me down
I just think of your smiling face and
I'm flying

I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me

You'll always be
Inside of my heart
Inside of me

When my world seems to crumble all around
And foolish people try to bring me down
I just think of your smiling face and
I'm flying

I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Inside of me

I will always have you
Inside of me
Even though you're gone
Love still carries on
Love
Still carries on

I will always feel you
You'll always be
Inside of my heart
I'll always have you
Inside of me
I will always have you
