"Love Tried to Welcome Me" is a song off Madonna's sixth studio album Bedtime Stories.

Background

The song was inspired by a stripper Madonna met in a club, and fetishizes rejection.

Composition

The first 42 seconds consist of a string section, following which the verses start. The song projects a sombre and melancholy mood with Madonna lyrically asserting that she is "drawn to sadness" and "loneliness has never been a stranger" on the song.

Lyrics

These are my hands
But what can they give me
These are my eyes
But they cannot see
These are my arms
But they don't know tenderness
And I must confess
That I am usually drawn to sadness
And loneliness has never been a stranger
To me but

Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in

These are my lips
But they whisper sorrow
This is my voice
But it's telling lies
I know how to laugh
But I don't know happiness
And I must confess
Instead of spring it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still

Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
I was covered with dust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me

And I must confess
Instead of spring it's always winter
And my heart has always been
A lonely hunter but still

Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
I was guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in

Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Covered with dust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me (love tried to welcome me)
But my soul drew back (guilty of lust and sin)
Covered with dust, covered with sorrow (love tried to take me in)
Covered
Still
Love tried to welcome me
But my soul drew back
Guilty of lust and sin
Love tried to take me in
Love tried to break me (love tried to welcome me)
Love tried to welcome me (but my soul drew back)
But my soul drew back (guilty of lust and sin)
Covered with sorrow (love tried to take me in)
Love tried to welcome me
