Rebel Heart

"Messiah" is a song off Madonna's thirteenth studio album Rebel Heart. The song was featured on the deluxe version of the album.

Background

"Messiah" is a dramatic pop ballad with an orchestra backing and violins reminiscent of Madonna's 1986 single "Papa Don't Preach". Madonna employs a "deeper velvety" tone in her voice, with the lyrics talking about lighting candles and necromancy as well as casting spells of love. The title track finishes off the album and was changed completely from its leaked demo version. It consists of an acoustic guitar and violins, while the song itself is autobiographical.

Composition

The song is a dramatic pop ballad with an orchestra backing and violins. Madonna sings in a "deeper velvety" tone.

Lyrics

I am the promise
That you cannot keep
Reep what you sow
Find what you seek

I am the sorceress
Down in the deep
I am the earth
Under your feet

I am the moon with no light of my own
You are the sun guarding your throne






I heard the angels whisper to me
Look for the signs
He is the one

I'll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way
To your heart
I'll cast a spell that you can't undo
Till you wake up and you find that you love me too
Till you wake up and you find that you love me too

I'll be the bride that is married to life
You are the day, I am the night
Leave you a blanket of silver and gold
I'll keep you warm, do what I'm told
I need your strength, it will keep me from harm
I'll be your queen, save in your arms
Don't want to get to the end of my days
Saying I wasn't amazed

I'll light a candle here in the dark
Making my way
To your heart
I'll cast a spell that you can't undo
Till you wake up and you find that you love me too
Till you wake up and you find that you love me too
