"What Can You Lose" is a song from Madonna's second sound track album I'm Breathless for the movie Dick Tracy. It features Mandy Patinkin.

Composition

It is a torch song where Patinkin supplies the male voice while Madonna sings during the second verse with strings and harmonics.

Lyrics

What can you lose?
Only the blues
Why keep concealing everything you're feeling?
Say it to her, what can you lose?
Maybe it shows
She's had clues, which she chose to ignore
Maybe though she knows
And just wants to go on as before
As a friend, nothing more
So she closes the door

Well, if she does
Those are the dues
Once the words are spoken
Something may be broken
Still, you love her
What can you lose?

But what if she goes?
At least now, you have part of her
What if she had to choose?

Leave it alone
Hold it all in
Better a bone
Don't even begin
With so much to win
There's too much to lose
