the power of good-bye lyrics – madonna

your heart is not open so i must go
the spell has been broken, i loved you so
freedom comes when you learn to let go
creation comes when you learn to say no

you were my lesson i had to learn
i was your fortress you had to burn
pain is a warning that something’s wrong
i pray to god that it won’t be long
do ya wanna go higher?

[chorus:]

there’s nothing left to try
there’s no place left to hide
there’s no greater power
than the power of good-bye

your heart is not open so i must go
the spell has been broken, i loved you so
you were my lesson i had to learn
i was your fortress

[chorus2:]

there’s nothing left to lose
there’s no more heart to bruise
there’s no greater power
than the power of good-bye

learn to say good-bye
i yearn to say good-bye

[chorus, subst*tuting “no more places” for “no place left”]
[chorus2]
