You'll See by Madonna - October 13, 1995







You think that I can't live without your love
You'll see,
You think I can't go on another day.
You think I have nothing
Without you by my side,
You'll see
Somehow, some way

You think that I can never laugh again
You'll see,
You think that you destroyed my faith in love.
You think after all you've done
I'll never find my way back home,
You'll see
Somehow, someday

Chorus:

All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive,
All on my own
I don't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see

You think that you are strong, but you are weak
You'll see,
It takes more strength to cry, admit defeat.
I have truth on my side,
You only have deceit
You'll see, somehow, someday

Chorus2:

All by myself
I don't need anyone at all
I know I'll survive
I know I'll stay alive,
I'll stand on my own
I won't need anyone this time
It will be mine
No one can take it from me
You'll see

You'll see, you'll see
You'll see, mmmm, mmmm

Interpretations:
This song refers pretty obviously to being in a relationship with someone with what's known as "Borderline Personality Disorder" or BPD. It summarizes, in a poppy way, the crazy push-and-pull, emotional inequity of such a relationship, the feeling of being emotionally "trapped" by someone who seems unwilling or unable to return reliable affection as yearned for. The lyrics more than hint at an undertone of mental illness: "Lose my mind", "Drive me crazy", "Borderline." Along with the mention of the feelings of being a "prisoner of love", love followed by emotional letdown, "playing with my heart", "pushing my love" and sudden emotional unavailability following being "held in your arms" - all the sentiments point towards a commentary on this disorder. Of course, it can also serve as metaphor for unsatisfactory sexual relations, but that is one step removed from the more immediate meaning, I think. Inge
