Nothing Fails



Lyrics

I'm in love with you
You silly thing
Anyone can see
What is it with you
You silly thing
Just take it from me
It was not a chance meeting
Feel my heart beating
You're the one

You could take all this
Take it away
I'd still have it all
Cause I've climbed the tree of life
And that is why
I'm no longer scared if I fall
When I get lost in space
I can return to this place
Cause you're the one

Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails, you washed away my tears
Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails, nothing fails

I'm not religious
But I feel so moved
Makes me want to pray
Pray you'll always be here

I'm not religious
But I feel such love
Makes me want to pray
When I get lost in space
I can return to this place
Cause you're the one

I'm not religious
But I feel so moved
I'm not religious
Makes me wanna pray
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel so moved (But I feel so moved)
Makes me wanna pray
Pray you'll always be here
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel such love
Makes me wanna pray

I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
But I feel so moved (But it makes me wanna pray)
I'm not religious (I'm not religious)
Makes me wanna pray (Makes me wanna pray)
I'm not religious
But I feel so moved (Makes me wanna pray)
I'm not religious
Makes me wanna pray (Makes me wanna)

Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails, you washed away my tears
Nothing fails, no more fears
Nothing fails

Single

Nothing Fails, the singleThis beautiful ballad has easily become everyone's favorite album track. It was released in December 2003 on several formats. Some countries received a Nothing Fails single, while others got a Nothing Fails/Love Profusion single. The Nothing Fails maxi-single doesn't feature Love Profusion, but some bonus remixes of Nobody Knows Me. Nothing Fails didn't chart in the Billboard Hot 100, though it peaked at #1 of the Sales chart as well as on the Hot Dance / Club Play. Remixes of the song were made by Peter Rauhofer, Jason Nevins, Tracy Young and Jackie Christie.


Video

Early rumours suggested that Madonna was going to shoot a religious video for Nothing Fails in Israel. This was soon denied by her spokesperson. Months later, her manager Caresse Henry even announced that WBR had no intention to shoot a video to support this single. Instead they released a video for Love Profusion, which was released in conjunction with Nothing Fails.


Tour

Nothing Fails @ Re-Invention TourMadonna opened the fourth part of her Re-Invention show with an acoustic version of Nothing Fails. Dressed in a beautiful black suit and matching hat by Stella McCartney, she was seated on the left of the stage with her acoustic guitar. During her performance, the big screens - which had closed during Bedtime Story - opened again, uncovering the large background screen which displayed the choir.
