You'll See



Lyrics

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

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

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, mmm mmm

Song

You'll See, the single In the fall of 1995, Madonna released You'll See, the lead-off single for Something To Remember. The song can be seen as a follow-up to Take A Bow (see video info). The single did pretty well in the charts, reaching #1 in Japan, #5 in Italy and UK and #6 in the US. It was certified Gold in the US and Japan. A Spanish version, called Veras, appeared on one of the maxi-singles.


Video

You'll See, the video Director Michael Haussman and Madonna decided to make the video a direct sequel to Take A Bow. In that video, Madonna was mistreated by her lover, the bullfighter Emilio Munoz. This time she walks out on him, leaving him behind in despair. She's seen on the train and later on a plane, while Emilio tries to catch up with her in vain.



Tour

Madonna surprised her fans when she performed You'll See on some of the US shows during the Drowned World Tour, instead of Gone, which was part of all the European shows and the other US shows. She might have looked vulnerable, being all alone in the spotlights in the front of the stage, but she proves to be very strong, like the lyrics suggest.
