Are you like Madonna?

Madonna

Before we start listening to Like a Prayer, a famous song by Madonna, I want you to speculate on the meaning of “like” . Here it is used after the verbs to be and to feel to express similarity. For example, the voice is compared with an angel sighing, so the way the person speaks is similar to the way an angel sighs! Used with the verb to feel like has a more internal meaning expressing more of a personal perception. Compare:

 

 

It is like home. (the place resembles home)
It feels like home. (I’m as comfortable here as I’m at home)

 

The pattern “feel like” also has another meaning close to “want” . Compare:

It feels like swimming in the ocean. (I have a sensation as if I’m swimming in the ocean)
I feel like swimming in the ocean. (I want to have a swim in the ocean)

 

There’s an old joke that implies double meaning of feel like:

 

- I feel like a cup of tea.
- Really? You don’t look one!

 

Enjoy the song and complete the lines with the following words: a dream, flying, home, a muse, a child, an angel sighing, a little prayer.

 

Like a Prayer

Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like

 

[Chorus:]
When you call my name it's like
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

 

I hear your voice, it's like
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like
I close my eyes, Oh God I think I'm falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

 

[Chorus:]
When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

 

Like you whisper softly to me
You're in control just like a child
Now I'm dancing
It's like , no end and no beginning
You're here with me, it's like a dream
Let the choir sing

 

[Chorus:]
When you call my name it's like a little prayer
I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there
In the midnight hour I can feel your power
Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there

 

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there
Just like to me, you are a mystery
Just like a dream, you are not what you seem
Just like a prayer, no choice your voice can take me there

 

Just like a prayer, I'll take you there
It's like a dream to me
