English, explained by Persian_Glamberts on Tue, 08/01/2013 - 19:49

The road to hell is paved with good intentions — The road to hell is paved with good intentions, but heaven is full of good works. Those who want, or desire to do good things have no answer to their last judgment when they knew right and wrong but failed to act. Those who did good things in life are rewarded for their efforts. This is a proverb warning us to contribute in life or there are consequences.

"The road to hell is paved with good intentions" in lyrics

And that it’s good, by the way that you move, ooh, hey hey

The road to hell is paved with good intentions, yeah

(Justin:)

Madonna - 4 Minutes

But I can't help myself from these temptations
When they come, there's nothing I can do
I promised I'd be good
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
So when I fall, I will fall to you
