WOMAN

She can raise you up to such giddy heights
She can dash your hopes, with just words or slights
She can keep you awake, with long sleepless nights
That's what the power of a woman can do.


She can be so nice, she can make your day
She can make you laugh, with her fun and play
She can be your strength when you're down and gray
That's what the power of a woman can do.


She can be there for you if she so decides,
She can break your heart, with deceit and lies
She can make you believe when you look in her eyes
That's what the power of a woman can do.


She can be your friend, she can be your lover
She can switch like that, one thing to another
She is the mystery, that you cannot discover
That's what the power of a woman can do.


So where do you stand as you go through all this
Do you know where you are, for ignorance is bliss
Do you let it go by, do you seal with a kiss
This is the power of a woman on you.


You can say it's not fair, that you don't stand a chance
You can woo her and love her, turn up for romance
You think you can win and you may, just by chance
But that's the power of woman, working on you.
