SHEíS ALWAYS A WOMAN TO ME

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
And she hides like a child, but itís all that a woman can be

She can lead you to live, she can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth, but she'll never believe you
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
And she steals like a thief, but itís all that a woman can be

Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants, she's ahead of her time
Oh, she never gives out
And she never gives in, she just changes her mind

She'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding
And she'll bring out the best and the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself 'cause itís all that the woman can be

Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants, she's ahead of her time
Oh, she never gives out
And she never gives in, she just changes her mind

She is frequently kind and then suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool
But she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree
And the most she can do is throw shadows on you
But she's always the woman to me

All that a woman can be
