can't help being a woman - the lyrics


Jun 28, 2010
sun rises and a heart beats with the hope
of a brand new day
in and out of love i often lose my way

but the words I repeat to myself give me subtle peace
reminding me what i feel is nothing new,
i can't help being a woman
and i couldn't help myself from loving you

because you are detached, i remain attached
the chase, the dance, the longing
perpetually distracts
the memories i created and the script i wrote
of a love affair that was nothing but smoke

you changed my path and down a road i danced
thinking that love might have a second chance
but it was clear I was just inviting pain
in yet another one sided romance

so the words I repeat to myself give me subtle peace
reminding me what i feel is nothing new,
i can't help being a woman
and i couldn't help myself from loving you

and days from now in the darkness of a crowded dance floor
another boy will walk through the door,
and through the hazy daze of champagne I'll see
him looking into my eyes watching my body move
thinking those kind of thoughts about me
he'll take my hand pull me tight resting his upon my hips
hovering close he'll try to kiss my lips

and no it won't be love anew,
for a moment it may distract me
just enough from the memory of you
so for a song or two i will move in beat with him
before i repeat my own mantra again

what i feel is nothing new,
i can't help being a woman
and i couldn't help myself from loving you
