Shes getting older
Yeah, shes getting wise
But a change has changed the girl
Gone is the sparkle from her eyes

She wants to be a good mother
So shell do the best she can
But what about the other
What about the man

Well its cold to leave a woman
With family on her own
Its chill factor
To the bone

Resignation in her sighs
Is a sorry indication
Of how time
Can brutalize

Take away the hope
And the way I will follow
Take away the faith
Goodbye tomorrow

Its cold to leave a woman
With family on her own
Its chill factor
To the bone

She had her dreams too
But how can she pursue
Her ambitions
Be they great or small

You took her wings and flew
But remember when youre through
Your rise was due
To somebody elses fall

When the hard parts over
And the kids are almost grown
Youll be their big hero
Whenever you make it home

Shower them with presents
Things she could never buy
Delight them with your stories
About the great big, great big world outside
But dig

Its cold to leave a woman
With family on her own
Its chill factor
Chill factor, chill factor
To the bone
