Because You Are A Woman Lyrics

by Brett Dennen

I only wanted to be closer to you
I thought I had something to prove
Instead I fled with my superstition
Because you are a woman

Now I was a poet since before I could speak
A man's emotions are what make him weak
I come to you more or less a humble man
Because you are a woman

And I find most of the time
I'm lost inside my own mind
I look all over, all over to find
It don't keep me satisfied

All the conquest that I construe
Fail miserably in front of you
Have you ever been loved by such a charismatic fool
And I'm a circle for your love

The self sin and struggle crowd the sidewalk
Parading pose with phones and paper cups
You walk like truth to a world of fiction
Because you are a woman

And I find most of the time
It's all inside my mind
I look all over, all over to find
It don't keep me satisfied, yeah

And I find most of the time
I miss the way your body coils round mine
Slope of your shoulders, the curve of your spine
Because you are a woman

I change my strings and pack my suitcase
I'm always leaving for some other place
But I return to you again and again
Because you are a woman
Because you are a woman
