When you love a woman - Lyrics


In my life I see where I've been I said that I'd never fall again Within myself I was wrong My searchin' ain't over, over I know that (When you love a woman) You see your world inside her eyes (When you love a woman) You know she's standin' by your side (A joy that lasts forever) There's a band of gold that shines waiting somewhere, oh, yeah If I can't believe that someone is true To fall in love is so hard to do I hope and pray tonight Somewhere you're thinkin' of me girl Yes, I know, I know that (When you love a woman) You see your world inside her eyes (When you love a woman) You know she's standin' by your side (A joy that lasts forever) There's a band of gold that shines waiting somewhere, oh, yeah It's enough to make you cry When you see her walkin' by And you look into her eyes Whoa-oh-oh-oh Whoa-oh-oh-oh (When you love a woman) You see your world inside her eyes (When you love a woman) Oh, you know she's standin' by your side (A joy that lasts forever) There's a band of gold that shines waiting somewhere, whoa-oh, oh (When you love a woman) When you love, love, love, love (When you love a woman) You see your world inside her eyes
