Every Woman Is Every Woman

Every woman is every woman
To a player like me
Every woman is every woman
When they lay by me
Each kiss I miss, so much each touch, the love was shared, I showed I cared
You felt it too, but, I dealt with you.

Every woman is every woman
Every word spoken is a lie
Every woman is every woman
Each promise will be broken by and by
Each moment I cherish, I know, it will perish and I’ll hold you as you cry.

Every woman is every woman
Innocence is fleeting
Every woman is every woman
It’s a new danger that you’re meeting
With words of honey, you’ll think that it’s funny how,
You were happy alone before I helped you to moan
Encouraging laughter, but, nothing after:
No meal, no drink no reason to think there was anything wrong, then, before long, gone.

Every woman is every woman
To a loser like me
Every woman is every woman
To a user like me
Hiding my faults, secrets and lies
Twisting out of emotional ties
Always there, but never around
At family ‘do’s’ I can’t ever be found.

Every woman is every woman
To a bully like me
Every woman is every woman
You won’t, fully, like me
It isn’t the pain from some long lost love or ‘cos we fit like a hand in a glove
It isn’t my father who is to blame
It isn’t my mother, she’s exactly the same
My mind isn’t twisted, defective or dud.
I wasn’t dropped (as a tot), with a big heavy thud.
It isn’t fear of commitment, I don’t fear the unknown
There isn’t some childhood ‘issue’ I haven’t outgrown
It’s just when I’m with you, when us two are alone, the door is locked and I’ve turned off the phone…my pleasure is yours and yours alone.
