    She never had a real courtship
    A special guy never took her to a dance
    No one ever sent her candy and flowers
    She never had the thrill of a true romance

    The warmth of a candlelight dinner for two
    This sweet and lovely woman never knew
    She never went parking on lover's lane
    She never knew all men were not the same

    She never giggled on the phone about boys at school
    Never charted who was fine, who was nice, who was cool
    She never dated one guy with another on the side
    At the age of 18 she thought she was in love
    Without a second thought she became someone's bride

    With two simple words she went from girl to wife
    So unsure of herself, so naive about life
    Knowing only one man, one way to make love
    She never understood what other women were whispering of

    Self-satisfaction, her husband's only need
    She's never known of her own desires
    Never knew how she wanted to be kissed and pleased
    Wondering how it would be with someone else
    Not knowing if it was even proper
    To touch herself

    Trapped by everything she struggles to understand
    Inside her soul is a woman forever torn
    Searching for the woman
    A woman not born

    BE
