    See I am only a woman. Loves without doubt love you as you are.
    Never trying to change you. However, Brother I got needs too.
    Yearnings of a desire that sets me on fire, when it comes to you.

    Woman that I am
    Learning who I am
    Growing each day
    My strength is my love for me
    Not for you see I am
    Understanding my needs
    What I want in life
    Making my dreams come true


    But lately you are bringing me pain, making me cry.
    My dreams get further to reach. Don't hold me down.
    As I fight my demons and your doubts. Baby don’t you know
    I am down with you? I am only a womanone woman

    But yet,you bring
    The best out in me
    Your loves moves me
    Brings me alive
    And yet we are lost
    On this wave of love
    with a flame so high
    How can we go wrong?


    What you want from me? I give you my love, I bring my all
    But lately it seems its not enough. I believe in your dreams.
    What more do you want? I am only one woman…

    Do you believe in me?
    I believe in me…
    Believing in the
    Woman that I am
    Do you?

    I have feelings and dreams. My heart weeps to give that
    natural love What do you seek?
    Do you even know? I am only a woman
    And I have no regrets…

    Loving who I am
    My pride is mine
    I speak my mind
    And share my love
    Don’t try to change me
    Love me as I am…
    If I am not good enough for you
    Let me go...For I love myself

    Brother, you can't bring me down.

    Woman that I am
    Learning who I am
    Growing each day
    My strength is my love for me
    Understanding my needs
    Do you?

    For I am who I am
    Woman that I am
    With no REGRETS!!!
