    Over the river sea… Love is in the air…Soft whispers of love play...in the heavens
    Binding two into one…sharing the same song…And dancing in the wind….our dreams
    Reaching deep within to catch my lucky wind...wrapped me in your soul despite my faults…
    despite yours I took your hand…No matter the reason


    Must be nice to have that Some One Special
    On your side….your side…look
    In the air love's flow

    Understanding…

    I am only one woman
    Solid as the road ahead
    A strong Black Wo-man
    Your rib…
    Gentle as a rose
    Dancing in the softness
    Of the winds
    But…baby I am
    Fierce as a lion
    Protecting her own
    And on your side willing to fight

    Appreciative….

    I learned from you to
    Watch
    Listen
    Think…and
    Be aware….
    And there you will see the logic
    However, you closed your eyes and stop trusting
    What
    We have
    Built….

    But understanding…
    The troubles you have been through
    Still understanding….
    But, baby I have feelings too
    Don’t I get a say in all this madness

    Some say naïve But they don’t know

    Understanding…

    I am only one woman
    Loving with her heart
    Loving with her soul
    Holding your back
    When your
    Weak….
    When you can’t see
    For the waves being made

    Understanding…..

    I am here…
    By your side…
    ....your side

    As it seems..."I'm every woman, it's all in me"...is what we are, it surely holds true...
    we're your...
    Back ...when you break yours
    Strength ...when you have no more
    Umbrella ...when the storms of life pour on ya

    I felt this piece, cause I "been there, done that"
    never the less, it's awesome.
