WOMAN

Words & Music by Tera Johnson

VERSE 1:

I am a woman

Who happens to be old

Some say that that makes me an old woman

But why define me in such a mold?

Does it even matter now anyway?


VERSE 2:

I am a mother

Who’s children are all grown

Some say that that makes me yearn for my youth

What if I like to be alone?

No one really knows me anyway

 

CHORUS:

I know who I am

It took a lifetime to understand

 

VERSE 3:

 I am a widow

Who’s lover left me and passed along

Some say another man could fill his space

But now I feel that that’s all wrong

Why you gotta say anything anyway?


BRIDGE:

And I like my skin all creased

It shows my life lived as I pleased

Growin’ older has brought me something

When I was younger I didn’t know a damn thing

 

CHORUS:

I know who I am

It took a lifetime to give a goddamn

 

VERSE 4:

I am a woman

Who happens to be old

Some say that that makes me an old woman

But why you have to be so cold?

Who the hell asked you anyway?
