Lyrics of Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman? by Bryan Adams


To really love a woman

To understand her

You gotta know her deep inside

Hear every thought

See every dream

And give her wings when she wants to fly

 

Then when you find yourself lyin' helpless in her arms

You know you really love a woman

 

When you love a woman you tell her that she's really wanted

When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one

'Cause she needs somebody to tell her that it's gonna last forever

So tell me have you ever really—really-really ever loved a woman?

 

To really love a woman

Let her hold you

'Til you know how she needs to be touched

You've gotta breathe her

Really taste her

'Til you can feel her in your blood

 

And when you can see your unborn children in her eyes

You know you really love a woman

 

When you love a woman you tell her that she's really wanted

When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one

'Cause she needs somebody to tell her that you'll always be together

So tell me have you ever really—really-really ever loved a woman?

 

You've got to give her some faith

Hold her tight

A little tenderness

You gotta treat her right

She will be there for you takin' good care of you

You really gotta love your woman

 

And when you find yourself lyin' helpless in her arms

You know you really love a woman

 

When you love a woman you tell her that she's really wanted

When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one

'Cause she needs somebody to tell her that it's gonna last forever

So tell me have you ever really—really-really ever loved a woman?

 

Just tell me have you ever really—really-really ever loved a woman?

Just tell me have you ever really—really-really ever loved a woman?
