Description
I don't know which genre to attach this to, I wanted to create a continental, European feeling whilst telling the story of an enigmatic woman -based on no-one in particular!

The Woman

A woman like her only ever wears black
It flatters her figure and tightens her walk
With dresses designed in some secret code
Deciphered by lovers in a game she adored
She dances to music only some of us hear
Her heart once beat to the fall of a tear
She learned to forgive you a lifetime ago
And learned to hold it and never let go, never let go, she never let go

She wore the look of a woman in love
Who wanted much more than all she could have
Though her smile was assured and her confidence high
Every man she met saw the fear in her eyes
Her lies were all dressed in the sound of her voice
You could take her for pleasure if she gave you the choice
She learned to deceive you a lifetime ago
And learned to hold it and never let go, never let go, she never let go

She dazzled her new friends with old repartee
Accustomed to men but never too free
I saw her once sleeping deep in your arms
But she saved all her dreams for some other man
She loved the scent he brought back from Rome
That she only wore knowing he’d come
She captured that moment a lifetime ago
And learned to hold it and never let go, never let go, she never let go

She slept in his bed and gave all that she could
She was a mystery, half understood
Guarded with strangers and open with friends
Never betrayed indiscretions she heard
She looked in the mirror and saw so much less
Than all of the women she longed to impress
She mastered that look a lifetime ago
And learned to hold it and never let go, never let go, she never let go

She was the woman, the one that we knew
If we took her for granted then we’d only lose
She never stayed long if the moment had gone
She followed her heart and her heart carried on
Looking for someone to love and admire
Someone to sleep with, to wake her desire
She dreamed that dream a lifetime ago
And learned to hold it and never let go, never let go, she never let go

thanks Feter
you're always so generous with your comments Feter - this isn't ready yet, there are some strange sounds on the track and I'm not sure about the female vocals at the end either. I just thought I'd put it up for comment and see if you good people on Macjams could make any suggestions before I do the final mix and edit. Thanks for listening, it's always a pleasure to hear from you
Check out my latest song called Isn't That The Way?

great sound
I love the old time acoustic feel to this. The female backing vocals coming later are a nice start to the instrumental play out. Genre-wise I'd put this with Peter Sarstedt's "Where do you go to my lovely" but the question then becomes where do you put that?
What ever the genre - I love this post!
Cheers
Steve

Excellent
Very fine. Glad I had the lyric, tho - the vocal starts out a little buried at the edge of each verse. Fav'd - Thanks, Tom.
