takes a woman to know lyrics – lisa stansfield

guess you think that you’re cool
guess you think that you’re smart
guess you think you can tie up my heart
with a ribbon and pull it apart
you don’t wanna get down
you don’t wanna go deep
well i told you i love you
but baby, i figured that you were asleep

if you were a man
you’d walk out that door
tell me love is a crazy game
we’ve played it before
if you were a man
you’d get up and go
cos you know what it takes
takes a woman to know

did you think that i’d wait
with my arms open wide?
when i sow that it’s over
i saw it was written
right there in your eyes
you don’t wanna get down
you don’t wanna go deep
well i told you i love you
but baby, i figured thud you were asleep

if you were a man
you’d walk out that door
tell me love is a crazy game
we’ve played it before
if you were a man
you’d get up and go
cos you know what it takes
takes a woman to know
takes a woman
takes a woman
takes a woman to know
takes a woman
takes a woman
takes a woman to know

well i wanted you forever babe
but that ain’t your style
so next time i’m kissin you
i’ll be kissing you goodbye, yeah

if you were a man
you’d walk out that door
tell me love is a crazy game
we’ve played it before
if you were a man
you’d get up and go
cos you know what it takes
takes a woman to know
takes a woman to know
takes a woman to know
