woman you took my life lyrics – tom jones

“woman you took my life”

woman you were good to me
in every single thing for me that you could do
when i could see no point in going on
left myself of knowing that another day i’ll see you

in my need i reach for you
a steady hand to lead me through a darkest day
you took me running chasing after better things
the laughter of another day
imagine how i felt when i have found
you had gone away

woman you took my hopes, you took my dreams
woman you took my love, you took my sleep
you left me nothing else to do
but turn around and start anew
woman when you walk out
you took my life away with you

through haste of fantasies, fears of uncertinties
you came to me, a reason to be going on
a hope when hope and minute gone
a world in me it had to be
imagine i how i felt when i have found
you had gone away

woman you took my hopes, you took my dreams
woman you took my love, you took my sleep
you left me nothing else to do
but turn around and start anew
woman when you walk out
you took my life away with you…. [x2]
