YOU WERE THE WOMAN AND I WAS THE MAN
(sung with Margo Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies)
If you were the woman and I was the man
Would I send you yellow roses?
Would I dare to kiss your hand?
In the morning would I caress you
as the wind caresses the sand,
If you were the woman and I was the man?
If I was the heart and you were the head
Would you think me very foolish
if one day I decided to shed
these walls that surround me
just to see where these feelings led,
if I was the heart and you were the head?
If I was the woman and you were the man
Would I laugh if you came to me
with your heart in your hand
and said, "I offer you this freely
and will give you all that I can
because you are the woman
and I am the man?"
