She comes for me in silence
When the night is closing down,
And most have drawn the curtains
On their eyes.

She wears a lover's face
That has never seen a dawn;
It disappears in daylight,
And I know it's just disguise.

And she says:
I .... carry the sadness of a woman,
A sadness only women understand;
You .... you'll hear my footsteps
Louder when I'm gone,
Just like every other man.
Just like every other man.

Many nights I've waited only
To see her shying at the fences;
She measures her time
With me like salt.

Just enough to help the flavour
Of her times and of her tenses;
Not too much
That corrosion might take hold.

She says:
I .... carry the sadness of a woman,
A sadness only women understand;
You .... you'll hear my footsteps
Louder when I'm gone,
Just like every other man.
Just like every other man.

Can you trace your reflection in my eyes?
I can be fooled,
But not this time,
She sighs.

In this old blue dress
How can you adore me,
When you really should ignore
And let me go?

I say:
Take off that old blue dress,
And come for me in twilight;
And she smiles as if she just might,
And that's all I need to know.

I .... carry the sadness of a woman,
A sadness only women understand;
You .... you'll hear my footsteps
Louder when I'm gone,
Just like every other man.
Just like every other man.
Oh, just like every other man.
