WOMAN LIKE YOU
Melissa Etheridge


You went out looking for yourself
What did you think you'd find? Uh, huh
You thought that you would change the world
You just kept changing your mind, uh huh

You want a stairway to Heaven
But you won't take the journey one step at a time
Too long a climb, a climb

But a good-looking woman like you
Never had to wait for her dreams to come true
Once upon a time, it was all you had to do
Was be a good-looking woman like you

Wake through the door, you turn the heads
Let them think they stand a chance, uh huh
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Then you lead them to the dance, uh huh

You give a piece of your body
But still, you keep the darkness of a heart that's blind
It's weighing heavy on your mind

But a good-looking woman like you
Never had to wait for her dreams to come true
Once upon a time, it was all you had to do
Was be a good-looking woman like you, oh

Your book's been judged now, cover to cover
And time has made you one of the other
Every choice you made has been written on your face
And in-between the lines, you can find
The grace of a woman like you

Shouldn't have to wait for you dreams to come true
Once upon a time, it was all you had to do
Was be a good-looking woman like you
Oh, a good-looking woman like you
Shouldn't have to wait for you dreams to come true
Once upon a time, it was all you had to do
Was be a good-looking woman like you
