Nell’album intitolato “Metamorphosis”

Metamorphosis
There’s a soldier here today
but you don’t bear steel in any way, oh no
she’s like a bow
seeking a wooden arrow
pointing the way to love

We all know how we can hate
just as strong as we could ever love, oh no
we can love, we can love
God bless you, God
for sending man a woman
pointing the way to love

We gotta love a woman
we gotta love a woman
love a woman, we gotta…

There’s a statue in the square
but the things they’re hiding it ain’t fair
it ain’t fair, Lord
the things they’re hiding

Cause beneath the stone
the greatest man is all alone
without a woman to love
without a woman to shove
without a woman to point the way to love

We gotta love a woman
we gotta love a woman
love a woman, we gotta…

There’s a picture on the wall
but he don’t seem happy there at all, oh no
he’s so alone
he’s got no woman’s shadow
pointing the way to love

We gotta love a woman
we gotta love a woman
love a woman, we gotta…
