I can do my best to tell you what it feels like in my skin
But you can't really know a man till you've gone where he's been
I could give you all the details, but you'd never understand
What it means to let that woman slip right through your hands

I guess you had to be there when she smiled
Had to feel the passion running wild
To really know the woman and the child
I guess you had to be there

Until she's stripped the layers off and seen into your soul
Till you've watched her make a diamond from a worthless piece of coal
Till you've held an angel and let her fly away
You won't ever understand no matter what I say
