  • Life is a moment in space
    When the dream is gone
    It's a lonelier place
    I kiss the morning goodbye
    But down inside you know
    We never know why
    The road is narrow and long
    When eyes meet eyes
    And the feeling is strong
    I turn away from the wall
    I stumble and fall
    But I give you it all

    I am a woman in love
    And I do anything
    To get you into my world
    And hold you within
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again
    What do I do?

    With you eternally mine
    In love there is
    No measure of time
    We planned it all at the start
    That you and I
    Live in each other's hearts
    We may be oceans away
    You feel my love
    I hear what you say
    No truth is ever a lie
    I stumble and fall
    But I give you it all

    I am a woman in love
    And I do anything
    To get you into my world
    And hold you within
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again
    What do I do?

    I am a woman in love
    And I'm talking to you
    You know, I know, how it feels?
    What a woman can do
    It's a right
    I defend over and over again

    I am a woman in love
    And I do anything
    To get you into my world
    And hold you within
    It's a right I defend
    Over and over again Writer/s: Barry Alan Gibb, Robin Hugh Gibb

  • Harry from Sunnyvale, CaThis is one of my favorite songs by anyone, and I like many Streisand songs. This song is the reason why she was and still is so popular. But this particular one is so deeply heartfelt and I think the most emotional of any she's sung. It maybe was written by Andy Gibb, but it's Streisand's wonderfully mature and feminine vocalization that makes it gret
  • Paul from Detroit, MiJohn, get a grip. Are you some sort of freaked out, male feminist? This was a beautiful song, and so WHAT, if she was a "Woman In Love". Should a woman be ashamed of that?
  • Jennie from California, CaA great song. I love it.
  • John from Brisbane, United StatesBarbra must have been very embarrassed when this stupid song went to number one.Barbra does not wail about lost love.Barbra is a strong woman who knows what she wants.Hail ms Streisand the -
