Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

Album: Don Juan DeMarco Soundtrack (1995)
Charted: 4 1
  • To really love a woman
    To understand her - you gotta know her deep inside
    Hear every thought - see every dream
    Give her wings when she wants to fly
    Then when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms
    You know you really love a woman

    When you love a woman you tell her that she's really wanted
    When you love a woman you tell her that she's the one
    Cuz she needs somebody to tell her that it's gonna last forever
    So tell me have you ever really - really really ever loved a woman?

    To really love a woman
    Let her hold you - til you know how she needs to be touched
    You've gotta breathe her - really taste her
    Til you can feel her in your blood
    Then when you can see your unborn children in her eyes
    You know you really love a woman

    Chorus

    You got to give her some faith - hold her tight
    A little tenderness - gotta treat her right
    She will be there for you, taking good care of you
    You really gotta love your woman...

  • Rahul from Chennai, Indiahmmm.... i admire bryan's ability to record radio hits..... woow..... and this song... yeah its very simple but i don't think anybody else in the world wud have been able to record such a wonderful tune.....
  • Ivonne from México, MexicoThis song is one of the best.
    I like it so much!
  • Tony from Red Deer, AbExcellent guitar work, otherwise a generally weepy, sappy song.
  • Michaela from Brooklyn, NyYes!I agreee Hector!
  • Joanna from KielceHe plays it in "The House of fools", where he also play a part. Good film - I recommend it
  • Craig from Madison, WiOh good lord this is a bad song. I now know that when travelling overseas all I have to do to impress a woman is to say that I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really love them. Then they will be mine. Really this song could use about 250 more really's in it and then it would have the lyrical power.
  • Baki from Perth, AustraliaOMG what a song! Its gorgeous, its just simple - and it very effective!
  • Ana from Lokev, Europepure lyrics: a perfect sample how to write the simple truth in just few lines! bryan is very good at writing.
  • Oscar from Mexico, MexicoYeah, one of the most beautiful songs I´ve ever heard, even here in Mexico, we have a folk version with "mariachi", which was as successful as the original one.
  • Bunny from Oz, AustraliaOkay, how wrong could you be!! Honestly!! Bryan had a friend that was dying of breast cancer so he got the idea to raise money for the cause. She, Donna, is on the front cover - "Made in Canada". He then went on to do one in the uk for the Haven breast cancer charity called "Haven". He has just finished another one with Calvin Klein with US women. Hope this clears things up for u. Check out bryanadams.com it has the books there.
  • Pavitra from Cape Town, South AfricaTruly one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.
  • Hector from Duarte, OtherThis is one of the best compliments that one can ever say to a woman.
