Along Comes A Woman

Album: Chicago 17 (1984)
Charted: 14
  • There is a time when a man needs somebody to talk to
    Someone to talk to, somebody who'll always be there
    (All alone) nothin' seemed to matter
    (So alone) doesn't get much better
    (Can't explain) something that you're feeling
    For the very first time

    Then along comes a woman
    There's a change in the way
    That you're feeling tonight
    Then along comes a woman
    And you know that it's right

    There was a time when you needed somebody to count on
    You needed someone to count on, somebody to care
    (Now she's here) nothin' seems to matter
    (She's so near) everything is better
    (Can't explain) something that you're feeling
    For the very first time

    Then along comes a woman
    There's a change in the way
    That you're feeling tonight
    Then along comes a woman
    And you know that it's right
    (And you know that it's right)

    Then along comes a woman
    There's a change in the air
    That you're breathing tonight
    Then along comes a woman
    And you're holding her tight

    Then along comes a woman
    There's a change in the way
    That you're feeling tonight
    Then along comes a woman
    And you know that it's right
    (And you know that it's right)

    Then along comes a woman
    There's a change in the air
    That you're breathing tonight
    Then along comes a woman
    And you're holding her tight Writer/s: Mark Goldenberg, Peter P. Cetera

  • Seventhmist from 7th HeavenThis song had a "single version" and an "album version." I preferred the "single version," which gave much more emphasis to the percussion.
  • Algorithm from Zurich, SwitzerlandLet me (a computer program ) add that if Pandora's algorithms are any good this bass/ drum / vocal /sampling sound will match up very highly with many tunes from the 1990s or even today.
  • Algorithm from Zurich, SwitzerlandNot sure if I agree with that definition "destined for loneliness." I think it's more that anyone that has fortunate to appreciate and enjoy many women and the one night stand. It's always the greatest feeling when you meet someone NEW... romance is the word. The lyrics are so right f___ on "there's change in the air that your breathing tonight." Not sure everybody really knows what that feels like. And the conquest fewer still. Song was produced by a true master; David Foster. The horn section is so tight and new for its time. The bass is real and heavy. The drums although machine are right on. This may have been Chicago's last hit - they'll be playing this song in 2113.
