You Are the Woman

Album: Firefall (1976)
Charted: 9
  • You are the woman that I've always dreamed of
    I knew it from the start
    I saw your face and that's the last I've seen of my heart

    It's not so much the things you say to me
    It's not the things you do
    It's how I feel each time you're close to me
    That keeps me close to you, whoa, oh

    You are the woman that I've always dreamed of
    I knew it from the start
    I saw your face and that's the last I've seen of my heart

    It's not so much your pretty face I see
    It's not the clothes you wear
    It's more that special way you look at me
    That always keeps me there, whoa, oh

    You are the woman that I've always dreamed of
    I knew it from the start
    I saw your face and that's the last I've seen of my heart

    It's hard to tell you all the love I'm feelin'
    That's just not my style
    You got a way of send my senses rellin'
    Every time you smile, whoa

    You are the woman that I've always dreamed of
    I knew it from the start
    I saw your face and that's the last I've seen of my heart

    I saw your face and that's the last I've seen of my heart
    Of my heart, ooh, of my heart

  • Crowbie from Illinoisto Aiken Nutz: i just found out it's a sound made by rubbing a wet finger across the top of a conga. also known as a "moose call". there's a video on youtube. yep, that's the sound.
  • Aiken Nutz from Tahlequah OkEver since this song charted in 1976 I've wondered if there is someone murmuring or moaning in the background. On a new FM Oldies station in my area, they play the song quite often and I still hear a sound like a woman saying "mmmm" "mmm" behind the vocalist. Am I going insane? Can anyone else hear this sound?
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn August 15th 1976, "You Are The Woman" by Firefall entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart on position #82; and on October 17th, 1976 it peaked at #9 {for 2 weeks} and spent 22 weeks on the Top 100...
    It reached #6 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart...
    Between 1976 and 1981 the Boulder, Colorado quintet had ten Top 100 records; after "You Are The Woman" their next two biggest hits just missed making the Top 10, "Just Remember I Love You" and "Strange Way" both peaked at #11 on the Top 100.
  • Miles from Vancouver, CanadaI can't stand this song. Makes the Eagles sound like AC/DC. (Plus, I'm 27 and I've never had a significant other. Why?)
  • Earl from Coldwater, MiThis song came out the year I started dating the woman who eventualy became my wife. I had forgotten about it for many years, but it means more to me now after 35 years together with her. Nice song.
