Your Woman Lyrics

Artist: White Town

Just tell me what you've got to say to me
I've been waiting for so long to hear the truth
It comes as no surprise at all you see
So cut the crap and tell me that we're through

Now I know your heart, I know your mind
You don't even know you're bein' unkind
So much for all your highbrow Marxist ways
Just use me up and then you walk away
Boy, you can't play me that way

Well I guess what you say is true
I could never be the right kind of girl for you


I could never be your woman
I could never be your woman
I could never be your woman
I could never be your woman

When I saw my best friend yesterday
She said she never liked you from the start
Well me, I wish that I could claim the same
But you always knew you held my heart

And you're such a charming, handsome man
Now I think I finally understand
Is it in your genes? I don't know
But I'll soon find out, that's for sure
Why did you play me this way

Well I guess what you say is true
I could never be the right kind of girl for you


Well I guess what they say is true
I could never spend my life with a man like you

Hey guys, I don't understand, is he a gay guy, or singing as if he was a woman?
by Ian on 7/15/2008 12:09am
This song is about a crushed gay guy who is finally facing the fact that it won't work out with him and his straight boyfriend. How sad... ;(
by Charlie on 7/15/2008 1:36am
he received this as a letter from his ex, turned it into a song. Makes much more sense in that context.
by denisse on 7/19/2008 1:18am

by amo on 9/24/2008 6:58pm
Actually its about a few things, if you want a full explanation its on White Town's website. Its not a single message, unless it were "The hypocrisy that results when love and lust get mixed up with highbrow ideals"(as quoted from the site).

Hope that clears some stuff up for you all.
by sandra on 9/25/2008 1:40am
love it...

So was he really gay at the end?
by Paul on 10/16/2008 5:13pm
I love this song, I really do.

It's kinda sad when you realized that you can't have anything with the person you love.

That happened to me.

is this a gay song?
by Keni on 12/2/2008 11:18pm
I remember this song from when I was in high school. Ah, memories... it's different, but I like it.
by Choo (Singapore) on 12/7/2008 9:48am
The whole song was sang in the lesbian gf viewpoint,

EXCEPT "Well I guess what you say is true,I could never be the right kind of girl for you
I could never be your woman", which is the songwriter's words.

The writer is so smart..
by c0ma on 12/16/2008 9:46pm
this is the best
by Flordc (Argentina) on 1/3/2009 6:43pm
well, i guess that`s an incredible song, i really love it!

by Haley on 1/3/2009 7:04pm
Great song!!! I love the cool music!!! Its kinda depressing but its still really good!

Still excellent song ! :D
by Serendipity on 1/15/2009 4:50am
Reminds me of the first time i heard this song, i was six and totally hooked to the tune! I have ben trying to figure out the name of the song for years!
by WAYGIE on 1/19/2009 8:08am
it's awsome that a guy sings it
by Cirux on 1/26/2009 12:55pm
Excelente canción!!!!!!!!!
by Yasha(Azerbaijan) on 1/29/2009 2:22am
the best song i've ever heard
by splodey on 2/17/2009 6:40am
great song to get over a break up. <3
by Jolie on 2/18/2009 10:22am
To all of you that think a woman sings it and that it's a gay song--it's a MAN singing. It's called role-reversal.

Serendipity -- That's EXACTLY my situation too! I'm ecstatic that I actually found it!
by vongrim on 2/23/2009 4:38pm
Great song, I don't see it as a gay or lesbian song, even though it could be, I see it as a straight womans perspective of being messed around by a manwhore! the songs put it into right words about the end of that whole kind of mess.
by Rilli on 3/2/2009 2:37pm
Actually, I heard a talk show on the radio once about a man reading a break-up letter from his girlfriend. I suppose you can take it however you want, of course - that's the beauty of music - but that's what I was told.

It's always been once of my favorites, all the same.
by Joy on 3/25/2009 8:41pm
Seriously sweet song
by Courtney on 3/26/2009 1:08pm
Ughness sometimes this song is so perfect it makes me sick
by Paul on 4/14/2009 10:49am
the man's not gay... just listen to the song.. he's a former commie who's singing abt communism. In an interview he said that the song was also influenced by the fact that the first girl he ever fell in love with turned out to be lesbian!! The poor guy deserved a hit
by thanos on 4/15/2009 5:36am
it's nice! but isn't it for girls?
by VVV on 4/16/2009 12:56pm
Excellent! I love it!
by laurentiu on 4/30/2009 6:00pm

by andriavia1968 on 7/15/2009 9:10am

by CaliStaysHigh on 7/23/2009 2:08am
his first love turned out to be a lesbian. I can relate..alll badddd aha
by chewy on 8/31/2009 1:58am
Feelings are sexeless. so It doest matter your genre, say what you want to say: express yourself: I am not what You want. #$! You even thou I love you! Don't judge just live your life at it fullest. It's a shame I am not what you want, just let pick my pieces and continue...

This song rocks !
by CLS on 9/14/2009 10:35am
i don't give a shit if this dude is gay. this song is fuckin sweet
by cutie on 9/19/2009 1:12pm
not true at all for those that say it's a gay guy!!! its about a guy who falls i love with his female friend but turns out she's a lesbian and so he's just narrating the whole thing!!!
by Caro on 9/26/2009 12:04am
It's a great song, I first heard it like 10 or 12 years ago, and I loved it. I've been trying to find out the name of the song since then and today I finally did it!!! I'm so happy!
by charlotte jeffrey on 10/1/2009 5:02am
Yep I am trying to end a relationship and the sentiments in this song are spot on.
by Hater on 10/20/2009 12:09am
Good Song!! But FAGS GO TO HELL!! fyi
by Fucked your mom on 10/24/2009 4:54am
There is no hell, bud. Just a story to try to get unaccountable dipshits to behave. If you're always being watched, you don't get away with shit right? Why not embellish it for a few thousand years and make it a book?
by sheesh on 10/31/2009 7:52am
Guy couldn't find a female singer for his song so he sang it himself.

Nothing meaningful or political about it.
by Roximillions on 11/2/2009 3:29pm
I love this song, it describes one of my most hurtful relationships to a t! His voice RAWKS, and this song is NOT about fags!!!
by $genie on 11/16/2009 5:38am
heard it over a decade ago. Had to google part of the lyrics to get it. cant get enough of it. nothing gay about it. looking for the album to dispute the 'one hit wonder' status. i refuse to believe that such genius is only exhibited in one song.
by jupiterXL on 11/29/2009 4:03pm
Good song!! So is the singer homosexual or is he playing a real woman's role?
by Classic Song From A Classic Era on 1/8/2010 8:44pm
This is not about gay people, not necessarily a gay singer. This is a classic song from the early 1900's that was adapted to a modern 90's tune. Get with it peeps and quit sounding so stupid.
by Eric on 1/27/2010 10:30am
LOL, this is NOT about a gay guy who has a straight boyfriend.

He is singing the song from the girls point of view.
by RESTRICTED on 2/7/2010 7:01pm
this is great works! heard it the other day on the radio and been trying to figure out the name evr since!
by alice on 3/7/2010 9:01pm
I was in summer camp and my cabin mates and I made up a skit to this song I was 12 I'm 24 now and I still play it on repeat the album is good. We dressed as boys and by then end we looked liked girls don't know what we were thinkin but it was a hit at the talent show!
by DVS on 4/13/2010 2:05pm
Very nice song.
by On girl on 5/4/2010 2:16am
On yo girl
by Maono-san on 5/10/2010 4:20am
omg! I love this song! It is great!
by Anthony on 6/20/2010 10:03pm
It has nothing to do with lesbians. You are missing the part where the song says "boy you can't play me that way... I could never be your woman." It is from the woman's point of view. Then she says, "Is it in your genes? I don't know but I'll soon find out." I think it means he's been shitty to her so she's leaving him for his brother.
by Laura on 7/9/2010 8:13pm
If you like this song, listen to Tommy Trash's remix of it... INCREDIBLE!
by comingback4more on 7/10/2010 4:13pm
- I finally understood sb, who said, that they've looked for this song for years.

And this is the song which turns me on, even when i'm sad. No matter that my boyfriend is in England and he's far away - this song no matter if i'm not in the mood - just can't stop playing and playing again. That's awesome.
by Rebel on 8/15/2010 3:03am
Check, their video for this song, it is also perfect
by understood on 8/27/2010 5:24am
Did anyone catch what the song is saying about her being pregnant?? "is it in your genes? I don't know. But i'll soon find out. that's for sure" she is in love with a jerk that doesn't wanna be with her and she is pregnant with his kid.. so deep
by Lydia on 9/2/2010 6:59pm
I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of the best songs of all time!!! X3
by alex on 9/13/2010 8:19pm
i love this song
and I think that he is singing from a woman point of view
by alex on 9/13/2010 8:22pm
i love this song
and I think that he is singing from a woman point of view, it must be from a woman point of view just chek the video
by psyche on 10/9/2010 1:16am
I realized, this sums up all my relationships with all my exes. I suck.
by duh on 10/15/2010 12:14pm
It's from a woman's point of view:

Is it in your genes? I don't know
But I'll soon find out, that's for sure

She's gonna have his kid and he left her.
by TOSUN on 10/17/2010 2:34am
this song is absulutely wonderfll whatever its perspective it gives core idea of the relationships with its cute clip
by bugra on 10/19/2010 12:55pm

Well even if he is gay, everyone has Love issues!
Love Love Love this song! The music is haunting.
by luxotica on 2/24/2011 10:33pm

omg i love this song! i i heard it in 1997 and i found the name today
by Kikko on 3/31/2011 1:20pm
trippy it!
by natnat on 4/3/2011 11:57am
loved this song forever and i don't care either if a guy sings it. i'm a girl and i can still relate this to a guy who I was interested in. you don't have to be a certain gender or orientation to be toyed with and it all feels just as bad.
by RoyalSafari on 4/12/2011 7:12am
This has to be one of my favourite songs ever!
by carlos martinez on 5/19/2011 2:17pm
este tema es del 97 alsi cuando estab en la media me como a dos minitas escyuchando este tema han pasado como 12 años y las volvi a ver y estan hechas unas vacas jajajajja
by Jacob on 6/6/2011 11:37pm
Rock and roll!
by Playmayker on 6/23/2011 9:57pm
Great song!! I love it!
I always wondered about the guys singing it. I just read that he is straight and married. Hahaha playing us all! Rock on!!
by ms. derpette on 10/6/2011 12:46pm
gay, straight, a letter, a baby, who cares? the song is hot, even moreso because a man sings it. as a woman. droooool.
by Mr matanza on 1/5/2012 6:15pm
Solo puedo decir una cosa acerca de esta rola !!!!!!!!!!!Esta chidisssssimaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!
by pete on 2/5/2012 4:20am
Just heard this song I had almost forgot and it sounded as good as in 1997. First time I heard it when I was in the army and it was big music smash then.
by easy c lick on 4/14/2012 4:45am
We could just be ...bed friends? tension releasers? swimming pals?
Oh I'm cool, but I need at least to witness your moves!
Since 1900 and before
by Derek on 4/23/2012 6:20pm
To me the heat from this song comes from the idea that a man is hearing the woman's perspective, and realizing how badly he fucked up,and that it's too late to repair the damage.Whenever I play the song,I imagine the breakup taking place in a restaurant with the woman teary-eyed but strong and focused,and the man completely blind-sided(for the first time!).See that's the sign of a great song- a million different interpretations are possible.Gay,straight,male,female,doesn't matter-it's what YOU bring that matters.It's right up there with Courage(Tragically Hip),Creep(Radiohead) and other songs that find their greatness in the ambiguity of their lyrics.
by Marilyn on 5/20/2012 12:24pm
Oí esta pieza hace apenas 1 mes, la he buscado "like a freak" y hoy la encontré! Me encanta!!!
by Bill Cosby on 5/25/2012 8:27am
Does anyone else notice the sampling of the "Emperor's March" song from the Star Wars series? I heard this immediately!
by Cisneros on 7/24/2012 12:21am
This song is for you Robert Menchaca.

by Specter on 8/4/2012 6:43pm
Damm, I can't stop listening to this shit. Really... I find this song kinda rare because of the gay thingie, but the truth is that I love it anyway. It's my new favourite one.
by Xgene on 8/18/2012 11:51am
It made me mad I can't avoid this song extra ordinary fuck
by TheUnkown on 8/22/2012 5:46am
A gay who felt in love with a straight man . But he can't be his woman , because he doesn't wants to turn as transexual .
by Steve on 10/14/2012 1:02pm
A truly great song - mysterious, witty, mesmeric. A classic.
by TUNISIANO on 11/9/2012 7:56pm
" Well I guess what you say is true
I could never be the right kind of girl for you "

by Found it out on 11/19/2012 8:29am
When asked about the lyrics, this truly clever and subtle man said:

"Being a member of an orthodox Trotskyist / Marxist movement. Being a straight guy in love with a lesbian. Being a gay guy in love with a straight man. Being a straight girl in love with a lying, two-timing, fake-ass Marxist. The hypocrisy that results when love and lust get mixed up with highbrow ideals."

The truth is (fact-checked) that he was in love with a Trotskyst-Marxist lesbian female. And he still was, when giving this answer, a little bitter about it.

Great song though. Love it
by Chobo on 12/8/2012 1:49am
Maybe she wasn't a lesbian, maybe she just didn't want to go out with an overweight paki
by Chalo on 12/8/2012 1:50am
He should rewrite it 'I could never be your paki'
by Andrew on 2/4/2013 7:56pm
This song is based in a letter wrote by his ex girlfriend. So... the song is not gay at all.
by Bacillus on 4/30/2013 4:18pm
this song is so good! i was 13 when this song was a hit, and i remember myself clearly thinking "i'll be old but i will be still listening to this song happily" and here i am. old.
and you must listen to the full album, is great!
by Lizzy on 8/4/2013 11:16am
So happy when I found out the name of the song back to 97, just love it, the rythm and any perspective you see, gay, lesbian, straight it's a great song!!
by Romeo on 12/13/2013 8:58pm
Now I get meaning of this song. I was 13 when I saw the video on Mtv, but never figured out the lyrics.
I think the man on this history could have a psychopath personality but, as always happens on this cases, she finally left him after bear so much painful behaviours.
Such a great song!
by kay on 7/28/2014 9:13am
It isn't a gay song you idiots. There wasn't any readig comprehension at your schools, come on. It is about a GIRL who is in love and PREGNANT ( is it in your genes I don't know but I'll soon find out that's for sure) and she is no longer what he wanted, now she's a burden. Not the woman he wanted so she left him. Even the video gives you a clue. READ MORE.
