(Rob Crosby/Kitty Murrah/Roger Murrah/Phillip White)

It takes a dreamer
To get this far from my hometown
A real believer
To look up when things are down
It takes a fool to let a good life fall apart
But, when a man knows something's missing in his heart
It takes a woman

It takes forever
To get beyond the bitter years
And if I ever
If I ever get that far from here
I can look back, and say that I survived
But for a man to really make it in this life
It takes a woman

You can gain the world or lose your soul
But if you don't have someone to hold
You can't feel the victory for defeat
Climb higher than you've ever gone
When you reach the top, you're still alone
Flying high don't make a man complete
It takes a woman
It takes a woman

(Instrumental Break)

You can gain the world or lose your soul
But if you don't have someone to hold
You can't feel the victory for defeat
Climb higher than you've ever gone
When you reach the top, you're still alone
Flying high don't make a man complete
Any fool can let a good life fall apart
But foolish pride can't fill an empty heart
It takes a woman
It takes a woman
It takes a woman
