Estelle – Thank You lyrics

Sometimes I wonder... Do you
Even recognize the woman
That's standing in front of you

Sometimes I wonder... Do you
Even care or realize why I took care of you
'Cuz you're my heart
You are my soul
You're my other half
Without you I can not be whole baby
So far apart
I just don't know
What drove us apart in the first place
Now I know why

These tears I cry... Sure won't be the last
They will not be the last... No
This pain inside... Never seems to pass
It never seems to pass... Me by

So I thank you
Said I thank you
Yes I thank you
For making me a woman

Sometimes I wonder... Could she be
More of a woman to you thank you were a man to me
Sometime I wonder... Why me
I'm here miserable while you're out living your fantasies
And didn't care

'Cuz you're my heart
You are my soul
You're my other half
Without you I can not be whole baby
So far apart
I just don't know
What drove us apart in the first place
Now I know baby why

These tears I cry... Sure won't be the last
They will not be the last... No
This pain inside... Never seems to pass
It never seems to pass... Me by

So I thank you
Said I thank you
Yes I thank you
For making me a woman

One thing I learned in life
We all gotta go through to survive
I hope she's happy
'Cuz you're the chapter that I'll be closing
Hope you're happy
'Cuz once my door closes it won't be open

These tears I cry... Sure won't be the last
They will not be the last... No
This pain inside... Never seems to pass
It never seems to pass... Me by

So I thank you
Said I thank you
Yes I thank you
For making me a woman

    After being married and taking care of a man for 30 years and 4 kids later, instead of the fury from hell from a scorned woman, "thank you" estelle, for showing we can take the high road and gracefully slam that door, never looking back, and never to reopen that door again! I hope you all are happy and I hope she can take care of you like you should've taken care of me. Not to say it isn't painful, but it can be handled with dignity. Thanks again estelle, for helping me understand my pain.

    The lyrics to this song is very deep. I think the main focus of the song is that she is informing her significant other that he has taught her something that he didn't mean to teach her. Thus, for that she is thanking him because it made her a woman. He thought he had a girl, someone weak and dumb. The hurt and pain of the relationship, caused her to become stronger and wiser, a woman. Something he never intended to do or happen. Now that she's strong, she's not just closing the door, she going bolt that bad boy shut so he can't get back in. She is fully aware that hurt may come again, but she knows she is capable of closing that door also. You go girl:-)

    Thank you for being in my life and taking me through what I went through with you but at the same time I love you and I know they'll be tears in the future. But this relationship has set the expectations for any future relationships, as far as how to handle them. Thank you for making me strong enough of a woman to be able to handle what's coming. I hope that your happy because even if you wanted me back my door is closed so I hope you and her are happy.

    The meaning I got from the song thank you, was a woman who fell in love with a man at a young age, and over the years he caused her a lot of hurt, pain and heartache. But from all of that hurt she flourished and grew into a beautiful intelligent woman. The woman that god intended for her to be (she finally knew her worth as a woman). She had enough of the lies and broken heart, her door was now closed to this man and she was finally moving on. But before she completely cut him off she wanted to say thank you and express to him that from all of his bs he helped her to become the strong independent woman she is today. Yeah it hurt but she because he was her everything, but she had to love him enough to let him go.
