Marsha Cook / Georgia Middleman / Darden Smith

The me I used to be
Has gone away for good
The ties that used to bind are broken
My children are gone
My husband is gone
Sometimes I think my mind is going too
But I’m still hoping

The woman in me
Could be the woman you need
Can you see
The woman in me

I’ve seen the darkest parts of life
Oh the stories I could tell
If you would only take time to listen
What you’re going through
Sister, I’ve been there too
I know how it feels to be alone

The woman in me
Could be the woman you need
Can you see
The woman in me

I was a military spouse
I had to run the house
I was a nurse, a teacher
A mother, a father too
And I still have more to do

Please look and see
The woman in me
