​If You Were The Woman And I Was The Man

This song is by Cowboy Junkies and appears on the album Black Eyed Man (1992) and on the live album 200 More Miles: Live Performances 1985-1994 (1995).

(Michael Timmins)

If you were the woman and I was the man
Would I send you yellow roses
Would I dare to kiss your hand?
In the morning would I caress you
As the wind caresses the sand,
If you were the woman and I was the man?

If I was the heart and you were the head
Would you think me very foolish
If one day I decided to shed
These walls that surround me
Just to see where these feelings led,
If I was the heart and you were the head?

If I was the woman and you were the man
Would I laugh if you came to me
With your heart in your hand
And said, 'I offer you this freely
And will give you all that I can
Because you are the woman
And I am the man?'
