"When You Love A Woman" as written by Jonathan Cain, Neal Schon and Steve Perry....
In my life I see where I've been
I said that I'd never fall again
Within myself I was wrong
My searchin' ain't over and over
I know that

1-When you love a woman
You see your world inside her eyes
When you love a woman
(Well) You know she's standin' by your side
A joy that lasts forever
There's a band of gold that shines
Waiting somewhere, oh, yeah

If I can't believe that someone is true
To fall in love is so hard to do
I hope and pray tonight
Somewhere you're thinkin' of me girl
Yes I know, I know that
(repeat 1)

It's enough to make you cry
When you see her walkin' by
And you look into her eyes
(rpt 1)

When you love a woman
When you love, love, love, love
When you love a woman
You see your world inside her eyes

    General CommentI never thought Steve Perry and Journey would do anything together again, so I really like this song.

    General CommentThis is a very subdued song lyrically, but the music that accompanies the vocals make the lyrics have a weight they certainly would not had this just been a non-musical prose poem. The tonality of the singer's voice is so accurate.

    General CommentThis is a great song about a happy, healthy marriage between a man and a woman. The man is saying how great his wife is, how he can see his whole world inside his her eyes, and on her finger is a band of gold, her wedding band, that shines. There is simply no greater thing than a loving bond between a man and his wife, which is his soulmate. One of the best Journey songs EVER! Steve Perry's vocals are top-notch in this song.
