"Lady" as written by and Graeham George Goble....
Look around you, look up here
Take time to make time
Make time to be there
Look around, be a part
Feel for the winter
But don't have a cold heart

And I love you best
You're not like the rest
You're there when I need you
You're there when I need
I'm gonna need you

A long time ago
I had a lady to love
She made me think of things
I never thought of
Now she's gone and I'm on my own
A love song has come into my mind
A love song
It was there all the time

So lady
Let me take a look at you now
You're there on the dance floor
Making me want you somehow
Oh lady
I think it's only fair
I should say to you
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you
'Cause maybe I do

Look around, come to me
I have no answers
But know where I wanna be
I look around, play a part
I was born in the winter
And cooled by a warm heart

And I love you best
You're not like the rest
You're there when I need you
You're there when I need
I'm gonna need you

So lady
Let me take a look at you now
You're there on the dance floor
Making me want you somehow
Oh lady
I think it's only fair I should say to you
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you
'Cause maybe I do
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you
Lady I do

    My first impression is that he's talking about deadbeat dads. Make an effort to spend time with those who are important to you - in this case, the songwriter.

    General CommentThat wasn't supposed to be submitted so early...

    He used to have a lady, but she left. Is the lady being addressed that one or a new one? I guess she's the new one, but he could be fantasizing over the former as some other writers have done.

    If this is addressed to his former lady, isn't this lyric a bit rude? He addresses her as she dances, "Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you 'Cause maybe I do." Or does he address her - maybe he only considers it?

    If this isn't addressed to his former lady, what does the former have to do with the more recent? Why mention her?

    Not to mention the temperature idioms.

    General CommentThe melody sounds ok, but the meaning lacks. "I love you best"... oh wow isn't that special. So he whore dogs arround.

    I get tired of these kinds of people pushing their values. It's the preachy undertone that made this band suck.

    General CommentI think this is a song about someone who finds themselves single again, trying to win back an old love. He didn't know what he had back then, but he does now and he's hoping she will have an open mind and take him back.

    My Interpretationi think he broke up with girl, but when he sees her dancing he still wants her for the physical part of the relationship. He's kind of being a jerk saying "hey, I broke up with you, but i still want you.."

    General CommentI feel this song could be about a widow starting over after the loss of his wife.
