Looking out on the morning rain
I used to feel so uninspired
And when I knew I had to face another day
Lord, it made me feel so tired
Before the day I met you, life was so unkind
But you're the key to my peace of mind

'Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman (woman)

When my soul was in the lost and found
You came along to claim it
I didn't know just what was wrong with me
'Til your kiss helped me name it
Now I'm no longer doubtful, of what I'm living for
And if I make you happy I don't need to do more

'Cause you make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman (woman)

Oh, baby, what you've done to me (what you've done to me)
You make me feel so good inside (good inside)
And I just want to be (want to be)
Close to you, you make me feel so alive

You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman (woman)

You make me feel
You make me feel
You make me feel like a natural woman (woman)

You make me feel
You make me feel

    I think this song is pretty straightforward. Its about finding the one, that makes it feel all worth it, that makes you feel whole, that changes everything. But the line that everyone knows "You make me feel, like a natural woman" is amazing in its simplicity and honesty. Because if someone has ever made you feel that way..that is the perfect way to describe it. Going through life there will be people that make you feel dumb, nerdy, prissy, manly, and just plain inadequate..and then all of a sudden someone comes along and you don't feel any of those things. You feel like you're just right. That you don't need to try, that you are a complete natural at BEING a woman. And its wonderful :)

    Wow, when I hear this song, I imagine that she sings about a very handsome sweet romantic man. That's why I love it.

    Powerful voice. She could make any song sound good. Lyrics suit her aswell though.

    When I heard this song I thought to myself, "how wonderful would it be if all men did not mind a hairy vaj"

    The line "it made me feel so tired" had double meaning to me. One, she was either tired of shaving or two she was tired of not getting laid because of her lack of personal hygiene.

    A Natural Woman will be held close to my heart as a personal reminder to keep it clean down below because there are only a handful of men who appreciate a natural woman.

    I feel the term, "Natural Woman," refers to a response a woman has to a certain sorry if man: he's honest, worthy of her trust, there's effective communication, she's very physically attracted, she feels her subtext is understood by him (and she tries to understand his), and he takes her to a nascent place sexually (in actual practice, or as a result of the aggregate) which has so much impact on her head, heart, and body, she calls the feeling, "a natural women," feeling what one ideally would from the correct partner. A little overwhelming, rather intense and passionate, but all wonderfully so.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
