It Took a Woman ft. Rissi Palmer
Written by Tommy Atkins

All I’ve ever known of you are pictures on the wall
Videos he shows me now and then on his phone
Your handwriting inside the Bible on his nightstand
And your perfume in a chest where he keeps your wedding band

I know we never met, but, ma’am, I would have loved you
So, I hope that I measure up
And tonight when I pray, I hope you’re listening
‘Cos there’s something that I need to say…

Thank you for raising the man of my dreams
Thank you for showing him love
How to respect me and hold someone close
I know it took a woman to raise the man of my dreams

He’s got wisdom in his dark eyes that match yours on the wall
That crazy sense of humour that was in those videos
And when he leaves me notes in the morning on the nightstand
There’s an aching in my chest, a hope to wear that wedding band…

‘Cos I know that he’ll make a fine father someday
‘Cos don’t he know how it’s done
Your love lives on through him every single day
So there’s so much for him to give away…

Thank you for raising the man of my dreams
Thank you for showing him love
How to respect me and hold someone close
I know it took a woman to raise the man of my dreams

Thank you for raising the man of my dreams
Thank you for showing him love
How to respect me and hold someone close
I know it took a woman to raise the man of my dreams
