Jeff Buckley - Just Like A Woman Lyrics




Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Ev'rybody knows
That Baby's got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
Buy she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary, she's my friend
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can't be blessed
Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that --

I just can't fit
Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
When we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world.
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
You make love just like a woman, yes, you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

    such a gift.

  4. YA *THINK

    <{}> Thank Youuu! Love Grace

  5. Claus Christoffersen

    Oh...…..what a masterpiece……of the ultra rare kind. And it is "just" a demo.. What a sublime artist Jeff Buckley was. I had the luck to attend his legendary 1995 Roskilde Festival concert - but was to young and "stupid" to understand how extraordinary an event it was back then.. As of 2019 I know for sure.. Wish I had better memories of that day. Still have Jeff´s music though - and that is what counts.. R.I.P. Jeff

  6. Alper Barış

    Melek gibi bir ses...

  7. ivan perez

    Did bon Dylan make songs for musicians to cover it better than he did them?

  8. Ophelia

    Jeff hated it at first but we had him do the same covers over and over and over and we didn't initially tell him why or or intent. lol he got so frustrated and then we told him why and he was so understanding and touched that he took it on as a great honor, mastering them in a way that surpassed everyone. I do love you Jeff.

  9. Ophelia

    Robert Dylan.

  10. Ophelia

    Sorry I missed your bday Luke. Jeff's is Nov 17th. I love you both. Always have.

  12. Dale Bentham

    So beautiful, one of the best covers I've heard

  13. snoozieboi

    I know his vibrato and guitarwork like it was my reflection in the mirror. I feel drunk on one beer. It's like coming home, but my love has left and taken all her things. All I'm left with is the memories and recordings. Today I've heard two recordings I've never heard before, and I think I have to save more for later.

  14. Enoch Richards

    I love you you my friend. R.i.p. I’ll never get over your death

  15. Enoch Richards

    R.i.p. you angelic soul

  16. Mariano Abundiz

    Are you KIDDING me right now...WOW...this is the best Bob Dylan cover of any kind. I say that knowing darn well that Jimi Hendrix covered "All Along The Watchtower".

  17. God: I Am ARMAGEDDON!!!

    You're just one of millions.... Lucky us :)

  19. Aria Firouzabadi

    You can never do a cover of Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen.

  20. Henry Vega

    One of the few who makes me fall in tears

  21. Blood Wizard

    jeff, seni seviyorum..

  22. Meghan Amoroso

    Every song Jeff ever did was the original version in my mind. It just wasn't done until he did it.

  23. DiggY Alex

    RIP Jeff

  24. Epilimneon

    I know only few songs from Bob Dylan, which are better interpreted by others than by himself, except this one!

  25. Heather Brown

    someone meddled with his profile pic.

  26. Heather Brown

    lost way too early.never suited for the commercial circuit.

  27. AnnerzInSpace

    When I heard this song by Bob Dylan I loved it but i always thought the lyrics need a really sad slow melody to it. I wanted to really feel those lyrics. Then I found Jeff's version and I couldn't believe it! He did exactly what I was searching for... for me the lyrics are so sad and in this version you really understand them and feel them deep in your heart. Thank you Jeff

    Utter pish ....... pretentious rubbish. Dylan should sue!

    Artisinal Spoilers

    Sue someone who has been dead for 22 years for a song that was covered? Get off your high horse you heroin infested cumdumpster.

  33. Novomnic

  34. Bobby Da

    Beautiful song!

  35. Sabina Abubekirova

    why the heck he is so awesome

  36. massimo zan

  37. Kikispecial

    Jeff sang to every tear I shed growing up, and his voice still haunts me as I reach the end.

  38. Toni Smith

    I read once Dylan wrote this about Janis J. Anyone else?? Damn good song.

  39. Toni Smith

    Perfect. God, what soul. RIP Jeff♡

  40. Ryuobbi

    After 18 hour long day , came home , took a shower and layed down on my bed. As soon as I have put my body to rest I felt this instant relief and Jeff does that same thing to my soul. Curled up , Jeff is played and thinking about her. His beautiful voice carries me around like a feather . Makes me feel worthy of sharing love and good .It's been painfull 4 years since I'm aware of her existence and my oh my I can't get her out my mind. There are special times only for Jeff , I can't handle him at certain points , something ethereal about him makes him divine .If he ... may his precious soul rest at peace ... lived for another 10 years , he would've gone down as at the greatest musician of all times without a doubt. Good night my friends and may you all find peace in what this angel shared with us.

  41. Saرah

    This is amazing!
    But it's rlly hard to understand the meaning behind all these words!
    A deep deep message.

    Toni Smith

    That's Mr. Dylan for you. I read once he wrote it about Janis Joplin. Sounds sensible.?? Who knows☺ damn good stuff, that's all I know💟❤💞💗

    Saرah

    @Toni Smith that's fucking awesome! ❤

    Toni Smith

    @Saرah Ain't it though?!☺Janis was nothin but cool, like a chicken ain't nothin but a bird! Lol.What's BD stand for?

    Saرah

    @Toni Smith hahah Bella And D is the first letter of my last name .. but bella is a nickname my real name is Sarah.. it's a long story why Bella 🤣💃🏻

  42. Jt Smith

    mike doughty once encountered JB and it was an awkward experience. he felt like Jeff was a mediocre songwriter. he was fortunate that the songs fell into place. i don't know what the fuck mike's opinion was but Jeff Buckley had more mojo + magic in his guitar ship than some dude from Soul Coughing. somehow, Jeff Buckley's star will continue to glimmer while those who tear his glory down will ruin in flames.

  43. Maria Christianson

    He had his own unique style and there's no one like him

  44. Matahari Orka

    wherever you are. i love you. thanks jeff, thankyou. thankyou so much

  45. Ignacy Duszyński

    thanks for everything, Jeff - R.I.P

  46. James P. IV

    perfection

  47. James P. IV

    this is no doubt in anybody's mind that this man's genius and natural talent as well as his personality was most definitively taken from us way before his time coming

  48. Phoebe Richards

    This calms my soul

  49. fulano

    Tuning?

  50. Simon Mariner

    A gift to us all he was..

  51. Future Vamp

    He is just like singing inside my heart

  52. Guilherme Schmitz

    Perfeito

    Jeff's Cover Version is the best! I love Nina Simone's too.
    Bob Dylan's original is just as moving even though it doesn't emphasize the song's underlying sadness.
    Anyway, not to compete obviously :) , but just out of admiration for these artists, that I couldn't possibly get tired of, here's my version.

  54. Sam Bracken

    10 times better than Bob's original

  55. MojoPin1983

    Fantastic!

  56. 1973cableguy

    Thinking of Jeff on his Birthday. 2017

  57. Cristina Martini

    Bellissima! Come del resto tutte le sue canzoni. ...sono una più bella dell'altra. ...grande Jeff Buckley!

  58. Philip Hayfield

    A musical orgasm

  59. Alisson Melo

  60. hxlxnska

    June Asiimwe

    I'd also add Bowie.

  61. Gold Buckley

    This song helped me so many times, specially last ones, as the firsts ones. My love from the very first moment, til the world stops spinning round

    lucy

    Amazing song
    Beautiful cover

  65. Gonzalo Lopez

    This song changed my life. Period.

  66. sochuiwon priscilla

    Damn I need this on vinyl

  67. Bryn Crosby

    Anybody know how he played this on guitar?? Alternate tuning perhaps? Need to figure this out!

    linda ralston

    Sure its alternate tuning. Romeo and Juliet was alternate tuning, as was Angie, by the Stones.

    MojoPin1983

    Standard tuning.

  68. Kimberly Kuhr

    Love this

  69. Courtney Davison

    He saw inside my soul.

    Bob Dylan king

    thank u for posting this for some reason the description has the wrong ones and they're way off lol

  74. lou denechere

    magnifique....

  75. SOI CẦU MẠNH AN

    How in the name of all is holy has this got 264 dislikes? Fucking morons

  76. M C

    I usually like original versions better because they are usually way more heart-felt than covers, where other musiciand add some singing skills which make them great, but sound slighltly artificial...But Jeff Buckley is a completely different kettle of fish. He makes songs way way way better than their original creators; he adds the singing skills but with such a load of feeling and emotions that great songs become masterpieces.
    Words cannot describe what his music makes me feel.

    Bill Howie

    I could not agree more. I fall in love with his genius a little bit more every time I listen to it.

    margaret nesbeth

    I also agree, he sings a cover song as if it had never been sung by another, he puts in the magic,RIP Jeff.

  77. Chris Mckee

    Don't cry because he's gone, smile because he was here with his amazing voice, talents and personality. Happy birthday Jeff

    Izayah Luna-Goddard

    Preach it, brotha

  78. Vicki B.

    And this was a just a demo too. Can you imagine what he would've done with this as a finished song? Could've turned out to be a true masterpiece. Sadly, the world will never know. As it stands, it is a masterpiece in its own right. Stuns my soul.

  79. jonathan cruzado

    First time I ever heard of this guy... I can tell you all that hes definitely still alive in so many hearts

  80. Jake Carroll

    You ever find out something about someone? Someone you know so well, but then it just changes you. Not how you feel about them but just changes how you understand them. Thats what this song makes me remember. That feeling of total ignorance and renaissance.

  81. PAOLO GALI RAMOS CHAYÑA

    the best singer of the world.

    Vicki B.

    Bar none.

  82. John C

    message to all men including myself. be good to your woman, treat her right, give her safety protection respect and pleasure. your world beholds beautiful things.

    Katrina C

    I sent this to my husband. Right after I had to walk out of our house. Your comment (with credit), This song, and a copy of Grace (I had 2). He never liked my music. As a result, 'Lover You Should've Come Over' is his, "anthem of agony". *It is your comment that made me decide I needed to introduce Jeff Buckley into his life.* Thank you.

    WillJM81280

    Do yourself a favor, start listening to Patrice O’Neal and AMS strategies. For Christ’s sake man, you are so whipped I’m getting sympathy marks on my back. Also, if you have a woman, she’s cheating on you.

  83. Tamre Davidson

    what a genius! so smooth and beautiful!!♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

  84. Jacob Suddreth

    I grew up listening to this man never actually knowing the meaning behind the music or even understanding what he was saying, but the mood and tone of any of his music transcends words, its a interactive emotion that all people can groove and sympathize to.

  85. catherine ullman

    he was such a beautiful soul, so sad he was taken so young like his father, love their music, truly amazing musical artist.

  86. Ginette Pine

    Heartfelt.

  87. Caracol. A

    Outstanding voice! Amazing! :)

    Amanda Custer

    bahhahahaha! that made my day

    Vicki B.

    Omg.... I just peed myself. Bwahahahaha.

    Eman Blanco

    33hegemon I'm singing that part everytime i don't get anything i want... till me death bed

    Josie Foxton

    This made me properly laugh while in the very dark place that sometimes brings you to Jeff Buckley. Thanks

  89. rasp berry

    She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
    She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
    And she aches just like a woman
    Buy she breaks just like a little girl.
    <3

  90. Fabián Muñoz

    This man make me cry every time i listen ... angel voice

  91. Abigail Jensen

    Jeff has made such an impact in my life. Every single song he has ever written can make me cry of both sadness and happiness. His voice is so beautiful and haunting. I have never been more in love with a man, although he may not physically be with us. His spirit will always be among us, he will forever be missed.

  92. Matt Begley

    JEFF NAILED ONE TUNE....COVER TUNES AFTER THAT

  93. Bruno Vidalovitch

    Comme tous ce qu'il a touché il le sublime, un artiste exceptionnel
