When A Woman's Weeping
Słowa i muzyka: Tamara Kalinowska
Tłumaczenie: Zdzisław 'The Bat' Zabierzewski

Of all the sorrows I've witnessed
Those sorrows with so much meaning
Just one, I think, is the deepest
It's when a woman's weeping

That act of despair is infrequent
Unlike what's on films or in theatre
'Cos when a woman's weeping
It's not like the weep of a maiden

It's not like escaping
No woman resorts to sheer wailing
It's not any yearning
A woman can wait when she's waiting

But when there's no pain left to feel
No reason to live and to be
The hope for someone to lean on
Has got to start fading

You should grow equal to her tears
To say: her sobs mean that she is
To say: her sobs prove her endurance
You should grow equal to her tears

To say: her sobs mean that she is
It's not a girl's sobs, but a woman's
You claim that you know all her patterns
For all things you find explanation

Don't say that tears cause no blindness
Don't ever mock desperation
Hide in a song if you want it
If nothing else is worth trying

But be at hand for a moment
When there's a woman crying
You should grow equal to her tears
To say: her sobs mean that she is

To say: her sobs prove her endurance
You should grow equal to her tears
To say: her sobs mean that she is
It's not a girl's sobs, but a woman's
