A few days later, on November 11, the song was listed and quickly sold to a user on the site's demo storefront, where it was thereafter shared among fans.

Lyrics

It is not presently possible to verify some of the lyrics due to lack of verifiable sources, insufficient fidelity of audio, or mumbled vocal delivery. We encourage users to accept this ambiguity and refrain from attempting to guess.

I feel a dagger turning in my heart
I don't even know where I can start
Can we wake up from this dream?

You want to be a woman
What can I do?
You want to be a woman
Can I love you?

I ... the way you were
You were the one thing of which I was sure
Now you wanna blow my mind

You want to be a woman
What can I do?
You want to be a woman
Can I love you?

I don't know if I can adapt to this
There are so many thing that I will miss
I guess I should let it go

You want to be a woman
Can I love you?
You want to be a woman
What can I do?
