Woman Brings Man to Purpose and Light

Woman looking intently at manTwo things stand out for us in this 1970’s hit from Gerry Rafferty. First, it speaks to the sense of purpose and focus women give men. Rafferty sings,

“You brought me into the light
Threw away all those crazy dreams
I put them all behind
And it was you woman
Right down the line”

Second, it implies the importance of a woman’s trust to a man. If a woman trusts her man and doesn’t feed into his doubt about whether or not he can do whatever he is taking on its very empowering for him. As Rafferty put it below,

“‘Cause you believed in me through my darkest night
Put somethin’ better inside of me
You brought me into the light”

Likewise the opposite is true. When she justifies his doubt with her own it can be the end of whatever he is up to. Have a listen (the lyrics are written beneath the video box) and let us know your thoughts. Enjoy!

“Right Down the Line” – Performed by Gerry Rafferty

You know I need your love
You’ve got that hold over me
Long as I’ve got your love
You know that I’ll never leave
When I wanted you to share my life
I had no doubt in my mind
And it’s been you woman
Right down the line

I know how much I lean on you
Only you can see
The changes that I’ve been through
Have left a mark on me
You’ve been as constant as a Northern Star
The brightest light that shines
It’s been you woman right down the line

I just wanna say this is my way
Of tellin’ you everything
I could never say before
Yeah this is my way of tellin’ you
That every day I’m lovin’ you so much more
‘Cause you believed in me through my darkest night
Put somethin’ better inside of me
You brought me into the light
Threw away all those crazy dreams
I put them all behind
And it was you woman
Right down the line

I just wanna say this is my way of tellin’ you everything
I could never say before
Yeah this is my way of tellin’ you
Everything I could never say before
Yeah this is my way of tellin’ you
That every day I’m lovin’ you so much more

If I should doubt myself, if I’m losing ground
I won’t turn to someone else
They’d only let me down
When I wanted you to share my life
I had no doubt in my mind
And it’s been you woman
Right down the line
