"Like Only a Woman Can" is a song written by Irish singer Brian McFadden. It was first released as a single in Ireland only, where it reached the #1 position in April 2007. In March 2008, an alternative version of the song was released in Australia and New Zealand, as the lead single from McFadden's second studio album, Set in Stone, where it peaked at #13 and #39 respectively.[1] McFadden explained in an interview that, "It is an open and frank love-song to someone who has helped the writer find redemption. It's a song about Delta. Equally, it's me admitting the mistakes of my past, while looking forward to the future."[2] The video for the song was shot in Brisbane, Australia.
