I don't know why
I just know I do
I just can't explain
In this language that I use
Something leaves me speechless
Each time that you approach
Each time you glide right through me
As if I was a ghost...
If I only could tell you
If you only would listen
Ive got a line or two to use on you
Ive got a romance we could christen...
And there's a word in spanish I don't understand
But I heard it in a film one time spoken by the leading man
He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere
And the words he spoke in spanish brought the female lead to tears
A word in spanish, a word in spanish...
If you can't comprehend
Read it in my eyes
If you don't understand it's love
In a thin disguise
And what it takes to move you
Each time that you resist
Is more than just a pretty face
To prove that I exist...
When manners make no difference
And my gifts all lay undone
I trade my accent in on chance
And fall back on a foreign tongue...
