Elton John - "A Word In Spanish Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

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 you glide right through me
As if I was a ghost
Each time that you approach
If I only could tell you

If you only would listen
I've got a line or two to use on you

I don't understand
I've got a romance we could christen
And there's a word in Spanish
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
If you don't understand it's love
Read it in my eyes
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
