Elton John - "Word In Spanish" lyrics

A Word In Spanish
(Elton John/Bernie Taupin)
Elton John
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
Each time that you approach
As if I was a ghost

If you only would listen
If I only could tell you
I've got a romance we could christen
I've got a line or two to use on you
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
And the words he spoke in Spanish brought the female lead to tears
He said it with devotion, he sounded so sincere
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

Each time that you resist
And what it takes to move you
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
