A Word In Spanish Lyrics By 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 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
    i’ve got a line or two to use on you
    i’ve 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
