"A Word in Spanish" as written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin....
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

    General CommentIT MEANS VERY Much to me... it's one of my favourite songs at all. it make you feel the magic emotion, when you are in love with someone you don't know well, but feelings are all above you, all above any kind of understanding ... it's a feeling you can't explain with words but you can imagine thinking of when you're watching a film and, in a sequence, you see yourself
