lyrics

A foreign tongue
But eyes I can read
They say lonely
A foreign land
For you and me both
Ain’t it, honey?

We can’t trade words
But sharing your smile
Tells me plenty
So take my hand
And you’ll understand
I know surely

What can I say with words
I can’t hold you and show?
So embrace me, ambassador
How do they do it back home?

No silver tongue
No sweet honeyed words
Can entreat you
What melody
Will speak to your heart
And seduce you?

At odds, we still
Can sing the same tune
So come with me
Let me give you
The pure translation
Found in a kiss

Words can only deceive
What touch proves to be true
So embrace me, ambassador
How do they do it back home?
