I want to speak in your tongue I want to listen with tender ears

Learning how to speak so that she can hear

I want to speak in your tongue

I want to listen with tender ears

I want the sound to ricochet across my voice box

I want my lips to vibrate a sound

That can be consumed and received

Alas I am bound and my tongue seems to deceive

Every pronunciation is something I grieve

For the language I use is not believed

If I could say the words that you must hear

And the sounds drops like rainfall on your ear

Then together we would be

Yet my knowledge is yet to be

Sufficient to have my voice box

Unlock a sound of syllables

Yet my attempts are null

New words rattle in my skull

Until they drop to my tongue

I want the words

I love you

to be sung.
