Lyrics

Lyrics are property and copyright of their owners, and provided here for educational purposes only.

Don't think me unkind
Words are hard to find
The only cheques I've left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind
And when their eloquence escapes me
Their logic ties me up and rapes me

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They're meaningless and all that's true

Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
And no one's jamming their transmission
'Cos when their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and rapes you

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They're meaningless and all that's true

Spanish lyrics :

No preguntes mas 
Si este amor es verdad 
Si es un sueno o realidad 
O un simple viaje especial 

Quiero que sepas que no miento 
Quiero cantarte lo que siento 

De do do do De da da da 
Te digo con sinceridad 
De do do do De da da da 
Repito con honestidad 
De do do do De da da da 
Te busco con loca ansiedad 
De do do do De da da da 
Te quiero con velocidad 

Tu me das el paraiso 
En todo lo que yo presiso 
persist 
Con tus palabras me desliso 
En un prufundo precipicio 

Quiero que sepas que no miento 
Quiero cantarte lo que siento 

De do do do De da da da 
Te digo con sinceridad 
De do do do De da da da 
Repito con honestidad 
De do do do De da da da 
Te busco con loca ansiedad 
De do do do De da da da 
Te quiero con velocidad 

Whoa... 
Quiero que sepas que no miento 
Quiero cantarte lo que siento 

De do do do De da da da 
Te digo con sinceridad 
De do do do De da da da 
Repito con honestidad 
De do do do De da da da 
Te busco con loca ansiedad 
De do do do De da da da 
Te quiero con velocidad
