I know you磀 rather talk instead about the
Things inside your head, but everything, everything,
That I overheard, tells me you just don磘 have the
Words. Cause you never learned to speak the language
Of life, and here you are a grown man who can磘 talk
To his wife. And the children you don磘 understand.

You think you磛e come on pretty far, still
Got the job, the house and the car. But there磗 one
Thing, one thing that you never get -a grip on life磗
Sweet alphabet. Cause you never learned to speak the
Language of life, and here you are a grown man who
Can磘 talk to his wife.

And when things get out of hand, and the kids you
Don磘 understand -love is foreing land. Over words
You have no command, you have no command
But it磗 not that you don磘 care- Admit it baby,
And you磖e half way there. Cause you know, you know
That you feel much more than you ever have the words for.
Cause you never learned to speak the language of life,
And here you are a grown man who can磘 talk to his wife,
And the children you just don磘 understand.
