Everything But The Girl – The Language Of Life lyrics
[Verse]
I know you'd rather talk instead
About the things inside your head
But everything, everything that I overheard
Tells me you just don't have the words

[Chorus]
Cause you never learned to speak the language of life
And here you are a grown man who can't talk to his wife
And the children you don't understand

[Verse]
You think you're come on pretty far
Still got the job, the house and the car
But there's one thing, one thing that you never get
A grip on life's sweet alphabet

[Chorus]
Cause you never learned to speak the language of life
And here you are a grown man who can't talk to his wife

[Break]
When things get out of hand
And the kids you don't understand
Love is foreign land
Over words you have no command
(You have no command)

[Piano Solo]

[Pre-Chorus]
It's not that you don't care
Admit it baby and you're half way there
Cause you know, you know that you feel much more
Than you ever have the words for

[Chorus]
Cause you never learned to speak the language of life
And here you are a grown man who can't talk to his wife
And the children you just don't understand

[Outro]
You never...
Never learned
(Never Learned)
You never learned
Language of Life
Here you are
Grown Man
