Rupert Holmes – Speechless lyrics

I can make a speech
When the mood comes to me, yes it's true
But oh pretty darlin'
I am speechless when it comes to you

Speechless when you reach for my hand
I am so speechless and I can't understand how you love me
But as long as you keep sayin' that you love me
There is nothin' I can say

Except I am speechless at the sound of your voice
I am so speechless and since I have no choice
I keep smilin' like a cat whose caught a bird
And just keep smilin'

If I dare to say a word, you'd find me mindless
And I don't really mind, love is blindness
And my mind is resigned to the kindness you keep pourin' on me
Can it be? Can it be? Can it be all for me?

I don't have a hope
If you don't dream of me, this is true
'Cause oh pretty darlin'
I am hopeless when I dream of you

Speechless and the heart never lies
I am so speechless so I speak with my eyes
I am just smilin' 'cause I've seen [Incomprehensible]
Oh, are you smilin' at my face within the darkness

When I am breathless and I come up for air
It's so endless that it gives me a scare
It's so timeless that I never touch ground
Why should I? Why should I? Why should I make a sound

I can sing your song
I can sigh in the night, this is true
But oh pretty darlin'
I am speechless at the sight of you
