Oh when I was a little child
my days were happy
free and wild
but when in love I couldn't say
the words I wanna say today.
Those words were always spinning in my head
I used to whisper them at night in bed
and when alone I didn't try to hide
those magic words I kept inside.
Love is kind
love is all around
it's a lovely sound
lost and found
love is free
love's been good to me
I'm in love
I'll survive 'cause the language
of love is alive.
I wanna say the words of yesterday
I wanna love you in the same old way
the words of love are coming close to shore
so let me say them more and more.
