What's happened to me?
I look into my loved ones' faces,
This skeleton key can't open up their secret places,
I spend a feverish night deciding what I'll say, but words are not enough to carry days.

All around the world, (it's the same thing)
Yeah, all around the world, (it's the blood in the words)
Oh, all around the world, (same pages)
Yeah, trying to speak the language of love,
Trying to speak the language of love.

What's happened to me?
I'm walking in the bones of a mortal?
The message is brief - I'm talking like there's no tomorrow,
I don't believe in cinematic confessional scripts,
I find the greater verbs blister my lips.

All around the world, (it's the same thing)
Yeah, all around the world, (it's the blood in the words)
Oh, all around the world, (same pages)
We're trying to speak the language of love,
Trying to speak the language of love.

Up against the tide of unjust years,
Sentimental whispers seem to lose their meaning.

What's happened to me?
I look into my loved ones' faces,
Oh, what matters to me?
What matters in the four walled spaces?
I beg my flesh and bone to carry all I feel,
A whirling wheel that words cannot conceal.

All around the world, (it's the same thing)
Hey, all around the world, (it's the blood in the words)
Oh, all around the world, (same pages)
Try to speak the language of love,
Try to speak the language of love,
All around the world, (it's the same thing)
Oh, all around the world, (it's the blood in the words)
Yeah, all around the world, (same pages)
We're trying to speak the language of love,
Trying to speak the language of love,
Trying to speak the language of... language... language of love.

Language of love,
Language of love,
Language of love,
Ooh.
