about

Along with the "I Want to Run Away", written about the love of my life. A good friend knew the misery I was in when it all ended, and after cranking out yet another gut-wrenching, heartbreaking tear-jerker - it was suggested I write something about the good of it all because those were the happiest moments in my life (so far!) - these two songs are the result of that excellent suggestion. I never think to write much when I'm happy!

I was thrilled beyond belief that the great Perla Batalla sang on the Spanish verses on this one, I am still blown away. Perla is a beautiful solo artist who used to write, record and tour with Leonard Cohen.

lyrics

I have no words to explain
I’m out of touch I’m out of pain
I don’t care I can’t contain
Tears of joy fall down just like rain

There ain’t no words for a masterpiece
Your face your hair your tiny little feet
I climbed a cliff I took a leap
Picasso paints Chavela sleeps

Este amour apasionado
Ya no puedo cantar solo toco
la guitarra
porque no tengo palabras

no no no no no no no no tengo palabras
no no no no no no no no tengo palabras
solo toco
la guitarra

I have no words to describe
What I see behind your big brown eyes
I love this fire I feel inside
I fell for you just like a child

[Chorus]
Translation:

This impassioned love
I can no longer sing
I only play my guitar
Because I have no words

No no no no no no no no I have no words
No no no no no no no no I have no words
I only play
My guitar
