You see, my lover makes no soundHis language is his handsI watch his fingers danceand try to understandI try to understandhis elegant balletIn my heart I can hearthe words he longs to say
And so I've learned to speaka language he can hearTo tell him how I feelwhenever he his nearHe lives around the blockit's just a little walkWe'll meet tonight at eightAt eight tonight, we'll talk
Oh my love, oh my loveQuiet love, quiet loveI am calm whenever you are nearAnd somehow I can hearwhat your heart wants to say
I have a small surpriseTo spring on you tonightI'm learning how to signPlease God I get it rightIt's something that you doWith confidence and easeI'm clumsier than youThis might come out Chinese
But come and fill my heartIts never danced this wayI'm nervous and it's hardI have so much to sayI've always been afraidMy dream seemed so unrealBut now I bless this worldFor how you make me feel
Oh my love, oh my loveYou are shy, so am IBut if you would tell me that it's trueYou feel the way I doThen tomorrow can start
As we are, together we'll grow oldFor wise men always sayThat in silence there's gold.
