Your love brought life back into me

All I wanna say to you
Oh yeah!

I was unfeeling
when you discovered me.
Gave me a reason
To not deny my needs.
I was unwilling
to give my love away,
But you decided
To give yours anyway.

Oh I can't express
The feeling I posses for you baby

All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't describe it
All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't define
Unspeakable

Mmmh, oh yeah

Never thought I needed
someone to call my own,
But now that you've got me
Don't ever let me go.
You leave me unwanting,
You silence every need.
Nothing is missing,
No love is so complete.

Oh I can't express
The feeling I posses for you baby

All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't describe it
All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't define
Unspeakable

Never had this feeling
That brings me to my knees.
You helped me recover
What's been eluding me.
You're a sensation
That makes my love run free.
And now I'm speechless
It's all so clear to me.

All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't describe it
All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't define

All I wanna say to you is na na na na
You leave me unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't describe it
All I wanna say to you is na na na na
Unspeakable
All I wanna say to you
Words can't define it
Unspeakable <

WANNA= want to

ALL I WANNA SAY TO YOU= the only thing I want to tell you. Notice the pronunciation of the letter T in TO. Since it's an intervocalic T, it is pronounced like the Spanish R in "cara" (like a quick D)

UNFEELING= The prefix UN- is negative. "I was unfeeling"= "I couldn’t feel anything"

DISCOVER= the syllable -CO- in this word is pronounced with the vowel in HUT

GAVE ME A REASON= the subject of the sentence (you) is missing. That happens sometimes in colloquial English

TO POSSES= to have (a more formal word)

UNSPEAKABLE= the prefix UN-, as we said, is negative, and the suffix -ABLE means "capable", that something can be done. So unspeakable" means "something that can’t be spoken". In this case, it’s something so wonderful that you can’t express it with words.

TO CALL MY OWN= to say that he is mine

UNWANTING= again the negative prefix. "I am unwanting"= "I don’t want anything". But in this case the verb "want" has the sense of "need", the idea is "I don’t need anything" (because you have given me all I need)


BRINGS ME TO MY KNEES= if something brings you to your knees you are forced to kneel down, as when you’re praying. This expression is used to say that something is so impressive, so overwhelming, that you fall down on your knees, as when you feel a sacred presence.

ELUDE= avoid, try not to contact

SPEECHLESS= the suffix –LESS expresses the same idea as the preposition "without", so "speechless" means literally "without speech", that is, "without words". When you are speechless you can’t speak because you’re so impressed by something that you don’t know what to say. The idea is again similar to the previous "unspeakable", but the difference is that "unspeakable" means you can’t say anything because you don’t know how to express it, and "speechless" means that you can’t say anything because you’re too impressed to talk.

This person had said goodbye to love, sure that she would never find someone to love anymore, maybe because she has a broken heart from a previous relationship.

But then, bang!, this man appears and falls in love with her. At first, she doesn’t want to start a relationship, she is afraid she might suffer again. But he is so wonderful to her, he gives her everything she needs, everything she always wanted... and finally she tears the walls down and desperately falls in love with him too!

Happy, happy.  *wink*
