I made landfall on your coastline
Where no language barriers
Could hold back your smile
And you blushed when
I mumbled out some words in broken french

You whispered so softly, with none to translate
I didn't mind, I didn't mind at all
I felt sure that the message you tried to convey
Was a lush declaration of love

Now I'm looking for a lifeline
A manoeuvre to pull out of this nosedive
Cause you left me,
With promises as broken as my french

You whispered so softly, with none to translate
I didn't mind, I didn't mind at all
I felt sure that the message you tried to convey
Was a lush declaration of love

I remember your words,
As we parted misty-eyed
Under a southerly sky
Then I thought you were sad
Now from all the dictionaries I have read,
I've realized
On the last day,
You really broke my heart
In perfect french
