  • Black Francis sings this mystical love song's bridge in the international language Esperanto. It translates as:

    "I look to the heavens for your return
    I look at your hand to see the ring
    And we will walk together to your room
    Our love will be a new
    Our love will be a new."

    Esperanto is an artificial language developed in the 1880s by Polish physician Dr. Ludwig Lazarus Zamenhof. Its name means 'the hopeful one,' the pseudonym of its inventor. Zamenhof created it to be politically neutral, transcendent of nationality, and easy to learn, hoping it would become a universal second language. Current estimates of Esperanto speakers range from 100,000 to 2,000,000 active or fluent speakers worldwide, including around a thousand native speakers who learned it from birth as one of their native languages.
