В постели он говорил на французском, я - на русском.
А по английски, на котором говорили мы оба, нам друг другу было нечего сказать.

In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live we only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrified

So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That just like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing.

(Nouvelle Vague -
In A Manner Of Speaking)
