Wenn Worte meine Sprache wären (German: If Words Were My Language) is the first studio album by German recording artist Tim Bendzko. It was released by Sony Music Columbia on 17 June 2011 in German-speaking Europe. Bendzko worked with music producer Swen Meyer on most of the album which features material that was either written or co-written by himself. Its music incorporates a range of the contemporary rock, folk, and pop music genres with a mix of slow ballads and jazzy uptempo tracks.

Upon its release, Wenn Worte meine Sprache wären established Bendzko as one of the biggest-selling new and upcoming acts of the year. It debuted and peaked at number four on the German Albums Chart and reached the top twenty in Austria and Switzerland. It achieved 5x gold status in Germany and was eventually certified gold and platinum in Austria and Switzerland.
