English translation:mostly jibberish
Explanation:
the German is very ungrammatical, could be translated as,

I could then say words to you, dear...


ich - I
könnten - could
Sie - you
However, "ich könnten Sie" is grammatically incorrect; it should be "ich könnte Ihnen..."
danner - is not a word; might possibly be dann - then
Wörter - words
sagen - say, tell
liebe - dear
(or the noun - note the capital L, Liebe = love)
