Native Tongue lyrics

How can they say
That it’s one way
When it’s the opposite?

And how can they know
The end of the story

Before I tell it?

‘Cause when I walk
Your feet, they fall
To the same beat
Or maybe we’re from two different worlds
But we've got our own language

We talk to people
But they never understand
They think we’re crazy
‘Cause it sounds like noise

When we’re speaking in our native
Speaking in our native tongue
We’re speaking in our native
Speaking in our native tongue

We used to live
Like we were strangers
We didn’t know any better
We didn’t fit
In with the out crowd
So we gave in
And we shut our mouths

But oh I love your history
And I can take it
And when you talk in code to me
I can translate it
We talk to people
But they never understand

They think we’re crazy
‘Cause it sounds like noise to them
Isn’t it strange
All the things you hear
When you sit
And listen?

When we’re speaking in our native
Speaking in our native tongue
We’re speaking in our native
Speaking in our native tongue

And all this time I've been wasting my breath
Just wasting my words on everyone else
Now speaking in my native
Speaking in my native tongue

So come on
Talk it out
So come on
Talk it out
Some come on
And talk talk talk talk talk
Talk it out
(Your voice, it brought me back from the dead, somehow)
So come on and
Talk talk talk talk talk
Talk it out

Out!

Out!

Out!

When we’re speaking in our native
Speaking in our native tongue
We’re speaking in our native
Speaking in our native tongue

And all this time I've been wasting my breath
Just wasting my words on everyone else
Now speaking in my native
Speaking in my native tongue
