Paramore - Native Tongue

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
and maybe we’re from two different worlds
but we 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 with you
ain’t it strange all the things you hear when you sit and listen
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
i was speaking in my native
speaking in my native tongue

so come on, talk it out
so come on, talk it out
so come on and talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk it out
(your voice, it brought me back from the dead)
so come on and talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk it out, out, out, out…

speaking in our native
speaking in our native tongue
we’re speaking in our native
speaking in our native tongue
(you know we speak in our native)
and all this time, i’ve been wasting my breath
just wasting my words on everyone else
(you know we speak in our native)
i was speaking in my native
speaking in my native tongue
