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 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
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!
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!

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 my native aoohh)
And all this time I've been wasting my breath,
just wasting my words on everyone else!
(You know we speak in my native aoohh)
Now speaking in my native,
speaking in my native tongue!
