Paramore - 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 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!

Paramore Native Tongue Comments
  1. Steven Villeda

    Pop rock, Power pop.

  2. Steven Villeda

    Power pop, pop rock

  3. Jaffer Toya

    Love Hayley Williams to the Jupiter!

  4. [broken machine]

    I love literally every Paramore song and I don’t even think it should be legal for a band to be this good.

  5. Matthew Lodato

    To all the critics who said Paramore was dead after the Farro brothers left, this song is for you ;)

  6. Matthew Lodato

    That part when Hayley says "we used to live like we were strangers" makes me feel happy. It shows how much the band's relationship has changed. (Also a reference to Ignorance)

  7. Fleetwood Mac n cheese

    The bridge and the outro though

  8. Fleetwood Mac n cheese

    Forever in love with this song

  9. Dalia PV.

  18. emma cloe stone gonzales

    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

    [Chorus]
    When we’re speaking in our native
    Speaking in our native tongue
    We’re speaking in our native
    Speaking in our native tongue

    [Verse 2]
    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

    [Chorus]

    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

    [Break]
    Out!

    Out!

    Out!

    [Chorus]

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

    emoangel way

    They can't break .

    Cedrick Paulme

    Kenny Wiratrijaka

    Some members cant stay

    Psychotic Riot

    Make me unhappy

    Matthew Lodato

    make bad music

  76. tay sieks21

    NOT EVERYTHING PARAMORE IS ABOUT THE FARRO. SERIOUSLY THOUGH.... IT IS NOT THE FACT THAT THE FARRO LEFT ( IT WAS THEIR CHOICE). IT IS THE FACT THAT THEY EVOVLE INTO DIFFERENT KIND OF MUSIC. SO IF YOU'RE HATING IT HEY THAT'S COOL MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T BE LISTENING.....

    cassiopée

    "the farro" Lol

  77. Martell B

    why is this a bonus track?!

    danielle miller

    Martell B shush

    Do Not Pass GO!

    Idk, but their bonus songs are usually better than their main songs and their main songs are (almost) never bad.

    Matthew Lodato

    because this world isn't perfect

  78. Isabellecpa Alencar

    amo essa música

  79. CR Barrett

    are they gonna be making anymore new music? it feels like forever since this came out o_O xx

  80. Inas Samat

    they sound different than the previous album but nevertheless their song's still sound good to hear..such a cool band 😏

  81. MISERY FACTORY

    "and all this time i' ve been wasting my breath, just wasting my words on everyone else" i love Paramore

  82. byEugenia

    I swear guys, they make me so happy!!!!!

  83. SonPan96

    That solo is fantastic.

  84. Boxlab

    I regret not listening to the bonus tracks so long ago

  85. Carlos Martins

    good band

  86. pyrokatie

    is there a reason for when she doesnt pronounce the first time the T in native but she does on the second one? sorry for being annoying, english is not my first lenguage :))

    Ashley Danielle

    Nope, no reason at all. That's just how she's singing it.

    pyrokatie

    oh thanks <3

  87. Jeanette Marrero

    why is hayley changing so much

    Macy Maxine

    because she can

  88. death

    I💜paramore

  89. victoria crecco

    THIS SONG IS EVERYTHING TO ME

  90. Lacey O

    WE ARE PARAMORE!!!!💕

  91. Christian B

    The way she sings at 2:27-2:30 is just amazing

    Macy Maxine

    and 0:00 - 3:13 :)

  92. razrv3lc

    This and Escape Route make me have hope that the next album will more "Paramore-ish". These two have the polished sound of the most recent album but the music and lyrics sound so much more similar to Brand New Eyes (which I think was probably their best album).

    Dont Know

    @Macy Maxine
    What?? I miss Zac's drums so much, they were so heavy. I hope this is true

    Love the game Hate the community

    It appears it was :)

    DG 02

    N Lin IT WAS AMAZING!!!!

    Ally Fey

    anything that paramore do is "paramore-ish", because it's by them.

    AllodsJinjer

    guess this didn't happen but hey the new album is good i hated it at first cause i expected riot 2 but i love it now

  93. rozyy21

    This song just makes me dance. Just feel it and dance! :D

  94. The Hoya Guy

    Sometimes I question why they didn’t put this song, along with Tell Me It’s Okay and Escape Route on the non-deluxe album, cuz all 3 of them are amazing songs

    Darlington Atuba

    Seriously

  95. Niki Flowers

    Ahhh!!! You guys were amazing in Memphis last night!!!! I'm so happy I got to see you!! :D

  96. warpedsavage

    that drum part at 0:32 - 34 love that part other than that awesome song

  97. Bernardine Alcantara

    i love paramore like here Rock song and more

  98. Firefist Ace

    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!
     
    Amazing part
     
    I love Paramore so much

  99. Flavia Nadieska Barea Soza
