Young Guns – Speaking In Tongues

I guess I
Thought we were indivisible
Remember when
The distance wasn’t insurmountable?
I’d run all night
Just to hear you speak in tongues to me
Now we stare at phones
And talk in awkward teenage poetry

When I get to you, yeah my blood runs cold
‘Cuz I don’t recognize the person I behold
Underneath the moon, yeah we shake our bones
But I don’t understand

[Chorus:]
When you speak in tongues
(In tongues)
I can’t understand a single word you say
Sex and politics a dangerous game we play
It’s all we’ve ever known
(We’ve ever known)
(We’re speaking in tongues)
Face to face but miles away
(We’re speaking in tongues)
I can’t find the words to say
(We’re speaking in tongues)
You’re speaking in tongues
(Hey!)
You’re speaking in tongues to me

I confess I
Was never one for waxing lyrical
But the radio
Taunts me with its modern parables

It don’t make sense but it’s all I know
When you’re face down there’s still further to go
Underneath the moon yeah we shake our bones
But I don’t understand

[Chorus]

I danced with the devil
In the pale moonlight
You’ve got such a sharp tongue
Cuts me like a knife

I danced with the devil
In the pale moonlight
(O-o-o-oh)
You’ve got such a sharp tongue
Cuts me like a knife
Oh!

(We’re speaking in tongues)
I danced with the devil
(We’re speaking in tongues)
I danced with the devil, I
(We’re speaking in tongues)
I danced with the devil
(Hey!)
In the pale moonlight
