Intro: Am G Am G

Am
Mother tongue
G
I speak that language
Am
There are no words
G
But there is meaning
Am
My secret love song
G
My eyes swell
Am G
I'm free

Am
Mother tongue
G
Never betrayed me
Am
Inhale your life
G
One more breath

I'm dancing
Am
Lacking wings still
G Am
I can fly from you

Am
I could lose everything
F G
Surrendering to you
Am
Like praying to a god above
F G
Who doesn't even want to know you

Am
Mother tongue
G
Today I curse you
Am
Where's my voice
G
Have I lost my virtue
Am G
How much more can I sacrifice for you

Am
I could lose everything
F G
Surrendering to you
Am
Like praying to a god above
F G Am
Who doesn't even want to know you

Am
Down on my knees for you
F
Your hands crawling through my hair
G F
I forgot to be cautious here
G Am F G
Finally I cry I cry

Am
I could lose everything
F
Surrendering
Am
Like praying to a god
F G
Who doesn't even want to know you
