Mother Tongue

Album: Amo (2019)
Charted: 68
  • I didn't see it coming
    But I never really had much faith
    In the universe's magic (Magic), oh, no
    Till it pulled us to that time and place
    And I'll never forget
    When the floodgates opened, we, we cried an ocean
    It still has me choking; it's hard to explain
    I know you know me, you don't have to show me
    I, I feel you're lonely, no need to explain

    So don't say you love me "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue
    So don't say you love me; "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue

    And yeah, I could be punching
    But I always tend to fluctuate
    And I feel sick that I'm buzzing, oh, love, I'm in trouble
    I'm sorry, but you got me gushing all over the place
    I never wanna get wet
    But I think we're chosen like our fates were woven
    And all of those bad choices were left turns on the way

    So don't say you love me "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue
    So don't say you love me "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue

    I think best way to explain, it's like (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
    Yeah, kinda like that, but little more (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
    Yeah, all makes sense right like (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
    Like (Oh-oh, oh-oh)
    Like (Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)

    So don't say you love me "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue
    So don't say you love me "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue
    So don't say you love me "Fala amo"
    Just let your heart speak up, and I'll know
    No amount of words could ever find a way to make sense of this
    So I wanna hear your mother tongue Writer/s: Jordan Fish, Lee Malia, Matthew Kean, Matthew Nicholls, Oliver Sykes
