'Native Tongue' was such a fun song to write. It was one of the first that I let go of expectations and worry for what was to become of our 4th album… And just wrote whatever came to mind. It's a song about that connection you have with a friend or with your significant other. The way that you communicate with them might be strange and unique to how you'd communicate with the rest of the world. Someone looking in on that might think the language between you and that person as completely foreign… But it makes perfect sense to the two of you. It's your heart's language.
