​Foreign Tongue

This song is by Old Man Luedecke and appears on the album My Hands Are On Fire and Other Love Songs (2010).

I'm an honest man, I've held my tongue
I've watched the morons mingle and get the job half done
Never been to the top, no I've never even tried
My principles and shyness have kept my hands tied
When I see you dear, I lose my breath
My silence and surrender dies a hundred deaths
I need the taste of your foreign tongue
I want first base I want home runs

I never held you but I don't mind trying
Sometimes silence is the same as lying

Oh Surrey girl, I love your rain
To win your love, I'd walk from Maine
I hear you speak, I lose my cool
To win the game, I swear I'll break the rules
You'll never say, "can't we just be friends"
You'll feel my love, when I hit send

I never held you but I don't mind trying
Sometimes silence is the same as lying

Don't let me scare you, don't you be alarmed
There's nothing in my heart ever do you harm
We cannot fail, we must be bold
We'll love these days I swear when we get old
Ah come on love, there's no use crying
Denying this love would just be lying

I never held you but I don't mind trying
Sometimes silence is the same as lying
