About this tab version
Capo Required. Standard tuning. Chords to suit acoustic guitar. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Artist: Gang of Youths 
Song: Native Tongue 
Album: Let Me Be Clear EP

Capo: 2nd
Tuning: Standard

Second verse can be played the same as the first to make it easier. The chord changes and timing may 
be difficult and sound weird.. But I guess that's just Gang of Youths. 

[Intro]

C Em F  x4


[Verse]

           C               
You are defiant, 
          Em           F            C
and I'm a Caustic' for no credible reason 
           Em             F       C
You're the nascent from living untrue 
          Em             F           Am
Still you cut me just by speaking my language 
            G              F            C    
Because you know me in the way that you do
 
            Em           F      C
Though i've nothing to awake my sense
          Em            F      C 
There is nothing in the way of truth 
          Em         F               Am
Til' you bludgeon my ears with your silence
      G              F          C  
And i cut you in the way that i do


[Pre Chorus]

                 Em             F            Am       C
And i'm ready to lie down on my back by the tower of London 
           Em      F               Am                              F          C
And stare into the sun but cause i know you so i'll just say it in my native tongue 


[Chorus]

          Em             F         C
God, you know you're the one i imagined
          Em           F            C
Yeah the first and the last on my list 
                 Em          F            Am
If there's still time we can fix what is broken 
             G             F            C  
If you still want it well, hey, here it is

[Verse]

          Em             F         Em           F
From my thoughts to my lips with a vengeance
        Em             F          Em      F
From my lips spilling out on the street 
           Em            F     Am
But in the light of you only admission 
              G           F          C  
Are you still perfect and kind as it is? 

        Em         F               C
So much more since i've been away 
    Em                 F         C
Has your heart been in states of sleep 
          Em              F         Am
Till you commandeered out starship rebellion
        G                F          C   
And you crashed it right here at my feet


[Pre Chorus]

                 Em              F         Am          C
and i'm ready to lie now with my head face down in the water 
             Em       F          Am                                        F          C
and breathe until i'm dead but i know you and i won't drown cause you're holding my breath 


[Chorus]

          Em             F         C
God, you know you're the one i imagined
          Em           F            C
Yeah the first and the last on my list 
                 Em          F            Am
If there's still time we can fix what is broken 
             G             F            C  
If you still want it well, hey, here it is

[Verse]

         C        
Some are blind 
         Em           F             C
Some are bad some are poor some are kind 
         Em            F           C
Some are dead and some only alive 
      Em          F        Am
But i made it my job to behold you 
            Em        F                  Em    F
And build a statue to you in these lines 

      Em        F          C
At a moment you were dead asleep 
     Em                F             C
Men came to take you somewhere else 
             Em                 F          Am                                             C
Though they told me that they'd tell you i loved you i said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'


[Outro]

        Em                  F          C
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          C
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          Am
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          C
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          C
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          Am
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          Am
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
        Em                  F          C
I said 'fuck you' and 'i'll tell her myself'
