Speaking a Dead Language - Joy Williams

C             G         Am    F
 We built a tall, tall tower
C             G                Am  F
 Towards the sun, towards the sun
C            G                Am   F
 Took some words and built a wall
C               G               Am   F
 And called it love, called it love
Dm                     Am  G  Dm                 Am
 Somewhere in all the talking, the meaning faded out

C     G      Am                   
Oh, I wonder when did it all stop making sense?
C       G      Am   F
I don't understand
C   G       Am                  
I remember, we were so sure, so innocent
C       G         Am   
Oh, but that was then
                C G  Am
Can we ever go back again?
                C G Am F
Can we ever go back?


You're speaking a dead, dead language
You don't sound like yourself
I hope it's just lost in translation
So why don't you show, don't try to tell

Brick by brick, we started crumbling
Will I find you when it falls?


Oh, I wonder when did it all stop making sense?
I don't understand
I remember, we were so sure, so innocent
Oh, but that was then
                 D    Bm G D Em A
Can we ever go back?

B     Em   Bm
Don't hold your breath
G     D
Look around
       Em     A   B      Em
Try to add it up, pin it down
        C       C G  F
But you can't


Oh, I wonder when did it all stop making sense?
I don't understand
I remember, we were so sure, so innocent
Oh, but that was then
Can we ever go back again?
                C G Am
Can we ever go back?
