"Native Speaker" as written by and Katherine Lee Austin Tufts....
Swirls around my open head for days
State a place for you to lay
The most beautiful of minds down
Softest cheeks that press so lightly
From this side I can see you
Out the corner of my eye

It doesn't really matter
How many times you say no
Cause I've seen bad hands
Continuously reflecting
My thoughts that so
And I know
That it's only about
Touching, loving you

But my mind
It feels good

Swirls around my open head for days
Made a place for you to lay
The most beautiful of minds down
Pinkest lips that kiss so nicely
Not as nice as maybe the thought of
Having you inside me
Of having you rest inside me
Of having you beside me
Of having you inside me
Oh you are my native speaker

It's fine, it's fine, it's fine
It's fine

    Lyric CorrectionPretty sure this section:
    not as nice as maybe the thought of
    having you inside me

    Is actually:
    not as nice as the thought of
    maybe having you inside me

    Really can't tell if it's inside or beside. Think it's intentionally ambiguous. Can only really make out -side me

    Lyric Correctiontheir lyrics are on their website. the correct lyrics are:

    Swirls around my open head for days
    Made a place for you to lay
    The most beautiful of minds down
    Softest cheeks that press so lightly
    From this side I can see you out the corner of my eye

    It doesn’t really matter how many times you say no
    Cause I’ve seen patterns
    Continuously reflecting my thoughts that say so
    And I know
    That days aren’t only about touch and loving you

    But my, my, my, my, my
    It feels good

    Swirls around my open head for days
    Made a place for you to lay
    The most beautiful of minds down
    Pinkest lips that kiss so nicely
    Not as nice as the thought of

    Maybe have you inside me
    Of having you rest inside me
    Of having you beside me
    Of having you inside me
    You are my Native Speaker

    It’s fine
