This is not my tongue
So when I find it in my mouth
I roll it around
I give it a try
But rarely in the public eye
(I) feel uncomfortable with my second tongue

Esta no es mi lengua
Cuando la encuentro en mi boca
Me la muerdo con los dientes
Hablo lentamente
Pero casi nunca con mi gente
Estoy incómodo con mi segunda lengua

This is not my skin
But I wear it every day
It was darker when skies were brighter
Now it’s lighter from the gray
And I’m afraid it affects how you hear what I say
So uncomfortable with my second tongue

Este no es mi color
Y el cambio me dio dolor
Cuando era más oscuro
Yo estaba seguro
De que los Puros podían oírme mejor
Muy incómodo con mi segunda lengua

No son mis lenguas, ni mi boca, ni mis labios
Y no mantengo dos historias en mi voz
Mostly tongue-tied, I hide the words inside my mouth
Because I am afraid of how they will come out
So uncomfortable con mi segunda lengua
Estoy incómodo with my second tongue
