Esperanza Spalding – Ebony And Ivy lyrics
Seeds grow on the mountain
You can dig it with a silver spoon
Float it off to market
Hawk and talk it from hot-air balloons
Get your good old-fashioned learning

Hear the bell in summers
Ending underneath the apple tree
Time to choose a branch
And build your nest of animosity
Now we're really, really learning

It's been hard to grow outside
Growing good, and act happy
And pretend that the ivy vines
Didn't weigh our branch down

It's been hard to grow outside
But we're finally happy
Were the sage on the mountain now
Is it plant or animal

Seeds grow on the mountain
Around the fountain of unfiltered truth
Someone's lack the well you might contaminate their point-of-view
And the taste of high-class feelings

Peeking through the keyhole
Fester people watch the mastery
One degree of kneeling separates the heads from loving need
And the art of low class feeling

It's been hard to grow outside
Growing good, and act happy
And pretend that the ivy vines
Didn't weigh our branch down

It's been hard to grow outside
But we're finally happy
Were the sage on the mountain now
Is a plant or animal

It's been hard to grow outside
Growing good, and act happy
And pretend that the ivy vines
Didn't weigh our branch down

It's been hard to grow outside
But we're finally happy
Were the sage on the mountain now
Is a plant or animal

It's been hard to grow outside
Growing good, and act happy
And pretend that the ivy vines
Didn't weigh our branch down

It's been hard to grow outside
But we're finally happy
Were the sage on the mountain now
Is a plant or animal
