Green & Gold
Lianne La Havas Lyrics


Six years old
Staring at my nose in the mirror
Trying to dip my toes in the mirror
Thinking, "who's that girl?"
And "does the mirror world go on forever?"
Calmly, you roll
Sharpening the knives in the attic
Trying to watch cartoons through the static
Thinking, "where am I gonna be
If I'm ever twenty-three?" Oh

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Found an old friend
Meeting my guitar in the city
Feeling like a star in the city
And suddenly it seems that I'm where I'm supposed to be, oh
And now I'm fully grown
And I'm seeing everything clearer
Just sweep away the dust from the mirror
We're walking hand in hand on the warm white sands

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Ancient stone
Oh, green and gold
Ancient stone
Oh, green and gold
Ancient stone
Oh, green and gold
Ancient stone
Green and gold

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Ancient stone
Green and gold
Those eyes you gave to me (ancient stone)
You gave to me (green and gold)
Ancient stone
Green and gold

Six years old
Staring at my nose in the mirror
Trying to dip my toes in the mirror
Thinking Whos that girl?
And Does the mirror world go on forever?
Calmly you roll
Sharpening the knives in the attic
Trying to watch cartoons through the static
Thinking where am I gonna be
If Im ever twenty-three? Oh

Im looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Found an old friend
Meeting my guitar in the city
Feeling like a star in the city
And suddenly it seems that
Im where Im supposed to be oh
And now Im fully grown
And Im seeing everything clearer
Just sweep away the dust from the mirror
Were walking hand in hand
on the warm white sands

Im looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Ancient stone
Oh green and gold
Ancient stone
Oh green and gold
Ancient stone
Oh green and gold
Ancient stone
Green and gold

Im looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Im looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

The beginning of this song is nostalgia for me. It takes me back to my childhood...fall time...playing in the leaves. My mama bagging the other piles of leaves...She was so happy. I love you Mommy RIP. 💕

She’s a gifted guitarist. A brilliant lyricist. And her voice.. a flute, a tenor sax… and she swings! Sublime stuff.

gabriel rosas

Shes a very gifted musician, but all her characteristics are very common, the difference is that she does a lot all by herself which is truly inspiring.

Jemmy Tsirin

I’m a fan from China, I did translate song lyrics of Lianne’s latest album to Chinese on domestic mainstream musical App to get more people indulged in her angelic voice. I tried to get those lyrics poetic and aesthetically, hoping more and more people can enjoy :D

Luca Anamaria ♬

She really is very talented and a lovely inspiration. ❤️

Vanne Aleman

Ayer tuve oportunidad de escucharla como telonera de Coldplay y quede impactada, que voz tiene esta mujer!

Joshua Bruna
