    Why We Speak

    [Intro: Esperanza Spalding]
    L'eau
    Terre
    Feu
    Air

    [Verse 1: Esperanza Spalding]
    Coeur de l'eau
    Coeur de terre
    Ils s'étouffent dans votre papier cadeau
    I cut the bow and remember
    Vous n'avez jamais eu la liberté de donner
    C'est dans l'esprit de la terre
    Ce qui n'a pas de prix
    N'a pas de prix

    [Pre-Chorus: Esperanza Spalding]
    Tout est durci maintenant
    Qui peut même encore pleurer
    We got a long way left to burn
    But it's easier when you know water is alive in you
    Nous sommes réveillés maintenant
    It's love alive (Une cuisse a la porte)
    Et l'arbre de vie
    Et l'œuf cosmique
    Et le sang de la terre

    [Chorus: Esperanza Spalding]
    Se souvenir
    Se souvenir
    While we speak the English
    Se souvenir
    While we speak the French
    Se souvenir
    While we speak the Spanish
    Se souvenir
    And bargain with the vendors
    Se souvenir
    Not to sell our souls
    Se souvenir
    In between, remember how to speak
    Out of my mouth before I had to say
    Nobody ever asked us if we wanted it

    [Verse 2: Esperanza Spalding]
    Je me suis souvenu
    Toutes les sept couleurs du ciel
    Et c'est dans le cœur de mon ventre

    [Pre-Chorus: Esperanza Spalding]
    Tout est durci maintenant
    Qui peut même encore pleurer
    We got a long way left to go, but it's easier when you know water is alive in you
    Nous sommes réveillés maintenant
    It's love alive (Une cuisse a la porte)
    Et l'arbre de vie
    Et L'œuf cosmique
    Et le sang de la Terre

    [Bridge: Q-Tip]
    Sometimes in life when you go too far
    The truth will bring you to who you are
    Sometimes in life when you go too far
    The truth will bring you to who you are
    Sometimes in life when you go too far
    The truth will bring you to who you are
    Sometimes in life when you go too far
    The truth will bring you to who you are

    [Verse 3: Q-Tip]
    Life can bring you down when you're living in it
    These circles and cycles go round though you even spin it
    But you stoppin it when your shoulder is a reminder
    To not bring yourself in the ground, to yourself be kinder
    Sometimes I drive right past by truth even in the rear view
    Driving aimlessly around with nowhere to steer to
    She ain't distributing the vibes like an abstract poet
    But if somebody ask who you are, well, you better know it, better know it, better know it

    [Chorus: Esperanza Spalding]
    Se souvenir
    Se souvenir
    While we speak the English
    Se souvenir
    While we speak the French
    Se souvenir
    While we speak the Spanish
    Se souvenir
    While we ah
    Se souvenir
    And bargain with the vendors
    Not to sell our souls
    In between, remember how to speak
    L'eau
    How we speak
    Air
    How she speaks
    Out of my mouth before I had to say
    Nobody ever asked us if we wanted it
    Ah
    Air
    To remember after all their sage disaster are done
    Se souvenir
    Se souvenir
    Se souvenir
    How to cry
    How to ground
    How to burn
    How to breath
    Se souvenir
    To remember after all their sage disaster are won

    [Outro: Esperanza Spalding]
    How to ground
    How to burn
    How to breath
    Se souvenir
    L'arbre de vie
    L'œuf cosmique
    Et le sang de la terre
    Se souvenir
    L'arbre de vie
    L'œuf cosmique
    Et le sang de la terre
    We got a lot left to unlearn
    But it's easier when you know water's alive in you
    It's alive
    L'arbre de vie
    L'œuf cosmique
    Et le sang
    Coeur de l'eau
    Coeur de terre
    Se souvenir
