      About "Nothing Clings Like Ivy"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello & The Imposters - "Nothing Clings Like Ivy"

      Nothing clings like Ivy
      Frightened by the dark
      Though she cuts deep
      It never leaves a mark
      No one quite like Ivy
      Ever gets it straight
      What she believes
      She won't negotiate
      All the words of tenderness
      That never quite got through
      She said "You know how young girls are
      From my contempt for you."
      Outside in the hollow
      She may dare herself
      For there may be
      A serpent in the grass
      Nothing clings like Ivy
      Trying to scare herself
      And it may strike or
      Wait for her to pass
      All the words of tenderness
      That she never possessed
      "So what's the use of promises?
      I had my fingers crossed."
      All the words of tenderness
      That never quite got through
      She said, "I laughed behind your back
      When I told them to you."
      Nothing clings like Ivy
      Frightened by the dark
      Though she cuts deep
      It never leaves a mark
