Root Before Branches

I love music – lyrics, singing and dancing. It amazes me that people are able to craft such emotional pieces and then share them…

This is my song – yes, it was in a Glee episode (I may do a post on why I love Glee…) but the version I listen to is by Room for Two. For a long time I didn’t realise that my roots were strong but when life almost breaks you and you find the strength to pull yourself back, you start recognise that actually they are there.

So many things
To do and say
But I can’t seem
To find my way
But I wanna know how
I know
I’m meant
For something else
But first
I gotta find myself
But I don’t know how

Oh, why do
I reach for the stars
When I don’t have wings
To carry me that far?

I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world
For me

Sometimes
I don’t wanna feel
And forget the pain
Is real
Put my head
In the clouds
Oh, start to run
And then I fall
Thinkin’
I can’t get it all
Without my feet
On the ground

There’s always a seed
Before there’s a rose
The more that it rains
The more I will grow

I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world
For me

Whatever comes
I know how to take it
Learn to be strong
I won’t have to fake it
Oh, you’re understandin’
The wind can come
And do it’s best
Blow me North and South
East and West
But I’ll still
Be standing
I’ll be standing

I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world

I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am
Before I know
Who I wanna be
And faith
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world
For me

I gotta have
Roots before branches
