Verse1:
Don't cry, try not to wait up for me tonight
I'm leaving for the future and it's bright
Being swept off my feet like a drifting kite

Verse2:
And I'm regretting all the choices that I make
But I know we can learn from our mistakes
With every single new step that we take

Bridge1:
I don't repeat myself I'm not a parrot
You know how I feel and that's apparent
Our final move's to win or lose
And I can't make you choose, it's up to you

Chorus:
And I told you my roots will keep me honest
I'll be a good boy, that I promise
If I said that I won't leave then I'll stay true
And I told you, my roots will keep me honest
If there's a bus home I'll be on it
When I told you I'm not leaving you'll
Believe it when you see I'm back for you

Verse3:
Sit tight I'm up around the world to do my thing
And every word you say I'm listening
And when I wake up it will just be me

Bridge2:
I might repeat myself am I a parrot
You know how I feel and that's apparent
Our final move's to win or lose
And I can't make you choose, it's up to you

Chorus:
And I told you my roots will keep me honest
I'll be a good boy, that I promise
If I said that I won't leave then I'll stay true
And I told you, my roots will keep me honest
If there's a bus home I'll be on it
When I told you I'm not leaving you'll
Believe it when you see I'm back for you
