Orla Gartland – Roots lyrics

Life don't stick to you
Like it used to do
Think you've lost your shine

Wishing days away
Busy chasing trains
Leaving us behind

Let's get a ticket for those tracks
Don't say a word and don't turn back
--Let's get out of here (x2)

We can get lost between the rails
We've never been afraid to fail
--Let's get out of here (x2)

If you dig up your roots
Then I'll dig up my roots
We can take them with us
Wherever we go
And all that we are
Is in the beat of our hearts
And I know we're ready
To dive into the unknown
'Cause I'm caught in the middle

I'd rather break out on my own
Than be caught in the middle

Sights set to the sky
Sick of standing by
Getting itchy feet

Need some new places
Need some fresh faces
No one left to please

Let's get a ticket for those tracks
Don't say a word and don't turn back
--Let's get out of here (x2)

We can get lost between the rails
We've never been afraid to fail

So, if you dig up your roots
Then I'll dig up my roots
We can take them with us
Wherever we go
And all that we are
Is in the beat of our hearts
And I know we're ready
To dive into the unknown
'Cause I'm caught in the middle

I'd rather break out on my own
Than be caught in the middle

Carrying our roots
In everything we do
You know there's nothing left here for us

We got everything we need
It takes a leap to plant the seed
And you know there's nothing left here for us

So, if you dig up your roots
Then I'll dig up my roots
We can take them with us
Wherever we go
And all that we are
Is in the beat of our hearts
And I know we're ready
Yes, I know we're ready!

So, if you dig up your roots
Then I'll dig up my roots
We can take them with us
Wherever we go
And all that we are
Is in the beat of our hearts
And I know we're ready
To dive into the unknown
'Cause I'm caught in the middle

I'd rather break out on my own
Than be caught in the middle
Than be caught in the middle
