Room For Two – Roots Before Branches lyrics

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

    The meaning of this song to me is that before you can run you have to walk. There are somethings in life that take us to a place we have never before seen. One riddled with heartache and misinterpretation of the events which unfolded. This song to me is one meant for inspiration. Pick yourself up and take a chance as we as humans do throughout or lifetime. Take those baby steps and reclaim your heart and find your own place in this world. Never give up no matter how hard an obstacle may seem. Understanding of most things come from self discovery and courage to face the lesson we each have to go through to get to our own happiness. If I don't have faith in myself, love myself, and above all know my own worth how can I expect anyone else to. Those are the roots you have to get before you can have branches simply put. :)

    Everyone has a person inside them who they need to find. But to be able to find who you are you have to go through the good and bad experiences of life. You have to take chances, have faith, and through all these you'll find yourself and who you wanna be.
    Gotta have roots before branches just means that you have to grow. You have to start off small and make yourself face life, even when its hard. Growing into the person you want to be takes time.

    We all feel lost and confused. We don't know who we are most of the time and when we think we're found our way something happens and that makes us realize that maybe we still haven't found our path! I feel lost, confused and sad and no matter how hard we try it is hard to find our way. For me that music means that we have to have roots: a family, a lover something that will make us carry on and try to go far. Something that we know that we'll be there waiting for us when we fail or when we suceed.

    They messed up with the names, it's nikki anders and adam hassman not nikki hassman and adam anders. Anyways I totally love the song it's truly beautifull and I really identify myself with the lyrics. I mean, we are always imagining us in the future and dreaming of being the pritiest star but we have to follow an order, first roots then branches, first present then future. I also loved the glee version.

    When you've gone astray from your dreams, it doesn't mean it's the end of the world. Sometimes in order to achieve your dreams, you might have to take the longer route, instead of the shorter ones that are laid out, but you are unable to reach. You can be the same great person that you've always wanted to be, even if just a little fallen behind others. There's always a way, there's always a way. I wish my friends will read this, because they have been shaken up lately by reality, finally realising that there might be other paths to achieving their dreams. They are learning it the hard way.
