Glee – 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 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

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' Oh,
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
Gonna 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

    I am a girl who's about to enter my last year in high school. Seniors, when I think about this the first thing that comes to my mind is preparation for college. In my case I still don't know what I want. This song gave me an insight in life, that you shouldn't be afraid to try and experience new things. To take chances and follow your dreams. Never let anyone or anything to be a hindrance on pursuing your dreams.
    Whenever I hear this song I always remind myself that you gotta have roots before branches. Which means in life you'll experience things that would make you wanna give up, but take courage for god has conquer the world. And he will always be there in every step that we take. A mountain is no higher than your confidence because it will be under your feet when you reach tha top.
    Roots before branches, failure before success.
