Roots Before Branches - Room For Two

You know the feeling. It's one like this: Your hair's standing up on end, shivers going down your spine, a lump coming into your throat, even tears running down your face and you just can't stop. Thats the way I felt listening to this song. The song just brings back a lot of memories for me, Some of these memories I just want to let go of, Some I don't. For me its a song about letting go, Wether its a family member passing away, Losing a friends or a breakup. The song makes me realise that the people in my life i've lost, I had to lose in order to grow up and sometimes its better to let people you love go, No matter how hard that might be. So here are the lyrics but If your reading this i advice you to go listen to the song, If you haven't heard it on Glee. lol :P

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
Seein'
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'
Oh, but when you come
And do it best
There ain't nothin'
To stoppin' east to west
(I'm not sure
if this is right)
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
