Merton, Alice - No Roots Lyrics




I like digging holes and
Hiding things inside them
When I grow old, I hope
I won't forget to find them
Cause, I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

I build a home and wait for
Someone to tear it down
Then pack it up in boxes
Head for the next town running
Cause, I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

And a thousand times I've seen this road
A thousand times

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I like standing still for
That's just the wishful plan
Ask me where I come from
I'll say a different land
But I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

I count gates and numbers
And play the guessing game
It's just the place that changes
The rest is still the same
But I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

And a thousand times I've seen this road
A thousand times

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I like digging holes, hiding things inside them
When I grow old, I won't forget to find them
I like digging holes, hiding things inside them
When I grow old, I won't forget to find them

I've got no roots!
No roots!

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
I've got no roo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oots
No!

  65. jilly G

    I couldn't quite figure what it meant to me..."..for my home was never on the ground". Finally I got it, as I was abused as a child the only safe place even inside my supposed home was actually inside my own head, my home was my own mind, private and safe nobody can read your mind. I have not stopped moving since I left that home, It makes sense to me know and it was a pretty profound realization. Thank you Alice :) Love<3Peace<3Hope
