Reklaws, The - Roots (World Junior Song) Lyrics




He's a Junior
Star of his hometown team
Got the grades, got the girl, got it all so it seems
Those big game lights in his eyes never felt so alive, so wild, so free

Now the fall has come and gone
He's got his countries colors on
He's sittin' there in the drive with his dad and he says

When the stars line on up and you finally strike gold
When the pressures way too much
But the diamond starts to show
When your prayers get answered Gods plan unfolds
Now don't you forget to

Make mistakes
Lose your way
Get some dirt on your boots
Call your mom
Write your friends
Ones that were there for you
Remember all the little people when your dreams come true
Now don't you forget your roots

She has seen him
Givin' his heart to the game
Every night paid the price now he's finally got his break
Calls home saying, "Mom we've been
Dreaming bout this day"
Tears streaming down his face through the phone and his mama she says...

When the stars line on up and you finally strike gold
When the pressures way too much
But the diamond starts to show
When your prayers get answered gods plan unfolds
Now don't you forget to

Make mistakes
Lose your way
Get some dirt on your boots
Call your mom
Write your friends
Ones that were there for you
Remember all the little people when your dreams come true
Now don't you forget your roots

Now don't you forget your roots

When the stars line on up and you finally strike gold
When the pressures way too much
But the diamond starts to show
When your prayers get answered god's plan unfolds
Now don't you forget to

Make mistakes
Lose your way
Get some dirt on your boots
Call your mom
Write your friends
Ones that were there for you
Remember all the little people when your dreams come true
Now don't you forget your roots
Now don't you forget your roots
Now don't you forget your roots

  39. Scoza5611

    heartbreaking that finland got so lucky.

    Alex

    If Canada were better they would have won, Finland pressured and pressured and they won. Ofc the broken stick was hearth braking even for me ( I'm a Finn ) but if Canada were better they would have won in 60 min. And for once Finland had the luck, and not Sweden 😏

    Holo Holopainen

    What a Goal that was ! Nobody saw it Coming ! Finland has never played Canada in The Grande Finale before ! At Malmö 2014 vs Sweden / Helsinki 2016 vs Russia !

    Blazers04

    DYLAN Games in 2006, the first time the tourney was in Van-city, he was the most popular player on the team. He was a first round pick of the Canucks and he was a MONSTER.
    Anytime he’d blow a guy up (which happened often), there was a MASSIVE “LUUUUUUUUUC” shout out from the fans.
