Alice Merton – No Roots Lyrics

No Roots Lyrics by Alice Merton


[Alice Merton]
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

[Alice Merton]
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

[Alice Merton]
And a thousand times I’ve seen this road
A thousand times

[Alice Merton]
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 roots
I’ve got 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 roots
I’ve got no roots

[Alice Merton]
I like standing still but that’s just a 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

[Alice Merton]
I count gates and numbers, then 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

[Alice Merton]
And a thousand times I’ve seen this road
A thousand times

[Alice Merton]
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 roots
I’ve got 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 roots
I’ve got no roots

[Alice Merton]
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

[Alice Merton]
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 roots
I’ve got 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 roots
I’ve got no roots
(No!)
