Roots Before Branches Lyrics

[Rachel:]
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

[Rachel with Finn harmonizing:]
Oh, why do
I reach for the stars
When I don't have wings
To carry me that far?

[Rachel with Finn:]
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

[Rachel (Finn):]
Sometimes
I don't wanna feel
(Sometimes
I don't wanna feel)

And forget the pain
Is real
(And forget the pain
Is real)

Put my head
In the clouds

Oh, start to run
And then I fall
(start to run
And then I fall)

Seein'
I can't get it all
Without my feet
On the ground
(Seein'
I can't get it all
Without my feet
On the ground)

[Rachel:]
There's always a seed
Before there's a rose
The more that it rains
The more I will grow

[Rachel with Finn:]
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

[Rachel:]
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
But I'll still
Be standing
I'll be standing

[Rachel & Finn with New Directions:]
I gotta have
Roots before branches
To know who I am (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

[New Directions:]
To take chances
To live like I see
A place in this world
For me

[Rachel:]
I gotta have
Roots before branches

Glee Quotes

Thank you so much, it really is a pleasure. While the boys chose a selection of songs that casts an eye inward on the irresponsible life choices and sexual hunger of today's modern teens we have chosen a selection of songs that speaks of the nation as a whole during these troubling times filled with economic uncertainty and unbridled social woes, because if there's two things America needs right now, that is sunshine and optimism! Also angels.

A star is a star, it doesn’t matter where in the sky I shine.
