LyricsEdit

Rachel:
Hey, hey
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 (Finn):
Oh, why (Oh) do I reach (Oh) for the stars (Oh)
When I (Oh) don't have wings (Oh) to carry (Oh) me that far? (Oh, oh)
I gotta have

Rachel and Finn:
Roots before branches

Rachel:
To know who I am

Rachel and Finn:
Before I know who I wanna be
And faith to take chances

Rachel:
To live like I see

Rachel and Finn:
A place in this world for me, oh oh

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, ooh)

Oh, I start to run and then I fall
(Start to run and then I fall)
Seein' I can't get it all
(Seein' I can't get it all)
Without my feet on the ground
(Oh, ooh)

Rachel (Finn):
There's always a seed before there's a rose
The more (Oh) that it rains (Oh), the more I (Oh) will grow (Oh, oh)
Gotta have

Rachel and Finn:
Roots before branches

Rachel:
To know who I am

Rachel and Finn:
Before I know who I wanna be
And faith to take chances

Rachel:
To live like I see

Rachel and Finn:
A place in this world for me, oh oh

Rachel (Finn):
Whatever comes, I know how to take it
Learn to be strong, I won't have to fake it
Oh, you're understanding, oh

But we can come and do what's best
Roaming north and south, east to west
But I'll still be standing
I'll (Oh) be standing (Oh)
If I have

Rachel and Finn:
Roots before branches

Rachel:
To know who I am (Finn: To know who I am)
Before I know who I'm (with Finn: gonna be)

Rachel and Finn:
And faith, oh, to take chances
To live like I see a place in this world
(Rachel: Gotta have)

Rachel and Finn with New Directions:
Roots before branches (New Directions: 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

Rachel:
For me, oh oh
I gotta have roots before branches, oh yeah
