Laid Down Roots

from by Mainframe

lyrics

Well I came into this town
With a twin-zipper backpack
A mandolin, two plastic totes,
And the shirt upon my back
I signed up for the language course
It was the simple path to choose
And any way you looked at it
I didn’t have much to loose
Now I’ve laid down roots and I’m afraid that I could lose it all
Over a petty line dispute, over a referee’s bad call
I know there’s nothing I could ever truly own at all
But these roots have grown so deep and I need somewhere to call home
Last night the wind was blowing hard
It must have tripped a car alarm
And at 3AM it woke me from
A sweet and deep slumber
I started thinking about investments
And everything I own
Responsibilities and normalcy
As everything has grown
I’ve laid down roots and I’m afraid that I could lose it all
Over a petty line dispute, over a referee’s bad call
I know there’s nothing I could ever truly own at all
But these roots have grown so deep and I need somewhere to call home
From underneath the comforter
I reached over to my wife
You’ve got to take some risks
If you want any semblance of a life
La da da da
I’ve laid down roots and I’m afraid that I could lose it all
Over a petty line dispute, over a referee’s bad call
I know there’s nothing I could ever truly own at all
But these roots have grown so deep and I need somewhere to call home
