lyrics

I learned from early age
That putting down roots means someone can come and tear them up
But I’m watered by the tears I hide from the world
And you see every drop

You shine down with patience and understanding
And even though I’m already all grown up
It warms me up inside to see you
Like an oak tree tall and strong and I can lean on you

I’ve been a runner all my life
Feet not on the ground long enough to sink deep inside

You’ve given me the time to grow and thrive
And yeah, I’ve been a runner all my life
And now you're breaking ground with what you've found
When yeah I’ve been a runner all my life
But I’d stay for you
I’d stay for you
Won’t be uprooted anymore

I could weave through crowds and disappear
In the blink of an eye in a big city like this one
But instead I distract you from my shaking feet
Unused to tracing patterns on these streets

I’ve been a runner all my life
Feet not on the ground long enough to sink deep inside

You’ve given me the time to grow and thrive
And yeah, I’ve been a runner all my life
And now you're breaking ground with what you've found
When yeah I’ve been a runner all my life
But I’d stay for you
I’d stay for you
Won’t be uprooted

Cause you planted seeds of hope in my mind
So I branched out to places I never thought I’d find
Raised myself up so high

You’ve given me the time to grow and thrive
And yeah, I’ve been a runner all my life
And now you're breaking ground with what you've found
When yeah I’ve been a runner all my life

You’ve given me the time to grow and thrive
And yeah, I’ve been a runner all my life
And now you're breaking ground with what you've found
When yeah I’ve been a runner all my life
But I’d stay for you
I’d stay for you
Won’t be uprooted anymore
