Bring me back to that time again
When the fire is wild and the summer's red
And you walk through weeds just to make a garden
And we loved too much and we loved too hard
And it went too fast and I went too far
And nothing could have stopped me back then

Now I'm back to my childhood, I can't believe
That I was running
But I wasn't running from anything
Anything yet

Well the root still grows in the concrete fine
And you never think you'll run out of time
And the root still grows further than you know
Though the tree is scared of heights

Don't look down, it's been fifteen years
How did I get this far from what I hold dear?
I didn't think that I would need to think much
And the air this high makes it hard to breathe
And all I wanted was something I could believe
Well I believe that when you're leavin' me you're still here

And the grass will be scorched in the summer's sting
And we will dance there like it's not feeling anything
Anything yet

Well the root still grows in the concrete fine
And you never think you'll run out of time
And the root still grows further than you know
Though the tree is scared of heights

Well I'm still waiting for everyone to keep their word
It's like trying to start a fire that could not be burned
And if you wanna cut me down you better aim low
And you looked at me like I still should please ya
And you look at me like I still should need ya
And you need too much
I need too much to need this

To need this
To need this
To need this, oh oh oh-oh

To need this
To need this
To need this, oh oh oh-oh

To need this
To need this
To need this

Well the root still grows in the concrete fine
And you never think you'll run out of time
And the root still grows further than you know
The root still grows further than you know
The root still grows
At least that's what I'm told
