​Roots

This song is by [spunge] and appears on the album The Story So Far (2002).

Hey!

You're the kid from down the street
The one we used to greet
And we're glad that it turned out good
We're pleased that you've done well
But maybe you could tell
Us, in person, like real friends should
Because it doesn't take that much
And then you find you're out of touch
With the people that you called friends
So maybe now it's time
To should drop them all a line, yeah
It's time to make amends

You shouldn't take it for granted
The roots that you planted will be fine
You should make it a mission
To go back and check from time to time...

Break out
Play about
But don't leave out
People where you started it from x2

It didn't take that much
To say you'd keep in touch
But how many people do?
They're the one's who got you there
Does it mean you have to care
I guess that bit's up to you
But they're the best days of your life
The time you learn your wrongs from right
No money can buy you those
So hold on to your past
You gotta make those friendships last
'Cause the good time comes and goes

You shouldn't take it for granted
The roots that you planted will be fine
You should make it a mission
To go back and check from time to time...

Growing up
Getting old
Don't wanna be
Left In the cold
A different place
A newer face
You're sinking fast
Without a trace
It only takes
A little while
To call 'em up
And make 'em smile...

You shouldn't take it for granted
The roots that you planted will be fine
You should make it a mission
To go back and check from time to time...

Break out
Play about
But don't leave out
People where you started it from x2

You shouldn't take it for granted
The roots that you planted will be fine
You should make it a mission
To go back and check from time to time...

OI!

Break out
Play about
But don't leave out
People where you started it from x4
