Roots and Wings

We were young and so self assured

World at our feet

Place in the world full secured

Ready to succeed

.

Youthful wings ready to fly

Rooted legs, the past was tied

Unafraid to make it on our own

Energized with the promise of life

.

.

The world was waiting for us to embrace

The globe was all ours to take

Success to chase, dangers to face

Life at its height, ours to make

.

.

Times were changing and we were full aware

Years passing so fast so we'd take care

We molded dreams and wishes of hearts

To become new life starts

.

In clearly defined teen rebelliousness

We'd fight for the right to impulsiveness

We'd leave behind childhood homes

Unafraid to make it on our own

.

.

The world was waiting for us to embrace

The globe was all ours to take

Success to chase, dangers to face

Life at its height, ours to make

.

.

We'd take control, we'd take control

And steer life where we want to go

We'd take a hold, we'd take a hold

And make a life all of our own

.

So drunk on life

So drugged in love

Addicted to the world around

Full in time

Excited enough

Way too high to keep our feet on the ground

.

.

The world is waiting for me to embrace

The globe is all mine to take

Success to chase, dangers to face

Life at its height is mine to make
