We perform live shows every week, but learning to capture it for YouTube was whole new ball game haha. "No Roots" was our first video, and we filmed it live with a single microphone. It took us a few more videos to get the equipment and experience we needed to master it!

►LYRICS - No Roots
I like digging holes and
Hiding things inside them
When I grow old I hope
I won't forget to find them
'Cause I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

I build a home and wait for
Someone to tear it down
Then pack it up in boxes
Head for the next town running
'Cause I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

And a thousand times I've seen this road
A thousand times

I've got no roots
For my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
For my home was never on the ground
I've got no ro-o-o-o-o-ots
I've got no ro-o-o-o-o-ots [x2]

I like standing still
But that's just a wishful plan
Ask me where I come from
I'll say a different land
But I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

I count gates and numbers
Then play the guessing game
It's just the place that changes
The rest is still the same
But I've got memories and
Travel like gypsies in the night

And a thousand times I've seen this road
A thousand times

I've got no roots
For my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
For my home was never on the ground
I've got no ro-o-o-o-o-ots
I've got no ro-o-o-o-o-ots [x2]

I like digging holes
Hiding things inside them
When I grow old
I won't forget to find them [x2]

I've got no roots

I've got no roots
For my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
For my home was never on the ground
I've got no ro-o-o-o-o-ots
I've got no ro-o-o-o-o-ots
