Sidetracked to those steps today
The ones we always had to take
Our best-potential-friends to by the lake
The water's down, but it works for me
It always rises in the spring
Whether they'll be here to see it or not

That rope's still in the tree
That none of us can ever seem
To muster up the guts to just jump out of

The roots keep feeding and spanning state lines
That never really mattered to me
Too deep to sever, they keep me connected
To best friends I never get to see

I watch the seeds we've planted grow and consume
Every crisis we go through
Be it place or man, or the way I live
Nothing has entirely destroyed me yet

The roots keep feeding and spanning state lines
That never really mattered to me
Too deep to sever, they keep me connected
To best friends I never get to see

Well, not "never" but never enough
Considering reminders that I stay so proud of
Pictures of couches thrown on to fires
And hotel parties in The 'Brier
The first time we felt west coast sand
And came back home to see that no one understands
Save the few who take the time at night to send
Messages that read, "let me know when you make it in

Safe and sound"
I don't know what I'd do if you weren't around
You're why this means so much, knowing all that I'll give up
Based on four years worth of precedent and repetition

The roots keep feeding and spanning state lines
That never really mattered to me
Too deep to sever, they keep me connected
To best friends I never get to see
