Rootless
Marina & the Diamonds Lyrics


I'm a cloud drifting by
Dripping tears from the sky
I'm a snail without a shell
A leper with a golden bell
I've got nowhere to do
I'm a stray cat on the roam
Choking on a chicken bone
For a home sweet, no sweet home

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
But there's somebody that reminded them of me
Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love

I'm rootless
I'm rootless

Work your fingers to the bone
Building castles out of snow
I'm a nomad walking on
Humming to the same old song
Lower case society
In touch with no community
A kingdom without a king
With no sense of belonging

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
But there's somebody that reminded them of me

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless
I'm rootless

Running with my roots pulled up
So they could cut me free of love

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless
I'm rootless

Jagged roots through the snow
For a home sweet and no sweet home
I've got nowhere to go
I'm rootless
I'm rootless

I'm a cloud drifting by
Dripping tears from the sky
I'm a snail without a shell
Leper with a golden bell

I've got nowhere to go
I'm a stray cat on the roam
Choking on a chicken bone
For a home sweet, no sweet home

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
For something, somebody that reminded them of me

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love

I'm rootless [x2]

Work your fingers to the bone
Building castles out of snow
I'm a nomad walking on
Humming to the same old song

Lower case society
Tied to no community
A kingdom without a king
With no sense of belonging

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
For something, somebody that reminded them of me

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless [x2]

Running with my roots pulled up
So they could cut me free of love

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless [x2]

Dragging my roots through the snow
No home sweet and no sweet home
I've got nowhere to go
I'm rootless [x2]

Why is this song, even marina in general so underrated? She’s got a beautiful range, and her mezzo soprano voice could bring me to tears, like it has before honestly. I know I’m late to this, because it took me too long to actually find Marina after remembering a song of hers I had heard before. She has such a down to earth personality, and we need more artists like this.

Minh Lam Quang

@hayden criss But the list of recognised mezzo-sopranos outside of classical music on Wikipedia does include her name though.
