Staples, Mavis - The Root Lyrics




You can dig all day and never find the root
You gonna get dirty child digging for the root
If you looking for an answer what's wrong with the truth!
Keep digging child looking for the root

Look for love, it must be love
Look for love, it must be love

To be born is original, original is a sin
There's no one who can fix it, it's forgiveness in the end

Look for love, it must be love
Look for love, it must be love

Come on now, mhmmm

And we keep reaching, reaching for the fruit
We keep digging digging for the root
If you looking for an answer what's wrong with the truth!
Keep digging child looking for the root

Look for love, it must be love
Look for love, it must be love
It must be love, look for love
Look for love, love

Ooooo, ooh yeah, keep looking, well
Keep on reaching, keep reaching
Digging (aha)
Keep loving, loving, loving
Keep looking
Look for love, find your love
Love on

If you looking for an answer what's wrong with the truth?
Keep digging child looking for the root!
