In 2015 is Alice Merton voor het eerst te horen op het album The Book Of Nature van Fahrenhaidt. Ondertussen start ze haar eigen platenlabel Paper Plane Records waar ze eind 2016 het nummer No Roots uitbrengt dat later de tweede plaats in Duitsland weet te bereiken. Het nummer wordt ook gebruikt in de reclamecampagne van Vodafone. Terwijl Merton in Duitsland haar tweede single Hit The Ground Running uitbrengt groeit in ons land de aandacht voor No Roots.

Songtekst

I like digging holes and
Hiding things inside them
When I grow all the 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 time around
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
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
I've got no roots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
I've got no roots

I like standing still for
That's just the 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
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
I've got no roots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
I've got no roots

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

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

I've got no roots
No roots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
I've got no roots

I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
But my home was never on the ground
I've got no roots
I've got no roots
