"Undiscovered" as written by Steve Robson, James Morrison and Martin Brammer....
I look at you, you bite your tongue
I don't know why or where I'm coming from
And in my head I'm close to you
We're in the rain still searching for the sun

You think that I wanna run and hide
I'll keep it all locked up inside
I just want you to find me
I'm not lost, I'm not lost, just undiscovered
We're never alone we're all the same as each other
You see the look that's on my face
You might think I'm out of place
I'm not lost, no no, just undiscovered

Well the time it takes to know someone
It all can change before you know it's gone
So close your eyes and feel the way
I'm with you now believe there's nothing wrong

You think that I wanna run and hide
I'll keep it all locked up inside
I just want you to find me
I'm not lost, I'm not lost, just undiscovered
We're never alone we're all the same as each other
You see the look that's on my face you might think I'm out of place
I'm not lost, no no, just undiscovered

    General Commentthis song is beautiful....i'll think about it and go....that's me. i'm not quiet but i'm silent....it kind of runs hand in hand with being lonely in a room full of people...

    You think that I wanna run and hide
    I'll keep it all locked up inside
    I just want you to find me

    some will think oh, she's being that way cause she's depressed or something...when really what you want is for someone to look beneath beyond what you are showing, what you want is that person who will search for you as a person. that person who will work to find who you really are inside. really, those people are few and far between these days.

    but this song is super optimistic and i love it a lot!!! "i'm not lost, just undiscovered"

    General CommentIt's about someone quiet who people think is lost or uncomfortable or out of their depth. This song shows that is not true, they are really waiting for someone to realise their true potential and get to know their real personality.
    It's an optimistic song, unassuming at the beginning but with so much power at the end.

    General CommentI've always loved James Morrison.

    His voice, it's so unique, and add that to the lyrics of his songs, it comes out as a fantastic mixture.

    This is another song, where he tries to explain, from the worldly perception, he might be different, but no one has ever taken the chance/opportunity to truly figure him out. He is different in substance, because there are reasons, but characteristically, he's the same as anybody else.

    This song touches me, because there are a lot of us out there, who have differing views and opinions, but it doesn't essentially mean we're any different from the majority. We might have a different take on things, but we're all human.

    It also explains that the world , in general, refutes to understand the true potential of many of us, living by the general notions, many of us are "lost", because we're all set out to prove ourselves in our own distinct ways, but the rituals of the world confuses us, and we're left undiscovered.

    Overall, fantastic song.

    This is what an artist does, puts feelings into words.
    We're not artists because we can't do that.

    General CommentI agree with the above poster. It is about someone very quiet and shy, who goes unnoticed for most people and is waiting for someone to see his potential.

    James Morrison's lyrics are so relatable. He's great.

    General CommentYou see the look thats on my face
    You might think im out of place

    This song is amazing, and I’m sure everyone must be able to relate to it in some way. Well put vickie_d.
    People may think they know what is wrong with you when really it’s much deeper than that. You need someone to realize and look beyond the surface. You behave in a certain way in front of people (reserved, shy etc…) and you may be seen as being like that all the time perhaps ‘out of place’ when really your not.
    We all feel vulnerable at times even the person who you may expect least to feel like that, which is what I think it is trying to say ‘we’re all the same as each other.’

    General CommentRelating to no one, feeling no one is on your wave-length but overall knowing we're all the same.

    I'm not lost, I'm not lost; just undiscovered.
