Sara Bareilles – Uncharted lyrics

No words
But tears won't make any room for more
And it don't hurt like anything I've ever felt before
This is no broken heart
No familiar scars
This territory goes uncharted

Just me in a room sunk down in a house in a town
And I don't breathe
Though I never meant to let it get away from me
And now I've too much to hold
Everybody has to get their hands on gold
And I want uncharted

I'm stuck under the ceiling I made
I can't help but feeling
I'm going down
Follow if you wanna or just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So don't ask me how to get started
It's all uncharted

Each day
I'm counting up the minutes till I get alone
Cos I can't stay in the middle of it all
It's nobody's fault but I'm so low
Never knew how much I didn't know
Oh, everything is uncharted

I know I'm getting nowhere when I only sit and stare like
I'm going down

Follow if you wanna or just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So don't ask me how to get started
It's all uncharted

Jumpstart my kaleidoscope heart
Love to watch the colors fade
They may not make sense but they sure as hell made me
I won't go as a passenger, no
Waiting for the roads to be laid
Though I may be going down
I'll take in flame over burning out
Compare where you are to where you wanna be
And you'll get nowhere

I'm going down
Follow if you wanna or just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So don't ask me how to get started, oh

I'm going down
Follow if you wanna or just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go
I'm already out of foolproof ideas
So don't ask me how to get started
It's all uncharted

    I think it's supposed to be "Waiting for the roads to be lain" not "Waiting for the roads to be late.":/
    Anyway I just love this song! ^^ Reminds me of a story where a girl has never really loved or really cared about anyone, and suddenly she finds herself watching a guy leave her life as she realizes that he's everything she's ever wanted and that she loves him deeply.
    I especially love the lyric; "And I want uncharted." I think it's saying, "This hurts so much, but I want this pain." Like she'd rather have her heart hurt from a broken heart than to never have loved at all.
    Overall such a beautiful song, such an awesome meaning, and I just love how she slips the album name, "Kalediscope Heart" in. :)
