Music Mondays: Uncharted

I’ve spent so much of my time writing about the Liebster award I just received that I almost forgot to do Music Mondays! But I am excited about the answers I gave in the post, so you should take a look at that as well! 🙂

At the beginning of this year, I found a super appreciation for Sara Bareilles because of her music style, her originality, and her passion for music. I just fell in love with all of her songs!

 

“Uncharted” is one of my favorite songs by her. It’s so meaningful, yet so up-beat. It’s almost as if she realized that her “road less traveled through” may actually be a good thing.

I’ve always taken weird paths to my goals: the uncharted paths.

And if you have taken some strange turns in life too, you may enjoy this song (I think everyone does…).

No words, my 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
No, I never meant to let it get away from me
No, too much to hold
Everybody has to get their hands on gold
And I want uncharted

Stuck under the ceiling I made
I can’t help but feeling

I’m going down
Follow if you want I won’t just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go
I’m already out
A foolproof idea, so don’t ask me how
To get started, it’s all uncharted

Each day I’m countin’ up the minutes
‘Til I get alone, ’cause I can’t stay
In the middle of it all, it’s nobody’s fault, but I’m
So alone, 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 want I won’t just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go
I’m already out
A foolproof idea, so don’t ask me how
To get started, it’s all uncharted

Jump start 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 road to be laid
Though I may be going down
I’m taking flame over burning out

Compare
Where you are to where you want to be
And you’ll get nowhere

I’m going down
Follow if you want to or just hang around
Like you’ll show me where to go
I’m already out
A foolproof idea, so don’t ask me how
To get started

…It’s all uncharted

You know how to chart your own way better than anyone.

Go and do great things today!

  1. Cool writing topic idea, once again!! I have never heard of this song or artist, but your review of it makes me want to check both out. Finding new music to enjoy is always something that I like. Lately, I’ve been trying to lean more towards songs that give off a positive, happy vibe. Music can definitely affect a person’s mood, so I try to keep it upbeat! Thanks again for sharing this.

    1. You should definitely venture into Sara’s music. She’s a wonderful musician and artist!
      The idea came from another blog, Oh, Hello! by Kat. I have her link in the first “Music Mondays Challenge” post. 🙂 I do wish it was mine! It really is a cool idea!
      Music has incredible power over us. It’s truly amazing if you read a little more about how music influences you!
