African Proverb

Argentine proverb

I look at you, you bite your tongue. You don稚 know why or where I知 coming from. But in my head I知 close to you, we池e in the rain still searching for the sun. You think that I want to run and hide, that I keep it all locked up inside, but I just want you to find me. I知 not lost, just undiscovered. You see the look that痴 on my face. You might think I知 out of place. I知 not running, I知 not hiding. But if you dig a little deeper, you will FIND ME.

James Morrison
