Argentine proverb

I look at you, you bite your tongue. You don’t know why or where I’m coming from. But in my head I’m close to you, we’re 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’m not lost, just undiscovered. You see the look that’s on my face. You might think I’m out of place. I’m not running, I’m not hiding. But if you dig a little deeper, you will FIND ME.

James Morrison

What heart can think, or tongue express, The harm that groweth of idleness?
