Uncharted Meaning

Uncharted is a song written and recorded by the American singer Sara Bareilles. The song was produces by Neal Avron. it was the second single of her album Kaleidoscope heart.

On 9 November 2010, official behind-the-scenes photographs were posted to Sara's official site, showing "King of anything" filming the video. The picture showed Sara in various outfits, including a Geisha girl costume. However, nothing more was started about the concept of this video, and it was believed to be scrapped for a new version.

A music video was released on March 1, 2011 featuring artist including: Adam Lavine and Jesse Carmichael of Maroon 5, Josh Groban, Pharel Williams of N.E.R.D., Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland, Ben Folds, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, Laura Jansen, Ingrid Michaelson, Vanessa Carlton, Tegan and Sara, Cary Brothers, Greg Laswell, Adam Gardner and Ryan Miller from Guster and Keenan Cahill.

In a blog entry on her official site, Sara described the reason behind the concept:

"this video is about my journey as an artist who looks up to the people around them. This is about being fan of people who take chances, who are fearless, who have integrity and go off into the world saying yes to whats around them. its filled with some of the people in my life who do that everyday. They have impacted my world and are not only incredible artist, but great friends as well. They all worked this giant favor into their very busy lives and helped me out more than I can say."

I think this song is conveying the message that she just wants to go her own way: a path that is her own; uncharted.

Too much to hold, everybody has to
Get their hands on gold
And I want uncharted

Everyone seems to go for the same thing and follow similar paths, but she wants something different.

I know I'm getting nowhere
When I only sit and stare like

She's not getting anywhere while living the life she's leading.

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

She's going to do her own thing, be independent, and take initiative. She's going to make her own choices and take her own path.

Compare
where you are to where you want to be, and you'll get
Nowhere

Their way isn't taking them anywhere.

I'm going down
Follow if you want
I won't just hang around
Like you'll show me where to go

She doesn't know exactly where she's going, but she knows she wants to go there because she knows the alternative, which will take her nowhere.
