This was demoed in the Riot Act sessions, I wonder if one day we´ll hear a full band version. Also, there are 2001´s circa versions of Brokenhearted, Longing to Belong and Without You. Can we considered these, outtakes of this sessions?

This song has kind of plummeted for me since it came out. I think the song itself isn't good enough to save some pretty drippy lyrics.

I very rarely listen to this song (maybe 4-5 times a year), but when I do hear it I always love it.

I love this track, I don't listen to it much, but it's one of my favorite tracks Ed put out solo.

I hate that its on the soundtrack to that shitty julia roberts movie.

Yep. Also Future Days, to a worse degree.

Are we sure it's the same song? Everything about this piece feels like a second-rate version of Ed's ITW-type writing.

Pj would just turn it into a mediocre generic rock number especially if produced by BOB.

I'm not even sure I've heard this one. Ed's songs seem to all have the same title nowadays.

i think it would have ended up on Lost Dogs if it went past the Eddie acoustic demo stage, if it's even the same song

I think he's referring to the fact that "You Are"'s original title was "Undone", as per the Lost Dogs liner notes
