ordinary world
came in from a rainy thursday 
on the avenue 
thought i heard you talking softly 

i turned on the lights, the tv 
and the radio 
still i can't escape the ghost of you 

what has happened to it all? 
crazy, some'd say 
where is the life that i recognise? 
gone away 

but i won't cry for yesterday 
there's an ordinary world 
somehow i have to find 
and as i try to make my way 
to the ordinary world 
i will learn to survive 

passion or coincidence 
once prompted you to say 
"pride will tear us both apart" 
well now pride's gone out the window 
cross the rooftops 
run away 
left me in the vacuum of my heart 

what is happening to me? 
crazy, some'd say 
where is my friend when i need you most? 
gone away 

but i won't cry for yesterday 
there's an ordinary world 
somehow i have to find 
and as i try to make my way 
to the ordinary world 
i will learn to survive 

papers in the roadside 
tell of suffering and greed 
here today, forgot tomorrow 
ooh, here besides the news 
of holy war and holy need 
ours is just a little sorrowed talk 

and i won't cry for yesterday 
there's an ordinary world 
somehow i have to find 
and as i try to make my way 
to the ordinary world 
i will learn to survive 

every one 
is my world, i will learn to survive 
any one 
is my world, i will learn to survive 
any one 
is my world 
every one 
is my world
