"Ordinary World" by Duran Duran


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 is happened to it all?

Crazy, some'd say

Where is the life that I recognize?

gone away



But I won't cry for yesterday

there's an ordinary world

somehow I have survived

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 survived

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

fear today, forgot tomorrow

ooh, here besides the news

of holy war and holy need

ours is just a little sorrow

a'tall



And I don'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
