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 would 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 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 state
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 would 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
Ooh yeah yeah
Ooh
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
Just gone away
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
Any one
Is my world
Any one
Is my world
Every one
Is my world
