Duran Duran

Ordinary World

Lyrics

playCame in from a rainy Thursday
playOn the avenue
playThought I heard you talking softly

playI turned on the lights, the TV
playAnd the radio
playStill I can't escape the ghost of you

playWhat has happened to it all?
playCrazy, some are saying
playWhere is the life that I recognize?
playGone away

playBut I won't cry for yesterday
playThere's an ordinary world
playSomehow I have to find
playAnd as I try to make my way
playTo the ordinary world
playI will learn to survive

playPassion or coincidence
playOnce prompted you to say
play"Pride will tear us both apart"
playWell now pride's gone out the window
playCross the rooftops
playRun away
playLeft me in the vacuum of my heart

playWhat is happening to me?
playCrazy, some'd say
playWhere is my friend when I need you most?
playGone away

playBut I won't cry for yesterday
playThere's an ordinary world
playSomehow I have to find
playAnd as I try to make my way
playTo the ordinary world
playI will learn to survive

playPapers in the roadside
playTell of suffering and greed
playHere today, forgot tomorrow
playOoh, here besides the news
playOf holy war and holy need
playOurs is just a little sorrowed talk

playAnd I don't cry for yesterday
playThere's an ordinary world
playSomehow I have to find
playAnd as I try to make my way
playTo the ordinary world
playI will learn to survive

playEvery one
playIs my world, I will learn to survive
playAny one
playIs my world, I will learn to survive
playAny one
playIs my world
playEvery one
playIs my world
