Ordinary World - Kurt Nilsen

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
but still I can't escape the ghost of you

What is happening to me
crazy some say
Where is the life that I recognize (gone away)

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

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 runaway
Left me in the vacuum of my heart

What is happening to me
crazy some 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 grief
Fear today forgot tomorrow
o-oh, Here beside the news of holy war and holy need
Our's is just a little sorrowed talk (just blown away)

And I won't cry?

Every world is my world (I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world (I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world, every world is our world, every world
