Ordinary World - Red

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 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 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 has happened 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

What has happened to it all?
Crazy some say
Where is the world 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

Any world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
Every word
Every word is somehow
(Somehow I have survived)
