About This Album

Lyrics

  • Ordinary World (Single Version)

    [Verse 1: Simon Le Bon]
    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

    [Pre-Chorus 1: Simon Le Bon]
    What has happened to it all?
    Crazy, some'd say
    Where is the life that I recognize?
    (Gone away)

    [Chorus: Simon Le Bon]
    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

    [Verse 2: Simon Le Bon]
    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

    [Pre-Chorus 2: Simon Le Bon]
    What is happening to me?
    Crazy, some'd say
    Where is my friend when I need you most?
    (Gone away)

    [Chorus: Simon Le Bon]
    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

    [Interlude: Simon Le Bon]
    Just blown away

    [Bridge: Simon Le Bon]
    Papers in the roadside
    Tell of suffering and greed
    Fear today, forgot tomorrow
    Ooh, here beside the news
    Of holy war and holy need
    Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

    [Chorus: Simon Le Bon]
    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

    [Outro: Simon Le Bon]
    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

  • [Verse 1]
    Once I thought that I was in control
    But that was just another trick of fate
    Playing with my life
    There have been some times
    I was so tied up
    And I said to myself
    Gotta break it all
    But didn't really try

    [Chorus]
    Two hearts beating in this place you've made
    You know nothing changes my Antarctica

    [Verse 2]
    You can make your rhymes
    And paint your rules
    In black and white
    For me to memorize
    But never understand
    And there will be time
    For a thousand vows
    Oh a thousand promises
    We forgot
    To be realized

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    We'll keep the rhythm going
    And we'll remember
    We'll keep the laughter flowing
    And we'll remember
    We let the music jangle
    And we'll remember

    [Chorus]

    [Outro]
    And you
    Will stay here
    With me
