Vanessa Carlton Ordinary Day Lyrics

Last updated: 01/05/2014 04:03:21 PM

Just a day,
Just an ordinary day.
Just trying to get by.
Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking to the sky.
And as he asked if I would come along
I started to realize
That everyday he finds
Just what he's looking for,
Like a shooting star he shines.

And He said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don't you feel your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand

And as he spoke, he spoke ordinary words
Although they did not feel
For I felt what I had not felt before
And you'd swear those words couldn't heal.
And as I looked up into those eyes
His vision borrows mine.
And I know he's no stranger,
For I feel I've held him for all of time.

And he said take my hand,
Live while you can
Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand
In the palm of your hand.

Please come with me,
See what I see.
Touch the stars for time will not flee.
Time will not flee.
Can you see?

Just a dream, just an ordinary dream.
As I wake in bed
And the boy, that ordinary boy
Or was it all in my head?
Did he asked if I would come along
It all seemed so real.
But as I looked to the door,
I saw that boy standing there with a deal.

And he said take my hand,
Live while you can,
Don't you see all your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand
In the palm of your hand,
In the palm of your hand.

Just a day, just an ordinary day
Just trying to get by.
Just a boy,
Just an ordinary boy.
But he was looking to the sky.

Beautiful Music | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/25/10

This is such an uplifting song. I am singing it for a talent show and I bought the background track to practice with, and I've been listening to just the music! It's so beautiful; I have to learn how to play it on piano.

Hearing This Song in A Whole Different Way | Reviewer: 1luvbaby | 5/29/09

I've heard this song before and felt it's spirituality and sensed a Christian undertone in a way that applies to everyday life. Now that I know the words to this one, I'm going to download it to listen to it for an uplifting experience whenever I begin to lose sight of my dreams in the everyday hussle and grind. See, this is the kind of music that says "I am with you"...even on our ordinary days.

Awesome | Reviewer: Jules James | 11/17/06

This song is so inspirational to so many women these days. It talks about the mystery and light of life itself, with a touch of uncertainty and hope. I hope that a lot of girls listen to the song and also hear these lyrics. It inspires the very existance of some people, and more should feel that. A big shout out to Vanessa Carlton. You really have a hit!
