  • 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 it all crazy some would 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 will 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 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 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
    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
