Sometimes I get so weird
I even freak myself out
I laugh myself to sleep
It's my lullaby

Sometimes I drive so fast
Just to feel the danger
I wanna scream
It makes me feel alive

Is it enough to love?
Is it enough to breathe?
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please

To walk within the lines
Would make my life so boring
I want to know that I
Have been to the extreme

So knock me off my feet
Come on now give it to me
Anything to make me feel alive

Is it enough to love?
Is it enough to breathe?
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please.

Let down your defenses
Use no common sense
If you look you will see
That this world is this beautiful
Accident turbulent succulent
Opulent permanent
No way I wanna taste it
Don't wanna waste it away

Sometimes I get so weird
I even freak myself out
I laugh my self to sleep
It's my lullaby

Is it enough?
(Is it enough?)
Is it enough to breathe?
Somebody rip my heart out
And leave me here to bleed
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please

Is it enough?
Is it enough to die?
Somebody save my life
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please
Oh
I'd rather be anything but ordinary please.

    yea this is the best song of avril.. the deepest one.. and yes it's about a brokenhearted girl.. this is one of my fave songs caz it tells everything about me.. a girl who had her heart broken by some guy and it somewhat stopped her world, stopped living her life.. and suddenly she realizes that she's had enough, enough share of pain.. and that she shouldn't waste another minute of her life over a guy again.. there's more to life than just falling in love.. go out, live your life the fullest, and do something you're good at.. be something!

    "about a girl who's broken-hearted and has just realized that she's been missing a lot and that there is more to life than to dwell into the heartaches that she's going through. thus, she wants to take time in experiencing LIFE!!!"

    ...one of Avz's best songs, i must say!:-)

    Shouldn't I worry..."I'm normal", the song emplies... in a strange world that is stranger than "abnormal." She wants to change..convert/saved..:) God's Peace, Avril!! Take care all of you. ^_^
