How will I know if someone loves me
How will I know if there is no one else
Dying to have someone who loves me
But I want them to love me for myself
Looked for love in all the wrong places
I searched the moon and stars
Found myself lost in a world full of faces
The place I didn't look was my heart

I've been all around the world try to find something new,
Lord knows that something was you
'Cause I found in myself the one thing that is true
All I want is an ordinary girl
All I need is an ordinary girl

Chorus: Ordinary (2x)

I just want someone I can talk to
Someone I can lean on now and then
And I don't wanna lie, pretend I am someone else
I am just looking for a friend
My heart was going through so many changes,
I didn't know which way to turn
Just when I thought I had all of the answers
I found I still had so much to learn

I've been all around the world try to find something new,
Lord knows that something was you
'Cause I found in myself the one thing that is true
All I want is an ordinary girl
All I need is an ordinary girl

Chorus: Ordinary

Someone to love me

Chorus: Ordinary

I just wanna feel lost in love forever
Wanna see that look in your eyes
I hope that you understand what I am saying, baby
Cause girl I need you right by my side

I've been all around the world trying to find something new,
Lord knows that something was you
'Cause I found in myself
The one thing that is true
All I want is an ordinary girl
All I need is an ordinary girl

Chorus: Ordinary

Someone to love me

Chorus: Ordinary

Talking: You know I've been all around the world
Trying to find someone new
He, you know what ended up my search:
That someone was you
And I found in my heart there can be no one but you

All I need is an ordinary girl
Your love, my love
You know heaven send you from above
Oh girl, it is only you
You are the best thing in my life girl
You are the best thing in my life ooooooooh
Ooh girl...
