Was this to show you
I would not fail you
Was that the reason you were lookin' back

So I'm trustin' in existence
I'm thrustin' on momentum
I don't wanna see these threads of love collide
Not ever again

No, not ever again
No'

I know it's not working
Knowledge will capture comfort one day
Our worlds will be worth more than living once in this lifetime

We could liberate today
We could alleviate tomorrow
But no one can reach the light switch
No one can reach the light switch, they say

No, that's what they say
No'

[Chorus]
My love'
This is no ordinary thing, my love
My love, my love'
This is no ordinary thing
No, it's just no ordinary thing

I'm naked, I'm naked in this afterlife
I was fallin', I was fallin' from the greatest highs
If everything, if everything should come to pass
Tell me when are you comin' home to stay
When are you comin' home to stay

Again to stay
Again'

'Cause my love'
This is no ordinary thing, my love
My love, my love'
This is no ordinary thing, no
No ordinary thing

We were compromised
By our own hearts
Jealous seas couldn't keep us apart
I wanted to touch you
But we stop when we start
I wanted to hold you, hold you
But here we are

Here we are'

[Instrumental]

This is no ordinary thing, my love
No ordinary thing, my love
No ordinary thing, my love
No ordinary thing, my love
My love'
My love'
This is no ordinary thing, my love
My love, my love'
This is no ordinary thing
No, this was no ordinary thing
