Paul Anka – Ordinary World lyrics

[Originally by Duran Duran]

Came in from a rainy Thursday
On the avenue
Thought I heard you talking softly
I turned on the lights, the tv
And the radio
Still I can't escape the ghost of you

What has happened to it all?
Crazy some say
Where is the life that I recognize?
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

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 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 greed
Feared today forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here beside the news
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

(Blown away)
(Just blowing away)

And I don'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

Any world is my world
(I will learn to survive)

Every world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
