The sea wants to kiss the golden shore
The sunlight warms your skin
All the beauty that's been lost before wants to find us again

I can't fight you any more, it's you I'm fighting for
The sea throws rock together but time leaves us polished stones

We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
And we can't reach any higher,
If we can't deal with ordinary love

Birds fly high in the summer sky and rest on the breeze.
The same wind will take care of you and I.
We'll build our house in the trees.

Your heart is on my sleeve
Did you put it there with a magic marker?
For years I would believe that the would couldn't wash it away

'Cause

We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
And we can't reach any higher

Are we tough enough for ordinary love?

We can't fall any further, if
We can't feel ordinary love
And we can't reach any higher,
If we can't deal with ordinary love

    This song is about the long history of the apartheid, where has been so much wager in all the past years. Cuase people were not living in harmony. People didn't care about other lives. Whats the meaning and quality of life if you can't have simple and plain ordinary love for each other.
