Ordinary Man (Orchestra Version) - Lyrics

Woke up this morning, just like every man does
I walked to the bathroom, just like every man does
Made my bed, just like every man must
I nursed my head, just like every man must

Spent the day playing Nina Simone
Reorganized every record I own
I see my friends, we drink beer in a can
Half-drunk they smile, "It'll be alright man"

Just like a king who's loosing his worth
I'm like a snob that's falling to Earth
Everyone thinks that I'm staying the same
Are they secretly happy that I am in pain?

So you say it's ordinary love
That's impossible to do
There's no such thing as ordinary love
I was ordinary just to you

Does it mean that I'm a regular man?
Not as special as I think that I am
As for you, all that I want to know
Did you stay up as I tumbled so low?

Just like a king who's loosing his worth
I'm like the Sun that's falling to Earth
Everyone thinks I'm staying the same
Are they secretly happy that I am in pain?

So you say it's ordinary love
That's impossible to do
No such thing as ordinary love
I was ordinary just to you

So you say it's ordinary love
But that's impossible to do
No such thing as ordinary love
I was ordinary just to you

Oh, if love was ordinary, oh so very ordinary
If life is ordinay, oh just so ordinary
If I was ordinary and our love was ordinary
Are you too?
