Lyrics

I fear that I am ordinary, just like everyone.
To lie here and die among the sorrows,
Adrift among the days.

For everything I ever said and everything I've ever done is gone and dead.

As all things must surely have to end.
The great loves will one day have to part;
I know that I am meant for this world.

My life has been extraordinary, blessed and cursed and won.
Time heals but I'm forever broken,
By and by the way:
Have you ever heard the words I'm singing in these songs?
It's for the girl I've loved all along.
Can a taste of love be so wrong?

As all things must surely have to end.
The great loves will one day have to part;
I know that I am meant for this world.

And in my mind as I was floating, far above the clouds.
Some children laughed I'd fall for certain for thinking that I'd last forever.

But I knew exactly where I was.
And I knew the meaning of it all.
And I knew the distance to the sun.
And I knew the echo that is love.

And I knew the secrets in your spires.
And I knew the emptiness of youth.
And I knew the solitude of heart.
And I knew the murmurs of the soul.

And the world is drawn into your hands.
And the world is etched upon your heart.
And the world so hard to understand.
In the world you can't live without.

And I knew the silence of the world.
