Duran Duran - Ordinary World

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’d say,
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away...

[Chorus:]
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, run away,
Left me in the vacuum of my heart.
What is happening to me?
Crazy, some’d say,
Where is my friend when I need you most?
Gone away...

[Chorus]

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and greed
Here today, forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here besides the news of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk
Just blown away...

[Chorus]

Every world, is my world...
I will learn to survive
Any world, is my world...
I will learn to survive

Any world, is my world...
Every world is my world...

Is it just me or is this song soooo not a typical duran duran creation

You are absolutely right! This really doesn't fit their anthology at all. I still love the song nonetheless. :-D
