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 is happening to it all?
Crazy some 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 me 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.

[Chorus]

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and greed,
Feared today; forgot tomorrow.
Here beside the news of holy war and holy need,
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk-
Blown away.

Just blowing away.

[Chorus]

Any world is my world
Every world is my world

This song makes me cry in concert. Brings up lots of memories of Mom.

Why does it remind you of her?

It's about losing someone, and it has to do with the speech that Simon gives before the song. Just makes me cry.
