Ordinary World
Duran Duran Lyrics


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

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

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

(Just blown away)

Papers in the roadside
Tell of suffering and greed
Fear today, forgot tomorrow
Ooh, here besides the news
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

And I don'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

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

In my opinion this is the best song Duran Duran ever did.

Gareth Hughes

Simon le bon sings confidently but I won't cry for yesterday but how many of us do just that cry for yesterday

Joseph mulvihill

In my opinion Duran Duran is the best group the 80's ever had.

Gareth Hughes

Without a doubt this is the best song duran duran ever produced passion or coincidence once prompted you to say pride will tear us both apart

Joe O'Malley

It's very introspective, thoughtful, and reflective. It's like they put everything together perfectly in this song.

Sid Pheasant

One of the best songs ANYBODY ever did! But I wonder if the lads even know how or why it is that, while much of what they did was great, this one was just SUBLIME, entirely transcending the ordinary, notwithstanding the title. The beloved Holy Sprit famously inspires (literally) creativity and guides us, allowing us to fuse our own talents with something greater beyond us. Surely in fact no coincidence that the lyrics here have fragments with "thought I heard you talking softly" + "light" + "can't escape the ghost" + "life ... gone away". We then find a close juxtaposition of "Passion" "tear apart" and even "Cross" and then "Where is my friend when I need you most? Gone away". Then "suffering and greed" "Here today, forgot tomorrow" + "holy war and holy need" and "sorrow".
