"Extraordinary" as written by Lauren Christy, Graham Edwards, Scott Spock and Elizabeth Clark Phair....
You think that I go home at night
Take off my clothes, turn out the lights
But I burn letters that I write
To you, to make you love me
But I drive naked through the park
And run the stop sign in the dark
Stand in the street, yell out my heart
To make, to make you love me
I am extraordinary
If you'd ever get to know me

I am extraordinary
I am just your ordinary, average, everyday, sane, psycho, supergoddess

You may not believe in me
But I believe in you
So I still take the trash out
Does that make you too normal for you?
So dig a little deeper, cause
You still don't get it yet
See me lickin' my lips, need a primitive fix
And I'll make, I'll make you love me
I am extraordinary
If you'd ever get to know me

I am extraordinary
I am just your ordinary, average, everyday, sane, psycho, supergoddess

See me jump through hoops for you
You stand there watching me performing
What exactly do you do?
Have you ever thought it's you that's boring?
Who the hell are you?

I am extraordinary
I am just your ordinary, average, everyday, sane, psycho, supergoddess

    General CommentLiz phair got a lot of of unfair criticism for this song and album. It's pop music, that doesn't mean it's crap. And she has the right to change her style. And I think she pulled it off. And she didn't sell out. The edginess and the clever lyrics are still there. Just read the lyrics to this song. That's top notch stuff.

    General CommentI love this song. I'm still chuckling over the visual of the guy driving naked and then getting out in public to profess his love. Talk about a modern day Romeo! I'd jump him on spot :)

    General Comment"i am extraordinary if you'd ever get to know me"
    this is my favorite line. sometimes people judge each other prematurely without being able to appreciate the good qualities they have. in my case, i'm really shy so not many people get to know the real me. i love the optimism in it in that line.

    General Commenti think everyone knows how it feels to be wanting to impress somebody, for whatever reason and theyre just not buying it, you think, hey screw you you dont know me!

    ''I'll make you love me!'' - I love the way she sings that line.
