"Extraordinary Way" as written by Christopher Andrew Patrick Elliott, Nowell Rhys Fulber and Annie Decatur Danielewski....
What I have is nothing to my name
No property to speak of
And no trophy for my game
Intangible and worthless
My assets on the page
My coffers are empty
Any offer of safety has faded away
But what I have
What I have is

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God, I'm lucky, so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be
'Cause what I have (what I have)
Means so very little to this world
A promise that I kept and a bridge that I saved before it burned
The sacrifice that I made
Brought me to my knees
A choice that cost me everything and set somebody else free
But what I have
Is the value that you see in these things

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God I'm lucky, so much luckier than I ever thought I'd be
'Cause what I have
Is the value that you see in these things

And everytime I forget those things you bring them right back to me

With your patience
When I'm blinding mad
And your passion
When I'm really, really bad
And your eyes
Taking in everything I am
And your body and soul and the way that you know
How I treasure you

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

That makes me lucky
God I'm so lucky
So much luckier than I ever thought I'd be

On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You take what I can give and you treasure it
On an ordinary day
The extraordinary way
You turn to me and say, I believe in this

    General CommentSimply beautiful.

    It's about a girl with basically nothing to give to a relationship except for her love. No money, low income job and no security. And in return the guy loves her back for all that she is. That's what makes it extraordinary ;)

    My OpinionJust recently discovered this band, which is shocking for me, as I'm a big fan of Rhys's previous bands, Delerium and Front Line Assembly. Always been a fan of Poe as well, so getting to hear her sing again is a real treat. Anyways, I can't get enough of this song! Smooth, sensual, powerful - this song really connects with me.

    General CommentThis is the part i did not get:
    "a choice that cost me everything
    and set somebody else free"

    Is this somebody else the person he/she loves? Did he/she have to completely change the way of living to be with the partner?

    I also did not realize Rhys is behind this song. Very nice song. True love. In one previous relationship i could feel love this strong.
