"Extraordinary" as written by Mandy Moore, Deborah R. Talan and Steve Tannen....
I was a daydream
Quiet and unseen
I lived in stories
But inside I kept a mystery
I was a starling
Nobody's darling
Flying in perfect circles
Just for company

And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready to be
Extraordinary

A midnight airplane
A window glowing
I know I am another sparkle in the sky
I shine uncovered
Still undiscovered
But you must see me
In the corner of your eye

And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready to be
Extraordinary

Waking up to week of sundays
I am my own parade
Stopping off at a sidewalk cafe
The wind is playing up in the trees
Kicking up confetti leaves
Seems as if it's all to say

And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready to be
Extraordinary

And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready
And now I'm ready to be
Extraordinary

    General CommentHere's what Mandy Moore says about this song: "There are times when everyone hits a point of wanting and knowing they can go beyond what they deem their limits to be. Personally, it took me a while to come to this conclusion and it was quite a bold move for me to make. I consider myself to be pretty shy and have trouble expressing myself in certain situations, so writing this song is one of the most honest, humble things I have ever done and said in my life. To anyone. It felt as good to sing it as it did to write it."

    General CommentCORRECT LYRICS:

    I was a bay tree
    Quiet and unseen
    I lived in stories but inside I kept a mystery
    I was a starling
    Nobody's darling
    Flying in perfect circles just for company
    And now I'm ready, and now I'm ready
    And now I'm ready to be extraordinary
    A midnight airplane
    A window glowing
    I know I am another sparkle in the sky
    I shine uncovered
    Still undiscovered
    But you might see me in the corner of your eye
    And now I'm ready, and now I'm ready
    And now I'm ready to be extraordinary
    Wakin' up to a wake on Sundays
    I am my own parade
    Stoppin' off at a sidewalk cafe
    Wind is playin' in the trees
    Kicking up confetti leaves
    Sings as if it's all to say
    And now I'm ready, yeah now I'm ready
    And now I'm ready to be extraordinary
    And now I'm ready, and now I'm ready
    And now I'm ready to be extraordinary
    Extraordinary
