"Ordinary Day" as written by Tony W. Wood and Ginny Owens....
This is just an ordinary day
Wipe the insecurities away
I can see that the darkness will erode
Looking out the corner of my eye
I can see that the sunshine will explode
Far across the desert in the sky

Beautiful girl
Won't you be my inspiration?
Beautiful girl
Don't you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us?
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I'll never let you down
Won't let you down

This is the beginning of your day
Life is more intricate than it seems
Always be yourself along the way
Living through the spirit of your dreams

Beautiful girl
Won't you be my inspiration?
Beautiful girl
Don't you throw your love around
What in the world, what in the world
Could ever come between us?
Beautiful girl, beautiful girl
I'll never let you down
Won't let you down
Down, down

    General CommentAbigail, perhaps she is speaking to her "child" self or a younger self, a lot of people have expectations of themselves when they are younger, dreams, etc. and maybe she is just telling "herself" to "Always be yourself along the way/Living through the spirit of your dreams" and that she won't let her down. And despite the years between them, she asks "what is the world could ever come between us?" I may be totally off the mark, but that is how I interpreted the song when I first heard it.

    General CommentHey , Dolores from Cranberries going solo? Man, i really loved her.I like her new look though. Nice song by the way. Anyway, i was thinking the lil red gal in the video was her daughter.Turns out its dedicated toher new infant.
    And what about the Angry pissed of teen in the video.Screaming and swearing.Does that reflect her other self? and maybe she want "inspiration" from the litlle girl....
