I've been wasting my days
Good and reckless and true
I have danced in the dark at the edge of the water
Swinging my hips at the black and the blue

When you die will you be surrounded by friends?
Will they pray for a heaven out loud
a hope that somehow they will see you again?
And at the end of the day, knowing not what it means
Will you stand in the ashes, building a glame for the rest of your dreams?

Would you love
Could you love to be ordinary?
I know its hard but I can't see you trying
Would you love
Could you love to be ordinary?
'Cause I can't see you trying now

And I see strangers at war
I see strangers at peace
Still I hang my head in confusion
It's always been a choice that's been harder for me

And at the end of the day, knowing not what it means
Will you stand in the ashes, building a flame for the rest of your dreams?

Would you love
Could you love to be ordinary?
I know it's hard but I can't see you trying, Would you love
Could you love to be ordinary?
No I can't see you trying now

There's nobody left to hear me
I wish you could hear me now
There's nobody left to call because you're not around

Would you love
Could you love to be ordinary?
I know it's hard but I can't see you trying And would you love
Could you love to be ordinary?
I know it's hard but I can't see you trying

When you die will you be surrounded by friends?
Will they pray for a heaven out loud, a hope that somehow they will see you again?

    My OpinionThis is a beautiful song. To me it speaks about the beauty of life and choosing an ordinary life and loving it for all it is. Its about asking our loved ones to be ordinary even if they can't hear you.
