Here I stand,
Nothing more than a broken man
Staring death in the face.
All my mistakes have got a hold on me again.

Here we go,
Another day, another fork in the road.
I never know who to trust,
Will someone just tell me which way to go?

I need a sign, I need a miracle!
I need to know that this is possible.
I've just failed so many times,
Is there any way that I could make it right?

God, if you're there I need to hear you now!

Come back to me love, I forgive you.
Oh, how I've missed you!
Just know every time you run I'll be right here waiting!
Yeah!

This is no ordinary love.
Listen up, listen up!
This is no ordinary love.
Listen up, this is unconditional!

I'm so afraid to admit that you're real,
Cause I'm afraid of what I might feel.
When your words start to come to life
And it brings my demons into the light,
But I know you're here.
I shiver as you whisper in my ear,
"Child, have no fear".

Come back to me love, I forgive you.
Oh, how I've missed you!
Just know every time you run I'll be right here waiting!
Come back to me love.
I hope you know I'm always with you.
Oh, I forgive you!

We lose faith in things unseen,
Unsure of what to believe,
Just dying to be loved,
When love's right in front of us.

We give up on our hopes and dreams,
And let doubt take everything.
The door will open when we realize we don't hold the key!
I tried to save myself but I failed!
But I failed!

Come back to me love, I forgive you.
Oh, how I've missed you! (I've missed you so!)
Every time you run I'll be right here waiting!
Come back to me love,
I hope you know I'm always with you.
I forgive you!

    General CommentThe meaning of the song “No Ordinary Love” can be easily interpreted because of it’s literary devices and the repetitive dialogue-type format used. An attentive listener will say that the song is about the relationship between a human and God. The lyrics show the sinful nature of humans and the forgiveness of God. It can be assumed that the song is about the Christian God from the way that He is mentioned. Since this genre is comprised of both screaming and singing, the author of the song takes advantage of that for the purpose of making the theme more clear. These tonal methods are loosely attached to two separate characters in the story line. With some changes of speaker, the voice of the sinner is portrayed with screaming to show the savagery of humanity. With shifts towards the voice of God in chorus, the most charismatic sounds of singing are placed to show loving forgiveness, which is a staple in the mood here. Besides the methods of sound emission, the author also uses rhyme in one section to add to the musical effect. The most rhythmic line goes, “But I know you’re here. I shiver as you whisper in my ear, ‘Child, have no fear’”. This isn't the key line of the song, but it’s still significant. Literary techniques are spread to places where the author wishes to convey the most meaning, including here. The key line is, “Just know every time you run I’ll be right here waiting!” This part is an amalgamation of the entire song’s overall message of forgiveness and patience. The most prominent literary device factored into this song is parallelism, as it is with many other songs of this genre as well. This can be seen in pretty much any of the verses because of it’s frequency. The musicians create a strong story with a normal amount of mainstream literary devices. Altogether, this song is directed towards Christian beliefs with many elements of metalcore music used to enhance the overall mood.
