Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue
thought I heard you talking softly
I turned on the lights the TV and the radio
but still I can't escape the ghost of you

What is happening to me crazy some would say
Where is the life that I recognize, gone away
And I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world
somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Passion or coincidence once prompted you to stay
pride will tear us both apart
Well now pride's gone out the window
cross the rooftops runaway
Left me in this vaccuum of my heart

What is happening to me
crazy some will say
where is my friend when I need you most gone away
But I won't cry for yesterday
there's an ordinary world
somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world
I will learn to survive

Papers in the roadside tell of suffering and grief
Fear today forgot tomorrow
Hear the news of holy war and holy need
Our's is just a little sorrowed talk

And I won't cry for yesterday there's an ordinary world somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way to the ordinary world I will learn to survive
Every world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
Any world is my world, every world is our world, every world

    General CommentIt is a remake of a Duran Duran song and it is done really well. The original is so dull and slow and boring but his one is awesome!

    General CommentOkay, what kind of crack are you guys smoking, and where can I get some? This song blows ass compared to Duran Duran's version. The slow tempo and slight echo is what makes the original great, and Fenix TX let all of that go. Kudos to them for covering it, but let's face it, they screwed it up by making it too fast. I mean, come on, it's a freaking love song!
