Lyric discussion by KinksFan 

It's about losing someone and learning to cope. When you have someone in your life who is your everything, your world is special; it's wonderful; it's Nirvana. When that person leaves or is taken from you, your world is no longer wonderful or special. It's just "ordinary". This song is about learning to deal with a new life, a new world that is ordinary and making the resolution that "I will survive".

@KinksFan Loved your interpretation of the song

@KinksFan I understood when he refers to an "ordinary world" he means the way used to be before the person left.
