lyrics

Wake up, twist the dial
Company for a while
Need more sleep before I walk my miles
What do I do?
Rhetorical question
Treading this life of circumnavigation
Oh, Lord, help me bear this hibernation
If something doesn't happen soon

I may just be ordinary
Just like me
Just like you
Just like me
Just like everybody

Talk to me -- see me shine
Love me -- I don't mind
Can't you see my future
And how far I'm behind?
Look in this crystal song and see

If I will be ordinary
Just like me
Just like you
Just like me
Just like everybody

Walk with me among the yellow trees
Hold me, I'll shield you from the cold November breeze
Promise me you won't leave
Trade my future fortune for you and me
Oh, girl, let me hold your horses

We will be ordinary
We will be --
You and me -- ordinary
Extraordinary
