Lyrics

Ordinary Dream

Written By: Jude Davison

A slow parade, the rain it fills my cup
The dullest ache, whenever I give up
Something torn and twisted
Unraveling the seam
Wakes me from this ordinary dream

A sad refrain, sorrows at the door
Lost again, I’m crawling on the floor
Something to fall into
Something to ease the pain
Wakes me from this ordinary dream

Everytime I think of you
Love rains down again
Filling up the heart that falls to pieces
Now I know it’s nothing new
How can I explain?
The beauty of this ordinary dream

Photographs, the strangers I’ve become
Hold me now, until our time is done
Fading from existence
Across the open plain
Into another ordinary dream

Fading from existence
Across the open plain
Into some other ordinary dream
