09. Ordinary World

Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)
by Red



 

Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue
I thought I heard You talking softly
I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio
And still I can't escape the ghost of You
What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some would say
Where is the life that I recognize?
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

Passion or coincidence once prompted You to say,
"Pride will tear us both apart"
Well now pride's gone out the window
'Cross the rooftops, run away
Left me in the vacuum of my heart
What has happened to me?
Crazy, some would say
Where is my friend when I need You most?
Gone away

What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some would say
Where is the world 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

Everyone is my world
I will learn to survive
Everyone, everyone
Somehow I have to find


Words & Music by Nicholas Bates, Warren Cuccurullo, Simon Le Bon and John Taylor

Behind the Song:
Accented heavily by piano and strings, this Duran Duran cover takes a decidedly RED direction, featuring a twisted fusion of dreamy orchestration and loud six-string distortion. “There’s just a dynamic and depth musically in ‘Ordinary World’ that is not present in most pop songs,” explains guitar player Anthony Armstrong. “Technically it’s a difficult song that challenges the pop formula. Lyrically, the song just fit the overall theme of Innocence & Instinct by its longing for a return to something more familiar, more secure, more ordinary.”
