About the song

'Ordinary' represents the journey of a man who has a dream and dares to pursue it. Written from a mature perspective, the song brings out the realities that those we idolise have to go through, and the persistence we need to be more than ordinary.

When I was just a little boy from a little town

I made a wish that someday I could turn this around

I made believe that I was right on top of the world

 

And in my mind I saw the many valiant hearts

They held on to their dreams and never once fell apart

Like superheroes standing tall

they’re unbreakable

 

But beneath the moonlight you could see their hearts breaking down

The rise and fall of hope has never made a sound

 

CHORUS

Run, run, run

Far beyond the setting crimson sun

Never meant to be easy

When you’re trying to be

more than ordinary

 

Run, run, run

It’s not over till it’s said and done

Never meant to be easy

Just believe that you could be more than ordinary

And ten years later I found myself in front of a crowd

They look to me for hope to end their burning doubt

Within my hands I held on to their flames of desire

And their prayers guide me as I swim amongst the shooting stars

This little boy isn’t dreaming (and) he could see it now

 

CHORUS

Run, run, run

Far beyond the setting crimson sun

Never meant to be easy

When you’re trying to be

more than ordinary

 

Run, run, run

It’s not over till it’s said and done

Never meant to be easy

Just believe that you could be

more than ordinary

 

And now I tell my little boy from this little town

The road ahead is hard but you’ll find your way around

Someday you’ll wake up feeling like you’re on top of the world
