ordinary day lyrics – vanessa carlton

“ordinary day”

just a day,
just an ordinary day.
just trying to get by.
just a boy,
just an ordinary boy.
but he was looking to the sky.
and as he asked if i would come along
i started to realize
that everyday he finds
just what he’s looking for,
like a shooting star he shines.

he said take my hand,
live while you can
don’t you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand

and as he spoke, he spoke ordinary words
although they did not feel
for i felt what i had not felt before
and you’d swear those words could heal.
and as i looked up into those eyes
his vision borrows mine.
and i know he’s no stranger,
for i feel i’ve held him for all of time.

and he said take my hand,
live while you can
don’t you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand
in the palm of your hand.

please come with me,
see what i see.
touch the stars for time will not flee.
time will not flee.
can you see?

just a dream, just an ordinary dream.
as i wake in bed
and the boy, that ordinary boy
or was it all in my head?
did he asked if i would come along
it all seemed so real.
but as i looked to the door,
i saw that boy standing there with a deal.

and he said take my hand,
live while you can,
don’t you see all your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand
in the palm of your hand,
in the palm of your hand.

just a day, just an ordinary day
just trying to get by.
just a boy,
just an ordinary boy.
but he was looking to the sky.
