Ordinary Day – Vanessa Carlton

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 hes lookin’ for
and like a shooting star he shines, and he said

Take my hand
live while you can
though you feel dreams are right in the palm of your hand

and as he spoke, he spoke, ordinary words
though 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 time and he said

take my hand
live while you can
though you feel dreams are 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
was it all in my head?
did he ask 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
though you feel dreams are 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 tryin’ to get by
just a boy, just an ordinary boy, but
he was looking to the sky….
