An Ordinary Life

Album: A Curious Thing (2010)
  • What makes you different from anyone in here
    What makes you stand up from the crowd
    What makes your mother so proud of you
    What makes us worship at your ground

    At night when you go to bed
    Do these thoughts run through your head
    When you're lying there all alone
    Do you think of us instead

    I don't know where I'll be in ten years time
    I want to be free
    I don't car about the cameras
    I don't care about the lights
    All I wanted was an ordinary life
    I don't know where I'll be in ten years time
    Where will the music take me
    I don't care the spotlight
    I don't care about the nights

    All I wanted was an ordinary life

    What makes you happy
    What makes you sad
    Do paparazzi drive you mad
    Do you miss your life back home
    Were they the best days that you had

    I don't know where I'll be in ten years time
    Where wil the music take me
    I don't care about the spotlight or the Hollywood nights
    All I wanted was an ordinary life Writer/s: AMY ELIZABETH MACDONALD
