  • Live a life less ordinary.
    Live a life extraordinary with me.

    Live a life less sanitary.
    Live a life evolutionary with me.

    Well, I hate to be a bother,
    But it's you and there's no other, I do believe.
    You can call me naive,
    But I know me very well,
    At least as far as I can tell,
    And I know what I need.

    The night you came into my life
    Well, it took the bones of me
    Took the bones of me.
    You blew away my storm and strife
    And shook the bones of me
    Shook the bones of me.

    By the way,
    I do know why you stayed away.
    I will keep tongue tied next time.

    Live a life less ordinary.
    Live a life extraordinary with me.

    My face has said too much
    Before our hands could even touch
    To greet a hello.
    So much for going slow.

    A little later on that year
    I told you that I loved you, dear.
    What do you know?
    This, you weren't prepared to hear.

    I'm a saddened man.
    I'm a broken boy.
    I'm a toddler with a complex toy.
    I'm falling apart
    Since the outburst on your heart.

    The night you came into my life
    Well, it took the bones of me
    Took the bones of me.
    You blew away my storm and strife
    And shook the bones of me
    Shook the bones of me.

    By the way,
    I do know why you stayed away.
    I will keep tongue tied, but

    Honey, understand
    Honey, understand.

    I won't make demands.

    Honey, understand
    Honey, understand
    We could walk without a plan.

    Honey, understand
    Honey...
    Honey, understand
    I won't rest in stone,
    All alone.

    Honey, understand
    Honey, understand
    I'm all ready to go.

    But you already know.

    Live a life less ordinary.
    Live a life extraordinary with me.

    If I could name you in this song,
    Would it make you smile and sing along?

    This is the goal,
    To get into your soul.

    If I could make you dance for joy,
    Could that be the second chance to coy
    The bird in hand
    I would need
    To help you understand.

    The night you came into my life
    Well, it took the bones of me
    Took the bones of me.
    You blew away my storm and strife
    And shook the bones of me
    Shook the bones of me.

    By the way,
    I do know why you stayed away.
    I will keep tongue tied next time. Writer/s: BARRY THOMAS PRIVETT, CARTER GRAVATT, SCOTT ANDREW MILSTEAD, TERRELL H. CLARK
