  • Come on, can I dream for one day?
    There's nothing that can't be done
    But how long should it take somebody
    Before they can be someone

    'Cause I know there's got to be another level
    Somewhere closer to the other side
    And I'm feelin' like it's now or never
    Can I break the spell of the typical?

    Now I've lived through my share of misfortune
    And I've worked in the blazing sun
    But how long should it take somebody
    Before they can be someone

    'Cause I know there's got to be another level
    Somewhere closer to the other side
    And I'm feelin' like it's now or never
    Can I break the spell of the typical?
    Typical, typical, typical

    I'm the typical
    I'm the typical
    Can I break the spell of the typical?

    Because it's draggin' me down
    Oh, I'd like to know about when
    When does it all turn around?

    Yeah I know there's got to be another level
    Somewhere closer to the other side
    And I'm feelin' like it's now or never
    Can I break the spell of the typical?
    Typical, typical, typical

    Break the spell (of the typical)
    Break the spell (of the typical)
    I'm the typical! Writer/s: PAUL MEANY
