Ordinary Man

Album: Ordinary Man (2020)
  • I was unprepared for fame
    Then everybody knew my name
    No more lonely nights, it's all for you
    I have traveled many miles
    I've seen tears and I've seen smiles
    Just remember that it's all for you

    Don't forget me as the colors fade
    When the lights go down, it's just an empty stage
    Okay

    Yes, I've been a bad guy
    Been higher than the blue sky
    And the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man
    I've made momma cry
    Don't know why I'm still alive
    Yes, the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man

    Many times I've lost control
    They tried to kill my rock and roll
    Just remember I'm still here for you
    I don't wanna say goodbye
    When I do, you'll be alright
    After all, I did it all for you

    Don't forget me as the colors fade
    When the lights go down, it's just an empty stage
    Okay

    Yes, I've been a bad guy
    Been higher than the blue sky
    And the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man
    I've made momma cry
    Don't know why I'm still alive
    Yes, the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man

    Yes, I've been a bad guy
    Been higher than the blue sky
    And the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man
    I've made momma cry
    Don't know why I'm still alive
    Yes, the truth is I don't wanna die an ordinary man Writer/s: Ozzy Osbourne, Duff McKagan, Chad Smith, Billy Walsh, Andrew Wotman
