  • Lyrics
  • The sea wants to kiss the golden shore
    The sunlight warms your skin
    All the beauty that's been lost before wants to find us again

    I can't fight you any more, it's you I'm fighting for
    The sea throws rock together but time leaves us polished stones

    We can't fall any further if
    We can't feel ordinary love
    And we can't reach any higher,
    If we can't deal with ordinary love

    Birds fly high in the summer sky and rest on the breeze.
    The same wind will take care of you and I.
    We'll build our house in the trees.

    Your heart is on my sleeve
    Did you put it there with a magic marker?
    For years I would believe that the would couldn't wash it away

    'Cause we can't fall any further if
    We can't feel ordinary love
    And we can't reach any higher,
    If we can't deal with ordinary love

    Are we tough enough for ordinary love?

    We can't fall any further if
    We can't feel ordinary love
    And we can't reach any higher,
    If we can't deal with ordinary love

    We can't fall any further, if
    We can't feel ordinary love
    And we can't reach any higher,
    If we can't deal with ordinary loveWriter/s: ADAM CLAYTON, BRIAN JOSEPH BURTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL DAVID HEWSON
