Still a bit raw, means a lot to me


In this ordinary life what extraordinary things
Do you recall or can you count upon your fingers
When you add them 1, 2, 3, are you surprised at all to find
So many memories where you wanted time to linger
Magic moments floating by far too quickly so it seems
But etching firmly in some safe place
And as you remember all it washes over wave by wave, by wave

In this ordinary life so many people come and go
Will you remember them when you have grown much older
Children that you played with in your backyard happily
Do their faces come to mind when memory’s colder
And buddies in your college days when you were campus kings and queens
And days were dull but nights were grand
Names and faces flashing true but nothing you can hold in your hand in your hand

Ordinary life, ordinary people
Extraordinary gift to us all
Ordinary life, ordinary days
The pieces of a puzzle beautiful

In this ordinary life days fly by no standing still
Each of us must write the words and sing our song
Fully living fully loving having something to believe
And make it better for the next to come along
When we leave this place behind who will know, who will care
If we leave it as we found it
Only if we take this ordinary life and wrap our arms around it, around it
Wrap our arms around it
Wrap our arms around it
And wrap our arms around it
