Listen to the song and complete the lyrics


Came in from a rainy Thursday
On the avenue
Thought I heard you softly

I turned on the , the TV
And the radio
Still I can't escape the ghost of you

What has happened to it all?
Crazy, some are
Where is the life that I recognize?
Gone away

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will to survive

Passion or coincidence
Once prompted you to say
"Pride will tear us both apart"
Well now pride's gone out the window
Cross the rooftops
away
Left me in the vacuum of my heart

What is happening to me?
Crazy, some'd say
Where is my friend when I you most?
Gone away

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will to survive

Papers in the roadside
Tell of suffering and greed
Here today, forgot tomorrow
Oh, here besides the
Of holy war and holy need
Ours is just a little sorrowed talk

And I don't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
Somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will to survive
