Aurora: "Ordinary World" is a single by Aurora, released on 11 September 2000 by Positiva Records.

About the song[]

The single is a dance version of Duran Duran's song "Ordinary World" by the British electronic dance music group Aurora, which featured Naimee Colman on vocals with keyboard/guitar Sacha Collisson and fellow keyboardist Simon Greenaway. Aurora made their debut in 1999 with "Hear You Calling" but only really hit the big time when their second single "Ordinary World" peaked at number 5 in the UK chart. Building on that success, they went on to record their eponymous debut album, straying away from the trance and dance genres they'd used for the singles.

The following year in 2001 Naimee released the single "My Star", which featured an acoustic version of "Ordinary World".

Lyrics[]

Came in from a rainy Thursday on the avenue
 

Thought I heard you talking softly
 
 
I turned on the lights, the TV and the radio
 
 
Still I can't escape the ghost of you


 
What has happened to it all?


 
Crazy, some'd say

 

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 learn 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, run away




Left me in the vacuum of my heart







What is happening to me?


  

Crazy, some'd say

 

Where is my friend when I need 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 learn to survive


 

Papers in the roadside

 

Tell of suffering and greed




Here today, forgot tomorrow




Ooh, here besides the news




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 learn to survive







Every one is my world, I will learn to survive




Any one is my world, I will learn to survive




Any one is my world




Every one is my world
