ordinary day - vanessa carlton


just a day, just an ordinary day
just tryin' to get by
just a boy, just an ordinary boy
but he was looking to the sky

& as he asked if i would come along
i started to realize
that everyday you find
just what he's looking for
like a shooting star he shines

he said take my hand, live while you can
don't you see your dreams are right
in the palm of your hand

& as he spoke, he spoke ordinary words
although they did not feel
for i felt what i had not felt before
You'd swear those words could heal

& as i looked up into those eyes
his vision borrows mine
& to know he's no stranger
for I feel i've held him for all of time

& he said take my hand, live while you can
don't you see your dreams are right
in the palm of your hand
right in the palm of your hand

please come with me, see what i see
touch the stars for time will not flee
time will not flee, can you be

just a dream, just an ordinary dream
as I wake in bed
& the boy, that boy, that ordinary boy
or was it all in my head?

did he ask if i would come along
it all seemed so real
but as i looked to the door
i saw that boy standing there with a deal

&he said he my take my hand, live while you can
don't you see your dreams are right
in the palm of your hand
right in the palm of your hand
right in the palm of your hand

just a day, just an ordinary day
just tryin' to get by
just a boy, just an ordinary boy
but he was looking to the sky
