lyrics

(lyrics)

Would it complicate matters
If I missed your smile
My life is still the same
After all this while
Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting you

Could it be any sadder
When you hide your tears
Has nothing really changed
After all these years
Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting you

And you never had a clue
Or gave a second thought
Love can't find you where you are
That's not what you were taught
But you never take the chance
Always too much to lose
It's easier to make amends
And never have to choose

But I won't wait any longer
Just to feel your touch
I never ever guessed
It would mean this much

Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting
Waiting for the day, believing in the way
I'm wanting you
Ordinary days, ordinary ways
Of wanting you
Wanting you
Wanting you
