Ordinary Dream

This song is by Electric Light Orchestra and appears on the album Zoom (2001).

I couldn't really understand at all
The writing on the wall
From you to me.

A jigsaw puzzle of a twisted tale
That set its lonely sail
From you to me.

'Cause I tried to get the message
But it's not understood
Wide apart and so far away
It mattered at the start until I realised instead...

I'm flying in a troubled sky
Watching you as you go by
In an ordinary dream.

I'm sailing on a troubled sea
Watching you as you watch me
In an ordinary dream.

I couldn't understand a word it said
The letter that I read
From you to me.

I couldn't fathom out the stuff you wrote
So I guess it's just a joke
From you to me.

Though reality keeps calling me away from my dream
And the wreckage isn't all it might have been
Didn't matter at the start, until I realised it did.

I'm flying in a troubled sky
Watching you as you go by
In an ordinary dream.

I'm sailing on a troubled sea
Watching you as you watch me
In an ordinary dream.

I'm floating in a troubled sky
Watching you as you go by
In an ordinary dream.

I'm sailing on a troubled sea
Watching you as you watch me
In an ordinary dream
Ordinary dream
Ordinary dream.
