The verses are: C#m C#m  E E   B B 

C#m C#m
Came in from a rainy thursday
E E B B
on the avenue
C3m C3m E E B B
thought I heard you talking softly
C#m C#m
I turned on the lights, the tv
E E B B
and the radio
C#m C#m E E B B
still I can't escape the ghost of you

C#m C#m
What is happened to it all?
G#m G#m
Crazy, some say
B B E E
Where is the life that I recognize?
E E
gone away

B B F#m F#m
But I won't cry for yesterday
A A
there's an ordinary world
E E B B
somehow I have to find
B B F#m F#m
And as I try to make my way
A A
to the ordinary world
A A E E
I will learn to survive

(The rest of the song is the same as above!)

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, runaway
left me in the vacuum of my heart

What is happening to me?
Crazy, some 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
feared today, forgot tomorrow
ooh, here beside the news
of holy war and holy need
ours is just a little sorrowed talk

(Just blowing away)

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 world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
any world is my world
(I will learn to survive)
any world is my world
every world is my world

About this song

"Ordinary World" is the first single from Duran Duran's self-titled 1993 album, better known as The Wedding Album. The song peaked at No. 3 in the American charts and No. 6 in the British charts. By the early 90s, Duran Duran's popularity had faded. Their album Liberty had proved a commercial failure, its two singles failing to make a significant showing on British or American charts. It wasn't until Capitol leaked "Ordinary World" to a radio station in Florida in the autumn of 1992 that it looked like Duran Duran mania might yet hit again.
