Ordinary Me

Story Behind The Song

I started college at Berklee College of Music, and I was suddenly surrounded by other singer/songwriters for the first time in my life. Suddenly, I wasn't so unique or interesting anymore...but now I have learned that it's not the label of who you are but the work itself that defines you.

Lyrics

My life of mediocrity
Is nothing like it used to be.
I swear I've never felt this dull before,
And my life of total normalcy
Is getting sick and bored of me
For making everyday of it a chore,

And life just isn't right when everyday just stays the same,
No, nothing is too rushed when the pace of it won't change,
And I know what's to blame.

Hey inspiration!
Wait, don't turn your back and run.
I need your motivation
To let this ordinary me be done.

I'm vying for attention now,
But whining 'cause I don't know how
When standing out's a distant memory.
I'm tame unless I really try.
Hate to admit that I know I've
Become a simple, ordinary me.

Behaving like a raving lunatic could do the deed.
No, I still want something real to shake the boring out of me.
Yeah, I know what I need.

Hey inspiration!
Wait, don't turn your back and run.
I need your motivation
To let this ordinary me be done.

'Cause when it strikes, it's gonna be like lightning. You'll see...
And when it hits, you know I never resist it's calling.
I'm gonna let it mold me, mend me, bend me into something better,
So I can finally start to wave goodbye to
My life of mediocrity
Is sitting somewhat awkwardly
Between two major stages in my life.
I swear that something's coming soon.
Tell me so. Say I'm not doomed.
Say everything will revert back to fine.

And life just isn't right when everyday just stays the same,
No, nothing is too rushed when the pace of it won't change,
And I know what's to blame.

Hey inspiration!
Wait, don't turn your back and run.
I need your motivation
To let this ordinary me be done.
Hey inspiration!
Give me liberation.
Redeem imagination,
And let this ordinary me be done.
