"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

Carbon Leaf - Life Less Ordinary

Live a life less ordinary, live a life extraordinary with me.
Live a life less sedentary, live a life evolutionary with me.

Well I hate to be a bother, but it’s you and there’s no other, I do believe..
You can call me naive, but, I know me very well—at least as far as I can tell—and I know what I need.

The night you came into my life well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me…
You blew away my storm and strife and shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me..
By the way I do know why you stayed away.. I will keep tongue-tied next time..

Life a life less ordinary, live a life extraordinary with me.
My face had said too much before our hands could even touch to greet a hello… so much for going slow…
Well a little later on that year, I told you that I loved you, dear, what do you know …this you weren’t prepared to hear.

I’m a saddened man, I’m a broken boy, I’m a toddler with a complex toy.. I’m falling apart, since the outburst on your heart..

That night you came into my life well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me…
You blew away my storm and strife and shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me..
By the way I do know why you stayed away.. I will keep tongue-tied, but—
Honey understand…. honey understand… I won’t make demands.
Honey understand… honey understand… we could walk without a plan…
Honey understand—honey—honey understand, I won’t rest in stone, all alone…
Honey understand… honey understand, I’m all ready to go…
but you already know.

Live a life less ordinary, live a life extraordinary with me.
If I could name you in this song, would it make you smile and sing along?
This is the goal: to get into your soul.
If I could make you dance with joy, could that be the second chance decoy… the bird in hand, I would need, to help you understand?

That night you came into my life well it took the bones of me, took the bones of me…
You blew away my storm and strife and shook the bones of me, shook the bones of me..
By the way I do know why you stayed away.. I will keep tongue-tied next time.
