Ordinary Lives (Song 22 of 50)

31 Aug

This is one of my songskirmish songs…I love songskirmishes (:  A songskirmish is when somebody gives out a title, and everyone has to write a song with that title within one hour.  It’s really cool to see how many different ways people interpret the same title.

What are we waiting for?
There’s nothing left to lose
We could be so much more
If we’d only try to
Take a risk, make a choice
Lift our hands, raise our voice
We can run, we can jump, we can fly
With our ordinary lives

You say you want to make a difference
But you’re just another life
And you can’t believe it’s even worth a try
What difference can you make
When the world seems too big to change
And you already have to fight for your own life

But remember you’re not in this on your own
You don’t have to try to make it all alone

What are we waiting for?
There’s nothing left to lose
We could be so much more
If we’d only try to
Take a risk, make a choice
Lift our hands, raise our voice
We can run, we can jump, we can fly
With our ordinary lives

What are we waiting for?
There’s nothing left to lose
We could be so much more
If we’d only try to
Take a risk, make a choice
Lift our hands, raise our voice
We can run, we can jump, we can fly
With our ordinary lives
