Ordinary Love - U2

www.last.fm
by Matthew Whalen


The Experience: We can't fall any further or reach any higher if we can't feel ordinary love. U2 is back, serenading the new Mandela movie with a message they know well...


Lyrics Video: U2 just recently (November 21st) posted this lyrics video with the full lyrics of the song on their website.

My Take: The words have changed from the sneak preview, but the meaning is the same and better expressed. True, we can't fall any farther, if we don't risk loving, but we cannot reach any higher either.  We all need at least ordinary love, and sometimes that's all that's needed. But are even we tough enough for ordinary love?


Ask Yourself: How much am I willing to love?  


LYRICS:


The sea wants to kiss the golden shore
The sunlight warms your skin
All the beauty that's been lost before
Wants to find us again

I can't fight you anymore
It's you I'm fighting for
The sea throws rock together
But time leaves us polished stones

We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love

Birds fly high in the summer sky
And rest on the breeze
The same wind will take care of you and
I will build our house in the trees

Your heart is on my sleeve
Did you put it there with a magic marker
For years I would believe
That the world couldn't wash it away

'Cause we can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love

Are we tough enough
For ordinary love

We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love

We can't fall any further
If we can't feel ordinary love
We cannot reach any higher
If we can't deal with ordinary love
