Tonight’s tune is for the self-declared “ordinary girl” over at suckkss. I started following this blog the other day for its quality image content, and then to my surprise, I got a message from the blogger—she approved of the CI project’s intent. I don’t know if she wanted to be the next muse, but I always assume the best; so I interrogated for details about her life—the wonderful details in the lyrics of this song—and despite all these things, she still described herself as ordinary. Well, call yourself what you may; but if you’re ordinary, then ordinary’s just what I need. Enjoy and thanks for the inspiration! — K.C.
When we met, you were tapping your toe in brand new boots.
You told me you love the cold, and I wanted to touch your red lipstick.
I could tell you were strong and kind, cause you gave me a chance.
And I knew you were no Plain Jane,
but you said, “I’m an ordinary girl, just like the rest.”
But if you’re ordinary, then that’s just what I need.
I picked you up at your place and saw you smile in the mirror on your way out the door.
And we went for burgers and saw Breakfast at Tiffany’s at that drive-in theatre.
And as our first date ended, I felt you shudder when I kissed your forehead.
And I like that smile, even when it’s fake.
Good intentions are behind every word you say,
and now I intend to be good, too.
Whatever it takes to be with a girl like you.
