Lyrics
Where can I find the city of shining light
In an ordinary world
How can I leave a buried treasure behind
In an ordinary world

The days into years roll by
It'��s where that I live until I die
Ordinary world

What would you wish if you saw a shooting star
In an ordinary world
I'��d walk to the end of the earth and afar
In an ordinary world

Baby I don'��t have much
But what we have is more than enough
Ordinary world

Where can I find the city of shining light
In an ordinary world
How can I leave a buried treasure behind
In an ordinary world

Baby I don'��t have much
But what we have is more than enough
Ordinary world
Song Meaning
"After all of the chaos that's on the album, whether it's pop culture or whatever new apps we're using, everything gets so complicated. At some point you want something simple. That's sort of what "Ordinary World" is about." - Billie Joe (Rolling Stone, Aug. 11, 2016)

"Armstrong wrote this ballad for his upcoming movie of the same name, where he stars as a failed rocker turned family man, after director Lee Kirk asked him for a poignant song that his character might've written. It took him a couple tries, but he ended up with a song so strong that he wanted it on Green Day's new album, as well. The final line gives the album a happy ending: 'Baby, I don't have much,' Armstrong sings over acoustic strumming and a gently chiming electric guitar, 'but what we have is more than enough/Ordinary world.'"
