lyrics

Late night in the office
And your head among the bones
Of all the in-trays and the out-trays
Typewriters and telephones
And through a window, flickering
Below the neon signs
We are ordinary people
These are ordinary times

But hey, how did we get so lonely?
How did we get so blue?

Bird of prey descending
Over railway lines and towns
And my city skin is aching now
For country hand-me-downs
And the gutters become rivers
Under trees of pylon lines
We are ordinary people
These are ordinary times

But hey, how did we get so lonely?
How did we get so blue?

Airplanes are moaning
Carving ribbons in the blue
We watch the ghost ship of the morning
Drifting slowly into view
And the telephones start ringing
As the funeral bells chime
We are ordinary people
These are ordinary times

But hey, how did we get so lonely?
How did we get so blue?
