The Name

The inspiration for the name, Ordinary Dreams, comes from the lyrics of It Is Time by November Project, in the album A Thousand Days (1999). Lyricist Julie Flanders.

Looking back on whatever is done
Scattering ashes into the sun
Let the past go into a free fall
Crash of ages, rock of the tide
Back and forth in waves of goodbye
Leave your grieving on the sea wall

 

After all this time
And if you want
You could cry forever
Waiting for a sign
It is time
It is time

 

Nothing to fear but nothing itself
Flying higher than anyone else
Tear a thread from the silver lining
Fear and hunger, fire and thirst
Touch a cloud and allow it to burst
Rain or sun, you’ll still be shining

 

After all this time
And if you want
You can cry forever
Waiting for a sign
It is time
It is time

 

Can you find the courage
For ordinary dreams
And ordinary promises
Give another meaning
To what you are afraid of
What are you afraid of?

 

Looking back on whatever is true
Finding out what you already knew
You can finally stop pretending
Breathe your secrets into the wind
Let the answers come from within
On your way to a different ending

 

After all this time
And if you want
You could cry forever
Waiting for a sign
It is time
It is time

 

After all this time
And if you want
You could cry forever
Waiting for a sign
It is time
It is time
