Bobby Darin

Average People

 


 

 

      Oh ... we used to laugh a lot

            Livin' each day as it came

            No ... we didn't have a lot

            Just love and time

            But, I guess that's all behind us now.

 

            I sit before the TV screen

            Silently starin' into space

            While you re-read your magazines

            And the bottom is painted

            All over our faces.

 

            Tell me ... when did we become such average people

            And, when did love become an everyday thing

            Life was so much fun

            When we were livin' together

            But as soon as we put on the rings ...

            Everything changed.

 

            What a lovely memory

            All those tender nights we knew

            When I held you so close to me

            We seemed like one

            But, I guess that's over and done.

 

            'cause now we simply say, "Goodnight"

            And then we turn our separate ways

            Dream of what it could be like

            With somebody else

            Takin' each other's place.

 

            Tell me ... when did we become such average people

            And, when did love become an everyday thing

            Life was so much fun

            When we were livin' together

            But as soon as we put on the rings ...

            Everything changed ... ... ...

 

            Tell me ... when did we become such average people

            And, when did love become an everyday thing ...
