Lyrics
Shelly's at the kitchen table, cup of coffee the morning paper
When he walks in she's so surprised to see the tears in his eyes
He says, "I love you, I'm so sorry, but bigger dreams are waiting for me
But I can't do this anymore

Pay the bills, watch TV, day in, day out the same routine
Mow the grass, fix the leak, just to fix it again
We go to church, go to work, so picture perfect that it hurts
I feel like I'm trapped inside this ordinary life"

Shelly's at the kitchen table, crayons, construction paper
"Hey Mom, look what I drew, it's a picture of me and you"
And later when he says his prayers, she runs her fingers through his hair
So thankful for every day

They pay their bills, watch TV, day in, day out, it's all they need
Mow the grass, fix the leak, just to fix it again
They go to church, go to school, everyday it's something new
Precious are the days as they go by in their ordinary life

Phone rings, he's calling from the airport
It's midnight, he's all alone again
He says, "I can't believe how much I've missed
And what I wouldn't give

To pay the bills, watch TV, day in, day out the same routine
Mow the grass, fix the leak, just to fix it again
Go to church, go to work, I can't tell you how this hurts
I miss my son, I miss my wife and my ordinary life"
