Lyrics Day Seventy Seven – ‘Normality 2.0’

Hey everyone,

today’s lyrics have nothing to do with yesterdays, despite having similar titles. Actually, I just got to thinking of the meaning of the word ‘normal’, and how it can be so abstract and subjective – essentially, normality changes for everybody, based on their circumstances. And, whilst we can engage in routines, every single person is unique, so there’s no way of expressing what ‘normal’ is. In that sense, the word almost seems meaningless. Anyway, here are some thoughts on normality.

Stay safe ~

Normality 2 (Verse, Half Chorus, Verse, Chorus, Bridge, Chorus)

What is normality?
Asked myself that question
the answer of course
depends on your perception

 
In every single person
their experience is unique
so ‘normality’ as a term
is nothing but oblique

Even a shared moment
is experienced differently
two sets of eyes
perceptions shaped by their history

 
In every single person
their experience is unique
so ‘normality’ as a term
is nothing but oblique
Routines can be established
loved ones become a constant
but naming something ‘normal’
makes it less poignant

I’ve lived beside friends
for years at University
from the second our eyes opened
our paths altered drastically
the same pavement led
from building to building
but perspectives differ
the definition needs rekindling

 
In every single person
their experience is unique
so ‘normality’ as a term
is nothing but oblique
Routines can be established
loved ones become a constant
but naming something ‘normal’
makes it less poignant
