Extraordinary (Mandy Moore)

I'm ready to be extraordinary.

I’m not much of a pop listener anymore, and I was never a fan of Mandy Moore (except for her duet with Jon Foreman in Someday We’ll Know), but this song is just so positive that I can’t help but keep it on repeat. :)


Mandy Moore
Album: Wild Hope

I was a bay tree
Quiet and unseen
I lived in stories but inside I kept a mystery
I was a starling
Nobody’s darling
Flying in perfect circles just for company

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be extraordinary

A midnight airplane
A window blowing
I know I am another sparkle in the sky
I shine on copper
Still undiscovered
But you might see me in the corner of your eye

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be extraordinary

Waking up to wake up someday
I am my own parade
Stopping off at a sidewalk cafe
Wind is playing in the trees
Kick up confetti leaves
Seems as if it’s all to say

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be extraordinary

And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready
And now I’m ready to be extraordinary

Listening to this song makes me smile and be positive and all. :) Hello, BFS. :)) I’m ready to be extraordinary. :)

Anyway, I’m turning in early tonight for a change, even if I don’t really have to be at work too early tomorrow because of a meeting I have tomorrow night. Seems like my “try something new” is starting already, as I was given the leadership position for a committee at work. Not that I mind; I was actually planning to volunteer if ever they need someone, but I wasn’t expecting it to be soon. Oh well. And I still have no questions for tomorrow’s meeting, hah. I should think of some tomorrow morning. :) That’s why I’m going to work early; I see. Heh.

Okay, time for bed. Good night world!

  1. Found you through the links of PinoyCentric. I love this song–it’s so positive, like “I can conquer the world” positive! Like you, I’m not big on Mandy Moore. She has another album (a previous one, all covers; the title escapes me) that I like though. There’s a song there, “Anticipation,” originally by Carly Simon, but I like Mandy’s version.
    Anyhow, just dropping by. Hello!

  2. Hi Karla! Yes, this song is just so positive, it lifts my mood up every time I hear it. :) And it helps me to be optimistic for this year.

    Thanks for dropping by!

  4. Hi Karen! :) My friend is watching Switchfoot on Malaysia too; he has a business trip there fro Feb 1-4, so it was just in time. I’m envious! Haha, I want to watch them again. :) I’m sure you’d enjoy their concert very much. :D Make sure you hang around after, maybe you’d see them in coffee shops around the place. :)
