Meaning Behind the Song

Written by Connie Harrington and Bonnie Baker, “Ordinary Life” is a song that talks about the repetitive and mundane lifestyle of married couples. Stuck in a routine, the husband shows dissatisfaction with living their ordinary life. 

Paying the bills, watching TV, and fixing household problems seem monotonous to him, so he then decides to leave to pursue his dreams wanting a more adventurous life.

Simply put, “Ordinary Life” is about regret and not being content with what you have. This song is perfect to listen to if you want to be reminded to appreciate things no matter how small.
