Arcade Fire - Normal Person Lyrics




Oh man
Do you like Rock and Roll music?
‘Cause I don’t know if I do

Is anything as strange as a normal person?
Is anyone as cruel as a normal person?
Waiting after school for you
They want to know if you
If you're normal too
Well, are you?
Are you?

I'm so confused. Am I a normal person?
You know, I can't tell if I'm a normal person
It's true, I think I'm cool enough, but am I cruel enough?
Am I cruel enough for you?

And they will break you down
Till everything is normal now
I know
And they will break you down
Till everything is normal now
I know

They take their tea at two
All the normal people, they do
They burn the jungle down
While they were sleeping, it grew
You dream in English now
In proper English, look how
You're just the same as me
It's through

And they will break you down
Till everything is normal now
I know
And they will break you down
Till everyone is normal now
I know

If that's what's normal now
I don't want to know
If that's what's normal now
Mama don't make me go

When they get excited, they try to hide it
Look at those normals go
When they get excited, they try to hide it
Look at those normals go
When they get excited, they try to hide it
Look at those normals go
When they get excited, they try to hide it... No!

And they will break you down
Till everything is normal now
I know
And they will break you down
Till everyone is normal now
I know

If that's what's normal now
I don't want to know
If that's what's normal now

Maybe if you hang together
You can make the changes in our hearts
And if you hang together
You can change us, just where should you start?

I've never really ever met a normal person
I've never really ever met a normal person
I've never really ever met a normal person
I've never really ever met a normal person... like you!
How do you do?
How do you do?

Arcade Fire Normal Person Comments
  1. Tanner Wood

    This song blows, the guitar sounds like a right handed guitarist is playing a left handed guitar.

    Sarir Kamalabadi

    Tanner Wood ok boomer

  2. katerina panagiwtou

    This is the most real thing i have heard in a while

  3. Daniel Badeaux

    Guitar for sure best part of song. Brings me back to when I was learning to play. I can't get that feeling like I did when I first started....it's all soul no skill just sounds no keys or chords

  4. Anson Hartzler

    Cage The Elephant???

    Sarir Kamalabadi

    Anson Hartzler good observation this definitely sounds like them

  5. O. Johnson

    Eugenics

  6. BeepBeepImaSheep

    came for arcade fire, stayed for that guitar solo

  7. tatsu tashi

    1:01 「ってか来るな 今来るな 今来るな!」

  8. Adam AMBM

    This should have been the lead single from the album. Arcade Fire has a weird habit of making the slowest songs on their records the lead single, I think they'd be more popular otherwise.

    Dex Starr

    The Suburbs and Sprawls II, I mean eh, maybe should've made Month of May a single, but The Suburbs blew them up.

  9. Æ Kiwi Dan

    I've never really ever met a normal person - like you! How do you do?

  10. Tim Carter

    Good god damn I love this song. So cathartic to sing

  11. Christian Lawrence

    Believe it or not, My Mom actually introduced me to this. I like it!

    Sergio Serrano

    Christian Lawrence that’s a hip mom you got there

    katerina panagiwtou

    Why not to believe it😂

  12. JesKay Gaming

    Normal person.

  13. Th.El.Co._1

    I'm obsessed with the beginning where he says "Do you like rock and roll music? Cuz I don't know if I dooooo." Ha it's just kind of a small detail that I find great.

    Brendan Black

    Hmmm...

  14. Scott W. Allen

    Look at them normals go ....

  15. Lars Høgh

    Talking Heads meets Pixies and have ball 😁

  16. American Chauvinist

    The way the vocals compress is beautiful.

  17. Moisés Cituk

  18. Bruno Silva

    The chorus reminds me a bit of Radiohead, which is a great thing. One of their best songs for sure.

    Brendan Black

    Good call about it sounding like Radiohead, I agree.

    FlexxReaper

    I actually just looked this song up on YouTube to look, if anybody else thinks, that this sounds like it could have come from a Radiohead song. And here it is

    PL le zèbre

    reminds me a lot of the bends era ^^

  19. daibar

    I resolved to be less human to people this year, and this song exactly explains why.

  20. Mike Eroyan

    At 3:18 gives me goosebumps every time.

    Blaise Castelli

    Mike Eroyan everytime.

  21. Mike Eroyan

    One of the best songs on this album for sure!

  22. Olivia Strang

    THIS SONG IVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR IT FOREVER

  23. Gabe B.

    I love this song but can someone explain to me what the shit is going on with the lead guitar in chorus?? It's nearly out of key, the bend sucks, and so up front in the mix. It doesn't make sense to me how it made it slipped passed their mixing engineer and their mastering engineer and made it onto the final record.
    sweet track though.

    steaknife56

    I was actually LOOKING for the version of this song with this exact guitar.

    Th.El.Co._1

    I think it's what makes the song awesome tbh.

    Brendan Black

    Part-Time Party Time LOL

    Toppu

    lol, I actually don't like that lead guitar part either
    something's slightly off

    Dean Schulz

    Yeah it's really intentional. I can guarantee someone was talking in the headphones going, "worse! Worse! Jump while you play it! Make it sounds shittier! Someone go push him on the next take."

  24. Gofa ku

    Dope as shit

    Mike Eroyan

    Is shit really that dope?

  25. Will L

    eargasmic

    Mike Eroyan

    My ears came.

  26. Camila Salgado

    OMG!!!!!! This is magical.
    Of course, this is one of the best songs ever.
    Sensational.

  27. MAGIC GIANT

    We really loved your clip. You must make more

  28. Linas

    That's indie rock it self, at most beautiful form.

  29. Luca Gibelli

    Friend of mine gave me this album and I was blown away by these songs. I had never heard of Arcade Fire before, never got a single recommendation from Spotify, iTunes, last.fm etc. for them. It is the ultimate failure of recommendation algorithms.

    miriam venti

    so much of the stones in this...

    Th.El.Co._1

    Globe Alone That's the thing with music. It's all relative. I heard this first and it's still my favorite by them. Although I also really love Suburbs and Funeral. Not sure why this album gets a bad rep. I think it's super sublime and incredibly mesmerizing. Especially the second part of it. It's like I'm in another world..it's just so great.

    ARES DESIDERATA

    r e f l e k t o r is their best

    Kreutz

    Maybe you weren't recommended it ever because you only listened to normal music all the time.

  30. milo unwin-gibson

    so yr saying u don't like this song😲

  31. milo unwin-gibson

    so good how can anyone not like this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Vulcan Princess

    +milo unwin-gibson because they're normal, probly

  32. dragoniguana

    Arcade Fire is so cool when they go full-on rock. This and Month of May are both really great songs.

    Jadan Kerr

    "Gonna make a record"

    SteBrazier2K9

    Infinite Content didn't live up to those two lol

    Anson Hartzler

    Don’t forget Neighbourhood 3.

  33. Filmogenics
