Foo Fighters - Normal Lyrics




The waves that silences break come again, one by one
I lay awake and I count till I drown
Turn up the room it's getting too loud
I know I don't have to say it
Pick up and move and go find some new ground
Somewhere I know I can make it

But I won't give up when I want it enough
No I won't give up
Anything, anyway, anyone, anyday
Cause I figured it out
Here and the now takes me day by day

Will you come out tonight
Will you back down, will you put up a fight
Turn me around and make everything right
Make me normal from now on

Erased everyone I've replaced
In the end they're all gone
The faces all fade as the time passes by
What could I do I was waiting for you
Grown sick and tired of faking
Give me those eyes when I give you the truth
Finally here for the taking

But I won't give up
When I want it enough
No I won't give up
Anything, anyway, anyone, anyday
Cause I figured it out
Here and the now takes me day by day

Will you come out tonight
Will you back down, will you put up a fight
Turn me around and make everything right
Make me normal from now on

Hey will you come out tonight
Will you back down, will you put up a fight
Turn me around and make everything right
Make me normal from now on

I've figured it out here and the now
Takes me day by day

  1. Jacob Cutlip

    If they ever played this and Come Back live I would have an aneurism

  2. daniB5000

    Thanks for sharing! How this song never made One By One I'll never know.

  3. NextSongs4God

    Yep I think we can finally say that Foo Fighters have surpassed Nirvana....

  4. Christian Sarmiento

    Maravilloso

    15 years of this beautifull song

  9. Sarah P.

    2017 and still surprised this song didn't make it to the album

  10. 1LinkEdits

    One of the best things about the Foo Fighters is that their B-sides, the songs that dont even make it onto the album are just as good

    Matt LaTorre

    I'm still holding onto hope that one day the band will sit down and put together a compilation of rare tracks like this one.

  11. Cecilia Yalangozian

    This song is so good it should have been released as a single.

  12. Sarah Coleman

    I never get tired of this song. I've had this and Requiem on repeat. 👌🏻

  13. Rush1017

    Sounds like the bridge between One by One and In Your Honor

    Mason Puckett

    Rush1017 wow great analogy. It really does!

  14. Sunland Park Kevin Besler

    lovvve ittt

  15. Sabe Kanontsistonties Tashie McKay

    I saw them back in 2008 and every second was a wave of emotional power.

    Kellie Rush

    Tashie McKay I cried!!!

  16. OnyxBlackSmith

    Foo Fighters are my favorite band because i never get tired of their music, every time i'm sick of one album i go listen to another one. Each have their own feel, witch makes every song unique.

    David Leaper

    OnyxBlackSmith agreed they even have a song called tired of you which I think is brilliant

  17. Pedro Lorenzo

    I feel like the Foo's demos and singles are often much better than their album tracks

  18. Andrew Thomas

    My opinion, this is better than Times Like These and All My Life

    Davy Grohlington

    +Andrew Thomas your opinion. But I think nothing beats All my life when they Play it live. The concert can be bad as fuck but when it gets to the "Dumdum dumdumdum" of All my life everybody is freakin out.

    The song is awesome though and I still don't understand why it isn't on the record.

    Matt LaTorre

    Live, I don't think that's quite the case :P But it is better than half of One By One and I tend to enjoy that album more than most fans do

  19. john smith

    can you make a Lyric Video?

  20. Guile Peres de Oliveira

    Foo Fighters think this song is too Normal.
    For me, is fucking amazing!

  21. Politics and Tea

    This a great song!

  22. Tamara Grohl

    Why this isn't in One by One?! It's incredible!

    Michael hi

    +Tamara Grohl better than most of the songs on one by one tbh

    kundinga

    maybe it would give a "poppier" sound to the album.. i don't know, is the only (not so much) logical explanation i can find in my brain HAHA

    Ryland Cook

    Probably wasn’t heavy enough for the album. Something like this would fit perfectly elsewhere, especially ESPaG or There’s Nothing Left To Lose. But the raw dirtiness of an album like One by One? Probably not so much.

  23. Andrew Thomas

    One by One is a good album, but this song and Make a Bet would have made the album perfect

    Rick Oneill

    Andrew Thomas one by one IMO is pretty average, their worst album. But this would have made it decent.

  24. Chris Thompson

    I don't understand how songs like this don't make the album

    daniB5000

    I was just thinking the same. Some bands waste so many songs as B-sides which nobody ever hardly hears.

    Chopzz

    Indeed too many Foo tracks are lost by the wayside

    Cindy Paul

    Have had this on repeat for a few days. Recently found it. So uplifting. And it starts with the line "the waves that silences break come again, one by one." Would love to know why they kept it off "One by One." I've searched for a live performance and have yet to find one. Great, great song.

    ManhuntRuler 1993

    Cindy Paul it’s not even on iTunes for purchase. This song with the lyrics alone has become my all time favorite foo fighters song. It’s truly beautiful and a uplifting song. LOVE THE FOO FIGHTERS

    MrHeartGrenade

    All Foo Fighters songs are great

  25. DENISE WHITE BLONDIE ROCKER

    I just love the way Dave sings....Cant get enough of the Foo ....lol

  26. Kathy White

    Gosh, can they ever do anything wrong? I absolutely love this song. Like another said, please put out a b-side album for us  hard core fans!!!

  27. John Vara

    It's all awesome. Every fucking one

  28. billyblackburn87

    the vocal tune and chorus is class but the bland riffs let this song down.

  29. Eleanor Gay.

    Foo Fighters, Will the band be making any vinyl presses of your current music? This would sound so rich coming from an album?

    Eleanor Gay.

    I always have to ask. I love the music.

  30. Chris Duxbury

    "Significative" is not a word. I believe you were looking for "significant." What you said is a portmanteau of "significant" and "indicative."

    Or maybe I'm missing the irony of this comment?

  31. Kurt John Garcia

    Sounds better than the rest of 'One by One'.

  32. Diego de Souza Almeida

    Your, Sir.. Deserve a little bit more of likes!

  33. slushygirl20

    Reminds me of what I wish I was.

  34. Kern Parks

    even though i loved one by one, this is better than most of the songs on the album. This and One should've been on the album for sure

  35. James Ovenden

    Well, one person clearly needs to go to a Mental hospital

  36. tylerden

    Wow what a great song, touching

  37. john murphy

    seriously...what clueless idiot decided that this wasnt album material ....without doubt the best b side they have ever recorded

  38. LeiAherne7

    This and the million dollar recording of come back would have made the album much better.

  39. tylerden

    I agree man rock

  40. Alex Knorr

    Also known as b-sides. Not criticizing, just saying.

  41. NYRAPPERFULL

    If The Foo's would make an album of all the songs that didn't make it to their original album and .... called them the remains.
    It would look something like this:
    /playlist?list=PLAIJV22YiSBqewxpCNmwBQGlT4V6Ts1fP&feature=mh_lolz

  42. María de la Paz Casaux

    This song appears as part of the soundtrack of a movie? Because every time I hear it I think so, although I could not tell what ...

  43. MikeeSings4You

    exactly plus I like bands puttin b sides on singles cos it creates a small community on here for people to enjoy the stuff the majority will never hear :)

  44. SupernovaPrincess

    I don't think there's a Foo song I don't like they are amazing, Dave Grohl fookin rocks!!!!

  45. Sophia OShea

    The Foo's should make an album of all the songs that didn't make it to their original album....
    call them the remains, but I think they are just as good as the rest of their songs.

  46. Insomniac1984

    Que buena canción de los Foo!!

  47. Cam Hart

    this is better than half the album

  48. foca culia

    he estado buscando esta cancion toda mi vida! La escuche en la radio, me enamoré y nunca supe el nombre D: por fin te encontré mierda<3

  49. jalalipop

    It's a b-side... the single is the song on the cover of the CD, the other songs are b-sides.

  50. Loukhyax

    It appeared on 20/01/2003 with Times Like These and Learn to Fly (live). So, it was it's single release.

  51. jalalipop

    I'm pretty sure this was not a single

  52. redmay131

    You can get the feeling from the first few seconds it will be another great song.

  53. GrohlAndVedder

    It's really a shame. It's so good and the Foo Fighters played very strong on this one. And lyrics are very significative.
