Laughing With

Wednesday, June 03, 2009 Unknown 0 Comments

I've been a big fan of Regina Spektor for the past 4 years & I've even blog about her on several occasions.I just love her voice & the fact that she likes to do a lot with it(listen to her songs & you'll get what I mean) and the fact that she can play many instruments & she wrote most of her songs.

Now after on hiatus for a long time,she's back with a great single 'Laughing With'.I listened to it this morning before going to pre-prac & it was very uplifting.The official video is below & the lyrics is below the video.Listen/read the lyrics because it's deep..Long live Regina Spektor & may she keep on making great music! Enjoy 'Laughing With'!!

P/S:Today's 'confession' by Izza during pre-prac further strengthen what I blog about in an old post--practicum=nerve wrecking & scary!

LAUGHING WITH BY REGINA SPEKTOR




*the lyric*


No one laughs at God in a hospital

No one laughs at God in a war

No one’s laughing at God

When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor



No one laughs at God

When the doctor calls after some routine tests

No one’s laughing at God

When it’s gotten real late

And their kid’s not back from the party yet



No one laughs at God

When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake

No one’s laughing at God

When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else

And they hope that they’re mistaken



No one laughs at God

When the cops knock on their door

And they say we got some bad news, sir

No one’s laughing at God

When there’s a famine or fire or flood



*Chorus*

But God can be funny

At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke,

Or when the crazies say

He hates us

And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke

God can be funny,When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way

And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini

Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus

God can be so hilarious

Ha ha

Ha ha



No one laughs at God in a hospital

No one laughs at God in a war

No one’s laughing at God

When they’ve lost all they’ve got

And they don’t know what for

No one laughs at God on the day they realize

That the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes

No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes



But God can be funny

At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke,

Or when the crazies say

He hates us

And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke

God can be funny,When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way

And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini

Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus

God can be so hilarious



No one laughs at God in a hospital

No one laughs at God in a war

No one laughs at God in a hospital

No one laughs at God in a war

No one laughing at God in hospital

No one’s laughing at God in a war

No one’s laughing at God when they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one’s laughing at God

No one’s laughing at God

No one’s laughing at God

We’re all laughing with God
