Laughing with…

I also got Regina Spektor’s “Far” the otherday, and I got round to listening to that today.

What is there to say but wow!

Amazing..

Its been a while since a song made me cry. This one did though:

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 that party yet

No one laughs at God when their aeroplane
Starts 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’ve got some bad news, sir,”
No one’s laughing at God when there’s a famine, fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us
And they get so red in the head you think that they’re about 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’s laughing at God when they’ve lost all they 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 while listening to a good God-themed joke or
Or when the crazies say he hates us
And they get so red in the head you think that they’re about 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’s laughing at God in a 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

Hauntingly beautiful song called Laughing With. I’ve been looking around on the internet, and I think its her first single off the album actually.. Not that any South African radio stations would play Regina. The video’s also pretty rad.. A whole lot of surrealist stuff going on in the background. That got me super amped! And I love the piano she plays (the one on the album cover). Rad! Check it out..
