Regina Spektor (II)

“This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath”

[Regina Spektor – On the Radio]

“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”
