"Laura" as written by and Billy Joel....
Feel the words from my lips,
See your hearts fingertip,
And you know were I come from,
Cause I know, yes I know,
Everything there is to know,
Cause I've lost everything I've had

See I,
I could have danced on the sun,
But my world came undone

Laura

There's no need for tears,
Cause there's no need to cry,
A love that you leave
Shall never be denied,
A pain in my head,
Escaped from my heart,
No woman alive could touch what you were

So bye bye Laura,
There's no one to take your place,
Bye bye Laura,
Your beauty will never fade,

They'll say that's your song,
And reach for the sky,
The river is gone,
And everyone cried,
And after the song,
A spirit lives on,
Though your not around,
You'll never be gone,

So bye bye Laura,
There's no one to take your place,
Bye bye Laura,
Your beauty will never fade,

But I,
I could have danced on the sun
But but my world came undone
Laura

And I,
I could have danced on the sun
But but my world came undone
Bye bye Laura

So bye bye Laura,
There's no one to take your place,
Bye bye Laura,
Your beauty will never fade,

So bye bye Laura,
There's no one to take your place,
Bye bye Laura,
Your beauty will never fade,
Fade!

    General CommentThere's no need for tears
    Cause there's no need to cry
    I look at you leave
    We'll never reunite
    The pain in my head comes straight from the heart
    No woman alive could touch who you are
    So bow down, Laura
    Cause no one could take your place
    Bow down, Laura
    Your beauty will never fade
    The seed that you sewen will reach for the sky
    Whenever theres love your memory won't die
    And after this song, her spirit lives on
    Though your not around you'll never be gone

    General CommentSo excited they're doing a studio version of this song for their new DVD/CD, however, it won't be the same without the drunk yelling "laura..."

    General CommentWho was Laura? Was she the wife he refers to in Black Friday Rule ("well, I lost me a wife so I found me a plane/flew all the way to California")?
