"Laughing" as written by and Cummings Bachman....
I should laugh, but I cry
Because your love has passed me by
You took me by surprise
You didn't realize but I was waiting

Time goes slowly, but carries on
And now the best years have come and gone
You took me by surprise
I didn't realize that you were laughing

(Laughing) 'cause you're doin' it to me
(Laughing) it ain't the way it should be
You took away everything I had, you put the hurt on me

(Laughing) 'cause you're doin' it to me
(Laughing) it ain't the way it should be
You took away everything I had, you put the hurt on me

I go alone now, calling your name
After losing at the game
You took me by surprise
I didn't realize that you were laughing

Time goes slowly, but carries on
And now the best years
The best years have come and gone
You took me by surprise
I didn't realize that you were laughing

(Laughing) 'cause you're doin' it to me
(Laughing) it ain't the way it should be
You took away everything I had, you put the hurt on me

(Laughing) 'cause you're doin' it to me
(Laughing) oh, whatch doing to me?
You took away everything I had ,you put the hurt on me, oh

(Laughing) ha ha ha ha ha ha
(Laughing) ha ha ha ha ha ha
(Laughing) what, you laughing at me?
(Laughing) what, you laughing at me?

(Laughing) oh, what you do on the weekend?
(Laughing) I wanna look when you're laughing
(Laughing) I wanna look when you're laughing
(Laughing)

    General CommentAll I ever listen to is Classic Rock, and so I have millions of classic rock albums and my girlfriend listened to this song in the car and she actually liked it, and she dislikes most of the classic rock songs!
    She said this was an awesome song, thats mostly why I love this song so much.

    General CommentOne of my favourite songs.
    To me, it represents a hard time in my life when my girlfriend broke up with me, and she just didn't give a shit how I felt.
    this song is about just that.
