Birth of a song; the Rosetta Life's artists diary

Laugh Again

The song that's not yet set

The Wednesday's response to Maxine Edgington's We Laughed, on its way to becoming a song lyric.

photo of EricaI want to laugh again
The way we used to laugh
I want to laugh again
Do you recall

The day I wore the tiger suit
I want to laugh again
The day we wet ourselves at Doctor Who
Let's laugh again

You laugh less at the beginning
You lose yourself
The months of crying
You lose that special me thing
At the thought of dying
I want to laugh again
Do you recall

photo of GillThe time you bit into that donut
I want to laugh again
The cream all down your face
I want to laugh again
The day I wore my knickers sideways
How we laughed
The day the seagull nicked my cornet
I'll laugh again

The tears, the fears
Uncertainty, changed plans
The years not knowing
Mortgage owing
Future slipping through your hands
I want to laugh again
Do you recall

photo of LesleyThe day your bum went through the deckchair
Let's laugh again
The day I lost my tights at Cannon Street
I laughed and laughed
The day I saw a Bakewell tart without its cherry
You should have seen me laugh
The time when my prosthesis made that funny noise
We laughed and laughed

Why have you gone all serious
And straightlaced
Why won't you laugh with me
Why turn away your face
I want to laugh again
Do you recall

photo of SueThe time when my prosthesis fell into the dishwasher
Let's laugh again
The time when my prosthesis burnt while making custard
Let's laugh again
The time we sent text messages to the cat
We'll laugh again
The day I put the yoghurt pot on the cat
We laughed

Let's laugh again
I want to be
The old familiar me
