  1. Providence Laugh

From the recording The Outsider

Lyrics

Dark clouds fly above my head
They mean nothing but tears and death
My heart is black, my soul’s in pain
But only her voice can stop the rain

Because there’s nothing more precious in this desperate world
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
There’s nothing more refreshing in these crazy times
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
A joyful anthem, a cure for every pain
She’s coloring my life like a rainbow in the sky

She already died a dozen times
No healthy food but some good red wine
She never complains of her tired old bones
Kneeling at church, making dirty jokes

There’s nothing more precious in this desperate world
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
There’s nothing more refreshing in these crazy times
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
A joyful anthem, a cure for every pain
She’s coloring my life like a rainbow in the sky

It’s a sound, it’s a boom, it’s a bang
That would make your heart light as spring
It’s a breath, it’s a shout, it’s a storm
The exact definition of joy

Hunched on her cane in her ageless dress
She swears like a sailor when reading the press
“All the politicians, they are gutter thieves
They’d better run fast on the battlefield”

There’s nothing more precious in this desperate world
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
There’s nothing more refreshing in these crazy times
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
There’s nothing more precious in this desperate world
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
There’s nothing more refreshing in these crazy times
Than Providence laugh, Providence laugh
A joyful anthem, a cure for every pain
She’s coloring my life, like a rainbow in the sky
