Lyrics
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Until, I heard a church pray for the death of Obama
And wondered if they knew they share that prayer with Osama
Blasphemy and karma, the comedy of drama
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Until, I imagined, they were suddenly aware of it
But wondered who's the heretic, and is the true terrorist, American or Arabic
A mix of surprise and embarrassment

Laughing and crying at the same time...
Different lives, all the same dying
Two enemies of the same mind
Same hope, same laughter, same crying
But I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Until, I saw a child wish on a star, and it came true
And realized the two of them, shared the same view
From below and above, with the light within
That glows like love and illuminates the truth

I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Like Marvin singing, I heard it through the Grapevine
Until, I saw an old prince, with the fear of a crown
And smoke filled his eyes, with the tears of a clown
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
See, my heart cries, out against lies
So I hate when it's sunny, when the world seems blue
It's only funny, cause it's true

But we're human, with me it's less funny, more funny when it's you
That's the rules that we play by
So I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Until, I saw a boy, with a teardrop tatted
Smiling face, painted with a faint trace of sadness
He was laughing and crying at the same time...
They say you can't fall in love with the same mind

I hope it gets there, if I was ever even here
Memory's strange
The past, like the future's never clear
But I'm pretty sure I never smile, while I shed a tear
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Until, I saw my father, as a young man like me
I never laughed and cried at the same time...

Until, I saw god, as a young man like me
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
Until, I saw a girl, bring a smile to her brother
With the wisdom of a child, for the death of their mother
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
I never laughed and cried at the same time...
