Regina Spektor – “On The Radio”

Tonight I started watching Regina Spektor’s new concert DVD, Live In London, and let’s just say it starts off strong. After a gorgeous intro, the first tune is “On The Radio” and while I know and love the song, I nearly cried listening and watching it done live with the orchestra. In fact I had to stop and rewind to re-watch it…to see it and to hear the beautiful words again:

“This is how it works
You’re young until you’re not
You love until you don’t
You try until you can’t
You laugh until you cry
You cry until you laugh
And everyone must breathe
Until their dying breath
No this is how it works
You peer inside yourself
You take the things you like
Then try to love the things you took
And then you take that love you made
And stick it into some…someone else’s heart
Pumping someone else’s blood
And walking arm in arm
You hope it don’t get harmed
But even if it does
You just do it all again…”

I can’t wait to move on to the rest of the DVD…but for now, here’s what made me stop to write:

Regina Spektor
