Watch “Regina Spektor – On the Radio Live (Bonnaroo 2010)” on YouTube

  1. 2 of 4
    This is how it works
    It feels a little worse
    Than when we drove our hearse
    Right through that screaming crowd
    While laughing up a storm
    Until we were just bone
    Until it got so warm
    That none of us could sleep
    And all the Styrofoam
    Began to melt away
    We tried to find some worms
    To aid in the decay
    But none of them were home
    Inside their catacomb
    A million ancient bees
    Began to sting our knees
    While we were on our knees
    Praying that disease
    Would leave the ones we love
    And never come again

    On the radio
    We heard November Rain
    That solo’s really long
    But it’s a pretty song
    We listened to it twice
    ‘Cause the DJ was asleep

    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
    And 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’ll just do it all again

    And on the radio
    You hear November Rain
    That solo’s awful long
    But it’s a good refrain
    You listen to it twice
    ‘Cause the DJ is asleep
    On the radio
    (Oh, oh, oh)
    On the radio
    On the radio, uh oh
    On the radio, uh oh
    On the radio, uh oh
    On the radio

    Songwriters: Regina Spektor
