Think Of Laura

Album: Another Page (1983)
Charted: 9
  • Every once in a while
    I'd see her smile
    And she'd turn my day around
    A girl with those eyes
    Could stare through the lies
    And see what your heart was saying

    Think of Laura but laugh don't cry
    I know she'd want it that way
    When you think of Laura laugh don't cry
    I know she'd want it that way

    A friend of a friend
    A friend till the end
    That's the kind of girl she was
    Taken away so young
    Taken away without a warning

    I know you and you're here
    In everyday we live
    I know her and she's here
    I can feel her when I sing

    Hey Laura, where are you now
    Are you far away from here
    I don't think so
    I think you're here

  • Simon from Los AngelesBaby, Come To Me was used as the theme song for Robert & Holly not Luke & Laura.
  • Mike from Santa BarbaraLaura Coffin Carter was the 18 y/o woman this song was written in honor of. She was the only daughter of Edward Carols Carter, a professor and author, and Teresa Howard Carter, an archaeologist.
  • Rene from Vargem Grande Paulista - Sao Paulo - BrasilThe singer said himself that Laura was a very good friend of his who died very early but was someone who just knew how to feel happiness.
  • Matt from Dalton, PaLalah,

    Genie Francis first left the show in January 1982 which was when her character was abducted and presumed dead. The song, "Think of Laura", was not released until the fall of 1983. When Genie Francis made her dramatic return to the show in November 1983, this song featured prominently in that storyline. It was then that the song became a hit.
  • Kel from Kansas City, MoWhat a fabulous way to pay tribute to someone you cared about. This song is so beautiful it makes me feel like I knew her myself. By far one of the most beautiful voices as well. Bravo!
  • Miz Lady from Oakland, CaI remember walking on the playground at recess in fifth grade listening to this song on my Walkman and crying. I knew at even that age that this song was about someone very special that the writer had lost and he wrote this song to have everyone remember her the way he did.
  • Mike from Hastings, NeWhen I was going to college, a fellow education student by the name of Laura was killed in a VERY stupid off-road vehicle accident that wasn't her fault. She was one of those people who was a friend to everyone and she always had a smile. It was senseless. I got to write a guest column for the school newspaper and I divided my thoughts up in the column with lyrics from this great song. It really helped the campus learn what a great person she was.
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkI'm not certain but wasn't this song used so Genie Francis could exit General Hospital at the height of her popularity? When her character was "abducted" in came two new actresses, playing sisters, Demi Moor and Jenine Turner. Then the song was given a reprieve so Genie could return as a guest or else that's when it was played. Anybody? Anyway, I was hooked on the show from the time Laura stole Scotty from Luke's sister, Bobbie. It took moving to Alaska when TV was two weeks behind the rest of the US to lose interest. For two weeks I knew what was going to happen then I found a job and didn't have time to watch anymore. I'm glad this song gets air time.
