Think of Laura Lyrics
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...

to mourn the death of Denison University college student Laura Carter who was killed when she was struck by a stray bullet fired over a block away, during an altercation between four men.
Carter, a lacrosse player from Wayne, Pennsylvania, was sitting in the back seat of a car, being driven by her father, who with his wife, was visiting their daughter for the college's annual homecoming weekend. They planned to take her and two friends to dinner in Columbus, Ohio, having just watched them compete in a lacrosse match.
Cross had come to meet Laura through her college roommate Paige, whom Cross was dating at the time. Paige was pictured on the inner sleeve of the "Another Page" album, sitting on a stool. Cross wrote the song as a way of offering comfort to Paige, and honoring Carter's memory

There is no interpretation he was asked to write and sing it for General Hospital when they wanted to bring Laura Spencer (as in Luke and Laura) back from the dead.

This song is dedicated to her friend who died. maybe this girl is kinda pretty intelligent etc.
" think of laura laugh dont cry i know SHE'D WANT THAT WAY"
" taken away so young, taken away without warning"
