Cry Now, Laugh Later - Grace Jones

Cry now, Laugh later.

It's time now to return the favor,
Cry now, laugh laugh later.

I dont know why I'm laughing,
I'm still wet from the rain,
I dont know why I'm laughing,
I'm still spotted from the stain.

I dont know why I'm laughing,
I'm burning from the flame,
I dont know why I'm laughing,
Theres a storm running through my veins.

Cry now, laugh later,
Cry now, laugh later,
Sign out, I'll see you later,
Time now to return the favor.

You know I aint lying,
Its so unreal on the other side,
I'll tell you why I'm crying,
Dad's ten grand on a 4 wheel drive,
I thought they wanted money,
Two thieves as they were passing by,
They tied me up so lonely,
And took the car out from under my eyes.

Cry now, laugh later,
Cry now, I'll get you later,
I'm just too tired now to return the favor,
Cry now laugh later.

I dont know why I'm laughing,
Immigration breathing down my back,
Aint got no money for a pay off,
Stay in jail until they send me back,
I dont know why I'm laughing,
I'm still hurting from the pain,
A foreigner in this hell hole,
He aint never gunna touch me again.

Cry now, laugh later,
It's time now to return the favor,
You'e got me crying now,
I'll laugh at you later,
Time now to return the favor.

I dont know why I'm laughing,
I'm still wet from the rain,
I dont know why I'm crying,
I'm still spotted from the stain.

You know I ain't lying,
Im burning burning up from the flame,
I dont know why I'm laughing,
I've got the storm running through my veins.

Cry now, laugh later,
Baby got to sign out return later,
Just too tired now to return the favor.

Cry now, laugh later...
