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

I don't know why I'm laughing
I'm still wet from the rain
I don't know why I'm laughing
I'm still spotted from the stain

I don't know why I'm laughing
I'm burning from the flame
I don't know why I'm laughing
There's 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 ain't lying
It's 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 don't know why I'm laughing
Immigration breathing down my back
Ain't got no money for a pay off
Stay in jail until they send me back

I don't know why I'm laughing
I'm still hurting from the pain
A foreigner in this hell hole
He ain't never gunna touch me again

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

I don't know why I'm laughing
I'm still wet from the rain
I don't know why I'm crying
I'm still spotted from the stain

You know I ain't lying
I'm burning, burning up from the flame
I don't 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
