After Laughter (Comes Tears)

Album: single release (1964)
  • After laughter comes tears
    After your laughter there will be tears

    When you're in love, you're happy
    When your in a arm, you gaze
    This doesn't last always

    After your laughter there will be tears

    My friends all say, don't try to hold it in
    But I can't let that guy know how I feel
    I'll try to hold back my, my, my tears
    But they keep say

    After your laughter oh, oh, oh

    I'll try to hide, hide my sorrows
    I wonder can I hold them till tomorrow
    Maybe ill hold them for a year
    But they keep say

    After your laughter
    Now you will see those wet little tears

    After your laughter
    A little biddy tear will look climb into your eye Writer/s: JOSEPH W. FRIERSON, MARY FRIERSON
