AFTER THE PAIN (Betty Wright) Betty Wright - 1988 Well, I couldn't resist the urge to tell you the end of my story For all those who wanted to know was there life after the pain After the pain You come and love me And I welcome you You're a glad sight to see And after the rain And all that I have been through Still can't explain How I can still love you like I do But I do, yes, I do Still love you like I do (After the pain) Though you still do me like you do (After the pain) After the pain We sit and we talk awhile And I fight with all my might To hold back the tears >From falling with a pleasant smile After the rain I can't believe you got the nerve to still call me baby And I try to tell you, "No, it ain't so" But I guess "No" just ain't in me 'Cause boy, I still love you like I do (After the pain) Though you still do me like you do (After the pain) Yeah, I know you're laughin' Those of you who heard "Pain" Now, you're right, I sure did I said I'd never take him back again Well, it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, isn't it? But we do it all the time Don't laugh, you probably done the same thing too It's just that you know me and I don't know you You know one thing time has taught me that Havin' a piece of man is better than havin' no man at all So I'm just gonna just take what I got and work with it You understand what I mean And don't you remember thinkin' back just a few years When people used to try to help you stay together They find out you're on the verge of breakin' up They used to cook up a little food and throw a little party And whisper things in your ear like "Don't blame Mr. Charlie, Mr. Charlie is just a man And he's doing the best he can" I heard 'em say, "Don't blame Mr. Charlie, Mr. Charlie is just a man And he's doing the best he can" That's why I still love you like I do (After the pain) Though you still do me like you do (After the pain, the pain) I know that you know it's true after all I've been through I should be through with love, but there's a God up above That keeps sayin', "Betty try, don't give up, you know why The sun is gonna shine 'cause you are mine, all mine You just keep doin' your best and I will do the rest 'Cause I love you, love you, Betty, like I do" That's why I still love you like I do (After the pain, the pain) Though you still do me like you do (After the pain, the pain) My love is deeper than any ocean And my love is higher than any mountain It's, oh, it's full of emotion My love is full of devotion My love is in and out of season And I love you with or without a reason You see God is gonna bless me for lovin' you For all the times that you treated me wrong and I kept bein' true You see, God's eyes they're not closed He's not asleep Said He's watchin' every move you make Every secret you keep Boy, you better be careful Hoo... Hoo... Hoo... Hoo... Said if you treat me bad or make me sad My Father in Heaven is watching you But I still love you like I do (After the pain) And no-n-n-no-n-n-no-n-n-nobody's ever gonna love you like I do (After the pain) Sayin' no one's ever gonna love you like I do No one's ever gonna love you like I do No one's ever gonna love you like I do I don't know why I do, but I do, yes, I do (After the pain) O, there's a woman in me that keeps on lovin' you (After the pain, the pain) I don't know why Oh, I don't know why (I don't know why, baby) (After the pain, the pain) I don't know why (I don't know why, baby), but I do (I do) Said I do (I do, I do, I do) Said I... (After the pain, the pain) (Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa) (After the pain, the pain) Do, I don't know why, baby (After the pain, the pain) But I love you so... Yes, I do (After the pain, the pain) Baby, don't you know it's true, yes, I do Baby [After the pain], no strain (The pain) Still love you after the pain (The pain) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - February 2015)
