  • 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
    I 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

    And 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"
    Yeah, 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'mma 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 my 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]
    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]
    Oh... 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]

    [After the pain]
