After The Pain Lyrics by Betty Wright - Lyrics On Demand

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. 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.
