After 7 - How Do You Tell The One Lyrics



Today I felt a pain inside my heart
The thought of leaving you was on my mind
If I've been deceiving you, it's all because I'm blind
'cause I care for you more than you know
Although my heart says go
Today I saw the tears inside your eyes
The thought of hurting you, I'd rather die
If I'm deserting you, I don't mean to make you cry
'cause I care for you more than you know
Although my heart says

How do you tell the one
You love goodbye for good
Or even know if you should
And how do you say the words
You thought you never could
When you promised her
That you love was true
Said I'd never think, of leaving you
Oh how can love, be cruel

Today I felt a pain inside my heart
The thought of leaving you had crossed my mind
If I've been deceiving you, it's only cause I'm blind
'cause I care for you more than you know
Although my heart says go

How do you tell the one
You love goodbye for good
Or even know if you should
And how do you say the words
You thought you never could
When you promised her
That you love was true
Said I'd never think, of leaving you
Oh how can love, be cruel

How can you live a lie
When you know it's wrong
And you know it's not right
When you say you do
But you know you don't
When you say you will
But you know that you won't
When you're not alive
You should let it die
Just let go, just let go, of the pain inside
Tell me how do you know
Tell me how to let go
Tell me how, how, how

How do you tell the one
You love goodbye for good
Or even know if you should
And how do you say the words
You thought you never could
When you promised her
That you love was true
Said I'd never think, of leaving you
Oh how can love, be cruel

After 7 How Do You Tell The One Comments
  1. RoeL Buenaventura

    This song plays like a cool summer breeze on the hottest day in July. Honestly, r&b , soul love songs don’t get better than this, and it’s one of Kenny’s best. And if I had to make a list, it’s at the top. Honestly, this song kills me...

  2. Eric Johnson

    This song is what I be thinking lately about my relationship

  3. L ANGEL LOVE

    TRUE ENOUGH THE LATE AND GREAT MELVIN EDMONDS WILL
    ALWAYS BE HIGHLY MISSED

    BUT IT'S TRULY A BLESSING
    THAT HIS SON
    JASON EDMONDS JOINED THEM

    BEFORE HE LEFT "AFTER 7" WHICH KEEPS THIS AMAZING

    R&B RECORDING ARTIST TOGETHER AS #1 WHILE THEY CONTINUE TO PRODUCE MORE

    GREAT MUSIC TOGETHER AS JASON SINGS GREAT AND

    YES HE PLAYS THE KEYS
    EXTREMELY WELL,

    NOW LAST, BUT NOT LEAST
    I CANNOT FORGET THEIR AMAZING AND VERY TALENTED

    BROTHER AND EXTRAORDINARY
    MUSIC PRODUCER
    KENNY "BABYFACE" EDMONDS

    WOW MORE
    CAN I SAY ABOUT THIS

  15. Eric Sila

    This was one thoes songs going through a relationship breakdown asking questions ,Doubts,what ifs, what happens next.. So many questions back then you didnt have the answer to..But looking forward 15 years later you release you needed to go through that pain stage to get where you are now.Thanks After 7 lyrics were heartfelt.and it got me through some hard times when i thought sadness was forever..Guess not.

    Melvin had an overlooked and underrated sexy melodic tone They were a good blend. But I could have listened to a Cd with just his voice singing soft melodic ballads.

  35. Mz Sazzymomma75 B.

    Yes very nice but true words how could you...

  36. Tracy Allen

    Beautifully spoken!

    Love Music

    Tracy Allen .........I wish Babyface would make this kind of music again. Get all his old instruments out to give us his signature sound again! Kenny "Babyface" Edmunds..leave the stuff you have been doing lately alone! This is the sound we want! Bring it back pleeeeeeze?

    Love Music

    Get Darryl Simmonds and L.A Reid back in that studio with you. I know you can do it alone but the magic will spark up with them. Take it back to where you started out. Karyn White should never have gone to JAM AND LEWIS. BIG CAREER MISTAKE! They are TOTALLY brilliant but it didn't work as well. Anyone agree? Make an album like you did with WAITING TO EXHALE with various artists using your "original style" with your friends Toni Braxton, Karyn White, Johnny Gill, Boys to Men, Tevin Campbell, Gladys Knight etc. GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT WE WANT AND LOVE YOU FOR!

  37. I hate haters

    I been looking for this song

  38. Love Music

    Babyface productions......THE BEST!

  39. Curtis Gilbert

    Today I felt a pain inside my heart, How do you tell the one you love goodbye for good, when promised her, the lyrics are the bomb.

    MrExplor80

    Curtis Gilbert thanks to Babyface!

  40. Kevin Mitchell

    even to this day this is a beautiful song, wish they would make music like this today.

  41. Raawban Ashar

    Old school is thousand times better than to days music

  42. michel prins

  49. fjohnson02

    Great song! This song has propelled me recently to leave my current relationship without looking back! What God has for me is for me! You have to truely love yourself and know that you are treasure in the eyes of God! Oftentimes we just settle for less just to say we have someone! It's not worth it!! Live life to the full because it too short! My hat goes off to the person who posted this single! Gave me the chills all over again!! Love,peace, and prosperity!!!
