After 7 – How Do You Tell The One lyrics

Written by babyface
Lead vocals: melvin edmonds, kevon edmonds

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

[Chorus:]

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

[Chorus:]

    I have been listening to this song for a "long" time and got the image "he" is wanting to let her go but today i was listening to this song and hurts me deeply to hear their souls/emotion singing this beautiful song. As I was relating this song to my relationship it hits me when he says "tell me how do you know how to let go..." This song spoke to my spirit and. This is me and it really hurts when someone you love leaves you. She left him and he is asking her how do can you do that to someone you love because he cannot.
