Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready or the heart aches to come.

Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come.
(Can't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come.

I want to run but there's no place to go
For heartaches will find me I know.
Without your love, a love I need
It's the beginning of the end of me.

'cause you've taken away all my reasons for living
When you pushed aside all the love I've been giving.
Now wait a minute!
Didn't I always treat you right
Now baby didn't I, didn't I, didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could
Now didn't I, didn't I?

(Don't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
Getting ready for the heart aches to come.
(Can't you see me) Standing in the shadows of love
Doing my best to get ready for the heart aches to come.

All alone I'm destined to be
With misery my only company.

It may come today, or it may come tomorrow
But it's for sure I've got nothing but sorrow.
I thought your conscience would kinda bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I've done for you?

Hold on a minute!
I gave you all the love I had
Now didn't I, didn't I, didn't I?
When you needed me I was always there
Now wasn't I, wasn't I?

(Don't you leave me) Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come.
I'm trying not to cry out loud
'Cause all this cryin' it ain't, it ainc1
