Standing in the shadows of love
I'm gettin’ ready for the heartaches to come
Can't you see me standing in the shadows of love
I'm gettin’ ready for the heartaches to come

I want to run, but there's nowhere to go (Standing in the shadows of love)
Cause heartaches will follow me, I know (Getting ready for the heartaches to come)
Without your love, the love I need (Standing in the shadows of love)
It's the beginning of the end for me (Getting ready for the heartaches to come)

Cause you're taking away all my reasons for livin'
When you pushed aside all the love I been givin'
Now wait a minute

Didn't I treat you right, now baby, didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could now, didn't I?
So, don't you leave me

Standing in the shadows of love
I'm gettin’ ready for the heartaches to come
Don't you see me standing in the shadows of love
Trying my best to get ready for the heartaches to come

All alone I'm destined to be (Standing in the shadows of love)
With misery my only company (Getting ready for the heartaches to come)
It may come today, it might come tomorrow (Standing in the shadows of love)
But it's for sure, I ain't got nothin’ but sorrow (Getting ready for the heartaches to come)

Now don't your conscience kind of bother you?
How can you watch me cry after all I done for you?
Now, hold on a minute

Gave you all the love I had now, didn't I?
When you needed me I was always there now, wasn't I?
(Standing in the shadows of love)
(Getting ready for the heartaches to come)

I'm trying not to cry out loud (Standing in the shadows of love)
You know crying it ain't gonna help me now (Getting ready for the heartaches to come)
What did I do to cause all this grief?
Now what'd I say to make you want to leave?
Now wait a minute
Gave my heart and soul to you now, didn't I?
And didn't I always treat you good, now didn't I?

I'm standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come
Don't you see me standing in the shadows of love
Trying my best to get ready for the heartaches to come
Oh, I'm standing in the shadows of love
