Standing In The Shadows Of Love

Standing In The Shadows Of Love

The Four Tops

Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heart aches 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 follow d 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 treat you right, now baby 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
I'm 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,
When you needed me I was always there
Now wasn't I, wasn't I?

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 ain't gonna
Help me none!

Now what did I do, girl, to cause all this grief?
Now what did I say to make you want to leave?
Now wait a minute!
I gave my heart and soul to you now didn't I,
And didn't I always treat you good now didn't I, didn't I?

I'm standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready
