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,
'Cause heartaches will follow me, I know
Without your love, the love I need
It's the beginning of the end of me.
'Cause you're taking away all my reasons for living
When you pushed aside all the love I 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?

So don't you leave me
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.

All alone
I'm destined to be with misery my only company
May come today, it might come tomorrow but it's for sure
I ain't got nothing but sorrow.
Now don't your conscience kind of bother you.
How can you watch me cry after all I done for you.
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?

I'm standing here watching you go.
Girl, you know that I'm gonna need you so.
I'm trying hard not to cry out loud.
You know crying it ain't gonna help me now.
What did I do to cause all this grief?
Now what did 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?

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.
