Standing In The Shadows Of Love Lyrics

by Jackson 5

Standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for 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 wanna run but there's no place to go
'Cuz heartaches will find me, I know
Without your love, your love I need
It's the beginning of the end of me

'Cuz 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, 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?
Trying my best to get ready for the heart aches to come

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

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
'Cuz all this cryin' it ain't, it ain't gonna help me none!

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, didn't I, didn't I?
And didn't I always treat you good
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
Standing in the shadows of love
Trying my best to get ready for the heart aches to come

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