"Standing In The Shadows Of Love"
(Holland - Dozier - Holland)

Chorus 1:

Bbm Bbm/Ab
Standing in the shadows of love
Gbmaj7 F7sus4 F7
I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come, can't you see me
Bbm Bbm/Ab
Standing in the shadows of love
Gbmaj7 F7sus4 F7
I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come

Verse 1:

Gb Abm7 Db
I want to run but there's nowhere to go
Gb Abm7 Db
'Cause heartaches will follow me, I know
Gb Abm7 Db
Without your love, the love I need
Gb Abm7 Db
It's the beginning of the end for me

Ebsus4 Ebm
'Cause you've taken away all my reasons for living
Bb Cbdim
When you pushed aside all the love I've been giving

Bbm [N.C.; congas continue]
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

Chorus 2:

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
Tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come

Verse 2:

All alone my destiny
With misery my only company
It may come today, it might come tomorrow
But it's for sure I ain't got nothing but sorrow

Now don't your conscience try to bother you?
How can you watch me cry after all I've 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?

Verse 3:

(Standing in the shadows of love)
(Gettin' ready for the heartaches to come)
I'm tryin' not to cry out loud
You know cryin', 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?

Chorus 3:

I'm 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
Tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come, oh, I'm
