  • Standing in the shadows of love
    I'm getting ready for the heartache to come
    (Can't you see me)
    Standing in the shadows of love
    I'm getting ready for the heartache to come

    Promise me, I wouldn't cry
    When the time came girl to say goodbye
    I always knew that one day we would part
    I always knew that you'd break my heart
    But that was a chance I had to take
    And even though I knew that it would cause me pain
    Just one look and I lost my way
    And if you'd ask I'd do the same again

    [Chorus]
    Standing in the shadows of love
    I'm getting ready for the heartache to come
    (Can't you see me)
    Standing in the shadows of love
    I'm getting ready for the heartache to come
    (Can't you see me)

    Some things in life are too good to resist
    Opportunities that shouldn't be missed
    From the first time that I laid my eyes on you
    I knew right then I couldn't stop even if I wanted to
    Cause somehow you got under my skin
    My heart was locked but nothing stopped you breaking in
    And even now I know that we're through
    Over and over I just wanna kiss you

    [Chorus:Repeat x2]

    I'm just a man with a hole in my life
    No stars are dancing in my sky tonight
    Baby I need you to make this thing right
    I can't be alone no one more lie

    [Chorus:Repeat x2] Writer/s: BRIAN HOLLAND, CRAIG DAVID, EDWARD, JR. HOLLAND, GRANT BLACK, JERRY ABBOTT, LAMONT DOZIER, SOLANKHI SHRIDHAR
