The Shadow Of Another Man

Chorus

Here I stand, in THE SHADOW OF ANOTHER MAN
Just wanted her to stay
Can't believe she's gone away
Look at me, the image of a broken man
All my fears came true
Can't get over losing you

Verse 1

Asked myself, why'd she have to go?
Lonely hours, how I miss her so
Got so close but she pulled away
Seemed so right but, she just couldn't stay

Chorus

And, here I stand, in THE SHADOW OF ANOTHER MAN
Just wanted her to stay
Can't believe she's gone away
Won't you, look at me, the image of a broken man
All my fears came true
Can't get over losing you

Bridge

Always knew my chances from the start
But, I'd roll the dice, I'd risk a broken heart
Tried so hard to do the best I can
But, I just can't escape, THE SHADOW OF ANOTHER MAN
(INST)

Verse 2

Thoughts of you just won't let me be
Restless nights, haunted memories
I see your face, I can't help but stare
I reach for you but, you're not really there

Chorus

And here I stand, in THE SHADOW OF ANOTHER MAN
Just wanted you to stay...(please baby)
Can't believe you've gone away
Tell me, can't you see, this image of a broken man
All my fears came true
Can't get over losing you

Outro

Lost in THE SHADOW OF ANOTHER MAN
I can't get over losing you
