Whitesnake – Standing In The Shadow lyrics

(coverdale)

I'm running away from a feeling
Hiding my face in the sand
I'm scared to love and lose again
I don't know if I can
I don't need the night to remind me
Where the lonely people go
I try running away from love
But, my heart keeps telling me no

Too many people
Standing in the shadow of love
Too many people
Are standing in the shadow
Standing in the shadow of love

I've been living so long in the darkness
I know the cold embrace of the night,
When morning comes I close my eyes
Cause I'm blinded with the light
Taking a chance of a feeling
Is like waiting for a flower to grow,
So I stand at the crossroad, baby,
Wondering which way to go

Too many people
Standing in the shadow of love
Too many people
Are standing in the shadow.
Standing in the shadow of love

I'm running away from a feeling,
Hiding my face in the sand
I'm scared to love and lose again
I don't know if I can
I don't need the night to remind me
Where the lonely people go
I try running away from love
But, my heart keeps telling me no

Too many people
Standing in the shadow of love,
Too many people
Are standing in the shadow,
Standing in the shadow of love...
