"Standing In The Shadows Of Love" as written by and Janis Ian....
I’ve been standing in the shadows of love
Hiding from the sun up above
Wondering if my heart
would ever feel the spark
and say - I’ve finally had enough
I’ve been standing in the shadows of love

I built a wall of the stones I’d swallowed
Stones of fear and pride
I built it tall so no one could follow
and bother me inside
I lived my life in that wall’s shade
I hid behind the games I played
but now it’s time to make my getaway

Chorus

I used to have such a mean reputation
I was cold and cruel
When I walked into a new situation
I knew just what to do
I thought this world was full of fools
Except for me, who could play it cool
I played cold, I almost froze
until I met you

Chorus
