LEFT IN THE SHADOWS
I worked my fingers to the bone
She said that I was rough,
I gave her money to spend
That wasn't good enough.
I told her she looked great
But she said I wasn't true,
All she seemed to want
Was to make me blue.
My life I had pledged
All my love I give,
But still this woman
Doesn't want me to live.
She wants me in the shadows
She don't want me to have no sun,
Wants me out of the way
Don't want me to have any fun.
She loves the limelight
She likes to be adored,
Fair enough she's a pretty woman
The guys look and never get bored.
I'm only doing what any guy would do
I'm working hard cause I love her so,
To give her the things she loves
She still doesn't appreciate me though.
She has brought me to my knees
I'm out in the ocean what can I do?
I'm lost I got this terrible feeling inside
She won't talk anymore, god I feel so blue.
