Happy Groundhog Day

The trouble with weather forecasting is
that it's right too often for us to ignore it
and wrong too often for us to rely on it.

 - Patrick Young

Groundhog Day 2015: Punxsutawney Phil calls for six more weeks of winter; Staten Island Chuck calls for an early spring!


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_in_the_Shadows_of_Love:

"Standing in the Shadows of Love" is a 1966 hit single recorded by the Four Tops for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song is one of the most well-known Motown tunes of the 1960s. A direct follow-up to the #1 hit "Reach Out I'll Be There" (even featuring a similar musical arrangement), "Standing in the Shadows of Love" reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967. It is ranked #464 on Rolling Stone 's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Standing in the Shadows of Love

Written by
Holland–Dozier–Holland:

Brian Holland (b. 15 Feb 1941), Lamont Dozier (b. 16 June 1941), and Edward Holland, Jr. (b. 30 Oct 1939)
 

Recorded by The Four Tops, 1966


Standing in the shadows of love
Waitin' for the heartaches to come
Can't you see me standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come
I'd run but there's no where to go
'Cause heartaches will follow me I know
Without your love, the love I need
It's the beginning of the end for me
'Cause you've taken away all me reasons for livin'
When you pushed aside all the love I've been giving
Now wait a minute
Didn't I teach you right, didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could, didn't I?
So don't you leave me standin' in the shadow of love
I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come
Don't you see me standing in the shadow of love
Just tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come

All alone I'll desperately be
With misery my only company
Come today, in fact come tomorrow
Sorrow, I ain't got nothin' but sorrow
Don't your conscience bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I've done for you
Now hold a minute
Gave you all the love I had, didn't I?
When you needed me I was there, now wasn't I?
(Standing in the shadows of love
Gettin' ready for the heartaches to come)
I've tried not to cry out loud
No gal you ain't gonna help me now
What did I do to cause all this grief
Now what'd I say to make you want to leave
Now wait a minute
I gave my heart and soul to you, didn't I?
Now didn't I always treat you good, didn't I?
I'm Standing in the shadows of love
I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come
Hope to see you standing in the shadows of love
Tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come
Standing in the shadows of... [Fade]
