​Stand In

This song is by Jim Reeves and appears on the album Gentleman Jim (RCA Victor) (1963).

I'm only a stand in
After all's said and done
I fought for your love
I thought I have won.

But I'm only a stand in
For somebody else
What a dreamer I've been
I'm just standing in.

I wondered if you know dear
That when you're in my arms.

Sometimes the name you whisper isn't mine
I've tried not to believe it
But in my heart I know
I've only been a stand in all the time.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm only a stand in
After all's said and done
I fought for your love
I thought I have won.

But I'm only a stand in
For somebody else
I thought I could win
What a dreamer I've been
I'm just standing in...
