Living Above Your Head
Jay & The Americans Lyrics

Seems so strange, you're putting me through changes
Baby, I can't believe you're not the same sweet girl that I once knew
But baby, the change has come about and it don't look too good on you
It seems so strange, you're putting me through changes
Baby, you've started doin' things you should not be doin'

Livin' above your head, girl; you're comin' on way too strong
You're livin' above your head, girl, and something has got to go wrong
Baby, don't think that I don't know you're runnin' out with other guys
And baby, though it hurts me so, you know that I'm still hypnotized
Don't let my pride kill all the love inside of me
Baby, you've started doin' things you should not be doin'



(repeat chorus and fade)

One of my all-time faves. Everything just works - great pop song that should have got wider expore. Wonderful harmonies, soaring vocals, great orchestration, fabulous complex strings ... and, of course, amazing Jay Black vocals.

This is the track we heard most in Britain, courtesy of the pirate radio stations moored off the coast! I loved the Billboard.
