This Is It
Jay & The Americans Lyrics

(Ah ah ah) She doesn't love me anymore
(Ah ah ah) She dosn't want my kisses
I know that this is it for me
(Ah ah ah) She doesn't want me anymore
(Ah ah ah) Somehow my touch just misses
I know that this is it for me

(So turn on the sun) I need the sunlight
(Ah ah ah) Need its glow to make things bright
Without her, every day is black as night
(And bring out the moon) I need the moonlight
(Ah ah ah) Brighter than it's ever shone
She's gone and I am so alone

(But she cried for me) When she cried for me
(Yes she cried for me) Yes she cried for me
(And she) wo wo oh oh (could've laid down and died for me)

(Ah ah ah) She doesn't love me anymore
(Ah ah ah) She dosn't want my kisses
I know that this is it for me

(This is it) Goodbye
(This is it) and so long, my little girl
(This is it) and I know, I know, I know
(This is it) That this is it for me

How can a song like this not chart. A beautiful song

Rhonda Sorrow

Can't believe this was not a hit! It's absolutely beautiful!

As a guy from a younger generation, I've always had an appreciation for older music. I had started listening to Jay and the Americans sometime back in the early 90's when I had heard their hits on an oldies station. I soon bought one of their greatest hits albums and coincidentally, "This is it" stuck out as my favorite. The way Jay's voice carries and the range delivers such emotional vibrance. I love to sing this song when I'm on my own, sometimes after a failed relationship. Thank you Jay Traynor for all your talent. Your voice is a gift to all of us that will be enjoyed at least until the twilight of my days and hopefully, long after. Rest in Peace!

Jay told me that this was his favorite song and couldn't believe that it wasn't a chart buster....RIP My Friend.........

Terry Gaskey

Thank for including this masterpiece on the Come a little bit closer album otherwise I would never have heard it. Wasn’t until social media that I found out that it was Jay Traynor singing lead

Miss K

Kenny said the same thing .... @kennyvplanet9


I wonder if this was only released regionally as opposed to nationally because there is no way this song couldn't have been a hit with wide exposure and all the talent invested into the song. Thank you for sharing and RIP Mr. Traynor.


About the same time that this great song was being almost-totally ignored, Elvis Presley hit #1 with "Good Luck Charm". Where's the justice? Author!! Author!!! Thank you so much for posting this phenomenal song!

Ahhh THANKS!!! For some strange reason this is one of my favorite Jay & The Americans songs.
