Just Like That

Just Like That

 

Written: 1983

Writers: David Jenneson, Alan Hovden.

Status: Recorded by Terry Jacks

Genre and Style: Pop

Comments: Dave: Just Like That is one of the catchiest songs we ever wrote. Simple and joyous, it has an insistent guitar line that skips forward like a stone across the water. Sadly, when it was rearranged and produced by Terry Jacks it was slowed to nearly half tempo. It lost its appealing excitement and instead lurched forward into melodrama, the guitar line becoming heavy and odious. Nevertheless in its original form it remains a solid hit.

I

Touched you with fascination

You

Returned the invitation

Just like that

 

Now it begins

Falling again

End over end

 

Come on, come on

Is this imagination?

I’ve waited so long

Now the moment’s coming fast

Just like that

 

I

Had not anticipated

You

Would be easily persuaded

Just like that

 

My head’s in a spin

Out on a limb

Falling again

 

You can’t stop it once it once it starts

It reaches out and grabs you by the heart

Just like that that.

 

Come on, come on

Is this imagination?

I’ve waited so long

Now the moment’s coming fast

Just like that.

Just like that

Just like that.
