A Passing Fancy - I'm Losing Tonight (1967)

Having released less than a dozen songs in their short span, this Toronto based band was originally known as The Dimensions. At the heart of the group were musical leader Jay Telfer and spiritual/business leader Brian Price. When Price left the band to concentrate on his studies, the remaining members of the group struggled to carry on. Later, management would ask Telfer to step down from the band, and the band folded. Telfer continued in music with a solo career, while Price practiced dentistry and eventually opened over one hundred dental offices. The group reunited once in 1988.

This song was the A-side of the group’s first single, released in February 1967. Locally, it reached number twenty-two. In November 1968, the song was again released on a self-titled album featuring both original songs and songs by new members of the group put together by management after the original members had all parted ways.

Lyrics:

Don’t ever bring me down
Or slap my face
Don’t ever cause me pain
You’ll be replaced

I let you go so far
But now it’s gotta stop
I know just where you are
So you should cut it out
I’m really mad about your lies
But then I’m mad about your eyes

I’m losin tonight
I’m losin the fight
It seems, with you, I’m never right
Alright

You tease me constantly
You know my mind
You never leave me be
That’s so unkind

You’re takin’ full advantage of my weakest point
You’ve got me doin’ everything that you avoid
You know I hate to see you cry
But then I hate to hear you lie

I’m losin’ tonight
I’m losin’ the fight
It seems, with you, I’m never right
Sock it to me, now

(Alright)

C’mon

Don’t ever bring me down
Or slap my face
Don’t ever cause me pain
Don’t be replaced

I let you go so far
But now it’s gotta stop
I know just where you are
So you should cut it out
I’m really mad about your lies
But then I’m mad about your eyes

I’m losin’ tonight
I’m losin’ the fight
It seems, with you, I’m never right
Alright
