Got A Hold On Me

from by The Britannicas

/

about

Written and sung by Herb is the effervescent title track and is indeed the definitive Britannicas track; crunchy and jangly guitars, soaring vocals and shimmering tambourine not unlike the Smithereens at their best.

lyrics

______________________________________________

yeah how things look and how they sound
and how to change what's allowed
the first words that were spoken in some time
out on a limb at the top of the tree
why didn't you pick me
you held back knowing everything

something's got a hold on me
yeah something's got a hold on me

what are you goin' to do with me
i wouldn't take back anything
and the less you say the clearer things become
at the surface at the boiling point
the listener didn't disappoint
and i wouldn't take back anything

something's got a hold on me
yeah something's got a hold on me

you sat right down to cross your legs
and said don't lose track of the simple things
yeah simple things

what are you goin' to do with me
i wouldn't take back anything
and the less you say the clearer things become
out on a limb at the top of the tree
why didn't you pick me
you held back knowing everything

something's got a hold on me
yeah something's got a hold on me
got a hold on me
