  • I'm Out Of Your Life
  • I'm Out Of Your Life (Instrumental)
Arnold Joseph a.k.a. Arnie's Love released I'm Out Of Your Life on Radar Records back in 1983 which went Top 10 in the US before Streetwave Records picked it up for a British release. Pure class, real music with mournful lyrics over a slow shuffle, strings, brass and even a harmonica solo. Produced and arranged by Eric Matthew (Sharon Redd and Betty Lavette). After a brief spell on Profile Records in 1986 Arnie disappeared which was a real shame. He is now recording Gospel music.

Sad act that I am, I noticed that the Instrumental is not the same format as the Vocal version. So what? Well, if you wanted to sing it karaoke style, it would make life difficult. Included in the rar file is my own lame attempt to reproduce the Karaoke Backing Track. The ending isn't quite right so you will have to improvise. I've transcribed the lyrics for those with a brave heart.

I'm Out Of Your Life
by K. Gold & M. Denne

Sometimes Baby, It gets so hard
I sit and watch the rain that falls in my back yard
Sometimes Baby, It seems to me
Our situation ain't what it used to be
Everywhere, I'm hearing people talking 'bout you Baby
And they don't mention me

I figure I'm out of your life now girl
I'm so far out of touch
I figure I'm out of your life now girl
And it's hurting me so much

I remember, You used to care
You always worried about which dress to wear
(Didn't ya girl)
I remember, A different girl
Who made me feel I meant something in this world
Everyday, I find I'm living more without you Baby
You got no time for me

I figure I'm out of your life now girl
I'm so far out of touch
I figure I'm out of your life now girl
And it's hurting me so much (so much)

(Harmonica break)

Everywhere
I'm hearing people talking bout you Baby
And they don't mention me

I figure I'm out of your life now girl
I'm so far out of touch
I figure I'm out of your life now girl
And it's hurting me so much

(Break)

It's making me, it's making me sad, so sad
It's hurting me, it's hurting so bad

Everyday,
I find I'm living more without you Baby
You got no time for me

I figure I'm out of your life now girl
I'm so far out of touch, (so far out of touch)
I figure I'm out of your life now girl
And it's hurting me so much (so much)

I figure I'm out of your life now girl
I'm so far out of touch,
Ooh Baby
I figure I'm out of your life now girl
And it's hurting me so much,
Oooooh Babyyyy, girrrrllll

Don't leave me girl,
All alone
I'm so far out of touch
I'm so far out of touch

I don't see ya
You don't call me
We don't even talk anymore

Please don't leave me
Don't leave me all alone
I love you
