Eddie Rabbitt – “Suspicions”

Eddie Rabbitt was an amazing singer & songwriter. He poured his heart  and soul into his music, so gracefully. I heard this song a few days ago while driving to the store, and was thinking to myself how much this man is missed, and how in my late teens and early 20s his music was a big part of my life. I hope you all will enjoy this song!

“Suspicions” is a country music song. It was originally recorded and released as a single in 1979 by Eddie Rabbitt from his album Loveline; his version was a Number One hit on the Billboard country music chart and a Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. The song saw renewed popularity in 2007-08, when Tim McGraw recorded and released a cover version on his album Let It Go.

The song was the first single from Rabbitt’s 1979 album Loveline, “Suspicions” reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart in August. “Suspicions” also continued Rabbitt’s rise as a crossover artist; peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100, it was his highest peak on the pop chart to that time. It was also a Top 10 Adult Contemporary hit on the charts of both the U.S. and Canada.

Rabbitt said that he wrote the song “in five minutes in the studio during a lunch break.

“Suspicions” was named Broadcast Music Incorporated Song of the Year a year later.

Song Lyrics –

I’m so glad that I met you, baby.
And I’m so proud when we walk down the street.
And I know it’s crazy to worry like I do.
But I get this feelin’ that I’m losing you.

I get these suspicions even though
I know that you love me, baby,
and I really shouldn’t feel this way.
Suspicions, I can’t help it you’re just so good lookin’
I’m afraid somebody’s gonna steal you away from me.

When I go out to a party with you
You always turn every head in the room.
And I just know what’s on every man’s mind
I try to fight it, but it gets me sometimes.

I get these suspicions even though
I know that you love me, baby,
and I really shouldn’t feel this way.
Suspicions, I can’t help it you’re just so good lookin’
I’m afraid somebody’s gonna steal you away from me.

When I’m with you, I feel so satisfied.
The way you touch me when you lay by my side.
And that look you get in your eyes when we love
Makes me hate myself for what I’m thinkin’ of.

I get these suspicions even though
I know that you love me, baby,
and I really shouldn’t feel this way.
Suspicions, I can’t help it you’re just so good lookin’
I’m afraid somebody’s gonna steal you away from me.

I get these suspicions even though
I know that you love me, baby,
and I really shouldn’t feel this way.
Suspicions, I can’t help it you’re just so good lookin’
I’m afraid somebody’s gonna steal you away from me.
