Pamela Polland Session

 

 

 

I am going through old files and cleaning out my hard drives and found a few recordings I had forgotten about. This song “Last Day” is by former Joe Cocker / Mad Dogs & Englishmen vocalist Pamela Polland. This unfortunately was a remote session, but with a stellar cast of players. I am honored to have been asked to play on this one.

 

Music: Pamela Polland
Lyrics: Hale Weitzman, Pamela Polland,

lyrics

Last Day (Pamela Polland, Hale Weitzman, Bobby Parrs)

Where would I go on my last day
If I knew it was my time to go?
What would I do, what would I say?
Would the past still tug like a boat in tow?

Chorus:
What if this was my last day?
So many dreams to yet come true
Whatʻs left undone will have to stay
If thereʻs anything else to do

Any day could be the last one
Itʻs just so hard to believe
But if Iʻm not going to live forever
What do I want to achieve?

Chorus:
What if this was my last day? (So many dreams to come)
So many dreams to yet come true (Whateverʻs left undone)
Whatʻs left undone will have to stay (If thereʻs anything else)
If thereʻs anything else to do

Bridge:
Iʻm not waiting for the final ending
When my heart has so much more to give
Iʻm not going to waste it, Iʻm not going to waste it
Iʻm so grateful just to live………now.

What if this was my last day? (So many dreams to come)
So many dreams to yet come true (Whateverʻs left undone)
Whatʻs left undone will have to stay (If thereʻs anything else)
If thereʻs anything else to do
If thereʻs anything else to do
