A Fin d'Annee Sentiment

Nina Simone: For All We Know, 1961

For all we know
We may never meet again
Before we go
Make this moment live again
We won't say goodbye
Until the last minute
I'll hold out my hand
And my heart will be in it
For all we know
This may only be a dream
We come and we go
Like the ripples in a stream
So baby, love me, love me tonight
Tomorrow was made for some
Oh, but tomorrow
But tomorrow may never, never come
For all we know
Yes, tomorrow may never, never come
For all we know

- words:Sam M. Lewis;music: J. Fred Coots (Coots also wrote the music for Santa Claus is Coming to Town.) That's Nina's longtime collaborator Al Schackman on guitar. For All We Know is the first song they ever played together, back in '57. Bobby Hamilton drums and Chris White provides bass. The same lineup played at Newport in '60. Since the song was her set closer, what better way to say goodbye to '06. Best to you.
