Sunday Sleep In ~ “For All We Know” ~ Chet Baker

Totally complicated, totally magical man.

Chet did this last concert in Tokyo just before he died. He seem to be able to put himself together as if it was his last chance to grasp the spotlight he once had so brightly.

In a way I guess it was.

Strange because what had held him down for so long finally ended this tortured yet beyond talented soul. He needed something that for us his music doctored…our stress.

The words in this song rang so true sadly for Chet.

“So love me tonight tomorrow was made for some
Tomorrow may never come for all we know”…

…But we can’t forget him and our love affair continues.

So many people covered this song but none could do it as tenderly as a Chet Baker. That is who he was and why we still want to hear him…

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 might only be a dream
We come and we go
Like the ripples, like the ripples in the 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
