The Last Day

KajaGooGoo – The Last Day (from Gone to the Moon Album)

KajaGooGoo

The Last Day is track 7 on the 2008 album ‘Gone to the Moon’.  It features Nick Beggs on vocals and bass, Steve Askew on guitars, Stuart Croxford Neale on keyboards and Jonathan Atkinson on drums.  The track also features a guest appearance on flute from Anna Conti, wife of Steve Askew.

Song meanings are something I think we can all quite easily miss.  It’s very easy to dance to a pop record and then realise that the subtle words were about war or a political message.

One of the reasons I love the track ‘The Last Day’ so much is that the message rings out loud and clear to me and I find it to be such a thought provoking message.

The chorus sums this up for me, especially the middle two lines:

“Stay with me lay till the last day of your life
live every day till the last day of your life
how will you feel on the last day of your life
love every day till the last day of your life”

It makes me imagine the very last day of life and someone asking if you think you’ve lived your life to the maximum you possibly could have.  How you feel on the last day of your life would very much depend on whether you had actually indeed came close to living every day till the last day of your life.  If you do get to the last day and can confidently feel good about what you’ve packed into your life, that can only be a wonderful feeling as by then, it’s a little too late to put things right.

Time is precious, enjoy it to the full and please do listen to the track and follow the fantastic lyrics beneath.

Intro
Last day, stay with me
lay with me till the last day

Verse
I know of secrets you are keeping
your heart is never as it seems
I lay and watch you while you’re sleeping
and walk unbridled in your dreams

Don’t wake up, just keep dreaming

Chorus
Stay with me lay till the last day of your life
live every day till the last day of your life
how will you feel on the last day of your life
love every day till the last day of your life

Verse
Ever present at your waking
perceive the day I touch your hair
in every single undertaking
I am with you standing there

So don’t look back, just keep breathing

Chorus
Live every day like the last day of your life
love every day till the last day of your life
how will you feel on the last day of your life
Stay with me lay till the last day of your life

Stay with me till the last day
lay with me till the last day
stay with me till the last day
lay with me till the last day

Chorus
Live every day like the last day of your life
love every day till the last day of your life
how will you feel on the last day of your life
Stay with me lay till the last day of your life

    It’s a great song. For me, Beggsy’s vocals sound like George Michael on this song (and I mean that as a good thing!)

    It’s a wonderful track. One of the best on the album. I agree with the George Michael comment also………..a point I seem to remember raising on the official forum at the time.

    Good selection Kajafax!
