BandAlternativeRock

Finish the Day honors the alt-rock tradition with clever songwriting, creative use of machinery, and time-honored studio techniques. There is a classic pop backbone but with alt rock sensibility.

Biography

In the studio, Finish the Day is the vehicle of the songwriter, singer, multi-instumentalist Jud. There's a need, and urge, in me to make music. It's there all the time, when I'm at home, when I'm at work, all the time. I just feel it, a need to make sounds, to make a rhythm, a pattern. There's a song going that tells me something about myself, or about others. It's a gift to let music "tune" your day. And when I finish the day, and my other responsibilities are gone, that's when I try to turn the music into something I can share with others, in the studio.

Lyrics

Poets Say

Written By: Finish the Day /Judson Pollock

When you love someone
nothing much is certain
if you speak the truth, to a fine degree
if fear erased, the meaning and the purpose
there's no mistake , your love is all to me
Have I told you
that you are still my ocean
Have I told you
that you can be my sea
And I give you my singular devotion
Have I told you, that you are still the answer,
You are still the answer to my dreams
Poets say, poets say, that love won't heal
Poets say, poets say that love won't heal

If you take a chance
love might be awaiting
If you play it safe, you will never know this pain
You will soon find out, there's no more speculating
You must have some faith, and the flowers bloom againHave I told you
that you are still my ocean
Have I told you
that you can be my sea
And I give you my singular devotion
Have I told you, that you are still the answer,
You are still the answer to my dreams
Poets say, poets say, that love won't heal
Poets say, poets say that love won't heal

And I still believe, I still believe, that in nothing but you and me

Poets say, poets say, that love won't heal
Poets say, poets say that love won't heal, heal me
