about

One Day E.P. captures a sincere moment in a sarcastic world. It shares humor and sentiment while exhibiting Logan's "...gift for writing lyrics that probe the soul," (Jack McNally, co-founder of McNally Smith College of Music). The E.P. was produced by pianist Louis Durra, who accompanies Heftel on the tracks. It was recorded in one session with Talley Sherwood (Leonard Cohen, Béla Fleck).

Track Name: One Day
What if I'd done what I said I would do?
What if I'd spent less time just looking through?
What if I'd gotten up early and gone back to school?
Or spent each Sunday in the same big room?

If I had one day
One day to live
I'd be on my way
To the time that I'd given up to boredom and gain
If I had one day
I'd forget to blame
I'd be on my way
To the times that I'd given up for fiction and names
If I had one day, just one day

What if I'd gone where I said I would go?
If I'd kept my word, would anyone know?
Or if I'd gotten in early and answered the phone?
Or read through the chapters before on my own?

If I had one day
One day to live
I'd be on my way
To the time that I'd given up to
boredom and gain
If I had one day
I'd be the one to blame
what could I say
For the time spent complaining just when things went my way?
If I had just one day

If the fear to act ever holds you back
then there is no help
Is it better to play it safe
and spend the rest of your days
asking, 'did I rob myself?'

Or is it better to fail
As you probably will
Like countless nameless did before
Or worse yet, success,
catastrophe at best
Then no answer is ever only yours

If I had one day
One day to live
I'd be on my way
To the time that I'd given up for boredom and gain
If I had one day
I'd do it all the same
what could I say?
To the times that I'd given up for fiction and names
If I had just one day
Track Name: Sarah
Sarah's dreaming but she just can't sleep
There's too much weighing on her mind
Why's such a young heart in so deep? What's she trying to find?

She says, "I'm not the kind of person to let go when I could."
She can't talk to anyone, she won't be understood

She leaves her phone on the bed and her dresser full
Driving with the music on she sings to the road

I've been thinking about what I've seen
I've been meaning to forget some things
I'm not talking to the one I need
And I've been dreaming about coming clean

It's funny how hard feelings fade
Into a sympathy you can't explain Sarah's wishing she knew what to say To make up for the mistakes she's made

She's not the kind of person to hold on when she should

She leaves her phone on the bed and her dresser full
Driving with the music on she sings to the road

I've been thinking about what I've seen
I've been meaning to forget some things
I'm not talking to the one I need
And I've been dreaming about coming clean
Track Name: Love's An Endless War
I used to be so sure
I used to be so bold
I used to be so certain
For no reason I suppose

Now I wonder about me and about you and about those that stood in condescending contra-pose just
waiting for the fall,
waiting for it all to come crashing down

It may be that love's an endless war
I'll be waiting for you,
waiting for this time we're living for
We may be off and on some more
Be it days or years between us
when we're back it's like before

We used to be so pure
We used to feel so old
Had it all planned out,
thirty years out from
this life we would not own

Now I wonder about me and about you and about why we're so far off yet it all seems right
I'm breathing through it all,
checking for your call
I hope you know I'm there, even if
they're saying

chorus

Even when we didn't talk about it
I was thinking I'd forget about it but
Deep down, I've found
it really isn't all that complicated
The time spent without you got me
thinking more about what we'd created
And it's the good times now when I think of you
Track Name: Sentiment Of Winter
Young lady you're a fighter
Young beauty you're a queen
You've taught me of desire
You've left me questioning

Young darling I believed you
So young baby go be free
Just believe when I say someday,
You're gonna fall in love with me

Ah, the sentiment of winter early on when days are slow
Even well into December I would try and let you go
Someday, you're gonna fall in love with me

You're memory is like an island
Just beyond the seagull's range
Faint in shape on the horizon
Invisible on cloudy days

Ah, the sentiment of winter early on when days are slow
Even well into December I would try and let you go
Someday, you're gonna fall in love with me

Young sugar I'm a sinner
I've been lonely for too long
I am merely a beginner
Maybe one day I will be strong

So young lady, I forgive you
Yes, time is such a mystery
When you get to where you're going
I think you'll find you're missing me

Ah, the sentiment of winter early on when days are slow
Even well into December I would try and let you go
Someday, you're gonna fall in love with me

And now I'm walking through the rainfall as I call into the street
Here at midnight I am standing, soaking dark and cold and deep Someday, you're gonna fall in love with me
Track Name: North Star
Twenty years to this day
Since this ship set sail
We've been following the night
Just to hear it's tales
It's been a long time
Since I have seen a map
If there was a place that we were trying to go we'd be far off track

There's not a cloud
Up in the sky tonight
There's no land within
Our watchman's sight
The sea is calm and it sparkles
With the stars' reflected light
We've not even one candle lit
For the moon is unbelievably bright

No one has kept track of how far we've gone
And it's been too long to recount all we've done
Truth be told right now I'm not even sure where we are
We'll know which side of the world when we can see the North Star

As the stars in the East
Disappear to pink
I listen to the wind meet my breath
As I think of what more is out there
That we haven't yet seen
I could spend the rest of my life
In a new part of the sea

No one has kept track of how far we've gone
And it's been too long to recount all we've done
Truth be told right now I'm not even sure where we are
We'll know which side of the world when we can see the North Star
