In My Imagination (Pamela Polland) I was riding on the children's train that takes us through the zoo And I saw somebody in the distance, and I thought that it was you So I came runnin' up to greet you and to be recognized too But then you slipped away from view, just like you always do. But in my imagination you were real and how you found me You came runnin' across that boundary, and then you threw your lovin' arms around me And I slipped into this dizzy spell like a spinnin' ferris wheel But in my imagination you were there and it was so real. And I try to know what's goin' on and tell myself no lies And then I'd think that you were behind me, and you'd take me by surprise But I've played this game some times before, and now I'm getting wise It's a daydream in disguise - that's all it is! Oh, but in my imagination you were real and how you found me You came runnin' across that boundary, and then you threw your lovin' arms around me And I slipped into this dizzy spell like a spinnin' ferris wheel But in my imagination, yes and in my imagination, Can you imagine what was in my imagination?

Out Of My Hands (Pamela Polland) "If things weren't the way they are", that's what you said to me "Then we would live together, yes, how happy we would be" Our life is like a maze and we could go crazy trying to get free. But it's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart It's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart. I think I should go back to my home town, it's not good for me to stay here Oh, I've tried to be strong, but I'm getting weaker each day here And life, well, it's like a maze and we could go crazy trying to get free. But it's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart It's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart. And it's out of my hands now, yes and it's good to know that you love me But it's out of my hands, but it's out of my hands,but it's out of my hands now But it's still in my heart.

Sing-a-Song Man (Pamela Polland) Listen everybody to the sing-a-song man He's takin' all the children to a sing-along land And he'll touch you with his voice - it's far reaching Cuz he's a soul soulful man (talkin' 'bout the sing-a-song man) Why don't you lookit everybody at the twinkle in his eye (lookit) Come on and lookit everybody cuz the twinkle doesn't lie (so look at it) He's gonna touch you with the truth - it's far reaching And he's a soul soulful man (talkin' 'bout the sing-a-song man) And here's what he's singin' now..... Whoa - whoa - yes I am Yes he's singin' now Whoa - whoa - yes I am Well, I'm a sing-a-song man Someday I'm gonna get me an old funky band (I been searchin') I'm gonna travel 'cross the country make it sing-along land (I'm gonna find it) All of the way from the Pacific Ocean straight on across to the Atlantic sand Just like the sing-a-song, I'd just like ta sing a song, man And we'll be singin' now..... Whoa - whoa - yes I am Everybody's singin'... Whoa - whoa - yes I am a- yes I am, a-yes I am!

When I Got Home (Pamela Polland) I was hoping when I got home there'd be a note that said you'd called There'd even be a number where I could reach you later on And of course, I would call you then, no matter how late I got in And you would be still sleeping, but you'd be so glad to hear from me Because you love me, you love me, you really love me Because you love me, because you love me........ But I guess that I stayed out to long, or maybe no one else was home To take the message down that you'd called And besides that, we've only met, and I hardly know ya yet Still, I get the feeling that you meant all those nice things you said. And that you love me, (because you love me), yes I believe it, Yes, I believe that you love me........ Oh, I really believe it, I know that you love me Won't you please come and see me, I know that you need me You love me........ I believe that you love me, yes, I believe it, I really believe that you love me...

Please Mr DJ 02:30
Please Mr. DJ (Pamela Polland) Please Mr. DJ, play me a song, Something romantic I can drift away on Oh, I'm not alone when I turn my radio on. Please Mr. DJ, play me a song, Something real happy so I can have fun Oh, I'm not alone when I turn my radio on. Monday through Friday I work hard all week But on Saturday morning, you comfort me, you comfort me With someone else's words, and someone else's voice Mr. DJ., speak to me by your careful choice The records you play don't interfere It's only you I hear.

Abalone Dream (Pamela Polland) Well, I woke up this morning, it was an abalone day I looked down at my magic ring, now, tell me what did it say? It said, "Pamela, let's go up to the mountain, let's find a little mountain stream And maybe we'll float down river in an abalone dream." So, I went up to magic mountain and I walked all the way Time didn't much matter, that's because time's got nothin' to say Whoa, I found a little tricklin' river, now, I've got no reason to lie I just built me a raft out of a make believe laugh, and I sailed off into the sky. Oh yes, I did float down river Oh yes, I did float down river Oh yes, I did float down river In an abalone dream When some folks get lonely, and some folks get sad I've got a simple song to make everybody glad When some folks get gloomy and they can't figure why I just get 'm to sing along and it makes everybody high High like the mountain that's above my home town High like the old days when we all sat around and Held hands and joined voices, and sang songs all night And got higher and higher in that good party life And we sang, come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin' Oh yes we sang, come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin' Come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin' Come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin'

The Rescuer 03:11
The Rescuer (Pamela Polland) Well, I heard somebody callin' out to me And they said, "won't you help me, won't you help me, please, Because I'm standin' here in the darkness, and I can hardly see And I need somebody to come and rescue me." Well, the night was hollow and the night was long But i could not tell where this man went wrong I had to find my way in the darkness, but I could hardly see I needed somebody to come and rescue me. Don't let your brother pull you into the Darkness What's the good of two men being lost in the night Reach out your loving hand and pull him back in to safety, man Don't go too far and step out of the Light, Or you might need a rescuer. Shine a little light, shine a little light in the darkness And help the blind to finally see If somebody's locked up, be a rescuer and go get the key!! Don't let your brother pull you into the Darkness What's the good of two men being lost in the night Reach out your loving hand and pull him back in to safety, man Don't go too far and step out of the Light, Or you might need a rescuer. Oh, yes you will! Now, now's the time to be a rescuer Now, now's the time to be a rescuer Don't, don'tcha get lost, or you might need a rescuer

The Dream 03:19
The Dream (For Karuna) (Pamela Polland) Me and Sister K., well, we danced till dawn, wrapped in some lovers' arms Danced into a dream, and the dream went on, after the dance was done We were in a garden, and they came to say that our time was almost through So, we went running, just to keep the dream alive We were keepin' the dream alive Me and Sister K, whose lovely name I'll just have to sing in some other song Dance into a dream and the dream's still going on and on and on and on But isn't dreaming just a way that we all make our fairy tales come true And even if it's just to keep the dream alive Let's keep the dream alive Me and Sister K., well, we danced till dawn, Danced, danced into a dream, and the dream's still going on, waiting for love to come While we all make our fairy tales come true Keeping the dream alive Let's keep the dream alive (Pamela whistles into the dream.......)

Texas 03:14
Texas (Pamela Polland) Texas, I hardly have seen you at all Just on cross-country flights And in traveling rock & roll shows Texas, I've seen you in some mighty strange places Once I even saw you in Colorado But Texas, I feel like I know you Though maybe not too well Wish I'd thought to get a silver dollar souvenier So, I could say, "well, I've been there." Once when I thought you were coming to take me I held my head high so the whole world could see Flying on the wings of my own expectations I lost sight of any plans that you had for me But listen, Texas, I feel like I know you Though maybe not too well Now you have gone, but the love lingers on And I sit at home with this song. Take me with you, Texas Please, take me with you....... I stayed up til dawn to watch the new world come on But all that came was this song.

about

After disbanding the Gentle Soul, Pamela went on to record two solo albums of completely original music for Columbia Records in the early 1970's. In a life-long tradition of surrounding herself with world-class talent, Pamela's first solo album was produced by George Daly and featured the likes of Nicky Hopkins on piano, a special guest appearance by the late Jimmy Spheeris and several cuts produced by Nashville's own Norbert Putman. This album is truly a musical journal of Pamela's personal life at that time.
