6. Little Speckles on the TV Screen

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

What do you remember from

That fateful day of death and doom?

I remember bodies falling from the sky

Like tears of blue.

 

Did you see it?

Little Speckles On the TV Screen?

Are the Spirits

of the Towers --

Are they wondering --

 

Why we never seemed to learn?

A thing of hope and fear of amends.

Looking down from heaven,

Are they shaking heads and wringing hands?

 

Getting ready

For another

Major hate attack?

It’s no matter

If it happens again,

But when it comes

 

Back to haunt us.

Back to haunt us.

Back to haunt us again.

 

What’s your problem?

Don’t just sit there,

Get up on your feet!

See the problem?

Let’s go protest!

Get out on the streets!

 

When will we learn that war is wrong?

This global home of ours is sacred.

I’d have never dreamed that I would

Live in such a world of complacence.

7. Oldest Story Ever Told

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Children stolen from their beds

Yes the Boogeyman exists

Politicians lie and steal

Even when it means to kill

 

Flu that flies on wings of bloody birds

News that sucks you in with sexy words

There’s no sign when things will end

All the signs that things will end

 

So when that hurricane makes landfall,

Let it wash all our sins away

So when that hurricane makes landfall,

Let it wash all our sins away

 

God will take the seed of creatures all

Put them on a ship and close the door

We will start again some how

But that’s all She wrote for now

 

Someday this old place is gonna’ drown

All the way to Boulder, Colorado

The oldest story ever told

Possibly might be our last

 

So when that hurricane makes landfall,

Let it wash all our sins away

So when that hurricane makes landfall,

Let it wash all our sins away

And to God give our thanks today

8.  Home Again

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Guess it's time to go

Just want you to know

So glad to have been

There for you

 

Will they look at me

As a little thing

Will they see me as I am?

Something bigger than before?

 

I can barely

Keep from cryin'

My full hear out

Something's gotta give

 

When I am Home Again

What will it be like

In a place called Kansas?

 

In this small balloon

You are quickly vanishing

I will close my eyes

And hold my breath ...

 

Lift my heels and

Click, click, click three times

Tell myself it'll be just fine

Tell myself there's no place

Tell myself there's no place

Like home ...

 

Then I think of just what might be

Be in store for a girl like me

Shut my mouth and do as I'm told

Oh my gosh, I really don't know

If I can be

Alone again

With no friends

'Cept a dog named Toto ...

 

What's that, that I see?

Feels like I am falling

Seems like it will be

Hard to land

 

I can almost see

Aunt Em secretly

Weeping, not for little me

But crying for the life that she

Never really had

 

And Uncle Henry

Always so angry

Telling me how to act

And what I should be like

Not a little boy like

He was when he was my age

Maybe if I hope and pray

I can be the girl and boy he wanted

 

For I've sung with a lion

And I've dance with the tinman

I have traveled with a scarecrow

And I've saved their lives

 

So many times, don't you know?

9.  Leighlia

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Here comes Leighlia

Here comes Leighlia

Here comes Leighlia

 

She won't mind

Take her time

She's just fine

Ohhhh

 

Sweet and slow

She ain't up for nothin'

If she goes,

She goes out for something

 

Ahhhh, Ohhhh

 

Leighlia is here

Leighlia is here

Leighlia is here

 

And here is Leighlia.

Ahhhh Leighlia

Ooooooo Ohhhhhhh

 

She won't mind

Take her time

She's just fine

Ohhhh

 

When I first laid eyes upon her

Oh, I felt so honored

To be the luckiest guy to ever be with Leighlia.

 

Leighlia Ahhhhhh

Oooooooooooooo

 

She won't mind

Take her time

She's just fine

Ohhhh

10.  All I Want is You

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Seems like time flies when all your worries have begun to fall upon themselves.

Well, I've been workin' for my baby and I'm workin' just as hard as hell.

 

This little break can't come any sooner,

I've been counting up the days until I'll be restin' with my baby

And my baby's gonna' be my thrill.

 

Well, if it pleases the house, perhaps you won't mind if I --

 

Take these tears and throw 'em in a bucket 'cause I just don't give a

Fundamental Care

For the time is coming closer to another step to close the deal.

 

Let's get real; we all want the same things in life, if you please.

And we've been searchin' for eternity and only death provides the mean.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that I introduce to you --

 

The machine, the machine, the machine

Daily grind of life that tries to keep us from our nightly dreams.

And I've been dreamin' of my baby and my baby's been a'dreamin' of me.

 

I'm clockin' out!

But only for a moment so I get the time to check out the view.

When I see my baby walkin' and I think that all I want is you

 

Well, all I want, all I've ever wanted ...

 

All I've wanted is you

All I've wanted is you

All I want is you

All I want is you
