Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

You, you are my friend – I’ll love you after all is said and done
‘Cause no one takes my heart Like laughter in the dark with you
So come take my hand, every body’s hand, Feeling true and that you understand my life.
And even though I know you’re leaving, I just can’t believe it’s happening now
I’m sure I’ll work it out some how But I don’t want to Cause you can’t make me
There will be a gaping hold In Your Absence.

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Look, you’re here – It’s inside the sphere – Open up your heart – Look through from here

You’ve got to Open up Your Heart. Look through the fear – Inside the sphere
You’ll never guess what’s happening – You’ll always find it’s freer than mankind
You’ve got to Open up Your Heart.

20. Smoke Break
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Some days I feel really overwhelmed. I feel like all I can do is lay down and turn on the tv.
There are so many channels (come on pass it to me, it’s not fair, I want a hit)
And most of the time The channels stress me out
If I’m not hearing about violence or death, I’m being sold religion left and right
Or they want me to buy their cereal because I’m this certain kind of soccor mom.
I only fit in with TLC, Lifetime or Bravo it seems, And even though stations can be tedious,
I need to start taking my smoke break outdoors, Where silence bids me peace of mind and tranquility. Sometimes I just need a place where I can hear myself think
And know that I, myself, am indeed, the only one doing the thinking!

Where, where did I put my keys? Please help me understand, where I am, And what is going on in my life
What is up your sleeve? Oh please, please help me understand What channel I should be tuning in on
On my own life? well Nevermind … Nevermind …

Oh God, the stars outside are so bright tonight! Which one do I choose? I can barely tell them all apart!
Where do I start from here? Where do I start, falling apart from here? I can feel the stars deceiving me …
I can feel the stars deceiving me …

21. Snowflake
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Like a snowflake, I am slowly falling through windy currents, how they stir so deep inside of me.
Like a handshake, the deal was made before it started; startled me into a frenzy of neverending.
Never will I come, never will I – Never will I land – Never will I come to the place where the story ends
Never here, never there, everywhere

Am I melting? Is that what dying feels like? Somehow I can see and feel and breathe the air around me.
This is scary and I am sure I am getting somewhere now because the wind is slowing down.
What will I become? Who will I be? I can’t see the light now Everything is going to black
Where did that wind go? Give it back! Let me go, let me go ….

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Everybody said there’d be a time you’d lose control you’ve always got to get it on your own.
On your own …
