Thirty (2010)

1. Thirty
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

the hooplah’s over it’s said and done
another year and I’ll be 31

you said I’d be there now
(if you want it you can get it you don’t have to sweat it
you can figure out a way to get it on your own)
said I’d be there by now
(if you want it you can get it you don’t have to sweat it
you can figure out a way to get it on your own)
so what comes next?
so what comes next?

and I been thinkin’ about my life
about the tears and blood I’ve shed

you said I’d be there now
(if you want it you can get it you don’t have to sweat it
you can figure out a way to get it on your own)
said I’d be there by now
(if you want it you can get it you don’t have to sweat it
you can figure out a way to get it on your own)
so what comes next?
so what comes next?

the hooplah’s over it’s said and done
another year and I’ll be 31

you said I’d be there now
(if you want it you can get it you don’t have to sweat it
you can figure out a way to get it on your own)
said I’d be there by now
(if you want it you can get it you don’t have to sweat it
you can figure out a way to get it on your own)
so what comes next?

you said I’d be there now, said I’d be there by now
so what comes next? so what comes next?

3. Yes, We Love
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

who’s the “we” in “yes, we can?”
who’s a part of this revolution?
I was there and you were there
and here we are, so what comes next?

when will we share
love, kids, and marriage?
tell me if i’m wrong, but aren’t we all
a part of one great family?

don’t you think it’s funny how we separate ourselves
to try and try and understand
but see, the problem is, we tear our lives apart
and we will never understand
so why don’t you just take my hand
and see if we can

love love love love love love love love
love love love love love love love love

who’s a part of “yes, we can?”
who’s a part of this revolution?
tell me if I’m wrong, but aren’t we all
a part of one great family?

4. Party (Like it’s 2012)
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

they say the end of days are comin near Christmas of 2012
well I say we put on our party hats and bring out the ring in our bells

we’re gonna’ party like it’s 2012
you can forget about a heaven or hell
’cause when it’s over, you can’t really tell
we’re gonna’ party like it’s two-thousand-

if all we know is somehow changin’
let’s enjoy the time that we have
live for today, mend your mistakes
break out your best champagne

we’re gonna’ party like it’s 2012
you can forget about a heaven or hell
’cause when it’s over, you can’t really tell
we’re gonna’ party like it’s two-thousand-

if my country stays this way and my kids’ kids will have to pay
I think I can speak for the rest we are ready for what is next

we’re gonna’ party like it’s 2012
you can forget about a heaven or hell
’cause when it’s over, you can’t really tell
we’re gonna’ party like it’s two-thousand-

we’re gonna’ party like it’s 2012
you can forget about a heaven or hell
’cause when it’s over, you can’t really tell
we’re gonna’ party like it’s 2012

5. Stricken
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

time does not bring relief – you have all lied
who told me time would ease me of my pain?
I miss him in the weeping of the rain
I want him at the shrinking of the tide
the old snows melt from ev’ry mountain side
and last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane
but last year’s bitter loving must remain
heaped on my heart and my old thoughts abide
there are a hundred places where I fear to go
so with his memory they bring and entering with relief
some quiet place where never fell his foot or shown his face
I say, there is no memory of him here
and so stricken, so remembering him

6. You (LIVE)
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

you are so beautiful from the inside out
you inspire the change within me, oh yeah, oh yeah
and I hope you’ll stay to see me grow, to see me grow

you are my hero, strong with heart full of gold
you inspire the change within me, oh yeah, oh yeah
and I hope you’ll stay to lead me on and on

it’s not the things you say and do
it’s just the time I spend with you
oh, so lead me on, deal me in to what you’re into, oh yeah
’cause you inspire the change within me, oh yeah, oh yeah
and I hope you’ll stay to love me more and more and more

I don’t care, whichever way, lovers or just good ole’ friends
