1. Recover

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

You just don't know when to stop

creeps upon you when you stop

until you slow right down

feel the world come in and stop

 

so much time to sit and think

think about how to wink

and give a smile that got them on

the kind of smile that turned them on

 

I used to play him on the stage

the one who stole the freakin' show

this was a place of love

that I called home

where I belong

 

find a way to spend my mind

same old tricks with a bottle and a dime

is just the thing I need to come undone, unwind

 

I gotta' demon chasin' me

from right inside of me

and all this time to think and all this time to think

what will become of him?

what will become of me?

 

(how will I shine? how will I shine? how will I shine?)

 

When I get up, I check my face

to see if anything is new.

Go to bed, close my eyes and pray for a full recovery.

 

I used to play him on the stage

the one who stole the freakin' show

This was a place of love that I called home

Where I belonged

2. Prayer

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Dear God, thank you for this life.

Thank you for my family,

my home and my mind.

 

Dear God, thank you for the laughs.

Thank you for the memories of

times that I had.

 

I know nothing’s guaranteed;

That is why I make the most of everything.

 

For I cannot always see what’s right in front of me

And I cannot always hear Your voice through all my fears

But one thing that I know is clear …

I know nothing’s guaranteed;

 

That is why I make the most of everything.

For I cannot always see what’s right in front of me

And I cannot always hear Your voice through all my fears

But one thing that I know is clear …

I’m still here.

I’m still here.

I’m still here.

3. You

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 watch me grow, to watch 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 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 into what you’re into …

 

‘Cause you inspire the change within me, oh yeah …

And I hope you’ll stay to lead me on and watch me grow.

4. Real

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

You’ll have to leave this place sooner or later

And that’s okay; you’ve had terrific adventures.

I know it’s hard not to feel sad, losing your loved ones,

But listen, it’s not all that bad, not all that bad …

 

Don’t question if you are real – you know the answer.

One little boy that I know will never forget you,

So let’s say goodbye

And let’s do it in style

Take my hand and we’ll just fly right outta’ here ...

 

(right outta’ here, nothin’ to fear, just you and me,

‘cause we are real, ‘cause we can feel)

 

I might feel sad, I might be scared, but that’s cause I’m real.

I think I’m ready, I think I’m ready, I know I’m ready ‘cause we are real,

‘Cause we can feel.

5. Love
