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
