walking with a friend today didn't know what I should do or say lost someone she really loved thought her life was all done I don’t know I don't know what it’s all about I don’t know I don't know what it is all about Thinking about a girl from school didn't know the Golden Rule talking ‘bout all her friends going where she shouldn’t’ve been I don’t know I don't know what it’s all about I don’t know I don't know what it is all about Feeling a little sad about life & my fellow man and the “it’s all about me” a little love might be the key I don’t know I don't know what it’s all about I don’t know I don't know what it is all about I don’t know I don't know I don’t know I don't know

A crow calls from the rafter moon shone from the sky A chill came through the yard …. didn’t wonder why howl came from the mountain branch fell from the tree A wind blew across the drive… it came for you and me Is it just one of those nights Will the dawn shed some light It’s the way the dice plays and how the band rolls On a night……. To end all nights Dog bays in the darkness stone rolls down the hill A car door slams in the distance have I lost my will? Sound of steps on pavement smell of fire in the road Time for you to think now see what you might know Is it just one of those nights Will the dawn shed some light It’s the way the dice plays and how the band rolls On a night……. To end all nights Is it just one of those nights Will the dawn shed some light It’s the way the dice plays and how the band rolls On a night……. To end all nights On a night……. To end all nights On a night……. To end all nights On a night……. To end all nights

When I dream I see you in a house We don’t speak just wander around I look for you I call for you I wonder where you are I wonder where you are I roam through these rooms familiar but not real are you coming soon I’ll be right here I look for you I call for you I wonder where you are I wonder where you are do you know I’m here or where we’ll meet when darkness comes when I’m fast asleep I look for you I call for you I wonder where you are I wonder where you are I look for you I call for you I wonder where you are I wonder where you are I wonder where you are I wonder where you are

I got 18 ways to tell my baby I love him 18 ways he knows that I care I got 18 ways to show my baby I need him Got 18 ways 18 ways 18 ways Check in see how he is sometime around noon I’m thinking of him and hope to see him soon I got 18 ways to tell my baby I love him 18 ways he knows that I care I got 18 ways to show my baby I need him Got 18 ways 18 ways 18 ways When the day is over I’ll take him in my arms And when it’s time to rest let him dream of the stars I always tell him I always show him that I care I got 18 ways to tell my baby I love him 18 ways he knows that I care I got 18 ways to show my baby I need him Got 18 ways 18 ways 18 ways Make him coffee in the morning Before I butter his toast you know I do it just right but I don’t want to boast

We met and connected right away spoke every other day Then realized if I don’t call don’t hear from you at all Thought we were sisters to the end But you act like my Bad boyfriend bad boyfriend When together we’re so tight but out of mind out of sight your attention seems short now I’m all hurt Thought we were sisters to the end But you act like my Bad boyfriend bad boyfriend You’ve become my bad boyfriend Bad so bad bad so bad Maybe I don’t have a clue I know I’ve done it too Life gets in the way Forgot to call what can I say

He tells her she is weak and he knows what’s best for her so much time has passed she can’t remember you’re not crazy and it’s time for you to go your future is outside that door don’t worry you’re stronger than before You can make it you can make it People know something’s off or that maybe, she’s just strange but she can’t tell them all she can’t find her voice you’re not crazy and it’s time for you to go your future is outside that door don’t worry you’re stronger than before You can make it you can make it

I hear a song I’m doing something else and in my head comes a melody It’s never the right time I’m sleeping or I’m driving must affect my chemistry Lost my song in the grocery store lost it all while getting more Lost my song in the grocery store left it all laying on the floor Like I have an idea for a hit song but I’m … busy now Where’s my notebook and a pencil gotta get it down before it’s gone Lost my song in the grocery store lost it all while getting more Lost my song in the grocery store left it all laying on the floor It was playing over and over in my head it was my masterpiece it was my masterpiece it was my masterpiece

about

Recorded at 1809 Studios in Macedon, NY
“This is what happened when I dusted off my lovely Fender Strat”

NOTA is an exploration of the human condition. Music that brings out all of our varied, complex emotions.  
On this album, Sharon Coates’ range of thought translates into songs that voice commentary on social issues as well as expressions of our most raw feelings. She keeps the listener wanting, coming back again and again, going deeper, connecting with the lyrics and instrumental relationships. 

“Radio” will grab and lift you up, 
“Wonder Why” will launch you into a passage of discovery, 
“Hey Man” is a response to the #metoo movement
“What If” will pull on your heart strings, and
“I Lost It” is a relatable & funny tune about songwriting!

You might think you don’t need a thing, but you do. Just come in, let yourself feel, get hooked.
