"2012" as written by and Mary Beth Patterson Nathan Howdeshell....
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

You think you are invincible
When in fact you're powerless
You're missing the principal
You'll fear the loneliness
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

It's just like time has stopped
It's always someone's fault
Turn back the hands of the clock
I'll turn into a pillar of salt

A tragedy brings misery
Misery loves company
Company is misleading
I've made it this far
Without you
Without you
Without you

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

So quick to seal our fate
Give it a second chance
We'll hurry up and wait
Victims of circumstance

A tragedy brings misery
Misery loves company
Company is misleading
I've made it this far
Without you
Without you
(Without you)

My heart may never beat again baby
Or have you got the best of me
My heart may never beat again baby
Or have you got the best of me
My heart may never beat again baby
Or have you got the best of me
My heart may never beat again baby
Or have you got the best of me

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

You think you are invincible
You're missing the principal
You think you are invincible
You're missing the principal

A tragedy brings misery
Misery loves company
Company is misleading
I've made it this far
Without you
Without you
Without you
I've made it this far
Without you

    General CommentI think "It's just like time has stopped" is an important clue here as the title is 2012, but I am very curious about whom she is singing to.

    My InterpretationMaybe it's just because of my experience but it seems like she's not really into that person. It's when she says "victims of circumstance" and also "a tragedy brings misery and misery brings company". Seems like it was a previous failed relationship that got them together. So when she say's "my heart may never beat again" I'm not shure if she's talking to the actual person of the failed relationship or to the previous one. Anyway, I like to think of it like this :) Great song!
