(Chorus) Can you feel it? you need to let it go. if you feel it. you got to let it show. do you need it? i know you do. if you feel it let it shine on through. I was cruising through the city when i saw this lovely woman. she was moving along with confidence. she had the world in the palm of her hand. And i said, "lady, how do you do it? how do you look so fine?" and she said, "joe, it's very simple. you are what you feel and you feel what you are." (Chorus) Can you feel it? you need to let it go. if you feel it. you've got to let it show. do you need it? i know you do. if you feel it let it shine on through. We were playing at a party and she was dancing on fire. she was moving along to a steady beat. she had the rhythm and soul and her feet. And i said, "lady, how do you do it? how do you move so fine?" and she said, "joe, it's very simple. you are what you feel and you feel what you are."

I was thinking about you this morning. you were always around when i needed someone... when i was down and disillusioned. (Chorus) Now i'm singing this song for you cause i want the world to know that i couldn't have made it without you. I was thinking about you this morning. to a time when we were young and so afraid... when dad got burned and mom was gone. (Chorus) Now i'm singing this song for you cause i want the world to know that i couldn't have made it without you. (Bridge) You never questioned my reasons. you always gave me all of your time. i hope someday i can repay you. i really love you, i want you to know. I was thinking about you this morning. you and your baby give me a reason to live... a reason to breathe. (Chorus) I'm singing this song for you cause i want the world to know that i couldn't have made it without you. I couldn't have made it without you. ©1984 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Children Of The Age Frightened and all alone, scattered throughout the city... children without a home...no one to believe. Children of the age, a generation, remnants of the instant man. trying hard to find the questions they don't understand. (Chorus) Children...the children so lonely and afraid. children...the children victims of tomorrow...they are children of the age. Looking for dreams to hold. always a dream of laughter. learning to stand the cold and live day to day. Children of the age, a generation, escaping to survive the night. trying hard to find the answer in yesterday's light. (Chorus) (Bridge) How can your understand something you've never had? enduring all the lies... why can't your cry? (Chorus) ©Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Seems that I have lost something. love that gave this life meaning. but when I let the world turn me, that's when I felt I lost something. (Chorus) I am lost without your love. nothing else can make it up. all the world can never fill the stormy seas that you set still. Seems that I have lost something. life which made it worth living. but when I let the world seize me. that's when I felt I'd lost something. (Chorus) Seems that I have lost something. love that gave this life meaning. but when I let the world turn me that's when I felt I lost something. Seems that I have lost something. Seems that I have lost something. Seems that I have lost something. ©1984 Joe Basquez

(Chorus) Out of control! situation is out of hand! out of control! i really want to understand. Well, he was just a little boy when his daddy left home for good. everybody kept telling him it was better for the neighborhood. He was only 10 years old, on the verge of 23. caught between a make believe world and the lessons of reality. (Chorus) Out of control! situation is out of hand! out of control! i really want to understand. He became a troubled man but he finally left the neighborhood with the memories of his youth and a story made in hollywood. He was only 43 when he took the power in his hand. he pushed the button on the world cause he never tried to understand. (Chorus) Out of control! situation is out of hand! out of control! i really want to understand. (Bridge) You've heard this story but don't you worry this hasn't happened yet. and it won't happen if you will listen and teach your children well. Dont let it get... (Chorus) Out of control! situation is out of hand! out of control! i really want to understand. ©1984 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved
