I saw a photograph it quickly took me back cause it was so long ago that i saw you. I can't remember why i can't remember how we could have changed so much since i saw you. (Chorus) And i'm missing my yesterdays. yes i'm missing my yesterdays. Do you remember when do you remember how we survived all the madness around us. it wasn't easy then it isn't easy now but still i think about what's behind us. (Chorus) And i'm missing my yesterdays. yes i'm missing my yesterdays. ©2019 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Homeless 03:18
G GM7sus2/F# He's standing on a corner. he's holding up a sign. Em that says he lost his job and he lost his peace of mind. . G GM7sus2/F# He's standing on a corner. he's hoping you can find Em a heart full of compassion if you could be so kind. . (Chorus) C D You may not want to believe him. Bm Em you may not even care. C but you've got to admit... A7sus4add6 it's a bit unnerving to see a homeless man. . She's standing on a corner. she's holding up a sign. that says she lost her family and the home she left behind. . She's standing on a corner. her hope is so sublime. she'll take what you can give her. she will bless you every time. . (Chorus) You may not want to believe her. and you may not even care. but you've got to admit... it's a bit unnerving to see a homeless woman. . (Bridge) Am D G You wonder how things could change so drastically. GM7sus2/F# Em you could be weak and you could be strong. Am C A7sus4add6 but sometimes life causes you to rearrange dramatically. you could be right and you could be wrong. . (Lead) G GM7sus2/F# Em G GM7sus2/F# Em . He's standing on a corner. he's holding up a sign. that says he's very hungry. could you spare an extra dime? . (Chorus) You may not want to believe him. and you may not even care. but you've got to admit... it's a bit unnerving to see a homeless man. yes, you've got to admit... it's a bit unnerving to be a homeless man. . I'm standing on a corner. i'm holding up a sign that says you must be ready cause life turns on a dime. . ©2011 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Living in poverty. every thing he sees nothing but misery. he tries to kill the pain. he tries to kill the pain. (Chorus) No one believes no one believes the honest man. No one believes no one believes no one. No one believes no one believes the honest man. No one believes no one believes no one. He writes a song for you. nothing you have to do. just listen to his words. he's got a lot to say. he's got a lot to say. (Chorus) (Bridge) The truth be damned. you can't have it. can't trust your hands. you can't take it. you take a stand. you must shake it. he implores you. he has warned you. (Chorus) No one believes no one. ©2018 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

So many nights i see you in my dreams. so many nights i don't know what it means. (Chorus) You could have been my queen of hearts. you could have played the only part in my play. but now, you're just a memory. So many nights you called me to your arms. so many nights i fell for all your charms. (Chorus) So many nights you made me so afraid. so many nights you turned and walked away. (Chorus) So many nights i see you in my dreams. so many nights i don't know what it means. (Chorus) ©2010 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

I would do most anything. i would do most anything. just to see a sunrise with you. just to see a sunrise with you. I would do most anything. i would do most anything. just to see a sunset with you. just to see a sunset with you. I would do most anything. i would do most anything. just to see a full moon with you. just to see a full moon with you. (Bridge) Nobody knows how i'm feeling. nobody knows what i want to happen. only you know what i'm after. only you know... only you know what i'm feeling. I would do most anything. i would do most anything. just to see a shooting star with you. just to see a shooting star with you. (Bridge) Nobody knows how i'm feeling. nobody knows what i want to happen. only you know what i'm after. only you know... only you know what i'm feeling. ©2015 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

I saw you flying... flying like a bird. i saw you soar above the clouds. you never said a word.. about your life cause you were flying. and i am standing here alone wondering where to go. Can you hear my heart beat anxiously awaiting every day? can you hear my heart beat? and i am standing in the rain. i need your spark again. When I see you flying... flying like a bird. i see you soar above the clouds. you never say a word.. about your life cause you are flying. and i am standing here alone wondering where to go. where do i go? I don't know where i need to be. it's really getting hard to see. the road ahead is very long. i'm hoping i can be as strong as you. You leave a trail of light that's brighter than the sun. and i know i'm not the only one that needs to see you streak across the open sky to touch the rising sun. i want to see you fly again. Can you hear my heart beat anxiously awaiting every day? can you hear my heart beat? and i am standing in the rain. i need your spark again. I don't know where i need to be. it's really getting hard to see. the road ahead is very long. Can you hear my heart beat? Can you hear my heart beat? ©2019 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Every Time 03:41
I know the reason why you don't believe in love. i know the reason why it's him you're thinkin of. (chorus) Every time i try to get too close to you. every time i try to make a move on you. every time you find a reason why every time you pull away from my life. Every time i try to get too close to you. every time i try to make a move on you. every time you find another way. every time you try to pull away from me. I know the reason why. i see it in your eyes. i know the reason why you can't apologize. (chorus) (bridge) I've been trying to make you understand that i'm always here for you everyday (darling, don't you know) i've been trying to make you understand there is no one else for me but you. (lead) (chorus) I know the reason why you don't believe in love. I know the reason why you don't believe in love. ©2019 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

I'm talking to the universe. it tells me that we have to get it back. the universe is telling me if we don't fix it now, there is no slack. (Chorus) Somewhere in this universe the word is coming down that we don't care at all about our world. Somewhere in this universe the word is coming down that we need help to turn our world around. I'm talking to the universe. it's telling me the judgement day is near. the universe is phishing me. it wants me to engage your fallen ear. (Chorus) The universe is calling me to sing about the crisis that is here. i'm listening to the universe i hope you're listening with an open ear. (Chorus) ©2018 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

You've taken my heart and made me want you. you've taken my heart and made me care. you've taken my heart to new dimensions. you've taken my heart and all the air. But i know it can never be. another altered reality. just like ancient mysteries, imagination rules the world for me. You've taken my heart and made me want you. you've taken my heart because you care. You've taken my heart and now i need you. you've taken my heart into your lair. you've taken my heart above the heavens. you've taken my heart i want to share. You've taken my heart and made me want you. you've taken my heart and made me care. You've taken my heart and made me want you. you've taken my heart because you care. You've taken my heart and made me want you. you've taken my heart and made me care. You've taken my heart and made me want you. you've taken my heart because you care. ©2019 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved
