LYRICS Four young men looking for adventure trying to find the golden ring. four young men crossing the atlantic with the future on their wings. We all knew they were something special... it was something in their syle. screaming kids...rock and roll music. it was life in black and white. We all let our hair down, it was cool. we all played the air guitar. i want to hold your hand in school. wanna hold your hand. Four young men wanting to discover what the world was all about. setting trends...changing our direction. there was never any doubt. Searching for the answers with a dove. thinking there was hope for peace. all you need is love. all you need is love. ©1986 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Maybe 03:52
LYRICS I heard you talking in your sleep. i listened very closely...could not understand. i managed to hear you say, "i love you, baby!" So i closed my eyes and faded away. into your dream...i had to hold your hand. i tried to tell you then, "i'm here beside you." (Chorus) Maybe... Maybe it's the way you smile at me. maybe it's the way we touch. maybe it's the time you save for me. that makes me want to love you so much. You heard me talking in your dream. you opened your eyes and you looked around. you reached for me and then you said, "i love you, baby!" So we touched, we kissed and we loved. all through the night, our world was only us. i'm sure you know by now, "i'm here beside you." (Chorus) Maybe it's the way you smile at me. maybe it's the way we touch. maybe it's the time you save for me. that makes me want to love you so much. Maybe... Maybe it's the way you smile at me. maybe it's the way we touch. maybe it's the time you save for me. that makes me want to love you so much. Maybe it's the way you smile at me. maybe it's the way we touch. maybe it's the time you save for me. that makes me want to love you so much. ©1984 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Illusions 03:11
LYRICS Always felt i knew exactly what my life would be. tried so hard to keep my path on track to destiny. Never thought my dreams would be like castles in the sand. always thought i'd live my life as planned. (Chorus) Confusion...never felt that way. delusions...complicate my fate. intrusions...always in my life. illusions...burning up my time. All my life i swear i saw the writing on the wall. from the age of twelve i knew i heard my future call. It was if the giver let me see tomorrow's pain. closed my eyes pretended not to notice. (Chorus) Confusion...never felt that way. delusions...complicate my fate. intrusions...always in my life. illusions...burning up my time. How do you feel about your life? what can you do to make it right? How do you feel about your life? what can you do to make it right? How do you feel about your life? what can you do to make it right? (Chorus) Confusion...never felt that way. delusions...complicate my fate. intrusions...always in my life. illusions...burning up my time. ©2009 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS I know you're mine cause you've been trying so hard to change. I know your love is waiting for me in every way. I never said it would be easy. i never tried to hide my passion. i made it clear what mattered to me. it's like a hop to the moon... a hop to the moon. I know you're mine cause you've been trying so hard to change. I know your love is waiting for me in every way. I always tried to make you happy. please understand it matters to me. i never said it would be easy. it's like a hop to the moon... a hop to the moon. I know you're mine cause you've been trying so hard to change. I know your love is waiting for me in every way. ©2004 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Nacio un hombre cholo. vivio en felicidad. le gustavan los boleros. amor con una estrella. ©2004 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

about

I will be adding my older songwriting and recorded tracks that have languished in the archives. Most of these were recorded on analog 4 and 8 track machines. Using my current Digital Audio Workstations, I will breathe some new life into a remix. I hope you enjoy the tracks.
