LYRICS Things have gotten scary lately. people sounding off... if you know what i mean. this talk is getting crazy. I want you to remember that your friends are listening too. if you see what i mean. you could hurt somebody. (Chorus) Mark my words. just mark my words. So many wanting mercy lately... they need a helping hand if you want to succeed we've got to work together. I hope you will remember that the world is watching too. if you want to proceed... you can help somebody. (Chorus) Mark my words. i want you to mark my words. i want you to mark my words. please mark my words. (Bridge) I never could imagine living in a selfish world... where no one cared about forgotten souls. the time has come for everyone to reach out to their friends and find some common ground to make a stand... reach out! (Chorus) Mark my words. please my words. i want you to mark my words. i want you to mark my words. please my words. mark my words. i want you to mark my words. please mark my words. ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS Hiding in the shadows of the world... seven billion countless souls. hoping that their god will hear their prayers. hoping for respite. i know, i know... you tell me that he has mysterious ways. but i find it kind of strange that you praise such evil men and you throw the rest away. (Chorus) Can you find it in you? do you have it in you? the spirit of the lord. can you find it in you? do you have it in you? or is it just a passing phase? Did you not understand the word? when he said the rich will cry... looking for the path to kingdom's door. fit the needle's eye... i know, i know. they tell you that they didn't know his way, then they try to claim the fifth. will they find the judgement fair? cause justice will be swift. (Chorus) Can you find it in you? do you have it in you? the spirit of the lord. can you find it in you? do you have it in you? or is it just a passing phase? ©2019 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS (Chorus) What are we doing to keep them safe and sound? why are you here if you're not duty bound? what are we doing so they won't be afraid? what are we doing to keep them safe? Mystify...butterflies. hanging upside down on the bars. xbox...ps4 it's my birthday...it's my birthday! red light...green light hide n seek, don't you peek til i leave i want you grow up. i want you to live a long long life. (Chorus) What are we doing to keep them safe and sound? why are you here if you're not duty bound? what are we doing so they won't be afraid? what are we doing to keep them safe? Honor roll...in control. working so hard to meet your goal. lunch box...mac n cheese it's my best day...it's my best day graduate...don't be late. raise your hand to answer...don't hesitate i want you grow up. i want you to live a long long life. (Chorus) What are we doing to keep them safe and sound? why are you here if you're not duty bound? what are we doing so they won't be afraid? what are we doing to keep them safe? what are we doing to keep them safe? ©2022 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS I see the water tower rising up to meet the sky in this tiny texas town that i call home. I've been coming back more often cause my dad just passed away. we promised mom she'd never be alone. (Chorus) but the memories come back. the pain is always on track. nothing much has been changed. every time that i come home it feels the same. I went to high school here and soon i learned a lesson why. my path was never going to let me stay. My closest friend helped me find my talent and my truth, then cosmic forces took my time away. (Chorus) but the memories come back. the pain is always on track. nothing much has been changed. and every time that i come home it feels the same. Everything is the same... every time that i come home. Every time that i come home. ©2021 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS (Verse 1) I was going down a lonely highway, destination still unknown. when i came upon a crossroad and i had to make a choice. like the scarecrow from the wizard of oz i stood still for way too long. should i use my brain or use my heart? it was time to move along. should i use my brain or use my heart? it was time to write my songs. (Chorus) just stop talking and start walking just stop talking and keep walking (Verse 2) I was chatting with a girl from nashville. she said come to tennessee. she was the devil at the crossroad promising a world of fame...notoriety. i had another girl in texas waiting for me. who was wanting me for my love. should i use my brain or use my heart? i knew she was the one. should i use my brain or use my heart? i was thinking way too much. (Chorus) just stop talking and start walking. just stop talking and start walking. (Bridge) We've been walking down a lonely minstrel road... the journey of our lives, passing crossroad after crossroad along the way. we will never know for sure if every path was going to be our fate. with every tragedy and destiny to face... we face it everyday. (Verse 3) If you're going down a lonely highway destination still unknown, you may come upon a crossroad and you'll have to make a choice. like the tinman from the wizard of oz, you might be rusty and alone. should you use your brain or find your heart? you might have to leave your home. should you use your brain or find your heart? you might have to come back home. just stop talking and start walking. just stop talking and keep walking. just stop talking and start walking. ©2022 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS (Verse) You're standing all alone with the weight of the world above hanging like a heavy chain. Does it feel like no one cares? but you feel their eyes on you... wondering what you're going to do. (Pre-Chorus) You pray for a sign to guide you. so much on your mind. and now i'm asking you... (Chorus) Can you say goodbye to the life you have inside you? can you really say goodbye to the child you have inside of you? (Verse) Do you wonder what would be if this spark of life was real? filling out your life with love. No one knows the truth, how this happened in your life. only you can show the way. (Pre-Chorus) You pray for a sign to guide you. so much on your mind. and now i'm asking you... (Chorus) Can you say goodbye to the life you have inside you? can you really say goodbye to the life that lives inside of you? (Bridge) It all seems far away. if you choose you can escape. but we're here to help you now. we're here to share the life. we're here to raise the light. and now i'm asking you... (Chorus) Can you say goodbye to the life you have inside you? Can you really say goodbye to the child you have inside of you? Can you say goodbye to the life you have inside you? Can you really say goodbye to the life that lives inside of you? ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS I've been thinking about us. thinking i might have messed up. i let you go in an instant. now i find you so distant. I've been thinking about you. wondering if there is someone who understood what you wanted. now my life is so haunted. I've been thinking about us. thinking i should have fessed up. shared with you every feeling. instead i left your heart reeling. I've been thinking about you. wondering if there is someone new. who makes you feel like you're special. i was the one who was mental. i let you go in an instant. i let you go in an instant. i let you go in an instant. i let you go in an instant. I've been thinking about us. thinking i might have messed up. i let you go in an instant. now i find you so distant. I've been thinking about us. I've been thinking about us. ©2018 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

I'm asking you... I'm asking you to join me in this fight. i'm asking you to stand for what is right.
