LYRICS Time is flying by without a care. it reminds me of the special times we shared. time is flying by without regret. there is so much pain we never will forget. I remember every precious moment that we kissed inside my mind. i remember every passion of a fateful love we left behind. Time is flying by around my head. it is rushing past a stop sign that i bled. time is flying by...we can't pretend. when we were children, it was long and had no end. I remember sunday nights, we said our prayers. it helped our souls to keep. i remember midnight when the flag would wave and send us off to sleep. Time is flying by...it's spinning fast. all we have are memories of today that passed. time is flying by...it's not a meme. playing baseball wholly on a field of dreams. I remember ice cones full of coconut in paper cups of snow. i remember climbing texas hills around the hometown that i know. Time is flying by... ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

To Survive 02:58
LYRICS When you pull away... find a hiding place and it feels so safe. But it's not quite right cause it feels like life has just slipped away. (Chorus) Then you look inside yourself... find the magic on the shelf. take a dose of what you need to survive. When you feel the walls closing in on all memories now and then. There's a sacred door that you should explore to make you whole again. (Chorus) Then you look inside yourself... find the magic on the shelf. take a dose of what you need to survive. ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS It wasn't easy getting over you but somehow i survived. it took a long time to forget all the deception and the lies. Still i remember all the good times that we shared... that we shared. there were some special times i know you really cared... i know you really cared. It wasn't easy getting over you especially late at night. it wasn't easy to forget our conversations and the fights. there was a closeness there i know you couldn't hide... i know you couldn't hide. there was a little bit of truth when you told me that you tried... i know you tried. It wasn't easy getting over you but somehow i survived. it took a long time to forget all the deception and the lies. Still i remember all the good times that we shared... that we shared. there were some special times i know you really cared... i know you really cared. I'm getting over you. I'm getting over you. I'm getting over you. I'm getting over you. ©2013 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS Do you remember when we used to talk for hours on end? it was a simple time. i kept the notes you used to send. (Chorus) I promised you the world but things came crashing down. a rollercoaster ride to paradise. I want to take you there...i want to take you there. We had to move again so many memories to escape. and then we had a child... it changed our world or was it fate? (Chorus) I promised you the world but things came crashing down. a rollercoaster ride to paradise. (Bridge) When things got bad you always held your ground. and now you've turned my life around. Ooh... I want to take you there...i want to take you there. yeah...I want to take you there...i want to take you there. (Chorus) I promised you the world but things came tumbling down. a rollercoaster ride to paradise. Ooh...I want to take you there...i want to take you there. Yeah...I want to take you there...i want to take you there. Ooh...I want to take you there...i want to take you there. Yeah...I want to take you there...i want to take you there. Don't you know I want to take you there...i want to take you there. ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS (verse 1) She loves you but she hides it cause she's so afraid you'll run away. and that will be end of that. She thinks that with some time you'll finally come around to realize and that will be the start of that. (Chorus) She's always been there for you, but will you find the time to pull it through. she loves you but she's afraid to say that you're the only one. (verse 2) She loves you but she hates it when you shut her out and turn away. she is so turned off by that. She thinks that any day you'll finally figure out what matters most. and she'll be so turned on by that. (Chorus) She's always been there for you but will you make the time to pull it through. she loves you but she's afraid to say that you're the only one. (bridge) Do you know she spends her time waiting by the phone? do you know that all she thinks is you? every waking moment she is waiting by the phone. waiting for you... waiting for you. (verse 3) She loves you but she worries there will come a time when you will leave and she'll be so bummed out by that. She hopes that you will feel the beating of your heart and you will know that she is filled with joy by that. (Chorus) She's always been there for you but will you take the time to pull it through. she loves you but she's afraid to say that you're the only one. you love her but you're afraid to say that she's the only one. ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Eclipse 03:02
LYRICS (Chorus) Step back... you're in the way. you're blocking my view of the son. i really need to know. i need to know...i need to know Eclipse... you block the light. you hinder my view of the son. i really want to know. i really want to know...i want to know. (verse1) Who is this Christ you are following? it's not the one i know. you push your hate, you push your greed when you say you love him so. Just like Judas in the garden of life. you kiss him then you walk away with silver in your pocket and your ego complete. you crucify him all over again. (Chorus) Step back... you're in the way. you're blocking my view of the son. i really need to know. i need to know...i need to know Eclipse... you block the light. you hinder my view of the son. i really want to know. i really want to know...i want to know. (verse2) who is the beast you are following? the one seducing you? you think it's love, you think it's right. it's just another planted ruse. Money whores will always sell your soul. they kiss you and they walk away. with silver in their pockets and their egos complete. they crucify you all over again. (Chorus) Step back... you're in the way. you're blocking my view of the son. i really need to know. i need to know...i need to know Eclipse... you block the light. you hinder my view of the son. i really want to know. i really want to know...i want to know. ©2020 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS You, you, you. How do you change the world? how do you make a difference? you have to spread the word. and the word is hope... the word is peace... the word is love. (Chorus) It's up to you. you know it's up to you. it's up to you. it's up to you. How do you change yourself? how do you find the spirit ? you must believe the word. and the word is truth... the word is courage... the word is love. (Chorus) It's up to you. you know it's up to you. it's up to you. it's up to you. (Reciting The Beautitudes) How do you change the world? how do you make a difference? you have to spread the word. and the word is hope... the word is peace... the word is love. (Chorus) You know, it's up to you. it's up to you. it's up to you. ©2005 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

LYRICS When you hear his name all you have to do is think of him like he thinks of you. Send your heart to a special place so when he looks he will see your face. (Chorus) Hold him closer to your heart. even though you are worlds apart. you will find the magic stone. and you'll never be alone. When you hear his voice all you have to do is listen closely when he speaks to you. Send your soul to a special place. and he will be there with all your grace. (Chorus) Hold him closer to your heart. even though you are worlds apart. you will find the magic stone. and you'll never be alone. ©2019 Joe Basquez - All Rights Reserved

Do you ever wonder where the years went? It seems like only yesterday when we were in our 20s, enjoying life but living in a frenzy. Now we find ourselves many years later, thinking of all the years gone by.
