about

Recorded at Groove Box Studios in Detroit, this is a one-hour session recorded straight through with no breaks and no re-takes! This live session is an energy packed set with all original songs written by Emilio Basa.

There is a mixture of old and new releases. Many of the old releases have a new breath of life. Adding a full band has definitely changed the dynamics of the old songs.

The band consists of Emilio Basa on guitar / vocals, Tony LoDuca on drums, Chris Albert on Bass, Maurice "Myestro" O'Neal on keys and Israel Ali on lead guitar.

Track Name: Obsession
You're in my head when I wake
You're in my head all damn day
And when I lay down to sleep
You're the only one
You're the only one that I dream

Cause I watch every step when you walk
I love the way you talk
You're in my every waking thought

Oh I have a little confession
You're more than my crush
You're my damn obsession
My damn obsession x2
You're my damn
Damn obsession x2

I'm in my bed staring at the ceiling
Trying to decipher what is this exactly that I'm feeling
Why am I such a mess?
Why do I obsess?
I ask myself why
Why do you drive me so wild?

Cause I watch every step when you walk
I love the way you talk
You're in my every waking thought

Oh I have a little confession
You're more than my crush
You're my damn obsession
My damn obsession x2
You're my damn
Damn obsession x2

Got to get you out of my mind
Got to get the thought of you out of my mind
I'm such a fool
I'm such a fool
I think I've fallen for you

Cause I watch every step when you walk
I love the way you talk
You're in my every waking thought

Oh I have a little confession
You're more than my crush
You're my damn obsession
My damn obsession x2
You're my damn
Damn obsession x2
Track Name: You're the One
Let me tell you how I feel
Now that I know that you're the real deal
aw, baby you shake me
Just don't break me when I hear your footsteps
Speechless with every breath

It's easy as 1-2-3
Like learning your A-B-C's
Oh darling let me be
What you want not what you need
What you want not what you need

Let me be the dawn to your sunrise
Like the fire in your eyes you've got me mesmerized
Take a step back let me show you where it's at
You're the one I've been looking for

It's easy as 1-2-3
Like learning your A-B-C's
Oh darling let me be
What you want not what you need
What you want not what you need

Well I’ve been thinking about you that’s all I seem to do
Every time I turn my head there you are
You’re my elevation my muse my revelation
My saving grace without you I lost faith

It's easy as 1-2-3
Like learning your A-B-C's
Oh darling let me be
What you want not what you need cause you’re the one
Said you’re the one
darling you’re the one
Said you’re the one that I need
Track Name: Can't You See
Well baby baby baby
I’m just sitting by myself
Calm cool collected mess that I am
But darlin’ darlin’ darlin’
I’m fearing every step
Cause something in my body’s changing
I feel in my bones
I hear in the tone of my voice now fading
I feel in my chest
This constant burning stress gonna take me under

Can’t you see
You’re the one that’s driving me crazy
Can’t you tell
When I’m around you I’m not myself

I said Oh oh
oh oh I adore you so
But you’ll never know this love below
It’s so out of control oh oh oh

I’m filled with such desire
It feels like I’m on fire
Can’t let you get away
Cause this elation is so rare
I hardly ever care about my heart’s love affairs
I’m tied up in knots
Hands behind my back you ought to let me go
It’s not your fault you’re fine
Head to toe you are divine
You’re one of a kind

Can’t you see
I’m wrapped in green and dying of envy
of anyone
who has the chance to bask in your sun

I said Oh oh
oh oh I adore you so
But you’ll never know this love below
It’s so out of control oh oh oh

Can’t you see
You’re the one that’s driving me crazy
Can’t you tell
When I’m around you I’m not myself
Track Name: For the First Time
I want it all and nothing less
I’ve hit a wall in my loneliness
I can’t talk I’m such a mess
I’m losing the battle between me and myself

I’m looking for a deeper love
help me rise above
Shed my skin
brand new born again

It’s your face that I’m looking for
It’s your taste that I’m craving more
but I can’t place the lock on the door
I’m sick and tired of pacing
please show your face and name cause

I’ve been waiting for so long
and I keep pressing on
I can’t take no cause I’ve lived the other side
I’m waiting patiently
I’m dying to see your eyes for the first time

I always thought I’d be happy alone
I set the beat to my own drum
I’ll walk the summer night
Watch the winter lights
Capture a sunrise
I didn’t need anyone by my side

But that time is spent
That old life’s for rent
There’s no looking back
There’s no reason to pretend

That it’s your face that I’m looking for
It’s your taste that I’m craving more
but I can’t place the lock on the door
I’m sick and tired of pacing
please show your face and name cause

I’ve been waiting for so long
and I keep pressing on
I can’t take no cause I’ve lived the other side
I’m waiting patiently
I’m dying to see your eyes for the first time

I always thought I’d be happy alone
I set the beat to my own drum
I’ll walk the summer night
Watch the winter lights
Capture a sunrise
I didn’t need anyone by my side
Track Name: Euphoria
I don’t know where I’m going
All I know is I’m after you
I’ll chase you down the sands of time
I’ll climb the highest point of no return

She makes me fall to my feet
She makes me weak I cannot speak
Take me to

Euphoria
Euphoria

I can’t seem to hide anything from your eyes
I’m twisted I’m turning
For you I’m burning
You strip me down to the core

She makes me fall to my feet
She makes me weak I cannot speak
Take me to

Euphoria
Euphoria

You’re amazing so amazing
Oh Lord the things you do
Track Name: Hanging Heart
Release my hanging heart
Before I'm too bruised to see what you really are
Tortured and scarred
Lo and behold
I saw the signs
I watched them unfold
But I still took you in
And I treated you like gold

We tried we tried
God knows we put up a fight
But we lied we lied
When we said this wouldn't change the friendship side
Cause things will never be the same
We're walking in uncharted plains
Can we both just agree
Well this isn't worth the pain

Oh it's over
God knows it's over
I just want to move forward
Can we just please move forward?
I'll never forget this
There's not one moment of this that I regret
But I must protect my hanging heart
Before I'm too bruised
To see what you really are
Tortured and scarred
Lo and behold
I saw the signs
I watched them unfold
But I still took you in
And I treated you like gold
Track Name: Broken Halo
I don't want to see you go
Please don't go down that road
Baby baby please would you stay?
I feel some luck coming my way
What will I do
Where will I go
I'm stuck here like a dog without a bone
A fallen angel I will be
All alone begging God please

I'm a broken halo
On a broken railroad
I'm a broken halo
On a broken railroad

Help me get back on my feet
I'm crushed right down to my knees
I tell the truth
I tell no lies
Please don't take away my sunshine
Cause if you go the night will stay
My heaven will be so far away
A fallen angel I will be
All alone on my knees

I'm a broken halo
On a broken railroad
I'm a broken halo
On a broken railroad
