I believe in what I write and sing. My vocal style is a cross between Dennis DeYoung and Steve Perry. In my songwriting - you can hear influences from Squeeze and Journey to Bread and Todd Rundgren. I like to write from all eras of music. From the 40's to today.

Biography

Warren Passaro has been writing and performing since 1980. For the first 12 years - he was in and out of different local acts. Some of these acts did very well while they were around.
As far as writing music is concerned - he 'lives to collaborate'. Writing songs is a passion, he feels, that will never die. He comes up with multiple melodies for one song within a 'train-ride' home from work. It's in his blood. When it comes to recording - he can lay a vocal track down in 1 - 2 takes.
Now he has taken his talent, ideas and energy - and has embarked on a new 'journey' - fulfilling a desire to enjoy new freedoms of expression. Together with the help of some lifelong friends/musicians - the technique has proven successful. Warren has appeared on Star Search 1990, New York-New Rock (Manhatten Cable) and has opened for Joe Lynn Turner, Zebra and Danger,Danger.

Lyrics

Talk You In, Talk Me Out

Written By: Warren Passaro

Amy is you dad home - he's got something for me.
But, if he's around now - what I want I can't see.
Can I take you out of here - take you to a freak show.
We can bump and grind dear - to where it leads we don't know.
That's not too important - if you want to cuddle.
I can feel the same way - somewhere in the middle.
I put cologne on for you - I like that dress your wearing.
Tell me does it matter - 'cause I don't think it's working.

Chorus:
I talk you in - you talk me out.
I'm facing north - you won't go south.
Is this what this loves all about.
I talk you in.
You talk me out.

Amy I can truly - respect your position.
You say you gonna save it - for the right condition.
I can give you my word - I would never leave you.
Take your love for granted - hurt you or deceive you.

Chorus

Do you want my love.
Do you want my ring.
My love is yours.
You've got it all and so much more.

Better Daze

Written By: Warren Passaro



How you gonna' feel good?
How you gonna' catch that high?
You've got to get a grip on yourself -
If you ever plan on being satisfied.

Still looking for that magic moment
The one you felt so long ago
Well, tell me how is this gonna' happen -
Now knowing everything that you know?!

CHORUS:
I'd like to hold your hand
Carry you to safer lands
Watching as you walk away
Heading on to Better Daze!

My daddy told me when I was younger
You've got to be strong inside
And, how those words they echo through me
How those words fill me up with pride

Still looking for that magic feeling
The one I had so long ago
But, tell me how is this gonna' happen
Now knowing everything that I know?!

CHORUS:
I'd like to hold your hand
Carry you to safer lands
Watching as you walk away
Heading on to Better Daze

SOLO

Better Daze

Yesterday Is Gone

Written By: Warren Passaro and Craig Higgins



Sometimes you feel like you love me
Some days you don't know the meaning of love
I never thought I deserved this at all

Weren't we the ideal couple?
A pretty picture thats gone up in flames
Where is that understanding now?

CHORUS:
Where will we be tomorrow
Hiding from pain with thoughts of yesterday
Oh - when, yesterday is gone
How can we face the future - knowing inside that we don't have too long?
Have too long!

Sometimes you say that you need me
I turn around and I find that you're gone
How could these feelings go so wrong?
Wasn't I the world in your eyes?
How can you leave me - just go your own way?
And, girl what will they say?

CHORUS:
Where will we be tomorrow
Hiding from pain with thoughts of yesterday
Oh - when yesterday is gone!
How can we face the future
Knowing inside that we don't have too long?
Too long...

SOLO

BRIDGE:
You - you are the air I'm breathing
You're mine - with every beat of my heart.

Repeat CHORUS
