What About You

What About You

  1. Coming Soon

I was inspired to write “What about you” by the lack of respect people sometime show towards each other.

On a beautiful sunny southern California day back in 2003 in the early morning hours after my morning prayer, I had a song in my heart I just couldn’t shake and I had to write it out so-to-speak.

I started out writing the song title “What About You” in the music room of my home. The song idea I had in mind would focus on people coming together for a common cause, such as caring for the less fortunate.

Soon after those initial thoughts I decided since the day was so beautiful and peaceful, I would rather continue writing in the natural sunlight at a local park.
Sitting on a park bench I noticed across the park there was a homeless man with an old tin can in his hand. The homeless man appeared to be approaching everyone who walked by him to put money in his can.

It was devastating to watch such rejection from people who appeared to be insensitive to his needs.

As I continued watching and writing the lyrics that came to my mind, I remember thinking WOW! People are so quick to judge what they see on the outside and are not always sensitive to the heart, spirit and soul of another human being, those who look different and act different.

It appeared that no one took into considered that the man may have not eaten in several days. I believe he was judged by his dirty clothes, dirty hair, and shopping basket full of his entire belongings.

My heart cried out with much sadness, I remember hearing in my head, “will you take the time to care” and then “will you make a difference in the world“.

I made a decision at that moment to never stop caring for those who are hurting. I believe we should be held accountable for our actions, or lack of when it comes to reaching those who are clearly in deep trouble.
I believe that you and I can make a difference in this world by simply caring enough to extend our love and support to another human being. How much time does it take to care?
Although I began writing “What About You” in 2003 I am so thankful to God and blessed with another anointed and powerful writing machine by the name of Vince Berry II.

Vince is an established recording artist, lyricist, and music composer who has contributed to “What About You” song lyrics and created the melody in 2013.
I met Vince through his good friend music producer Tim “Bosky” Bullock, and I must add another magnificent musical production by Tim ‘Bosky” Bullock, Tim you have the Midas touch.

Special thanks to my dear husband, Robert Rosario who encouraged me to write and record “What About You”.

Song Lyrics

What About You

Written 2014
Susan F. Rosario & Vince Berry II

Verse #1

A child alone and hurting
The homeless on the street
A world mad at itself
Blinded by better them than me
But no one is listening any more
No one’s able to really see
But Not caring is the place
We can’t afford to meet again

Pre-Chorus

Instead of sitting around trying to figure out who’s to blame
Let’s decide right now, we’ll be the ones to change

Chorus

What about you
What about you
Would you take the time to care?
If you had nowhere to run to
What about you
What about you
Would you make a difference in the world?
If you really had everything to lose
What about you Oh
What about you Oh
What would you do?

Verse #2

Now Life is more than just a selfish road
Doing only what you want to
We need each other, we need each other yeah
It’s time to speak up, stand out and care for once
And in name of love, hope and peace
There’s something we can do today

Pre-Chorus

Instead of sitting around trying to figure out who’s to blame
Let’s decide right now, we’ll be the ones to change

Chorus

What about you
What about you
Would you take the time to care?
If you had nowhere to run to
What about you
What about you
Would you make a difference in the world?
If you really had everything to lose
What about you Oh
What about you Oh
What would you do?

Bridge

Cause life’s to short only get one chance to live one
But in this life you get a lot of time to give love
So after all is said and done, after all is said and done
Did you feel, did you care, did you love

Chorus

What about you
What about you
Would you take the time to care?
If you had nowhere to run to
What about you
What about you
Would you make a difference in the world?
If you really had everything to lose
What about you Oh
What about you Oh
What would you do?
