Kiss 03:27
KISS I can feel it from here Everybody but you can too I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe the time has come Just to do it Step to it Kiss the girl ~ When the moment’s right Kiss the girl ~ Don’t take all night Kiss the girl ~ When the moon is high Kiss the girl ~ Don’t need a reason why… Well, if he ain’t gonna make the move Ya gonna give up just like that? I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know what you’re waiting for Just to do it Step to it Kiss the boy ~ When the moment’s right Kiss the boy ~ Don’t take all night Kiss the boy ~ When the moon is high Kiss the boy ~ Don’t need a reason why…

Don’t Blame it on the City Years ago You swore the lights were shining brighter, now the city’s darker every single day And all them colors — from our luminescent youth Painted over, now everything is gray CHORUS: Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, baby But the lights they shine just like they — used to It’s just you’re no longer flying like a moth to the flame You’re crawling careful underground where they — can’t find you Don’t blame it on the city ‘Cause it ain’t her fault — it ain’t her fault (not this time) Don’t blame it on the city ‘Cause she gave you all you needed when you gave her all you had Don’t blame it on the city — this time All your old haunts Taken over by these strangers who don’t know the way that things here used to be And you’re alone there Sharing drinks with all these ghosts of people who never died, they all just moved away CHORUS REPEATS This is ain’t your city This ain’t my city But she breathes our life and if ya hold on tight You might not drown tonight You can try to tell her tale Understand her, but you’ll fail And the moment that you think you know She’ll take it all away... On your arrival You felt the torrents of the streets nearly knock you back to where you’d just begun But you stood upright Dusted off and looked upon chaos, said bring it on, but now you’re not so sure CHORUS REPEATS

Holiday 04:10
Holiday You wanna ride, well I got a place to go Don’t pack your bags, we’re just goin with the flow But you’ll forget me when I bring ya home When things are fine you don’t ever touch the phone Your life is good while I’m waitin’ all alone But when you’re needin an escape I’m here CHORUS: Don’t wanna be your holiday Anytime ya wanna get away Don’t wanna be your holiday We drink the late nights and chase them sunsets too Bottle of scotch and no one but me and you But am I ever gonna meet your friends You’d take me to the moon and back, ya swear When we’re together I’m like a millionaire But all I want is just your everyday CHORUS I know your laughter, you know the way I smile Late Sunday morning, you say: let’s stay a while But I can’t help but wonder if there’s more You wanna skip the meal, go to dessert But I wanna know if deep down inside ya hurt That’s when ya turn and say it’s time to go CHORUS

Outta Time 04:31
Right on Time Days been slippin’ away Had a thousand things to do You been hittin’ my phone… on the daily, but Boy, I ain’t got time for you CHORUS: Don’t go wasting my time ‘Cause I ain’t got much time to give Don’t go wasting my time You took my seconds and I wanna ‘em back (my minutes / my hours / five years / a lifetime) Don’t go drinking my wine ‘Cause I ain’t got much wine to give I work hard for my pay (yes, I do) and I Got big plans to live -- In a big house in the countryside A place I’ll call my own, so I Don’t need a boy -- getting in my way, sayin’ You’re sweet, but leave me alone CHORUS Don’t go stealing my heart ‘Cause I ain’t got much heart to give You say you’ll fill it back up, but if ya don’t It’s me I won’t forgive But the days seem to blur together When I’m with you You swear that time’s just a grand illusion, but I know Boy, that ain’t true CHORUS

Cassandra 04:47
CASSANDRA We were — lost in the light Drowning — deep in the vanities I was — ichin’ to leave That’s when your face appeared Two eyes, flat on a photograph But I felt — that you could see through me (yeah) CHORUS: Cassandra, he swiped you The wrong the way I liked you Cassandra, come back to me What could have been Had my old friend Just let us be — Was a slight of hand I don’t understand Why you’re not here with me — No use, I can’t forget Your words, though ya only left a few I knew — that between the lines (there was) An unwritten story of me and you In this plastic world where nothing’s ever true Our love would be the real kind — CHORUS Your shape, singed on my brain I search — faces on a crowded train Prayin’ — that you’ll appear My one — and only chance to fill This hole deep down inside of me Lost to — A flick of the wrist (yeah!) CHORUS Cassandra, he swiped you The wrong the way I liked you Cassandra, come back to me

LET'S MAKE IT A PARTY Takes a lot of nerve To stand up to The Man But do you dare look him straight in the eyes Say, do you wanna dance? 'Cause this fight ain't ever gonna stop, so... Let's make it a party You're a righteous girl For standing your ground But if you want to keep this war at bay You gotta bring along some friends 'Cause this fight ain't ever gonna stop, so... Let's make it a party It ain't easy, boy Carrying the light 'Cause it the dark is where the world will have its fun Than we don't stand a chance 'Cause this fight ain't ever gonna stop, so... Let's make it a party

New Love 04:50
NEW LOVE I don’t know need -- to meet her folks She don’t know -- all my jokes If you ask -- her middle name, I don’t know And that’s just fine… Every night -- we stay up late And drink wine -- investigate All the lines -- and curvatures of her skin A foreign land... Stop -- wait a minute I’ve seen this all before We’re doin’ laundry and watching our favorite show Stop -- wait a minute She’s asking what we are Well, the weeks turned into months and now I fear the time has come… CHORUS I wanna new love -- just takin our time I wanna new love -- no need to define I wanna new love -- everything's easier when It’s just begun… When she says, boy -- what’s your story I can tease -- out all the glory She don’t need -- to know the rest I’m a blank slate and feelin’ cool Stop -- wait a minute This ain’t no longer fun I’m spending every night explaining what I done Stop -- wait a minute She’s asking where I’ve been Well, I know we just got started, but the voice inside my, it says… I wanna new love -- just takin our time I wanna new love -- no need to define I wanna new love -- everything’s easier when It’s just begun… I already know his family And I love their company If you ask his middle name I know that and so much more Everyday we wake up close Drink coffee, eat butter and toast All the times we’ve shared together And still with more to come Stop -- wait a minute I remember us when we couldn’t walk a block without kissing Stop -- wait a minute I remember us then We’ll the months turned to years And baby we’re still here CHORUS I wanna an old love -- Just taking our time I wanna an old love -- No need to define I wanna new love -- everything’s better when I’ve got no need to run I wanna new love -- just takin our time I wanna an old love --no need to defined I wanna new love -- everything’s easier when [singing over each other] It’s just begun / I wanna an old love -- I wanna new love -- no need to define I wanna new love -- everything’s easier when [singing over each other] It’s just begun /

Box of Wonders My grandma said to save it all, you’ll find a use Might be big, might be small She drank chardonnay throughout the day And fed us whiskey to keep us sane CHORUS: Box of wonders Bottomless vessel Packed with goods for all that ails ya She was a cocktail shaker, rose water bather Known her flagrant behavior And it might take her all day to get ready But know she’ll pack everything you wish you always had Box of wonders Bottomless vessel Packed with goods for all that ails ya Box of wonders Bottomless vessel Packed with goods for all that ails ya

about

Burnside Sebastopol, California

In the western hills of Sonoma County, Burnside ignited from funky bassline groves born of Dixie, slick beats from a beekeeping yogi, and a motley repertoire of original songs that tell the journey from city streets to country roads, of anxious agrarians in search of home, yearnings for a better world and of a goat who thinks it's a sheep. Americana, modern rock, soul, funk, indie and more. ... more
