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

Track Name: Kiss
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…
Track Name: Don't Blame it on the City
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
Track Name: Holiday
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
Track Name: Outta Time
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
Track Name: Cassandra
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
Track Name: Let's Make it a Party
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
Track Name: New Love
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 /
Track Name: Duck Pizza
DUCK PIZZA

I want some bite with your sweetness now
Your touch has got to leave me hurtin’ somehow
Don’t ‘pologize when you get your way
No— No—

Well, that other love, yeah, it was sweet— and
That sugar’s nice when it’s there— but
It don’t remain like — your teeth marks do
Ooo— Ooo—

~

I wanna know when you’re kissing me
Take what you want, then you leave me be
I’ll come on back when you want some more
Oh— Oh—

You wanna dance, well, you gotta tug— and
I’ll push it back on to you
Please don’t kind, just— take what is mine
Whoa— whoa—
Track Name: Box of Wonders
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
