about

CF Burke New York, New York

After years of working (happily) on plenty of other people's music in the NY area, CF Burke decided to start releasing some of his own. Not in all styles, but a few. First turned on to the usefulness of piano lessons with the gift of a Doors songbook in 7th grade, he's since tried to get his hands dirty with as many instruments and facets of songmaking as possible. ... more

Track Name: Audrey
Audrey, I waited to long to ask your name.
Might you have taught me, a beautiful way to walk through pain.
Your smile was never meant just for me, but now I'm in love with your face on my tv, Audrey.
Saw you on holiday. A princess and a barber share just one dance.
You gave your heart away. To think of all the kids you gave a chance.
Your smile was never meant just for me, but now I'm in love with your face on my tv, Audrey.
If a princess never cares, if a suitor never dares, then the highest tower and the prettiest flower may as well turn black and die, Audrey.
I love your sunny funny face. Gonna cross the moon river with you. How do you do? Sharing a look as you get passed the orange. I'm gonna cross the moon river with you.
Track Name: My Girl
My girl isn't really my girl, no she'll never really be. Cuz nobody gets to own the sun, and that's what my girl is to me.
My girl probably won't like this song, no, she likes a pretty melody and a singer that can carry a tune, much betterer than me.
My girl likes to read her books in bed. She's on her way back home right now. That could keep me smiling oh, for days. So what you think about that?
My girl lets me keep a scarf she once wore, in a not too creepy way. If a scarf could ever lead to a song, then surely this would be the one.
<Chorus>
I love to think of all the time times, that we've got laid before us. And it makes me smile, times, to think of all the silly shit she might say. I could wait here for months, years, guessing at the right move to make now, but there's nothing left to guess. Not with my Jess. There's nothing left to guess, not with me and my Jess.<repeat>
The third verse no one ever gets to hear, it's just for my girl and me. I'm only killing time singing this song, til my girl gets on home to me. I'm only killing time singing this song, til my girl comes on home to me. I'm only killing time singing this song, til my girl comes on home to me.
Track Name: Megan Again
Been at least 10 since I thought about her, back then I dripped around in Rochester.
She was a sweet thing with an ivory face, I wonder why I ever left that place.
I made a bet with her I'd make her cry, she had to listen to a song where a girl died and a guy sang to her gravestone.
She said she did and I had won a date, she wasn't into staying out that late. She's probably married now, I'll sing her name out loud:
Megan. Megan.
She had that western New York manner of speaking, she'd let me laugh at her. Last time I saw her she was curled up and sleeping, I left without a word.
I might have still been 17, the Verve and Biggie on the radio.
I think I still made every class, not that that mattered much to anyone.
Her favorite movie was the princess bride, I wonder how these things stay in my mind.
Just that I'm writing this, makes very little sense.
So I guess that I'd tell her, that we should have been lovers. It was a different thing back then but, I'm gonna sing her name again:
Megan. Megan.
She had that western New York manner of speaking, she'd let me laugh at her. Last time I saw her she was curled up and sleeping, I left without a word.
I might have still been 17, the Verve and Biggie on the radio.
I think I still made every class, not that that mattered much to anyone.
Megan, what color were your eyes?
