I’ve been compared to James Taylor, David Gray, John Mayer and Neil Young. I play acoustic rock (covers and originals) with a strong, unique voice.

The Box

The box
Brian Christopher Burrill, Copyright, 2006

Same feeling, and I’m back inside the box once again
Same old ceiling, with a floor that’s growing thin
It’s amazing that I haven’t gone crazy
Shame I won’t let anybody in
A catastrophe that’s waiting to happen
In a race nobody’s going to win

Reputation, do you really care what people think
Frustration, I could surely use another drink
Well I can’t believe I let it all happen
Might have seen it slipping away
Dreamt I was falling forever
Told myself that I would be ok

Let down and I hit ground, never around
Cheater, selfish, a little attitude
Lied to me and told me she didn’t
Lied to me and told me she did
Told me she would but she wouldn’t
Acting like a twelve year old kid

Hello old friend, can I meet you for a couple of beers
Same old story, and just about the same number of years
Well I never thought I’d be a statistic
Never saw myself one of them
And here I’m trying to be realistic
But I’m back inside the box once again

Let down and I hit ground, never around
Cheater, selfish, a little attitude
Looking for a way to get out
Lying like you want to stay in
As if I wouldn’t figure it out
As if you new where to begin
