Biography

Curve Magazine: Editor’s Pick "All The Ways I’ve Loved You" (self-released): If you’re a MySpace user, you may have already “met” singer-songwriter Jessica Burks—her songs have been played more than 175,000 times – but if not, it’s about time you check out one of this self-produced rocker’s four CDs, including this four-song EP (or her great debut, Dahmn Straight). The title track is a raw and aggressive love song, the kind that hits you in the gut and sticks with you for days (or in my case, weeks now). Burks is getting airplay in the U.S. and abroad, and she's doing it “absent of corporate interference.” But don’t think she can’t market the hell out of her stuff: “People can be smarter than marketing,” she says. “Don’t talk down to them.” She’s got the pipes and some biting, insightful lyrics to command our attention without a major label, and God knows what she could produce with a ton of cash behind her. -- Diane Anderson-Minshall, Curve www.myspace.com/curvemagazine

California Love
Words and Music by Jessica Burks

Verse:
You have a life and you don’t want me in it.
I should have been fore-warned.
You say you love me, you wish I could understand it.
I understand you got one foot out the door.

Chorus:
That’s love. Love in California.
That’s love. It’s bringing me down.
That’s love. Love in California.
California Love.

Verse:
I have a life and you want half way in it.
I should have been fore-warned.
You say you love me, I start to understand it.
I watch you come and go out the door.

Chorus:
That’s love. Love in California.
That’s love. It’s bringing me down.
That’s love. Love in California.
California Love.

Bridge:
You say your life is bigger than you are.
That is your write off to responsibility.
You are not fooling anyone.
Not you.
Not yourself.
Not me.

Chorus:
That’s love. Love in California.
That’s love. It’s bringing me down.
That’s love. Love in California.
California Love.

Outro:
Love in California.
Love in California.
California Love.

Over and Over
Jessica Burks, Danny Fleming, Kyle Jones

Over and Over I turn with no sleep
Over and Over my alarm clock beeps
Over and Over the time is here today

Over and Over I turn in my Mind
Over and Over I see while I am blind
Over and Over maybe the end of it all

And my mind aches with the time it takes
What do you want me to say

Over and Over I dream of you
Over and Over I see right through
Over and Over I can hardly pray

Over and Over
Yeah I still want you
Over Over and Over
I do anything and then I run From you
Yeah I run To you
I would I would
Yeah

Its a cellophane dream
Cracked with broken seams
And you turned your back on me

Over and Over I feel it burn
Over and Over my heart does learn
Over and Over some dreams never come true

Over and Over in my view
Over and Over I wonder you
Over and Over trough all of time

Its a ways to a means
Its the whole hill of things
And youve passed the point of no concern

Over and Over I turn with no sleep
Over and Over my alarm clock beeps
Over and Over the time is here today

Yeah Over and Over

All The Ways I’ve Loved You
Words and Music by Jessica Burks

Verse:
I just called to say I love you
I thought you should know
My heart hurts a little more today
But, I am wishing you well and letting you go

Trans:
I don’t wana let you go.

Chorus:
Out of all the ways I loved you.
This is the hardest part
All the ways that I miss you
While I am falling apart
All the ways that I let you down
I was calling to say
Of all the ways I’ve loved you
I still love you anyways
I still love you anyways

Verse:
There are no good answers
Grocery list rots off the wall
Sometimes we see 20 20
Pictures mean nothing at all; still

Trans:
I don’t wana let you go.

Chorus:
Out of all the ways I loved you.
This is the hardest part
All the ways that I miss you
While I am falling apart
All the ways that I let you down
I was calling to say
Of all the ways I’ve loved you
I still love you anyways
I still love you anyways

Bridge:
On down this road we are farther from where we started.
And, that’ll be a long way. A long way.

Chorus:
Out of all the ways I loved you.
This is the hardest part
All the ways that I miss you
While I am falling apart
All the ways that I let you down
I was calling to say
Of all the ways I’ve loved you
I still love you anyways
I still love you anyways

Outro:
I still love you anyways
I still love you anyways
