about

Composed, recorded, and mixed at my home in Minneapolis during summer 2018. Mastered with some help from www.landr.com

Special thanks to Dieter Hein Mutis - Harmonica, "Fight for Your Right to Funk"

Thank you for your love and support. Love is the ultimate power, I am so blessed to have friends to share my music with.

This is my story of rediscovering myself in the wake of great loss. It doesn't matter what happens, there is always room to grow. There is a beautiful spirit inside of you, never force your force your love to hide. Follow your dreams and sing your songs!
-CF

Track Name: Broken Heart Blues
Last night I was dreaming
and it got me believing
that you were right here by my side-
but when my eyes opened
and the magic was broken
I pulled up my boots while I cried

You told me you love me,
so why did you leave me?
When my world started crumbling apart
I can't ever hate you
after all that we've been through,
but fuck you for breaking my heart

Last night I was dreaming
and almost believing
that everything worked out okay-
but when my eyes opened
the music's still broken
that's another song for another day
Track Name: Fight For Your Right to Funk (Ft. Dieter Hein Mutis)
You gotta fight
for your right to funk!
Cuz sometimes the man just won't let ya put it on the one.

But we've all got
a right to have fun!
So come come and get some, with Captain Queso on the run.

Cuz groovin's for movin and we're movin on up
off the downbeat to new streets where the funk flows free-
do ya know what I mean?

Ain't nobody gonna take my funk away, not today.
Just gotta pick up the old guitar and play, like this.

It goes to show I know
I got no time for the nose
So get yours outta my funk
cuz you're skunkin it up in here

I got a pocket of my own
to keep my funk goin all night long-
do ya hear that groovy song?

Cuz we're funkin around, boogie on downtown
where the party is bumpin and the dancers are jumpin-
do ya know what I mean?

Ain't nobody gonna take my funk away, not today.
Just gotta pick up the old guitar and play, like this.

Stop!
Boogie Breakdown!

I'm just funkin around
beatin the dust off these drums and blowin my horn-
do ya wanna get in on the jam?

Cuz there's plenty of room for two in these grooves,
so why don't ya come on down?
Do ya think that ya can?

Blaring in the basement we can generate a sound
that'll vibrate our encasement-
It might bring the cats around

Ain't nobody gonna take my funk away, not today.
Just gotta pick up the old guitar and play, like this.
Track Name: Waiting for the Phone
Waiting for the phone but it won't ring
Waiting for her song but she won't sing
Just sittin here by myself waiting on everything

Waiting for your call but it wont come
Waiting for some love from anyone
I wanna feel alive before I'm done

All these hours on my own
Tortured by the phone that never rings
I guess I'll sing

Waiting for someone to call a friend
Waiting for the love that never ends
Waiting for the garden that's mine to tend

Waiting for the day when I feel fine
Waiting for the time when I can shine
Waiting for the story that matches mine

All these hours on my own
Tortured by the phone that never rings
I guess I'll sing

There ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring
Ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring

There ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring
Ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring

There ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring
Ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring

There ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring
Ain't no point
Waitin for the phone to ring
Track Name: Sounds That Can't Be Found
88 keys on this piano,
but I'm looking for one more

100 roaches in the ashtray,
but the next one holds that key

Why can't I be?

7 billion people in the world,
but I'm looking for one more

You'd think I'd learn to see
what's sitting right in front of me

I'm searching for the sound that can't be found-
come with me, and see what all the others see,
before going back to a place that feels a little more like home

A billion horns are blaring in my head,
but I'm looking for one more

I'm searching for the source of that sound,
that nobody hears but me-
and maybe you
Track Name: Poco a Poco (This is It)
Poco a poco, nos convertimos en lo que somos
Poco a poco


What is it?
You are it,
I am it-
This is it.

Where is it?
It's everywhere-
can't you hear?

It's love
Can't you see it?
Can't you feel it?
This is it.

What is it?
It's right here,
It's right here
This is it.



I am it
You are it
He is it
She is it
We are it
This is it
I am it
and you are it
and he is it
and she is it
and we are it
and this is it

It's love!
Cant you see it?
Can't you feel it?
This is it!


Little by little, we become who we are
Shine bright little star
Track Name: Love The World
I'm gonna love the world
and I don't care if it loves me back
Cuz I've got too much to give
and I'm on the proper path

I shined my light inside
and now it's spilling out
I'm gonna love the world
I'm done with any doubts

The sun understands
and the rain does too
the plants and bugs and morning dew
Better to spread the things that grow
I gotta keep the balance
Keep the flow

I'm gonna wear a smile
and sing the truth inside my heart
Cuz I feel a fire inside
and I'm off to a perfect start

I found the man inside
a boy so full of fear
Now I'm gonna love the world
I found the next frontier

The sun understands
and the rain does too
the plants and bugs and morning dew
Better to spread the things that grow
I gotta keep the balance
Keep the flow

I'm gonna love the world
Even if the world don't love me back

I shined my light inside
and now I'm on the love attack

The sun understands
and the rain does too
the plants and bugs and morning dew
Better to spread the things that grow
I gotta keep the balance
Keep the flow

Find your freedom
Find your light
Chase your passions
Win your fight
Make your choices
Open up your heart
Raise up your voices
It's time to start

The sun understands
and the rain does too
the plants and bugs and morning dew
Better to spread the things that grow
I gotta keep the balance
Keep the flow

I'm gonna love the world
I'm gonna love the world
I'm gonna love the world
I'm gonna love the world
