To Gentlemen

about

To Gentlemen is the debut release for HER CROOKED HEART, Rachel Ries' new project. This quartet of tunes was culled from a larger, rollicking session recorded in the woods of WI, winter of 2016/17. The songs on To Gentlemen are a snapshot of the album yet to come; an album that is in turns disarmingly spare and deeply danceable. All the songs wade through the ever-rich and roiling waters of loving, leaving and finding new life again.

Track Name: Are You Good You Are
you’ve got my heart
right where i wanted it to be
from the start i knew it’d be safe over the sea
now i see
the good you are for me
what do you see, my sweet?

when we began
i couldn’t feel my reprieve
but you’re a good man and your hands broke down my disbelief
now i believe
the good you are for me
do you believe?

midnight has fallen
and you are sound asleep
over the ocean
you’ll see me in your dreams
and when your day is dawning
and i am sound asleep
over the ocean
i’ll see you in my dreams

where we’ll keep
safe in the arms of unreal
til we finally face what we fear
coz i do fear
the good you are for me
but i see, i can see
the good you are for me
and i believe, yes i believe
the good you are for me

do you believe, my sweet?
