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?

Adrian 03:49
i wanna smoke a cigarette to remind me that i’m close to death i’m willful and foolish no matter my words the words we write are eloquent but there’s nothing like the way you said you’re building a garden for someone and it’s time to tend oh adrian i’ve sung this before but never for you oh adrian i’m telling the truth and what’s more i’m telling you well i don’t think it’s gonna hurt all that much but if it does i will raise up a glass to honor, to exes and even to gentlemen coz nothing can predict the wild cards that were dealt years ago are you listening adrian? oh adrian… so i’m gonna smoke this cigarette to celebrate you quitting them but i know if you were here you’d be quick with a light but you’re alight out in the snow and shining through the neighborhood it’s dark as gets but you’re bright as the noon day sun oh adrian i’ve sung this before and this time for you oh adrian i’m telling the truth and what’s more i’m telling you

Loving You 04:09
it took some time but finally i think i’m ready to love someone new but before i do i wanna catalog the truth of what it was like loving you loving you was a tiptoe down the hallway always hoping not to wake up the storm loving you was giving you more chances and battening the hatches till dawn but i know i wanna love again loving you was the ache in the morning when the party had lasted too long loving you was sour on my lips from your kiss that was three parts whisky but i know i wanna love again loving you was a house on fire and both of us were never gonna survive her loving you was walking out that door my hair smelling of smoke and your cologne i know i wanna burn again i know i wanna love again

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.
