Standing in the showTake it all away Dinner and a movie, scrape the bowl I’m never hungry and I’m never full They make pills to ease the pain But that ain’t the easy way How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? er till the heat runs out Trash is on the corner where I put it out Pills to take the pain Walking through the Quarter with my hood pulled up Don’t you stand beside me boys I got bad luck Prayers to ease the pain But I feel it all the same Thought I hit the bottom but I’m falling fast Tell me why is it so hard to make a good thing last Praying no more rain Won’t you spare a little change? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? Putting on a record, it’s my favorite song Tell me why, tell me why did I wait so long Where are you now? Have you got it figured out? Wrap your arms around me, you’re my only home Getting closer to the ground, turtle bone I thought I heard a sound But there’s no one else around How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart? How many times will you break my heart?

Strike a match and watch it burn Now every single match will get a turn First the smoke then flame appears I can feel the fire drawing near Smoke is filling up my room As I write another love letter for you Just for you See the sun is sinking low You’re going but you got nowhere to go Walk the streets, you’re nowhere bound Like the king of the underground Now you’re calling me your friend Setting me free to chase the wind Chase the wind Fire that keeps me, keeps me Fire that keeps me, keeps me running Sun is sinking, now it’s gone But it’s coming back before too long I’ll the hit the pavement, walk it out Telling me what it’s all about And all my friends are at the show I’m going but I got nowhere to go To go Fire, looking back at me Fire, tell me what you see? Tell me how you burn so bright Keeping me company tonight Yes I’m calling you my friend But every fire needs the wind Chase the wind Fire that keeps me, keeps me Fire that keeps me, keeps me running

My Bad Mood 02:54
Me and my bad mood Don’t want to hear from you I’m at a show, I’m all alone You’re dancing up and down the room Don’t you call my name It only brings me pain I see you found a girl with a fancy twirl I guess that I should go and do the same You know I’d rather be between the sheets And with somebody new But I can’t stop thinking ‘bout you and my bad mood Me and my bad mood Got nothing left to prove Train jump track or a heart attack Oh anything to get over you Don’t you call my name It only brings me sweet pain You got your new blue jeans And the girl of your dreams I guess that I should go and do the same Oh but I’d rather sing in harmony the way we used to do Oh I’m getting pretty tired of me and my bad mood Yes I’d rather be in company that knows me like you do But I’m getting pretty used to me and my bad mood

Coyote Creek 02:51
Driving through the pines while the sun goes down Shadows from the West and I’m Texas bound Meet me in the middle at Coyote Creek Gonna see my baby, said he’d wait for me Pull off the highway on an old dirt road I hit the brakes but I can’t take it slow Coming round the bend I see the porch light on... And I’m right back in your arms, oh yeah Your everloving arms, oh yeah It’s right where I belong Right where I belong Remember when we met on Highway 68 I saw you coming through the desert haze You pulled your truck into the turnaround I walked to you, but did I touch the ground Some people say love’s a compromise Then meet me by the canyon in the purple light Meet me in the middle, baby, right or wrong... Till I’m right back in your arms, oh yeah Your everloving arms, oh yeah It’s right where I belong Right where I belong I’m in your arms, oh yeah Your everloving arms, oh yeah It’s right where I belong Right where I belong

Good Time 03:14
Make it happen, oh you know You know I will I saw the rolling hills of Of Nelsonville standing still Made it everywhere I said, I said I’d be Oh now what is to become Become of me Turn and leave It’s a good time Having a real good time It’s a real good time for bad timing Now you’re packing up your Your dirty clothes You’ve been out so long it’s starting to show A common rose Now you’re lacing up your Your walking shoes It’s like you thought that they'd just give it to you You've been schooled It’s a good time Having a real good time It’s a real good time for bad timing, amen Said you'd make it and you RSVP Oh I can’t take it honey Come see about me You're so mean Leave your trouble, honey Right at the door And leave your girlfriend too, ya know She's such a bore, I love you more And more It’s a good time Having a real good time It’s a real good time for bad timing, amen

When You Go 03:57
She's a little mess, you watch her get undressed As I lay me down to rest in his bed Steady as you go with her down that road And I hope to someday know what's in your head You watch your spirit fly away into the sky And you said you cried the whole way home Well me, I kind of like this wild and stormy night And I think I might just let you go... But can I come with you I want to go with you When you go Can I come with you Please take me with you When you go Do you ever feel that none of this is real? Maybe you're just in the other room Well I hope you're happy now cause you gotta try somehow We know that we can’t blame it on the moon When I lost you that night the stars were in your eyes Crying to each other in the street Well I guess your little lie was the last of our goodbyes And my friend I know someday we’ll meet... But can I come with you I want to go with you When you go Can I come with you Please take me with you When you go Can I come with you I want to go with you When you go

Songs Remain 04:06
Picking up and dropping me off Tell me did you ever fix your truck? Lay me down in the afternoon Go a little crazy when I’m in my mood You know I love those songs you made Wild rose in the pouring down rain Day fire burning up in flames To know you is to be forever changed I am glad it was you who broke my heart Black coffee and bacon fat You're an inner city lumberjack Yeah, a country boy through and through I think that's why I fell for you Oh honey look what you done done I know you want it all, go have your fun But letting go doesn’t mean you lose Cause a part of me goes on with you I am glad it was you who broke my heart Cause it had to be you who broke my heart You may not know a wild rose Well she needs a lot of room to grow So now I’m taking a look around And let me tell you what I found It's that all our songs remain Wild rose in the pouring down rain Day fire burning up in flames To know you is to be forever changed I am glad it was you who broke my heart Cause it had to be you who broke my heart You know I love those song you made Wild rose in the pouring down rain

Mountaintop 03:34
Tie me to your love you know I cannot get enough I want to change my way of living, try to be forgiven Help me see the way you know I’m trying everyday I cannot fight, I cannot rest, cannot cannot be my best The only sound I long to hear The only place I love so dear Feel the wind on the mountaintop How can I stop, how can I stop Take me to your room you know I want to be with you I feel alone, I feel afraid, I've had as much as I can take Darkness settles in and I want one more night of sin And don't you like the way I am, don't you want to be my man The only sound I long to hear The only place I love so dear Feel the wind on the mountaintop How can I stop, how can I stop Tell me that it’s true you know I’m waiting here for you I want to change my way of living, try to be forgiven Count the ships go by, I’ll take another lonely night Oh Mississippi never stop, take me to the mountaintop The only sound I long to hear The only place I love so dear Feel the wind on the mountaintop How can I stop, how can I stop

Sitting home alone on New Years Eve Boom boom, fireworks exploding There is no one that I long to kiss but you No one I’m knowing Now you’re out there, you’re out there Are you out there, you out there? Love was just an easy game we used to play Who knew? Were you pretending? But I really lost my shit, you know I fell for you It’s never ending Now you’re out there, you’re out there Are you out there, you out there? Sitting home alone on Saturday night Boo-hoo, my candle burning Light a candle for each time I ever dreamed on you Oh how I’m yearning Now you’re out there, you’re out there Are you out there, you out there, you out there?

Without You 03:21
Are you coming to my show? 9 o’clock it’s time to go Tonight I’m sleeping on the floor, thinking about you 80 miles till we’re there Windows down and dusty air We’ve got some time to spare for a while Good dirt road, now I know All the places you would go But I’m travelling alone, without you Without you Like a lock without a key Bird without a tree Lover please come back to me Without you Like a song without a name Desert without rain I know I should not complain Shake some hands, load some gear Hope we made some friends down here I’d do anything to hear from you at all When I fall asleep tonight Let my memories hold me tight Cause now you’re out of sight, on your own I’m a cloud caught in the wind Don’t let this be the end How can I start again, without you? Without you Like a queen without a king Diamond wedding ring Honey we don't need those things Without you Like a lock without a key Bird without a tree Lover please come back to me Without you Like a song without a name Desert without rain I know I cannot remain without you

about

Esther Rose was in perpetual motion when she wrote How Many Times. In the span of two years, she moved three times, navigated the end of a relationship, and began touring more than ever. The New Orleans-based singer-songwriter used that momentum while she penned her third studio album. That’s why, as the album title’s nod to the cyclical nature of life implies, there’s a rush that accompanies How Many Times as if you’re experiencing an awakening, too.

Rose expands her alt-country sound into a blossoming world of folk pop and tender harmonies. A collection of complete takes recorded live to tape with rich instrumentation, soul-tugging hooks, and resonating vocal melodies, How Many Times carries you into the room in which it was made. There to help realize this was co-producer Ross Farbe of synthpop band Video Age, who Rose also credits for bringing a stereo pop glow to these new songs.

Rose’s journey through the past few years has been one of saying yes to new opportunities, all while nurturing and playing in bands in the New Orleans country music scene. The arrival of How Many Times is evidence of the sweeping growth Rose has undergone, both personally and artistically. She’s turning towards her troubles and facing them head-on, ready to feel whatever’s necessary in order to keep growing upwards and outwards.
