about

Esther Rose New Orleans, Louisiana

This Time Last Night is my debut album. It features the sounds and players of the country music scene here in Holy Cross. The songs are listed in chronological order of when I wrote them, documenting my experiences and learning as I stumble through life...and seemingly hit every bump on the road.
It was such a pleasure to get to record these songs & I hope you enjoy them!
Thank you for listening.

Track Name: Wanton Way of Loving
this old town's been talking about my round town ways
whole town's been talking about my round town ways
my wanton way of loving / putting numbers on my days

baby when I met you I was on a spree
baby when I met you I was on a spree
you can't get me down on my bended knee

I saw you walking / walking by
I tried to catch your / catch your eye
why didn't I leave you / didn't I leave you alone
my wanton way of loving / now I'm bound to roam

don't you bat your eye / don't you tell me no lie
don't you bat your eye / don't you tell me no lie
some country boy you ain't got no disguise


I saw you walking / walking by
I tried to catch your / catch your eye
why didn't I leave you / didn't I leave you alone
my wanton way of loving / now I'm bound to roam

I'm bound to roam
I'm bound to roam
I'm bound to roam
Track Name: The Game
come alive
baby I've changed
don't you know that love
is just a game
and feelings never
feel the same
come alive

come to me
in my most secret, tender dreams
now your voice is haunting me
come alive

and I wake to find you sleeping
in the deepest reverie
my heart is burning and aching
do you want to be free?
Track Name: Lightning Strikes!
hey pretty baby I know what you're thinking
thinking that I think the same thing, too
get up, go get ready / we're going dancing
light it up / we're staying out past two

see me in the corner / lead me out, dear
take me by the hand out to the floor
hold me in your arms / we'll go sailing round and
today is gone / tomorrow nevermore

lightning strikes!
turn it upside down
lightning strikes!
spin me baby, spin me 'round
lightning strikes!
never hits the same place twice
lightning strikes!
you're not taking my advice

turn the key / babe we're starting over
throwing out the things we thought we knew
look my in the eyes / I'm getting older
I hope I'm getting wiser darling too

lightning strikes!
and it's burning on the ground
lightning strikes!
spin me baby spin me 'round
lightning strikes!
never hits the same place twice
lightning strikes!
you're not taking my advice
Track Name: This Time Last Night
two chairs in the kitchen / two cups in the sink
candle wax is dripping / and the sky is turning pink
you were sitting at my table / and drinking all my wine
darling, this time last night you were mine

days they are repeating / as days they tend to do
you're memory is fleeting / oh my man, I'm missing you
I'll walk down to the quarter / and I'll purchase number nine
darling, this time last night you were mine

you only hurt the one you love
some people say that's true
but now I know you only hurt
the one who's loving you
now it's raining in Louisiana / the river it will rise
darling, this time last night you were mine

you only hurt the one you love
some people say that's true
but now I know you only hurt
the one who's loving you
now I'm sitting at my table / as the stars begin to shine
darling, this time last night you were mine
Track Name: Starting Over
do you like the life you've got?
maybe sometimes / maybe not
young and gay / you're getting older
do you want another man?
try and find him if you can
say goodbye / you're starting over!

people getting stuck in their routine
do you know what living really means?
if you're in a rut / depression really got your gut
say good bye / you're starting over!

well I've been to Mexico
seen the Swiss alps bathed in snow
been around the world a few times over
now the desert beckons me
somewhere I have never seen
au revoir mon cheri / I'm starting over!

or we can build a fire in our own backyard
bring the dog and our two guitars
sitting out under the stars / right here where we always are
we'll be fine
it's all right
we're starting over!
Track Name: Friend or Foe
are you friend or foe?
see i've really got to know
friend, i'll meet you at the river bend
foe must walk down that road alone

stars are burning / stars they fall
stars aren't even stars at all
in the city / in the street
going to the place we used to meet

baby you smoke yours / i'll smoke mine
in my heart there's no denying
it's your company that i keep
at the bend where the water runs deep

back to the city where the rain falls hard
you'll be strumming on your old guitar
you won't be found if you ain't lost
but i found my baby in Holy Cross

i think i found a brand new day
now i'm really on my way
friend or foe baby tell me straight
we'll be walking to the pearly gates

canyon deep / mountain wide
you and me baby side by side
desert sky and the air so clear
we are far from the city out here

well the river's got rhythm and it sings aloud
here it calling out it's river sound
lightning flash and i feel the fire
i am searching for my hearts desire
i am ready for my hearts desire

i think i found a brand new day
now i'm really on my way
friend or foe baby tell me straight
we'll be dancing to the pearly gates
Track Name: Jump Down Baby
well i've got something / something to say
if you wanna hear it well you gotta walk my way
gonna be somebody / someday soon
cause if you think we're really living then we must be dying, too

quit your job now honey / it's up to you
gotta lay around in bed 'cause there's nothing to do
gonna build me a rocket ship / fly to the moon
gonna bring down a star / just for you

you gotta jump down baby
work it out
give me a little shimmy
that's what its all about
gotta jump down baby
work it out
a little boogie woogie
that's what it's all about
Track Name: The Yard Dance
scratch chicken / whatcha missing?
i am just a lonely hen
keep digging through the midden
and i'll find it once again

the old rooster come around
and i told him 'better go'
fancy feathers / he's so proud
look, he's putting on a show

scratch chicken / strut chicken
do the yard dance all day long
scratch chicken / strut chicken
cock-a-doodle daddy sing my song

well the hen's life is a sad life
mean old farmer steal my young
when i'm laying / comes a'praying
puts his hand where it don't belong

scratch chicken / strut chicken
do the yard dance all day long
scratch chicken / strut chicken
cock-a-doodle daddy sing my song
Track Name: The Key
the key is in the switch where it belongs
i have got an itch to go beyond these low lands
if i can

say darling won't you come along with me?
i know you been around but there's so much for me to see
through your eyes

i will call my boss down at the bar
tell him, "keep last weeks pay because i'm leaving today"
i'm going far
far as i can

been working in a kitchen since i was fourteen
waiting tables, tending bar and everything in between
as a young girl

and if there's one thing i have learned from all this 'waiting'
you've got to go whenever you can
just leave it all behind

the key is in the switch where it belongs
i have got an itch to go beyond these low lands
if i can
if i can
if i can
if i can
Track Name: Money Tree
you put a little money down
digging deeper in the ground

we could be so free
under the money tree
dollars grow like leaves
but it's just a dream

she's got the moves downtown
shake it all around

we could be so free
under the money tree
dollars grow like leaves
but it's just a dream

you put a little money down
digging deeper in the ground

we could be so free
under the money tree
dollars grow like leaves
but it's just a dream
Track Name: Someday
i want to thank you lord for giving me my breath
i want to ask you lord, is this all a test?

i want to thank you lord for your message in the wind
want to ask you lord, what will tomorrow bring?

someday

i want to thank you lord for giving me my mind
i want to ask you lord, is it all worthwhile?

i've got to trust you lord, there's nothing else to do
i want to ask you lord, please see my sisters through

someday
