about

Ingrid Gerdes Boston, Massachusetts

Boston soul singer Ingrid Gerdes’ gospel-meets-R&B voice has earned
her more than one comparison to greats like Irma Thomas and Mavis
Staples, and the title of her new album, High Priestess, helps conjure images of a vocalist trained in a Mississippi Delta choir loft, spending
Sundays praising the Lord and raising the roof.

Track Name: Your Boyfriend (single)
Your Boyfriend

Guess where your boyfriend was last night?
I bet he wasn’t answering his phone
Had you wondering if he’d come home
Well I think it’s time you know

Guess where your boyfriend was last night
He was standing on my front porch
He was ringing up my door
Just like he’d done 9 times before


And he begged me, to let him in
Hollering that he was a changed man
Said this time would be different
Naively I believed him

Guess what your boyfriend said last night
That he came around to reminisce, honey
He missed the was we used to kiss, Ya see
Back when I was his

Guess what your boyfriend said last night
He’d been stalking my status on Facebook
Said I’m like a drug and he’s hooked
Then he gave me that old slick look

And He told me he was unattached
Said, baby, there’s no one else
Then he moved in for the kill
I felt a chill run down my back

Ladies Don’t trust Him
Don’t let him in
You’ve got to put him out
Like the Dog he is

And when your boyfriend left last night
I did some checking of my own
Found out he was never alone
He’d been playing me all along

Now don’t get it twisted I’m not the one who missed him
He lied on his own, I’m just another victim
This information is long overdue
But I swear it, I didn’t know about you

He’ll never change his dirty ways
Ulterior motives, that's the game he plays

Ladies Don’t trust Him
Don’t let him in
You’ve got to put him out
Like the Dog he is
Guess Where Your Boyfriend Was Last night.
Track Name: Trying To Remember
Trying to Remember


Didn’t you used to call me
Call me Baby?

And didn’t you used to
pick up your phone when I rang?

Now wasn’t there a time when I used to
Used to trust you?

Now here you are begging me
To come back to you

I’m trying to remember ( when you were good to me)
I’m trying to remember ( the way that I used to feel)
I’m trying to remember ( A time when our love was real)
But Right now all I wanna do
Is forget

I know you used to be the kind of man
I could count on

But somewhere along these 3 years 2 months and 5 days
we went wrong

You’ve been hiding things and lying and you got me questioning everything
Now you’re standing here promising me you’re going to change,
I don’t know what to think.

I’m trying to remember ( when you were good to me)
I’m trying to remember ( the way that I used to Feel)
I’m trying to remember ( A time when our love was real)
But Right now all I wanna do
Is forget

I invested my soul
Get my mind right is what I owe
seems I’m at a crossroad and I don’t know which way to go

I’m trying to remember ( when you were good to me)
I’m trying to remember ( the way that I used to feel)
I’m trying to remember ( A time when our love was real)
Track Name: Move (single)
Move

He said he like the way I Move
He watched the way I work a room
Said I make his heart go boom
Cuz baby likes the way I move, move, move

Hey, clear some space
My ladies and I are gonna turn out this place
Oh, we put on a show
But you’ll just have to watch from behind those velvet ropes

VIP, that’s where we’ll be
So If you wanna step to me
You got to earn it baby

You got to show me how you move
If you wanna see my Hotel room
That’s the way to make my heart go boom
You got to show me how you move

If you got a pretty face, I bet I’ll like ya
And if you got height for me, I won’t deny ya
Think you can hang, then step right up boy
Now dance for me to get my number

We came to party
All my ladies on the dance floor feeling naughty
I can see that you feel me
So if you wanna play
Then you got to got to show me how you Move..move

Hey mister watch the way I shake it
Don’t hold your glass too close I’ll break it
Cuz when I hear that drum beat and that bass groove
I just got to make my body Move

chorus repeat
Track Name: Want Me Too
Want me Too

Just last May
I Passed a very handsome man
Along my way

Our eyes met
And he smiled
Oh the rest is history


Now I
Couldn’t be happier
Everywhere I go
There are flowers
He holds my hand oh
he understands me

And every night he’s singing to me
(what he says)


Chorus:
I want you, I need you, I love you
Do you love me too?

V2:
We went walking by the river
I got ahead just a little way
I turned around his knee was on the ground
I said baby did you fall,
He said yes he fell for me


Now we’re going to the chapel
And we’re gonna get married
And I can’t believe
It’s happened to me
I know it sounds cliché and
it makes me I feel silly
But every night for the rest of my life he’ll be singing to me

Chorus repeat
Track Name: His Game
His Game

Darling, you know you got me
Twisted up inside
Baby, you know just what to say
To bring me to my knees

Chorus:
I love him
And I need him
Why does he torture me so?
I know he don’t Love me
No he’s just playing
But lord knows I love
His Game

Sugar sweet thing, why do you do
All the cruel things you do to me
See I’m begging Yes I’m down on my knees
Won’t you just do right be me

I love you
And I need you
Why do you torture me so
I know you don’t love me
You’re just playing
But lord know I love your game

Bridge:
I just can’t help myself, and I know it aint’ right
Got willpower all day long, Till he calls me up at night
But my heart is growing stronger, And you’re running out of time
So won’t you straighten up baby and tell me you mine

Chorus:
I love him
And I need him
Why does he torture me so?
I know he don’t Love me
No he’s just playing
But lord knows I love
His Game
Yes only lord know, yes I love his game
Track Name: Wicked
Wicked


Something wicked this way comes

The first time you laid eyes on him
He was wearing black Armani

He looked like a movie scene
Drinking dirty martinis

He smiled at you in the mirrored bar
When he caught you watching

Now His attention is yours and you feel lucky
But you’ll be sorry

He’s wicked, he’ll break your heart
A tangled web he’ll weave, and you’ll be caught
He flip ya and then he’ll slip ya
He’s wicked,
but you like it


Hypnotizing, little line schemes
say you’re so
Pretty pretty pretty pretty

Like he read your mind, he knows just what to say
But when you look away he’ll be on his blackberry

He blows in the a thunderstorm
One that shakes you all night

He’ll pull your hair just right
Then be gone with morning light


Bridge:
Love is just his game
Your hearts the currency
If you won’t walk away
I suggest you learn to play

Chorus
Track Name: Better Off
Better Off

Now Let me tell you a story
I’m gonna tell you something true

It’s been 49 days
And I ain’t never thought about you

Don’t ya come around here
Trying to get me to miss you

I put that song to rest
Cuz baby we’re through

C:
See I’m doing just fine without you in my life
And I’m Better off without you


You did me wrong
You know you did

And nothing you can say or do
Is gonna make me forget it

So get acquainted with the back of this door
Cuz you ain’t never coming through

You had it wrong thinking when you left
That I’d be blue, all right

C:
See I’m doing just fine without you in my life
And I’m Better off without you

You held me down yes
Trying to lord all my time

Let me tell ya something baby
You can’t shade my light

Since you’ve been gone I never shined so bright
Now You can see my glitter like a star in the night

See I’m doing just fine without you in my life
I’m doing just fine without you in my life
See I’m doing just fine without you in my life
And I’m Better off without you
Track Name: Shed
Shed

Oops I didn’t know that you were so
Sensitive that I couldn’t tell you
All of the ways you screwed up,
Our relationship

Guess I didn’t notice you growing
Some new emotions and losing your backbone
But I wouldn’t recognize what I’ve never seen
Before


So don’t you point you finger at me
I’ll give up my silence to find some relief
You had you chance to make your amends
But you didn’t take it

Chorus
So I’m gonna shed
All these emotions
I’ve been wearing around
Gonna shed
all your lying skin
It’s just weighing me down
Weighing me down

Thought I cleaned my blood of your venom
Yet here you are still spreading your poison
The face you don’t show is the one that I know
All too well

With all of your colors you like to fool them but
Never again will I be your victim
Now I am your mirror reflecting to you your
Fiction

Don’t you point you finger at me
I’ll give up my silence to find some relief
You had you chance to make your amends
But you didn’t take it

Chorus
So I’m gonna shed
All these emotions
I’ve been wearing around
Gonna shed
all your lying skin
It’s just weighing me down
Weighing me down
Track Name: Can't Take Anymore
Can’t Take Anymore

You tell me its in my head
But I can’t hear what you’re saying

I see your lips move
But I’ve gone deaf
to the game that you’re spittin

Now you ain’t gotta lie
I can see it in your eyes

C:
So you can just leave (just leave)
I don’t want you anymore
You can go (just go)
Get yourself another girl
Cuz I took all I can take
And I can’t take anymore

You say she means nothing to you
And that I’m acting crazy
That clever act is a tactic
That just won’t work on me

Now don’t look so surprised
I can see through all your lies

Chorus


Now you must be some kind of fool to mess with me
I thought I told ya, you know I told ya
This isn’t just some kind of democracy
I operate on a one strike policy

Chorus
Track Name: Other Woman
Other Woman


Another Time maybe we,
Baby we could’ve been good

I know you ain’t free
To treat me like you should

I’m never gonna be ok
With second place

So if you can’t give me all your time and loving
Then baby, you ain’t gonna get me

Now I like all the things you’re saying
But you can count me out, of the games that you’re playing
I know it’s hard to stop something you began
But I’ll never be your other woman

I know you think you mean
All the things you’re saying

I heard through the grapevine
That you got another woman on the side

I don’t know who you think I am
But I don’t share my man with anyone

If you can't tell me I’m your one and only then baby
You got to let me be

Now I like all the things you’re saying
But you can count me out of the games that you’re playing
I know it’s hard to stop something you began
But I’ll never be your other woman

I'm never gonna be your other woman
Track Name: They Always Come Back
They Always Come Back


Baby girl,
I know you’re feeling
Like he took your world,
and left you defeated
Well Save your tears,
you ain’t need em'

It’s a fact they may leave
But they always come back
They Always come back

All those emotions are gonna grow dusty, you’ll see
And you’re gonna find another love in your life, trust me

That’s about the time he’ll be calling you up at night saying
baby baby forgive me

Now you see that, it’s a fact they may leave
but they always come back

Just when you forget the curves of his face,
That when he'll be showing up late night at your place
Saying he heard you were looking great
So he thought he’d stop by Just in case


No
Darling darling
Don’t you forget it
He had his chance
But he failed ya
He realized it’s never gonna be as good as he had it
And that’s why, that’s why
They always come back

Baby girl,
I know you’re feeling
Like he took your world,
and left you defeated
Well Save your tears,
you ain’t need em'

It’s a fact they may leave
But they always come back
They Always come back
Track Name: Your Presence
Your Presence


Your Presence,
Surrounds me
I feel you
Within these walls

Your scent lingers
On my pillow
I swear I see you
In the shadows

And I can’t breathe
I said I can’t breathe
Because your presence
Is suffocating


All the lonely nights
I prayed in vain
Asking why
But no answer came

I felt the pain
Lord I never felt that kind of pain
I tried to rest my weary head
But no sleep ever came

All those cruel shadows
Keep showing me your face
And it feels like
I’ll go insane

And It makes me wonder
Did I bring this on myself
Will I ever be whole again
Well I guess, only time will tell

And now Your Presence
Is all that you left me
Oh and now your presence
Feels like a disease
