about

“Helping Put Your Dress On” is sensual and sexual with a slick lick and a deep bass groove and a vocal that somehow seems both confident and shy all at once. It melds jazzy drums and a haunting organ into a soundtrack for the night: dark, sly, mysterious; it’s the sound of the curiosity that takes over when the lights turn off.

- Written by Ryan Gaio

lyrics

Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on

Windows shake from passing cars
CDs skip, repeating parts.
We’re hummingbirds, we’re small talk,
never know the words, hollow thoughts.

Pulling in your hips, kissing your mouth
Nothing to be figured out
My fluttered little heart
Flecks feathers slowly apart

Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on

Parting your hair around your face
Slipping the hairpins into place
Are these the days that I would replay?
Moments I remember when we fade away

Heavy heart, another ticker-taught part
Our flirting feelings, let’s stay in the dark.
But I’m pretty sure I’ve always heard
Someone calling my name when I stood

Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
Helping put your dress on
