Henry Raker New York, New York

Hello! My name is Henry Raker, and I’m a NYC based saxophonist and clarinetist.

Originally from Brunswick, Maine, I have been playing saxophone since the age of 10. I've played with all sorts of bands raging from wind ensembles to traditional jazz bands to Greatful Dead cover bands to ska bands to free improvisation-based bands. I love it all. ... more

Track Name: You Know
You, you know what you want,
You, you know,
You, you know what you want,
and that is what you know.

You, you know,
You, you know,
oh oh oh oh.
Track Name: Lingerie
You think you can get your way
Going to bed in your lingerie;
Not today. Ooh.

Oh you, yes you thought you could,
Oh, I know that you did. I know that you thought you could, yes you,
You, yes you thought you could, and I know 'cause I saw it in your face when you walked through my door that you thought you could.
And it's no fault but my own that I thought that maybe,
that maybe,
that maybe you would not, but you did, but you did, but you did through no fault of my own.
It was you.
'Cause you thought you could.

You think you can get your way
Going to bed in your lingerie;
Not today.
Track Name: Pack Mule
Feeling like I'm lead to water
And made to drink,
Even when I wasn't thirsty.

Lead me like a pack mule,
I'll share your load,
But I'll end up carrying it all.

Feel, feel, feel,
Feel like I can't go on,
Yet you convince me always to.

Feel like I can't go on,
Yet you convince me always to.

Knowing I'm at the water,
Taking two steps in,
Hoping I remember how to swim.

"Wash away my sins," I pray,
"Teach me where to look to find myself."
Oh
Oh oh oh

Feel, feel, feel,
Feel like I can't go on,
Yet you convince me always to.

Feel like I can't go on,
Yet you convince me always to.
Track Name: The Mariner
Through my window I can see
A family lives next to me
Teaching their new baby how to walk.

Each night they cradle him to sleep,
Then he starts to dream,
Then he starts to sail all through his thoughts.

Ooh.

He feels the wind flow through his hair
As he sails everywhere,
All around his little mind.

And in his sleep he can go
Somewhere he doesn't know -
He will see what he can find.

I am The Mariner, oh yes I am.
The Mariner is who I am, and I am The
Mariner, oh yes I am.
You will see.

So now with the rising sun,
His dreams are finally done,
Now he comes back to his life,

But he can't wait until he
Is back out on the sea
When he goes to sleep that night.

I am The Mariner, oh yes I am.
The Mariner is who I am, and I am The
Mariner, oh yes I am.
You will see.
