about

The fifth album from Adam Reczek, “In the Night, for the Morning” is a demonstration of the growth of Reczek as an artist and multi-instrumentalist. The record takes on more of a folk-rock sound than his previous efforts while maintaining the same fundamental inspirations as have been present on all his earlier records. Accompanying himself with rich and diverse instrumentation, Adam Reczek’s fifth record looks beyond his established paradigm and offers a different view of the same picture.

Recorded and mixed in my small home studio over the course of four months in the fall and winter of 2013 at the age of 24.

Track Name: Night
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Weaving
Took the highway away from you
And I took it alone
I’m lost in the dotted lines
Won’t you pick up your phone?
And I couldn’t see an eternity in you
So I’m back to the start again

Would you believe in uncertainty? I do
And ask her if she’ll marry me
Her eyes burn bright like fireflies
And they’re lighting up the night
Where’d they go?

What I’m achieving is love
I do believe that you’ve been sent from above
And if I am leaving then it’s not for long
You’ll still be weaving all the holes in my heart

You must have been heaven sent to find me
But heaven couldn’t tell
It always looked like you were hiding
You were never seen beside me
When I was stuck in hell

But I know what these pages read
And I know you couldn’t see
You couldn’t see

What I’m achieving is love
I do believe that you’ve been sent from above
And if I am leaving then it’s not for long
You’ll still be weaving all the holes in my heart

I am looking for a girl out there
Who can catch me when I fall
Sit and wonder bout the weather
Wearing rain-soaked overalls
Who can sit and watch the sun set
And help me squint these weakened eyes
Who can guide me through the darkness
Who can help me watch it rise

What I’m achieving is love
I do believe that you’ve been sent from above
And if I am leaving then it’s not for long
You’ll still be weaving all the holes in my heart

What I’m achieving is love
I do believe that you’ve been sent from above
And if I am leaving then it’s not for long
You’ll still be weaving all the holes in my heart
Track Name: April Song
One foot in the ground, I said I’m running
One foot in the ground, I said I’m free
One foot on the other side
Not buried by the great divide
I’ll pick me up and find another me

Front door’s open wide and I am running
Back porch in the afternoon I’m gone
One more time in broad daylight
Don’t think I’ll last another night
Or find out if the road goes on and on

Hold me close with a wounded hand, I said I’m offering
Hold me tight and show me how to heal
Hold me close with a wounded hand I said “who’s offering?”
Hold me tight and let me know it’s real

I’m fixing up the story I have written
I’m trying to make it happier to read
I took out all the saddest parts
Like loneliness, and that’s a start
But that might be exactly what it needs

Hold me close with a wounded hand and save my city
Right here in the middle of the street
You kill me with a smile, what do you want from me?
I barely feel the ground beneath my feet

One thumb up could take me to the water
One thumb up could take me to the fields
One step left and I’ll be dead
A destination in my head
And where it is will never be revealed
And where it is will never be revealed
Track Name: What I Wouldn't Do
What I wouldn’t do
Just for one chance
Or one try to figure out love
Looking up at you
From the bottom
Just hoping for a glance from above

What I wouldn’t choose
To be lonely for four long weeks
And then fifty-two more
So what have I got to lose?
And what can I say
Just to keep you on this side of the door?

Would you be blue
If you hadn’t read the news?
Remember your eyes have the right to refuse
You’re wasting your time
Stuck in the waiting line
Get on out you’ll be just fine

What I wouldn’t say
I guess it’s the price that we pay
For ignoring what’s said in our hearts
So why’d you wait until today?
I wish I could go back
I wish I could say that I knew from the start

Would you be blue
If you hadn’t read the news?
Remember your eyes have the right to refuse
You’re wasting your time
Stuck in the waiting line
Get on out you’ll be just fine

So where does that leave me?
And where does that leave you?
Would it leave us together if I only knew(?)
What I wouldn’t do
Just to tell you the truth
That I wrote this whole song about you
Track Name: Radio Silence
The air is filled with vibration
And I can barely breathe, it’s so thick in my lungs
And all I feel is frustration
‘Cause all I ever hear is people speaking in tongues

Surrounded by questions of science
And I’m learning more any chance that I can
I’m drowning in radio silence
And I am losing air every time that I scan

I’m waiting my turn just to burn again
And I am wrapped around your arm like a tourniquet
And I’m not letting go

The Earth’s in perpetual showers
Of signals from afar that collide with my ears
As wide as the height of the towers
Reaching for the stars that we all engineer

So drive me away from reliance
On artificial sound, and keep going until
I’m lost in radio silence
I promise there is no insurmountable hill

If I make a sound I am earning it
And I’m still wrapped around your arm like a tourniquet
And I’m not letting go
And I’m not letting go
Track Name: Chasing Arrows in the Backyard
A little late is when he finds her
A toned down version of himself
But from his own world he has grown away from lately
And they weren’t shopping from the same shelf
Trying to appeal to them
All while they peel him down
To something he can never hold dear

Like chasing arrows in the backyard
Their course is straight and sure
But not of where they’re headed
And he will follow them blindly
Until there’s nowhere left to land

He would shoot his arrows blindly
Never watching where they’d land
Never minding he was cutting his feet on twigs
Oh how he followed them so
Where, oh where did they go?

Like chasing arrows in the backyard
Their course is straight and sure
But not of where they’re headed
And he will follow them blindly
Until there’s nowhere left to land

Like chasing arrows in the backyard
Their course is straight and sure
But not of where they’re headed
And he will follow them blindly
Until there’s nowhere left to land
Track Name: 85
Who could possibly be so ecstatic
In the season where nothing can bloom?
When the rain was like radio static
And we sat in the living room

And the letters were all of them scattered
But the words like a miracle came
All ferocious like nothing else mattered
But your frown was satirical

That was the last time I saw you alive
When asked how you felt you replied “85”
If heaven exists then I’m sure you’ll arrive

Never worried by sharing the bottle
Or afraid to be taking it straight
With a hand always gripped on the throttle
And the will to accelerate

Like a kid on his third cup of coffee
Filled with milk from a cereal bowl
With ideas that had always seemed lofty
Would have rocked but you had to roll

That was the last time I saw you alive
When asked how you felt you replied “85”
If heaven exists then I’m sure you’ll arrive

So I’ll pick up where you went out
As if there was ever any doubt

That was the last time I saw you alive
When asked how you felt you replied “85”
If heaven exists then I’m sure you’ll arrive

That was the last time I saw you alive
When asked how you felt you replied “85”
If heaven exists then I’m sure you’ll arrive
Track Name: Back Where I Belong
You wrote me a letter and told me you’d see me soon
On the back of a picture you took from your living room
You wrote it in April but I didn’t read it ‘til June
It said you were leaving, I worried that I’d be leaving too

Send me a rose so I know you arrived
Send me a sign
There used to be ghosts now I know they’re alive
Send me right back where I belong

Call it an omen or call it a small price to pay
I didn’t have my glasses and still saw it a mile away
I’ll call it frustration ‘cause I can’t find someone to blame
When it comes like a freight train and it hits you just the same

Send me a rose so I know you arrived
Send me a sign
There used to be ghosts now I know they’re alive
Send me right back where I belong

I made it through winter and noticed that nothing had changed
The book wasn’t different but just how the words were arranged
And call me a cynic because I had called it a waste
The thing’s I created, all of them were made to be replaced

Send me a rose so I know you arrived
Send me a sign
There used to be ghosts now I know they’re alive
Send me right back where I belong

Send me a rose so I know you arrived
Send me a sign
You were the last good thing in my life
So send me right back where I belong
Track Name: Five Months More
The day will come soon
When I’ll fly away
Away from this room
And over the bay
And should I choose
And should I choose I can stay

I’ll sleep ‘til I wake
On a hot afternoon
Then see my own breath
In the light of the moon
And if I sleep
Then I will sleep until noon

I’ve opened the door
Could I survive five months more?

When all’s been said
What will I show?
And when I’m dead
Who’ll care to know?
And should I choose
And should I choose I can go

And when you find breathing’s a chore
Try to survive five months more

When each tear that’s cried falls to the floor
I’ll be alive five months more
Track Name: Morning
(Instrumental)
