    This is my third solo album (funded with my first Kickstarter). Like Acolytes of the Machine & Other Gaming Stories (2012), this album was recorded—at Mystic Fig Studio in sunny San Jose, California by Jeff Bohnhoff, the album's producer. The cover artist for this album is Robert Bean of Huntsville, AL. His painting, Season of Sorrows, perfectly captured the feelings I have about the album.

    These songs are sad, funny, and sexy, and they are mythic. We’ve always told stories to ourselves to help us understand why things happen. We write and we tell, and we rewrite and we retell, changing details as we reinvent ourselves and our societies. We keep the bones of our favorite stories.

    This CD comes in a beautiful cardboard six fold package duplicated at Oasis CD.

about

To fall in love with your muse over and over again.

lyrics

Courting My Muse
Copyright 2003 by Mary Crowell

Verse

There is a tale of a man who got to listen to

Songs of the sirens. He lived through the day.

And I---- I wanna be that man.
There is a tale of a man who got to visit with his

Love down in Hades through the power of his Song.
And I---- I wanna hear that man.

Chorus 1
I cast my rose petals under your shoes.
I’ll serve you sips of the sweetest of juice.
Nothing’s too much when I’m courting my muse
If you’ll sing------ to me.


Verse

I am the sort who would think it worth the danger to lay
Down on the crossroads, to hear the Fairies sing,
And stay---- for a year and a day.

The song's the bait that is always proven Fatal, helps
The man find his mate, or leaves my mind a crazy state
And long----ing for the Sing of that Song.

Chorus 2:
I hear the magic that music imbues
In notes you sing and the rhythm you choose.
I fall in love when I’m court-ing my muse,
When you sing------ to me.

[Instrumental]

Bridge

Euterpe, Calliope,

Thalia, Terpsichore,

Clio, Melpommene,
Erato, and Urania,

Polyhymnia!

And you are number ten.

Oh, play some music! Calm my savage beast! Make it
Roar down the mountain.
‘Wanna live inside the sound!
I love---- the tune that takes me above.
Oh, carry me to a place within my dreams! Make me
Hunger for modal strains—sweet harmonies.
Your song---- brings me to my knees.

Chorus 2

When you sing------ to me.


There is a tale of a man who got to listen to

Songs of the sirens.
He lived through the day.
