    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

Are you happy? What keeps you sane as the years advance? A father and daughter discuss.

lyrics

He asked me
Copyright 2010 by Mary Crowell

He asked me “Mary, are you happy?”
“Why do you always look so sad?”
I said, “Papa, don’t know.
“I’m feeling old,
And god, it just hurts so bad.”

He asked, me “Mary, where you going?
“I tend to worry you’ll be poor.
“Write a CV or
A resume
Your future good to assure.

CHORUS:
I got to write more songs
The only thing that keeps me sane
Keeps my mind, where it belongs
‘Stead of dwelling on the rain.

[Instrumental on verse chord changes]

Chorus

He asked me “Mary, are you happy?”
“’Cause I think I might be sad.”
I said, “Papa, you know
“We’re getting old,
And god, it just hurts so bad.”

He told me, “Mary, girl you know I love you,”
“’Want to know you won’t be sad.”
I said, “Papa I know
“We’re getting old,
And god, I just love , I just love.
God, I just love my Dad.”
He asked me “Mary, are you happy?”
