about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more

Track Name: Resonance
It's nice of you to notice but we don't
Correct your calculations but we won't
We step one two and turn
We step five six and turn
You'll learn – observe, you'll learn

With gazes locked, with faces all alight
We know our resonance and road aright
You may call us friends or lovers
But do not claim you discovered us
We've – we've been right here all night

And if we're not what you first thought
If we're lighter, if we're lively, if we're lovely
It's for us and no one else
Let the horoscopes be humbled,
Let the charts be all redrawn
We name ourselves

Reprint the books, reissue all the maps
Try drafting them in pencil next perhaps
How lucky you could find
More space inside your mind
Heaven's bigger than you figure every time

Unwind

Our dance is so much older than your admiration of it.

Aligned

Define dissect divine us, it's fine.
It's fine
We don't have to rise above it, we are.

Feel how far.

And if we're not what you first thought
If we're lighter, if we're lively, if we're lovely
It's for us and no one else
Let the horoscopes be humbled,
Let the charts be all redrawn
We name ourselves
Track Name: Good Night Moon
Good night moon, I'm with you
Whatcha say
You and me, what say we
Both call it a day

From screens and skies
a-rest my eyes
so brilliant, so bright -- all right

But now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
So I can see my starry ceiling

But now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
So I can fold up every feeling

Good night sky, you know I
Spend daytime where I'm not
Measuring steps between
What we need and what I've got

I wanna notice every cloud
I wanna jump in every wave
I wanna sing every song, but maybe this one's okay
I'll give it all to tomorrow --
I gave it all to today --
So brilliant, so bright, but all right

Now turn out the lights.......

There there worry
There there fear
You're off off duty
And we're here here here here here

Now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
So I can see my starry ceiling

But now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
Now turn out the lights
So I can fold up every feeling

Good night moon, I'm with you
Roll awhile with me
Let me learn your one tune
Reflect and let it be
Reflect and let it be
Track Name: Why We Build the Wall (by Anaïs Mitchell)
Why do we build the wall
My children, my children
Why do we build the wall?

...Why do we build the wall? We build the wall to keep us free
That’s why we build the wall, we build the wall to keep us free

How does the wall keep us free
My children, my children
How does the wall keep us free?

...How does the wall keep us free? The wall keeps out the enemy
And we build the wall to keep us free
That’s why we build the wall, we build the wall to keep us free

Who do we call the enemy
My children, my children
Who do we call the enemy?

...Who do we call the enemy? The enemy is poverty
The wall keeps out the enemy, and we build the wall to keep us free
That’s why we build the wall, we build the wall to keep us free

Because we have and they have not
My children, my children
Because they want what we have got?

...Because we have & they have not, because they want what we have got
The enemy is poverty, and the wall keeps out the enemy,
and we build the wall to keep us free
That’s why we build the wall, we build the wall to keep us free

What do we have that they should want
My children, my children
What do we have that they should want?

...What do we have that they should want? We have a wall to work upon We have work and they have none,
and our work is never done, my children, my children,
and the war is never won
The enemy is poverty, and the wall keeps out the enemy,
and we build the wall to keep us free
That’s why we build the wall, we build the wall to keep us free

We build the wall to keep us free
Track Name: The Piemaker
Nobody understood (nobody could) all the precautions and the prayers,
rules and restrictions, all the bother to behave
But some are so exceptional, so rare -- one in ten million --
even daring to step out into the street is beyond brave

It's not what you've lost, it's what you've saved
And it's not what it's cost, it's what you've braved

The word they use is "gifted" but it chafes when the gift just takes away
your freedom and your friends, the recklessness of play
But unlike any other, you were blessed, so you use it for the best
a taste of beauty the world never expected

It's not what you've lost, it's what you've claimed
And you've earned every step of your way

You look and don't touch
You look and don't touch
You do not ask much, no
You look and don't touch
You look and don't touch
'Cause looks can kiss and looks can cut so deep

It took training, it took time, and it took tests -- & a few hard accidents --
to learn the limits you'd live with all your days
But routine became your solace, expertise -- comfort lives in recipes;
you craft a masterpiece, guessing how it tastes

You look and don't touch
You look and don't touch
You do not ask much, no
You look and don't touch
You look and don't touch
'Cause words can kiss and words can cut so deep

Heart of hearts, you are here and that's enough
You know your own way to love
You know your own way to love
Heart of hearts, you are here with me tonight
And if I hold you in my eyes --

'Cause looks can kiss and looks can cut you
You look and don't touch, you look and don't touch
'Cause words can kiss and words can cut you
You look and don't touch, look and don't

It's not what you've lost, it's what you've saved
And it's not what it's cost, it's what you've braved
Track Name: Trail Song
For every furred and feathered thing
For hoof and hook and claw and wing
The only truth is traveling
The only truth is traveling
Arrival is illusion oh, the trail the trail is home
Arrival is illusion oh, the journey it is home

For every path and pack and pair
For haw and howl and fey and fair
The landmarks are the storyline,
The chapters alder, birch and pine
To live is motion, stride and steer
To live is motion, stride and steer
Arrival is illusion oh, the trail the trail is home
Arrival is illusion oh, the journey it is home
