Urania Sings

A song about the ancient Greek muse of astronomers, and a man who falls in love with the sky...

Urania Sings

Urania waits in the cold of space
tempts astronmers from their sleep
teaches things beyond the reach of human ken
gives them answers in their dreams
Tide and Time are her lovers
and her heart is a star
she calls the mind to mystery
I heed her call each night at the setting of the sun
learn the song that the heavens sing

when Urania sings she opens up my mind
Urania sings of the mysteries of space and time
she sings, and the heavens open wide
Urania sings and the Universe is mine
when Urania sings

they say astronmers in the ancient days
spent their nights with a beautiful Muse
dark as space are the tresses of her night-black hair
and on her brow the crescent moon
stars join in on the chorus
and she wakes me up at night
with her celestial symphony
I call her name on the essence of a night-long prayer
she shows me secrets in her wings

when Urania sings... (chorus)

Urania calls in the dark of night
lures astronomers from their beds
teaches things that they can never understand
puts strange questions in their heads
I'll never be afraid of the dark again
she's got that moonlight in her eyes
she likes to wear her stardust party dress
she takes me dancing in the skies

when Urania sings... (chorus)
