about

Playing her vintage upright-grand piano, at home in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada, Allison Crowe sings of love shadowed by age - "Arthur" ("Would you hold me / If I disappeared now / And if I didn’t know / Who I was").

"Arthur" is part of a double-A-side single release - along with "Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)" – a guitar version of the Patty Griffin tune.

Rubenesque Records Ltd., Canada's independently successful music label, celebrates its tenth anniversary with this characteristically passionate performance pairing.

lyrics

Arthur

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

And the weight of this war
We are fighting
Is a door that is opening
And sighing

You say come back inside
It is warm here
You have seen it out there
And you ran
away

If you lift without strength
Can you move it
Or the sword in this stone
Would you lose it

Are you Arthur
Or only pretending
And this hope you have burned
Are you sending
away

Away, away…

Would you hold me
If I disappeared now
And if I didn’t know
Who I was

Would you stay with me
While I was losing
Or lay down your sword
And run
away

Would you still love me
If I forgot you
If my heart held to
Only a thread

In the flicker of eyes
I would see you
Would you carry me back
from my dread
away

Away, 'way, away

away, away
