​Crystal Singer

This song is by Anne Harlan Prather and appears on the compilation Space Heroes and Other Fools (1983) by ​Julia Ecklar, ​Anne Harlan Prather and ​Leslie Fish.

I'm a woman of Fuerte
I'm Killashandra Ree
And music's been my mistress
And music's broken me
It's almost unendurable
To have made it so far
Only to be told
You can sing your song no more
I'm a woman of Fuerte
I'm Killashandra Ree
And I have gone to sing my song
Where I can be free.

And I will leave the opera stage
Without a hurting word
In a glorious silent exit
My agony unheard.
And when I have departed
No one else will see.
My shame or my distress
No they'll not pity me.

I'm a woman of Fuerte
I'm Killashandra Ree
And I'm a crystal singer
No they'll not look down on me.

Sing softly sweet crystal
And help me to forget
My enemies and tormentors
The terrors I have met.
Sing me crystal mountain
A symphony of hue
And I'll sing you a love song,
Endless, ever new.

And when I've lived a hundred years
Two hundred, maybe three
There'll be no specter from my past
To see, or laugh at me.
And I'll have lived my life
The way I want it to be.
Yes I'm a crystal singer
And I'm forever free.
