Track Name: Wish Upon a Weathervane
"WISH UPON A WEATHERVANE"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

How I long to see lightning in the sky
I gaze into the night until I find a light

And how I long to hear thunder on my ear
Oh, rumble right along and play your thunder song

I'll wish upon a weathervane
I wish that I could feel the rain

Track Name: Delilah
"DELILAH"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Delilah is standing in my bedroom
She came in through my window
Now I can smell her perfume

Desire! I want to kiss Delilah
She's standing on her tiptoes
So now we're eye to eye, yeah

Delilah, every word is true
And everything you knew
Every line for you

Delilah takes pictures for safe keeping
Dreams only when she's sleeping
Cries only when she's weeping

One and only, Delilah makes me lonely
No blanket to unfold me
No telephone to hold me

Delilah, every word is true
And everything you knew
Every line for you

Delilah's smile wide as the sky was
For ever when I see her smiling,
I think about the times when sweet
(Delilah's) eyes were wider than mine were
A chuckle and a wink might suit me
Thank God that I can life about my life

What splendor! A soft and warm November
An echo in the center
A sunny day in winter

And Little Wendy Ira means nothing to Delilah
No dreaming by the fire
No time to just conspire

Track Name: Skid Row
"SKID ROW"
(Written by N. Robertson)

How'd I end up on Skid Row?
Am I reaping what I've sown?
My mind is sick with melancholia
And I can't take anymore

Got the down-and-out disease
Outside begging in the streets
I need a drink to mitigate my pain
While I'm sleeping in the rain

Who has sympathy these days?
My old man just passed away
Destitute old men all look the same
When they're in a common grave

Tell the taxman what you see
Tell him there are folks like me
Out of work and got no place to go
I ain't even got a hole

How'd I end up on Skid Row?

Track Name: Daisy's Name
"DAISY'S NAME"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Ever since she was just three years old
Little Daisy played the piano
And when she reached the seventh degree
She learned to play the Op. 40

Little Daisy's parents were so proud
When she walked across the stage and bowed
The moment Daisy started to play
The judges seemed to know right away
An extraordinary display

Daisy's name put the other girls to shame
Claudia and Rosemarie didn't stand a chance, you see
Every little melody Daisy played so faithfully

All the news reporters in her town
Said her interpretation was profound
The talent agent started to call her every day
And though she'd no desire for life upon the stage

She rose from rags to fortune and fame
She played to universal acclaim
Now Daisy's a celebrity name

Daisy's name never can the world defame
All the praise and accolades kept inside her dossier
All the men throw big bouquets when she plays the polonaise

Track Name: Magdalena
"MAGDALENA"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

I see you
Your eyes are blue
Magdalena, I'm looking at you

Gentle smile
And hair so fine
Magdalena, would you be mine?

Those old sourires won't make me happy anymore
Oh, how I long for Magdalena I adore, for sure
I'm knocking at your door

She is like the moon
a la Claire de Lune
Apple of my eye
Aphrodite sighs when she walks by

I don't care what clothes you wear
Magdalena, you're taking me there

Track Name: Appalachian Stew
"APPALACHIAN STEW"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

If you're feeling sad and lonely
If you're feeling sad and lonely, too
There's a place you can go
When you get there you'll know
Because you'll never want to leave there once you do

And if you're feeling kind of lonesome
If you're feeling genuinely blue
Take a trip with me through the sycamore trees
To an Appalachian dreamland point of view

On top of Old Smokey
Where everything's low-key
And the stars are bright in the Tennessee night
And when it's time for supper,
Cooking up some Appalachian Stew

I'll climb up this pine tree
I put miles behind me
And I feel so alive in the morning dew
And smelling that rosemary makes me want some Appalachian Stew

Track Name: Hazy Dream
"HAZY DREAM"
(Written by Nolan Robertson and Hayden Miller)

I've been dreaming a hazy dream
Sleeping underneath a lazy tree
And if you're looking to dream with me
Close your eyes and join my reverie

Oh, I was searching this sleepy ol' isle
Looking for a place to lie down for awhile

Wanna sleep through the day
Gonna dream it away
Gonna doze into the sweet afternoon

So come dream a little dream with me
Find a place beneath my lazy tree
I'll sing you sweet melodies

And if you've been wasting away
After day, after day
I think you should turn my way
You'd rather be hittin' the hay
Whatcha say? Whatcha say?
You'd rather be hittin' the hay

So come dream a little dream with me
Find a place beneath my lazy tree
I swear I'll sing you to sleep

Hey, kid, there's a lot to see
When the clouds are underneath your feet
And you can be who you want to be

Track Name: Maximilian
"MAXIMILAN"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Oh, Maximilian I'm calling your name
But you refuse to give an answer
I know a busy life can make you insane
But you don't have to hide away, sir

You do not mind spending your time
Just drinking wine until you're blind
Oh, Maximilian I'm calling your name
But you refuse to give an answer

Oh, Maximilian I wanna know why
Why do you chose to be a stranger
I only see you when you're waving goodbye
Not like when we were just teenagers

You'd hang around most every day
"Hello. Can Max come out to play?"
Oh, we would daydream all our cares away

Oh, Maximilian I wanna know why
Why do you chose to be a stranger?

Oh, Maximilian I'm singing your name
But you are just an empty shadow
Although your face is very clear in my brain
You will refuse to hear my canto

Just say the word and you'll be heard
I will return a songless bird
Oh, Maximilian I'm singing your name
But you are just an empty shadow

Track Name: Taking Me There
"TAKING ME THERE"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Little Wendy Ira sleeping in the grass
I could hear her laugh sometimes
But everything must come to pass

Flowers on the highway, flowers on my mind
With flowers growing everywhere
How'd you treat my so unkind?

With a wave of her hair, she is taking me there

Little Wendy Ira dreaming all alone
Paper moon and canvas skies
And swimming in the deep unkown

With a wave of her hair, she is taking me there

And here she comes in yellow and green
A fragrant colorful ring of dahlias crowned upon her head in springtime
She sees her world in different hues
My lovely colorful muse
And when I need her I can call her anytime,
For she is mine
Track Name: Fancy
"FANCY"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Every little thing she does is fancy
All the clothes she wears are so in style
She smokes her fancy cigarets
And talks with all the boys she's met
At all the newest clubs that are so fancy

Almost every night she goes out dancing
At the most exclusive discotheques
She looks as if she's on TV
Or posing in a magazine
Don't you know this girl is oh so fancy

But in her mind, we all know
She is cold and so alone
Her time at home spent beside a quiet telephone
Just waiting for a ring
A call about anything
What drudgery, a life that's lived without a dozen friends beside you

When she is at home she feels so lonesome (all the time)
Lost without a whim to entertain
Her life is just tomfoolery
Her clothes and fancy jewelry
Are all she has to keep her feeling wholesome

Track Name: Life in the Mirror
"LIFE IN THE MIRROR"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Life in mirror is not like it seems
If you're not careful you can change in the mirror
It's quite like a dream
Everything happening and

Things would be clearer if I could perceive
Tendrils and chaparrals and
Things could be clearer if you would believe

Life in the mirror with you
Is a dream that I'm hoping will never come true
And I'm hoping I'll find it in you

Track Name: Moonbeams
"MOONBEAMS"
(Written by Nolan Robertson)

Moonbeams
I'm hung up on moon dreams
There's something different in the way you say my name these days
It's different even though you sound the same

Moonbeams
Those silvery moon gleams
It's what you're doing when i'm sleeping in my bed at night
You do it when you know it isn't right

And often times I ask you why
Never once will you reply
Tell me why, tell me why

And every time we say goodnight
There's a sadness in your smile
Tell me why, Tell me why
