Track Name: Evergreen
"EVERGREEN"
Words and music by N.R. Robertson

I want to live in fantasy
I want to know eternity
I want to love unendingly
In the misty realm of Evergreen

I saw a girl with yellow hair
Her windy smile so free and fair
She looked with eyes like the purple moon
Of the misty realm of Evergreen

Oh, Evergreen!
Can you take me there?
Take me where I can live without a care
In the dew-soaked Evergreen trees
Misty Evergreen trees

There is a sweet, undying dream
Oh, mercy mild. Oh, tender things
Before my eyes, a sacred bloom
From the misty realm of Evergreen

Off in the East, through Hemlock trees
The golden dawn I long to see
Oh, ancient sire of the afternoon
May you shine your light on Evergreen

Track Name: Whither, River?
"WHITHER, RIVER?"
Words and music by N.R. Robertson

Standing on the waterside
I feel the breeze and then I feel alive
But I could die and I'd be fine
I'll live forever on the Rhine

People come and people go
A million people that I'll never know
They come to watch the waters flow
And sing their songs upon the Rhine

Whither, River? Where will your water flow?
And will the ferrymen keep rowing along?
Whither, River? Take me where I ought to go
Where I won't have to hear them singing their songs

Dreaming of a perfect day
When I won't have to watch you float away
My skin will sag and I'll turn grey
Forever in the Rhine I'll lay

Whither, River? Where will your water flow?
And will the ferrymen keep rowing along?
Whither, River? Take me where I ought to go
Where I won't have to hear them singing their songs

Whither, River? Take what you want from me
And when you're finished you can wash me away
Whither, River? Something I could never be!
My curiosity has made me this way
