about

Evander is a unicorn in my unfolding fantasy series, The Chronicles of Elderbrook, coming with a double-album soundtrack.

lyrics

Verse One:

There are seas alive, moving in Evander’s eyes:
They tell of ageless nights, centuries of souls on fire…
Love me in the moonlight! Press me to your silken hide;
Set me down, by the River where Evander rides.

Chorus:

And I think you know what it takes to give:
You’ve got love as deep as the earth!
I would fling my soul to Kalinothorn
Just to ride with you, Evander.

In the morning - you surrender
In the evening - you remember

Verse Two:

Just a call from the Unicorn sends me into haunted sleep;
Now you’re here an’ we’re talking, feel my soul keeping time with you…
Fold me in the shadows! Wrap me in your silken mane;
Now the insurrection is whispering Evander’s name...

Chorus:

And I think you know... etc (as above)

Won’t you love me - in the moonlight?
Won’t you roll me - in the shadows?
Won’t you love me - in the moonlight…

In the morning - you surrender
In the evening - you remember
Just a call from the unicorn
