about

gilli moon's second studio CD, and first official worldwide release, temperamental angel landed gilli moon on international stages with her self-driven guerrilla internet campaign, “revolution hits the streets.” In conjunction with the Bricks-and-Mortar Retail Release date, and before any other artist used the Internet as a marketing tool, gilli moon pioneered the cybermusic frontier, making e-waves with the first "artist controlled" internet distribution.

temperamental angel delivers us gilli moon’s personality crisis, emotions and sensuality. It’s edgy, emotional and alternative juxtaposed with gilli’s soulful female voice and powerful rock and sweet ballads. gilli moon who wrote all the songs on the album, also produced the album, with co-producer Evan J. Beigel in North Hollywood, Los Angeles. The album sends powerful messages about self empowerment, embracing the full range of human passions and emotions that our personalities express. The album has been produced in a way to capture gilli's raw and sensitive emotions combined with her unique, naturally trained voice. Keeping with her vision, much of the production was spontaneous following a very organic approach, with all recording using live instruments.

Title track winner of the Song Expo 2001, Benelux and No. 7 in the Top 15 of the Chicago Star Newspapers Albums of the Year. Hot song picks: "Temperamental Angel" (plus music video), "Naked", "Disgrace" and "Touch Me".

It marks gilli's first true epigraph of what she is really about - raw, organic, sensitive yet strong.

Track Name: The Opening Ceremony: Communication
we all have different masks we wear. we are complex individuals with complex personalities. we all have multi-dimensional personas. as we reveal the hidden layers to discover our true selves… we are still complex. i am sweet, loving, angelic, and angry, unheard, demonic. i have wept and I have laughed. i have lived. i am alive. i mirror you like you mirror me. I unveil the masks you wear. we live the perfect life you and i. war, peace, fight then love. truth, deceit, honor, corruption. lust, hate, warmth, cold. fear, faith, more, then less. success, failure, adventure, stagnation. life is a journey. this is perfection. be brave temperamental angel.
Track Name: Temperamental Angel
sliding in the river
feeling the mud stick between my toes. i’m alive
but my body’s struggling to compose.
i’m thinking… i think too much.
what if i had never experienced this period in my life?
would i have been an ignorant waste of time?
i’m a sucker for conventional romance
and i’ve never truly experienced the chance
to be treated like an angel,
a temperamental angel.

i thought he was cool
but in retrospect i’ve been a fool, pretending…
but then again love is blind.
i’m alone… you’re born alone, you live along, you die alone.
must we accept the cards we’re dealt?
it’s crazy to be denied in life.
i’m a sucker for conventional romance
and i’ve never truly experienced the chance
to be treated like an angel,
a temperamental angel

so will you save me?
i’m waiting for my resurrection.
go on and save me,
i need your true protection.

i’m the type who’ll never walk away from you
but hurry over before i’m broken in to two.
will you treat me like an angel?
even if I’m a temperamental angel?
i’m a sucker for conventional romance
and i’ve never truly experienced the chance
to be treated like an angel,
a devil and an angel.

risk all because there is nothing to lose
Track Name: Plenty
flying, over oceans of empty silence.
floating in my dreams i'm my own innocence.
will i find my arrow where i aimed so high and mighty, and my dignity?
will my pilgrimage into the yonder reach me to the land of plenty?
plenty of love, plenty of life
plenty of time to make things right.
desperate people wanting more than treasure.
reading all the obstacles as life's measure.
will i cross the river to the other side of paradise?.. maybe…
will i see the rainbow like the fairytales my mother told so plenty?
plenty of love, plenty of life
plenty of time to make things right
plenty of peace, plenty of patience
plenty of all the things i deserve.
can somebody hear me?
and all my dreams that jumble up inside?
from different places of my life
like signposts on a foggy road,
where i've been and where i go - they tell me
I’m heading for the land of plenty...
silence, listen to the dream and touch it.
shh, let it come, while I'm blindfolded.
maybe thinking very hard what's in my hand is what i dreamt of yesterday.
maybe if i look around i'll recognize that i've arrived already.
plenty to climb, plenty to become
plenty of oceans and wilderness to conquer
plenty of love, plenty of life
plenty of time to make things right
plenty of peace, plenty of patience
plenty of all the things i deserve
plenty, plenty of everything
promises i make to myself everyday.
let it be, let it rain on me, even on a hot hot day,
so i can remember what I've seen along the way.
i want to take hold of everything i dreamed, i've seen
i'm reading the signs, plenty of signs…
i can hear the child within, calling me
telling me there's plenty, plenty
plenty to climb, plenty to become
plenty of oceans and wilderness to conquer.

for a long time I was afraid of telling you who I was
Track Name: Naked
shaken to the core
fire burns for more
you’ve given me chills like a fire burning deep in a cave
i like getting naked with you.

don’t know about tomorrow
but today it feels alright
let me ease your fear, don’t wanna play with destiny
i like getting naked with you
i like getting naked with you.
running, running away from loneliness
don’t need the answers just need your caress
whenever we’re apart, just want to hear me in your heart
i like getting naked with you
i like getting naked with you.
ease yourself into my shape
don’t think too much
more and more we fit like gloves
just think about my touch.
whenever we’re apart, just want to hear me in your heart
i like getting naked with you
i like getting naked with you.
Track Name: Time
i don’t appreciate the feeling i get when i’m clinging to my rock upside down
why is is always me rolling around, getting pushed to the ground.
i’ll take a minute to stand up tall,
i’ll take a minute to get on the rock
and not fall.
‘cause, time is in my hands,
it’s swimming in my pockets,
tick tock, hickory dock,
time to go and time to stop.
time to run, time to fly,
time to sleep and... time to cry.
i’m running out of moments where i sit alone and contemplate
aching in the morning don’t wanna wake up to any bad days.
i’ll trim the edges and lose the lost,
counting on myself to break the wall
at every cost.
‘cause, time is in my hands,
it’s swimming in my pockets,
tick tock, hickory dock,
time to go and time to stop.
time to run, time to fly,
time to sleep and... time to cry.
why should i wait another minute?
when there’s only seconds left.
time is in my hands,
it’s swimming in my pockets,
tick tock, hickory dock,
time to go and time to stop.
time to run, time to fly,
time to sleep and, time to cry
time is in my hands
it’s swimming in my pockets
tick tock, hickory dock
time to go and time to stop.

silence is solitude
Track Name: Swimming
the time is near
the time too soon
i stumble slowly
from our balloon
i am bewildered.
but I can’t side
against my heart
i am alone again
but close to a start
i will remember.
so tell me why did it end
when all the diamonds slept in our hands?
i lost what I never thought i’d lose
i’m swimming in deep blues
and so we close
this fairytale
will we remember the fun
or the fail?
my heart is kinder.
so tell me when will it end
this deep blue burning of times we spent?
i lost what i never thought I’d find
i’m swimming dark and blind.
i’ve lost track of time, losing my mind,
you’re so unkind, was it all a lie
you can see, it’s meant to be…
... when all the diamonds slept in our hands
i lost what i never thought i’d find
i’m swimming, so tell me
why did it end?
when all the diamonds slept in our hands?
i lost what i never thought i’d lose
i’m swimming
i’m drowning
i’m missing
you

I thought playing second fiddle was the worst, until I played no fiddle at all
Track Name: Disgrace
you don’t control me, my creativity it’s my own mystery your lack of synergy
so don’t suck me into the vortex ‘cause it’s just sex
and I’m tired of playing games.
i’m slowly boiling, quietly seething
with my own feeling i lack the grieving
so don’t suck me into the vortex
‘cause it’s just sex
and i’m tired of playing games.

i gave you everything, you still want more.
i got nothing more to give ‘cause i gave it all before.
you walk on my face, it’s a disgrace
that you give nothing in return is my lesson to learn.

i’m a riot when i’m alone
i think of all the times your words turned my body into stone
yet you suck me into the vortex when we have sex
and i’m tired of playing games.

i gave you everything, you still want more.
i got nothing more to give ‘cause i gave it all before.
you walk on my face, it’s a disgrace
that you give nothing in return is my lesson to learn.

you don’t wanna know how i lost my innocence
i gave my soul and my fingers are worn to the bone
i’m a woman scorned
but . will be born again
again.

you disgrace me
so don’t suck me into the vortex ‘cause it’s just sex
and i’m tired of playing games.

i gave you everything, you still want more.
i got nothing more to give ‘cause i gave it all before.
you walk on my face, it’s a disgrace
that you give nothing in return is my lesson to learn.

on the outside looking in
Track Name: Why Do You Love Me Still?
do you love me still?why do i feel so lonely on such a sunny day
talking to you?
why get so sad and turn away
if i continue to hurt you, why do you love me still?

i try to be so careful with all the words i say
i need your arms around me
i need you to see the beauty in me
why can’t you take my laughter, sweet and so tender
when It’s all i can give?
i don’t feel any wiser
if i’m so wrong for your spirit, why do you love me still?

you’re needing a woman who loves with fortitude
but when she is drowning
how can she save you, how can she know what to do?

i’m laughing, i’m crying
i’m losing, i’m dying
i never do right and you’re
not satisfied, i’m tormented inside.
maybe apart we’re better, where i do not hurt you
and you can be heard.
you have been so forgiving, tell me

why do you love me?
why do you love me?
why do you love me?
why do you love me still?

i will not resent, i will not pretend, i will not hurt, nor revenge be sought
Track Name: Touch Me
blinded like a fool I always cried
i never knew i could feel this way inside
never wanted before
never knocked on my door.
tell me like it is when I’m with you
i want the boom and the crash and the symbols too
i wanna tear down the door
i want more and more and more.

the resurrection of our inception is when you had to
drive through the desert just to find me.
my gravitation in your direction
you can do anything you want to satisfy me.

you can – touch me – anywhere you want to
i won’t be offended.
rush to me – and every time you do I’ll
do it right back to you – do it right back. it’s coming on strong i can feel it in my bones
don’t leave me in the dark of the catacombs
i wanna tear down your door
like never before.

i’ll tell you what i want i’ll tell you what to do
suffocating in your every move
will you give me some more?
while I swim around the floor.

i can feel the crush, i can feel the rush
i will drive through the desert, just to find you.
i’m liberated, satiated
you can do anything you want, cause I love what you do.

you can – touch me – anywhere you want to
i won’t be offended.
rush to me – and every time you do I’ll
do it right back to you

and while you do i will be yours…

i can feel the crush, i can feel the rush
i will drive through the desert, just to find you.
i’m liberated, satiated
you can do anything you want, cause i love what you do.

you can – touch me – anywhere you want to
i won’t be offended.
Lust for me – and every time you do i’ll
do it right back to you.
rush to me – anytime you need to
see my hands extended.
crush into me
and all the while you do i’ll
do it right back to you – do it right back.

i’m a renegade, an only child, a survivor and i have unleashed the warrior spirit within.
Track Name: Alive
how peaceful is the sun, when it shows itself behind the clouds.
it takes me a while to feel it’s kindness but i’m learning to feel again.

running though faded dreams I am surely to touch some sorrow
but now i am rising through and I’m losing the hurting.

i’m touching the butterfly within me, it guides me.
i’m sailing through oceans towards thee, towards thee
i’m alive, i’m alive.

lost in my thoughts l was drowning, was drowning
but every time i listen to my heart i’m learning to feel again.
blood seeps out slowly, it takes time to heal the wound
but i’ve lifted the dagger and i’m losing the hurting.

i’m touching the butterfly within me, it guides me.
i’m dancing through deserts towards thee, towards thee
i’m alive, i’m alive.

weight on me, weight on me, lift it and run.
must I recall the memories of my childhood to move on?


i’m touching the ladybug within me, it guides me.
i’m sailing through oceans towards thee, towards thee
i’m alive.

......but every time i listen to my heart
i come alive.

leaping empty handed into the void, i offer myself to you.
