I had a revelation, as I fell asleep last night A true illumination, that put a spotlight on my life. Here I’ve been yearning, burning, dreaming all this time, And I suddenly realized it’s all in my mind If I ever want to talk to someone Who deals in possibilities, Someone who can hear what’s on my mind, Who can be my eyes when I can’t see. When I’m feeling down, when I’m feeling blue, ‘Cause of all of life’s insanity All I need is a conversation with me All I saw were mountains, so impossible to climb. It was all about the wanting, and feeling I was running out of time. Here I’ve been going for the goal line all these years, And I suddenly realized, I’ve got it all right here. There’s a voice inside me giving me the clues, And I’m not up for paying someone else’s dues. I’m not gonna worry, I’m not gonna hurry I’ll walk in my own shoes, And when I’m falling apart I’ll be listening to my heart… If I ever want to talk to someone Who deals in possibilities, Someone who can hear what’s on my mind, Who can be my eyes when I can’t see. When I’m feeling down, when I’m feeling blue, ‘Cause of al of life’s insanity All I need is a conversation with someone who loves me Understands me, knows what I can be… All I need is a conversation, I just need a conversation I just need a conversation…. with me.

The night turns to day and i wide awake swimming in your eyes I don't want to pretend any longer I open my arms and i am ready this time around to just - be. I wanna swim in the sun, I wanna dance in the rain I wanna feel our hearts beating the same I wanna be with you I wanna stand on the ledge, and jump into your dreams I wanna kiss your lips and let our body scream I wanna be with you - I know you feel it too. I 'm a hopeless romantic but I 'm terribly misunderstood they don't know how to take my intensity so I end up faking it and fighting it hiding it, denying it And I don't wanna hold back like they held back on me I 'm not a victim of their insanity... ohhh... I wanna be... open I wanna be... true I wanna be in this moment Our love’s alive we don’t own it I don’t want you, I need you You’re the air that I breathe through My whole goal in life is to see you Be the mother to my universe And every time I rhyme you Inspire the truest verse It’s not about lust and passion Or what’s in fashion You erupt in laughing no matter How tough I’m acting So for now let’s be together In fact let’s be forever I wanna be... open I wanna be with you and so I 'm getting off that ocean floor crashing through your open door I wanna stay up all night, till the morning sunrise I wanna wake up with you, every day a surprise I wanna be with you I wanna stand on the ledge and jump into your dreams i wanna kiss your lips and let our body scream I wanna be with you I know you feel it too. I remember the first time you kissed me I am ready this time around to just... be

Woke up this morning and I felt a brand new feeling So different from the yearning of my past that I am leaving Still am not believing this gift that I’m receiving But I know where I'll be going and it makes me feels so good I feel so inspired, yeah I’m feeling so much lighter My dreams are getting brighter Looks like they're comin’ true I am everything I need to be the best Everything I am is all I ever need to be I can be the girl who wants to show the world Everything I am, cuz what I am is all I need to be Everything you do in life comes from your inner dreamin’ Just put it out there, you never know where life is leading Every new direction takes you to a brand new place Every door that opens leads you face to face with your Inner desires, You can feel so much lighter Your dreams feels so brighter They just open up to you It takes some time to realize Everything I have inside Is everything I want to be But I know the answers I’ve taken chances To be the best I can I feel so inspired, yeah I’m feeling so much lighter Cuz everything I am is all I need to be

I’m dreaming, I’m being, freeing, I’m feeling Inside out and outside in I’m seeing, I’m healing, I’m jumping I’m deeply In love inside out and outside in And it’s taking me so long to find the words to sing this song Cos in my lifetime of searching and crying the well was drying Inside out and outside in Never reaching, nor lasting, just fleeting, greetings Inside out and outside in So I never thought it come true to be standing here right in front of you. I want to tumble with you inside outside and round and round Till we sleep in the rain clouds I want to feel everything about you and you of me Inside outside, tumbling free… you and me Lying, denying everything pining inside out and outside in Promised me rainbows and stars with love pillows Inside out and outside in But now I know the truth And it’s only here between me and you Take a good look at your other side There’s no need for us to compromise When we’re inside each other’s lives Tumbling tumbling, tumbling tumbling Feeling inspired being ignited Inside out and outside in, into you…

I'm an enigma in my own living room Can't seem to get my tongue to hit the words I want to say and everything I feel, all that I am I throw out … naked I'm yearning for the outcome of my days To caress my childhood fairytales so tormented inside I stand and wait What are you waiting for? To run with the wind in my face and swim in the deepest oceans What are you fighting for? An escape from my own self-defeating consternation and to take the step, be willing to learn wait for my time, wait for my turn and listen…. to the stillness The stillness, the stillness, the stillness The stillness, the stillness, the stillness Hold my hand and guide me 'cause courage seems a lonely word This body, this voice this mind of mine Wants to shake my bleeding heart You know, you know it’s love that changes all You know, you know that love’s so powerful Time does not matter for ever more True love breaks barriers, unlocks the door When you live in stillness, there’s no smoke filled bars It’s more like meditating from a hope filled star That’s winking from the top of a mountain The stillness, is that last penny, that you dropped in a fountain Stillness can create your spiritual mapping Stillness is exactly what lets miracles happen It’s nothing but a decision A state of mind a vision That less can be more even if you’re stressed to the core Chill be still, notice where your sins hide Before you get out there, you gotta go inside To the stillness…

Turn left, turn right I can’t fight Once here, now gone I can’t go on Once more I’ve found My heart is sore Last night I lost light To claim you You left for the moon Now I’m in this empty room. I hear your laugh Above all else Your smile, all the while Remind myself I hate feeling So vulnerable It’s you, it’s your fault I’m miserable You left for the moon Now I’m in this empty room And I am drunk On publicity And you dead drunk Too low to see Rooftops, treetops Are all one and the same Silence ripping Everything I learned to blame You left for the moon Do you miss me too You left for the moon It doesn’t deserve you You left for the moon Do you miss me too You left for the moon Now I’m in this empty room

1. Days in November travelling long - Finding the wisdom in every song taking a journey through open white plains - guided by moonlight keeping me sane searching for answers in every town - sending back postcards of lessons I’ve found taking the moment to find inner peace - crossing the rivers of childhood memories I REMEMBER DREAMING WITH YOU I REMEMBER IT’S EASY TO DO I REMEMBER THE POSSIBILITIES I REMEMBER BEING FREE 2. Days in November out of my skin - touching a new life of golden dreams I see your face in yesterday’s sorrow - welcome the new moon of tomorrow CHORUS (Bridge): Miles of wasteland weighs me down But when I think of you I have the strength to carry on strength to carry on I REMEMBER DREAMING WITH YOU I REMEMBER IT’S EASY TO DO I REMEMBER THE POSSIBILITIES I REMEMBER BEING FREE I REMEMBER…. DREAMING WITH YOU I REMEMBER…. OH… DREAMING WITH YOU, WITH YOU, WITH YOU

1. Typical heatwave. Stuck in a jam and I can’t get out. Momentary relapse. Climbin’ mountains what I’m thinkin about. Caught in the traffic. Can we escape the jungle to hide? Take a super highway. Follow our goals, put them in sight. CHORUS Goin’ on a - bushwalk. Goin’ no a walkabout. Gonna - feel alive! Solve our problems we have inside. Take control! Energize out thoughts to solve and Cure the world! We can start right now. 2. Racial freedom. Trapped in society, I’m losing my sobriety. Momentary madness. Can we cure it through psychiatry? Need for solutions. War, crime, culture, family struggle. Time for education. Get back to our roots and unify this nation. CHORUS What we have right here is somethin’ to rely on. But we have to watch our step to ensure a future for our children, nothin’ to take for granted. Find some time to think about the hazards and save our planet. CHORUS x 2 Goin’ on a bushwalk Goin’ on a walkabout Etc

1. You know I love you, you know I love you, yes I do You know above all, you know above all I’ll always be true If you doubt me, well you’re wrong That’s why darling I’m singing this song CHORUS Because I’ll stand by you, cos I love you so I’ll stand by you, cos I love you so I’ll stand, yes I’ll stand by you 2. You know I miss you, you know I miss you when you’re not there You know I want you, I want you with me everywhere And when I’m gone I’ll still be there I’ll be with you forever, everywhere CHORUS And I’ll be near to you, cos I love you so I’ll be near to you, cos I love you so I’ll always be near to you BRIDGE You know, you know, its love that changes all You know, you know, that love’s so powerful Time does not matter for evermore True love breaks barriers, unlocks the door We know how time doesn’t exist But when you’re gone the synergies missed We got that feeling of perfect bliss You had me our energies kissed I’ve been down that road of sorrow You got me looking for tomorrow Can’t wait till you’re next to me You inspire the best in me. You know I love you You know I love you Don’t you doubt me CHORUS You know I’ll stand by you, cos I love you so Yeah I’ll stand by you, cos I love you so I’ll stand, yes I’ll stand by you I’ll be near to you, cos I love you so I’ll be near to you, cos I love you so I’ll always be near to you I’ll be close to you, cos I love you so I’ll be close to you, cos I love you so I’ll always, I’ll always love you

Midnight, fire light, feeling the silence Missing moments I take for granted Feeling the closeness, feeling the moments with you Will I continue to be all you’re wanting? ‘Cause I want you to last for my lifetime. Feeling the sweetness, feeling the lightness of you You came to me freely, and I dearly cling on… You washed away fragments of teardrops and we moved on Holding on to each other’s dreams We cling on… Bravely I reach out and tell you my secrets Lost in the treetops I search for your presence And I’m drifting downwards into the softness of you. You came to me freely, and I dearly cling on… You washed away fragments of teardrops and we moved on Holding on to each other’s dreams We cling on… And we never let go… We cling on and we flow We flow… We cling on… We cling on… (You came to me freely and I dearly cling on) We cling on (You washed away fragments of teardrops) We cling on We cling on

Spinning around the world I’ve been tossed and turned, I’ve been around standing my ground, oh yeah Never once have I questioned my life, my dreams inside, hiding my pride, ooh But I feel so new, my blood’s coursing through my veins And I feel so true I have changed CHORUS: I’m alive - I feel brand new I’m alive – because of you I’m alive – you’re a part of my soul I’m alive – you make me whole Verse 2 I couldn’t catch a break, my heart would ache, Not celebrate, my fate was empty Then you came into my life, turned on the light my wrongs went right, my dreams so plenty And I feel so good, like I should I have all the strength I need today CHORUS Bridge I’ve never felt this way before I feel electric to the core I feel so good SOLO CHORUS (repeat) This is for anyone who ever doubts themselves or feels like they can’t achieve their dreams You’ll find deep inside all the strength and courage you need to come alive

1. Something deep inside me is hiding in the shadows Here is where you’ll find me, where no one else will follow I now reveal to you The truth hiding in the dark CHORUS The secret of my heart hidden in my soul it’s time to let you know tell you how I feel inside 2. Until now I’ve been dancing all around my feelings I never spoke the truth to you It’s a new beginning, instead of just another ending oh.. I’m coming alive, right in front of you It’s coming apart CHORUS The secret of my heart hidden in my soul it’s time to let you know tell you how I feel inside Imprisoned in my heart is a love that reaches out to you If you are willing to - take the chance - on me BRIDGE I’ve said more than I can say with words I need someone to show me what to do Give me the strength to let you know that I Love You, it’s.. CHORUS The secret of my heart hidden in my soul it’s time to let you know tell you how I feel inside Imprisoned in my heart is a love that reaches out to you If you are willing to - take the chance - on me

Feeling in all places Falling into it fast Seeing the journey Will you join me? Is it what we really want? Can we make it through To carry the water well? Heal the holes, bury the old… But I can’t foresee what my future will bring, So, I’m calling the silent prophet within. Being entwined, (we are one) We hold human pain, (and share the laughter) Will we forgive our childhood memories and bury the blame Is it what we really want? Can we make it through To carry the water well? Heal the holes, bury the old… But I can’t foresee what my future will bring, So, I’m calling the silent prophet within. Bridge: Senses tell me true What am I destined to do? Touch me, I’m feeling connected with my truth The perfect life, me and you We are here to live our lives With nothing to prove, but to carry the water well and heal the holes, bury the old… and when you can’t foresee what your future will bring Just call the silent prophet within I’m calling…. the silent prophet. Calling….

1. Knew it was over when he emailed a letter sayin’ ‘Goin’ back to Florida’ So I went on alone, flew ten thousand miles on my own One way trip to Hollywood Tried to relax to the sixteen track But nothing seems to be groovin’ Home too far away, seems like forever I hear my inner voice say CHORUS I can touch the sun I can touch the moon Spin around the world And make it my own living room I can be who I want Find the love I need And all I need Is to trust in me 2. Feel like some days, its just never enough Kicking the ground, making no sound, no sound Feelin’ numb inside, its a lonely place without you, without you Drivin’ down the West coast freeway Clear blue water never suffers Breathe deep, I feel the wind blow My heart beats louder and louder

about

gilli moon's 6th music creation, the stillness speaks of arriving at a place of inner-ease and personal strength, of self-knowing and understanding. It talks of harmony, and peace (personal and world), of passion and prophesies, of harmony and conflict, of assurance and doubt, of love and loss... (the dual meanings of life and existence in this world that we all can't deny.) Soulful melodies, rich harmonies and cleverly crafted songs: the stillness is a brilliant continuation of gilli’s earlier albums.

The album combines soothing piano work, soaring RnB-esque melodies, Pop beats not out of place on a Lily Allen record and a warm vocal presence that when drenched in gilli’s penchant for the artistic and the colorful, brings to life an album of grace, beauty and warmth. The album’s defining moments include the soul-infused ‘Conversation With Me’, the beautiful and fantastically catchy ‘Outside In’ and the upbeat zeal of tracks like ‘I’m Alive’ and ‘I Am’, both of which could be placed quite comfortably next to Alanis Morissette’s work, thanks largely to their fantastic choruses and clever instrumentation. But it's the title track (+ video), "The Stillness" that speaks her innate truth of riding the roller coaster and finding inner truth and peace, paralleling the outward life of this multi-faceted artist, gilli moon.

Her joy for the piano are evident here, interwoven into a tapestry of sounds and rhythms that range from soft whispering ballads, to grooving, evocative and energetic full band productions. Let it be said, however, that the "growing up pains" and angst driven past are no more. This album marks the coming of age of gilli moon, with sophisticated sounds, strong and positive lyrical content, and deeper, experienced production values.

This album is elegant. It's sophisticated. It's revealing of the human heart. Once again, like all of gilli moon's concept albums, she takes us on a journey: this time, to her inner peace, inner quiet, silence and, importantly, self-connection, amongst a tumultuous, roller coaster world that we live in. It defines her idea of being the master of your own destiny, and the ability to stay connected to your higher purpose, no matter the circumstances, outside forces or influences: the calm within a storm; being centred amongst chaos.

The artwork of the album is definitive of this dichotomy, art that gilli designed, being also a visual artist. On the front cover, gilli sleeps, inside the turmoil of her evocative paint. The back cover, on the other hand, has her eyes open, confident, and revealing. She stands convinced, amongst the blaze, amongst the spinning, still, appealing and transformed, like Isis in Ancient Greece, or Matreya, goddess of women.

Ultimately, gilli moon's new album, the stillness, takes the listener on a journey through gilli's love stories, life lessons and observations of the world, with her own stamp on musicality and performance. There is nothing like gilli moon. You can't put her in a box, and she doesn't intend to be in one.
