Hoping 04:22
Hoping I was called to testify- I knew could not lie I was hoping- I was hoping I was called to testify- I thought that I might die I was hoping- I was hoping ... That we were on the same side I was left beside the sea- by a love I could not keep I was hoping- I was hoping I was found while I lay asleep- by the god of ecstasy I was hoping- I was hoping ... That he would fall in love with me He closed my eyes so I might see- just what he saw in me I was hoping- I was hoping He closed my eyes so I might see- what would be are destiny I was hoping- I was hoping ... He wouldn't make a fool of me He made a wine that tastes so sweet- from the grapes of liberty I was hoping- I was hoping He poured a wine that tastes so sweet- said play the fool and be set free I was hoping- I was hoping ... This wasn't just some crazy dream I was called to testify- I knew could not lie I was hoping- I was hoping I was called to testify- I thought that I might die I was hoping- I was hoping ... That we were on the same side

Kings & Butterflies Part the sea of illusion You are the destination Heaven's in your eyes... Take off that dusty coat Make heaven where you stand May peace be where you go Go to the light... go to the light...go to the light... Return to paradise There once was a king Who dreamt he was a butterfly Who dreamt he was a king... He journeyed through the crystal visions Through the caves of all creation Silent angels by his side Go to the light... go to the light...go to the light... Return to paradise There once was a king Who dreamt he was a butterfly Starlit flowers lead him home Go to the light... go to the light...

Lullaby (The Farther I Fell) The farther I fell- the closer I came to you In darkness I sleep- it brings me to the morning sun That shines like the stars- that sing so softly in the cold dark night A sweet lullaby that warms me like the sun As I lay asleep- all I do is dream of you The pictures I keep- bring me pleasure all through the night Near is the dawn- through the darkness I call to you A desert flower that blooms- if only for a day Night into day- through the darkness I come to you Like a flower that blooms- if only for the sun You are the rain- you gave me drink in the desert heat You are the sun- I swallow the rain Day into night- night into day You are the sun- you are the rain You are the stars- you are the sky You are mine- you are mine You are my- sweet lullaby The farther I fell- the closer I came to you In darkness I sleep- it brings me to the morning sun That shines like the stars- that sing so softly in the cold dark night A sweet lullaby that warms me like the sun...

Night Life 03:10
Nightlife What really happened- why am I afraid of the phone? Locked in the kitchen- watching the Twilight Zone Where is the nightlife- in this ghost town How far must one travel to have a good time What really matters- I’m just a few feet from the door Here at this table- on this linoleum floor Where is the nightlife- in this ghost town How far must one travel to leave it behind And oh for someone to talk to… And oh for something to do… I should be grateful- the sky hasn’t fallen on me I shouldn’t be jealous of people I don’t want to be And where is the nightlife- in this ghost town How far must one travel to get around… And where is the nightlife- and where are the streetlights And what’s your address now that you’re back in town

All God’s Children All God’s children need love and understanding And all God’s children need time to find out who they are And all God’s children feed on what we hand them We’re all God’s children- no matter who we think they are… All God’s children get up in the morning And all God’s children go reaching for their coffee cup All God’s children read the morning paper They read about the world no matter how thing really are… Children fear when they hear that no one understands them All I pray is someday we might all understand the freedom All God’s children board the train on Monday And all God’s children collect money in a paper cup All God’s children know from what we tell them They’re all God’s children no matter they think they are… All God’s children come home in the evening And all God’s children eat dinner while they watch the news All God’s children learn from what we show them The pictures of the world- no matter how things really are… Children fear when they hear that no one understands them All I pray is someday we might all understand the freedom

GlitterKids 04:29
Glitter Kids She’s just a little girl lost in her own mind She thinks its pitiful- it’s just the course of time I think she’s beautiful- like a rocket to the sky She’s just a little girl lost in her own mind Oh won’t you go to Sunshine’s birthday party after all -it doesn’t matter what you wear Oh won’t you go to Sunshine’s birthday party after all All the glitter kids are there She’s just a little girl lost in space and time She thinks she’s lost her soul- it’s the moment that she’ll find Things can be beautiful- like rockets in the sky She’s just a little girl lost in space and time Oh won’t you go to Sunshine’s birthday party after all -it doesn’t matter what you wear Oh won’t you go to Sunshine’s birthday party after all All the glitter kids are there She sits home all alone lost in her own mind She glues glitter to a fishing pole- sits back and wonders why Things can’t be beautiful- like glitter in the sky I see glitter everywhere she goes- I see glitter in her eyes Oh won’t you go to Sunshine’s birthday party after all -it doesn’t matter what you wear Oh won’t you go to Sunshine’s birthday party after all All the glitter kids are there All the glitter kids are there

Open The Door We got caught on the borderline In the uniform of the enemy I’m beginning to wonder more and more Just what is it that makes me so unsure I may be confused- but I am never bored Open the door- open the door for me Open the door- open the door for me We got lost among the innocent In the swelling of - the rising tide I’m beginning to wonder more and more Just what is it that broke us to the floor When we close our eyes- can we see the shore Open the door- open the door for me Open the door- open the door for me I’m waiting on the borderline Been here all along- waiting patiently I’m beginning to wonder more and more Just what it is that we’ve been fighting for If you are left alone- who has won the war Open the door- open the door for me Open the door- open the door for me

Bittersweetleaf (free) 03:49
BitterSweetLeaf In these four walls I held so tight Like Superman in kryptonite Until I heard my lover’s call I knew I had no choice- but to fall… Summers pass and winters call- I fall Promise of a coming spring- I fall Trust I will be born again- I fall… Promise of a coming spring- I fall Remembrance of a summer’s night Bittersweet I’ve worn the heat- I fall Bittersweet- bittersweet The sweet taste of it all… In these four walls I held so tight

about

Angelina Bentley & the Cosmic Party... a stoney, sexy blend of dream-pop, folk rock mixed with a bit of alternative new age..."Stevie Nicks meets Annie Lennox on the way to Enya's castle... soothes, inspires, transports…”
Celestial songstress Angelina Bentley has emerged from her chrysalis to create Angelina Bentley & the Cosmic Party with more than just a little bit of help from her friends... her offering is a new album called "Kings & Butterflies"... it explores the nature of illusion (inspired by Zuangzi's Butterfly Dream ) and the return or Awakening to the light of one's Authentic Self. This project was created to take the listener from one emotional space to another expanding on the themes of light and dark and the fusion of the two...

"I LOVE this cd and have been listening to it since it first came out. Ange's music is so gorgeous and positively habit-forming I come back again and again and again to hear the Goddess coming through her remarkable voice that expresses a beauty and depth that moves and invites me to see more, feel more, be more alive."
