Liner Notes: 

rrrrrrrolling 5ths.... that means what you could do in the beginning of the song you can't do (or remember) at the end of the song....
This is my favourite.
PS. And I have never heard of beguiled(I need a new dictionary, pronounciation)


Enlightened and Restored
© 2020 Cindy Prince

I'm restored with my bare feet in the grass
I'm restored seeing a selfless act
I'm restored when I know all the facts
I'm restored

I'm enlightened in a meditative state
I'm enlightened knowing no hate
I'm enlightened standing at heaven's gate
I'm enlightened

I'm enlightened and restored
When hearts are open wide
I'm healing and renewed
When all my tears have dried
I'm enlightened and restored
When I'm in the wild outside
Enlightened and restored
Once more

I'm healing when I have a restful sleep
I'm healing when I have treasures to keep
I'm healing when I know my love is deep
I'm healing

I'm renewed with the touch of a child
I'm renewed when I let myself be wild
I'm renewed and often beguiled
I'm renewed

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh, how I love this! I got goosebumps all up and down my arms and am in awe! Thank you so much!

WOW!! I just can't help but think of this in relation to the current pandemic, as in one of the anti-maskers finally being enlightened to the reality of this most dangerous of times, and only when it hits too close to home do they become "enlightened".
An absolutely wonderful lyric, and a musical and vocal tenderness to match!

You know what, Marthie? I think I like your piano arrangements every bit as much as your voice--and you know I love your voice. You should be a Big Star by now--with me in the front row every night. Perfect reverb on the vocal. Can I ask what you are doing technically to make these recordings? Just...perfection.

Fantastic, fantastic lyrics Cindyrella--you clearly are an inspiration to this woman. PUT AN ALBUM OUT, YOU TWO!!!!!
