Anonymous day Shining shining views Shining shining lights What’s happening to me The way out What’s happening to me The way out I feel like diving Always more and more I am trying To come out I cannot remember Where I have to go I want to wake up When I was born Shining shining views Shining shining lights Shining shining views Shining shining lights The skyscrapers are surrounding me I feel like floating Higher and higher Unknown crossing Without the way out Is trying to open My mind Shining shining views Shining shining lights Shining shining views Shining shining lights What’s happening to me The way out What’s happening to me Where is the paradise Shining shining views Shining shining lights Shining lights shining lights

Black out 05:16
Black out To wake up late In the noise of the morning And suddenly you hear The telephone To clock in present You feel well In a long day that sees No end The kettle is whistling She comes close In her beautiful blue Uniform Smokey grey In the room Your sixth sense tells you What you want, what you want Sometimes, you feel well Sometimes, you feel ill Your things are Surrounding you To get away from everything Searching for your answers They ups and downs That follow you Ups and downs that follow you To wake up again And feel nothing Hoping to day Everything will change To clock in present You feel well In a long day that sees No end Sometimes, you feel well Sometimes, you feel ill Your things are Surrounding you To get away from everything Searching for your answers They ups and downs That follow you Up and down Follow you

The neon light intensely shines The fishers already cast their nets cast The golden minnows tremble tremble The net falls falls on a sinking diver It drops drops endlessly In the new world where it drowns Another thing drags me down I can’t sail over and over Another thing drags me down I cannot breathe but I’m alive And another thing drags me down I can’t sail over and over And another thing drags me down I cannot breathe but I’m alive And swim the minnows to their hideaway And I recall recall there was more favor As in the new world that’s so near so close My mind recalls recalls the last voyage Through a distant way Over the deep deep waters In the new world Where I drown The butterfly again will fly He has to learn alone Above flowers that give the love Intoxicating him I know Another thing drags me down I can’t sail over and over Another thing drags me down I cannot breathe but I’m alive The butterfly again will fly He has to learn alone Above flowers that give the love Intoxicating him I know

Grandmother 03:42
Seventy-six years old This is a story from real life Lived grandmother Everybody she loved, loved, loved She tells me, “Everyone look out” Her advice, you never take advice She knows everything She prayed for me and all of us Our father who art in heaven Blessed be thy name She sings me to sleep My head leans on her lap Grandmother caress me She wants to protect me Our father in heaven Hallowed be thy name She sings to sleep Grandmother pity me, pity us I was your girl to cuddle After years I still love you How I’d love to hold you And see again blue eyes of love true She sings me to sleep My head leans on her lap Grandmother caress me She wants to protect me Our father in heaven Hallowed be thy name She sings to sleep Grandmother pity me, pity us

Angels outside are running Over the green grass and nobody can see Little angels are whispering and no one can hear them They do not speak In the park the children are playing Above them the angels are flying Their wings a-beating they want to join the games From their paradise Someone scares them away My little angel in heaven Please please care for me care forever My little angel pity me I want to talk with you So listen to me Eenie meenie meenie miney moe He must be the one the one to go Eenie meenie meenie miney moe Says he must be the one the one to go The children will soon slumber deep Their mummies rocking them to sleep In the pale pink rock-a-bye cradle They will dream about hearing angels My little angel in heaven Please please care for me care forever My little angel pity me I want to talk with you So listen to me Eenie meenie meenie miney moe He must be the one the one to go Eenie meenie meenie miney moe Says he must be the one the one to go My little angels Please give me your wings My little angel in heaven Please please care for me care forever My little angel pity me I want to talk with you So listen to m My little angels Please give me your wings give me your wings

Lullaby 03:05
Snake charmer He is afraid He whispers a new charm A mother is rocking with her hands The life In your eyes A black horse runs He is going to the end of the sky And there he brings back to life The stars tonight Sleep well my child Tonight you’ll be restored to life Listen to the wind Touching your hair The spirit of the love Sleep well my child Tonight you’ll be restored to life Sleep well my child Tonight you’ll be restored to life Sleep well my child Tonight you’ll be restored to life Tonight you’ll be restored to life Tonight you’ll be restored to life

Overdose 04:25
The sunlight falls away The birds cease their singing The white angel lands to bare A million touches Seeking to caress and care As his old arrow slips in there He strays where the good don’t go His sobbing heard around He longs to return White angel lost in his thoughts Looking for his soul He wants to save His final arrow pulled taut Hoping it will reach Up above into the greyness But how can he succeed When no one believes In miracles of madness He strays where the good don’t go His sobbing heard around He longs to return White angel lost in his thoughts Looking for his soul He wants to save Flies the final arrow Through the grey grey clouds White angel lost in his thoughts Looking for his soul He wants to save Flies the final arrow Through the grey grey clouds Where the good don’t go The birds singing The white angel sleeps

Sweet girl 04:09
My first dress found under The fake Christmas tree Purchased for one night For a sweet girl The white candles are going out Everyone in evening dress with a fine smile Giving presents for a sweet girl Tomorrow I will go and see my old aunt Delighted to see me Wearing my new dress She’ll comb my hair She gave me her old hair slide A prize from the funfair For her long hair when she was young Tomorrow I go go All eyes will be on me Everyone wanting to touch me Sweet girl for one night Everyone looking at me Wanting to touch me Sweet girl for one night At the funfair the roundabout turns I am over there and turn around In my old dress for one night And I’m still crying For my lost hair slide Taken from me when I was young The sweet girl for one night And I still cry For my lost hair slide Taken from me The sweet girl for one night

The horses 02:53
The horses are running Over the meadows And through the forest They’re fearless They’re breathless Nobody’s stopping them Then comes dawn And they are seeking shelter From the light Waiting for dusk’s arrival The horseman is whipping And they’re running And feel nothing They’re fearless They’re breathless Searching for a place to rest And comes the dawn And they are seeking shelter From the light Waiting for dusk’s arrival And comes the dawn And they are seeking shelter From the light Waiting for dusk’s arrival

Magic, magic mirror Who is the most beautiful In your eyes is it me Your imprisoned beauty Glitter, glitter in my palms With my kiss I infatuate Eternity, eternity only for us Am I a silent beauty charm I see, I see, I see myself I ask you, ask you Am I still so fair I see, I see, I see myself And I ask , I ask Who I am Shattered, shattered mirror Stomping splinters on the ground Imprisons you speechless in my eyes Forever, forever you are mine I see, I see, I see myself I ask you, ask you Am I still so fair I see, I see, I see myself And I ask, I ask Who I am Magic mirror Who is the most beautiful In your eyes is it me?

Timeless 02:58
Clock still beats the time Force turns fast Around us Death is behind the door And then we trust in God Turn turn times The crown of the cross Starts to flower Boundary line has been drawn Light house doesn’t answer It’s signal has dimmed Turns turns the hand of the time Moves moves fast Around us Passes passes all the time Never stops for anyone Every man lives for himself All moments are equal Turn turn times The crown of the cross Starts to flower The crown of the cross Starts to flower

about

Pavla's music mirrors her true self, and hence flows freely. The sounds and words in her debut CD, "Mirror", are born from her past and mingled with her future.
The choir and organ which she heard during her early years in church and the sounds of nature come together, mixing dreams and memories. The world of cinema with its scope for dreaming influenced Pavla as she listened to soundtrack after soundtrack, absorbing the music and all it represented. This first music love now transpires through the innovative arrangements of Pavla’s original piano compositions.
Pavla wrote "Magic Mirror" as a reflection of woman and women, and it is the woman’s voice of Nastassja Kinski which enriches the track in this recording.
Roberto Conforti of Pulcher Femina deepens the tone with his voice in "Overdose".
