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".

Track Name: Anonymous day
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
Track Name: Black out
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
Track Name: Desaparecidos
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
Track Name: Grandmother
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
Track Name: The little angels
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
Track Name: Lullaby
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
Track Name: Overdose
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
Track Name: Sweet dreams
Once upon a time there was a queen
And her great grand king
They had a beautiful daughter
Who was adored by everyone

Sleep my baby sleep
Sweet dreams, dream your sweet dreams
Of love life and your fortune
Evil always loses against good

You’re sound asleep my little babe
I will tell you a fairytale
Of a princess and her prince
In an enchanted fairyland

One two three four five six seven
Sheep jumping, sheep up in heaven
One two three four five six
There’s one missing

One two three four five six seven
Sheep jumping, sheep up in heaven
One two three four five six
There’s one missing

You’re sound asleep my little babe
I will tell you a fairytale
Of a princess and her prince
In an enchanted fairyland

Sleep my little baby sleep
Dream of the fairytale you dream
Before morning time is here
Sleep deep, I tell you: deep asleep

One two three four five six seven
Sheep jumping, sheep up in heaven
One two three four five six
There’s one missing

One two three four five six seven
Sheep jumping, sheep up in heaven
One two three four five six
There’s one missing
Track Name: Sweet girl
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
Track Name: The horses
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
Track Name: The magic mirror
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?
Track Name: Timeless
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
