Judging by her first single, Waking Up, singer/songwriter Pearla has a bright future ahead of her. Pop music could sure use more intelligent melodies and lyrics like this one:

Lyrics

And in my weakness there was a glory
As I cried to my mama and told her the story
I said, I don’t wanna fight. I don’t wanna fight anymore

And all the spirits that chase me around
Oh they have never given up, never left this town
I could feel it
And maybe it’s time to get out

So here it goes with both eyes closed
I left my cards on the table for you
And take my body
And let this be the very last turn of the screw
And I saw our only sky
Laced with ribbon and gems
Oh I swear it all came to me then
But all we felt was the rain

And so it is
Just one more breakdown then I’m onto this
Why I battle myself for every bliss
And why am I afraid of missing you

And if tomorrow’s gonna keep coming
I can’t just lay here, I better start running
To catch up with the things that got away from me years ago

So here it goes with both eyes closed
I left my cards on the table for you
And take my body
And let this be the very last turn of the screw
And I saw our only sky
Laced with ribbon and gems
Oh I swear it all came to me then
But all we felt was the rain

I do believe in waking up
I do, I do believe in waking up
I watched life turn into the monster
From my nightmares but I do
I do believe in waking up
It looked me straight into the eyes
And it said are you ready tonight
I wasn’t sure, now I’m in love.
