happy marriage between a profound musical training and the driving passion of popular music. Rich poetry and songs of love, but also fascinating stories told by Gaia through a gentle voice that penetrates the soul and transports "in the country where everything is possible but nothing is real ...

Changes in mood and rhythm easily occur within the same song: changes that accompanied by undulations of her voice, reflect that love for the movement, for the trip that characterize Gaia, in life as in music.

Lyrics

Pecora Nera

Written By: Gaia Mobilij

Son vestita di sterpi e di rami
e di pensieri vani.
Destinata al continuo emigrare ,
semino danni e poi mi getto nel mare.

Vago sospinta da uno stato febbrile,
ballo succinta in un sentiero di spine.
Se vuoi trovarmi puoi venire a scoprire
dove vivono le pecore nere.

Da madre incerta e da padre poeta,
fin da piccola ero già senza metà.
Ad occhi chiusi mi sapev'orientare,
nel buio ho passato già molte ore.

Ero rondine ora sono gabbiano,
dai tetti scuri ad un mare pagano.
se vuoi trovarmi puoi venire a scoprire,
come vivono le pecore nere.

Ed ora scusa ma ti devo lasciare
il treno parte la nave è pronta a salpare
se vuoi trovarmi poi venire a scoprire
come vivono le pecore nere
dove crescono le pecore nere...
