Singer-songwriter and producer PÆNDA's will represent Austria at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with her ballad 'Limits'. The song also features on her new album 'Evolution II', released on 26 April 2019. The song tells the story of how she pushed herself beyond all limits in her zeal and passion for music to the point of full exhaustion.

"Being aware of the moments where I needed a break was a process for me," she says. "It was a long and at times difficult road to learning my own limits." The song expresses her vulnerability. At the same time, it conveys the message that it is important to believe in yourself in order to find your own way. The highest premise: no limits."

Limits

English

Minds got to move but I’m so trapped within me
Expanded all my limits too carelessly
And I’m counting on the time to get me back in line
Cause nothing really makes sense no more
I’m set on hold so I needn’t be bold anymore 

Cause the face in the mirror
Just couldn’t look clearer right back through me
And how I’d like to say
It will get better tomorrow or any day 

Yeah I’m talking bout you, you
You and the luck you try to find
You, you
You and how hard you try to hide it 

I sense the pain, but it doesn’t hurt anymore
It’s even number than the ache I felt before
So I smile for a while, let the torture begin
The pressure on my chest becomes almost routine
It’s not like I don’t care, but there’s nothing left to bare 

Yeah I’m talking bout you, you
You and the love you try to find
You, you
You and how hard you try to hide it

And I’m letting it all come crushing down
Come breaking in
It’s like rain just left back blurred outlines
