Lyrics

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the old Santa has gone AWOL
his endless shopping mall tours have taken their toll
and Christmas is getting close
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

and Christmas Eve arrives
you descend from the sky
in your homemade spaceship
amidst the snow confetti
wearing your shiny grey suit
with your loyal crew
of orange elves and furry friends
and Michael, Steven and Kliph

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
shake our little snow globe world
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

it's the most wonderful show
our senses overflow
it feels just like Christmas
to be sprinkled with love
the greatest Christmas present
is to treasure the present
and drop all worries and regrets

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
we feel Christmas all year long
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

make us smile and make us cry
show us why we need to try
even if our hearts might break
they're fixable with duct tape

Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
the gift that you bring is
more precious than all the bling bling in the world
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
you give us a sense of wonder
when we're feeling buried under mundane chores
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus
oh Wayne Coyne, be our Santa Claus

February 2010: Heart Breaks Into A Song

This month in Viola Music Club: were a-rockin'!

That's right! It's full-on 110% full steam ahead MIDI rock n' roll from the Viola camp this time.

This month's top achievement: fitting words like "ventriloquist" and "cardiologist" into a carefree indierock lyric.

HEART BREAKS INTO A SONG

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
they just stare

heart breaks into a song
and everybody stops
where does that sound come from
it's an awkward show
but I'm no ventriloquist
what the hell is going on

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
are they just scared
when my heart breaks into a song

heart breaks into a song
an organ-grinding song
the voice is shrill yet so strong
something unheard of
hey cardiologist
tell me what is wrong

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
well I don't care
when my heart breaks into a song

catch that song before it's gone
take it home and sing it to your darling

heart breaks into a song
please tell me doctor
what am I to do
when it sings like this

heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a song

Lyrics

last year we waited for the snow in vain
but instead it just rained
and last year the strangest sadness filled the air
we never thought we'd feel this way
on our favourite day of the whole long year

but don't worry because
this year it will be different
real and heartfelt
this year it will be different
all will fall into place
this year won't be like

last year
when the lights of love had disappeared
we were lonely and astray
oh last year
like a candle without a flame
we watched the season slip away
while our hearts were trapped in some cold dark place

but this year it will be different
real and heartfelt
this year it will be different
all will fall into place
because this year wont be like

last year
enough about last year

this year it will be different
real and heartfelt
this year it will be different
our hearts will melt
this year it will be different
all will fall into place
and real love will prevail

Lyrics

soon after dawn
we left the town
our car packed with such great plans

you might stay young at heart
if you seek what you can't find

when you think you've found the way
it always escapes
like the night from the sun's first rays
it always escapes
always escapes

we fell asleep
the road carried us
past the strangest cities of glass

can you stay young at heart
if you never break apart

when you think you've found the way
it always escapes
like the night from the suns first rays
it always escapes
like the light at the end of a day
it always escapes
always escapes

when you think you've found the way
it always escapes
like the night from the sun's first rays
it always escapes
like the light at the end of a day
it always escapes
for how long must we stray
it always escapes
