NEON LIGHTNING

the night sky is in need of neon lightning

hey, something's on it's way
yeah, it's in the air
wow, can you feel it now
cool, just let it loose

neon lightning
shining, striking
we're dancing under
disco thunder

August 2009: Oh How You Dance

Hi friends!

We've already reached the fifth track of this music club endeavour and this time we've done something we rarely do: recorded a cover song!

So here it is, fully Violated and translated to English: TV-Resistori's ever-so-wonderful 'Näen tanssivan sun uudestaan'!

Lyrics

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
You move, you move me so
Let the music flow

Hey baby, just don't stop
I'm your captive on the dance floor
I want to see much more

I can't keep up with you
I get out of step
This is too much
Make-up's running down.

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Oh how you dance
I stare entranced
Is there a chance
that you would catch my glance

Hey baby, please don't stop
A kiss is what I'm longing for
One look and I'm all yours

Hey baby, just don't stop
The night is young
oh no
I'm already getting slow

Do I have to keep going on
Don't you already know
you have to take me
home with you

Oh how you dance
You have to take me

Oh how you dance
This is too much

Oh how you dance
You have to take me
home with you

July 2009: Shimmery Summery (Sha-La-La Love)

SUMMERTIME Y'ALL!!!

Even Finland has gotten a taste of real summer this year for a change, so obviously this calls for celebration and what better way to celebrate than with Viola's first official summer hit!

(Please also vote for S S (S-L-L L) in the Radio Helsinki summer hit 2009 finals!)

Lyrics

baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer

shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery

hey, let's calculate
come up with a catchphrase
for kids to sing throughout the summer
naive, innocent and sweet
some fluffy make-believe
to sell the idea of summer

everybody gets a little bit funny
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery uu-ah uu-ah
everybody wants to find their honey
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery u-aa
baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer

whoa, that could bring us dough
quite catchy even though
it's not as good as Coco Jambo
well, what the hell
if only it will sell
we can forget it after summer

everybody gets a little bit funny
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery uu-ah uu-ah
everybody wants to find their honey
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery u-aa
baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer

mandatory reggae part!
autumnal love grows like a rainstorm
wintry love will keep you warm
springtime love well it's a bit of a norm
but there's something really special
in that shimmery summery sha-la-la love

everybody gets a little bit funny
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery uu-ah uu-ah
everybody wants to find their honey
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery u-aa
baby, let's do it
let's make it through the summer
u-aa u-aa u-aa

shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
shimmery summery sha-la-la love
shimmery summery
uu-ah uu-ah

Lovelights

The first song on our first long play album. Probably for many people the first (and for some, the last) Viola-track they've heard. The string intro pretty much sets the tone of what's to come - home made dramatics all the way.

Lyrics

we chose the easy way
to make things hard
we chose the heart
we hide it from the world
conceal its shine
but love lights our eyes

catch the lights in lonely eyes
before they flow down inside tears
they can't keep solitude away

we're soft like sudden rain
but fall down hard
because we want no part
in things that make us feel unsound
it's in our eyes what all long to find

catch the lights in lonely eyes
before they flow down inside tears
precious things with highest price
the little glow that makes us care
catch the lights in lonely eyes
before they flow down inside tears
they can't keep solitude away

still remaining so pure
how low will you follow
catch the lights in lonely eyes
how low will you follow
catch the lights in lonely eyes
how low will you follow
how low will you follow

Always Never Lasts

Yet another proof of just how essential Esa "Espe" Mikkonen was to the early Viola-sound.

Lyrics

forever is over too fast
and always will never last
so pull me out from your schemes
words sever us so painfully
however hard we choose to do without
all flows back tomorrow
all the tears we've swallowed

true love can fade away
ever so gently
yet real hurt is as far from this
as tears from the rain

you pierced me through and through
I was already yours (how true)
our kingdom was a jewel
in the bottom of an ocean

true love can fade away
ever so gently
yet real hurt is as far from this
as tears from the rain

you said "we were so close"
so terribly close
that there was nothing between us, no

true love can fade away
ever so gently
yet real hurt is as far from this
as tears from the rain

always never lasts
always never lasts
always never lasts
but never might be someday

Always Never Lasts (demo version)

A light disco-pop "hit" with bittersweet lyrics. Classic Placebo/New Order -esque bass line and an eurodance beat. The first Viola song played in national radio! Still a live favourite, an updated version is being planned on our debut album.
