Lyrics

jackie`s gone to airport (aeroport?)
no sight of heart in her heart
jackie`s gone wind carries her away
jackie`s gone leaves fall today

i like sad satellites

your touch is all too much
said a raven to a cloud
all you borrow all you steal
all the sky you pour over me..

i like sad satellites

October 2010: La Formule Du Bonheur

Greetings to you all!

As our 19th Viola Music Club -track we present to you all a track where we do our best to emulate the classic 90s "sensual beat" sound of Enigma et al. I guess they'd call it "balearic" nowadays.

Also, you'll be happy to hear Riku's shot at mumbling mysteriously in French. On the Kusela-Gainsbourg -scale he scores just about halfway.

soyez amoureuses
soyez mystérieuses

soyez mystérieuses
soyez amoureuses
et mystérieuses
et vous serez heureuses

it all falls into place
when nothing's making sense
words fail once again
this is happiness

soyez amoureuses

soyez amoureuses
et mystérieuses
et vous serez heureuses
soyez amoureuses
(be in love)
soyez mystérieuses
(be mysterious)
soyez amoureuses

(and you will be happy)

it all falls into place
when nothing's making sense
words fail once again
this is happiness

soyez amoureuses

it all falls into place
when nothing's making sense
words fail once again
this is happiness
it all falls into place
this is happiness
it all falls into place

September 2010: Puppies In The Rain

There goes yet another warm summer and it's time to cuddle up under a warm blanket to make sure you stay warm through the cold dark winter.

But make sure you don't forget our little furry friends, puppies!

PUPPIES IN THE RAIN

puppies in the rain
they'll steal your heart away
under autumn's veil
loppy ears and soggy tails
they don't even know their names
or if they have yet any
if the coldest heart can break
it will break for them

for puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

puppies in the rain
lost on a strange terrain
they just want to play
but they'll need a safer place
a warm lap and loving arms
that'll never let them down
the cold world makes us all bark
but we only want some love

like puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain

take them home and dry their hair
tuck them in a warm blanket
and they'll snuggle up to somebody who deserves it

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

we're puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

August 2010: Traitor On The Inside

Hey everybody!

August seems to be Finnish Indie Appreciation month here at Viola Music Club. Last year we did a cover of Tv-resistori and this year we're having a go at the brilliant Traitor On The Inside by Red Carpet.

Lyrics

TRAITOR ON THE INSIDE

come and see my beautiful country
where the lights go out at six in the evening
the winter can leave you depressed and freezing
and the summer won't melt the northern heart
traitor on the inside

I got friends in high places
they owe me one to make me faceless
I can speak and remain nameless
I'll disappear into the air
traitor on the inside
won't you let me out

there's a heart that's always aching
left alone and thrown out for breaking
a heart so strong that it will go on
long after our world is gone
traitor on the inside
won't you let it out
let it out

Lyrics

stay forever unexplained
leave people far behind
real stars never die

kiss me from the screen
sweep me from within
teach me how to feel

claim a part in your own life
learn the script by heart
you look too good to lose

step into the dream
steal all the best scenes
you're brighter than the stars
when you explode

our eyes can only see stars
our life is just a waste of time
our time is forever now
our time is already gone

stay forever unexplained
leave people far behind
real stars never die

Last Chance

Melancholic three-minute epic that aims high yet falls a little short. Our tribute to Autour De Lucie? Nowadays sometimes played in our acoustic set.

Lyrics

"I will find you my light
it will happen eventually
I want to touch your frail heart
and then we'll escape

if you're the last one I'll choose
I'll do anything
fulfill your secret dream
you're the last chance I lose

endlessly beautiful
nothing else just can't compete
I'll take half of your loneliness
and give you mine

if you're the last one I'll choose
I'll do anything
fulfill your secret dream
if you're the last one I'll choose
I'll do anything
to catch you from falling
you're the last chance I lose

oh my ghosts of chances past
set yourself free

if you're the last one I'll choose
I'll do anything
fulfill your secret dream
if you're the last one I'll choose
I'll do anything
to catch you from falling
you're the last chance I lose"

Late Autumn, Early Winter

Closing weepie with very vague lyrics. Apparently haunted by the astral spirit of Robert Smith. It grows and grows... and grows some more. The guy who mastered said it sounded like Pink Floyd!

Lyrics

"it's the season you love
it won't keep you warm
if you have to go
the night is so chilling and black
the wind could get mean
maybe it will snow

when they found her this time
frost in her hair
where had she been?
when they found her in tears
from deep in the woods
they understood

no, you don't get along with anyone
you walk the long road on your own
and if the season you love is over too fast
then you have to go, alone

when they found her this time
frost in her hair
where had she been?
when they found her in tears
from deep in the woods
they understood"

Sensitive Youth (demo version)

A hymn to all underdogs and sensitive people who stay young no matter what age they are. It found a new home on our acoustic set where it suited better - recorded version became maybe too pompous. A solid tearjerker when all things click.

Lyrics

give me a perfect design
to beautify this sad pale life
sleepy hours, let them pass
I'm not like other boys in the class

we finally slip away
this dream comes to an end
we just wanted to stay
where hearts will never break
to look for love you'll never find
such a waste of time
but if you wait your youth will fade away

we keep our tornadoes inside
always giving up in style
we have a vision, we have the sound
one day we'll set our songs unbound

we finally slip away
this dream comes to an end
we just wanted to stay
where hearts will never break
to look for love you'll never find
such a waste of time
but if you wait your youth will fade away
