We're going back in time this month. Way back into the vaults of Viola where we find this gem that has survived for 10+ years without getting captured on tape save for some live renditions.

Some long time Viola friends might remember this one: Saddened Yet Hopeful.

This is the second recorded proverbial fruit of the labour with the six most amazing viola players in Finland that helped us realize Heartstring Theory in June and gave us the most amazing night on Viola's Day 2011.

Lyrics

SADDENED YET HOPEFUL

gone, my love
if it ever was
worthy of calling such
I'm still holding onto a memory
for I fear it's all that I got

I'll wait in my bed
she'll soon be here
she'll come like she said
I'm so saddened
yet hopeful

come, my love
as I know you must
come and take me away
you might get this far if the sky is clear
straying from your star to here

I'll wait in my bed
she'll soon be here
she'll come like she said she would
I'm so saddened
yet hopeful

soon, soon
if it will ever happen
if it will ever happen
it will be today
soon, soon
if it will ever happen
if it will ever happen
it will be today
soon
