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.

Lyrics

soyez amoureuses
soyez mystérieuses
soyez amoureuses
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 mystérieuses
soyez amoureuses
et mystérieuses
et vous serez heureuses
soyez amoureuses
(be in love)
soyez mystérieuses
(be mysterious)
soyez amoureuses
et mystérieuses
et vous serez heureuses
(and you will be happy)

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

soyez amoureuses
soyez mystérieuses
et vous serez heureuses

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
this is happiness

Lyrics

LEAVE IT ALL AGAIN

I'm waiting for you outside the window
of an old grey house at the edge of the world
where the sea will rage if you step out the door
so you keep it shut tight and just climb the walls

leave it all again
leave it all again
step right out into thin air
and leave it all again

leave it all again
leave it all again
something new waits for you there
leave it all again

if you close your eyes you'll feel the wind at your heels
slowly rising fresh cool breeze
that drifts into your house with whispers so sweet
"leave it all again, leave it all again please"
your daily bores and your nighttime scares
fixed points of view, routines that won't spare
the youth of your mind that's your own captive there
so leave it all again, leave it all again

what's outside the window
it's so hard to let go
of the world we built and leave it all again
what's outside the window
it's so hard to let go
of the world we built and leave it all again

leave it all again
leave it all again
step right out into thin air

leave it all again
leave it all again
something new waits for you there

leave it all again
leave it all again
step right out into thin air

leave it all again
leave it all again
leave behind only trails to nowhere

what's outside the window
it's so hard to let go
of the world we built and leave it all again
what's outside the window
it's so hard to let go
of the world we built and leave it all again

even when you're on the road or somewhere abroad
you still peek through the same window
leave it all again

what's outside the window
it's so hard to let go
of the world we built and leave it all again
what's outside the window
it's so hard to let go
of the world we built and leave it all again

leave it all again
believe it all again
learn to play in a new way

leave it all again
believe it all again
our little world is made of clay

Life's Too Long

One of our most misunderstood titles! No gloominess here, just starry-eyed optimism. It's weird how much context can change words: "Life's too long" is very different from "Life's too long, to bear alone"

Lyrics

you hide behind the ordinary
waste life for the temporary
too tired to even dream of going
nowhere with nothing to lose

life's too long if it's not your own
sometimes it can feel all wrong
life's too long to bear alone
longer if you hibernate

hard times prepare you for the worse
but real life can't be rehearsed
decide that you can still be happy
don't wait for the end of the show

life's too long if it's not your own
sometimes it can feel all wrong
life's too long to bear alone
longer if you hibernate

Shamateur

A weird song about a tamarin monkey. Has something to do with tambourines and such. Beach vibes. Don't ask.

Lyrics

I woke up by the sea
under a tangerine tree
the night was so serene
in the a tree a tamarin
sang to me :

"shamateur
you got what you deserved"

the sand covered me
from my neck to my feet
"if you help me, tamarin
I'll buy you a trampoline,
help me"

"shamateur
you got what you deserved"

I couldn't move my body
my head felt like a tambourine
oh little tamarin
don't shake that tambourine
so wildly

"shamateur
you got what you deserved"
