    “I’m a huge fan of ‘The Twilight Zone,’ especially the episodes where Rod Serling addresses some nuanced existential dilemma hidden inside a gimmicky science fiction idea,” says Mike Viola of the video for his single “We May Never Be This Young Again.”

    “For this video, the director, Silvia Grav, envisioned me running, just vaguely running through Los Angeles at night. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be running from, but she had this vision while listening to the song over and over. There are a handful of ‘Twilight Zone’ episodes about Air Force pilots who are distressed and disoriented by something or other. I bought a blue jumpsuit online and put together a little crew and we drove around filming me running in downtown Los Angeles late at night, which during COVID, was empty. We knew we wanted to have vignettes of a couple not getting along great, Like, normal stuff we all go through in our relationships, nothing too dramatic. Just that kind of subtly that can slowly tear apart a marriage. Something always saves us in these moments of subtle destruction. You guessed it, love.”


    Lyrics:

    All the chemicals in our hair
    All the needles in our face
    What exactly are we trying to erase
    I’ve got no map of who I am
    As I walk through the ruins
    Of a life I was supposed to lead

    The father in me
    Is dying to come home
    While the child
    Is still trying to break free
    I’m so sorry for all those times
    I kind of lost my mind
    In a bottle on the open sea

    Don’t turn around, don’t turn around
    You’re so beautiful in the light
    Don’t hide the sun, don’t hide the sun
    We may never be this young again.

    There are rules we live by
    Just to break them sometimes
    Just to test ourselves to make sure we’re alive
    What if I stopped the world
    And all the birds started singing
    For the dreamer who didn’t make it through the night

    Don’t turn away, don’t turn away
    When I roll through the flowers of my mind
    Don’t hide the sun, don’t hide the sun
    We may never have this chance again
    We may never be this free
    We may never be this young again

    Lyrics:

    That Seems Impossible Now

    What can I say?
    Time slipped away from us
    We became a cliché
    I guess that was good enough
    Working for the weekends
    Season after season
    Till a lifetime goes by
    Without saying goodbye
    That seems impossible now

    Memory is useless
    It gives and it takes from us
    It corrects our mistakes
    And creates the martyrs
    The angels and saints
    The mothers and fathers
    Who tried their best
    I’d love to put them all to rest
    But that seems impossible now

    What am I gonna do without you pushing me around?

    A shattered compass
    With a frozen magnet
    A tattered atlas
    With whole towns that vanished
    The backyards and swing sets
    The highways and driveways
    Of childhood homes
    How did we let it all go?
    That seems impossible now

    Lyrics:

    Ordinary girl
    There’s a life planned out for you
    By your parents by your school
    But they don’t know anything
    You know why you’re here
    You could easily disappear
    Don’t waste another year
    Busy with normal things

    Ordinary girl, the terror in your heart
    Is a message from the stars
    That you can’t ignore
    Ordinary girl, have you come to save the world?
    We all need you now more than ever
    More than ever

    Ordinary girl
    In a paint by number scene
    Living someone else’s dream
    Straight out of Hollywood
    No one knows you’re here
    You could easily disappear
    Just fly away, don’t get trapped in this neighborhood

  • 10 Mike Viola - The One

    6:53

    Song #10 of our Mike Viola House Concert.

    This song is special. Its an original song I wrote for my wife, Kimberly, when we were dating. The bridge of the song (the part Mike is having a little trouble with) was actually a poem Kim wrote me - prior to me writing the song.
    I included her poem in the song I wrote for her.

    Anyways, this was a complete surprise to her - to have Mike Viola sing her song.

    Amazing, not-a-dry-eye, moment we will never forget.

    Mike Viola - Hair of the dog

    Call me back tomorrow
    Today is not so good
    I'm in a bad place in my head
    And I can't get out of bed

    If I pull myself together
    It wouldn't mean a thing
    I've always been the one who finds
    A way to turn it around
    When I'm going down that road

    Today and tomorrow
    Still so unpredictable
    I'm either setting my sail
    Or pulling out nails

    If I pull myself together
    Like a pair of open scissors
    In a room of paper dolls
    My eyes stay glued to the wall
    I'm going down that road

    Lost among the mirrors
    Facing the mirror
    Trying to imitate myself
    Obliterate myself

    If I tried something different
    Tried leaning on a friend
    Stuffed in a box beneath my bed
    In an orgy of retouched flesh
    I'm going down that road

    I'm going down that road
