"Viola" as written by Ryland Blackinton and Alexandro Fransisco Suarez....
Standing on the stage, she looked at me
Or maybe it could never be
She wouldn't look at me unless she knew the way that I need her
I really need her

Viola, Viola, Viola,
oh oh oh
I really need you

Viola, Viola, Viola,
oh oh oh
I really love you

See the way her stockings match her eyes
Hear the way she sings and cries
A lovely ballad or perhaps an upbeat folk tune, or an original
I am so pitiful

Viola, Viola, Viola,
oh oh oh
I really need you

Viola, Viola, Viola,
oh oh oh
I really love you

Do you have a lover?
Do you love him tenderly?
Maybe he's backstage, sipping whiskey patiently
When you are away, do you miss him horribly?
And if not...could it be me?

    General Commentamazing song. they were brilliant at the knitting factory in NYC. they played all of their album.

    also, in the first chorus, it's "I really love you" then "I really need you". it's backwards up top.
