inspired by a little girl called Violeta and the big ashcloud that came over from Iceland and disrupted the international air traffic for days.


Violeta smiles
written and performed by mats regen

so many ladies
are sitting on their bags to change their babies
and the other passengers they seem to be on edge
they never had the time to wait around
and now they're bound to the ground
that's out-of-date
but it's the case
the planes don't fly today

but Violeta smiles
And everyone around her falls in love with life
the businessmen forget about their flyer miles
and suddenly enjoy to waste their time
like an ashcloud in the sky

now it's monday
and still the flight controllers take a nap on the runway
they never had the time for that but now they
enjoy the privilege of the fools and think in some way
they should do this more often on their own

Violeta smiles
And everyone around her falls in love with life
The dogs are dancing tango with the postman's wife
and suddenly enjoy to feel alive
like an ashcloud in the sky

when it gets dark the children go to sleep
but not this girl
She keeps on twirling through the airport
chasing sunsets looking brighter than before
