"Modern Nature" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
The moment has come, to face the truth
I'm wide awake and so are you
Do you have the clue what this is? (I don't know)
Are you everything that I missed? (Don't hope so)
We'll just have to wait and see (Wait and see)
If things go right we're meant to be

The surface is gone to scratch it off
We'll make some plans and let them go
Do you have the slightest idea? (No I don't)
Why the world is right when we leave (Is that so?)
Stay a while and wait and see (Wait and see)
If things go right we're meant to be

Oh, what a world this life would be
Forget all your technicolour dreams
Forget modern nature
This is how it's meant to be

The time is here for being straight
It's not too early and never too late
People say I should watch my pace (What do they know?)
Think how you spend all your days (They all say so)
They'll just have to wait and see (Wait and see)
If things go right they'll have to agree

Oh, what a world this life would be
Forget all your technicolour dreams
Forget modern nature
This is how it's meant to be

Do-dam-dam-duru-dam..

Do you have the slightest idea? (No I don't)
Why the world is right when we leave (Is that so?)
Stay a while and wait and see (Wait and see)
If things go right we're meant to be

Oh, what a world this life would be
Forget all your technicolour dreams
Forget modern nature
This is how it's meant to be

Forget modern nature
This is how it's meant to be

    General Commentthe girl's name is lillian samdal

    this is one of the catchiest songs i've ever heard. they're using it for AMC commercials now, and the chorus fits perfectly. I love Sondre

    General Commentbut now, what does it *mean?* (now that we've gotten over his name...)

    I always got the impression that it was about straight vs. gay relationships. The song blatently says, "the time here is for being straight." Is this what it literally means? Well, it would make sense with the "forget modern nature" (modern nature = gay/lesbian relations).

    A lot of Sondre's lyrics are vague: it always seems hard to pull one concrete meaning out of his songs. "If things go right they'll have to agree" Who are they? Agree with what?

    General CommentThere are lyrics they sing at the beginning of this song, which are definitely not posted in the booklet sold with the cd, but they definitely sing it on there:

    The moment has come to face the truth
    I'm wide awake and so are you
    Do you have a clue what this is? (I don't know)
    Are you everything that I missed? (I don't hope so)
    We'll just have to wait and see (Wait and see)
    If things go right we're meant to be

    The surface is gone, you scratched it off
    We'll make some plans, I let them go
    Do you have the slightest idea (No I don't)
    Why the world is bright when you're near? (Is that so?)
    Stay awhile and wait and see (Wait and see)
    If things to right we're meant to be.
