"Virtue And Wine" as written by and Sondre Lerche Vaular....
Summer killed the ones you loved
I hesitate and tell you
When people leave without goodbye
I lose another brick
The buildings are tall
The world explains all
And here I stand and face myself:
I lead the way for us

I've frozen down my memory
It's morning when she gets up
She puts on Lionel Ritchie
I've already had enough
The queues are long
Guess I am wrong
This chemical environment is getting out of hand

Virtue and wine cannot help you swim
Pain and sorrow must come
If you go

It´s the chemistry and the things we should´nt do
I am nothing without you

Ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-ba

    General Commentthese lyrics seem to be missing some parts:

    Summer killed the ones you loved
    I hesitate and tell you
    When people leave without goodbye
    I lose another brick
    The buildings are tall
    the world explains all
    and here I stand and face myself:
    I lead the way for us

    It's just the attitude or in fact the lack of it
    You are nothing without it
    Yeah

    I've frozen down my memory
    It's morning when she gets up
    She puts on Lionel Ritchie
    I've already had enough
    The queues are long
    Guess I am wrong
    This chemical environment is getting out of hand

    It's just the attitude or in fact the lack of it
    You are nothing without it
    And it's the chemistry and the things we shouldn't do
    I am nothing without you
    Ahh yeaaaah

    Virtue and wine cannot help you swim
    Pain and sorrow must come
    if you go

    It's just the attitude or in fact the lack of it
    You are nothing without it
    And it's the chemistry and the things we shouldn't do
    I am nothing without you
    Ahh yeaaaah

    It´s the chemistry and the things we should´nt do
    I am nothing without you

    Ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-ba

    there, much better

    General CommentSondre's songs are hard to figure out. I think he writes them in Norweigan and then translates to English and something is lost in the translation.

    In this song he talks about a chemical environment, which could be drug use or living a lifestyle at odds with his own. Virtue and Wine, alcohol use is not considered a virtue by some, so it could be a metaphor for conflicting lifestyles.

    General Commentjust a thought, "chemical" could refer to having chemistry with someone, which goes along with the title, virtue, if you don't, but maybe wine when you do....("the things we shouldn't do") ;) His songs tend to be more about the trickiness of relationships and not about drug/alcohol problems. Maybe an attraction to someone whose not good for you or doesn't return the feelings.
