"Vice" as written by Melvin Glover, Leland Roy Robinson, Sylvia Robinson and Douglas Arthur Wimbish....
Wild is the wind that strips away our sins
Yours is the night, but you don't know where to begin
But I heard you say
You've got a feeling that it's just around the bend
I heard you say
Sometimes you fall into the arms of no-one at all
I mean to say that that's alright
I did what I could!

[Chorus]
Oh, sometimes I run
Yeah, sometimes I fall
L O V E, I'll see you later
L O V E, I'll see you later

Yours is the fire that gets in my head
Mine is desire, so let it burn down your bed
Cause I heard about those stories, yeah
I guess everyone has
I heard them say sometimes you fall
Just on your own with no-one at all
I mean to say that that's alright
I did what I could!

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentthis reminds me of an old love interest. it looked like it was going somewhere but in the end it didn't. like it's saying that if it becomes more then she didn't want anything to do with me. tragic...

    Again pure genius. So so simple but so so meaningful to every single person. I have had this feeling all year and I don't know what I would have done with this song and Razorlight.

    General Commenthe doesnt always say its about two girls in love at xfms winterwonderland he said it this song is about humphrey bogart. also reffering to charmlessman borrell was comparing is first album to dylans first album and how poeticlaly and lyrically he can right so much better music and poems that dylan could had his age and im afraid i have to agree with him dylan in his early ages just thought of certain word to rhyme with the previous, Borrell however manages to just let it all flow naturally with each and every word and when u see them live u relise that the whole album is bloody insane and u rate each song as good as the last, best live gig in 2005 so far probbaly will not be beaten

    General Commentthe thing about bob dylan was that lyrically he was brilliant but he didnt have the voice to carry his songs....other people singing dylan songs is better than dylan singing them himself(Joan Baez for example)........so in ways this album is better than a lot of what dylan did(in a musical sense at least)

    at the same time Johnny Borell has an ego bigger than his big hair............. but so did the beatles and they didnt turn out half bad.....i'd say just forget what borell is saying and just listen to his music
