"Dice" as written by and Thomas Dybdahl....
I often wonder how exciting life would be
If only I would seize the opportunity
To break free of all conventions and comfort
But a worried face soon comes over me

But I am only once, not twice
At the mercy of dice
But I am only once, not twice
At the mercy of dice

We went to bed and turned the stereo on low
Heard the timber creek and windows rattled gently
Although we smiled, there were no words left to say
A soothing draft was all I had for company

But I am only once, not twice
At the mercy of dice
But I am only once, not twice
At the mercy of dice

    Song MeaningThis song "Dice" portrays a message between two shy lovers.

    The shy girl is wondering how it would be like to take a chance- neglecting what others may think, what society standards are- "seizing the opportunity" to convey to the guy her true feelings for him. Likewise, the guy is feeling the same way as she does. Yet, whenever the chances come "dice" she and he can't seem to come to words, and the only thing that they could come close to words was simply conveyed through a smile. "Although we smiled, there were no words left to say..." Chances keep coming, "only once not twice." They are hoping that by the "mercy of dice" chances would keep coming until they could eventually be able to express their true feelings for each other.
