Virtue
Up Up Up Up Up Up 1999

Virtue is relative at best
there's nothing worse than a sunset
when you're driving due west
and I'm afraid that my love
is gonna come up short
that there is no there there
i guess I'm scared
'cuz i want to have good news to report 
every time i come up for air

Now I'm crusing through a chromakey blue sky
but i know that in an hour of three
the sun is gonna be in my eyes 
and i know that sometimes all i can see 
is how i feel 
like the whole world is on the other side 
of a dirty windshield

And I'm trying to see through the glare
yes I'm struggling just to see what is there

The one person who really knows me best 
says I'm like a cat
the kind of cat that you just can't pick up
and throw into your lap
no, the kind that doesn't mind being held
only when it's her idea
yeah, the kind that feels what she decides to feel 
when she's good and ready to feel it

Now i am prowling through the backyard 
and i am hiding under the car
i have gotten out of everything 
I've gotten into so far
i eat when i am hungry
and i travel alone
and just outside the glow of the house
is where i feel most at home

But in the window you sometimes appear
and your music is faint in my ears
