Virtue

 

I'm not some chosen one
But I know where I come from 


I know where I'm going to
And I'm so glad that I'm going with you
    Some people just feel old
  

    But I feel you and it feeds my soul 
  

    When I reach down inside my heart and feel Virtue there

Such a twisted-up old world


It turns on every boy and girl 


Sun rises in a clear blue sky 


Sun sets — every girl and boy die 
  

    All this good life’s just a crutch
  

    When the whole damn world is so out of touch 
  

    I reach down inside my heart and touch the Virtue there

         Should ever you stumble and fall
         When this everyday battle just pushes your back up against the wall 
     

         Call me — I'm easily found
     

         You won't have to fight anymore when I reach down

Say what you will of the ways 


We fill up and waste our days 


Call it the devil or call it fate 


I say that it's never too late 
  

     I won't go six feet under ground
  

     I'll turn this graveyard upside down 
  

     When I reach down inside my heart and wake up the Virtue there

     I'll reach down inside my heart and I'll feel the mercy there

     I'll reach down inside my heart and I'll share the Virtue there

original version:


I'm not some chosen one
But I know where I'm coming from 

I know where I'm going to

And I'm so glad that I'm going with you
   Some people just feel old
  
   But I feel you, and I feel my soul 
  

   When I reach down inside my heart and find Virtue there

It's such a twisted-up world 


That turns on every boy and girl


Sun rises in a clear blue sky 


Sun sets and it's time to die 
  

   When my grief’s all too much
  

   When the whole damn world’s so out of touch

   I reach down inside my heart and touch the Virtue there


  



      Should ever you stumble and fall
      When this "new day – same battle" 
     

      Just pushes your back up against the wall 
     

      Call me, I'm easily found
     

      You won't have to fight anymore when I reach down

Say what you will of the ways 

We fill up and waste our days 

Call it the devil or call it fate 

I say that it's never too late 
  

   I won't go six feet under ground
  

   I'll turn this graveyard upside down 
  

   When I reach down inside my heart and feel the Virtue there
