  • Lyrics: I remember how I’d measured me In what more that a man could be And keep you guessing all the time The ability to cry with ease And subtle sensitivities Kept me hiding from the boys like it’s a crime So female fascination Came with late night conversations Whispered through the cracks between the walls And though you loved the company You knew that they would come for me Exceptions to the rules are bound to fall And you were right Maybe you were right And now I’m uptown tryin’ to make a dime or two Who can find the time for virtue? Who can find the time for virtue? Gone uptown tryin’ to make a dime or two Who can find the time for virtue Gotta find a way to live up to me now So I make a list of lovers past And moments when I saw them last And think what they would do if I appeared And I wonder if their memories Still conjure up the best of me And why it matters most this time of year Because the winter’s Frosted all my mirrors And now I cant see The stature of the man behind these fears And now I’m uptown tryin’ to make a dime or two Who can find the time for virtue? Who can find the time for virtue? Gone uptown tryin’ to make a dime or two Who can find the time for virtue Gotta find a way to live up to me now
