Finishing the hat
How you have to finish the hat
How you watch the rest of the world
From a window
While you finish the hat

Mapping out a sky

What you feel like planning a sky
What you feel when voices that come
Through the window
Until they distance and die

Until there's nothing but sky
And how you're always turning back too late
From the grass or the stick
Or the dog or the light 

There's a part of you always standing by
Mapping out the sky
Finishing a hat
Starting on a hat
Finishing a hat
Look, I made a hat
Where there never was a hat

- Stephen Sondheim, Sunday in the Park with George
