You there hiding in plain sight
By the window in the night
The time is coming when you'll stand
Shaking someone's outstretched hand

You've become a distant star
Your laughter beamed from very far
The stone man laughs, the mad man smiles
And we trade places for a while

But me being me as I can see
If this is the new reality
I'll climb the beam to find the star
Where laughter fades and there you are

Alone embodied as you stand
I will take your outstretched hand
No longer hiding in plain sight
And everything will be all right

You there hiding in plain sight
By the window in the night
The time is coming when you'll stand
Shaking someone's outstretched hand

I'll climb the beam to find the star
Where laughter fades and there you are
No longer hiding in plain sight
And everything will be all right
