    "Finishing The Hat" Lyrics

    Mandy Patinkin

    You end me, pal
    Second bottle
    Ah, she looks for me

    Bonnet flapping

    Yes, she looks for me good

    Let her look for me
    To tell me why she left me
    As I always knew she would

    I had thought she understood
    They have never understood
    And no reason that they should

    But if anybody could, 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

    How the kind of woman willing to wait's
    Not the kind that you want to find waiting
    To return you to the night
    Dizzy from the height

    Coming from the hat, studying the hat
    Entering the world of the hat
    Reaching through the world of the hat
    Like a window
    Back to this one from that

    Studying a face
    Stepping back to look at a face
    Leaves a little space in the way like a window
    But to see, it's the only way to see

    And when the woman that you wanted goes
    You can say to yourself, "Well, I give what I give"
    But the women who won't wait for you knows
    That, however you live

    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
