2017 broadway cast of sunday in the park with george – finishing the hat lyrics


you and 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 gr-ss 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 sp-ce 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 woman 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 the hat
starting on a hat
finishing the hat
look, i made a hat
where there never was a hat
