The trouble with Hum
is that they never release official
copies of their lyrics
. This results in different
versions of said lyrics by different people
. Little Dipper
's first line is a good example of this. While Stride
here has heard and believed that the line ends with 'absent eyes
', myself and most others I know believe the line should be, "If we both stand with paths on high
." Just an interesting thought
. If you have those words in mind while listening to the song, I believe they fit better than 'absent eyes.'
They do not, however, make much more sense.
But this is Hum, people. Easy to understand lyrics was never their forte.
Also, http://hum.n3.net/, the best and most accurate site I've found yet for Hum information, displays the same line.
