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,, the best and most accurate site I've found yet for Hum information, displays the same line.
