Absent at present; with yesterday's dreams

Let me know you, shadows in the window 
Stranger thus you stand and wonder 

Pondering with thoughts, held prison to
To what price owed so heavy on contemplation 

I see you this close to touch with yesterdays dreams
In close distance I feel your presence yet far a' near-far  

The captivation of  an audience,
You do, so effortlessly with your elegance 

Yet empty cold and brash of substance 
After winning the hearts of all that stare 

Would wings set one so free to chase yesterday 
To escape with gaze through the window we stare  

Announce to me my dear, I employ you 
My attention you hold to court, announce to me

What sits so strong, so wrong, to hold hostage  
On thy mind, to be absent at present 

Stranger thus you have become, ghostly 
Invisible to a crowded room, absent at present 

Hello, hello; excuse me, excuse me
Hello, excuse me, hello, hello; absent at present
