Hide and Seek

Come and find me if you can

Hidden away in foreign lands

If you're lucky to win this game of mine

Stretching across wind and time

Far across the open sea

Where my real self may truly be

Come and find me if you can

Seek me in the foreign lands

Tear this makeup from my face

Try to return me to my proper place

Change me if you think you can

Come and catch me if you can

Come and find me where I lie

Better hurry I could die

Lying here under the ground

Nothing escapes, there is no sound

But I won't die that is my curse

And I can't seem to figure out if that's the worst

Come and find me where I land

Underneath Egypt's golden sand

Pyramids of gems and gold

Stories left centuries untold

If I'm here than find me crying

If unless I may be dying

Come and find me I am lost

Seek me at your own true cost

Am I worth the price you pay

To seek me out in this sick game

Within a temple I may lie

Waiting to be awoken I look like I died

Come and find me where you can

Seek me in some foreign land

Across the sea unto Japan

Or maybe some holy promised land

Where flowers bloom and winter's short

"Come and find me" I continue to retort

Come and find me seek your glory

Write a page in my old story

Told across the years I wait

And still do I ever hesitate

Hiding who I am and where I lie

I have years left before I die

Come and find me if you may

Where the night never meets the day

Or where the day never meets the night

Or where wrongs are never made right

Where the rain will never end

Just around the mountain bend

Come and find me if you can

Seek me out in a foreign land

Listen as I sing a song

One I had forgot for so long

Listen as I whisper too

Across the wind from me to you

"Seek me out if you can

This game of mine across the lands

Am I worth the price you pay

To discover me some other day

I hide, I tremble, and I wait for the one

To discover me under this dire sun

Come and catch me if you can

Let's play hide and seek across the land

Perhaps I'm in Egypt, Greece or Rome

Many places I call home

Perhaps Japan or somewhere new

A lake surrounded by forest, secluded anew

Hide and seek with me if you please

I don't mean to just only tease

But to find out if ye be true

You must find me that you must do

To see me for whom I really am

Lying asleep in some foreign land

Come and catch me if you can

Where I lie in a foreign land

Hide and seek with me if you will

I pray you never end up ill

Come and catch me if you can

Hidden away in foreign lands"
