TITLE: Helplessly Hoping
Lyrics and Chords

Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearby
Awaiting a word
Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit
He runs, wishing he could fly
Only to trip at the sound of goodbye

/ Am7 C / G D / Am7 C / G D / AmC G D /

Wordlessly watching, he waits by the window
And wonders at the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams
He worries, did he hear a goodbye
Or even hello

They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other

/ G C / / / G Dm/F C - G /

Stand by the stairway, you'll see something
Certain to tell you confusion has its cost
Love isn't lying, it's loose in a lady
Who lingers, saying she is lost
And choking on hello
