Helplessly Hoping

Written by Stephen Stills

	  		Intro: Am7 C G D  
Am7                   C                    G  
Helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers nearby  
Awaiting a word  
Am7                    C  
Gasping at glimpses of gentle true spirit  
   G                      D  
He runs, wishing he could fly  
        Am          C            G D  
Only to trip at the sound of goodbye  

Am7                     C  
Wordlessly watching, he waits by the window  
    G                           D  
And wonders at the empty place inside  
Am7                    C  
Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams  
   G                          D  
He worries, did he hear a goodbye  
   Am C     G D  
Or even hello  
         G   C 
They are one person  
         G   C 
They are two alone  
         G       C 
They are three together  
         G    Dm/F  C    G  
They are four for   each other  
Am7                           C  
Stand by the stairway, you'll see something  
             G                         D  
Certain to tell you confusion has its cost  
Am7                     C  
Love isn't lying, it's loose in a lady  
     G                      D  
Who lingers, saying she is lost  
     Am   C   G    D  
And choking on hello
