Richie Havens - Helplessly Hoping lyrics

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 good-bye

Wordlessly watching he waits by the window and worries
The emptiness inside

Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams he wonders
Did he hear a good-bye or even

Hello

They are 1 person
They are too alone
They are 3 together
They are for each other

Stand by the stairway you'll see something certain to tell you
Confusion has its cost

Love isn't lying its loose in a lady who lingers
Saying she is lost

And choking on hello

They are 1 person
They are too alone
They are 3 together
They are for each other
