Helplessly Hoping


by Crosby, Stills and Nash (Stephen Stills)
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

Am - - - / - - - < / C - - - /   / G - - - /   / D - - - /   /  (2x)
[1]
Am - - > / C - - - / 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
[2]
Am - - > / C - - - / G - - - / C - - - //

 C:	They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are four each other

G - - - / (C) - - - /  x2  /  x2  / 
G - - - / Dm - - - / C - - - /    / G - C - / G - - - //

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

 C:	They are one person
        They are two alone
        They are three together
        They are four each other
