Helplessly Hoping Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
[Intro. (Acoustic Guitar)]
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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 good-bye?
Or even hello?
Verse 4
They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are for each other
Verse 7
[Ending (Acoustic Guitar)]
