Helplessly Hoping - by CSNY

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 wonders
At the empty place inside
Heartlessly helping himself
He worries
Did he hear a good-bye?
They are one person

We are one person
They are three together
They are for each other

Stand by the stairway
You'll see something
Certain to tell you
Love isn't lying
It's loose in a lady who lingers
Saying she is lost
And choking on her love

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