Or even hello? Helplessly Hoping
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 to her bad dreams
He worries
Did he hear a good-bye? They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are four for each other
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
They are one person
They are two alone
They are three together
They are four for each other

Change, comin down like the rain
Still I feel the same
Rain, my days are gettin strange
From all my yesterdays down the drain
I feel weakened, stuck in the deep end
No home, nowhere to go
I feel broken, I have been hopin
Holdin, onto the rope
Sold, I have been told
Love will leave me cold
And all that I know, lost all control
And I can’t feel my soul, I used to know
I feel weakened, stuck in the deep end
No home, nowhere to go
I feel broken, I have been hopin
Holdin, onto the rope
