Crosby, Stills & Nash: "Helplessly Hoping"

two in one special today!
and it's a request... oo la la.


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 wondersat the empty place inside

heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams he worries
did he hear a good-bye or even


they are one person
they are too alone
they are three 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 it's loose in a lady who lingers
saying she is lost

and choking on hello

they are one person
they are too alone
they are three together
they are for each other


"this was the first song i ever had
with a boyfriend and i (also a fan of repeat)
would listen to it on repeat, alone in
my dorm room with the lights off and
the volume on max.

this was the way i always felt about us.
you were me and i was you... not in
time or in space, but in our minds.

ultimately we just wanted to
hold it together, but we couldn't.
i was that lady, lingering,
making you trip over my goodbyes,
but lost myself.

i wish it hadn't gone so sour.
i wish i could still hear your mind in mine,
as friends, still here for each other.

from this relationship what i miss most
is the friendship, but i believe it
lives on in its own space."

my paraphrasation of you know
who you are about the he who
may, or may not, know who he is:

freelurving is a learning experience,
not like learning calculus, but more like
learning first hand how to survive
every single accident covered in the
worst case scenario survival handbook guides...
