"Helplessly Hoping" is the 8th track off of their debut self titled album, "Crosby, Stills & Nash" from 1969. This song is one of my favorites by CSN and the harmonies are particularly good. Just sit back, listen and enjoy a truly beautiful song with great lyrics. Lyrics: 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? Or even hello? They are one person They are two 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 two alone They are three together They are for each other

Perfect example of alliteration, for those of you English Lit geeks out there. Like me. Besides that, a beautiful, haunting, poetic song. I had no idea this was on CSN's debut album. Such a gift, that kind of talent.

haunting lyrics. helplessly hoping her harlequin hovers,,,,,,,the harlequin escorts a persons soul to hell. heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams,,,,,,he is feeding off of her pain. wordlessly watching he waits by the window and wonders at the empty place inside,,,,he is nothing without her and he wonders when she will come back, if ever. i love this song.
Stephen Grass
Stephen Stills is one hell of a songwriter. Thanks for all the music, Stephen. "Three together, they are four for each other." CSN, indeed.

I'm 30 yrs Young and in my high school years they're music touched my heart and soul. 4 and twenty yrs ago, I longed to be more, and I'm Still not into selling door to door. Military madness IS killing my country! Deja vu, find the cost of freedom on the way home.

Is this too depressing for a father daughter dance? My dad is not mushy. Doesn't want anything to do with the song picking. CSN are one of my favorites!!

If like a lot of the younger commenters here you are discovering Crosby, Stills and Nash for the first time, you are in for a treat. "Our House", "Southern Cross", "Suite Judy Blue Eyes", and "Carry On" are just a few of the incredible tracks waiting to enchant you. With their rich, otherworldly harmonies and deep, thought-provoking lyrics, CSN's music is among the most beautiful things you will ever hear on planet Earth. Enjoy!
