Crosby, Stills & Nash - Helplessly Hoping (With Lyrics)

"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

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!

Anyone who has ever felt suffocated in a marriage but unable to end it understands these lyrics so well.

Annihilation movie brought me here. These guys were a little before my generation, so I didn't experience this before. Any more songs like this from them?

Finally...someone who remembers CS&N...That was my favorite band back in high school artist wrote songs that meant something, and people got involved in the way this country was achieving. Folks nowadays don't give a damn about anyone and/or anything and just let the government ram new invasive laws down their throats without so much as a struggle...It saddens me to no end to see where we are now and where we could have been

Stephen Stills is one hell of a songwriter. Thanks for all the music, Stephen. "Three together, they are four for each other." CSN, indeed.

My mom just passed away and these guys were my parents band for 40 years. They drove from Flatbush to Saugerties to see them at Woodstock (their first live concert). We would go on road trips and blast all their albums... Sad the baby boomers are ending their lifespan...

This song brings back my Teen years and how CSN&Y songs really related to my life in so many ways. When I heard this song in the movie Annihilation, I was suddenly taken back to those years and am now going through all my music from back in the day and relearning the Lyrics. Any musicians in the Denver Co area looking for a singer that can do all the vocals to CSN&some Young songs??? I'd love to hookup with a or a few guitar player's and start singing again, it's been way to long and it helps clear my head and heart of clutter.. Reply if your seriously interested.. Thanks.. :)

Nunca me cansaré de escuchar esta musica recuerdos tan bellos

I was 13 when the song was released in 1969 and down to today I can't have enough of it - along with many of these guys' songs of mesmerizing vocal harmonies and guitar work. Evergreen music in a league of its own.

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.
