Crosby, Stills Nash - Helplessly Hoping


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 goodbye 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 goodbye? 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

Stephen Stills is one hell of a guitar player.... so many of his songs sound fairly straight forward but have really odd twists, similar to Elliot Smith.

They are One Person They are Two Alone They are Three Together They are For Each Other. Amen.

Saw Annihilation then came home and slapped my father for not introducing to me Crosby, Stills, & Nash

This is a song that makes you reflect on all the good times and all the bad times in a love lost and if not but for a brief moment make you wish you could do it all again.
Tamara Mangus
This guy's are musical genius's, the three part harmony is unbelievable! One of my favorite bands of all time! They are one person, they are two alone, they are three togher , they are four each other.

Getting high and reminiscing brought me here. Perhaps I'll never leave . Been listening for 50 years.
Troy Greenwood
CSN, The folk power trio.

I have always loved this song. Harmony, alliteration, beauty, longing. Wish there was more of this today. Thank you, Stephen Stills.
Mark Cherry
Yes watched annihilation film but just reminded me of my dad who passed away in 2011 of dementia. Strange how certain song reminds you of long lost loved ones.

Wow, every time this song gives me chills

I have no idea what they're talking about But i still love this
Peter Fountotos
We've slid down a very long musical slope since the 60's, haven't we?
Jay Corby
OMG! Where did this sound go? I have much of their work on vinyl, and everything they ever recorded on CD or downloaded. Their style could be copied and their songs covered, but not ever will they be duplicated. The music and the era match up, and if you were not living during the time in which this was produced you'll always be lacking something - it is called 'memories'.

suddenly i'm young again, ahhh the power of music...

Man! CSN (& sometimes Y) were people lucking into being in the right place at the right time. Timing is everything! But, my God, the harmonies & the acoustics? Their sound captured the times of 1969 & '70. I wouldn't go back, but I often wonder about the many people I met along the path, between then & now. Peace, sisters & brothers...

I'm french, I lost myself in Youtube and I've found this gem....I mean WOW.

“...only to trip at the sound of goodbye...” My dear wife of 9 years has left me for another man. 😢. I helplessly hope for a loyal, gentle soul to love 🍀. (Someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes 😍 and flowers 🌸 in her hair.)
Penny Davis
This song makes me cry every time I hear it 😪

I experienced this song for the first time puffing on a “happy log” with my older sister and her friends. Look into the setting sun....

No movies brought me here. Just a Canadian born and raised on tasteful music bestowed to me as child in the 80s by my awesome parents.

Kind of sad when a relationship reaches the end even though both still love eachother.

I've seen Annihilation twice in the space of a few days and I gotta say. This song stuck with me. I get goosebumps every time I hear it. Such a perfect song choice for the movie.
Dan Lancaster
quadruple plus entendre for annihaltion saw that film and my mind was blown. A film for our time. next class folks. What is time
Sarah Mohlman
I absolutely LOVE them. I grew up listening to this album. I had the opportunity to see them in concert. THEY ARE GREAT!

The CSN Blue Album from my father's collection i listened again and again brought me there ^^ And i've never heard about annihilation !

I grew up listening to this music, it was part of my mother's collection, and I still enjoy it today!!

“Heartlessly helping himself to her bad dreams” wow
sathvik Jain
This is one of my favorite songs, I admire how they have used thier voices, in the line of we are one together.. one voice,two together..two voice's and three. Three voices.. it's brilliant
Jimmy Page 1971
So glad that people like Brandi Carlile have been influenced by people like Stephen Stills. As Jimmy Page puts it, he is “passing the baton.”

Damn I adore Crosby, Stills, and Nash

I seriously paused Annihilation 10 seconds into this song playing and pulled out my phone to Shazam this song, glad I did!

I was anihilated by this song the first time I heard it in the early 70s. Never heard of Anihilation though. A film I guess. My son raved about Mr Blue by ELO after he saw Sunshine of a spotless mind. He told me off for not telling him about them. I told him about Joni Mitchell and John Martyn just to cover myself from further attacks. Any more suggestions?
Jason Johnson
Yes, this song was stored in my memory when i was 3 or 4, brought back from watching Annilihation.
Thomas Hofheinz
My first love, decades ago, brought me truth and brought me here.
Eddie Blunt
This gives my heart a toothache, and it was the best by far track to use when she was painting their bedroom, no other key so exquisitely cut for unlocking that moment, for a lot of us now watch anialation savoring the moments as they lead to the bursting return. Flawless.
Garrett Hammell
Good music, miss the days of my youth.
Pie CatLady
Amazing alliteration and a clever bridge. Endlessly admiring their music - still stupendous after all these years!
Genevieve Girling
The alliteration in some lines of the lyrics is low-key genius.

Its great to see Hollywood lead souls to truly great arts. I grew up with this kind of music back before VHS existed. I can hear the crackle of the vinyl still. Its sad to watch it all die for "smart" things, concluding that we obviously arent.

Video plays NOW, not after ad.

This is a beautiful song, just a masterpiece!

Fit Annihilation really well.

Why cant this song be 18 minutes long?

This recording is singing directly into my soul. Like, Feeler-Phasers on Maximum stun. Damn they're good.

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 goodbye 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

Memories of my youth. Loved them then, still do to this day. This was when music was pure magic. Will never get old for me, no matter how much older I get.

How can 427, unmusically educated people give a thumbs down, unbelievable, loved this when I was young love it in my older years even more, appreciating forever.

So melancholy. Takes me back 35yrs to similar times. What powerful music.

Thanks Alex Garland, for introducing me to this song. I get a feeling i'll have nostalgic love for it, years from now <3
