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 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 it's 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
