Electric Light Orchestra – Helpless lyrics

Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

I thought about it but I couldn't think of what to say
But I thought about it anyway, yeah
I tried to tell you what you mean to me
But it didn't come so easily, no

I never reckoned
For more than a second
Just how it would be on my own

I'd be helpless, without you
I'd be helpless, without you

The dawn that calls beyond the night
Tells its old story
The shadows fade into the light
In all it's glory

Helpless
Helpless, baby, I'm a helpless
Helpless, baby
I'm a helpless

If I could put a good shine on the past
Do you think that we could make it last, oh yeah
Seems to mind the time goes fast
I wonder if the vote is cast

Now that you mention it
Got my attention
I quite clearly blew me away

I'd be helpless, without you
I'd be helpless, without you

The dawn that calls beyond the night
Tells its old story
The shadows fade into the light
In all it's glory

Helpless
Helpless, baby, I'm a helpless
Helpless, baby
I'm a helpless, without you
I'd be helpless, without you

Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless
