HELPLESS

© J.A. Storey -Taylor 14/02/2003



I can't stop the sun from setting

Or stop the moon from swelling

As it ascends,

And I can't stop my eyes from telling you

That I want to be more

Than friends.


I can't command the waves to retreat

Or guarantee there's gold

At rainbow's end,

Or make you hear what my eyes have told -

That I want to be more

Than a friend.


Helpless,

When you're near.

Helpless.

I can't help the feelings that I'm feeling,

I can't help what my eyes are revealing

And I'm helpless

Because you never hear.


I can't keep the clouds from forming

Or keep the wind from blowing

Where it intends,

And I can't keep my eyes from showing you

That I want to be more

Than friends.


I can't control the passing hours of time

Or demand hearts broken and alone

Begin to mend,

Or make you see what you've been shown -

That I want to be more

Than a friend.


Helpless,

When you're near me.

Helpless.

I can't help the feelings that I'm feeling

Or what my eyes are revealing

And I'm helpless

Because you never see.


Helpless,

When you're near

(When you're near me)

Helpless.

I can't help the feelings that I'm feeling

Or what my eyes are revealing

And I'm helpless

Because you never hear

(Because you never see).
