Lyrics

There is a town in north Ontario
With dream comfort memory to spare
And in my mind I still need a place to go
All my changes were there

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes, leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

Baby can you hear me now
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

The chains are locked and tied across the door
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

Baby, sing with me somehow
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flying across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes, leave us

Helpless, helpless, helpless
Helpless, helpless, helpless, helpless

 

[Neil Young]
