LYRIC

[Verse 1]
The same drink that gets me out the door
Is the same drink that puts me on the floor
And the new thing I wanna try some more
Is the same mistake I used to make before

[Chorus]
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
And I'll stop trying to figure it out

[Verse 2]
The same brain that brings me ecstacy
Is the same pain that gets the best of me
And the one I love the most just said to me
A broken heart is all I'll ever be

[Chorus]
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
And I'll stop trying to figure it out
[Bridge]
Help me
Help me
Help me

[Chorus]
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
If I'm helpless tell me now
Tell me now
And I'll stop trying to figure it out

If I'm helpless
If I'm helpless
If I'm helpless
Then I'll stop trying to figure it out

About "Helpless"

This song was originally written during the sessions for Born and Raised, per a 2013 My Stupid Mouth interview

“There was a song called Helpless for Born and Raised that I adored. Everybody did not like it. It was one of the only times where my compass was off.

I loved that tune, man. It was great. ‘If I’m helpless / tell me now / tell me now / and I’ll stop trying to figure it out.’ It was mean and it was cool. I’ve just made enough records now to know during the making of the record what is going to congeal and what is not."

The track is led by a retro guitar line which is reminescent, according to Rolling Stone, of the late 70s and early 80s Stones tracks, and it’s one of the few songs on the album John recorded live in the studio.
