John Mayer - Helpless Lyrics

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

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

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

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

Help me
Help me
Help me

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

  41. Dave Pilgrim

    He is great at guitar, songwriting, performing and also singing.

    So much of SRV in JM songs and approach.

  42. Jake Williams

    How cringe is this crowd man

  46. Jason B

    Woo! JM slayed this one. This might be my new favorite track. This live performance was a beauty too!

  47. Lucas Brito

    John Mayer without Palladino and Steve Jordan makes no sense!!!

  48. maru sagara

    Hi Sir John Mayer, just wanted to say I love you 😊

  49. Ace Dragon

    this grooves harder than I don't need no doctor

    Xander Mohan

    It's a sweet groove. But to me "I dont need no doctor" is just the best

  50. sjfoster12

    John with Pino, David Ryan and Steve Jordan is pretty much as good as it gets

  51. Lauren C

    why is his crowd never enthousiastic. I mean this guy is one of the best guitarists in the world and they be standing there like ayyy ok.

    Russ monte

    I went and I thought I’d be super enthusiastic but truth be told you’re actually so shocked of how good he is live you just kinda admire. Easily the greatest music experience I’ve ever and will ever have.


    Watch his show on YouTube from Rock at Rio 2013

  55. Nick Levesque

    If you ever feel useless remember​ that JM has backup guitarists.

    Caleb Lim

    Sharkey is excellent

    adza botchway

    they're not backups tho.. they're rhythm guitarists while john is lead. both are essential to music


    @adza botchway yea but still a good joke

  89. Lozz

    What a live performer. One of the best guitarists around

  93. Lamar Hinojosa


  94. Dianne Stanley

    John Mayer played like all of the great rock guitarists were merging onto his Autobahn. We love his music and rarely does a day go by without his brilliant songs and complex musicality on our waves up here in Canada.

  95. Billy Ruegger

    Check out the audience close up at 0:15. Does anyone else agree that man is actor Michael C. Hall who plays Dexter?

  96. Tom Bryant

    Is that chick with overalls not the cutest?
