"Helpless" as written by and John Clayton Mayer....
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

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is simply just a song but that is never the case with John Mayer... This song could possibly be John reaching out to one of his exes (Katy Perry?) and states "If I'm helpless tell me now... and I'll stop trying to figure it out" asking her if it is worth trying for anymore, or even if he simply has a chance.

    This song is one of my favorites from the search for everything and its funky riff makes it feel like a tune straight from the "Continuum " era.
