My Hands

  • I wake in the morning, tired of sleeping
    Get in the shower, and make my bed alone
    I put on my makeup, talk into the mirror
    Ready for a new day, without you

    And I walk steady on my feet
    I talk, my voice obeys me
    I go out at night, sleep without the lights
    And I do all of the things I have to
    Keepin' you off my mind
    But when I think I'll be alright
    I am always wrong, cause

    My hands don't wanna start again
    My hands, no they don't wanna understand
    My hands, they just shake and try to break whatever peace I may find
    My hands, they only agree to hold your hands
    And they don't wanna be without your hands
    And they will not let me go
    No they will not let me go

    I talk about you now
    And go a day without crying
    I go out with my friends now
    I stay home all alone
    And I don't see you everywhere
    And I can say your name easily
    I laugh a bit louder, without you

    And I see different shades now
    I'm almost, never, afraid now
    But when I think I'll be okay
    I am always wrong, cause

    My hands don't wanna start again
    My hands, no they don't wanna understand
    My hands, they just shake and try to break whatever peace I may find
    My hands, they only agree to hold your hands
    No they don't wanna be without your hands
    And they will not let me go
    No they will not let me go

    Sometimes I'll wake
    I see them reaching out for you
    Quietly break whatever shields I spent so long building up
    I cannot fake, 'cause when they cry I'm unspoken
    They miss holding my baby

    My hands (my hands)
    No they don't wanna understand
    They just shake and try to break whatever peace I may find

    My hands, your hands, they don't wanna be without your hands
    No they will not let me go
    No they will not let me go
    My hands, don't wanna start again
    My hands, no they don't wanna understand
    My hands, they just shake and try to break whatever peace I may find
    My hands, they only agree to hold your hands
    No they don't be without your hands
    And they will not let me go
    No they will not let me go

    No, no, no they will not let me go
