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 do it 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 abit 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
Mmm...

    Trying to get over someone but it doesnt really work caz u see yourself wanting them even more. Stoping urself from trying new things that would help you get over him/her

    No matter how much one tries, the memory of a loved one will always follow them... Because regardless of the past, the future is new. Blank, yet whole. And one is given another chance. To laugh. Breathe. Hold. Love. Because, love - it never ends.

    Our hands (and feet) reach out for our goals. That's what they represent to our minds. The can be part of our consciousness or not. Once they held their goal and now they are empty. They rebel and call forth a phantom in the person's mind that cannot hide from defenses made up by that mind. They want what they want; the energy of the beloved they got used to. They are grieving and making the whole person see that and grieve also.
