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
Keeping you of my mind
When I think I’ll be all right
I am always wrong cause

My hands don’t want to start again
My hands no they don’t want to 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 want to be without
Your hands and they will not let me go
no they will not let me go

I talk about you now
And yeah I do 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 little louder
Without you and

I see different shades now
and I I’m almost never afraid now
But when I think I’ll be okay
I am always wrong cause

My hands don’t want to start again
My hands no they don’t want to 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 want to be without
Your hands and they will not let me go
no they will not let me go

Sometimes I 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 almost broken
They miss holding my baby

“My Hands”
Leona Lewis for Final Fantasy XIII


and as for me, this song holds such a deep meaning…
being so close to a “goodbye” has never been this hard.
