EMPTY HANDS

I'm feeling so lost
I can't see where I'm going
Is there something ahead
Did I leave what's important behind

My body's so tired,
I am aching down to my soul
Can't hold on, can't let go
While I'm spinning out of control

(And) Life passes by like scenes from a movie
To an ending that I never planned
All that I want I keep pushing away
Until I'm holding on with these two empty hands

I walk through the day
Like a blind man in heaven
Reaching for dreams
That have been right in front of me

When things get too close,
I can't trust what I feel inside
Can't hold on, can't let go
Why am I always running to hide

(Where) Life passes by like scenes from a movie
To an ending that I never planned
All that I want I keep pushing away
Until I'm holding on with these two empty hands

Daydreams and nightmares
All have to end
Don't want to see life
Slip through my hands

And life passes by like scenes from a movie
To an ending that I never planned
All that I want I keep pushing away
Until I'm holding on with these two empty hands
