Hands are made to help us to live
My hands long to give
 
My hands are empty
They long to share
With someone
Alone out there
Alone out there
 
Hands can dress a wound after a fight
And caress at night

My hands are empty
They long to share
With someone
Alone out there
Alone out there
 
When I’m helping
Life opens up for me
I don’t have to do more
 
Hands can play like children braiding hair
And cradle every care
 
My hands are empty
They long to share
With someone
Alone out there
Alone out there
