XIII "My Hands" is a promotional theme of the western versions of Final Fantasy XIII, performed by the English singer Leona Lewis with backing vocals by Stephen Simmonds and composed by Ina Wroldsen and Arnthor Birgisson. It plays as the ending theme in place of "Kimi ga Iru Kara" in the Japanese version.

"My Hands" is the one of the two theme songs in the series that were not written or composed specifically for Final Fantasy, the other one being Florence and the Machine's rendition of the song "Stand By Me" for Final Fantasy XV. However, "Stand By Me" was specifically arranged for Final Fantasy XV as evidenced by the section of the Prelude that can be heard on the song. In contrast, Leona Lewis had already recorded "My Hands" for her second album, Echo, which was recorded in September 2009. Square Enix reported approaching Leona to use her song in November 2009.

Lyrics Edit

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 late 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 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 wake, I see them reaching out for you
Quietly breakin' 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
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) And 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 (No, yeah)
(My hands) Shake and try to break whatever peace I may find
(My hands) Only agree to hold
(Your hands) No, they don't wanna be without (They don't wanna be without)
(Your hands) And they will not let me go
No, they will not let me go
No, they will not let me go
