"Open Hands (feat. Trent Dabbs)" as written by and Trenton Dabbs Ingrid Michaelson....
Nobody wants to be the only one left standing
Nobody wants to be the only one to understand
And now I'm seeing the way that you're leaving
Without me

Now grow up and drift away
No toy can hold you out
Go crying out
The sound goes silent
Open hands are hard to hold on to anyway
Anyway

Everybody wants the world to make them live forever
And nobody wants to be the only one who sees the pain
And now I'm seeing the way that you're leaving
Without me

Now grow up and drift away
No toy can hold you out
Go crying out
The sound goes silent
Open hands are hard to hold on to anyway
Anyway, anyway, anyway

Now grow up and drift away
No toy can hold you out
Go crying out
The sound goes silent
Open hands are hard to hold on to
Anyway, open hands are hard to hold on to
Anyway, open hands are hard to hold on to
Anyway, anyway, anyway

    My InterpretationIngrid said in the interview this album is not about love / relationships as people think but about how little we are versus universe etc; about passing.. And i think this is someone saying good bye to someone who is dying / died... Very touching; makes me cry...
