Hands, put your empty hands in mine
And scars, show me all the scars you hide
And hey, if your wings are broken
Please take mine so yours can open, too
'Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Does it mean to hold hands?
P.S.: Just curious ;)

Empty handed is an idiomatic expression for loss, as in "to go (or come) away empty handed."

Here, the lyrics refer to someone wounded by personal loss, with metaphoric scars to hide and metaphoric broken wings. The offer is to hold and thereby support and comfort. Which means more than physically holding hands.


i think is meaning, if you feel loss you can holding each others hand. you can borrow others wing, and please to make your self comfortable. because if you needed, i gonna stand by you. dont be shy dont feel so rude, i gave you what you want as belong as you with me :)
