• Hunger Hurts

    I was staring at the sky, just looking for a star

    To pray on, or wish on, or something like that

    I was having a sweet fix of a daydream of a boy

    Whose reality I knew, was a hopeless to be had

    But then the dove of hope began its downward slope

    And I believed for a moment that my chances

    Were approaching to be grabbed

    But as it came down near, so did a weary tear

    I thought it was a bird, but it was just a paper bag

    Baby said he couldn't stay, wouldn't put his lips to mine,And a fail to kiss is a fail to cope

    I said, 'Honey, I don't feel so good, don't feel justified

    Come on put a little love here in my void,' he said

    It's all in your head,' and I said, 'So's everything'

    But he didn't get it I thought he was a manBut he was just a little boy

    Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills'

    Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up

    I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold

    Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love
