Album: High as Hope (2018)
Charted: 41
  • At seventeen, I started to starve myself
    I thought that love was a kind of emptiness
    And at least I understood then the hunger I felt
    And I didn't have to call it loneliness

    We all have a hunger
    We all have a hunger
    We all have a hunger
    We all have a hunger

    Tell me what you need, oh, you look so free
    The way you use your body, baby, come on and work it for me
    Don't let it get you down, you're the best thing I've seen
    We never found the answer but we knew one thing

    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)
    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)
    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)
    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)

    And it's Friday night and it's kicking in
    And I can't dress, they're gonna crucify me
    Oh, but you and all your vibrant youth
    How could anything bad ever happen to you?
    You make a fool of death with your beauty, and for a moment

    I thought that love was in the drugs
    But the more I took, the more it took away
    And I could never get enough
    I thought that love was on the stage
    You give yourself to strangers
    You don't have to be afraid
    And then it tries to find a home with people, oh, and I'm alone
    Picking it apart and staring at your phone

    We all have a hunger
    We all have a hunger
    We all have a hunger
    We all have a hunger

    Tell me what you need, oh, you look so free
    The way you use your body, baby, come on and work it for me
    Don't let it get you down, you're the best thing I've seen
    We never found the answer but we knew one thing

    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)
    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)
    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)
    We all have a hunger (we all have a hunger)

    And it's Friday night and it's kicking in
    And I can't dress, they're gonna crucify me
    Oh, you and all your vibrant youth
    How could anything bad ever happen to you?
    You make a fool of death with your beauty, and for a moment
