I Am Hungry (Ferron)

I am hungry how are you? You say that every lie came true I will hold you anyway And you'll grow strong and leave one day Is there any other way? Look desire in its face Watch it eat and leave no trace After you have disappeared Who will know and who will hear? Oh it's such delicious fear. Brushes with a starving hand Just the ache I understand After you have swallowed me Who do you think you will be? You'll be you and I'll be me. And still I will lay my body down And in your many voices drown Oh we are a hidden pool We are so long we are so cool While underneath we're dark and cruel And I am hungry how are you? You say that every lie came true I will hold you anyway And you'll grow strong and leave one day Is there any more to say? But : take the front door leave just one And don't return there are no chances pending If you want to live this way Only those like you will play And they never play to stay. And they never play to stay. And they never play to stay...they never play to stay...
