[Verse]

         E            C         G           B7
I was staring at the sky, just looking for a star
            E                 C             G              B7
 To pray on, or wish on, or something like that
             E                C               G             B7
 I was having a sweet fix of a daydream of a boy
           F7sus2       Em               A7
 Whose reality I knew, was a hopeless to be had
                        E          C                        G            B7
 But then the dove of hope began its downward slope
              E                                C 
And I believed for a moment that my chances 
    G                          B7
Were approaching to be grabbed
                  E                C                    G        F7sus2
 But as it came down near, so did a weary tear
       Em            A7             F7sus2
 I thought it was a bird, but it was just a paper bag 


[Chorus]

           G             C7     F7sus2 G
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills 
           G            C7           F7sus2
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
              G                  C7                 F7sus2       G
 I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold 
              Em7                      A7                  F7sus2  
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love


[Verse]

      E        C      G    B7 
 And I went crazy again today,
         E                      C               G               B7
looking for a strand to climb, looking for a little hope 
   E              C               G              B7
Baby said he couldn't stay, wouldn't put his lips to mine
         F7sus2      Em   A7
And a fail to kiss is a fail to cope
              E                    C         G                        B7
I said, 'Honey, I don't feel so good, don't feel justified 
    E                     C             G               B7
Come on put a little love here in my void,' 
              E             C                   G                        F7sus2
He said 'It's all in your head,' and I said, 'So's everything' But he didn't get it 
  Em
I thought he was a man
                    A7         F7sus2
 But he was just a little boy


[Chorus]

           G             C7     F7sus2 G
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills 
           G            C7           F7sus2
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
              G                  C7                 F7sus2       G
 I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold 
              Em7                      A7                  F7sus2  
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love  

           G             C7     F7sus2 G
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills 
           G            C7           F7sus2
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
              G                  C7                 F7sus2       G
 I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold 
              Em7                      A7                  F7sus2  
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

at: "whose reality I knew," it sounds better as F and the ending again at Em.

at: "but it was just a paper bag," again F and ending in A7

then at: "hunger hurts..but I want 'im so bad oh it kills"
it's better as G,C,F,G

you get the idea.
