       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
        F7                  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     F7
But as it came down near, so did a weary tear
  Em               A7                F7
I thought it was a bird, but it was just a paper bag

Chorus:
       G            Cmaj7     F7           G
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
           G        Cmaj7         F7
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
         G                 Cmaj7        F7        G
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em7                 A7             F7                G    B7
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

Verse 2:
E          C      G   
And I went crazy again today,
B7            E                C             G          B7  E
Looking for a strand to climb, looking for a little hope
C            G              B7               F7
Baby said he couldn't stay, wouldn't put his lips to mine
      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                     
He said?'It's all in your head,' 
                  G                        F7
and I said, 'So's everything,' but he didn't get it 
  Em               A7
I thought he was a man
           F7
But he was just a little boy

Chorus:
       G            Cmaj7     F7           G
Hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
           G        Cmaj7         F7
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
         G                 Cmaj7        F7        G
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em7                 A7             F7                G   
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love
       Cmaj7                    F7           G
Hunger hurts, but I want him so bad, oh it kills
           G        Cmaj7         F7
'Cause I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
         G                 Cmaj7        F7        G
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em7                 A7                   F7                G   
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when, when it costs too much to love
           Cmaj7                    F7           G
Oh, hunger hurts, and I want him so bad, oh it kills
          G          Cmaj7         F7
Because I know I'm a mess he don't wanna clean up
         G                 Cmaj7        F7        G
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em7                 A7        F7                         G
Hunger hurts, but starving, it works, when it costs too much to love
