[Verse 1]
     E                    C
I was staring at the sky,
     G                    B7
just looking for a star
   E           C
To pray on, or wish on,
   G                    B7
or something like that
      E                   C
I was having a sweet fix
     G             B7
of a daydream of a boy
      Em        F7
Whose reality I knew,
      A7
was a hopeless to be had
             E       C
But then the dove of hope
          G        B7
began its downward slope
      E                     C
And I believed for a moment that
   G                              B7
my chances were approaching to be grabbed
          E         C
But as it came down near,
         G     Em
so did a weary tear
  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
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em7                  A7             F7
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

G  C  F7

[Verse 2]
           E     C
And I went crazy again today,
G             B7
looking for a strand to climb
E             C            E   B7
Looking for a little hope
E            C
Baby said he couldn't stay,
G                B7
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 go-od, don't feel justified
E             C           G          B7
Come on put a little love here in my void,' he said
      E           C                        G
'It's all in your head,' and I said,
      G                         B7
'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
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em                  A7             F7
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

       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
I got to fold 'cause these hands are too shaky to hold
       Em7                  A7             F7
Hunger hurts, but starving works, when it costs too much to love

       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
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
