      About "The Hunger"

      Lyrics for Waylon Jennings - "The Hunger"

      They said in her younger days
      Her beauty was enough to drive men wild
      But the hunger in her body then
      Was not the hunger of some lonely child.

      Like a butterfly in springtime
      Searching every field for loving's sweetest rose
      The embrace of many strangers
      Still could not release her from the hold.

      In the backstreets and the bedrooms
      All she's found is disappointments bitterly
      While the love that she's too often found
      Was enough to satisfy her needs.

      She's older than the years she holds
      And ageing fast with each day passing by
      On a downhill run to nowhere
      'Cause the hunger never can be satisfied.

      The reflection in her mirror's not the image
      She remembers in her mind
      Her beauty has been eaten by the hunger
      And the acid winds of time.

      She has danced the tune her demons played
      And payed the piper dearly for his song
      Empty now of all her pride but still inside
      Her hunger's just as strong.

      They said in her younger days
      Her beauty was enough to drive men wild
      But the hunger in her body then
      Was not the hunger of some lonely child
