Girl we made it to the top
We went so high we couldn't stop
We climbed the ladder leading us no-owhere
Two of us together, building castles in the air-air-air
We spun so fast we couldn't tell
The gold ring from the carousel
How could we know the ride would turn out bad
Everything we wanted, was everything we had
I miss the hungry years, The once upon a time
The lovely long ago, We didn't have a dime
Those days of me and you, We lost along the way-ay-ay
How could I be so blind, Not to see the door-oor-oor
Closing on the world, I now hunger for
Looking through my tears-ears, I miss the hungry years
We shared our daydreams one by one
Making plans was so much fun
We set our goals and reached the highest star
Things that we were after, were much better from afar-ar-ar-ar
Here we stand just me and you
With everything and nothing too
It wasn't worth the price we had to pay
Honey, take me ho-ome, let's go back to yesterday-ay-ay
I miss the hungry years, The once upon a ti-ime
The lovely long ago, We didn't have a dime
Those days of me and you, We lost along the way-ay-ay
How could I be so bli-ind, Not to see the door
Closing on the world, I now hunger for
Looking through my tears-ears, I miss the hungry years
I miss the hungry years

    Then hungry years are what it was all about... What you have is usually all you ever needed, you just never knew... Only when it was too late, and time now gone too... People, situations... Now gone, too.
