Tanya Donelly – This Hungry Life lyrics

Night falls and the light fades
And still you won't take off your sunglasses
I know what you're thinking
You think the kids don't care
And you're defeated
And the rain comes
And the rain goes again
And you see this as some symbol of your pain

This hungry life won't let you out whole
But you can change a thing or two
Before you go
This hungry life
Might not leave you with much
But you can change your story
And throw a hand up from the mud

Night falls and the rain comes
And the rain goes
And the moon is a stain when you've lost something
And you wait and you wait
And you wait
For the end or the girl or the song
Or the boy or the faith
Or the leader who won't bring you shame
And you wait and you wait
And you wait

This hungry life won't let you out whole
But you can change a thing or two
Before you go
This hungry life
Might not leave you with much
But you can change your story
And throw a hand up from the mud

This hungry life won't let you out whole
But you can change a thing or two
Before you go
This hungry life
Might not leave you with much

Kick up some dust
Earn someone's trust
Leave a few words behind you
If you must

Pick a good fight
And keep someone up all night
Change the story, change the story
