[Intro]
Ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh, ooh

[Verse 1]
At seventeen, I started to starve myself
I thought that love was a kind of emptiness
And at least I understood then the hunger I felt
And I didn't have to call it loneliness

[Chorus]
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me what you need, oh, you look so free
The way you use your body, baby, come on and work it for me
Don't let it get you down, you're the best thing I've seen
We never found the answer but we knew one thing

[Chorus]
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger

[Post-Chorus]
And it's Friday night and it's kicking in
And I can't dress, they're gonna crucify me
Oh, but you and all your vibrant youth
How could anything bad ever happen to you?
You make a fool of death with your beauty, and for a moment

[Verse 2]
I thought that love was in the drugs
But the more I took, the more it took away
And I could never get enough
I thought that love was on the stage
You give yourself to strangers
You don't have to be afraid
And then it tries to find a home with people, oh, and I'm alone
Picking it apart and staring at your phone

[Chorus]
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell me what you need, oh, you look so free
The way you use your body, baby, come on and work it for me
Don't let it get you down, you're the best thing I've seen
We never found the answer but we knew one thing

[Chorus]
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger

[Post-Chorus]
And it's Friday night and it's kicking in
And I can't dress, they're gonna crucify me
Oh, you and all your vibrant youth
How could anything bad ever happen to you?
You make a fool of death with your beauty, and for a moment
I forget to worry
