STARVING

Words and Music by Johnny Arco

I’m starving for love
I’m starving to learn
I’m starving for life
and to feel the burn

I’m starving for faith
Hallelujah, Yes I am!
I need something to make me feel brand new

but most of all I’m starving for food
and I’m going to stay that way…

Until my voice can make you sing
Songs can make you dance
My art can make you see
and my jokes can make you laugh

Until the lessons that I give
are ones I could afford
and the numbers 9 to 5
are just tensions on a chord

Until the things that people say
Their comments made out loud
Are things that I could rest assure
Would make my Grandma proud

I’m starving.

I’m starving to give
Oh, I’m so tired of taking
I’m starving to cry
Instead these smiles I’m always faking

I’m starving to scream
Can’t keep my mouth shut any longer
and I’m starving to be right
now that I can’t get any wronger

but above all these things
what I mustn’t fail to include…

I’m fucking starving for some food
and I’m going to stay that way…

Until my voice can make you sing
My songs can make you dance
My art can make you see
and my jokes can make you laugh

Until the lessons that I give
are ones I could afford
and the numbers 9 – 5
are just tensions on a chord

Until the things that people say
Their comments made out loud
Are things that I could rest assure
Would make my Grandma proud
I’m starving.

Do you have some food?
