This Hunger

lyrics

Hard to say when it began
'Cept it's been too damn long
Can't shake that feeling
That I've been doing somethin’ wrong

'Neath every stone along the path
Sleeps a promise to reveal 
But those which once were just pebbles
Now are boulders which conceal

If I'd only made the effort
If I'd only  had the time
To see the sand for the grains
Instead of lookin’ for the line
Perhaps I'd be a bit more settled
a bit more satisfied
Or maybe it's this hunger
That makes me feel alive…

Still I
try, try ….
Though I don't know
why, why...

It ain’t about the punchline
It's all in the delivery
Yea the joke was kinda funny 
'til it was handed off to me

So it's sundown in the valley
Where that stream forbids the pass
There's a mountain to either side of me
And the water's rising fast

But still I
try, try ….
and I don't know
why, why...

So i push on like I always have.
push on though it hurts
Not because I’m some kind of Chosen One
but 'cause stayin’ ….. is worse

If I'd only made the effort
If I'd only  had the time
To see the sand for the grains
Instead of lookin’ for the line
Perhaps I'd be a bit more settled
a bit more satisfied
Or maybe it's this hunger
That makes me feel alive…

Still I
try, try ….
and I don't know
why, why...
no I don't know
why, why...
But I still
try, try…
