Lyrics

STARVED FOR AFFECTION © T. ELY 2016



UNDERNEATH HER BAGGY CLOTHES SHE HIDES FROM PRYING EYES
HOPING THAT NO ONE WILL SEE THE EMPTINESS INSIDE
WHAT'S MORE SHE'S HIDING FROM HERSELF SO EVEN SHE CAN'T SEE
A HUNGER DEEP INSIDE HER SOUL SHE JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FEED

SHE'S STARVED FOR AFFECTION A LITTLE WON'T BE ENOUGH SHE'S DYING DAY BY DAY FOR A TASTE OF SOME LOVE
SHE'S SEARCHING FOR PERFECTION
IN THE SKELETON OF HER REFLECTION
STARVED FOR AFFECTION


PAPER-THIN YOUNG MODELS TORN FROM FASHION MAGAZINES
STARE DOWN FROM HER BEDROOM WALLS TO FEED HER FANTASIES
IN HER DREAMS SHE LIKES HOW JESSIE SUPERMODEL SOUNDS
AND SHE'S SURE THAT SHE COULD JOIN THEM
IF SHE'D ONLY LOSE A FEW MORE POUNDS

(CHORUS)
[BRIDGE]
I HOPE SOMEDAY SHE FINALLY SEES THE TRUTH BEHIND THE LIES
'CUZ WOMEN COME IN MORE THAN JUST ONE SHAPE AND JUST ONE SIZE
AND BEAUTY ISN'T ONLY SEEN IT SHINES FROM DEEP INSIDE

(CHORUS)
