A MANS' HEART IS HUNGRY;

IT ACHES FROM DEEP INSIDE.

ONLY LOVE CAN FILL IT;

EMPTY LONELINESS, IF DENIED.

 

FROM A YOUTH THROUGH MANHOOD;

THE HEART IS A LONELY SEEKER.

IT'S ALWAYS ON THE HUNT;

EACH BETRAYAL MAKES IT WEAKER.

 

LOVE CAN BREAK A HEART;

REND IT ASUNDER INSTANTLY.

CAN ALSO FILL IT FULL;

PRESERVING IT FOR ALL INFINITY.

 

LOVE IS A YEARNING EMOTION;

HEART IS FLESH AND BLOOD.

YET, IT CONTROLS THIS FEELING;

SOMETIMES AN OVERWHELMING FLOOD.

 

HUNGER PANGS CAN BE INTENSE;

AN EMPTY HOLLOWNESS TO SATISFY.

THE HEART DIRECTS THE MIND;

SEARCHING FOR LOVE TO GRATIFY.

 

DESIRING THE LOVE IT NEEDED,

THIS MANS' HEART WAS HUNGRY.

IT WAS USED TO FEELING PAIN,

THEN IT FOUND YOU, HONEY.
