Lyrics:

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

We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger

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

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)

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

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

We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger
We all have a hunger

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

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)

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

Infos:
„Hunger“ ist nach „Sky Full of Song“ die bereits zweite Veröffentlichung aus dem kommenden vierten Studioalbum „High As Hope“ (Vö: 29.06.2018) von Florence + The Machine und zum Glück hat es dieser Song auf das neue Album geschafft denn eigentlich war „Hunger“ gar nicht als Song gedacht sondern ein Gedicht.

Florence Welch: This song was never meant to be a song, it was a poem written in an effort to understand the ways I looked for love in things that were not love. I was never thinking it would be a song but maybe that’s the point. And by singing it out loud, together we become a choir, a chorus higher than the hurt, louder than loneliness.

Hunger ist musikalisch ein typischer Florence + The Machine Song, und dass ist in keinster Weise negativ gemeint. „Hunger“ wartet mit einer großartigen Instrumentalisierung und der wunderbaren Stimme von Florence Welch auf und hat definitiv Hit Potential. Ein wenig erinnert „Hunger“ zudem an „You’ve Got The Love“ (Lungs – 2009).

Inhaltlich ist dieser Song aber ganz untypisch für Florence + The Machine. Offen und deutlich wie nie zuvor sing Florence Welch über ihre Probleme. Es geht dabei um die Schmerzen und die Einsamkeit die die Suche nach Liebe hinterlassen kann und wie Versuche sich weniger Einsam zu fühlen einen bisweilen noch mehr Isolieren können indem versucht wird Liebe in Dingen zu finden wo es sie einfach nicht gibt. So singt Florence Welch übers reale hungern, Drogen und die Anerkennung die sie auf der Bühne bekommt.
