Stayed true to the things I knew when I was younger
And food and love was all but left to hunger.
'Cause when I stray from my truth as I grow older
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger.

I think about you on a moonlit night
And the stars all seem to weep.
When there's so much to lose
There's never any time for sleep.

Look at me doing all these things without you.
We always left a new world untrue.
Where was it we tried hard not to go to?
I think that's how I finally came through.

All the things we took for granted
The words still live on in my head
All the times I took for granted
All the words I never said.

I think about you in the moonlit night,
And the stars all seem to weep.
When there's so much love to give,
There's never any time for sleep, yeah.

So I stayed true to the things I knew when I was younger
And human life was all but left to hunger,
'Cause when I stray from the truth as I grow older
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger.
Too much leaves an empty hollow hunger.

Living without you
Living without you.
Living without you, oh.
