Shadows fall
Through the darkness we reach
As the hunger calls
Then you run
To the passion that takes you over

No lookin' back
The chance will never come again
You risk it all
For your dream
Won't let you go

When you feel the hunger
Drivin' you on
To your one desire
Alone through an endless night
And the need's never satisfied

Through these eyes
Seen a river of tears
Seen the strong survive
Separate lives
And the emptiness makes you wonder
Blame it on love

You had it all and it's not enough
You'll never change
A slave to the fire
It never ends

Still you've got the hunger
Drivin' you on
To your one desire
Never deny your heart

The need to be satisfied
Still you feel the hunger
The primitive right
Of a restless breed
Surrendering all your life
To the true nature of the beast

No looking back
The chance will never come again
You give it all to your dream
It never ends
