A Little Hungry, A Little Poor

My head’s a little hungry
My heart’s a little poor
I’ve always been fearful
I’ve never been sure
I keep delaying things
I keep running round
Like an unknown planet
Waiting to be found
I could change myself but it still will be me
I could never walk straight right through a door
For my head will always be hungry
And my heart will always be poor

My lips are tasteless
My eyes are a blur
I’ve always been frightened
Of that there’s no cure
I keep learning things
I keep forgetting folks
I remember every tear
Hidden in my jokes
I know all about the world but nothing about me
I’ve a desk full of honours, prizes galore
But my head will always be hungry
And my heart will always be poor

My dreams are quite simple
My thoughts I adore
My pulses are special
Down to the core
I have a lot of problems
I am full of flaws
I am indecisive
It’s part of my clause
Whatever I am, whatever I may be
Silly, foolish, naive, dumb, immature
But my head will always be hungry
And my heart will always be pure
