You're like a child with old eyes,
Cynical and sensible, always full of surprises
You travel far and wide
Looking for the feeling, lost inside you
They don't understand you, no
Until it's too late
With everything they've handed you
On a silver plate

Are you hungry for a little more
Than what you've had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
Whet your appetite, are you hungry?

Now give me this mountainside
Cool waters to lie beside
Give me these two strong eyes
To see the difference between truth and lies
Ah, give me this feeling when you kiss me baby

Every day and every night
That's all I need, yes
Everything is gonna be all right

Are you hungry for a little more
Than what you've had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
Whet your appetite, are you hungry?

You're like a sight for sore eyes, lyrical and gentle
Border-lining sentimental
You're like a dream realized
So why do I keep falling back to sleep,
I'm so serious and deep.

Are you hungry for a little more
Than what you've had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
Whet your appetite, are you hungry?

Are you hungry for a little more
Than what you've had before?
Are you hungry for a taste of life?
Whet your appetite, are you hungry?

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
Album art
Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
