it was the hungriest night I ever knew
but it was hungry for you, love
and what a shame we spend so little time living
isn't it?

and our hunger is so wild like an only child
who could scream a healthy scream
what do you want to know?
I'll tell you anything

Your touches are virtue and I’m barely two shoes on the ground
How'd I get here?
For running pushes your rabbit feet around the roots of trees
How'd I get here?

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship full of desire and infatuation and longing not just towards each other but towards the world
    "what a shame that we spent so little time living" seems to me like they're hungry for life and everything it offers
    Beautiful song

    General CommentThis is what I hear:

    Your touches are virtue and I’m rarely two shoes on the ground
    How'd I get here?
    For running pushes your rabbit feet around the roots of trees
    How'd I get here?

    These lyrics express longing rather beautifully. The only thing I get confused about is the "only child" part.

    Ugh I love this song so much.

    General Commentit was the hungriest night I ever knew
    but it was hungry for you, love
    and what a shame we spend so little time living
    isn't it?

    our hunger is so wild like an only child
    I could scream a healthy scream
    what do you want to know?
    I'll tell you anything

    Your touches of virtue, and I'm rarely two shoes on the ground,
    how'd I get here?
    From rubbing horseshoes, your rabbit feet, underground, the roots of trees
    how'd I get here?

    I guess I'm getting an Alice In Wonderland vibe. Wish they'd publish the lyrics for us!

    General CommentAnother beautiful beatiful song from this guy

    yeh its a tough one lyrics are really vague at points

    he obiously likes to do this but it is perfect for his songs

    i was sure he is saying - " and im burning tissues on the ground "

    which means she is so pure and he is the opposite

    but why would anyone burn tissues?
