"Different Hunger" as written by Jimmy Messer and Trevor Hall....
This is a different hunger
Heavier than thunder
Satisfied by love, love
I thought I said

Searching for pleasure but we only find pain
Not living in a hotel living in a brie
Chasing our chasing after lemon field
But now we all follow us down to our graves
If it ain't in here, it won't be there
I say oh yeah oh yeah

This is a different hunger
Heavier than thunder
Satisfied by love, love
I thought I said

That's what I said
Looking up, looking for a higher taste
We had it once before
But it seems to be misplaced
People come together cause it ain't no race

Always 21 every single day
If it ain't in here
It won't be there
I say oh yeah oh yeah
If it ain't in here
It won't be there
I say oh yeah oh yeah

This is a different hunger
Heavier than thunder
Satisfied by love, love
I thought I said
That's what I said

This is a different hunger
Heavier than thunder
Satisfied by love, love
I thought I said
That's what I said
Oh ooh ooh ooh
Searching for pleasure
But we only find pain

This is a different hunger
Heavier than thunder
Satisfied by love, love
I thought I said
That's what I said

This is a different hunger
Heavier than thunder
Satisfied by love, love
I thought I said
That's what I said

Oh my my, be humbler than a blade of grass
Be patient and forgiving like a tree
Speak of this love, speak of this love
The time has come to speak of this love
Speak of this love, speak of this love

    Lyric CorrectionAwesome job! Just a few corrections..

    Searching for pleasure but we only find pain
    Not living in our hearts only living in our brains
    Chasing, yeah we're chasing after name and fame
    But none of that will follow us down to our graves


    Instead of "Always 21 every single day" it's "All is one and one is all every single day"

    And then towards the end - (some of it is my interpretation)

    To ode Mama, be humbler than a blade of grass
    Be patient and forgiving like the tree
    Take no honor for thyself, give all up to Her
    And chant Her sweet name unceasingly

    The time has come to speak of this love
    Speak of this love, speak of this love
    The time has come to speak of this love
    Speak of this love, speak of this love

    There's no prayer.. (can't really get this line)
    The playthings of lust or the toys of fate
    As many times as I may be reborn
    Grant me a steadfast love for the Lord

    The time has come to speak of this love
    Speak of this love, speak of this love
    The time has come to speak of this love
    Speak of this love, speak of this love

    Of this love


    The lines "As many times as I may be reborn, grant me a steadfast love for the Lord" really speak out to me. While I don't relate to any specific religion, I do identify myself as spiritual.. I tend to look at the universe from a Christian point of view most times because it was an important part of my upbringing but certain aspects of Hinduism make a lot of sense to me as well. I thorougly believe in the idea of reincarnation, and I hope that in my next life I'm born into an environment that nurtures my love and belief in a Higher Being.
