'Twas Her Hunger

This song is by Grey DeLisle and appears on the album Homewrecker (2002) and on the live album Bootlegger, Vol. 1 (2003).

I had money and position
Silver watch to keep my time
Trusting wife and pretty children
When I met her I was fine
Twas her engine that propelled me
And soon we were city bound
Twas her beauty that derailed me
Twas her hunger brought me down

I took twenty thousand dollars
And where it went I can't explain
I'd be richer had I thrown it
From the window of the train
Beauty needs so much attention
Hunger does not compromise
Soon the city was our prison
I fell further in her eyes

Roses waiting at the stage door
Carriage waiting in the snow
Bowl of soup down at the mission
But I've lost the heart to go
Just a quarter for the room sir
And a nickel for the gas
Just a place to disappear
All good men must come to pass

No, it ain't the fall that kills you
It's your meeting with the ground
Twas her beauty that derailed me
Twas her hunger brought me down
