​The Hungry Years

This song is by Rita Coolidge and appears on the album Anytime...Anywhere (1977).

We, we made it to the top
We went so high we couldn't stop
We climbed the ladder leading us nowhere
Two of us together building castles in the air

We spun so fast, we couldn't tell
The gold ring from the carousel
How could we know the ride would turn out bad
Everything we wanted was everything we had

I miss the hungry years
The once upon a time
The lovely long ago
We didn't have a dime
Those days of me and you
We lost along the way

How could I be so blind not to see the door
Closing on the world I now hunger for
Looking through my tears
I miss the hungry years

We shared our daydreams one by one
Making plans was so much fun
We set our goals and reached the highest star
The things that we were after were much better from afar

And here we stand just me and you
With everything and nothing too
It wasn't worth the price we had to pay
Honey take me home, let's go back to yesterday

I miss the hungry years
The once upon a time
The lovely long ago
We didn't have a dime
Those days of me and you
We lost along the way

How could I be so blind not to see the door
Closing on the world I now hunger for
Looking through my tears
I miss the hungry years
