Starving - Hailee Steinfeld & Grey ft. Zedd




The Experience: I was so much younger yesterday... Every relationship changes how you feel and who you are...



Music video: Hailee starts off alone with one of her dancers, giving the impression that this is a romance. But if it is, it's a very open one, since more dancers arrive on the scene and she cycles through them all. The music video underlines Starving's vision of relationships as a way to get more feelings, and adds partners to the mix, one after another, as new feelings are needed. The smiles on everyone's faces clear up the ambiguity of the I was so much younger yesterday line: Hailee isn't worried about lost innocence. She's just enjoying the present moment until the next one comes around. Grey also cameos in the video, pulling up to warehouse where Hailee is dancing and getting out to watch.


The Meaning of Starving: Hailee Steinfield focuses on the emotions and feelings that a relationship puts you through. But the final takeaway - I was so much younger yesterday - is deeply ambiguous. Have I grown? Or have I simply lost my innocence? The answer depends on each relationship.

Ask yourself: How has each relationship changed me? For better or worse?

EP: HAIZ (2015)

LYRICS:

You know just what to say
[Version with Zedd:] Sh-t that scares me
[Version with Grey:] Things that scare me
I should just walk away
But I can't move my feet

The more that I know you, the more I want to
Something inside me's changed
I was so much younger yesterday, oh

I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you
Don't need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo
By the way, right away, you do things to my body
I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you

(I didn't know that I... I didn't know that I... 'til I tasted you)
(I didn't know that I... I didn't know that I... 'til I tasted you)

By the way, right away, you do things to my body
I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you

You know just how to make
My heart beat faster
Emotional earthquake,
Bring on disaster

You hit me head on, got me weak in my knees
Yeah, something inside me's changed
I was so much younger yesterday, aye
So much younger yesterday, oh, yeah

I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you
Don't need no butterflies when you give me the whole damn zoo
By the way, right away, you do things to my body
I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you

(I didn't know that I... I didn't know that I... 'til I tasted you)
(I didn't know that I... I didn't know that I... 'til I tasted you)

By the way, right away, you do things to my body
I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you
You, yeah, 'til I tasted you

(I didn't know that I... I didn't know that I... 'til I tasted you)

By the way, right away you do things to my body
I didn't know that I was starving 'til I tasted you

The more that I know you, the more I want to
Something inside me's changed
I was so much younger yesterday
