Introduction

The "Hotel Melanoma" moniker is a metaphor for living with my particular brand of cancer. Except for those lucky few of us deemed "cured", all we cancer survivors are guests of one of the many, many branded hotels in the "Hotel Carcinoma" chain. We can check out any time we like, but we can never leave. Meanwhile, let's be livin' it up; and please support cancer education, prevention, and treatment research.

A Hungry Heart

A request from the Hotel Chaplain, Rev. Carol, “Hungry Heart” from Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band…

Got a slice of skin from my lower back
Doc sent out for some slides, said my cancer is black
Found some lymph nodes and doc knows why they’re glowing
C took a wrong turn and it just kept going

Every T-cell’s got a hungry heart
Every T-cell’s got a hungry heart
Lay down for IVs and you play your part
Every T-cell’s got a hungry heart

I fought fear in hospitals far
Medics in gloves I knew they’d try to mend
I took what they had and it ripped me apart
Now here I am stuck in the Hotel M

Every cancer’s got a hungry heart
Every cancer’s got a hungry heart
Lay down for IVs and you play your part
Every cancer’s got a hungry heart

Every mole mate needs a place to vent
Every mole mate wants to join their own
Don't make no difference what nobody says
Ain’t no mole mate like to be alone

Every mole mate’s got a hungry heart.
Every mole mate’s got a hungry heart
Stay out of UVs and you speak from heart
Every mole mate’s got a hungry heart
