"Fallen Icons" as written by and Jennifer Mclaren Wilhelm Leeb....
In a dark woods paved with snow living all alone
I forgot long ago what I'm looking for

Firecracker lightning seed coming back to me

This is how
You made my heart a hunter

I remember my little seed louder than a dream
I let my golden arrow fly to the bottom of the night
No hounds to guide me no army at my back
I'm gonna stand up

Firecracker lightning seed coming closer to me

This is how
You made my heart a hunter

Sunrise burns my fortress down crumbling to the ground
I found my arrow my lightning spark buried in my heart
No hounds to guide me no army at my back
I'm gonna stand up

Firecracker lightning seed it was always in me

This is how
You made my heart a hunter

    General CommentGreat song! I think this is about a girl, who is looking for a guy, and finds one, but who ultimately breaks her heart and leaves her.

    My InterpretationDiscovery of things in one's past having been lies or deception; understanding why you became as you are -- realising it wasn't your fault. Living with that understanding and consequence. Deciding where to go from here.

    Just my $0.02. Wonderful thing of songs. They're rather subjective.

    General CommentI think it's more girl meets boy, falls for boy, boy isn't interested in girl, girl heartbroken.

    General CommentI think of this song at a very literal level.
    With the hounds, the arrows, the fortress, & the sunrise, there's a lot of images presented. I've always thought of it as a story about a solitary girl-warrior in the woods without metaphorical meaning.

    General CommentI disagree with literal interpretation of the meaning of this song.

    "you made my heart a hunter" doesn't sound like Xena or Conan... if so, this song flat out sucks.

    If this song is about the transformation of a girl into a warrior princess, it would have said "you made me a hunter"

    "You made my heart a hunter" signify betrayal and leading to her heart to carelessness.

    The imagery is very emotional and describes her loneliness and lack of support throughout this ordeal.

    This sounds to me like she was left by her love one... and she is dealing with her recovery all alone...

    She believes she will come out stronger, caring less, and possibly hurt/hunt the next love she is with.

    General CommentTo me this song isn't necessarily about a romance guy/girl thing. It's more about someone who has forgotten the deepest desires of their heart, maybe has been searching in the wrong places to fulfill those desires/been getting hurt in the process, and is now once again rediscovering those desires and remembering what they truly want/need in their life. So I mean it could be all relationship related. Like maybe being in too many bad relationships caused this person to forget what they really want/deserve and they're rediscovering what they want in a romantic relationship after all those bad experiences but then again it could be applicable to something else as well. :)

    General CommentI agree with anope about the literal meaning

    In a dark woods
    Paved with snow
    Living all alone.
    I forgot
    Long ago
    What I'm looking for.

    it seems that she is a lonely warrior (like Xena or Conan) who chose or was forced to choose to live a life far from people for some reason unknown.
