"The Hunter" as written by and Carl Wells Booker T. Jones....
I am the hunter, I know how to find you
I've taken your picture and I'm taking my time
So warn all your lovers of powers that bind you
To show them the meaning of what it is to live

You are the hunted, you know why I'm coming
To take all your troubles and your worries away
But if you're not ready, I might be persuaded
To give you a moment to be fearful again

They'll pray for you to come back

There's no use in hiding when I've made my decision
I'll get what I came for because that's all you can give
But don't be so worried, I'll lend you my secret
But you have to come with me for my secret to live

They'll pray for you to come back

    General CommentThis song is about the beckoning urge to let everything go and succumb to your life, for which "The hunter" is a metaphor.
    It's about the need we all feel to put our stale lives, flooded with lost love and forgotten dreams, behind, and fearlessly hit the open road, careless of where it would take us. And yet we all fear it - we are attached to our lives, we fear letting go. Chasing our dreams is not an easy task.
    But once one does it, it is then when one is truly free. And they'll never come back.
