Dokken - The Hunter (Official Music Video)


Dokken - The Hunter - About the song


"The Hunter" is a song by American heavy metal band Dokken, released in 1985 on the album Under Lock and Key. The song was released as the first single from the album. The song peaked at number 25 on the Mainstream Rock chart in the United States.


The Hunter’ is a phenomenally powerful and emotive slower-paced song. Its chorus section is incredibly melodic, with Dokken really giving it his all with his incredible voice, and great lyrics. This melodic chorus is underscored by a distinctively Lynch ‘metal’ yet incredibly emotional simple riffs progression.


The hunter - Lyrics


Clouds roll by as I look to the sky And then the feeling comes, it comes on again You know desire burns like a fire, fire of sin Oh, will I ever learn You're the only one I could call my own But then the shadows fall and I'm gone again I'm a hunter Searching for love On these lonely streets again I'm the hunter Searching for things That I might never find again Care for you, you know that I always will I know it's hard for you, my taste for the kill But then it calls to me when the moon rises full in the sky You know it's not denied Will I ever find love and peace of mind On these streets again, will it ever end I'm a hunter Searching for love On these lonely streets again I'm the hunter Searching for things That I might never find again You know desire burns like a fire, fire within I guess I'll never learn You're the only one I could call my own But when the shadows fall, you know I won't be home I'm a hunter Searching for love On these lonely streets again I'm the hunter Searching for the things That I might never find again I'm a hunter Searching for love I'm the hunter Searching for the things That I might never find again
