The Hunter
Dokken 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.

I was 8 years old then! I wouldn't start playing drums for another year.

I didn't really get heavy in to hard rock until 88-90. By the time I started getting in bands the who9acene changed.

It was like I was super cool for a couple years with girls chasing me through the halls, only to have depressed, angry Nirvana types make the girls ugly and sullen. That was my 9/10th grade years.

In 9th I did start a metal band with a childhood friend that endures to this day. It will be 30 years in 2022!

Yeah, I've had plenty of opportunities, but I never loved any music more than Hard Rock. Looking back that 89/90 year was surreal. All my favorite songs were played on the radio and MTV.

Glad you got to experience it!

I did play drums in an 80's hair band tribute called RockStar in Detroit from 2009-2014. The singer we hired took over the band after I left. One of my very best friends plays drums with them currently. Back in the day we'd have epic drum jams. He'd bring his set over to my house and vice versa. We played all those great songs!

I'm a hunter
Searching for love
I'm the hunter
Searching for the things
That I might never find again

@MetalRocker94 100% can confirm, saw them 2 years ago. Buy still awesome to see live. Theyve been my favorite band for years.

Not anymore

MetalRocker94

True but, his voice is shot now. He has no upper range. He sings well below what he use to. And, he has to use so much nasality to even get anything mid-range. There's no power to his voice anymore. He sang too much and smoked too much. Completely blew out and shot his chords. Smoking is one of the worst things you can do as a singer. Around 1995 his voice started to go. His range dropped from 1996-2008. Anything from 2009 to present is either low or slightly mid-range. He probably hasn't hit a high note since 1995, 26 years ago.
