about

a story about hunting and getting lost in the urban jungle

lyrics

One day a lonely hunter
leaves her home to find new prey
A predator with cunning
somehow she looses her way
No landmarks look familiar
wandering for days and nights
The stars they too betray her
so she looks inside for insight, saying:

Why, tell me why, do I hunt high and low
In pursuit of a path and a sign that will not show
Oh why, tell me how, tell me who
I’d really like to know…

She’s just about to give up
when she spots beneath a tree
Another lonely hunter
he has been waiting patiently
So happy at last found
until they both realise
The only thing captured
same lost look in the other’s eyes.

Oh why, tell me why do we hunt high and low
In pursuit of a path, hungry for what is not owned
Oh why, tell me how, tell me who
I would really like to know

Why, tell me why do we hunt high and low
In pursuit of a path, hungry for what is not known
Oh why, tell me how, tell me who, tell me now,
Tell me where, tell me when, tell me what
I would really like to know…

(overtop 3rd chorus)
We are lost and found on this unknown ground
Oh the irony, sweet serendipity
We’re still lost and found, awareness so profound
