Original Music & Lyrics by Anna Clifford Tait and Stephanie Heath
RECORDING of this song : Hurry Hunter
Hunter steps through shadows swiftly Creeping, creeping carefully Following the signs that lead him Signs of promise, signs of life
Chorus: Hurry, hunter, darkness chases Don't let nightfall catch you out Once the sun sets, your role changes Blood on snow, you are the prey
Up ahead a movement flashes Hunter freezes, senses strain There she is - the bow swings ready, Arrow nocks to bring her down.
Still the moment, silence rings out Arrow looses, flying fast At the last, the gentle doe hears Shivers, bucks and off she goes.
Hunter runs, a trail of crimson Stains the snow, the shot was true But the doe is fleeting, fleeing Chase is on to win the prize.
Blood on snow the trail grows thicker Weaker, slower, still she runs Hunter thinks of crying children Follows on as darkness falls.
Silver body lies before him Crumpled on the forest floor Hunter sees, then come the growlings Children they are crying still.
