Lyrics

HUNTIN' IN THE DARK

Originally written in 1974: Bill Dake
Re-write 2020: Bill Dake ASCAP

Driftin' in and out of shadows at night she goes
Who's to say if she's wrong or right
Depends upon the way the wind blows
Depends upon the way the wind blows

Try though you might
You'll never catch sight of her heart
Search all you can through the thick and thin
You'll end up back at the start
Beware the point of her dart

She can't come out in the light to play
She'd turn to dust and just blow away
So it's in the shadows that she seeks her prey
She does her HUNTIN' IN THE DARK

Livin' on the blood of the one's she's loved to death
Best you avoid all her physical charms
And her honey breath
She's got a sweet tooth
She loves to share

She can't come out in the light to play
She'd turn to dust and just blow away
So it's in the shadows that she seeks her prey
She does her HUNTIN' IN THE DARK

Driftin' in and out of shadows at night she goes
When she's HUNTIN'IN THE DARK

Very enjoyable and sonicaly sound piece of work here.Bob Dylan like!I love it!

What I really like about this song are the unusual chord structures, where the the haunting somewhat jazzy melody goes is unpredictable yet it makes sense and holds together. It's the unusual melody and progressions that really sell this song. The lyrics are unique and follow the mood and unpredictability of the tune. Any provider looking for something different, apart from the usual typical fare, should be delighted with this.

Nicely written song with interesting lyrics. Sort of like a Maneater theme sung by Jimmy Buffet, but with a very smooth musical flow.

Definitely more jazz overtones than rock, but I enjoyed the listen. Some really nice chord changes.
