Simple Minds - Hunter And The Hunted Lyrics

Shooting from the hip
About our faith and love
I see it in your faces thin as shadow
See me as I figure in your late night plan
See me as I'm cocooned up in Badland
The side effects of cruising at the speed of life
The side effects of living in temptation
When only one star is waiting up on all of us
You'll see me as I'm cocooned up in Badlands
And how do I feel living in the eighties
And do I get to see the light of day

Kyoto in the snow but Heaven's far away
Sending their love - passion parade
Hunter and the Hunted
With me first times can never lie

They were young - they were brave - they were the honest set
The greatest show on earth is here tonight love
See me as a figure in the late night plan
See me as I'm cocooned up in Badlands
The side effects of cruising at the speed of life
The side effects of living in temptation
When only one star is waiting up on all of us
You'll see me as I'm cocooned up in Badlands
And how do I feel living in the eighties
And do I get to see the light of day

Kyoto in the snow
Heaven's far away
Sending their love
Passion parade
Hunter and the Hunted
With me first times can never lie
Only with you
Life moves so fast

When your hear me screaming
I'll be seeing through the eyes of love

Tell me can you hear me
Tell me can you see me

Simple Minds Hunter And The Hunted Comments
  1. Lauren Johnston

    ... gorgeous track; one of the prettiest songs from this era.

  2. paul holland

    I lived in the 70s and 80s thank god music awesome the years ahead hold nothing RIP Britain

  3. Kathleen Chassey

    It exists. There’s proof already of that! I’m in love once again with this one!!!!

  4. Tabbs Smith

    I suppose I’m lucky I have out of body experiences ! So I know that death is not the end, but I understand that when we are young we do look back with roses coloured glasses . But it’s not the end do not fear the end. So don’t despair love and give and enjoy life that you have now. Live it as much as you can as if it was your last day. Took me a shake up of life to say no live.

  5. Nephilim 81

    Well done. New gold Dream is more than just a is a sweet reality.
    My favourite from the Minds and it is timeless!


    Is this the best song from the best christ/bride themed album of time? A stellar mix.

  11. James McCarthy

    When S.M's were at their musical peak, along with all the other gem's on this fantastic album.
    Never tire of listening to this.
    Love it now as I loved it when I heard it for the very first time.
    Epic sound !!!

  12. Jan Pedersen

    This song kills me every time ............ I cannot explain the sensation inside, but with human words of 2019 it makes me feel alive and full of love, especially for my kids, my family, my parents. The song rips me wide open, the sound and the whole musical arrangement makes me joyful and sad at the very same time............. powerful, oh so powerful

  13. Margit S

    Damn I loved this tune back when it first came (lol not can) out and still do today. Magic

  14. Mike Smith

    What a song the lyrics when you hear me screaming ill be seeing through the eyes of love says it all

  15. kadiocalc

    I wish I still had vinyls but Hay Ho. There music is timeless and I'm looking forward to see them when they are on tour in Australia next year

    Margit S

    Tickets are on sale Monday I will have my finger on the ready.

  16. Craig Mcneill

    Still. My favourite album 37 years on. Maybe sparkle in the rain would have been just as good if they hadnt let steve lillywhite destroy any atmosphere or subtlety

  17. Kkaren Tamplin

    A great album also sparkle in the rain is another great album from fabulous group 40 years and still making great music their tour in April cannot wait to see them again in cardiff karen tamplin

  18. aldo oramas

  19. desq123

    Saw they about 10 years ago at the Albert Hall, still mind blowing. One of the best gigs I've ever been to.

  20. Dominique Rousseau

    C'est toujours un grand moment, a chaque fois cela m'emporte, c'est toute ma jeunesse, good

  21. Davide Santoro


  22. ASSELIN Jean-Philippe

    J'étais déjà désenchanté à 18 ans.Simple Minds berça ma mélancolie d'un monde meilleur qui ne serait pas avec The Cure et New Order.Ce qui advint par la suite ne me donna jamais tort.Ainsi va l'ordre des choses sous le soleil:monter,briller et descendre.Les années 80 furent nostalgiques,élégantes et pas vulgaires du tout! Il y avait encore de la poésie dans tout, y compris le rock alternatif!

  23. Sumeena Hari

    I’m 39 and I love this song so much. My husband who is 47 got me into this song. Good taste in music I say.
    Sends shivers down my spine. Such a great song and I’m guessing era...

  24. Silvia

    This song gives emotions, I love it 😍

  25. Claudia Lallai

    80 music forever

  26. Dan Carty

    Just balling my eyes out, PLEASE take me back - FFS just how good is this? 🙏🙏❣❣

  27. Iona Ramsay


  28. Owen McGee

    good sound, too repetitious with a non-voice. ambient pop/rock influenced later shoegaze. nice production, no virtues. bland.

  29. Kathleen Chassey

    I’m in love. I remember these guys. Always!

  30. robyg70

  69. Giovanni Malagrinó

    Solo in modo esclusivo di produrre questo genere di musica, erano gli anni '80 del '900 .come furono gli affreschi nel rinascimento nessuno più di allora fu in grado di creare tali capolavori. I SIMPLE MINDS lo sono nella musica .

  70. Giovanni Malagrinó

    Cinematic magic solo oh my

  96. Dale Parfitt

    Best band in world fin

  97. keith-lee castle

    I bought the album this belongs to in 1982....I was 13/14.....I played it to death then and still do..
    Sons and Fascination too...I long for the days when I went to HMV to buy an album with pocket money.
    I’d devour the artwork, lyrics and smell....Although this album didn’t have lyrics.
    For me, 1980-82 was an amazing time for records...Japan, Bowie, Gary Numan, Killing Joke, Banshees, Cure etc..


    I was right there with you brother and still am.


    that was the best music ever made...

    Louise X

    I grew up with this album and band (along with U2, Police, Pink Floyd and others) and it was one of the first I ever bought on cd.

    Margit S

    You have the same music tastes lol

  98. Big Flat

    The only the band that ever touched all bases

  99. Big Flat

    Just talented
