Björk - Hunter

If travel is searching
And home has been found

I'm not stopping

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter
I'll bring back the goods
But I don't know when

Thought I could organise freedom
How Scandinavian of me
You sussed it out, didn't you?

You could smell it
So you left me on my own
To complete the mission
Now I'm leaving it all behind

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter.....

(you just didn't know me!)

(you just didn't know me)

"Hunter" is about the desire and willingness to leave behind what is known and venture into the unknown in search of self-discovery and personal growth. Björk may have started out on a particular path but realized that it was not right for her and needed to find her own way. The outro "You just didn't know me" implies that others may not understand her journey, but she asserts her own agency and autonomy in carving out her own path.
