Lyrics

Hunting for the Sun
Words and music by Fitz

I just keep hunting for the sun
Even when the darkness has all but won
I just keep hunting for the sun

I just keep searching for your smile
Even when it’s vanished for a long long while
I just keep searching for your smile

THUNDER COMES BUT WE STAND STRONG
RAINY DAYS CAN ONLY LAST SO LONG
I LIFT BINOCULARS TO MY EYES
AND KEEP SCANNING FOR SUNNY SKIES

I just keep hunting for the sun
Even when the darkness has all but won
I just keep hunting for the sun

Some day I’m gonna track it down
Some day I’ll find it and you’ll be around
Smilin’ with the sunshine for a crown
Smilin’ with the sunshine…

Notes

I remember getting off the phone with a friend who was feeling down and having the title for this song come to me. She’d commented how I always looked on the positive side of life and I was wondering if that was a good thing or not…

The “old west” piano was made with Pianoteq D4 and I was surprised how well it blended with the synths. Blended yet added some earthy contrast. I’ll have to use that trick in the future. Marimba was AAS Chromaphone, Jupiter 8 for bass and horns, Camel Audio’s Alchemy for the strings, and ARP 2600 for sea and bird noises.
