8. Hunker Down (4:17)
Words and music by Loretta Hagen

Can't you hear me, I’m talking to you
Can't you see me standing in your view
It seems as if you stare through me
At some far away moon

That old storm will pound your door
And hover over
Let my arms be where you run for cover
And hunker down

When the Summer
Moves on like water
Through a steady rushing stream
Into Autumn
When winds blow colder
You start falling with the leaves

When low clouds gather round
And you're under the thunder
Let my eyes be a quiet shelter
And hunker down

When those storms are at your door
And they hover over
Let my heart be a warm bunker
And hunker down

Can’t you hear me, I’m talking to you
Can’t you see me standing in your view
It seems as if you just ignore me
I’ll keep trying to get through
