Why Do We Hunger for Beauty
Music and Lyric by Jim Croegaert
Meadowgreen Music Company / Heart of the Matter Music (ASCAP)

Dark are the branches
Reaching for light
High is the path of
The hawk in its flight
Turning and gliding
Greeting the night
Why do we hunger
For beauty so right
Why do we hunger for beauty

Moon hanging lonely
Up there in the sky
Looking so holy
Like a host held up high
And off in the distance
There’s a train going by
Why does it move us
And cause us to sigh
Why do we hunger for beauty

Frost on the window
Is never the same
So many patterns
Fit in the frame
Captured in motion
Frozen in flame
And in the patterns
Is there a name
Why do we hunger for beauty

  1. Hey Steve, fun blog, lollapalooza-ing.
    Had a thought: when i read/listen to your beautiful melodies and compare how I feel when I hear old rock/pop songs in my Aquafit classes I feel a hollowness . i am fed with your music, Jay’s, Jon’, Carolyn’s, Jacob’s Corey Doak”s…
    I see you will be performing in Van in Sept. I mostly gratefully am on duty in Vernon for the birth of second grandboy, on or about the 19th so will miss you this time around, you will come to the Vernon area again, perhaps to Kelowna with some of your other Signpost bright lights?
    All the very best to you!
