Darlin' Do Not Fear - Brett Dennen

When I arrived in my old set of clothes
I was half a world away from my home
and I was hunted by the wolves
and I was heckled by the crows
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

Alongside my innocence I laid in bed awake
conflicted and in chains with the impetus of age
but like a phantom she crept across the floor and out the window
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

From its place on the mantel my heart was taken down
scattered in a thousand little pieces on the ground
and I below the streetlamp like an orphan with a halo
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

cuz it won't last
worries?ll pass
all your troubles they don't stand a chance
and sometimes it takes more than a lifetime to know
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

Your confidences fall as your faith etched in stone
neither could comfort you from the wild unknown
so bury your burning hatred like a hatchet in the snow
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

If you have a broken heart or a battered soul
find something to hold onto until they go
From http://6lyrics.com
to help you through the hard nights
like a flask filled with hope
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

cuz it won't last
your worries?ll pass
all your troubles they don't stand a chance
and it always hurts the worst when it's the ones we love the most
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

sometimes your path is marked in the sky
sometimes it falls too thin in between the lines
sometimes all you can do is say no
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

I said when I arrived in my old set of clothes
I was half a world away from my home
and I was hunted by the wolves
and I was heckled by the crows
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know
I said Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

We said Darlin? do not fear?
