Darlin' Do Not Fear Lyrics

by 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 dont 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 dont 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 street lamp like an orphan with a halo
Darlin do not fear what you dont really know

'Cuz it wont last, worriesll pass
All your troubles, they dont stand a chance
And sometimes it takes more than a lifetime to know
Darlin do not fear what you dont 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 dont really know

If you have a broken heart or a battered soul
Find something to hold onto until they go
To help you through the hard nights like a flask filled with hope
Darlin do not fear what you dont really know

'Cuz it wont last, your worriesll pass
All your troubles, they dont stand a chance
And it always hurts the worst when its the ones we love the most
Darlin do not fear what you dont really know

Sometimes your path is marked in the sky
Sometimes it falls too thin in between the lines
Sometimes all that you can do is say 'No'
Darlin do not fear what you dont 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 dont really know
I said, darlin do not fear what you dont really know
We said, darlin do not fear
