Darlin’ Do Not Fear

Sometimes the perfect song just finds you.

When I arrived in my own 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 in these 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 mantle my heart was taken down
Scattered in a thousand little pieces on the ground
And out below the street lamp like an orphan with a halo
Darlin’ do not fear what you don’t really know

‘Cause it won’t last – the worries will 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

The confidence is full as your faith etched in stone
And 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 on to or to let go
To help you through the hard nights like a flask filled with hope
Darlin’ do not fear what you don’t really know

‘Cause it won’t last – your worries will 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 you’re forced to fit in between the lines
Sometimes all that you can do is say no
Darlin’ do not fear what you don’t really know

I said, when I arrived in my own 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…
