"Darlin' Do Not Fear" as written by and 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 street lamp like an orphan with a halo
Darlin? do not fear what you don't really know

'cause 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
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?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 that 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

    General CommentWeird, I'm not a Brett Dennen fan except this one song, and it has no comments?

    I think the meaning to this song is pretty straightforward: "'...it won't last, the worries will pass. All your troubles they don't stand a chance."

    Such a chill, happy song :)

    General CommentThis reminds me a lot of Bob Dylan's Shelter From the Storm: many verses, all ending in the same line and "hunted like a crocodile" / "hunted by the wolves" in the first verse.
