Hours Composed by Allison Crowe As performed by Allison Crowe and Band All this shifting of the hours Goes towards the light And the presence of this emptiness Gives up without a fight And the movement of the river Goes towards the sea And this absence of fulfillment Presents itself to me Chorus Don’t be scared It’s just the wind And the minutes Don’t know where to begin And we are getting older It’s not amounting to anything to anything, so just let go Oh, these pockets of the sky They’re turbulent at best We laugh when we are frightened Not at our own behest And the chattering of spirits Keeps me wide awake Now this isn’’t something stolen But it’s something I can’t take Chorus Don’t be scared It’s just the wind And the minutes Don’t know where to begin And we are getting older And it’s not amounting to anything to anything, so just let go Now the sound of screaming beauties They cry themselves to sleep Whatever I’ve held on to Is never nothing I can keep I lay my hands across the stone And hold back my breath I haven’t gone but I am fading Lord, I scare myself to death Don’t be scared It’s just the wind And the minutes Don’t know where to begin And we are getting older It’s not amounting - it all adds up And who is counting Don’t be scared It’s just the wind And the minutes Don’t know where to begin And we are getting older And it’s not amounting to anything to anything, so just let go Oh, the shifting of the hours Goes towards the light And the presence of this emptiness Gives up without a fight

Wildflowers Composed by Dolly Parton As performed by Allison Crowe and Band The hills were alive with wildflowers and I Was as wild, even wilder than they For at least I could run They just died in the sun And I refused to just wither in place Just a wild mountain rose Needing freedom to grow So I ran fearing not where I'd go When a flower grows wild It can always survive Wildflowers don't care where they grow And the flowers I knew In the fields where I grew Were content to be lost in the crowd They were commonly close And I had no room to grow And I wanted so much to branch out So I uprooted myself from my home ground and left Took my dreams and I took to the road When a flower grows wild It can always survive Wildflowers don't care where they grow I grew up fast and wild And it never felt right In a garden so different from me I just never belonged I just longed to be gone So the garden one day set me free I hitched a ride with the wind And since he was my friend I just let him decide where I'd go When a flower grows wild It can always survive Wildflowers don't care where they grow Just a wild rambling rose seeking mysteries untold No regret for the path that I chose When a flower grows wild It can always survive Wildflowers don't care where they grow When a flower grows wild It can always survive Wildflowers don't care where they grow
