I've heard the opening and closing tracks of this album as songs a father sings to his children. "Wildflowers" is the hopes he has for his daughter to experience "somewhere all bright and new" while still staying close enough for him to delight in her discoveries. In "Wake Up Time," he's coaching his son into adulthood. The "poor boy a long way from home" is making his own decisions and having to live with the consequences. They're lovely and generous and capture the sweet sorrow parents have to endure in order to let their children go into their own lives.

SInce Wildflowers came out when I was 13 its not a far stretch to say You Don't Know How It Feels pretty much sums up what every 13 y.o. is feeling;) As I've "grown up" a little since then it always reminds me to keep an open mind about other people, you don't know how it feels to be me goes both ways. peace

Tom, This album has a lot of significance for me in that the first concert I saw of yours and the HeartBreaker's was the Wildflowers Tour at the Gorge in WA. It is my favorite album that you have done, and I still have the Wildflowers t-shirt that I bought which is the same graphics and colors as the album. The little Honey Bee on the back is so cool. My favorite song on the album is "Wake up Time". Its hard to narrow ot down to just one, but I always come back to this inspiring little song that talks about being patient, "He'll be fine, he just needs some time", and "It's wake up time,.... its time to rise.........and shine. I can't tell you how that makes me feel as I had put so much pressure on myself in life, but that song reminded me to relax, be patient and follow my dreams. What great, inspiring lyrics, Tom. Thanks so much for all your great songs, and I look forward to many more. Don't ever stop shining. Lars from Montana

I don’t have “a Favorite” song from this or any other album as each song stirs up different feelings & emotions for me on a personal level But that’s the beauty of Music; with that said “time to move on” helped me to move on after a bad break up, where as songs like “You wreck me” & “Crawling back to you” put a lot in perspective for me subject to relationships and self Value. Others like “Honey Bee” & “it’s good to be King” Have got to be the most fun songs to Jam, all these songs are so PURE (which is hard to find in music today) Julien Roy

It would have to be 'You Wreck Me'. Apart from the fact it's a kick Ass song i just love the lines 'Rescue me, Should I go down. If I stay too long in trouble town' I think everybodys been in 'trouble town' at least once in their life so the song speaks so well to us all.

There are a lot of great tunes on Wildflowers, and one of the things I really like about the album is that there is a great variety in the style of the tunes. To answer the fave question, I guess I have to think about which one I'd be most likely to pick for a quick pick me up - and that would be "You Wreck Me" - such a great tune, simple powerful rock and roll with lyrics that for me speak to a simpler time. It doesn't get much better than that - I just hope it is on the setlist in St. John's!!

"Don't Fade on Me" gave me more love to give, to let go, and the forgiveness for those you deeply love more than they are capable of loving you back or ultimately themselves. p.s. I am truly grateful for all of the work and the complex nature of songs on this album that reminds me that we are all just a bunch of "Wildflowers." :)

Toughest question EVER!! I feel Wildflowers is Tom's Magnum Opus. So hard to pick one from so many great songs! You Don't Know How it Feels was the coolest song to hit the radio since Mary Jane's Last Dance! I was living the words to To Find a Friend at the time. Honey Bee was one of the rockin'est songs I ever heard from Tom and Cabin Down Below and House in the Woods were right there with it! I was living this album when it came out. It brings back strong memories Same with Echo. If I have to pick one, I'll go with Cabin Down Below. Why? cus at it's heart, it's a love song and I love to play it myself. AND IT ROCKS!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9Hba2sS04I and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhBthdaeb3I Thanks for the opportunity!!

I can't say enough about the harmonica. If you didn't like Harmonicas before,well after you hear it in this tune you can feel everything it's meant to do. The words to the song is enough to make me go to Amsterdam just to hear him sing that song. I am a black woman and plan to see Tom somewhere out of this country. I want to see him in Amsterdam. It is the most appropiate place to see him and to hear 'you don't know how it feels'. I would like to show people how an empty nester is suppose to live...Tom wrecks me!

Until recently, I would have said "Crawling Back To You", because of the 3rd verse. I always found the lyric and Tom's delivery so moving, especially the line "Most things I worry about never happen anyway". But "Wildflowers" has become more special to me recently. I always thought Tom wrote this song to his daughter, since although it is very affectionate, it has the line "go find a lover". You wouldn't say that to your own partner, but maybe to your maturing daughter. And I remember telling this to my daughter some time ago. Now my daughter is getting married, and she recently came to me and told me that when we have our first dance at her wedding, she wants us to dance to "Wildflowers", because of the feeling communicated by Tom in his song. Nothing could be more moving to me than that. jkelley079

I had a very rough stretch of family tradgedies a few months after the release of the Wildflowers album. It included losing my brother to alcoholism before his 45th birthday, and my mom passing away from pancreatic cancer. Obviously, a challenging time for anyone, particularly my brother and mom. While I ultimately lost both of them to these terrible diseases there was clearly "A time to move on" while honoring their memory. The words and music reminded me there would be a better tomorrow and my family would not me to wallow in despair over there deaths. I cried on airplanes while playing the song over & over to keep my spirits up while visiting my mom in the hospital and ultimately hospice. The song still resonates with me during any challenging time in my life.
