about

Break Your Fall [Nancy Kerr]
Like many ballads, this goodbye song, set on the first of May, alludes to the seasons and the cosmos as facets of love and loss. The “players in green” are some of the various noise-makers who chase the winter away with pipes and drums and more, in homemade Mayday rituals.

lyrics

You fell out of the blue
Happy was I to be falling for you
Arrange me a bed in your heart if there’s room
Strange to be sad with the May all in bloom

I fell deep as a dream
Love like a heron was there by the stream
Stalking my shadow and waiting for prey
While players in green chase the winter away

But the sun should know we’ve said goodbye
And go down on the roofs of my town
Breaking my heart hard once and for all
If you fall from your star I’ll be waiting to break your fall

Maybreak fabled and fine
Dust into ashes and water to wine
Priest like a magpie in love with the sun
Says how we are ended is how it’s begun

You rise fair in the East
Death like a raven is there at the feast
Ruffle his feathers and drive him to flight
Love me forever and shine till the night

When you set red in the West
Death like a lover is there at my breast
Drive away darkness and tempt in the day
As players in green chase the Winter away
