lyrics

Mayday
lyrics and melody by Catherine Faber, 2011

A Fetch, she wears, through sun and storm,
Mirror of your face and form,
But though your death she's bound to bring,
You can get used to anything--
You can get used to anything.

You're October, she is May;
She is something more than fae,
You are just a Changeling;
You can get used to anything--
You can get used to anything.

May Day dusk she wakes you all,
To drag you to the Beltane Ball,
But while the coffee she will bring,
You can get used to anything--
You can get used to anything.

She can mold to her commands,
Fresh-caught magic in her hands:
A little blood, a little sting...
You can get used to anything;
You can get used to anything.

May is dancing, stomp and whirl,
Courting with a Raven girl,
Back and forward, dip and swing;
You can get used to anything--
You can get used to anything.

Your death will be her end, so hey--
You need a roommate anyway
She does the dishes--that's the thing
You can get used to anything
You can get used to anything!
