Out of danger

(lyrics by James Fenton/Out of danger)
Learn as trees must learn to fall
Out of danger, out of love
Out of danger from the heart
Falling, falling, falling…
…out of love

What belongs to frost and thaw
Sullen winter will not harm
What belongs to earth and death
Is out of danger from the sun

I was cruel, I was wrong
Hard to say, hard to know
You don’t belong to me
You are out of danger now…

Heart be kind and sign the release
As the trees their loss approve
Out of danger from the wind
Falling, falling, falling…
…out of love

Jealous passion, cruel need
Betray the heart they feed upon
What belongs to wind and rain
Is out of danger from the storm
