I first heard this song in a dream in 2004. In the dream, I was watching a commercial for fabric softener or color-safe bleach or something, which featured a woman prancing across a black-and-white countryside that burst into color in her wake. It was supposed to represent how bright the colors of your clothes would get if you used their product. And this tune, a fake Irish folk ballad, was playing in the background.
But after that first impression wore off, this song started to evolve into something more.
By the way, the "how brief was the garland" line was inspired by the last line of A.E. Houseman's "To an Athlete Dying Young."
