Lyrics

Sweet ghost of light
When you appear
You fall around me
Everywhere
I see your face
As you pass by
As fragile as
A dragonfly
You jab me in
The kidneys like
A compass or
An iron spike
But I can't help
Believing you
Because I love
The things you do

Sweet ghost of light
I've lived too long
I'd die for you
Inside this song
The sweetest death
That I can dream
Like petals flowing
Down a stream
That turn to blood
As they dissolve
And it's around
You I revolve

Sweet ghost of light
You'll never fade
By nothing else
Are you betrayed
You fill me 'til
I'm empty and
You empty me
Like grains of sand
I love you more
Than anyone
Beneath the moon
Beneath the sun
