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
it's all 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
