Robyn Hitchcock – Sweet Ghost Of Light 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
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
