halloween

enchanting ghost by sufjan stevens:
tell me what you saw in me
& i'll try to replicate it with a scene
if it troubles you to breathe
wait a moment, i could change the scenery
don't carry on carrying efforts, oh no
somewhere there's a room for each of us to grow
& if it pleases you to leave me, just go
stopping you would stifle your enchanting ghost
it's only that i meant to bring
love & liveliness to your breast on the scene
did you cut your hands on me?
are my edges sharp? am i a pest to feed?
don't carry on carrying regrets, oh no
somewhere there's a room for us to speak alone
& if it grieves you to stay here, just go
for i have no spell on you, it's all a ghost
i still have the things you gave me
4 anointing oils, the paper weight you made
for sure i haven't carried them
or buried them in the name of your ghost,
my friend
don't carry on carrying efforts
don't go! no..
stay with me until i sleep within your host
or if it pleases you to leave me, just go
stopping you would stifle your enchanting ghost..
