"Ghost Song" as written by and Patrick Wolf....
While I'm asleep
My spirit crawls out
Of my belly button
And goes down to the sea

To gather the wind
The wires and the shore
To wander the hills
Like a day gone before

When beauty was in season
Oh! Beauty in season!
Endangered by reason
Great love with no law

Today I woke
And my spirit was gone
Still on the shore
Where he truly belongs

So I call
For him
Across
The wind
And
Rain

To come and bring beauty
Back in season
Oh! Beauty in season!
I'm in danger of reason
Losing love to this law

To this

    General Comment"It was written half asleep. Just imagine those days sometimes when you wake up in the morning and you feel dreadful. I was wondering why some days you wake up with a feel like that and sometimes you wake up and you are feeling fantastic. I had this idea that your spirit goes out of your body and goes off and dreams for you and sends back a dream in the morning. And maybe sometimes the spirit is still out there dreaming and you wake up and you're almost soulless and you live a soulless day. And when you fall asleep again you have your spirit back and you wake up recharged."
