lyrics

Songs for the skin were the stories I told
But all that I knew was the touch of dry bone
And they wildflower smelled so sweet and unchained
The scent that revived me is now stale on my brain

I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
All that's disenchanted is now laid down to rest
Oh I wish you the best
You put the down in my vest
And then you scattered my nest all over the ground
Oh I'll miss you Miss Enchantress

And the languid days they never did leave
Even when I started to float off, I clung to your sleeves
And I stuck with this illness, I cradled the blues
And I welcomed the stillness, made the best of bad news

I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
All that's disenchanted is now laid down to rest
Oh I wish you the best
You put the down in my vest
And then you scattered my nest all over the ground
Oh I'll miss you Miss Enchantress

And I tasted her wisdom, it made me naive
Drowning in the rhythm of the ghosts I conceived
And all of their pointless stories made sense
And I tried to carry them over, now I'm stuck on the fence

I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
All that's disenchanted is now laid down to rest
Oh I wish you the best
You put the down in my vest
And then you scattered my nest all over the ground
Oh I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
