I sat and I fretted
by candle light, by moonlight, by starlight
and even because I was truly desperate
I sat and fretted by sunlight too.
Finally In desperation I clasped my hands to my chest and
I prayed as hard as I could-
was there a potion, a charm, a string of words
a howl of consonant and vowels
that would wrap muscle around bone and skin to
fingers, a face and toes?
Or would I have to scoop up these sad parts
from the Earth below my feet
and is this all I would have
for my first All Hallows Eve treat?

This song has a spooky sounding vibe:
A song about darkness, well the color black:
And of course this song is about an Evil woman and she may have been evil to only one man but let’s not get nitpicky:
Keep it simple- keep it spooky- keep it in a dark basement with locks on the door that can only be opened with a skeleton key.
