It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea. 

Edgar Allan Poe 

 

I separated my heart from my head
To feel out what’s inside
I don’t like what I see, so I say good night

 Don’t wake me ’cause I’m dreaming in color
Black and white is not my friend
Candy coated figures hold me in my bed

I’ve never been so deep inside a shadow
I’ve never been so insecure of what I know

I’ve gotta figure it out, I need a story to tell
Where’s the feeling I long for?
I’ve gotta figure it out before I lose you, love

Big city streets are calling me loud
The busy keeps me high
Well, this quiet town is wearing me down tonight

I know that I should stay here for a while
Listen to the sound of my shaky heart
Looking for gold in the ground

I’ve never been so deep inside a shadow
I’ve never been so insecure of what I know
I’ve gotta figure it out, I need a story to tell
Where’s the feeling I long for?
I’ve gotta figure it out before I lose you
Before I lose you, love

It’s not okay to make you wait
To make you wonder why I
Can’t hold you close or give you hope
That this will be all right, I wanna make it right

I’ve gotta figure this out, I need a story to tell
Where’s the feeling I long for?
I’ve gotta figure it out
I’ve gotta figure this out, I need a story to tell
Where’s the feeling I long for?
I’ve gotta figure it out before I lose you
Before I lose you, before I lose you, love
