Marissa Nadler - Annabelle Lee

rate me

(words by Edgar Allan Poe)

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 Annabelle 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 Annabelle 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 Annabelle Lee

So that her highborn kinsman came

And bore her away from me

To shut her up in a sepulcher

In this kingdom by the sea

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 Annabelle Lee
