It was many and many year ago in a kingdom by the sea. That a maiden there lived by whom you may know By the name of Annabel Lee.
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.
A wind blew out of a cloud by night chilling my Annabel Lee; So that her highborn kinsman came and bore her away from me.
The wind came out of a cloud, chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
Our love was stronger by far than the love and the angels in Heaven above, nor the demons down under the sea can every dissever my soul from the soul of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
The stars never rise but I see the bright eyes of the beautiful Annabel Lee. And so all the nighttide, I lie down by the side of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride, in her sepulcher there by the sea, in her tomb by the side of the sea.
