Annabel Lee Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 Annabel Lee
So that her high-born kinsmen came and bore her away from me
To shut her up in a sepulcher in this kingdom by the sea
And 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 my Annabel Lee
That the wind came out of the cloud by night 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 the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee
And 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 life and my bride
In the sepulcher there by the sea in her tomb by the sounding sea
