"You have no control who lives, who dies, who tells your story."

When will it end, Annabel Lee?

You've built a fotress of bones,

brought men to their knees,

to gaze upon the curve of your smile

arduous hours spent admiring your beauty,

but young men grow old, after awhile.

You've never released your hold, Annabel Lee

and on nights when the wind blows

I feel your fingers tighten around me.

I feel it most underneath the skies,

with clouds drifting dreamily like

the look in those sea green eyes.

Oh, I've never forgotten my Annabel Lee

in times of torment and anguish 

her voice comes to set me free.

Alas, my dreams are far away 

as long as my love 

beckons me to stay;

her clear desire many miles from here, 

yet, my Annabel Lee,

is always near.
