The Raven

c1996 by Michael Jerling

From the album In Another Life



Once again it is so cold
Once again it is so cold
In the gutter name unknown
Dressed in someone else's clothes
Crying for his lost Lenore
On the streets of Baltimore

Mother dear, please don't go
Mother dear, please don't go
The furtive cough, the spot of blood
The fever, then the final flood
My dark angels leave me here
In my madness, in my fear

Marry me, my precious child
Marry me, my precious child
Come away and live with me
In a kingdom by the sea
We will find the perfect love
The raven and the dove

On her grave I sleep in the snow
On her grave I sleep in the snow
There was no shelter from the storm
My scribbling could not keep her warm
The furtive cough, the spot of blood
The fever, then the final flood

Once again it is so cold
Once again it is so cold
With the tolling of the bells
Freedom from this earthly hell
Longing for his lost Lenore
Quoth the raven: Nevermore
Nevermore
