Baby! why are you doing this to me?
Sweetheart! Are those your eyes staring straight back at me?
Angel! I see your smile everywhere!
Darling! stop!

Night falls and I'm running in circles
I'm being chased by my imagination

Tell me I'm forgiven say you'll always be mine
Say that everything is over, tell me I'm fine...
No one deserves to live like this! (x2)

I touch your lips and stare in your eyes
You smile and it makes me fly
You are the reason my heart beats
Tonight it's just you and me...

Night as dark as my thoughts sets the scene for my return
Lightning nips at my heels as I race home
Wearily I stagger towards the song of her pale voice
Demons jeer my attempt to be free

Tell me I'm forgiven say you'll always be mine
Say that everything is over, tell me I'm fine...
No one deserves to live like this! (x2)

I touch your lips and stare in your eyes
You smile and it makes me fly
You are the reason my heart beats
Tonight it's just you and me...

Windows cast her gentle reflection
Her somber silhouette dances for me
Dear God, it's her!

Look at you, you miserable fool!
Get off your knees, your prayers fall upon deaf ears
Gods turned his back on you, heavens gates are shut
And now you're knocking on the devils door

I've been expecting you for some time, sir
Allow me to introduce myself
I'm the one who pulls on all the strings, son
You're lucky I don't kill you where you stand!

This can't be real
Tonight I raise my glass
There's nothing left
For I know it's time to move on
All hope has failed
My patience will not last
I've lost my soul
Tomorrow I will be gone

    "As the sun sets, the Artist cannot seem to escape his own imagination. Completely lost in self-indulgence, he begins to see Annabel's face everywhere. The visions of her usher his wandering, delusional thoughts back to the day when he first fell in love with her. He soon becomes obsessed with the fantasy that she could possibly still be alive. The Artist scrambles home in a hastened fury only to be stopped dead in his tracks at his front porch by a man who introduces himself as the Thespian--the man who killed Annabel."

    This is a tragic tale of loving and losing. A man loves this woman and the woman dies (more than likely murdered). He keeps his love with him as if he can't grasp the fact that she is gone forever. The devil (aka: the thespian) comes up and makes a deal with him to bring her back. She comes back to life and everything is fine until she decides to kill the man she once loved and she ends up with the 'thespian'.

    The readings of annabel lee by edgar allen poe is of a man who gives his heart to a women but she is then murdered. He does not know what to do with himself. He lies with the corpse cause he doesnt want to believe it. The sad and tragic death of annabel haunts him

    A man gave his heart to a woman. She was murdered & he's trying everything he can to get her back, but he's realizing that it's useless.
