about

With apologies to Edgar Allan Poe.

lyrics

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 Li;

And she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

Annabel Li

To love and be loved by me.

You may know
Annabel Li

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 Li

[Chorus]
For the moon never beams
without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Li

And the stars never rise
but I see the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Li


And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,

A wind blew out of a cloud,
chilling my beautiful Annabel Li

Chilling and killing
my Annabel Li

Annabel Li

In this kingdom by the sea.
The beautiful Annabel Li

In this kingdom by the sea.
Chilling and killing
my Annabel Li

[Chorus]
For the moon never beams
without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Li

And the stars never rise
but I see the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Li

For the moon never beams
but I see the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Li


In her sepulchre there by the sea
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
We loved with a love
that was more than love
I and my Annabel Li

And neither the angels in Heaven above
Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul
from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Li

We loved with a love
that was more than love
I and my Annabel Li

about

The Brothers Burn Austin

By sheerest accident, the producer discovered the brothers at the grocery store in the wee hours of the morning, helping themselves to the grapes in the produce section. Hopefully you can look past the court's commitment judgment and the obsessive concern about "Mother", and experience the brother's music for what it is. ... more
