the eclipse the raven lyrics – carpathian forest

[music by nordavind ’91]

once upon a midnight dreary. while i pondered, weak and weary
over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore-…
while i nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
as of some one, gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
’tis some visitor’ i muttered, tapping at my chamber door…
only this and nothing more…

[fretless b*ss solo]

ah, distinctly i remember it was in the bleak december,
and each seperate dying ember wrought it’s ghost upon the floor.
eagerly i wished the morrow… vainly i had sought to borrow
from my books surcease of sorrow… sorrow for the lost lenore-…
for the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name lenore-…
nameless here for evermore…
