Song Lyric Sunday (7/22/18) – Speak

Helen’s prompt for this week’s Song lyric Sunday is the word speak. Deviating in tense only, I am presenting a very unknown song from a band that might not be as well known. The Alan Parson’s Project had a few hits, but most do not know they did an album of songs called Tales of Mystery and Imagination. For this week’s promp, I am presenting you the song titled The Raven.

 

The clock struck midnight
And through my sleeping
I heard a tapping at my door
I looked but nothing
Lay in the darkness
And so I turned inside once more

To my amazement
There stood a raven
Whose shadow hung above my door
Then through the silence
It spoke the one word
That I shall hear for evermore

Nevermore
Thus quoth the raven, nevermore

And still the raven remains in my room
No matter how much I implore
No words can soothe him
No prayer remove him
And I must hear for evermore

Quoth the raven, nevermore
Thus quoth the raven, nevermore

Quoth the raven, nevermore
Thus quoth the raven, nevermore

Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore, never
Nevermore, nevermore, never
Nevermore, nevermore, never
Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore, never
Nevermore, nevermore, never
Nevermore, nevermore, never

      1. Yep. On the iPod all the time. I Robot is the album I enjoyed most.

        If I had a mind to
        I wouldn’t want to think like you
        And if I had time to
        I wouldn’t want to talk to you

        I’ll check it out again. Heard them all years ago but held on the I Robot
