The Raven - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

Lead vocal: alan parsons, leonard whiting

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 darkness
It spoke that one word
That i shall hear forever more

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
