"Annabelle" as written by and Sam Soto Josiah Steinbrick....



Annabelle, Annabelle
Where'd you run off to?
Annabelle, oh Annabelle
I'm lost without you

I'm in hell, I'm in hell
Down here waiting
Annabelle, wish you could tell what I've been contemplating

Leave it to the angels of the lies
To bring you back to me
Sing to me, tonight

Annabelle, Annabelle
Where've you been hiding?
Annabelle, sweet Annabelle
Since you stopped dying

I'm in hell, oh I'm in hell
Alone and hated
Annabelle, wish you could tell things got too complicated

Leave it to the angels of the lies
To bring you back to me
To sing to me, tonight

Everything's been slowly broken down
Into pieces, into nothing
Now with you no longer dancing
Leaving me to second guessing
Why you left and where you're going
Maybe its best left alone
Like you

Leave it to the angels of the lies
To bring you back to me
To sing to me, tonight

Everything's been slowly broken down
Into pieces, into nothing
Now with you no longer dancing
Leaving me to second guessing
Why you left and where you're going
Maybe its best left alone
Like you

Alone like you [x3]
Alone

    General CommentOne of the best on the album.
    However, does anyone else think that the guitar riff sounds *at least* inspired by Bob Mould's (Husker Du) "Dreaming I am?" This song is featured on NPR's Shadow Classics HERE: npr.org/templates/story/…
    if you would like to decide for yourself. Obviously the tempos are different but the main riff sounds very close--perhaps not scandalously close.

    General CommentI fucking love this heartbreak song. I believe Skiba is talking about Annabelle, his ex-girlfriend, and how he wants them to get back together so much. But during his mourning process, he thinks about the relationship as a whole with the good and the bad and realizes that she's not worth gettting back with. She's better off left alone, or least still feeling "alone" with someone else. I love how some of Skiba's loveworn songs end with him saying "Fuck it." Lol.

    General CommentMy name is AnnaBelle, and I gotta say, I like Hail Social's 'Annabelle' better than this one. This is kind of droning and emo. :P
