(Inspired by The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe)

Gently Gently I came rapping
Like the bird whose beak came tapping
Wanted mine and wanted yours
Both souls I seek to keep
Wondering Wondering If I’m intruding
Fear you old friend fear you so much
Thinking thinking if I should
Call upon you tonight
When I see you laughing with them
Have my secrets become jokes
When I see you lunching with them
Is my flesh the meat they poke?
Wanting Wanting to know if
You are my friend just so if
When my flesh is dead and rotting
You would help them end their plotting
Where Where where were you when I cried
Where Where Where were you when I died
Did you fight
Did you fight
Where where where were you
When I screamed my last
Where where where were you
I find you nesting at my chamber door
Along with them
Along with them.
Never nevermore
I’m your lost Lenore
I’m who you called a whore
When they came for me
Never nevermore
I’m your lost Lenore
A ghostly imprint upon your mind I bore
Gently Gently I came rapping
Wondering why you stand there gaping
When I stand here still alive
A thousand knives upon my back
Yes there are still some with your name
The name of you whom I still blame
Wondering wondering why you are
Shivering your face so white
Did you think that I should visit
Risen from the grave of lies
Am I just a ghost of conscience
That’s come haunting you tonight?
Where Where where were you when I cried
Where Where Where were you when I died
Did you fight
Did you fight
Where where where were you
When I screamed my last
Where where where were you
I find you nesting at my chamber door
Along with them
Along with them.
Gently gently I came rapping
Not in the shape you have me come in
Am I just an imagination
Is there still some salvation
See you backing backing slowly
The smile you wear in life just fading
I’m wondering why you clutch your left
Is that heart of yours still beating
Tis just a visit my old friend
U Wonder why I fear no more
Do I exist do I not
Am I a haunting of your mind
Where Where where were you when I cried
Where Where Where were you when I died
Did you fight
Did you fight
Where where where were you
When I screamed my last
Where where where were you
I find you nesting at my chamber door
Along with them
Along with them.
Never nevermore
I’m your lost Lenore
I’m who you called a whore
When they came for me
Never nevermore
I’m your lost Lenore
A ghostly imprint upon your mind I bore
So
Gently gently I came rapping
Tapping at your chamber door
Am I in your troubled mind
Ever ever more?
