The Raven

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

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


Thus quote 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
