Annabel Lee?

Dream!Icarus (that same one sometimes called the Athenian) is apparently a singer/songwriter. I woke up this morning with just one fragmentary couplet remaining from the song he was singing:
My angel lives down by the sea
Come back, my angel, to me.

It reminds me of the old song, "My bonnie lies over the ocean, my bonnie lies over the sea. My bonnie lies over the ocean, oh bring back my bonnie to me!"

As a child, I couldn't understand what a bonnie was, then in later life I read that anything "bonny" is pretty in Scotch. Hence, bring back my pretty to me. Wow - now it sounds like the Wicked Witch of the West!

Mildly derivative.
