LILY DIED FOR LOVE (2020)

LILY DIED FOR LOVE

 

Lily died for love

She put her son above herself

And oh, what a spell

What a spell

 

Lily died for love 

But she smiles through

The eyes of her child

It runs in the blood

Dying doesn’t let the love

Let up

 

Lily died for love

She put her son above herself

And oh, what a spell

What a spell

 

Running from the ones who wouldn’t lose

From words unheard he did choose

Born to those who have thrice defied

Born as the seventh month dies

 

Lily died for love

She put her son above herself

And oh, what a spell

What a spell

PRIVET DRIVE

 

Streetlights go out

Hearts full of doubt 

For here is a house

With no magic about

 

And oh, what pretty little houses

All the flowers in their rows

What would the people in the town say

If anyone was any other way

 

Given a bed 

Boot heels overhead

Underfed

Imagination unsaid

 

And oh, what pretty little houses

All the flowers in their rows

What would the people in the town say

If anyone was any other way

THE TRUTH

 

I’ll give you the truth today

Lily you are just like me

I’ve seen the magic of your play

I’ll give you the truth today

 

You and I are just the same

It matters not from where you came

I’ve waited for so long to say

I’ll give you the truth today

FLIGHT

 

I’ve been running all my days

Chased and pushed around

But when I took to the sky

I left that life on the ground

 

This was easy, this was wonderful

I was made for flight

 

Flowing wind around my frame

Blows these troubles away

What compares to cutting through the air

Or kicking against the clay

 

This was easy, this was wonderful

I was made for flight

SILVER LINING 

 

There’s a place for me

There’s a place for you

On the other side of

The things we’re going through

 

I always knew you wouldn’t rest easy

But to fight him you gotta leave me

 

There’s a place for me

There’s a place for you

On the other side of

The things we’re going through

 

While you’re gone defeating the darkness

Think of me wherever your heart is

 

I found the silver lining

And I smiled but my eyes were shining

 

There’s a place for me

There’s a place for you

On the other side of

The things we’re going through

DRACO

 

I was going down the train track

I was going home

Since then I’ve never looked back

I was going home

 

A poor boy sat beside me

And we became friends

Never had someone to share with

No money to spend

 

Then somebody said 

You’re choosing the losing side

He said it with pride

But it was a lie

 

Draco some day you’ll know

What the world you wanted looks like

And your shadow might just want to

Run to the light

 

And if somebody says 

You’re choosing the losing side

Know the river that divides 

Is not that wide

COURAGE DEEP DOWN

 

Could have been the one

Chosen to bring him down

It just took a little while

To bring out the courage deep down

 

Like a seed in the deepest
Part of your heart

Watered by rage at 

The ones who tore your family apart

 

Then one day with a sword in your hand

You look ‘round

And you know you’re holding in your hand

The courage deep down

 

Could have been the one

Chosen to bring him down

It just took a little while

To bring out the courage deep down

WHAT IS RIGHT, WHAT IS EASY

 

What’s right and what is easy

Divides us completely

What’s right and what is easy

Divides us completely

 

Dark times lie ahead of us

And it’s going to beg of us

That the light you have 

You don’t lose

 

And if you stray across the path of it

Remember what happened to

A good man, you must choose

 

What’s right and what is easy

Divides us completely

What’s right and what is easy

Divides us completely

MAGIC AT ITS DEEPEST

 

All the elements we persuade

And all the incantations 

All the potions ever made

And all the divinations

 

They shine for us to see and hear

But our choices are a magic just as real

 

This is magic at its deepest

This is magic at its deepest

 

All the bones and things we mend

And all the conjurations

All the air and light we bend

And all the wild sensations

 

They shine for us to see and feel

But our choices are a magic just as real

 

This is magic at its deepest

This is magic at its deepest

FOUNTAIN OF BRETHREN

 

I wanna take down the ministry of magic

The pureblood-loving 

Power-hungry bureaucratics

The Fountain of Brethren told a lie

 

I get the Prophet every day at half-past nine

If you can’t see the lies then you must be blind

Seems like the paper’s in the pocket of a cursed few

Just because the government says it 

Doesn’t make it true

 

You wanna run a school like a government camp

Teaching that some people aren’t worth a damn

Fearing those people you oppress like despots do

One of these days you gonna see what they can do

 

It doesn’t matter much to who you were born

What matters is who you become

Who’s to hold magic ain’t for you to decide

All you want it power and for that 

You need to divide
