Love Will Prevail: Songs from ‘The Final Battle’ (5 July 2010)

[Severus:]
I see you there
Wind blows your hair
As you swing
And I’m ten years old
And you’re beautiful
As you swing

[Lily:]
You tell me I’m a witch
And I fly off the swing
My sister’s scared
But I am prepared [Severus:] (prepared)
[Both:] To try to make magic with you

My magical childhood friend
Somebody that I can depend on to help me
Depend on to hold me and I
Think I would die without you

[Severus:]
I see you there
Green eyes, auburn hair
At Hogwarts
I’m fifteen years old
And you’re beautiful
At Hogwarts

[Lily:]
Nobody likes you
But I will stay true
At Hogwarts
James taunts and jeers
But I keep you near
And try to make magic with you

[Both:]
My magical childhood friend
Somebody that I can depend on to help me
Depend on to hold me and I
[Severus:] Think I would die without you

I’m sorry!
[Lily:] Save your breath.
[Severus:] I didn’t meant to call you [Both:] Mudblood
[Lily:] You didn’t mean to call me Mudblood
[Severus:] It just sort of [Lily:] slipped out
Didn’t it? Well, Severus, get out!
[Severus:] You don’t mean that!
[Lily:] Don’t I?
I’ve made excuses for you for years
But now I know you’ve made your choice
And you have chosen evil
[spoken:] You just can’t wait to join You-Know-Who, can you?

[Severus:]
I’m all alone
Cannot atone
For all I’ve done
So I serve You-Know-Who
Evil through and through
Cannot be undone

I’m twenty years old
And you’re beautiful
Though you’re not here
And this prophecy
Predicts that he
Will kill you, James and Harry

He couldn’t keep you safe, though, Dumbledore
‘Couldn’t keep you safe, so you were killed
And I vowed I’d keep your son from harm
Working as a spy for Dumbledore
Working as a spy for sixteen years
Wishing I’d died, then, in your stead

And then, one day, I finally learned the truth
Everything I’d done for you, for Harry, had been done for naught

As hard I tried
Harry had to die
Always
And I’m thirty-eight years old
And you’re beautiful
Always
Always, oh

My magical childhood friend
Somebody that she could depend on to help her
Depend on to hold her and I
Know I will die without her

[Lily:] You did your best, Severus
[Severus:] And I will love you
[Lily:] And I forgive you, Severus
[Both:] Always
