The Last September


I still remember
That last September
Before the wind picked up a bite
On that cold October’s night
We’d sit around the fire’s glow
Still so much you didn’t know
About tragedy yet to come
Oh, Lily, James, you were so young

But I still remember
That last September
With you

I still hold in the back of my mind
Those bittersweet, warm, fragile times
When Lily and James were still there
And nothing bad, it seemed, would dare
To attempt to descend down
On the house where the Potters could be found
Oh, my dearest friends
The beginning of the end

That last September
That I remember
With you

James would laugh, Lily would smile
And we’d be safe for a little while
No owls of distress flew through the skies
And Lily and James were still alive
And for a moment everything was okay
And the war seemed so very far away
But now it’s only me and your son
And the victory is far from won

But I still remember
That last September
With you

That last September
With you

That last September
With you
