16 Years Ago Lyrics

I’m standing in this space
A tired, lonely place
So worn and old with distant memories
A poster on the wall
Some paper on the floor
A letter written 16 years ago

And for this moment
I can still hear you
I see your smile and your dark red hair
I can see you there
And for the first time in my life
I know who you really are
And it feels like

(Chorus)
You are here now
You are here now
You are here right now
You are here now

I can’t find the last page
Taken from here by Snape
And bearing your signature
And your lasting love
There’s no point lingering
On things that might have been
But I swear I’ll still be happy in the end

And for this moment
I can still hear you
Your laughter echoes in my mind
But I’ve said goodbye
I’ll carry on and I won’t despair
‘Cause in my heart I know you’ll be there

(Chorus x2)

All in this letter
This letter you wrote to him
There on the paper
Your thoughts down in handwriting
Lily, your voice echoes back in my ear
Your face in my mind it’s like you’re really here
I first saw your face in the Mirror of Erised
Now reading this it feels like you were never dead
Once you were real and you’re not just a dream
Not a memory in my head
Now you are here with me

In a letter written 16 years ago.
