Severus Snape, do you know just how close you came
To being named as Voldemort’s right-hand man?
And though you spent all summer time just gazing into those green eyes
She helps you see,
And think of where you’d be without her there by your side.
She keeps part of you alive.
And though you’ve got the makings of a real dark wizard,
Yeah, you know your heart will save you
You just know your heart will save you.
You’ve got the makings of a real dark wizard,
But the love that you have found will protect you
Yeah, it will save you now.
When all you had were friends who didn’t understand
You always knew that Lily cared no matter what.
And, with a word, that changed,
And though you kept your faith in her, she left you.
And now she’s gone
Oh, why did it go wrong?
You didn’t take the chance to change,
But you’ve learned from your mistakes.
She was so different,
Like some kind of beautiful anomaly.
She made you realise
That there’s a different way for things to be.
She’ll save you.
She’ll save you now.
