I have given you a name
One that shows you can always change
No matter the way or mistake you've made
And sometimes consequences define your life with hardship
Will goodness be the banner you raise
Cuz with his last breath, Severus said, "Take it, take it!"

Living in disguise - a true wizard on the inside
Not afraid of what he had to do, he was the bravest man I ever knew...

(spoken) "Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin, and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew."

A true wizard on the inside, on the inside
The bravest man I ever knew
A true wizard on the inside, on the inside

All these things that tie us close
To what matters most
We cannot let go
And sometimes consequences define your life with hardship
Will goodness be the banner you raise
Cuz with his last breath, Severus said, "Take it, take it!"

Living in disguise - a true wizard on the inside
Not afraid of what he had to do, he was the bravest man I ever knew...

(spoken) "Long ago I had a teacher, a sallow-skinned Slytherin with long black hair. I hated him and he seemed to hate me too. Though I branded him a coward, he was, in fact, the bravest man I ever knew.

A true wizard on the inside (the bravest man I ever knew)
On the inside
The bravest man I ever knew
A true wizard on the inside, on the inside
The bravest man I ever knew

Always, always... there's so much in one word
Always, always...

    General CommentThat "Always" part at the end just shatters my heart. I write "Always," at the top of all my papers. It just means so much. When Severus says it, he isn't just admitting to loving Lily, he's saying that he always will love her, always has, and he shows us a softer, more beautiful side. The best part, though, is that his eyes are filled with tears when he says it. Oh, Snape, if only you had lived! If only I had been Lily!


    P.S. They better not jack up the Always art in the HP7 Part 2 movie, or I will personally kick the producer's scrawny little hiney!
