I can't help but blush when you're near me
But you just exclude me from your circle of three
I'm right in front of you, but you don't see
You treat me like I'm a Colin Creevey

I love you, but it seems you don't love me
My friends say you're so brave
And I know you will see that we were meant to be
When you miss me it'll be too late

I've swallowed so much love, my hair grows red
Come over to my house to see my brother instead
You didn't get my valentine, didn't know what it meant
Every page about you my diary's read

I love you, but it seems you don't love me
My friends say you're so brave
And I know you will see that we were meant to be
When you miss me it'll be too late

Even though you're the one I adore
Next year at Hogwarts you'll see I've transformed
I will hold my head up high, I'm a Gryffindor
And you won't need to save me anymore

I love you, but it seems you don't love me
My friends say you're so brave
And I know you will see that we were meant to be
When you miss me it'll be too late

    General CommentOMG!! I never thought Switchblade Kittens would make such a kewl song!!! Harry Potter is so very good movie/book wise. I tought they just called this song "ode to harry potter" just because, but then I started hearing "Gryffindor" and "Colin Creevey" and I was seriously shocked!

    General CommentAlthough I have never seen or read "Harry Potter" I real like this song...

    "Drama" would always bring the Harry Potter books on tour and read them aloud to the band. The band would complain, but after a while they would ask for her to read it to them.

    This is their "homage" to Harry Potter

    General Commentgranted, i do like harry potter, but, god this bitch is retarded, this song is horrible. but as the meaning goes, it's obviously about Ginny Weasley's love over Harry Potter.

    General CommentOK, so this song is semi-lame, but the lyrics are great. Harry Potter really really rocks my socks, and i love Ginny, and this is damn great. It's totally about Ginny and her crush in the first two books (duh), and it just makes me laugh.

    General CommentI love this song. I was singing it with my friend very loudly, walking down a street, and sevral people asked if we were drunk...
    Still a fabulous song.
    One of Drama's favorite Harry Potter character is Ginny Weasley, and she didn't think Ginny was getting a 'fair shake'.

    General CommentThis song is about Ginny Weasley and her obsession (pre-OOtP) with Harry. Harry does not reciprocate, and Ginny is hurt. The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory, now that you all know the context. Oh, and Colin Creevey is a klutzy-geeky freak, so yeah.

    General CommentAnd now, with HBP in canon, this song is disproven, as Harry -does- notice Ginny and -does- reciprocate! =)
