Track Name: Going To Hogwarts
Pick up that letter now, open the page
The time has come for you to go,
Doesn’t matter about age.

‘Cause now we’re going..
Now we’re going!

I said we’re going to Hogwarts,
I’ve got my wand!
Going to Hogwarts,
Just hold on…

A new life awaits you when you step on the train,
Leave your cares behind you as
We drive through the rain.

‘Cause now we’re going..
Now we’re going!

I said we’re going to Hogwarts,
I’ve got my wand!
Going to Hogwarts,
Just hold on..

Gryffindor or Hufflepuff,
Slytherin or Ravenclaw,
Take the chance and I promise you,
You’ll never look back!

‘Cause now we’re going..
Now we’re going!

I said we’re going to Hogwarts,
I’ve got my wand!
Going to Hogwarts,
Just hold on..
Track Name: Under the Stairs
Here I am again, on my own.
The door has closed on me,

Dark is what I know,
A strip of moonlight settles on the floor.
I can make it out from underneath this bolted door.
I wish that I could climb these stairs,
Reach the window, see out there.
But I’m a prisoner and only see the underside,
Imagining the night-time,
And the world that seemed so wide.

CHORUS:
Once I read about the power of night,
A kind of magic sets the world alight.
And I watch the back of the door,
And the moonlight on the floor
And i hope that some day I’ll see
A magic just like that.
I pull a spider off my pillowcase,
Lay down on the bed and start to stare into space.
I close my eyes, begin to drift away,
Far beyond these four walls where I wish I could stay.
If only I could see the sky,
Spend one night that I’m not blind.
But I’m a prisoner and only see the under-side,
Imagining the night-time,
And the world that seemed so wide.

Once I read about the power of night,
A kind of magic sets the world alight.
And I watch the back of the door,
And the moonlight on the floor
And i hope that some day I’ll see
A magic just like that.
Track Name: Me
Writhing inside this skin, this face

So foreign to this place

Nothing is where it’s meant to be

Inside this beast called me

No heart is here,

A clock stopped somewhere long ago

When I split

My soul

Don’t say my name or I will find you

Where ever you hide

Serpentine sounds will sing so free

And sing to you of me

That sound so clear

That never ceasing sense of fear

Knowing I am near
Track Name: The Raid
Plans are made as we make our way to the underground,
Past the goblins and flaming torches we’re in now…
The clock is ticking against us,
Got to get to the horcrux,
Only chance is here, can’t give into fear,
Nothing’s going to stop us!

So impossible, undoable, unreachable
Oh, we got it now! We got it now!
We’ve got to get out!

Pulses race as we can’t escape from the underground,
Left and right we go and we know there’s no way out.
Raging fire before us,
Enormous dragon to help us,
Climb aboard in time, soar toward the sky,
Freedom stretches above us.

So impossible, undoable, unreachable
Oh, we got it now! We got it now!
We’ve got to get out!
Track Name: When the Time Comes
Another day dawns and the sky is still above my head.
I feel the ground below and that’s just how I know it’s not the end.
And when the time comes to say goodbye, I know I’ll cry.

But just remember the story told
All those years unfolding right in front of us,
Don’t let it go, don’t let it go.

Hold together, don’t fall apart,
No matter what you do.
No matter where you go remember that somebody still loves you.
And when the time comes to say goodbye, I know I’ll cry.
But just remember the story told
All those years unfolding right in front of us,
Don’t let it go, don’t let it go.

And when the time comes to say goodbye,
I know I’ll cry.
And when the time comes to say goodbye,
I know I’ll cry.
Track Name: Seventeen
No more talking,
Remember me here,
And stop pretending this will all disappear
Words fail me now.

You’re leaving me
And I know you have to go,
But forgive me if I shed a tear for you
My strength fails me now.

And I cry, I cry when watching you leave
And I’ll try, I’ll try to be the one to fight and breathe
Without you with me.

So happy birthday,
I hope you made a wish
My gift to you is just a kiss
Please don’t fail me now

And I cry, I cry when watching you leave
And I’ll try, I’ll try to be the one to fight and breathe
Without you with me.
Track Name: Fighting
I can’t sleep tonight
Keep tossing in bed
Just keep going over
These thoughts in my head
I know that it’s up to me
To fight the good fight
But nothing can stop these fears
From haunting me at night

Chorus 1

Once again it’s up to me

Fighting demons no one sees

Oh, oh


Things are different now
We see it in him
His smile doesn’t reach his eyes
But he keeps it all in
Just let us share the load,
We’ll stand by your side.
Don’t think that you’re on your own
We’re with you in this fight!

Chorus 2

Why can’t you see that we’re here
To fight with you until the end?
Nothing can stop us from being there
When you most need your friends.

Thing seem darker right now,
But we wouldn’t leave you alone.
Just look around you and see
That when you’re with us, you’re home.



No one can understand
The cross that I bear
I just want somebody
Someone, who’ll be there

[All three] And though we all know
There’s darkness on the way
Together we’re stronger
We’re with you, come what may!

Chorus 1 & Chorus 2
Track Name: Luna's Anthem
I’ve always been true to me
And people said I’m weird
All alone I would wonder why
Why their hearts were closed
To things they did not know

I’m the girl you used to see
On my own beneath the beech tree
Now that has changed
I don’t feel so sad
Because I have friends who care
And now my heart’s repaired.

And I’ll sing this song tonight
Let the darkness turn to light
When I see my friends once more
My spirit starts to soar

It’s funny how things can change
I know that people say I’m strange
But I can’t get hurt now that I have
Their love to keep me strong
I know that I belong

And I’ll sing this song tonight
Let the darkness turn to light
When I see my friends once more
My spirit starts to soar
