Track Name: A Way of Turning Up
Always misread, mistreated, never fitting in
I had two left feet in this world I was spinning in

Always the girl with the crazy visions
Always the girl who read books upside-down
Always the girl who ended up sitting by herself
Always the girl who hid her frown
Always that one girl

I may be loony, I may be strange but
Some people came along and made sunshine from my rain

And now I'm writing the same word
Over and over on my walls in gold
Things always have a way of turning up in the end
In my case, those things were friends

I had nothing to offer them except loyalty
I really have no idea what they saw in me
I'm kind of crazy, but I'm not complaining

I may be loony, I may be strange but
I'm glad they came along and made sunshine from my rain

And now I'm writing the same word
Over and over on my walls in gold
Things always have a way of turning up in the end
In my case, those things were friends

I'm still the girl with the crazy visions
I'm still the girl who reads books upside-down
But I'm no longer by myself
'Cause they came along and turned my world around

Now I'm writing the same word
Over and over on my walls

Now I'm writing the same word
Over and over on my walls in gold
Things always have a way of turning up in the end
In my case those things were friends
Track Name: Sirius/Serious
I swear one of these days I'm gonna snap
And you there will be the first to go
'Cause you wear that stupid little smile
When all the while the world is crumbling at our feet
Get ready for a side of me that you don't wanna meet

Sirius, why can't you be more serious?
You have to know your childhood days are long gone
I'm delirious, playing mom to you
Just how old are you?
At least try to play along
Be more serious

You know I would do most anything for you
But oh, it's the way you test my nerve
That takes me way over the edge
Losing sanity allegedly mine
Can't you find a better way to spend your time?

Sirius, why can't you be more serious?
You have to know your childhood days are long gone
I'm delirious, playing mom to you
Just how old are you?
At least try to play along
Be more serious

Sirius, I know you're serious
But sometimes you know you just don't let it show
I'm delirious with all I have to do,
But taking it out on you is not the way to go.... but

Sirius, why can't you be more serious?
You have to know your childhood days are long gone
I'm delirious, playing mom to you
Just how old are you?
At least try to play along
Be more serious
Track Name: Goodbye Raggedy Man
You are the voice behind every choice
What would I do if I lost you
You soothe my hot head and make me glow instead
What would I do if I lost you
My best friend, my centurion
How could I live if I lost you

I'm faced with a decision that tears me in two
Do I "Come along, Pond" or return to you?

But in the blink of an eye my fate is decided
The hour glass, it runs out of sand
I know what is right but my heart's still divided
I have to put the universe back in his hands
Goodbye, raggedy man

This life seems to confine us
The danger, it never goes away
And even though it's exciting, sometimes I wish
There was somewhere we could just stay

This decision tears me in two
Do I "Come along, Pond" or return to you

But in the blink of an eye my fate is decided
The hour glass, it runs out of sand
I know what is right but my heart's still divided
I have to put the universe back in his hands
Goodbye, raggedy man

Doctor, promise me you'll never travel alone
Doctor, promise me you'll never be on your own
Doctor, promise me you'll never travel alone
Doctor, promise me you'll never be on your own

In the blink of an eye my fate is decided
The hour glass, it runs out of sand
I know what is right but my heart's still divided
I have to put the universe back in his hands
Goodbye, raggedy man
Track Name: Lily Evans
Lily Evans, please
Won't you come here and talk to me
Recently you've been invading my dreams
And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem

You know I've had my eye on you
I guess I haven't been too subtle
But I just don't know what else I can do
You've got my brain completely muddled
By this constant, incessant, painful rejection
I'm kinda used to girls clamoring for my affection
But you, you're different from all them

So Lily Evans, please
Won't you come here and talk to me
Recently you've been invading my dreams
And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem

I know I'm not your favorite guy
And I suppose I can see why you'd say that
But you've never seen my vulnerable side
So maybe we should just sit down and chat
About our plans for the future, our goals and hopes
And how you're the one that I see with me the most

So Lily Evans, please
Won't you come here and talk to me
Recently you've been invading my dreams
And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem

Maybe you'll see another side of me
That you might've overlooked
You'd be surprised to find an actual heart
Inside the misjudged cover of the book

Lily Evans, please
Even though you'll probably never talk to me
I have to at least try to fulfill my dreams
And pray that maybe one day you'll see

Lily Evans, please
Won't you come here and talk to me
Recently you've been invading my dreams
And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem
As I seem, as I seem, as I seem, as I seem, as I seem
Track Name: Mirror of Erised
Curiosity got to me, and now I'm here
Staring at the deepest desire of my heart
But it's only a reflection
It's nothing that can step out of the glass
Nothing that can step into my world
It's nothing real, no, it's not real

So why do I keep coming back
To the place where I'm painfully aware of what I lack
Because finally I can bear witness to
The life and love I never knew

So with this sinking ship I'll go down
Happily consumed by my dreams I'll drown

Used to live in a place where no one cared about me
And that was fine, thought that's just how it was
But I have come to realize that I don't have to be unhappy
I decide, yeah, I decide

So why do I keep coming back
To the place where I'm painfully aware of what I lack
Because finally I can bear witness to
The life and love I never knew

So with this sinking ship I'll go down
Happily consumed by my dreams I'll drown

Her familiar eyes, his untidy hair
Small glimpses of the future we'll never share
Track Name: Walking the World
I saw you standing there, you and your bushy hair
Asking 'bout that stupid toad
You threw me way off track, I didn't know how to react
Talking about that smudge on my nose
Little did I know that

One day we'd be walking the world together
Nothing but necessity could tear us apart
Even then I knew I would always come back
Wish I'd known that from the start

I still remember when, between platforms 9 and 10
I looked at you for the first time
You smiled right at me, I returned it politely
Not knowing one day you'd be mine, and

One day we'd be walking the world together
Nothing but necessity could tear us apart
Even then I knew I would always come back
I wish I'd known that from the start

Humble beginnings are all it takes
To spark an eternity of love
We will never be able to anticipate, but we can always trust

That one day we'll be walking the world together
Nothing but necessity will tear us apart
Even then, I'll know that I will always come back
I hope I'll know that from the start

Now we're walking the world together
Nothing but necessity can tear us apart
Even if it does, you know I'll always come back
I think I've known that from the start.
Track Name: Dear Fred (Live at LeakyCon)
What do you do when half of you
Is lying motionless in your arms
What can you think when you're on the brink
Of sinking in your grief
I've never been in a situation
Where humor can't be found
I will never be ready for that
Please flip the time-turner around

And take me back to the days when my sentences were complete
Back to the days when you and I found the funny in everything
You said you were alright, Fred, why did you lie?
Now I'm left to go through life without you by my side

If you really had to go
I'm glad that it was with a laugh
Positive till the very end, yeah
I can find some comfort in that
I like to think that we're still identical
Even though we're apart
'Cause you will never be truly gone
You live on in our hearts
But I still wanna go

Back to the days when my sentences were complete
Back to the days when you and I found the funny in everything
You said you were alright, Fred, why did you lie?
Now I'm left to go through life without you by my side

You said that you were alright
That you would survive, that you were okay
But I still had to watch that ghost of a smile fade

So take me back to the days when my sentences were complete

Back to the days when I had you by my side
Back to the days when our lives seemed miles wide
You said you were okay, Fred, why did you die?
Never thought I'd have to say goodbye
Goodbye
