Track Name: I Open at the Close
I open at the close,
I know things you'll never know.
I open at the close,
Kiss me and I'll show you.

You are not meant to live.
You are only meant to die.

Bone of the father, flesh of the servant
Blood of the enemy
The Dark Lord shall rise again.

I open at the close.
Inside I'm made of stone.
I open at the close,
Kiss me and I'll show you.

You are not meant to live.
You are meant to die.
You are not meant to live,
But I will be by your side.

Well I never got my letter
I was never there for you
I never knew any better
I was never there for you.

But you will always have Fawkes
and Gryffindor's sword
They'll be waiting for you in the common room.
Hold on tight to your friends, my friend.
You have everything to lose.
Track Name: Get Your Hallows Up
Life is scary, but be brave.
Life is fun if you know how to misbehave.
So have another go at it.
Have another butterbeer.
You'll never be alone
You are my Patronus, my dear.

Get your hallows up
Put your cloak on
Get your hallows up
Pick up your wand

Death may give, but Death will take away.
Death will get you back if you laugh in his face.
He plucked me from a tree
And he made an Elder of me.
He flicked his time turner and he made a bloody
Fool of me.

There are children laughing, children dying.
Millions of thestrals flying.

Get your hallows up
Put your cloak on
Get your hallows up
Pick up your wand
Track Name: The Riddle that is Tom
When the vampire came to your door,
You answered and invited it in.
The lips of your princess
The ocher of sunset
You would never see them again.

Now that your heart has marched off to war,
And the augur's counted all of your birds
For all the souls you've collected,
Caressed, resurrected
You can not save yourself with your words.

You are not of Earth, my love.
You were sent from the sun.
You may never know the peace of death, love
But you are not the only one.

I've made stars quake with my hands.
I've counted every grain of sand.
I've wanted and prayed for and murdered my friends.
I have spread myself all over the land.

Are we going to die? Never say goodbye.
Will your soul go out the way birds fly?
Up or down? Up or down?

I know not what you are.
Your hairy heart has traveled far.
Send an owl to the augur, I want it no more.

I know not what you are.
Your hairy heart has traveled far.
Send an owl to the augur
And tell him to keep it locked in a mason jar.
Track Name: Song For Luna
Luna, Luna.

Dry your pretty face
And don't forget to tie your shoelaces tight.
And don't forget!
You're brighter than the moon in space.
Friends like you make everything worth fighting for.

I don't care if they think we're weird
And I don't care if you wear radishes in your ears
And I don't care if you get old and ugly
And stop washing your socks
And grow a beard

You'll always be mine.
Your white rabbits will run through my mind
Until the end of time.
You'll always be mine.

Luna, Luna.
Track Name: We Eat Our Young
I think you know I'm nothing like you.
I'm nothing like anyone you've ever met.
Some things are too horrible to be true
And some things haven't happened yet.

Shut your children's eyes.
Keep them shut until they're blind.

So when the frogs croak "All Hollow's Eve"
And when the crows
Have picked the bones of your beliefs
When you've hidden your most precious memory
Inside of your pensieve

I will be behind you.
I'll always be able to find you.

I fly without a broom.
I am the harbinger of doom.
We will be together soon.

We eat our young,
Here in the forest.
Track Name: Sever Us
The summer breeze,
The crunching of leaves
As I go to meet you

Sever us,
You can try to sever us
But we will never be apart.

I will prove you have no heart.

Voldemort, you have lost.
I will see you at King's Cross.
I will end you, and you will end me.

I can't take this, I'm breaking
O, won't you please end me?

I'm tired of talking to snakes
There's a stag astride the lake
He is watching me sleep
He will be there when I wake

And I, I will stab your seven souls
And I, I will conquer you sevenfold
And you, you are bitter and lonely
And cruel and pathetic and old
And I, I will conquer you sevenfold.

The summer breeze,
The crunching of leaves
As I go to meet you.

Sever us,
You can try to sever us
But we will never be apart.

I will show you what love is.
I will show you it's not so hard.
