Lyrics: Love, Farewell

April 1, 2012

Snape with Dark Mark in Skywords by Valeria-Johanna,
to the tune of ‘Love, Farewell’
(traditional soldiers’ song)

(You can listen to the song here.)

 

 

I thought I heard our Albus saying,
‘Come, my friend, no more delaying.’
I thought I heard him softly pleading,
‘Severus, come, it’s you I’m needing.’
Love, farewell!

Death is all I have to offer:
If I fail, the worse he’ll suffer,
And the vow for Draco spoken
Kills me uselessly if broken.
Love, farewell!

Love, when all around reject me,
Will the thought of you protect me?
If I pay the price for spying,
Will you be there when I’m dying?
Love, farewell!

I thought I heard the Dark Lord saying,
‘Come, my servant, no delaying.’
I thought I heard him laugh, unheeding,
‘Severus, come, it’s you I’m needing.’
Love, farewell!
