Always

The Bravest Man I Ever Knew
                     Ministry of Magic

I have given you a name,
one that shows you can always change
no matter the way or mistake you've made.

Sometimes consequences define your life with hardship.
Will goodness be the banner you raise?
'cause with his last breath,
Severus said: "Take it, take it!"

Living in disguise,
a true wizard on the inside,
not afraid of what he had to do.
He was the bravest man I ever knew.

(Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts.
One of them was a Slytherin.
And he was, probably, the bravest man I ever knew.)

A true wizard on the inside.
On the inside...
The bravest man I ever knew.
A true wizard on the inside.
On the inside...
He was the bravest man I ever knew.

All these things that tie us close,
to what matter most.
We can not let go...

And sometimes consequences define your life with hardship.
Will goodness be the banner you raise?
'cause with his last breath,
Severus said: "Take it, take it!"

Living in disguise,
A true wizard on the inside,
not afraid of what he had to do.
He was the bravest man I ever knew,

(Long ago, I had a teacher. A sallow-skinned Slytherin with long black hair. I hated him and he seemed to hate me too... And though I branded him a coward, he was, in fact, the bravest man I ever knew.)

A true wizard on the inside
(The bravest man I ever knew)
On the inside...
The bravest man I ever knew
A true wizard on the inside
On the inside...
The bravest man I ever knew
Always. Always.
There's so much in one word.
Always. Always.
