-Albus Percival Wulfrick Brian Dumbledore, in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban


He looks at you from across the bar
He says he want you in his car
You’re not that kinda person
So tonight he's gettin' none.

A cheetah in a lonely room
‘Cause the prey he wants he can't consume
I guess he'll have to find another target
‘Cause you'll never forget

what he did to you
He broke hour heart
He ripped it out and tore it up
Like it was paper

And he walked away
Without a word
You'll sing your sorrow but you're singing to the choir
The world is a big black pit
When the one you loved didn't know what he had

What's the world come to with nothing to sing
‘Cause lately I've found nothing to be writing
I'm too sad to sing
My favorite thing is no thing.

I say I love the world
But you left me curdled
So now it's just a plastered smile
I'll just run away for a while

You left me clingin' for dear life
I said I loved you and you left
The world is crashin' down my dear
So this is what it's come to
What it is I really don't know.
