"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends." - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone


I love you with part of my heart
and some of my soul
I can tell you right now
I won't love you whole

(But maybe,
a chance of
a million to one
A knight in bright armor
and the quest is done...)

I won't love you whole
You're too easily amused
And I've learned too hard
I'm too easily abused

(But maybe,
a chance of
a million to one
With the wind just right
and a lucky ray of sun...)

I'm too easily abused
To be easily attained
If you'd try you'd realize
How lonely you've remained

How lonely you've remained
By touching every soul
Discarding every face
That doesn't make you feel whole

(But maybe,
a chance of
a million to one
If you knock down some walls
and put down your gun...)

That doesn't make you feel whole?
There are more choices still
Slow down before you waste them all
As I know you will

As I know you will
Care for me someday
But for now and for you
I put love away

(But maybe,
a chance of
a million to one
Waiting in our future
for our pain to be done...)
