I’d love to live in a bookstore
Where all the books could be mine
Reading chapter after chapter
Until the end of time

I’d love to live in a bookstore
The characters come alive
Waking up through the night
Till the bookstores arises at five

I’d love to live in a bookstore
Vanquishing the bad guys
From Voldemort to President Snow
By my hand, they’ll die

I’d love to live in a bookstore
Each word coming off the page
Breathing, living, loving
Not bound by reality’s cage

I’d love to live in a bookstore
Where my mind can be set free
To explore the vast worlds
That the books offer to me

I’d love to live in a bookstore
With a bookmark in my hand
Wielding it like a wand
All the magic at my command

I’d love to wander in Hogwarts
Making friends with Harry Potter
Conquering Dementors
With an expecto petronum

I’d love to explore Panem
Puncturing animals with a bow
Snaring traps with the victor
Katniss Everdeen

I’d love to be a demi-god
Wielding a godly weapon
Percy Jackson at my side
Together, defeating Kronos

I’d love to live in a bookstore
Where all the books could be mine
Reading chapter after chapter
Until the end of time…
