Alec Glassford Some of the most brilliant, catchy, straddles-the-line-between-poignant-and-fun wrock I have ever heard. Favorite track: Sirius/Serious.

Always misread, mistreated, never fitting in I had two left feet in this world I was spinning in Always the girl with the crazy visions Always the girl who read books upside-down Always the girl who ended up sitting by herself Always the girl who hid her frown Always that one girl I may be loony, I may be strange but Some people came along and made sunshine from my rain And now I'm writing the same word Over and over on my walls in gold Things always have a way of turning up in the end In my case, those things were friends I had nothing to offer them except loyalty I really have no idea what they saw in me I'm kind of crazy, but I'm not complaining I may be loony, I may be strange but I'm glad they came along and made sunshine from my rain And now I'm writing the same word Over and over on my walls in gold Things always have a way of turning up in the end In my case, those things were friends I'm still the girl with the crazy visions I'm still the girl who reads books upside-down But I'm no longer by myself 'Cause they came along and turned my world around Now I'm writing the same word Over and over on my walls Now I'm writing the same word Over and over on my walls in gold Things always have a way of turning up in the end In my case those things were friends

I swear one of these days I'm gonna snap And you there will be the first to go 'Cause you wear that stupid little smile When all the while the world is crumbling at our feet Get ready for a side of me that you don't wanna meet Sirius, why can't you be more serious? You have to know your childhood days are long gone I'm delirious, playing mom to you Just how old are you? At least try to play along Be more serious You know I would do most anything for you But oh, it's the way you test my nerve That takes me way over the edge Losing sanity allegedly mine Can't you find a better way to spend your time? Sirius, why can't you be more serious? You have to know your childhood days are long gone I'm delirious, playing mom to you Just how old are you? At least try to play along Be more serious Sirius, I know you're serious But sometimes you know you just don't let it show I'm delirious with all I have to do, But taking it out on you is not the way to go.... but Sirius, why can't you be more serious? You have to know your childhood days are long gone I'm delirious, playing mom to you Just how old are you? At least try to play along Be more serious

You are the voice behind every choice What would I do if I lost you You soothe my hot head and make me glow instead What would I do if I lost you My best friend, my centurion How could I live if I lost you I'm faced with a decision that tears me in two Do I "Come along, Pond" or return to you? But in the blink of an eye my fate is decided The hour glass, it runs out of sand I know what is right but my heart's still divided I have to put the universe back in his hands Goodbye, raggedy man This life seems to confine us The danger, it never goes away And even though it's exciting, sometimes I wish There was somewhere we could just stay This decision tears me in two Do I "Come along, Pond" or return to you But in the blink of an eye my fate is decided The hour glass, it runs out of sand I know what is right but my heart's still divided I have to put the universe back in his hands Goodbye, raggedy man Doctor, promise me you'll never travel alone Doctor, promise me you'll never be on your own Doctor, promise me you'll never travel alone Doctor, promise me you'll never be on your own In the blink of an eye my fate is decided The hour glass, it runs out of sand I know what is right but my heart's still divided I have to put the universe back in his hands Goodbye, raggedy man

Lily Evans 03:48
Lily Evans, please Won't you come here and talk to me Recently you've been invading my dreams And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem You know I've had my eye on you I guess I haven't been too subtle But I just don't know what else I can do You've got my brain completely muddled By this constant, incessant, painful rejection I'm kinda used to girls clamoring for my affection But you, you're different from all them So Lily Evans, please Won't you come here and talk to me Recently you've been invading my dreams And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem I know I'm not your favorite guy And I suppose I can see why you'd say that But you've never seen my vulnerable side So maybe we should just sit down and chat About our plans for the future, our goals and hopes And how you're the one that I see with me the most So Lily Evans, please Won't you come here and talk to me Recently you've been invading my dreams And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem Maybe you'll see another side of me That you might've overlooked You'd be surprised to find an actual heart Inside the misjudged cover of the book Lily Evans, please Even though you'll probably never talk to me I have to at least try to fulfill my dreams And pray that maybe one day you'll see Lily Evans, please Won't you come here and talk to me Recently you've been invading my dreams And I promise I'm not as bad as I seem As I seem, as I seem, as I seem, as I seem, as I seem

Curiosity got to me, and now I'm here Staring at the deepest desire of my heart But it's only a reflection It's nothing that can step out of the glass Nothing that can step into my world It's nothing real, no, it's not real So why do I keep coming back To the place where I'm painfully aware of what I lack Because finally I can bear witness to The life and love I never knew So with this sinking ship I'll go down Happily consumed by my dreams I'll drown Used to live in a place where no one cared about me And that was fine, thought that's just how it was But I have come to realize that I don't have to be unhappy I decide, yeah, I decide So why do I keep coming back To the place where I'm painfully aware of what I lack Because finally I can bear witness to The life and love I never knew So with this sinking ship I'll go down Happily consumed by my dreams I'll drown Her familiar eyes, his untidy hair Small glimpses of the future we'll never share

I saw you standing there, you and your bushy hair Asking 'bout that stupid toad You threw me way off track, I didn't know how to react Talking about that smudge on my nose Little did I know that One day we'd be walking the world together Nothing but necessity could tear us apart Even then I knew I would always come back Wish I'd known that from the start I still remember when, between platforms 9 and 10 I looked at you for the first time You smiled right at me, I returned it politely Not knowing one day you'd be mine, and One day we'd be walking the world together Nothing but necessity could tear us apart Even then I knew I would always come back I wish I'd known that from the start Humble beginnings are all it takes To spark an eternity of love We will never be able to anticipate, but we can always trust That one day we'll be walking the world together Nothing but necessity will tear us apart Even then, I'll know that I will always come back I hope I'll know that from the start Now we're walking the world together Nothing but necessity can tear us apart Even if it does, you know I'll always come back I think I've known that from the start.

What do you do when half of you Is lying motionless in your arms What can you think when you're on the brink Of sinking in your grief I've never been in a situation Where humor can't be found I will never be ready for that Please flip the time-turner around And take me back to the days when my sentences were complete Back to the days when you and I found the funny in everything You said you were alright, Fred, why did you lie? Now I'm left to go through life without you by my side If you really had to go I'm glad that it was with a laugh Positive till the very end, yeah I can find some comfort in that I like to think that we're still identical Even though we're apart 'Cause you will never be truly gone You live on in our hearts But I still wanna go Back to the days when my sentences were complete Back to the days when you and I found the funny in everything You said you were alright, Fred, why did you lie? Now I'm left to go through life without you by my side You said that you were alright That you would survive, that you were okay But I still had to watch that ghost of a smile fade So take me back to the days when my sentences were complete Back to the days when I had you by my side Back to the days when our lives seemed miles wide You said you were okay, Fred, why did you die? Never thought I'd have to say goodbye Goodbye
