To get the full effect of this, you have to know the musical "Secret Garden". If you've never heard of it, go and check it out from the library, borrow it from a musical theatre buff, or better yet, purchase it for yourself! Anyway, this song is really titled "Lily's Eyes" and I didn't even have to change a lot of the lyrics. It's about two brother's that were in love with the same woman, who is now dead. One brother married her while the other just let his anger fester. Of course, I changed who was doing the singing! Just imagine Harry and James Potter singing about the woman that changed both of their lives.

JAMES:

Strangely quite but now the storm simply rests

To strike again

Standing waiting, I think of her

I think of her

HARRY:

Strange, this Lily

She's left my world, yet remains

She lingers on

Something stirs me to think of her

I think of her

JAMES:

From death she casts her spell

All night you hear her cries

And now you've come to know you have her eyes

You have her eyes.

The boy has Lily's emerald eyes

Those eyes that saw him happy long ago

Those eyes that gave him life and hope he'd never known

How can he see the mirror

And miss those emerald eyes

HARRY:

I have her eyes

I have my mother's emerald eyes

Those eyes that closed and left me all alone

Those eyes I fear will never ever let me go

How can see the mirror

And miss those emerald eyes

In Lily's eyes a castle our house seemed to be

And I the bravest knight became

The lady fair was she

JAMES:

He has her eyes

He has my Lily's emerald eyes

Those eyes that looked with love at him and me

Those eyes that always saw me

Always knew I longed to hold her close

And live at last in Lily's eyes

HARRY:

Imagine how she loved me

JAMES:

I longed for the day

We'd live forever happily

HARRY and JAMES:

Would God had let her stay

JAMES: HARRY:

He has her eyes I have her eyes

He has Lily's emerald eyes My mother's emerald eyes

Those eyes that saw me

Those eyes that first I loved so Happy long ago

HARRY and JAMES:

How can I now forget

That once I dared to be

In love, alive and whole

In Lily's eyes

In Lily's eyes

This really doesn't do it justice. You HAVE to hear this song! It's just perfect! If you listen to this song and aren't amazed at the end, then you probably are deaf!
