WE ARE YOUNG -

Give me a second I

I need to get my story straight

My friends are in the bathroom

Getting higher than the empire state

My lover she is waiting for me

Just across the bar

My seat's been taken by some sunglasses

Asking about a scar

Severus watched across the bar at Three Broomsticks, he could see Lily and Potter talking, Lucius, Narcissa and Bellatrix had gone to the bathroom.

He could see James talking to Lily, talking about him of course, maybe about what he had done a few months back, calling Lily a mud-blood.

And I know I gave it to you months ago

I know you're trying to forget

But between the drinks and subtle things

The holes in my apologies

You know

I'm trying hard to take it back

He thought that this song playing in the background really made sense, he regretted what he had done so badly. He also agreed that she was trying to forget it. He took a sip of his firewhiskey, he thought about all his sloppy apologies. How he wished he could take it all back.

So if by the time

The bar closes

And you feel like falling down

I'll carry you home

He knew that she'd be drunk by the end of the night and if she needed someone to take her home, he would do it willingly.

Tonight

We are young

So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter

Than the sun

He finished his drink and asked for another, he would lose control tonight he didn't care anymore, watching Lily with James burnt holes in his heart, he was going to try and have fun.

Tonight

We are young

So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter

Than the sun

He took his drink and sipped tentatively, his eyes wandered back to Lily. She was grinning at Potter's lame jokes, the drink burnt his throat and he just sat there watching them.

And I know that I'm not

All that you got

I guess that I

I just thought

Maybe we can find

New ways to fall apart

He knew he wasn't good enough for her, he would never be. But he thought about going to her right then and maybe apologizing and going back to being friends, it wouldn't be like before but it would be much better than not talking at all.

But our friends are back

So let's raise a cup

Cuz I found someone to carry me home

When he wanted to get up, Lucius said "Severus here you are! Waitor get us four more drinks"

The waitor bustled around the bar to get the drinks.

Narcissa and Bellatrix introduced a girl to Snape, and that temporarily drove Lily out of his mind.

Tonight

We are young

So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter

Than the sun

He thought about spending time with this new girl, it was better than brooding over Lily, she was anyway talking to Potter, he smiled shyly at the new girl.

Tonight

We are young

So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter

Than the sun

She wasn't Lily, but she was better than nothing, he pushed away his broken heart and tried to make most of his time.

Carry me home tonight

Just carry me home tonight

Carry me home tonight

Just carry me home tonight

Lily watched Sev, chatting with that brown-haired girl, he seemed to be having a good time. She knew she should be listening to James, he was so much better, she was mad at Sev but still he had never given her such a cold-shoulder.

The moon is on my side

I've no reason to run

So will someone come and carry me home tonight?

Severus felt much better now that he had this replacement for Lily, it would be his way of getting over Lily, so he asked her if she wanted to see him in his dormitory after the party.

The angels never arrived

But I can hear the choir

So will someone come and carry me home

Lily saw Severus asking her to see him later, she knew it was over between them, he had put an end to it. She had decided that she deserved better and gave James a kiss.

Tonight

We are young

So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter

Than the sun

Severus watched as she kissed him, and he kissed her back, he should have been the one kissing her.

Their eyes caught for a brief moment, when he knew that she had sealed their fate, this was it.

Tonight

We are young

So let's set the world on fire

We can burn brighter

Than the sun

Lily looked away from Snape into James's warm eyes, with so much love. She realized one thing, she had chosen right, Severus might have been a good friend but James was the one she truly loved.

So if by the time

The bar closes

And you feel like falling down

I'll carry you home tonight.

James smiled at Lily, she returned his smile.

When the party ended, Lily leant on James as they walked down the street holding hands in close proximity, Severus watched them go wishing and yearning to be in Potter's position. He hoped that she would look back but instead she placed a kiss on Potter's cheek stamping on his heart once again, and this time for good.

THE END

AN: Please review!

When I listened to this song, I thought about it from Snape's point of view.

Poor Snape

Just so you know, the song is We are young Fun ft. Janelle Monae.

It's an awesome song, try listening to it some time
