Come to me and take careful note
Learn the truth, find your resolve
Tell the ones that need to know
Things are headed south

One side dark and one side light
But it don’t pay to live like that
So I toe the line and I do what’s right
I don’t plan to see tomorrow

Ah Lily, Lily, take me in
Are you aware of the shape I’m in?
My lungs they ache, my throat is gone
Ah Lily, Lily, take me in

When at first I learned to speak
I used all my words to hate
With Dad and James and you and me
Oh, but it was such a mistake
Yes, it was such a mistake

That woman, she’s got eyes that shine
Like a pair of glowing polished gems
She tried to help, I said Mudblood
I’ll see you on the other side

Ah Lily, Lily, take me in
Are you aware of the shape I’m in?
My lungs they ache, my throat is gone
Ah Lily, Lily, take me in

Three words I had to say at the end
Look and at and me
What I was then, I’m not today
Look at the things I did

Ah Lily, Lily, take me in
Are you aware of the shape I’m in?
My lungs they ache, my throat is gone
Ah Lily, Lily, take me in

Broken and scarred by lies and war
Your purpose is here, and it’s time to die
The station sets the traveler’s stage
All trains look the same

Three words I had to say at the end
Look and at and me
Look and at and me
Look and at and me
