So, from your favorite song that reminds you of our Potion's Master to favorite pic, quote or scene, post it has long as it has a Halloween theme.....

My Immortal by Evanescence

I'm so tired of being here, suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave, I wish that you would just leave
Your presence still lingers here and it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now, I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won't seem to heal, this pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me, I've been alone all along

When you cried, I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream, I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me, me, me

Who I Am Hates Who I've Been by Relient K

I watched the proverbial sunrise
Coming up over the Pacific
And you might think I'm losing my mind
But I will shy away from the specifics

Cause I don't want you to know where I am
Cause then you'll see my heart
In the saddest state it's ever been
This is no place to try and live my life

Stop right there!
That's exactly where I lost it
See that line?
Well, I never should've crossed it
Stop right there!
Well, I never should've said that
It's the very moment that I wish that I could take back

I'm sorry for the person I became
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change
I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
Cause who I am hates who I've been
Who I am hates who I've been

I talked to absolutely no one
Couldn't keep to myself enough
And the things bottled inside
Had finally begun to create so much pressure
That I'd soon blow up
And I heard the reverberating footsteps
Syncing up to the beating of my heart
And I was positive that unless
I got myself together
I would watch me fall apart
And I can't let that happen again
Cause then you'll see my heart
In the saddest state it's ever been
This is no place to try and live my life
Stop right there
That's exactly where I lost it
See that line?
I never should've crossed it
Stop right there
I never should've said that
It's the very moment that I wish that I could take back

Stop right there!
That's exactly where I lost it
See that line?
Well, I never should've crossed it
Stop right there!
Well, I never should've said that
It's the very moment that I wish that I could take back

I'm sorry for (Sorry for) the person I became
I'm sorry that (Sorry that) it took so long for me to change
I'm ready to (Ready to) be sure I never become that way again
Cause who I am hates who I've been
Who I am hates who I've been

Who I am hates who I've been
And who I am will take the second chance You gave me
Who I am hates who I've been
Cause who I've been only ever made me

So sorry for (Sorry for) the person I became
So sorry that (Sorry that) it took so long for me to change
I'm ready to (Ready to) be sure I never become that way again
Cause who I am hates who I've been
Who I am hates who I've been

One Week by Barenaked Ladies

It's been one week since you looked at me
Cocked your head to the side and said I'm angry
Five days since you laughed at me saying
Get that together come back and see me
Three days since the living room
I realized it's all my fault but couldn't tell you
Yesterday, you'd forgiven me
But it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry

How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad?
Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad
I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral
Can't understand what I mean? Well, you soon will
I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve
I have a history of taking off my shirt

It's been one week since you looked at me
Threw your arms in the air and said you're crazy
Five days since you tackled me
I've still got the rug burns on both my knees
It's been three days since the afternoon
You realized it's not my fault not a moment too soon
Yesterday, you'd forgiven me
And now I sit back and wait till you say you're sorry

It's been one week since you looked at me
Dropped your arms to your sides and said I'm sorry
Five days since I laughed at you and said
You just did just what I thought you were gonna do
Three days since the living room
We realized we're both to blame
But what could we do?
Yesterday, you just smiled at me
'Cause it'll still be two days till we say we're sorry

It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry
It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry

(I always liked this song, but I found myself wondering today, how do you think the story would have changed if Lily had forgiven Severus in one week? What major or minor changes would have occured? Do you think they could have retained their friendship even with her married to James? Do you think Harry's parents would have both died? Or do you think Severus would have sacrificed himself trying to save them?)

karen, you are one of the best people I've had the pleasure of 'meeting' here on this spot. Just thought that needed to be said. :)


This song is, in my opinion, one of the greatest songs ever recorded. And I can't even explain why.

Golden Earring ~ Twilight Zone

(Somewhere in a lonely hotel room, there's a guy starting to realize that eternal fate has turned its back on him.)
(It's two a.m...)

It's two a.m. (It's two a.m.)
The fear has gone (The fear has gone)
I'm sittin' here waitin' (I'm sittin' here waitin')
The gun still warm (The gun still warm)
Maybe my connection is tired of takin' chances

Yeah there's a storm on the loose, sirens in my head
I'm wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
I cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far?
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone

I'm falling down a spiral,
Destination unknown
A double-crossed messenger,
All alone
I can't get no connection,
Can't get through,
Where are you?

Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
And when the hit man comes
He knows damn well he has been cheated

And he says

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far?
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
When the bullet hits the bone

(instrumental break)

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far?

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse,
Feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far?
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone

---------------------------------

The lines I've italacized and bolded make me think of the final confrontation between Harry and Tom Riddle, when they're circling each other and Harry's telling him that (basically) Severus and Dumbledore tricked him. It has been said that the only thing Tom Riddle feared was death, and an ignominious one at that. But I don't think that's wholly accurate. I think there was something else he feared, and that was being betrayed by someone closest to him. I think deep inside he was terrified that Severus had betrayed him somehow, or would betray him, and I think the screenwriters got it right in their version of The Prince's Tale, when Dumbledore told Severus that he had to be the one to kill him, because only then would Voldemort truly trust him. I think Riddle really was terrified in his last few minutes, because here's Harry Potter alive and taunting him, and he's survived the Killing Curse for a third time. I think the realization struck him, and struck him deep, when Harry stated that Severus had loved Lily his whole life that the only way Harry could have survived everything was if Severus had been protecting him all along. I think the horror for Riddle wasn't just that someone he trusted had betrayed him, but that he had been fooled. Oh yes. Severus Snape had played his role quite well.

@BlackHound: I love your analysis of Tom's fears. But as I'm really superficial, I also love "Twilight Zone!" As soon as I saw that you posted it, the video started playing in my mind. It is such a fun song.
over a year ago BlackHound said…
@jester: LOL! And thank you. Another scene from DH2 that frequently rolls in my head when I think of this stuff is in the boathouse, when Riddle tells him, "only I can live forever." The look on Severus' face makes me feel that it clicked for him, that statement & what Dumbledore had told him about Riddle keeping the snake close to him.

Yeah, neither this song nor band need an introduction.


How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

Now that I know what I’m without
you can't just leave me
breathe into me and make me real
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I've been living a lie, there's nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
only you are the life among the dead

All this time I can't believe I couldn't see
kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul
don't let me die here
there must be something more
bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing I’ve become

I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside

KISS ~ I Was Made For Lovin' You

Tonight I wanna give it all to you
In the darkness, there's so much I wanna do
And tonight I wanna lay it at your feet
'Cause girl, I was made for you
And girl, you were made for me

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me?

Tonight I wanna see it in your eyes
Feel the magic, there's something that drives me wild
And tonight we're gonna make it all come true
'Cause girl, you were made for me
And girl, I was made for you

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me?

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't give it all to you baby
Can you give it all to me?

Can't get enough
I can't get enough
I can't get enough

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me?

Oh, I was made, you were made
I can't get enough
No, I can't get enough

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me
And I can't get enough of you baby
Can you get enough of me?

I was made for lovin' you baby
You were made for lovin' me

@ BH and Jester - I love reading about your songs and what led you to your thoughts. It expands my ideas so very much.

@karenmiller: The Simpsons have used "Radar Love" at least twice that I can think of. So that being another obsession of mine, I watched the one episode that I could quickly find. (In case you're wondering, it's the one where Bart gets a driver's license and goes on spring break!)

@BH: I shamefully admit that I don't know the band nor song that needed no introduction!! However, if you know any obscure 1-hit wonders from the 70's and 80's, I'm all over it!

@Jester - the song is from Evanescence with assist from Paul McCoy from 12 Stones. I love this song. The emotion in it is sometimes overwhelming depending on the mood you are in. Its more of a recent song. If you've every heard Amy Lee from Evanescence, she has some power with her voice.

Tracks of my Tears by Miracles

……
So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace the tracks of my tears
I need you, need you

Since you left me if you see me with somebody else
Seeming like I'm having fun
Although they might be cute there's just no substitute
'Cause you're the only permanent one

Outside I'm masquerading
Inside my hope is fading
Just a clown since you put me down
My smile is my make-up I wear since my break-up with you

So take a good look at my face
You'll see my smile it looks out of place
If you look closer it's easy to trace the tracks of my tears

Anybody know what we are looking

Crime behind the curtain in the
Pantomime hold the line does
Anybody want to take it anymore

The show must go on (2x) yeah
Inside my heart is breaking my
Make-up may be flaking but my
Smile still stays on

Whatever happens I'll leave it
All to chance another heartache
Another failed romance on and on
Does anybody know what we are
Living for

I guess I'm learning I must be
Warmer now I'll soon be turning
Round the corner now outside the
Dawn is breaking but inside in
The dark I'm aching to be free

The show must go on (2x) yeah
Inside my heart is breaking my
Make-up may be flaking but my
Smile still stays on

My soul is painted like the wings
Of butterflies fairytales of
Yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly my friends

The show must go on (2x) I'll face
It with a grin I'm never giving in
On with the show

I'll top the bill I'll overkill I
Have to find the will to carry on
On with the (2x) show the show

Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper

Lyin' in my bed I hear the clock tick
And think of you
Caught up in circles confusion
Is nothing new
Flashback warm nights
Almost left behind
Suitcase of memories
Time after

Sometimes you picture me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're calling to me I can't hear
What you've said
Then you say go slow
I fall behind
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time

After my picture fades and darkness
Has turned to gray
Watching through windows
You're wondering if I'm okay
Secrets stolen from deep inside
The drum beats out of time

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you I'll be waiting
Time after time




And you know, it was so touching that even with Lily married to James, Severus wanted her saved. Her, her son, James, all of them. Save them, Hide them. I've read many a fic, where they imply that Severus realizes he did no truly 'love' Lily and he moves on and 'truly' falls in love with someone else. (don't get me wrong, many of them are very good and well written) But, I'm always reminded that, true love for someone, you want them to be happy, whether that is away from you or not. You want them to be safe, to be happy. And that moment when he begs Albus to save her, to save all of them. Reading the books, that was only one of the moments that truly told me about Severus snape. He loved Lily.

Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis

Closed off from love, I didn't need the pain
Once or twice was enough and it was all in vain
Time starts to pass before you know it you're frozen

But something happened for the very first time with you
My heart melted to the ground, found something true
And everyone's looking 'round, thinking I'm going crazy

But I don't care what they say, I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away but they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein that I keep on closing

You cut me open
And I keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear but they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal is to keep me from falling

But nothing's greater than the rush
That comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness I see your face
Yet everyone around me thinks that I'm going crazy
Maybe, maybe

But I don't care what they say, I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away but they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein that I keep on closing

You cut me open
And I keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it's draining all of me
Oh, they find it hard to believe
I'll be wearing these scars for everyone to see

I don't care what they say, I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away but they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein that I keep on closing

You cut me open
And I keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love

You cut me open
And I keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding, I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love

You cut me open
And I keep bleeding, keep, keep bleeding love


Heard this last night and just went, OMG! That was Severus for Lily. His Deatheater comrades probably didn't except his relationship with Lily, but he didn't give it up. Quite frankly, people that knew them both, probably didn't understand or support them even being friends. And Albus, who had know him from his childhood and all his life, even Albus didn't seem to understand his love of Lily. The movie caught Albus' surprise and questioning when Severus showed his Patronus, After all this time? And Severus still replied, "Always."

And at the end, his emotional 'scars' are revealed for Harry to see.

I can't even go into how almost every verse of this song just touched me so much.

I'd Do Anything For Love by Meatloaf

And I would do anything for love,
I'd run right into hell and back,
I would do anything for love,
I'll never lie to you and that's a fact.

But I'll never forget the way you feel right now
- Oh no - no way - I would do anything for love,
But I won’t do that, I won’t do that, anything for love,
I would do anything for love, I would do anything for love,
But I won’t do that, I won’t do that.

Some days it don't come easy,
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all,
And these are the days that never end.

Some nights you breathe fire,
Some nights your carved in ice,
Some nights you’re like nothing I've ever seen before, Or will again.

Maybe I'm crazy, But it's crazy and it's true,
I know you can save me, No one else can save me now but you.

As long as the planets are turning,
As long as the stars are burning,
As long as your dreams are coming true - You better believe it! -

That I would do anything for love,
And I'll be there until the final act -
I would do anything for love!
And I'll take a Vow and Seal a pact -

Some nights I lose the feeling,
Some nights I lose control,
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls.

Maybe I'm lonely, And that's all I'm qualified to be,
There's just one and only, The one and only promise I can keep.

As long as the wheels are turning,
As long as the fires are burning,
As long as your prayers are coming true - You better believe it - !

That I would do anything for love!
And you know it's true and that's a fact,
I would do anything for love!
And there'll never be no turning back -

But I'll never do it better than I do it with you,
So long - So long - I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
But I won’t do that, I won’t do that!

I would do anything for love,
Anything you've been dreaming of,
But I just won’t do that...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you
Every night of my life - No Way -

Girl : Will you raise me up?
Will you help me down?
Will you help get me right out of this Godforsaken town?
Will you make it a little less cold?

Boy : I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl : Will you hold me sacred?
will you hold me tight?
Can you colorize my life I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it a little less old?

Boy : I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl : Will you make me some magic, with your own two hands?
Can you build an Emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something that I can take home?

Boy : I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl : Will you cater to every fantasy that I've got?
Will ya hose me down with holy water - if I get too hot - ?
Will you take me to places that I've never known?

Boy : I can do that!
I can do that!

Girl : After a while you'll forget everything,
It was a brief interlude, And a midsummer night's fling,
And you'll see that it's time to move on.

Boy : I won’t do that!
I won’t do that!

Girl : I know the territory - I've been around,
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down,
And sooner or later you'll be screwing around.

Boy : I won’t do that!
I won’t do that!

Anything for love, I would do anything for love,
I would do anything for love,
But I won’t do that, I won’t do that.


I guess it a tribute to love that I feel today. And, Severus just symbolizes that for me. Its easy to love someone that loves you back. That, well, that is easy and immediately rewarding. But, to love someone that no longer speaks to you. It love someone that does not love you back the way you want. To love someone so much that their happiness and safety, no matter how much their choices may hurt you, is more important than anything. Real love, in the face of that, well, .....

As I said, guess I just felt the need to pay tribute to his enduring strength and love today.

I Am A Rock Lyrics by Simon And Garfunkel

A winter's day
In a deep and dark December;
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I've built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship; friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island. Don't talk of love,
But I've heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me;
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no one and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain;
And an island never cries.

Desperado by the Eagles

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one but I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feelin' goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin' but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
(Let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it's too late



All the way up to the end of reading the books, I kept hoping for my professor, that, if not love, at least friendship and acceptance would be his. Yes, his reasons for his actions, and his very own personality led him through his life, but, I wanted him to have some sort of closure. A HEA.
But, he always had to walk his path, protecting those that he left behind, there didn't seem to be one chance for him to have peace.

^ Me too :'(. I still hate not only that he dies but how he died. I wanted him to get closure in the end and then to start living. I remember reading the epilogue and still holding on the hope that somehow it would be revealed that Snape had survived after all. An that he too was on that platform seeing one of his children off to Hogwarts...

I made myself cry with the Simon and Garfunkel song. It brought to my mind that image of Snape standing all alone looking down at the students, so I just had to hunt for that image and post it along with the lyrics

Don't You Forget About Me by Simple Minds

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhhh...

Won't you come see about me?
I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby

Tell me your troubles and doubts
Giving me everything inside and out and
Love's strange so real in the dark
Think of the tender things that we were working on

Slow change may pull us apart
When the light gets into your heart, baby

Don't you forget about me
Don't don't don't don't
Don't you forget about me

Will you stand above me?
Look my way, never love me
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down

Will you recognize me?
Call my name or walk on by
Rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
Down, down, down, down

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Ohhhh.....

Don't you try to pretend
It's my feeling we'll win in the end
I won't harm you or touch your defenses
Vanity and security

Don't you forget about me
I'll be alone, dancing you know it baby
Going to take you apart
I'll put us back together at heart, baby

Don't you forget about me
Don't don't don't don't
Don't you forget about me

As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
As you walk on by
Will you call my name?
When you walk away
Or will you walk away?
Will you walk on by?
Come on-call my name
Will you call my name?

I say:
La la la....


I remember hearing this song before I first saw The Breakfast Club. It struck a chord with me and so many of my friends at the time. To me it captures what it felt like to be young, in love, and with a broken heart. I thought I was all song-ed out, but something about I Am a Rock triggered this. So thanks!

I loooove The Breakfast Club! I had this crush on Judd Nelson's character Bender for what seemed the longest time. Note the hair, the nose and snarkiness. It's like I was in training for my future appreciation of Snape :-)
