Spend all your time waiting

For that second chance

For a break that would make it okay

As Hagrid took Harry to Dumbledore, he looked at the baby boy. "He 'as a chance. Jus' what 'is parents would've wanted", Hagrid said to himself.

There's always some reason to feel not good enough

And it's hard at the end of the day

I need some distraction, or a beautiful release

Memories seep from my veins

While he'd been in Azkaban, Sirius had never had one happy thought. All the happy memories were gone, and now all he could see was the painful ones. Losing his friends.... being taken to Azkaban...... seeing the wrecked house..... almost being expelled after that joke on Snape.......

Let me be empty, oh, and weightless and maybe

I'll find some peace tonight

Cho tried to put Cedric at the back of her mind. It had been 5 months, she was now in her sixth year... she needed to go on.

In the arms of the Angel

Fly away from here

Sirius got on Buckbeak. "How can I ever thank..."

"GO!" Shouted Harry and the other girl... what was her name? Mione? Hermione?

He'd never been that good at names... he flew, promising to see Harry again. And he hoped he would.

From this dark cold hotel room

And the endlessness that you fear

A narrow escape. Again. It seemed Sirius's life was full of them. The first time, it had been harder, with all the Dementors.... now it might still be hard, but if Sirius kept thinking how he couldn't fail James's son, he might stay stronger.

You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie

You're in the arms of the Angel

May you find some comfort here

Hagrid and Harry rowed across the lake. Hagrid was glad he'd saved Harry from those terrible Muggles. He'd be happier at Hogwarts.

So tired of the straight life, that everywhere you turn

There's vultures and thieves at your back

Storm keeps on twisting

Harry wasn't sure he liked being "The Boy Who Lived." It seemed he always had to watch for danger- and now, everyone was at risk. You keep on building the lies that you make up for all that you lack. It don't make no difference.

Cho told everyone she was over Cedric. But her roommates especially knew she wasn't. When she felt especially upset, she'd excuse it by saying "Oh, I just have a headache." Or something. She couldn't let everyone think she was a wimp...

Escape one last time

It's easier to believe

In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness

That brings me to my knees

Remus Lupin was looking at old pictures. He wasn't feeling all that well- it was a full moon tonight. He wasn't sure why he was looking at them; he just felt he should. Then he stumbled across a huge picture from when he was a boy. He saw Sirius, with his longer, black hair, James, with his short, messy hair, Lily, on the short side, with dark red hair, Remus himself, light brown hair, Arabella, short blonde hair, and Pettigrew... the traitor. Remus stared at them, and started to weep.

In the arms of the Angel

Fly away from here

From this dark cold hotel room

And the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie

You're in the arms of the Angel

May you find some comfort here

Cho and Harry had become closer.. it wasn't love, but it was definitely a sudden friendship. Harry sometimes felt embarrassed when he realized how he'd always had a crush on her... it wasn't there anymore, though. Harry didn't know if it was because of Cedric or because he'd matured.

You're in the arms of the Angel

Cho, Harry, Ron and Hermione were coming back from Hagrid's. It was very dark by now. Cho looked at the sky, which was filled with stars, and smiled sadly.

"What's wrong?" Ron asked. Hermione glared at him, knowing it was probably about Cedric.

"Oh, it's just... Cedric and I used to look at the stars a lot. I remembered how he said that if anything happened to him, he'd send me a message." Cho frowned. "It's like he somehow knew..."

May you find

For a few minutes, they all stared at the sky. Cho felt herself hold onto Harry's hand. They looked at each other. Harry murmured to himself "Cedric, Mom, Dad, show us that everything's okay."

That second, a shooting star crossed the sky.

Some comfort here.

Sirius stared at the star; He'd just been thinking about James. "James?" The star seemed to go slower, and he could've sworn it blinked. An hour away, Remus Lupin, in his unfortunate Werewolf form, saw the exact same thing.

You're in the arms of the Angel

May you find some comfort here.
