Harry:
There was a time when life had meaning
Not so long ago
I knew the lines, it was easy being
The star of the show

There was a time when things were fine
I could make wine from water
There was a time when I was happy
When I was Harry Potter

Riddle:
There was a time when I was hopeful
When I was good inside
Everyone said that I was evil
Maybe they were right

I changed my name, I went insane
I never felt so little
I was a fool to think they could love me
When I was Thomas Riddle

Both:
I've fallen from up high
The world has said goodbye
I'm not an angel, not the answer
I'm just going nowhere faster

Harry:
There was a time I was a hero
But that hero's gone
Looking back, I can hardly see him
Everyone's moved on

Both:
Cast me aside, throw me away
Go on, forget yesterday
And I'll try forgetting too

Riddle:
But I wish it was just like it was before

Both:
I wish it was just like it was before

Harry:
Now I've fallen from up high
The world has said goodbye
I'm not an angel, not the answer
How did life become a disaster?

I'm just going nowhere faster

There was a time before, I was adored
By every son and daughter
There was a time when I was happy
When I was Harry Potter
