I held my head down as the lights came up over my head, and the screams of fans came from all over. My heart was thumbing wildly in my chest. It seemed to scream of excitement and fear. Then the beautiful music began to play. I could see the spotlights hit me through my hair and eyelids. I slowly pulled my head up and opened my eyes, and sang.
"A lonely road crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love, purpose hard to find
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
Can't help but wish that I was there, back where I'd love to be, oh yeah."
Screams grew loader as I continued to sing.
"Dear God, the only thing I ask of You
Is to hold him when I'm not around, when I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left him when I found him and now I wish I'd stayed
Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired, I'm missing you again, oh no, once again"
I searched the crowd and saw familiar and unfamiliar faces, and I smiled.
"There's nothing here for me on this barren road
There's no one here while the city sleeps and all the shops are closed
Can't help but think of the times I've had with you
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah"
"Dear God, the only thing I ask of You
Is to hold him when I'm not around, when I'm much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
I left him when I found him and now I wish I'd stayed
Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired, I'm missing you again, oh no, once again."
The music started picking up and people began jumping up and down.
"Well, some search never finding a way
Before long they waste away
I found you, something told me to stay
I gave in to selfish ways
And how I miss someone to hold when hope begins to fade.
A lonely road crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love, purpose hard to find."
"Dear God, the only thing I ask of You
Is to hold him when I'm not around, when I'm much too far away
We all need the person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her and now I wish I'd stayed
Cause I'm lonely and I'm tired, I'm missing you again, oh no, once again"
Th music began to die down and the crowd roared. I smiled and felt the flutter of my heart. I thought I was hearing things, cause the crowd was chanting, "Megan wake up!"
I snapped my head up and my eyes open and saw Professor Neville Prongs looking at me.
"Try to stay awake, Miss Granger."
