Soundtrack Saturday – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling

Soundtrack Saturdays is a little thing where I share a song with you that I think would fit on the soundtrack for the book I’m currently reading. If you’d like to join in, please either leave your soundtrack pick or the link to your soundtrack post in the comments.

Current Read: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

One Sentence Summary: Harry’s 6th year at Hogwarts brings an upswing in his Potions skills and private lessons with Dumbledore.

Soundtrack Song: “Dumbledore’s Song” by Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls

Why I chose this song: I’ve just finished reading Half-Blood Prince and this song so perfectly depicts Harry’s state of mind during the last 50 or so pages. I don’t usually post all the lyrics for soundtrack songs, but I just couldn’t resist sharing them for this song. fyi: it’s full of spoilers.

How can I do this now
With you not here by my side?
You taught me what you could
But I never thought that you would
Be the one to leave me alone.
Who will I turn to when it’s time
To end what He’s begun?
And I feel like I could have done more
If you had let me free,
But you had to be so protective.

Dumbledore
Why have you abandoned me?
With so many horcruxes left
I feel lost at sea.

Picture this if you can:
Having to watch as your mentor dies
And the reason is because
You forced him to drink from a mug
With poison inside.
How could you keep on going on
Knowing you had stopped his life?
And I feel like I could have done more
If you had let me free,
But you had to be so protective.

I know that I will have to pull through
But your lessons can’t be learnt without you.
Why do I lose the ones I love?
I hope I can stay strong.

What song would you add to the soundtrack for this book or the one you’re currently reading?
