lyrics

[Verse]
Walking through the bricks to my wildest dreams
Nothing was there I could expect to see
Hagrid took me around showing me everything
Buying loads of treats and scholarly stuff

[Bridge]
He walked away and said, "I'll be right back"
He walked through the door; I was taken aback

[Chorus]
And then I saw you, Hedwig
Snowy feathers through crystal glass
I couldn't believe you're mine
Help guide me in this magical world

[Verse]
We flew off together to Hogwarts and then
Saw such things I could not comprehend
The world around us so mystical,
We stumbled around before we took hold.

[Bridge]
Hermione lent her books and brain
But one thing you had, that no one can claim:

[Chorus]
You were my constant, Hedwig
Holding my ground, when I spun through my mind
You carried more than letters --
You held me when Ron was not around

[Verse]
The years flew by and now I see,
Why what was to come and happen must be
You lived with me through thick and hell
Why was your future not destined so well?

[Bridge]
The flash in the sky, that rent the cage
Accioed your life, and poured in me rage

[Chorus]
But then I saw you, Hedwig,
Falling through the sky
Like a tortured doll
You used to be my Hedwig,
Now where you were,
There's nothing left at all

[Verse]
"So keep this in mind friends:
While this may be a very sad day,
Would she want tears spilled over her? No.
She would want us all to be happy--

[Bridge]
So here's a toast, to Hedwig,
The Greatest Owl Who Ever Lived"

[Chorus]
We watched you fly away, Hedwig
These words were written just for you
We remember now, singing
Of a bird that always would fly true

[Chorus]
And then I saw you, Hedwig,
Falling through the sky
Like a tortured doll
You used to be my Hedwig,
Now where you were,
There's nothing left at all

[chorus x2]

["As long as we keep her in our hearts and in our minds,
Her soul will live on"]
