Tired and lonely still we stand
On a road to nowhere
Trapped in a world of endless days
My engine's stalling (Road to Nowhere)

Harry woke up with a start. He had been having a vivid dream that even now as he tried to recall it, couldn't remember anything.

It was like trying to hold water in your hands. The more you try the less you could attain.

He knew Ginny had played a part in his dream; that he could not forget.

It was amazing how when his mind failed him, he could still remember her, everything about her, right down to the last freckle.

Harry sat up and looked around the room. Ron was still snoring in his bed. Harry looked at the clock and it read 6:45 a.m.

He was dreading today. Him, along with Hermione and Ron, had been tirelessly planning for the last few days on attaining Voldemort's last horcrux.

Mentally, Harry ticked off the horcruxes they had already found and destroyed: The ring, the cup, the locket, Nagini, and the diadem.

That only left one more horcrux left. Him.

Body and mind are breaking down
On a road to nowhere
Destiny silent, hear no sound
As I wait forever

He hadn't told anyone. Not even Ron or Hermione. But he knew. He was the last horcrux.

He had been telling Ron and Hermione that there was another horcrux. They thought it was one that they'd have to search for.

They would be out searching for the last horcrux while in reality, they'd be out searching for Voldemort. That was Harry's main goal.

After many weeks of searching through what seemed to be dead ends, he had pinpointed a location on Voldemort's hideout. He just wanted this to be over.

He was no longer afraid to do what needed to be done because he knew that when it was over, everyone would be able to live free of Voldemort and finally live their lives. He wouldn't feel no more pain.

The only thing he regretted was Ginny. He regretted not being able to give her forever. He could still remember the many nights that they would stay up late and talk about a future where they would spend the rest of their lives together. A future that he could no longer promise her. And it broke his heart to know that he would never be with Ginny again.

Farewell, I'll miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes

He slowly got up out of bed to wake Ron.

He walked over to Ron's bed and started to shake his shoulder.

"Wuzza goin on?" Ron said sleepily.

"C'mon Ron," Harry said, "It's time to go.

It took a few more seconds to rise Ron from his stupor. Harry went back to his chest as Ron got dressed.

Harry heard the door open and close and turned around to see Ron was not in the room.

He came back five minutes later telling him that he had went and woken up Hermione.

Cause it tore us apart right from the start
I miss you

There was a tense silence as they finished getting ready.

Hermione came in not much later, ready to go, and it finally hit him; he would never see this place again. He would never look upon any of the inhabitants, his friends, his family, again.

And that realization brought reality crashing down around him.

Feelings have failed me
Left me cold
On this road to nowhere
(Road to Nowhere)

He was leaving everything he knew or loved. How he had the srength to go on he didn't know.

He could still remember Dumbledore's words, "Death is but an adventure Harry. Embrace it because it is just another part of life."

Harry didn't understand it at the time, but he thought he might be finally getting it.

He would go looking for death, because death would surely find him. He wasn't afraid to die anymore. He knew that if he died, then everyone else could live their lives peacefully and without fear that they'd be murdered at any second.

It's time mate," Ron said putting his hand on Harry's shoulder, breaking him out of his thoughts.

"Ok." Hary said quietly.

They gathered everything they needed and made there way down the stairs. As soon as he passed the first floor landing, a lump rose in his throat.

Ginny was just on the other side of that door. He wanted to see her one last time before he left, before he left for good.

But before he had finished thinking this thought, the door handle turned and Ginny appeared, wearing her pajamas and a tank top.

Dreams are my savior
Save me now
Cause I know I'm falling
(Oh yes)

Harry's heart stopped. The look she gave him told him that she knew that they had been sneaking off and also, what they had been planning on doing.

"Thought you'd leave before saying goodbye?"

Harry stood there not knowing what to say.

"We'll be downstairs in the kitchen," Hermione said taking Ron's arm and going down the stairs.

Ginny beckoned him into her room. Harry walked in as Ginny shut the door behind him.

"So," she said, "You're leaving?"

"Yeah," He replied, "This is the last time though.

Farewell I'll miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes

She looked at him as if contemplating what he had said before saying, "You're not coming back are you?"

The tone in her voice suggested that she had already known; how she knew, he didn't know.

He didn't see no point in lying to her now. He needed to get it out of the way and off his chest.

"No," he said quietly.

Cause it tore us apart right from the start
I miss you

"Why didn't you tell me?" she asked with a sad voice.

"I didn't want to hurt you, I knew that if I came and told you, it would be harder for me to leave."

"Don't you think that it wouldn't hurt me if you never said goodbye and the next time I saw you was in a casket?" she asked

She started to cry, softly, and Harry pulled her into his arms.

Candles burn slowly
Flames shine so brightly
Light in the darkness
Save me from madness again

"This is only temporary you know," he said, "You will see me again. I can promise you that.

"I'll have to wait so long," she said sniffling her tears, "I don't want to wait. You promised me a life. You promised me a family when this was all over with.
You've never broken a promise before."

"And I'm not about to now," he said as he kissed her.

She gave into the kiss, and before he knew it, she had pushed him back on the bed.

Only the lonely
Could possibly know me
Heat keeps on rising
Fire engulfs me again




"Ive got to go," Harry said softly as he looked into Ginny's eyes as she layed  across his chest.

"I don't want you to go," she said.

"I don't either, but I have to if we all want this to end.

Keeps on rising

"I love you so much," Ginny said kissing him on the lips.

I love you to," he replied as he returned her kiss.

Farewell I'll miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes

He got dressed and turned to Ginny, "I want you to live your life happily Ginny," he started but Ginny hushed him as she walked over to him.

"Can't we just pretend that you're coming back? Can i pretend that i'll be sitting down at the breakfast table tomorow and that you'll walk up behind me,wrap your arms around me, and kiss me, or that you're just going away for a long vacation? ," she said as she began to sob in his chest.

Harry was suprised and heartbroken. He knew Ginny to be a very high spirited young woman. He'd never seen her cry openly before. But here she was crying into his chest as though she were but a child again.

"I will see you again," he said as she stopped crying, "I promise you that."

He gave her a quick kiss and before his resolve left him, he opened the door and left Ginny forever.

Cause it tore us apart right from the start
I miss you

He walked into the kitchen where Ron and Hermione were talking by the fireplace.

They looked up at him as he entered and Hermione came to him.

"It's gonna be ok Harry," she said as she wiped tears from his face that he hadn't known was there, " We'll make it through this.

Ron nodded and said, "You ready mate?"

"I guess so, Voldemort isn't going to kill himself." Harry said with a small laugh.

They gathered there belongings and walked to the front door.

"We'll be back soon," Harry said to himself.

They walked out the door and closed it behind them.

As the door to the house closed, the door to his heart also closed.

"I'm sorry Ginny."

Farewell I'll miss you
I'm sick of these goodbyes
Cause it tore us apart right from the start
I miss you
