It must've been in a place so dark you couldn't feel the light

The pain must have been too overwhelming. Something must have happened to you, whatever it was it must have been to hard of you to control. You must have thought this was an easier escape.

Reachin' for you through that stormy cloud

You just had to wait for the clouds to subside. You would have seen the light sooner or later. You could have gotten help. It wasn’t going to stay dark forever.  

Now here we are gathered in our little hometown

We’re all here for you. Right here in Godric Hallows, where your house laid. Your family is all here, along with friends. We all wish we didn’t have to be here, to have you with us.

This can't be the way you meant to draw a crowd

We all know you didn’t want other people to know. You probably didn’t think we cared, we’ll never know. But we do care, we care so much.

Oh, why? That's what I keep askin'

What happened? Was it me, someone else? Was it a girl, a teacher, a friend, what was it? Please, I need to know, was it me?

Was there anything I could have said or done?

Could I have done something? Could i have made you happier? Did you tell me, and I didn’t listen. Were there any signs you were giving us? Did we ignore you, was that why you did it?

Oh, I had no clue you were masking

I had no idea what was happening. I had no idea that you were in pain. Was there some way I could have helped?

A troubled soul, God only knows what went wrong

Why didn’t you ask for help? We thought you were happy. You were so amazing at acting, we didn’t even expect anything.

And why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song

Why did you have to leave us? We love you so much! We need you here. Why did you have to do it?

Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old

Now I won’t know what you would have grown up to be. You didn’t even graduate from Hogwarts. You were so smart, even smarter than me sometimes. Did you do it cause you were a Slytherin? Did it finally get to you? We all still loved you. We were fine with you being in Slytherin.

Roundin' third to score the winning run

You were amazing at Quidditch. You won so many games. You were an amazing Chaser. You could do amazing things while in the air, better than me even.

You always played with passion no matter what the game

You didn’t play to win, you played because you loved the game. I thought it was the same with your life. I thought you loved the game.

When you took the stage, you shined just like the sun

Everyone thought you were brilliant. You beat me at everything. You got more owls than me, got head boy, prefect, and you even made Qudditch captain. Everyone thought you were the star son in the family.

Oh, why? That's what I keep askin'

Could I have helped you at all? I am your brother! You could have told me anything, I wouldn’t judge you no matter what. I would have helped you get though it, I just want to know why.  

And was there anything I could have said or done?

Could I have helped you in anyway? Could I have done anything to make life easier for you? Please, I need to know.

Oh, I had no clue you were masking

I thought you were happy. I thought you loved life. I thought you loved me. Why did you have to leave me?

A troubled soul, oh, God only knows what went wrong

I need to know what was wrong. What made you do this? Was it me? Please, I need to know.

And why you'd leave the stage in the middle of a song

Why? why? please, answer me!

Now the oak trees are swayin' in the early autumn breeze

The cries for you are carried out for miles. Everyone knew what today was. Your funeral, they knew I was burying you, my only brother. My little brother.   

The golden sun is shining on my face

It was to sunny, it should have been raining. This beautiful day shouldn’t be here, if you weren’t here, it shouldn’t be here either.  

The tangled thoughts I hear a mockingbird sing

No one spoke. Everyone was crying in silence, listening to nature take it’s course. Mum and dad have been trying to stay strong, but they look defeated. They couldn’t believe you were gone. Lily is on her knees, crying out to you, she needs you.

Rose looks lost, you were her best friend. She liked you the most out of everyone. She was taking the loss harder than most of the people. She looks as if she wanted to join you, we wont let her, don’t worry.    

And me, I was alone. I refused to be by our parents. I couldn’t bear to look them in their eyes. I was supposed to look over you. You’re my little brother, and now your gone.

This old world really ain't that bad a place

Life isn’t that hard. There are times when everyone wants to leave, but you have to stay strong. You didn’t need to do this.

Oh, why? There's no comprehending

No one will ever know why you did it. Not unless you come back. I just wish you didn’t do it.

And who am I to try to judge or explain?

I still love you brother. I won’t change how I feel about you. You still are my brother, no matter if your not here or not. I love you, for forever, and on.

Oh, but I do have one burning question

I just need to know this one question. Please, I need to know.

Who told you life wasn't worth the fight?

Who did it? Mum and dad always told us to live life to the fullest. So who was it? Was it me? Did I tell you to leave when things got to hard? Please, tell me.

They were wrong, they lied, and now you're gone, and we cried

They were so wrong. We all love you. You’re gone and there’s nothing we can do about it. We can cry, miss you, think about you, but you aren’t coming back, ever.

I’m sure no one will stop crying for days. I know I won’t. Your friends, they will be lost without you. Family dinners will be sad, and empty. You always told the best jokes.

Your birthday, we will spend it crying.

'Cause it's not like you to walk away in the middle of a song

Everyone thought you were so strong. You were fine being a Slytherin, you were fine when you lost a game of Quidditch. When you got rejected you made a joke of it. You were the strongest out of all of us.

Is that why you did it? Did we put to much pressure on you? Was it our fault?

Your beautiful song, your absolutely beautiful song

Your life was so amazing. You had so much going for you. Why did you have to leave us? Just please, I have one question and I need to know.


Authors Note!!

A song fic I wrote out of this amazing, beautiful song by Rascal Flatts. It’s called Why, and it is so, so amazing.
If you didn’t know I made this in James’ point of view, talking about Albus.
I hope you liked it!
Please review!!
