Everybody Knows

to the tune of “Everybody Knows” by Sigrid

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody waits with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is waging
Everybody knows Muggle lives are tossed
Everybody knows joy is eclipsed
By the terror of the Dementor mist
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the Ministry is leaking
Everybody knows that you pick a side
Everybody’s got this broken feeling
Of course, a family member just died
Everybody has a power lust
Everybody not knowing who to trust
You’ll be exposed
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that he is chosen
Everybody knows he’s got somethin’ to do
Everybody knows he’s out there somewhere
Oh, a secret mission to pursue
Everybody knows he’s keeping secrets
We just hope there is no weakness
Against our foes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you’ll live forever
If I don’t follow through
Everybody knows just from my scar
And they all wait from afar
Since Voldemort arose
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that the cleanse is coming
Everybody knows that they’re moving fast
Everybody knows that the magical brethren
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows someone is dead
When there is a Dark Mark overhead
If you oppose
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
Everybody knows the hell they’ve been through
From the worry of the Imperious Curse
To the paranoia that ensues
Everybody knows it’s coming apart
The final beats from your loved one’s heart
Before it goes
Everybody knows

Having grown up with Harry since I was twelve years old, it is such a treat to be a part of the best book club any Harry Potter fan could ask for. I graduated in 2016 with a Creative Writing degree and since then have been freelance writing on the side. Outside of the literary world, I love the outdoors, hiking, and binge-watching Parks and Rec for the billionth time.
