Track Name: They Won't Let My Wand Through Airport Security
I planned a trip to see my friends but my broomstick snapped in two
I failed my Apparition test and I hate traveling by Floo
I thought that flying in a plane would be a lot more fun than this
I didn't know about the rules, and now I'm surely gonna miss...

It's more trouble than it's worth, Muggle transport's such a pain
I wish I could Confundus them just to get onto the plane
I swear I'm not gonna hex you, that's not what I'm about
I just wanna board this plane. Man, I just wanna get out
If only I was in the line with my ticket, hassle-free
But they won't let my wand through
They won't let my wand through
They won't let my wand through airport security

I almost used Obliviate but I think that's against the law
I tried to tell them it was safe but a weapon's all they saw
I left the airport with my wand, but they took my dignity
I just wanted to see my friends. I guess it wasn't meant to be

It's more trouble than it's worth, Muggle transport's such a pain
I wish I could Confundus them just to get onto the plane
I swear I'm not gonna hex you, that's not what I'm about
I just wanna board this plane. Man, I just wanna get out
If only I was in the line with my ticket, hassle-free
But they won't let my wand through
They won't let my wand through
They won't let my wand through airport security
Track Name: Expecto Patronum
Get out your wands, we'll learn something new
It'll cheer you up when you feel blue
So think of a happy memory
And when you're ready say with me:

I knew I had to write a song
To cheer me up when things go wrong
So hold my hand and sing along:

Expecto Patronum, make dementors go away
Expecto Patronum, use this spell to save the day
When life gets rough you're not alone
With us you'll always have a home
Your friends are here and you can show 'em
How to cast Expecto Patronum

In another language, this spell means
"I await a guardian" and so it seems
When the silver mist turns into
Something that knows what you've been through
You can't help but smile
Even if it's been a while

I knew I had to write a song
To cheer me up when things go wrong
So hold my hand and sing along:

Expecto Patronum, make dementors go away
Expecto Patronum, use this spell to save the day
When life gets rough you're not alone
With us you'll always have a home
Your friends are here and you can show 'em
How to cast Expecto Patronum

This spell is always there
At the tip of your tongue
I know it can be hard to learn
Just concentrate, I know you can
And think of all the happiness you've earned

Expecto Patronum, make dementors go away
Expecto Patronum, use this spell to save the day
When life gets rough you're not alone
With us you'll always have a home
Your friends are here and you can show 'em
How to cast...

Expecto Patronum, make dementors go away
Expecto Patronum, use this spell to save the day
When life gets rough you're not alone
With us you'll always have a home
Your friends are here and you can show 'em
How to cast Expecto Patronum
Track Name: Kiss That Witch
The snow is cold but it's warm inside
This room is filled with all my friends
We're singing, drinking, celebrating
Tonight's the night when this year ends
There's wizard rock, of course there is
We wouldn't have it any other way
It's the only way to throw a party
On the last December day

I'm dancing, smiling, in the crowd I see her there
Dressed in black and gold, and I can't help but stare
Everyone is counting down, the ball will drop without a hitch
And there's just one thing on my mind:
At midnight I wanna kiss that witch

Who's this girl? I need to know
I want to ask her for her name
Maybe take her for a dance
And find out if she feels the same
I walk toward her, my heart beats fast
Try to speak but trip over my tongue
Why is talking to pretty girls
So scary when you're young?

I'm dancing, smiling, in the crowd I see her there
Dressed in black and gold, and I can't help but stare
Everyone is counting down, the ball will drop without a hitch
And there's just one thing on my mind:
At midnight I wanna kiss that witch

And then she reaches for my hand
I'm so nervous I almost miss
She leans in closer whispering,
"Will you be my New Year's kiss?"
I can't believe my ears but then
The countdown gets to one
And with a shout of "Happy New Year!"
Just like that the year is done

I'm dancing, smiling, in the crowd I see her there
Dressed in black and gold, and I can't help but stare
Everyone is counting down, the ball will drop without a hitch
And there's just one thing on my mind:
At midnight I wanna kiss that witch

I'm dancing, smiling, in the crowd I see her there
Dressed in black and gold, and I can't help but stare
Everyone has counted down, the ball, it dropped without a hitch
And there's just one thing on my mind:
At midnight I kiss that witch
Track Name: Accio Books
If you've ever wanted to get lost but never leave your home
If you want to make new friends when you're all alone
There are places you can go, don't judge them by their looks
Raise your wand and say this spell: Accio Books

There's a magic found in books that you can't get anywhere else
If you're into fantasy then you can learn some spells
Or maybe you like sci-fi, technology and space
No matter what your preference is, you can always find a place

If you've ever wanted to get lost but never leave your home
If you want to make new friends when you're all alone
There are places you can go, don't judge them by their looks
Raise your wand and say this spell: Accio Books

When you study history, non-fiction is for you
Read about what's in the past and learn a thing or two
From pets to food to gardening, books will always share
Just go to a library, you can find them there

If you've ever wanted to get lost but never leave your home
If you want to make new friends when you're all alone
There are places you can go, don't judge them by their looks
Raise your wand and say this spell: Accio Books
Track Name: Autumn and the War
Ashes fall in red and gold
They have a story to be told
The embers bring in September
Glowing leaves they start to fall
A breeze runs through the dining hall
We shiver and quiver

It's far too soon to forget
The people that we lost and yet
The seasons change
It seems so strange

We're living through the autumn
We made it past the war
At the time it felt so right
To prove what we were fighting for
I feel so empty in my heart
The wind is cold, the trees are bare
Oh how I wish I could forget
All the things that happened there

I can still see the flames
I'm starting to forget the names
Of those who died, those who lied
Shouting spells and keeping low
Breathing fast but moving slow
We hid from destruction

It's far too soon to forget
The people that we lost and yet
The seasons change
It seems so strange

We're living through the autumn
We made it past the war
At the time it felt so right
To prove what we were fighting for
I feel so empty in my heart
The wind is cold, the trees are bare
Oh how I wish I could forget
All the things that happened there
Track Name: Lumos
Ready your Patronus Charm
We'll bring together all our friends
We will show the world we know
This isn't how our story ends
Walk with me, I'm here with you
I'll be your safety through the dark
We're rallying, we'll show them all
This is how we leave our mark

The Ministry has fallen
But we're not alone
Now's the time to stand and fight
For our friends, family, and home
Raise your wand, I'm by your side
We'll make it through the darkest night
Just say Lumos and we'll fill
The darkness with our strongest light

Find your team and get to work
We'll cast Protego all day long
Together we will help to fix
The things that we have gotten wrong
We fight with love instead of hate
We'll educate those that we can
So get your parchment, quill, and ink
Let's get to work and make a plan

The Ministry has fallen
But we're not alone
Now's the time to stand and fight
For our friends, family, and home
Raise your wand, I'm by your side
We'll make it through the darkest night
Just say Lumos and we'll fill
The darkness with our strongest light
Track Name: Gryffinclaw Girlfriends
At Hogwarts in the same year, in different Houses though
Two witches who are dating just want you to know
There is nothing that they cannot do while standing side by side
They make Hogwarts a better place with courage, love, and pride

The way they love each other is really just the best
Don't call Luna loony or you'll get yourself hexed
All of the support they give never really ends
It's Ginny and Luna forever, Gryffinclaw Girlfriends

Ginny's main supporter while flying on the pitch
Is Luna Lovegood's lion hat, and underneath the witch
Who joined the DA, learned to fight Death Eaters at her side
Who'd rather fix her broken ankle than run away or hide

The way they love each other is really just the best
Don't call Luna loony or you'll get yourself hexed
All of the support they give never really ends
It's Ginny and Luna forever, Gryffinclaw Girlfriends

Ginny tells her everything, they stay up late at night
Talking, planning, holding hands until the dawn's first light
Her face is painted on the top of Luna's bedroom ceiling
When Luna's gone, she misses that sweet romantic feeling

The way they love each other is really just the best
Don't call Luna loony or you'll get yourself hexed
All of the support they give never really ends
It's Ginny and Luna forever, Gryffinclaw Girlfriends
Track Name: Trans Wizard
I'm a nonbinary wizard
I'm a genderfluid witch
I don't know what to call myself
Except for maybe "wix"
It seems as if we're harder to see
Than a polar bear in a blizzard
We need representation 'cause
My best friend's a trans wizard

Hogwarts is a magic place
Where I get to be me
But there are issues that come with
My identity
Like whether I should try to pet
The unicorns in class
Or if the staircase in my dorm
Will choose to let me pass
Or if I should wear dress robes
To dance at the Yule Ball
Or if it's way too stressful
To decide to go at all

I'm a nonbinary wizard
I'm a genderfluid witch
I don't know what to call myself
Except for maybe "wix"
It seems as if we're harder to see
Than a polar bear in a blizzard
We need representation 'cause
My best friend's a trans wizard

We are not explicit content
And we are not not safe for work
We're human just like all of you
So don't you be a jerk
I wish that Hogwarts offered
A course on gender studies
So everyone would be just fine
With my and my trans buddies
I'll never be Head Boy or Girl
'Cause those labels don't fit me
And please use they/them pronouns
You don't have to be witty

I'm a nonbinary wizard
I'm a genderfluid witch
I don't know what to call myself
Except for maybe "wix"
It seems as if we're harder to see
Than a polar bear in a blizzard
We need representation 'cause
My best friend's a trans wizard

Track Name: Extras
You know we didn't choose to be
Extras in your story
There's so much that we could do if you'd just let us
We're surrounded by red and gold
And to us it's getting old
We'll never win, it's always Gryffindor or Slytherin
Well I can say we've had enough
Sincerely Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff

My House crest is an eagle
Our colors, bronze and blue
Yes, I am in Ravenclaw
But they don't have a clue
Our mascot's not a raven
And silver's not our color
Representing wit and learning
Our House is like no other
I've saved so many Galleons
'Cause I refuse to buy
Warner Brother's merchandise
It's not Ravenclaw pride

We didn't choose to be
Extras in your story
There's so much that we could do if you'd just let us
We're surrounded by red and gold
And to us it's getting old
We'll never win, it's always Gryffindor or Slytherin
Well I can say we've had enough
Sincerely Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff

Hufflepuffs get picked on
Everywhere they go
Somehow they will never be
The star of any show
Cedric was our window
To show Hufflepuff pride
But we all know what happened there
(Spoilers: he died)
The way that our society
Treats Hufflepuff as a bore
It's just so demeaning
They deserve so much more

We didn't choose to be
Extras in your story
There's so much that we could do if you'd just let us
We're surrounded by red and gold
And to us it's getting old
We'll never win, it's always Gryffindor or Slytherin
Well I can say we've had enough
Sincerely Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff
