Ever since I was a kid
I couldn’t explain the things I did
Thought it would make my family proud
Instead it kind of freaks them out

If there’s a place where I could go
To step outside the status quo
I’d tackle every lesson plan
If I could stop hiding who I am

Petunia told me you’re lying
She just won’t believe you
Says there is no Hogwarts
So Sev, is it really true?

But it’s real for us
It’s real for us
Doesn’t matter what the muggles say
Cause it’s real for us
It's real for us
Oh, it's real for us
It doesn't matter what the muggles say
Cause it's real for us

He says they’ve cast protective charms
To keep the school away from harm
Hidden away from muggle eyes
They couldn’t find it if they tried

I just can’t wait to go and see
So many people just like me
Cause all I’ve wanted for so long
Is to find a place where I belong

It’ll come by owl
A letter just for me
Is this really happening?
Cause it feels just like a dream


We can do magic
Can do magic
Can do magic
If we stand together
Stand together
Stand together
