My Buddy Tom

I've got a friend.
He's a little strange
'cause I found him in the pages of a diary
that I found in my stacks.
 
Ain't gotta pretend.
I tell him all my  
hopes and dreams and of the lightening bolt
that makes me lose track of the days.
 
I'm amazed--
so patient, so kind.
 
My buddy Tom keeps all my secrets for me;
He keeps me calm when I'm too foggy to see;
When I'm depressed and lonely, he's my company.
This school is so darn big for a red little Weasley.
 
I told him the tale
of how I ended up in school  
all decked out in hand-me-downs,
so i hid my face in the stall.
 
And I don't recall
how I ended up all
drenched in red after Halloween
or those words that appeared on the wall.
 
Through the Fall,
he's taken the time.
 
My buddy Tom keeps all my secrets for me;
He keeps me calm when I'm too foggy to see;
When I'm distressed and lonely, he's my company.
This school is so darn big for a red little Weasley.
 
And I've been losing time,
but he tells me not to mind.
He's been there through it all,
so tell me how could this go wrong?
 
My buddy Tom keeps all my secrets for me;
He keeps me calm when I'm too foggy to see;
When I'm depressed and lonely, he's my company.
This school is so darn big for a red little Weasley.

Author's Note
Now and then I write nerdy songs about stuff I like. Here's a light pop ditty for Harry Potter. Anyone who wants to hear a whole album of my dorkishness can check it out here: https://harrynichols.bandcamp.com/album/this-isnt-the-album-youre-looking-for-2
