Doomsday Blue Liedtext

Avada Kedavra, I speak to destroy
The feelings I have, I cannot avoid
Through twisted tongues, a hex deployed on you
That all the pretties in your bed
Escape your hands and make you sad
And all of the things you wish you had, you lose
 
I, I, I know you're living a lie
I, I, I see the scars in your eyes
I, I, I know you're living a lie
I, I
 
I guess you'd rather have a star than the Moon
I guess I always overestimate you
Hoodoo all the things that you do
I'm down, down in my doomsday blues
 
I, I, I know you're living a lie
I, I, I know you're living a lie
 
Avada Kedavra, the thoughts in my hеad
The places I touch when lying in bеd
The visions of you, the words that you said, undo
My heartbeat buried in the ground
And to the strings I bind you're bound
So when you sleep you'll hear the sound (Cuckoo)
 
I, I, I know you're living a lie
I, I, I see the scars in your eyes
I, I, I know you're living a lie
I, I
 
I guess you'd rather have a star than the Moon
I guess I always overestimate you
Hoodoo all the things that you do
I'm down, down in my doomsday blues
I guess you'd rather have a star than the Moon
I guess I always overestimate you
Hoodoo all the things that you do
I'm down, down in my doomsday blues
 
For your romance I'd beg, steal and borrow
It's draining me hollow, you
(I guess you'd rather have a star than the Moon)
You could slow dance me out of my sorrow
(I guess you'd rather have a star than the Moon)
But your favourite colour compared to the others is doom
Doomsday blue
 
Blue (Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue)
Blue (Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue)
Blue, blue, blue, blue
Blue, blue, blue, blue
Blue, blue, blue, blue
Blue, blue, blue, blue
Avada Kedavra, I speak to destroy

Isn't the famous spell "avada kedavra" coming from Aramaic?
Avad (in Hebrew and presumably in Aramaic) — died, got lost.
Ke-davra — as [I] speak, from the root "d-v/b-r" (as in "davar" — word). Ke- — as, like.

Taking into account that Aramaic and Hebrew have been always viewed as "misterious" (languages of Talmud, Kabbalah, Bible after all), I can believe that this conjugation of two words became famous as a spell and even made it to "Harry Potter".🪄

(That's regarding the footnote)
