letter to lester

were you in quarry bay the other day
cos i think i saw you in the subway
or maybe not cos it was just a fifteen-year-old
who looks like the you twenty years ago
you must have grown into a big man now

have you become the person you've always wanted to be
or have you become the person your mother wanted you to be

how about the dream that you dreamed
did you make it or do you fake it
do you still tell anyone about it

so are you leading the life that you've always planned to lead
or are you living a life that only your wife wants to live

how about the book you started to write
did you complete it or delete it
did you lie to anyone about it

it's been a long long long long time
since last i saw your face your smile
it is a long long life
filled up with love and lust and lies
i still remember on that rainy day
how you slowly walked away and cried

have you found the button that you said could reset one's life
or have you learnt to love yourself as you were born to be

how about the songs that you wrote
do you still keep them or did you sweep them away
before they could make their ways to the record companies

it's been a long long long long time
since last i saw your face your smile
it is a long long life
filled up with love and lust and lies
do you still remember on that rainy day
how you slowly turned away and cried

it's been a long long long long time
since last i saw your face your smile
it is a long long life
filled up with love and lust and lies
why did you act like a fool when you're not such a fool
when you let them walk away and cry

how our dreams they walked away and died
