You can't tell me that you're really happy with the way things have turned out
Five years later, and neither of us has gone anywhere
If we're no better apart then we were together, then why did you have to leave?
Chasing some stupid petty dream
You and me both
How much better are we for it?
Would we have really been any less fulfilled in the monotony of some boring normal life?
The tv told us otherwise
When we were young and so full of hope and stupidity
Its beautiful bubbly characters reaching out for their dreams with all their might
And I thought I should do that too
I thought it must be the only way
I think I would have been happier as an accountant
Or whatever other boring job I could have found
With a peaceful, steady life, quietly finding what small joys I could in it for myself
I know that you would have been happier too, even if you won't admit it
I sent an email to you last week, something to this effect, but you never wrote back
But then again, I never had a way with words
I'm not sure that you're even still using the same account
It's been so long since I've seen you, we probably wouldn't really know each other anymore
Our 'dreams' tore us apart
They took what we had and gave us nothing in return
Stupid, so stupid
How much have you spent on yours so far?
And when was the last time I saw you on tv?
I can't help but laugh at how dumb and cliché it all is
But how can you resist when they all speak of it so highly
Raise it up on their highest pedestal as if it's the most important thing in the world
What is the most important thing in the world? Anything?
I remember when we were young and we talked about what it would be like when we grew up
"Alone and defeated and struggling just to pay rent" somehow never came up
I could die right now and have never lived
Is this how everyone feels? How sad, they don't tell you that when you're young
Five years since I left home, and already I've given up
I wonder if you've given up too
Or if you're still happy and hopeful like I remember you
I guess you remember me like that too
How could we have both started out so stupid?
It's funny isn't it?
